ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

no title

Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:

Weezer Planning Blue/Pinkerton Tour!

Filed under: Music MinuteWeezer

Any Weezer fans out there who suffer from depression will all be instantly cured with this news!

The band has announced their plans for a retro tour, where they will spend 2 nights in each city. The first night, they will play the entire Blue album, and the second night they will play Pinkerton in its entirety.

Here’s what frontman Rivers Cuomo had to say about it:

"We have this really exciting idea to do a tour where we spend two nights in each city, and the first night, we play the entire Blue album, and the second night, we play the entirety of Pinkerton. We're just running it by promoters right now to see if there's sufficient interest in the markets to do something like that, and if they're on board, it's gonna happen."

And more from Rivers:

"The fan response has been incredible so far for the idea. And, if they want to, they can contact their local promoter and tell them to make it happen."

We will be shocked if this doesn’t happen. Hardcore Weezer fans worship those two albums. We’ll be keeping an ear out for an official announcement of this tour, which we're sure will happen sooner than later.

Would U like to see a Blue/Pinkerton tour?

Hurley On Hurley!

Adorbs!

Jorge Garcia is thrilled that Weezer decided to use his friendly face as the cover of their new album Hurley in homage to his character on Lost!

"How awesome is that! It totally put a smile on my face, to say the least," says Jorge. "It ranks right up there with getting my own action figure."

So how did this deal go down? Well Jorge met lead singer Rivers Cuomo backstage at The George Lopez Show and asked if he could take a picture with him. Jorge adds:

“And then two months later I get an email from my manager saying, ‘Listen, Weezer contacted us and they want you to be on the cover of their new CD…I thought that was really cool.”

It is cool…and different!

Hurley comes out on September 15 — will U be checking it out?
