Gene Simmons Drops Devil Horn Patent Application
Gene Simmons has dropped his application to copyright the “horn’s up” or “devil horn” symbol associated with heavy metal music. Simmons claimed that the symbol originated with the 1974 “Hotter Than Hell” KISS tour. He was met with heavy criticism from the rock community, as the popular symbol is widely associated with deceased heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio, who can be seen making the hand gesture in seemingly every photograph ever taken of him. Critics also pointed out that the band Coven made the gesture in 1967, and John Lennon made the hand gesture on the cover of the 1966 Beatles’ Yellow Submarine/Eleanor Rigby single. Some say the move was just a bid for Simmons to get some free publicity. Simmons is currently on a solo tour playing sets of all KISS music in smaller venues, much to the delight of KISS fans.

Spinal Tap’s Derek Smalls To Release Solo Album
Comedian Harry Shearer is releasing a solo album as Spinal Tap bassist Harry Smalls. The album is tentatively called Smalls Change. Guests on the album include Steve Vai, Donald Fagen, and Peter Frampton. Shearer plans to tour the album as Derek Smalls. The project currently has no release date. Shearer is in the middle of a lawsuit against the Vivendi label, claiming they owe him for decades of unpaid royalties. The fictional band Spinal Tap was made famous by Shearer (along with Micheal McKean and Christopher Guest) by the 1984 mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, which satirizes the wild behavior of rock stars. The band in the movie has released three studio albums; This is Spinal Tap, Break Like the Wind, and Back From the Dead. The success of the movie has allowed them to go on tour as the fictional band.

Batman Star Adam West Passes From Leukemia At 88
Actor Adam West, best known for his portrayal of Batman in the 1966 television show of the same name, passed away this weekend from leukemia. West’s acting career got off the ground in the late 50’s when he signed a contract with Warner, and had roles in many of the hit shows of the day, including The Young Philadelphians, Lawman, 77 Sunset Strip, and Bonanza. His first big television role was as Detective Sgt. Steve Nelson on the 1961 series The Detectives. West skyrocketed to fame when he portrayed the DC Comics superhero Batman in 120 episodes of the show from 1966-1968. West’s straight-faced delivery of the material was exactly what the show needed, and both he and the show were a pop culture hit, so much so that it affected his career for decades, hindering his ability to get steady work as the public couldn’t see him as anyone but Batman. West saw a popularity resurgence through voiceover work on cartoons and became a regular as the voice of the mayor of Quahog on the Fox animated show Family Guy. West was 88 years old.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports.

Vegas Golden Knights Select Team
The NHL’s new expansion team, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, selected players for their team last night, drafting one player from each of the other existing 30 teams. The franchise was required to select 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies, with 20 of the 30 players selected having to already be under contract in 2017-2018 season. NHL teams could protect seven forwards, three defensemen, and one goalie. Teams could select another protection option, which would be protecting 8 skaters and 1 goalie. The second option allowed teams to protect an extra defenseman. The Golden Knights GM George McPhee, who built the Washington Capitals into the powerhouse they are now, made not only draft selections for the new team but was also able to make deals with teams not to select certain players. Any team making a deal with the team before the draft had to agree to not make other trades until after the draft. Taken in the draft was Penguins goalie Marc Andre Fleury, a highly accomplished player who half the league would love as a starter. Also taken was Predators forward James Neal, right winger with a 40-goal season, and Capital’s speedy rookie defenseman Nate Schmidt.

Lakers Trade Russell and Mozgov to Nets
In a move to clear cap space, the Los Angeles Lakers traded D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick in this year’s draft. Russell was the second overall pick in the 2015 draft and put up good numbers considering the team he was on. The real score for the Lakers is getting rid of the terrible Mozgov contract, a four-year deal for $64 million. This will allow the team to pursue a top free agent next year, specifically, LeBron James. Paul George has also said that he’d like to go to the Lakers as a free agent in 2018, though he may be traded prior to that. The Lakers get Brook Lopez, who averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists last year. He is 34.6 percent from the three-point line, which fits in with coach Luke Walton’s preferred offensive scheme. The team is projected to take ULCA point guard Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick in Thursday’s draft, another key piece for Luke Walton under the new Magic Johnson led team rebuild. In other NBA news, center Dwight Howard has been traded from the Atlanta Hawks to the Charlotte Hornets. Howard will be reunited with Charlotte coach Steve Clifford who coached Howard in his glory years in Orlando.

NFL Hall of Fame Group Meets With Pope Francis
While in Italy with a contingent from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday. In a release sent out by the Hall of Fame, the Pope said, “I am pleased to greet you, the members and directors of the American Pro Football Hall of Fame and welcome you to the Vatican.” He told the group, which also contained Franco Harris, Ronnie Lott and Curtis Martin, that “Teamwork, fair play and the pursuit of personal excellence are the values – in the religious sense, we can say virtues that have guided your commitment, on and off the field. These values meet the needs of our brothers and sisters and combat the exaggerated individualism, indifference, and injustice that hold us back from living as one human family.”
