Musicians and their Ego's
Just got done reading the December '07 issue of the Rolling Stones and I am disappointed to hear that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are filing a lawsuit against Showtime because one of their shows, Californication, just so happens to be the name of one of the Chili Pepper's albums. The lead singer is quoted as saying "For some TV show to come along and steal our identity is not right." What? Stealing your identity? I think what he meant to say is that "we are now greedy and our egos have overcome us so we will do anything we can to get more money/publicity." This is almost as bad as Metallica filing a lawsuit against a company that made a nail polish named "metallica". What does this mean to me? It means that I no longer respect the Chili Pepper's and they will no longer be getting any of my hard earned money.
