Spike Lee To Direct James Brown Movie; Wolfgang's Vault Slapped With Lawsuit
James Brown's body hasn't even gotten cold yet, and Spike Lee is talking about directing the Soul Man's biopic. The word is, James Brown has granted Spike full access to his music. Of course, who wouldn't, if there was a movie to be made?
On another note, Wolfgang's Vault, the museum of free online recordings of classic rock shows which also sells all kinds of memorabilia, has been sued by Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, and Santana to stop access to the recordings. The attorney for Wolfgang says "We believe while this lawsuit will attract a lot of headlines it has no basis or fact in law whatsoever. Wolfgang's Vault bought all of this decades' old material legally, paid their rightful owner and own all the rights necessary to conduct its business. We fully expect to be victorious in the court of law."
