Live at Daryl’s House is back for another season. Did I mention that? Always a little suspicious of people who wear sunglasses inside.

Also, Tool played Toronto a couple of times this week, the second show Alex Lifeson from Rush joined them for a song. The crowd, predictably, went bananas.

Glass Tiger gets into holiday spirit for Victoria show Monday

 

Glass Tiger will perform Monday at the McPherson Playhouse in Victoria.
 
 
 
A few tickets left, but it's sold pretty well.
 
 
Someday
Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) **
Thin Red Line
I’m Still Searching  <  still a killer song - VIDEO:  https://youtu.be/psq...k7HtDv7gxKYcrZL
Diamond Sun
 
 
 
** Vallance composed "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" with the band, while Bryan Adams provided backing vocals. Frew - "On the very first day that we met Jim Vallance, he picked us up at the airport and to break the ice asked us what we were listening to. One was Tears for Fears. We went to his house and drank tea and listened to some tunes. 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World' came on and we really liked the shuffle beat. So we went into the studio and based on this shuffle beat, we wrote 'Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)'. First day, first song."

From Vegas to Victoria: Illusionist Vitaly is living the dream

 

Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders has enjoyed a successful international run and will stop Saturday at the University of Victoria’s Farquhar Auditorium.
 

VITALY: AN EVENING OF WONDERS

 

When: Saturday, Dec. 9, 7 p.m.
Where: Farquhar Auditorium, University of Victoria
Tickets: $45 from tickets.uvic.ca

He got there eventually. Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders has enjoyed a successful international run, and will stop Saturday at the University of Victoria’s Farquhar Auditorium. The show, which features levitation, sleight of hand, and comedy, had a four-month stretch at Manhattan’s Westside Theatre in 2018, under the stewardship of esteemed theatre producer Daryl Roth.

 

The historic venue once served as the launching pad for Penn & Teller, the magicians who were fooled by Beckman — twice — on TV during their reality competition show on the CW network, Penn & Teller: Fool Us. The appearance gained Beckman considerable clout in the profession.

Taylor Swift fan quoted $3,716 for 2 nights in Vancouver motel

 

The province says it'll reach out to hotels to discuss fair pricing for major events after gouging complaints

Oh?

But Tesla charging $90k for a car one day, then dropping the price $10k a few days later is not gouging? That’s ok?

What exactly is the difference?

Isn’t this just supply and demand? What on earth does the province have to do with any of this.

It looks bad, when mom and pop AirBnBers were just labelled as the cause of problems, while hotels, which stand to benefit from the AirBnB crackdown, are charging $3,716 for a two night stay in Vancouver.

 

$1,858/night gets you a literal one-of-a-kind oceanfront mansion on AirBnB.

Two of Canada’s most famous musicians have filed a lawsuit against their former bandmates, alleging they are misleading the public who are coming to see them perform.

 

Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman have filed a lawsuit for more than $20 million against former Guess Who bandmates Jim Kale and Garry Peterson, along with the current band members, over their use of the Guess Who name. The suit was filed on Oct. 30 in California.

 

 

Cummings and Bachman are alleging the defendants have assembled a band of hired musicians they call a “cover band” to perform, record albums and advertise performances using The Guess Who band name and trademark, and are “falsely misleading” the general public by giving the impression Cummings and Bachman are performing with the group.“Defendants’ devious design to mislead the public is pervasive and widespread, including giving statements in interviews creating the false impression that the Cover Band is affiliated with or includes Plaintiffs,” the lawsuit reads.

 

https://winnipeg.ctv...0 in California.

 

 

Bachman, Cummings, Kale and Peterson performed in the Guess Who during the 1960s and 1970s. Bachman left the group in 1970, while Cummings left in 1975, with the group disbanding not long after. The foursome reunited for several performances over the years.

 

Kale registered a trademark for The Guess Who name in 1986, and created a partnership with Peterson over the name in 2005. The lawsuit alleges Kale and Peterson formed a “Cover band” to perform as the Guess Who and record and release albums. The new band is made up of Peterson, Derek Sharp, Leonard Shaw, Michael Devin and Michael Staertow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can very easily see both sides of the story here.  On one hand, sounds like the less famous members might very well have a right to the band's name and even legacy.  And just because the two most famous members are not in the band and now want the name back, does not make that right or legal.

Guess Who founding members say false advertising claims 'meritless,' ask judge to toss lawsuit

 

Lawsuit launched by Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings alleges 'cover band' touring under Guess Who name

 

https://www.cbc.ca/n...fence-1.7064085

 

 

Two founding members of the Guess Who are asking a California judge to throw out a lawsuit against them filed by the band's two best-known members, arguing claims of false advertising by Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings are "meritless," since band lineups change all the time.

 

Bachman and Cummings accused their former bandmates, former bassist Jim Kale and drummer Garry Peterson, of deceiving fans by touring under the Guess Who name in a lawsuit filed in late October in the U.S. District Court in California.

 

Kale and Peterson were among the founding members of the Winnipeg band, which produced hit songs like American Woman and These Eyes and became the first Canadian group to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970.

 

Kale has not performed with the latest incarnation of the band — which Bachman and Cummings's lawsuit refers to as "the cover band" — since 2016, and Peterson makes infrequent appearances with the group, according to suit.

 

But in a recent court filing, the defendants argue they've always been upfront about the band's numerous member changes and have never advertised Cummings and Bachman as being part of the current lineup. 

 

"Consumers who see an ad for a concert by the Guess Who would not reasonably assume that Bachman and Cummings are performing merely because they were in the band many years ago," says the defendants' memorandum. 

 

"And of course, fans of the Guess Who — the advertising's target audience — know Bachman and Cummings have not been in the band for decades."

 

_____________________

 

The Guess Who's website says its current lineup includes Peterson, Derek Sharp, Michael Staertow, Teddy Andreadis and Greg Smith. 

 

Either Kale or Peterson have led the band since Cummings left in 1975, performing hundreds of shows and releasing new albums as the Guess Who, their court document says. 

 

"As a result of their continuous use of the name 'the Guess Who' for decades, Kale and Peterson indisputably own the trademark rights to the name and hold multiple federal trademark registrations," it says.

Bryan Adams has split from manager Bruce Allen.

 

 

A Dec. 18 article by reporter David Farrell in Canada Billboard broke the news, although no official release has been given.

 

Calls to Bruce Allen Talent offices on Gastown’s Carrall Street went to a recording stating it is closed for the holidays. Adams is no longer under the artist roster of the company, which includes Michael Bublé, Jann Arden and others.

 

Rumoured to have started with a handshake back in 1979, the Adams-Allen connection saw a young singer from North Vancouver become a global superstar.

 

Under Allen’s guidance, Adams is estimated to have record and singles sales in excess of 100 million. In Canada alone, the singer has 25 top-15 singles, including such classics as Summer of ’69, Run To You and the massive 1991 ballad (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.

After running an opinion piece questioning Taylor Swift's sexuality, The New York Times quickly learned what it means to have bad blood with a devoted fan base.

Swifties went scorched earth on the publication, irate that they would publish an article suggesting Swift might be gay. The entirety of the piece was a probe into Swift's every move since becoming famous, positing that certain decisions or statements made by Swift were actually subtle clues referencing her hidden sexuality.

A representative for Swift did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.

The article generated massive backlash on social media, with users sharing their vitriol.

You'd think her fan base wouldn't care what her sexual orientation or gender identity is.

They don't care, but they love fighting online against big corps.
