I recently managed to secure an interview with Bart Steele, who's known around fan circles as "the guy suing Bon Jovi for $400 billion". Bart took great pains to point out that his copyright infringement case is a bit more complicated than that. Basically he believes his baseball anthem "Man I Really Love This Team" was used as a temp track for the MLB/TBS commercial featuring Bon Jovi's "I Love This Town". But click on the links below to read it in his own words.
I ended up splitting what Bart told me into four articles:
Bart Steele talks about temp tracking
Why Steele claimed $400 billion
Steele denies suing for publicity
Steele reflects on the case (some final questions in Q&A format)
So that's Bart Steele's story. You can make up your own mind.
But if anyone from the Bon Jovi camp wishes to comment, they can always contact me. Hey, I can dream, can't I? ;)
