Black Keys manager denies pressuring adversary
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - A Nashville lawyer who opposes legislation that would crack down on ticket scalping in Tennessee alleges that a manager of The Black Keys tried to persuade him to change his position in exchange for tickets to a performance by the band.
Attorney John Ray Clemmons said in a letter to a Senate committee chairman that he was disturbed by repeated efforts by Fielding Logan, who also manages country star Eric Church, to give him tickets.
WTVF-TV reports Logan in a written response to Johnson acknowledged he offered the tickets but said he only meant to demonstrate how easily paperless tickets can be transferred.
Clemmons' letter was forwarded to the Nashville prosecutor's office. A spokeswoman there said it hadn't yet been received.
Logan didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Wednesday.
