Roy Smith from Reno, NV has filed a lawsuit against Sting. He says he was the inspiration for his songs Roxanne and Message In A Bottle.
Smith says the two had a little chat back in the day, which inspired Sting to go and write those songs. Um, those songs are ancient! The guy might have had a little more credibility if he went with Brand New Day, but no he had to go for the goldmine songs!
He probably won't get any money, because no one can prove a conversation from thirty years ago!
