Kudos to the Indiana House for passing the Truth In Music Act and sending it on to the Senate. It’s hard enough for acts from this time to get the money they’ve earned or might have been owed, given the shady dealings many owners, managers, and label heads practiced. Having others appropriate their name now is just adding to the insult.
Besides the merits of the bill, I have to think the legislature was awed by the charm of Sha Na Na’s Bowser, who’s been lobbying across the country for similar acts. Who knew Chuck Taylors and a low voice could provide an entry into the world of politics?
