Kim Monroe’s Music Minute May 5th

Apparently as we were all scratching our heads over the fact that restaurant chain Applebee’s was using a classic AC/DC song in their ads last year, Sony Music was preparing a lawsuit.  According to the lawsuit, Applebee’s is being sued for $300K for using “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution” and one other copyrighted song illegally.  However, the restaurant claims they did pay for the usage through a third party.

Recently, former Van Halen front man David Lee Roth made a rather large donation to his former bandmate. bassist Michael Anthony.  Anthony recently announced that he is participating in a charity walk to raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles following the tragic death of his infant grandson.  Roth ponied up $10-grand in support.

Twin Peaks fans, it’s almost here!  It’s been a little more than 25 years, but the revival of the show airs on Showtime on May 21st as a two-part premier.  A new teaser trailer has just been released as well featuring some of the veteran cast members and how they look today.
