Here’s the information I promised re: the 1/16/98 Shoe Suede Blues gig and taping, straight from the producer:

DATE: Friday, 1/16/98
TIME: starting time 7:30pm
LOCATION: Norris Theatre, Rolling Hills Estates
ADDRESS: 27570 Crossfield Drive (on the corner of Indian Peak Blvd. and Crossfield)
PHONE: 310-544-0403
PRICE: $15.00 per ticket, Reserved seating
ARTISTS PERFORMING: Shoe Suede Blues and Jimmy “Preacher” Ellis

Shoe Suede Blues will be performing about an hour, as will Jimmy Ellis. (For those of you unfamiliar w/ the blues, the producer described Ellis as “one of the greatest blues singers alive today.”) The ticket covers the cost of BOTH performances and you’re encouraged to give BOTH due respect with your presence for the entire event.

It *is* a concert setting but WILL be broadcast nationally on COX communications. COX has about 3,500,000 subscribers across the nation, including (but as far as I know, not limited to) areas such as San Diego, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, and Washington DC. As soon as I have information re: air dates for this broadcast, I will make the information known.

I’ll make sure to pass along any other pertinent information as soon as I receive it!

DISH: Adams’ ‘Hitchhiker’ Flags Ride At Disney
By Michael Fleming
—– —– —– —– —– —–
DOUGLAS ADAMS flags ride at Disney for “Hitchhiker” … Legal fangs.
—– —– —– —– —– —–
NEW YORK (Variety) – The success of science-fiction comedies from “Men in Black” to “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” has made the time ripe for the screen adaptation of the Douglas Adams sci-fi cult novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Hollywood Pictures president David Vogel has purchased screen rights to the book, with “Austin Powers” helmer Jay Roach to direct and Caravan’s Roger Birnbaum to produce. Adams will write the script with Roach, with Vogel hoping to be in preproduction this time next year, to make it a summer event film for 2000.

“The single most substantial frustration of my entire career was that this was not a movie,” said Adams’s longtime literary agent Ed Victor, who with CAA’s Bob Bookman closed a Disney deal he called “substantial and special.” The piece has succeeded as a novel, radio play, computer game and TV show (a BBC adaptation, starring Peter Jones and Simon Jones, aired in the U.S. in 1982). But the bigscreen has been a different story.

“For nearly 20 years, I went around saying there’s this great science-fiction comedy where earthlings and aliens mingle, and they’d say yes, maybe, no,” said Victor. “But after ‘Men in Black,’ they were all asking how can I get a sci-fi comedy where earthlings and aliens mingle, and there it is, laying in the road like a golden nugget.”

The novel centers around Arthur Dent, who lays himself in front of a bulldozer that is preparing to flatten his house, to make room for a highway. Suddenly Dent is whisked away by Ford Prefect, an alien researching “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” It turns out Planet Earth is similarly scheduled to be flattened to make way for an intergalactic
bypass.

Dent becomes a galaxy traveler who discovers that mice actually created Earth as an experiment that didn’t work out. For their next, they want Dent’s brain and he’s soon racing across the galaxy to get away from them.

Vogel said the novel is highly adaptable and that Roach has the right take. “It’s a timeless book, which works in people’s consciousness and is appropriate for the millennium as people wonder if there’s anything else out there,” Vogel said.

Caravan’s Birnbaum was brought the book by his execs Jon Glickman and Derek Evans, and Roach brought in the book separately to Vogel. Also for Vogel, Roach is about to direct an untitled David E. Kelley script about hockey, to star Russell Crowe (L.A. Confidential).
Once that puck is in the nets, Roach will write “Galaxy” with Adams. Roach is repped by
ICM’s Paul Haas. Adams has worked on two different drafts so far, one with Ivan Reitman
and former Monkee Mike Nesmith. Vogel said they’ll start fresh, but Nesmith will
maintain some kind of “godfather” role, with Adams exec producing with Robby Stamp.

SESAC Files Copyright Infringement Action Against Atlanta Concert Promoters

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ — SESAC, Inc., the second oldest of the three
United States music performing rights organizations, announced today that is
has filed a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement against Atlanta-based
concert promoters Alex Cooley, Peter David Conlon and three associated
companies.

The SESAC suit, filed on January 9, 1998 in the United States District Court
in Atlanta, alleges the defendants violated the copyright laws by giving an
unlicensed and unauthorized public performance of copyrighted songs written by
SESAC-affiliated songwriter Neil Diamond. The infringements occurred during a
Monkees concert on September 20, 1997, at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in
Atlanta.

According to the complaint, over a period of several months, the defendant
concert promoters were offered a license agreement by SESAC that would have
authorized the performance of all compositions in the SESAC repertory,
including the Diamond songs. Defendants, however, refused to take the SESAC
license just four days before the Monkees concert.

