(No offense to his fans out there)
I just came across stuff that truly had me going wtf??
What do you think about "Web Sheriff" I believe it's called and Van Morrison using Web Sheriff to threaten and scare his fans into shutting down their fan websites? According to lawyers that know copyright laws and the web Web Sheriff had no legal right or ability to force websites to close and the websites weren't in violation of copyright laws. To illustrate the point a lawyer said Rolling Stone, which did a story on this, could not use a picture of Van Morrison for the article if Morrison was right. The fans complied and sites were shut down. In any case, what isn't in dispute is Van Morrison wants no unauthorized pictures of him on the internet and bullied his own fans into shutting down tribute sites.
Also -dont mean to get gossipy- but, saw a doc about former drummer for Bob Dylan Winston Watson who comes across as a real cool guy. He tells a story about how Van Morrison told Dylan that his drummer is no good and should be replaced --right in front of him and loud enough for him to hear it. Then awhile latter after no longer touring with Dylan Watson visited Dylan back stage and there was Van Morrison yet again who, according to Watson, made some rude comment directed apparently at him. Weird.
