Diamond's gonna lose this one big time, and probably be shamed out of town. Big backfire in the near future for this goon.

jim diamond is a pretty 'real' cat. in my opinion there are three man-pillars of current detroit rock... Jim Diamond, Jack White, Mick Collins... yeah there are other great bands, but these guys did a lot to further the "detroit scene" as a whole... Such as pruducing other bands, getting lesser bands signed, going on tour with small time detroit bands to help them out... These guys have each done ALL of these things... With this in mind, it is Jack who should be shamed out of town... he's the one who left. .andy.

so the guy had a bad contract, now he realizes that he missed out on a lot of money, and now he's sueing?

in my opinion he just wasted a lot of money in legal fees.

I wouldn't form any opinions either way on this case at this point. Lots of facts and details you might not know about yet.

Chub, since the clear implication of your post is that you know something the rest of us poor assholes don't, why don't you share it with the rest of the f'ing class, big shot.

I'm sorry you read my post that way Ravine. I just don't like to see people coming to judgement without knowing the facts. That goes for any case. I know a little about this case, but not enough to even take sides yet myself. It should be interesting to see how it pans out.

Wow, Ravine, you think that someone in Detroit might actually have some insider information on this situation? A little sugar might have helped to open Chub up, but instead you insult him. He could be Jack White himself, or even Jim Diamond. Who ever Chub is, I hope he received a little package on his door step and is enjoying it ;)

Wait a minute. Before you all jump on me for insulting Chub, let me point out that the way the post reads now is not the way it read, earlier. The phrasing of the original post was condescending; Chub has since altered it, and now I look like a prick, which of course I am, and Czar is probably right about the caffeine, but don't judge my response by the way Chub's post currently reads.

There are a few people who are plugged into the development of Detroit, and some who are plugged into the auto industry, etc. Chub and Matt-the-deuce are two fellas plugged into the music industry. If Chub says to hold off judgement, maybe we should. He doesn't have to tell me why, I believe him.

I know caffeine, and I say, have another shot of expresso. The polyphenols are good for ya.

The Gories should sue The White Stripes for stealing their sound and style.

The Gories should sue the Stripes the Stooges should sue the Gories, the Velvet underground should sue the Strokes, the supremes should sue destiny's child, every 60's garage group should sue all these half ass "mtv garagies" Every rapper should sue every other one, Music is all about influence, nothing is original anymore. Unless Diamond wrote the lyrics or the 3 chord progressions, he has no case!