The SESAC complaint seeks damages for willful infringement of copyright,
reimbursement of SESAC’s costs and attorneys’ fees and an injunction against
further infringements.

“SESAC proudly serves the needs of copyright owners and music users,” said
Patrick Collins, senior vice president, licensing, SESAC. “In its long
history, SESAC has not had to sue very often in order to protect the
copyrights of its affiliates. However, when its songwriters’ and publishers’
intellectual property rights are willfully infringed, SESAC is obligated to
pursue the necessary legal action. It is important that all music users
obtain appropriate authorization prior to performing copyrighted works. This
is especially so for music professionals, such as concert promoters, whose
stock and trade are copyrights.”

A copy of the Atlanta lawsuit may be obtained by contacting Henry R. Kaufman,
SESAC’s senior vice president and general counsel, at 212-586-3450. Licensing
information may be obtained by contacting Collins at 615-320-0055.

SESAC, founded in 1930, has headquarters in Nashville, with offices in New
York City and London (http://www.sesac.com).

Subject: “I’m a Believer” CD

On the recent Flashback/Rhino CD, “I’m a Believer and Other Hits,” much
attention has been focussed on its inclusion of the much-anticipated first
release of “Ceiling In My Room.” However, the CD also contains two other
rarities that are not quite as obvious:

1.) The only CD release of the original mono single mix of “The Girl I Knew
Somewhere,” which, in my opinion, is superior to the stereo mix available
on other CDs.

2.) The stereo version of “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You” which first
appeared on the 1969 Colgems “Greatest Hits” LP and has been unavailable in
the US since Arista’s “Then and Now” and “Greatest Hits” collections went
out of print a few years ago.

1998 Council On Ideas Announces Five Members For Biennial Gathering

Jane Alexander, Ana Maria Cetto, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Stephen Jay Gould and

Robert D. Kaplan to Convene in Santa Fe, NM July 17

Council’s Purpose is to Determine and Articulate the Singular Issue of

Overriding Importance of Our Time

SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Jane Alexander, former head of the
National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)and Tony Award-winning and Emmy and
Academy Award-nominated actress; Dr. Ana Maria Cetto, professor of physics and
biology at the University of Mexico; Henry Louis Gates Jr., professor of
English and chairman of Afro-American studies at Harvard University; Stephen
Jay Gould, professor of geology and zoology at Harvard; and Robert D. Kaplan,
two-time Pulitzer Prize Nominee and contributing editor of The Atlantic
Monthly have been announced as the members of the 1998 Council on Ideas. The
Council, held every two years, was founded in 1992 by philanthropist/artist
Michael Nesmith and is an operating program of the Gihon Foundation, a family
foundation established in 1976 by his mother, the late Bette Graham, inventor
of Liquid Paper.

The Council members will convene over the weekend of July 17 at a ranch
outside Santa Fe, NM and prepare a written statement articulating the singular
issue of overriding importance of our time. Nesmith says, “The position
statement that the Council presents is important not only because it is the
product of five distinguished thought leaders thinking about the issues of the
day, but it also tends to focus the global cultural imperative and give it a
voice. This is the kind of work that is the province of philanthropy — only
philanthropy can make something like the Council happen in a neutral
environment.”

A few highlights from previous Council statements

* 1996: “…the solutions begin with the lifelong human capacity to enjoy
and share the process of learning. Learning must become a means to bridge
social fragmentation. Finally we need to take responsibility for the way we
act on our learning… Learning and education are not the same. All too often
educational institutions, while trying to transmit information and skills,
extinguish curiosity and the delight in learning. Learning is too important
to be left to educational institutions alone.”

* 1994: “Government employees are not the enemy; the enemy is government’s
failure to manage complexity. In other words, the enemy is bureaucracy rather
than bureaucrats… A governmental system can succeed only if it makes
stakeholders of all its citizens.”

* 1992: “The highest human purpose is always to reinvent and celebrate the
sacred. What once the shaman did for the tribe, we must together do for the
world.”

Previous Council members have included architect Frank Gehry, Washington Post
Deputy National Editor Roberto Suro, `78 Nobel Prize in physics co-winner Dr.
Arno Penzias (now Lucent Technologies’ Chief Researcher), Pulitzer Prize-
winning author N. Scott Momaday, Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson (President of New
York’s Institute for Intercultural Studies) and Pulitzer Prize-winning
playwright Wendy Wasserstein (“The Heidi Chronicles,” “The Sisters
Rosensweig”).

After the formal presentation of the position statement on Sunday, July 19,
Council members will be available for questions in a casual and open forum.
Council members receive a $5,000 honorarium for their participation in the
event, as well as first class travel and accommodations for themselves and a
guest.

