Even though Bon Jovi will not give me the consent to publish the tapes and transcripts, should I anyway?

No, if you don't have the authority to publish than keep the information to yourself. Out of respect to the band I would not publish. Just do the right thing. Don't publish.

I do have the authority. I met with a copyright attorney in D.C. New York State has a one party consent law. I own the tapes.

What business is it to the public these phone conversations? Give them some privacy. What kind of person are you to publish conversations where they will not give you consent. If I was you, I wouldn't publish them.

Then why did you ask the question??? Do whatever you feel is the right thing to do.

Just wondering though...you might own the tapes and have the right under NY one party consent law...however...did you record illegally or with full knowledge of the other person(s) in the conversation??? If no consent was given to have the conversation recorded, it could make for a very interesting lawsuit.

Taryn sweetheart, no one cares.

this lady tried to sell tapes on the band around 2003-ish and to distribute on the internet. The band blocked her at that time

You admitted yourself that there was nothing salacious about these tapes or transcripts, so what do you gain from this? As I said, no one really cares, you're about 20 years too late

hope the weather's good in Virginia

That's what a one party consent law is. One party knowing the recordings were being recorded. I own the tapes.:)

I live in New York. The band didn't block me. Their attorney said they wouldn't give me their permission. Doesn't sound like a lawsuit to me. They researched the law too.

If you were me and had the tapes you would think twice. Yeah you would.

ooooooohhhh because you're thinking they will buy you out?

Got some news for you honey, there was a book released a year ago from their former road manager that they didn't bat an eye lid about, and it garnered ZERO interest. Your silly little recordings won't mean a thing

What we have here is blackmail. If you want to play hardball, you have to realise you're dealing with a fan base who are largely mature and can't really be shocked by anything, NOR do they care.

Sex swinging from the ceiling and Jon sleeping with fans? So what.

If you're not after money, publish the dam things here. Maybe you'll crawl back under your rock. If it's money your after, as I said before MANY have gone before you who have come out with supposed lurid claims about the band, and the band didn't bat an eyelid. That material was published and in the end didn't make any substantial money for the people who sold their souls to do it, so it was an exercise in futility

Whichever way you look at it, you are the loser here Taryn

yeah you might live in NY but I was referring to your hometown, or have your family disowned you?

Publish and be damned.

As tyui said, nobody showed much interest in the road manager's book - despite an attempt to whip up publicity with those ridiculous pictures.

I'm struggling to come up with a genuine reason for recording the conversations in the first place - unless the intention was to use the contents for extortion or blackmail at a later date. I mean, how many people record their phone calls?

Don't believe everything you read in tabloids. I knew I should have thought twice before asking opinions on a Bon Jovi fanatic website. Look, they are people like you and me, not GOD. None of it is real bad. The tapes are humorous and funny. Not trying to give them a bad name. These tapes are caasual and unique. In 1986 I was fifteen years old when MTV news reported Bon Jovi was recording an album in Vancouver Canada.(Slippery When Wet) I called a few recording studios tracking them down at Little Mountain Sound. The secretary gave me the number to their condo not realizing I was a fan. The first recording is where the secretary gives me their condo number. I have several conversations with the band. I did call collect a few times with them accepting. I ususally paid for the call. Back then you could hear the answering party. The tapes,(22 conversations/33 page transcript) now converted to disc is just how a young fan tracks down her idols and talks to them on the phone. Again I was 15 years old. The tabloids blew it out of porportion. As usual. I was looking in to an audiobook on how a young fan tracks down a band and talks with them on the phone. I lived in Virginia when the tabloids released the story. Born and raised in NY.

Read my last post. It will explain. Blackmail wasn't in my mind at 15 years old. I recorded the conversations because I figured my friends at school would not believe me. My music teacher let me borrow her tape recorder. She gave me a few minutes at the end of class to play my most recent recording. It was an innocent thing back then.

Taryn, I've read your explanation and I apologise for the comments in my post. I was wrong.

You see, if you said all of this in the first place, I would have had a better understanding of these conversations. I wouldn't publish these conversations and just for your information, I stand by my original post, I WOULDN"T publish these conversations, even though you think I would.

These are your personal conversations, don't you want to keep your memory to yourself and close friends? The press could ruin you memories for you.

If marketed right I believe that Bon jovi fans young and old could relate to this story.

No idea. You could release a short audio of one of the tapes online. Get people interested first.
Up to you mate.
