Oldies Groups Headed To D.C. For Hearing

Drifters, Box Tops, Ministry, Billy Joel, DMX, Marilyn Manson, Eminem, Shawn Smith, Sting, Chuck Berry, Rammstein...

Members of several 1950s and '60s groups, including the Platters,

Drifters and Box Tops, are expected to attend a congressional

hearing Wednesday (May 5) in support of the proposed Truth in Rock Act,

according to John Edgell, press secretary to Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.

The act would help artists fight impostors who use their names. The bill,

introduced last month, is being reviewed by the House Judiciary Committee's

Intellectual Property Subcommittee.