DISH: Adams’ ‘Hitchhiker’ Flags Ride At Disney

NEW YORK (Variety) – The success of science-fiction comedies from “Men in Black” to “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” has made the time ripe for the screen adaptation of the Douglas Adams sci-fi cult novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Once that puck is in the nets, Roach will write “Galaxy” with Adams. Roach is repped by
ICM’s Paul Haas. Adams has worked on two different drafts so far, one with Ivan Reitman
and former Monkee Mike Nesmith. Vogel said they’ll start fresh, but Nesmith will
maintain some kind of “godfather” role, with Adams exec producing with Robby Stamp.

SESAC Files Copyright Infringement Action Against Atlanta Concert Promoters

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ — SESAC, Inc., the second oldest of the three
United States music performing rights organizations, announced today that is
has filed a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement against Atlanta-based
concert promoters Alex Cooley, Peter David Conlon and three associated
companies.

The SESAC suit, filed on January 9, 1998 in the United States District Court
in Atlanta, alleges the defendants violated the copyright laws by giving an
unlicensed and unauthorized public performance of copyrighted songs written by
SESAC-affiliated songwriter Neil Diamond. The infringements occurred during a
Monkees concert on September 20, 1997, at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in
Atlanta.

According to the complaint, over a period of several months, the defendant
concert promoters were offered a license agreement by SESAC that would have
authorized the performance of all compositions in the SESAC repertory,
including the Diamond songs. Defendants, however, refused to take the SESAC
license just four days before the Monkees concert.

The SESAC complaint seeks damages for willful infringement of copyright,
reimbursement of SESAC’s costs and attorneys’ fees and an injunction against
further infringements.

“SESAC proudly serves the needs of copyright owners and music users,” said
Patrick Collins, senior vice president, licensing, SESAC. “In its long
history, SESAC has not had to sue very often in order to protect the
copyrights of its affiliates. However, when its songwriters’ and publishers’
intellectual property rights are willfully infringed, SESAC is obligated to
pursue the necessary legal action. It is important that all music users
obtain appropriate authorization prior to performing copyrighted works. This
is especially so for music professionals, such as concert promoters, whose
stock and trade are copyrights.”

A copy of the Atlanta lawsuit may be obtained by contacting Henry R. Kaufman,
SESAC’s senior vice president and general counsel, at 212-586-3450. Licensing
information may be obtained by contacting Collins at 615-320-0055.

SESAC, founded in 1930, has headquarters in Nashville, with offices in New
York City and London (http://www.sesac.com).

Subject: “I’m a Believer” CD

On the recent Flashback/Rhino CD, “I’m a Believer and Other Hits,” much
attention has been focussed on its inclusion of the much-anticipated first
release of “Ceiling In My Room.” However, the CD also contains two other
rarities that are not quite as obvious:

1.) The only CD release of the original mono single mix of “The Girl I Knew
Somewhere,” which, in my opinion, is superior to the stereo mix available
on other CDs.

2.) The stereo version of “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You” which first
appeared on the 1969 Colgems “Greatest Hits” LP and has been unavailable in
the US since Arista’s “Then and Now” and “Greatest Hits” collections went
out of print a few years ago.

1998 Council On Ideas Announces Five Members For Biennial Gathering

Jane Alexander, Ana Maria Cetto, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Stephen Jay Gould and

Robert D. Kaplan to Convene in Santa Fe, NM July 17

Council’s Purpose is to Determine and Articulate the Singular Issue of

Overriding Importance of Our Time

SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Jane Alexander, former head of the
National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)and Tony Award-winning and Emmy and
Academy Award-nominated actress; Dr. Ana Maria Cetto, professor of physics and
biology at the University of Mexico; Henry Louis Gates Jr., professor of
English and chairman of Afro-American studies at Harvard University; Stephen
Jay Gould, professor of geology and zoology at Harvard; and Robert D. Kaplan,
two-time Pulitzer Prize Nominee and contributing editor of The Atlantic
Monthly have been announced as the members of the 1998 Council on Ideas. The
Council, held every two years, was founded in 1992 by philanthropist/artist
Michael Nesmith and is an operating program of the Gihon Foundation, a family
foundation established in 1976 by his mother, the late Bette Graham, inventor
of Liquid Paper.

The Council members will convene over the weekend of July 17 at a ranch
outside Santa Fe, NM and prepare a written statement articulating the singular
issue of overriding importance of our time. Nesmith says, “The position
statement that the Council presents is important not only because it is the
product of five distinguished thought leaders thinking about the issues of the
day, but it also tends to focus the global cultural imperative and give it a
voice. This is the kind of work that is the province of philanthropy — only
philanthropy can make something like the Council happen in a neutral
environment.”

A few highlights from previous Council statements

* 1996: “…the solutions begin with the lifelong human capacity to enjoy
and share the process of learning. Learning must become a means to bridge
social fragmentation. Finally we need to take responsibility for the way we
act on our learning… Learning and education are not the same. All too often
educational institutions, while trying to transmit information and skills,
extinguish curiosity and the delight in learning. Learning is too important
to be left to educational institutions alone.”

