For Wayback Wednesday, here’s a great rock and roll success story: The same day Brian Johnson auditioned to replace Bon Scott as AC/DC’s lead singer, he recorded the jingle for a Hoover vacuum cleaner commercial. Apparently, he wasn’t that confident about AC/DC, because he thought, at 32, he was quote, “an old fart.” Plus, the Hoover gig paid around 700 bucks. But his AC/DC audition blew the band away, and he was announced as their new lead singer on April 1st, 1980. That same month, his Hoover commercial aired. And to this day, no vacuum cleaner has risen to that level of coolness again.

A California appeals court has overturned a 2017 jury verdict awarding Quincy Jones $9.4 million in Michael Jackson royalties. Jones had sued the estate claiming that he was owed royalties from songs hed produced that were used in the concert film This is It and two Cirque du Soleil shows. The appeals court ruled Tuesday that the jury misinterpreted a contract that it was the judge’s job to interpret. It took away some $6.9 million that jurors had said Jones was owed for his production of “Billie Jean,” “Thriller,” and more of Jackson’s biggest hits. The court also found that the jury wrongly award Jones additional licensing fees, got the royalty rate wrong, and incorrectly awarded Jones money for remixes of Jackson’s master recordings. The appeals court did allow Jones to keep $2.5 million for instances when they did use his masters.

At least one Major League Baseball team told its players to be ready to start an adjusted 2020 season July 1, although it was more for preparation purposes than knowing that date was set in stone. The Cleveland Indians estimated in a discussion with members of the organization that a second spring training would start June 10. One former player tweeted out…”Officials made it clear the dates were mere targets, fully expected to change. They simply want players to be prepared if the league meets all of the challenges necessary to play.” There is still plenty of uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, especially in the United States, and the idea that it could be on the table is far less definitive than saying that is surely the plan.
Former Packers great Brett Favre has been mentioned in what is being described as “Mississippi’s largest embezzlement scandal on record.” According to a report, Favre’s organization, Favre Enterprises, was paid $1.1 million as part of a $94 million state embezzlement scandal from the 2019 fiscal year. Money that was meant to help poor Mississippians instead was spent on cars and a college baseball tournament sponsorship, among other things. The state’s 104-page audit of the Mississippi Department of Human Services found Favre was paid in two installments — $500,000 in December 2017 and $600,000 in June 2018 — for appearing at three different events, appearing on a radio show and holding a keynote address. The audit determined the money he made from said engagements was “unreasonable.” Moreover, auditors found Favre “did not speak nor was he present for those events.” Favre received payments from the Mississippi Community Education Center, a nonprofit organization that received roughly $4 million as part of the state’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. Favre has yet to comment on the case or his relation to it. He faces no criminal charges.
Frank Gore will be back for a 16th NFL season after the 36-year-old running back reportedly signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets Tuesday. Gore, who turns 37 later this month, has a golden opportunity to break a record that was once believed to never have been surpassed. The shelf life of a running back is short to begin with, but Gore has defied the odds for years. Gore continues to run at a high level in his mid-30s and has an opportunity to rewrite the record books in his age-37 season. Marcus Allen is the only running back to see anything more than a few carries at age 37, the final season of a Hall of Fame career. Allen’s final year was in 1997 with the Chiefs, where he carried the ball 124 times for 505 yards and scored 11 rushing touchdowns.
