“If you have a security guard who winds up punching someone in the face or kills someone, who is responsible? “Is it the artist, the bodyguard, the promoter? I think promoters will require stars to indemnify their own staff,” said McNaught. “Even if AEG was not held responsible, I still think this case will make attorneys find ways to tighten contracts.” An attorney for Lloyds of London involved in the Michael Jackson case declined comment for this story. The price of premiums also may go up, according to one concert producer who did not want his name used. Currently, promoters pay 3 percent to 5 percent of the value of the policy, meaning that AEG paid between $530,000 and $875,000 for the $17.5 million policy it took out with Lloyds of London for Jackson’s “This is It” tour. AEG, which had initially sought to collect on the $17.5 million policy after Jackson’s death canceled the tour, dropped a claim against Lloyds amid revelations in leaked emails that show AEG executives were concerned about his stability ahead of his planned London comeback tour. Insurers routinely send doctors to do medical exams — and occasionally hire investigators for background checks– before placing multi-million dollar policies for the stars. After the Jackson trial, the reams of information they need will skyrocket, said Adam Steck, CEO of SPI Entertainment, who recently brokered a deal for an 18-show run by rocker Meatloaf at Planet Hollywood in Vegas, starting September 26. “We’re in a high risk business, said Steck. “The case will require artists to disclose medical conditions and the producer will need to insure and vet them properly, meaning more red tape.

In recent years, due to increased security, many airfields are moving away from these kinds of events. “The Moccasin Flying Club has been hit hard by the recent recession,” said Craig Tyndall. “Fuels costs are high, and the airport has added badge fees and ramp charges that tend to scare away most private pilots. There hasnt been a Fly-In at Lovell Field since the 1990s. We are working on making general aviation attractive to a new generation of pilots by planning Saturday events like this, where participants can meet local pilots, get close to an airplane, and ask questions. “People are still interested in learning to fly for business and pleasure.

Well, youave got somebody who eats their own hair, and it builds up in their intestines aa Just Google it. No, donat. If Urungus is to be believed a and he isnat a this is among the poignant subjects Gwar considered turning to on its 13th studio album, Battle Maximus. Instead, the album is a tribute of sorts to former Gwar guitarist Flattus Maximus, whose human host, Cory Smoot, died in 2011. The new disc a aour greatest album since the last onea a updates Gwaras elaborate mythology with a narrative documenting the quest for a new band member. aAll the Maximus brothers from across the galaxy came together here on Earth to battle each other for the right to follow on in the great clawed footprints of the immortal Flattus, because they all happen to play guitar. Pure coincidence.a The last Maximus standing was Pustulus. aHe was louder, more violent a and also, his zits. Heas covered in acne from head to toe, and that really endeared him to me, since I had a skin problem in my youth. I didnat have enough zits.a The bandas previous tours have featured the dismemberment of Osama bin Laden, Barack Obama, Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton. This time, Urungus says: aI think weare slaughtering God. We realized we hadnat killed God, and heas probably the biggest celebrity.a So bring the kids. aWeare a real family kind of band, as long as your family is a bunch of perverts.a Before Marilyn Manson sent the pious lunging for their holy water, Gwar traumatized authorities and club owners with its Grand Guignol performances. The band was temporarily barred from playing in North Carolina in the early 1990s on obscenity grounds (police took possession of Urungusas Cuttlefish codpiece). Still, Urungus said: aI think everybody in this hemisphere pretty much knows whatas up with Gwar at this point.a Then there is the annual Gwar-B-Q, whose fourth edition was held last summer in Richmond, Va.
