Someone was sooooo about to make a ton of cash off of Kid Rock….and then it didn't happen. Here's the story.
A Louisiana musician Troy Landry was suing because he claimed Kid's "Somebody's Gotta Feel This" was a rip off of his own music. Maybe he should have named it "Somebody's Gotta 'Steal' This".
U.S. District Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon wrote in her ruling this week, "the works are not so strikingly or substantially similar as to preclude independent creation."
Kid's lawyer Michael Novak noted that anytime you have a hit record, you can pretty much plan on this kind of lawsuit.