* 1994: “Government employees are not the enemy; the enemy is government’s
failure to manage complexity. In other words, the enemy is bureaucracy rather
than bureaucrats… A governmental system can succeed only if it makes
stakeholders of all its citizens.”

* 1992: “The highest human purpose is always to reinvent and celebrate the
sacred. What once the shaman did for the tribe, we must together do for the
world.”

Previous Council members have included architect Frank Gehry, Washington Post
Deputy National Editor Roberto Suro, `78 Nobel Prize in physics co-winner Dr.
Arno Penzias (now Lucent Technologies’ Chief Researcher), Pulitzer Prize-
winning author N. Scott Momaday, Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson (President of New
York’s Institute for Intercultural Studies) and Pulitzer Prize-winning
playwright Wendy Wasserstein (“The Heidi Chronicles,” “The Sisters
Rosensweig”).

After the formal presentation of the position statement on Sunday, July 19,
Council members will be available for questions in a casual and open forum.
Council members receive a $5,000 honorarium for their participation in the
event, as well as first class travel and accommodations for themselves and a
guest.

TAKE THE MONKEES TO SCHOOL OR WORK IN
RHINO HOME VIDEO’S BRAND NEW MONKEES LUNCH BOX

Deluxe, Limited-Edition Collector’s Item Due In Stores March 17
Contains Special VHS and Jigsaw Puzzle

LOS ANGELES – Tired of carrying your lunch to work or school in one of
those boring brown paper bags? Well, your worries are over. Impress your
friends and coworkers with one of Rhino Home Video’s brand new,
limited-edition MONKEES METAL LUNCH BOXes. This instant collector’s item
will be available March 17 at all retail locations, and through RhinoDirect
at 1-800-432-0020.

The 8″x7″x4″ metal lunch box, with a suggested retail list price of $39.95,
will bring back memories of those days as a child when you probably had,
well, a Monkees lunch box. However, this item is quite a bit different
from the one you might remember. Rhino has placed inside the package a
special 110-minute VHS tape featuring four very special Monkees television
series episodes, and a Monkees jigsaw puzzle.

Each episode on the VHS tape was selected by a different band member as his
favorite. In addition to being able to view the complete, uncut version of
the episode, fans will also be able to hear each of the four Monkees
explain – in newly recorded, never-before-seen footage – exactly why the
episode was their favorite.

Davy’s episode: Hitting The High Seas – Out of work, The Monkees take jobs
as sailors on a lawless ship. Features the song “Daydream Believer.”
Originally broadcast 11/27/67.

Micky’s episode: The Frodis Caper – The Monkees foil an evil plot to
control people’s minds with TV. This, the final episode of The Monkees TV
series features Rip Taylor and Tim Buckley. Originally broadcast 3/25/68.

Peter’s episode: Monkees vs. Machine – A toy company exec pits The
Monkees against his computer. Features the song “Last Train To
Clarksville” and an appearance by Rhino artist Stan Freberg. Originally
broadcast 9/26/66.

Mike’s episode: Fairy Tale – A hapless pauper (Peter) trys to win the hand
of a princess (Mike). Originally broadcast 1/8/68.

As an added bonus, Rhino has crafted a fun, 10 1/2″x 12″ jigsaw puzzle of
one of the front panels of the lunch box. The pop culture experts have
cleverly placed the pieces of the puzzle inside a mock mini cereal box –
titled “The Monkees: The Breakfast Of Chimpions” – with band stats on the
side of the box replacing the nutritional information.

The MONKEES METAL LUNCH BOX joins the rest of the Rhino Home Video’s
Monkees product, which includes 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee, Head, Hey,
Hey, We’re The Monkees, Justus, Heart & Soul, Volumes 1-14 of various show
episodes (two per VHS), and the massive 20 VHS Complete Monkees Video
Collection Box Set.

Quantities of this box set are EXTREMELY limited. Please submit your
request for a review copy to Rhino Media Relations.

Teen Idols past and present: Davy Jones, Bobby Sherman, and Peter Noone are
joining together for the Teen Idols tour, which starts in May. “Peter and I
have talked for years about doing something,” says Jones. “Bobby’s been
doing other stuff.” In fact, Jones jokes that Sherman, who has been
working as a paramedic, is on the tour “to revive us, since we’re old now.”
The trio will play fairs, casinos, and small arenas in secondary markets.
In related news, Jones says that the Monkees, who have had a number of
successful reunion tours over the last few years, “are over for now. I
can’t see anything happening until the year 2000. And it will never be just
three of us [Jones, Tork, and Dolenz]. It will be the four of us
[including Michael Nesmith] or nothing.”
