Yes it ’tis! Trivia Tuesday for June 22nd! Generously brought to us every Tuesday morning by all the Groovey people @ Omnivore Recordings! Your most perfect destination for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! However! Before we get into this week’s all new Trivia Quiz, we’d like to recognize all the brilliant “Trivsters” who chimed in on last weeks question! Which was of a lyrical nature and all about Bob Dylan’s breakout 60’s classic “Like A Rolling Stone” First in with ALL the right answers as he’s been doing for three years was the fantastic, fast and always first Mr. Fred Vogel! You always keep the keep in “Keep on Keepin’ On” Got that? Following Fast Fred with a round of applauds for Fred was Owen, Jeff Conroy and Edmund Simmons! Thanx for your support Gents! Mr. Curtis Stone also weighed in, Thanx Curtis! And this week we’d like to offer a couple of big SMS “High Fives to Owen and Mr. Mark Chapman for a couple of the most interesting story’s we’ve enjoyed here at SMS! Thanks to you both for contributing such interesting info last week!
But now! It’s time for this week’s new Trivia Quiz! When the 60’s arrived they kicked open the doors of creativity delivering a new level of originality, diversity as well as individualism! However with all that art fashion and music consuming our life and time it set a new bar and opportunity for “Lawsuits! ( primarily copyright infringement cases) And, yes this weeks question is about some of the more infamous and notorious lawsuits involving many of your favorite and most popular songs from the 60’s! Here’s how it works, we’ll give you a list of plaintiffs and defendants. You match them up and then give us the song titles’ that lie at the center of the suit! All right Perry Mason, here are your Plaintiffs… and Defendants! Lastly, for the more litigious readers among us and to achieve SMS Super Genius status, which way did the court rule in each case ?
1) Chuck Berry
2) Ray Davies
3) Randy California
4) Matthew Fischer
5) Ronnie Mack
2) The Doors
3) Brian Wilson / Mike Love
4) Robert Plant / Jimmy Page
5) Gary Brooker / Keith Reid
In summary, here’s what we need:
1) Match the Plaintiff with the appropriate defendant ?
2) Give us the titles to each of the two songs at the center of each suit, and indicate whether it’s the plaintiff’s song or the defendants song ?
3) For the more serious “Legal Eagle’s among us, tell us how the courts ruled in each of the five lawsuits ?
Editors note, to be clear, in one of our cases only one song was involved between the Plaintiff and Defendants!…
