    I would have guessed pants-pisser, but I'll buy megalomaniac too. But do take into account that back then, Garth was at least as big a figure as anyone associated with the films mentioned

    He does sound shameless.

    Twister would have been perfect. He could have been Ropin' the Wind and been a hero.

    He could have entered a phone booth, come out as Chris Gaines and saved the day

    Garth Brooks, allegedly.

    But we are only hearing one side of a lawsuit.

    I hate to #Humblebrag but I've had past dealings with Garth, Lisa, Marty Singer and Allison Hart and I know that the latter two don't fuck around (I've got the scars to prove it, as well as some good memories of them both)...and the idea that Marty Singer is suing Garth is pretty bizarre -- I would have expected Garth and Allison and Marty to have been on the same side!

    I've also mentioned here before that in my interactions with Garth I found him to be one of the most fascinating people I've ever met. He struck me as the kind of creative genius who just had trouble coping with the everyday world the rest of us live in -- much like Michael Jackson did as well, minus the sexual hangups.

    At any rate, this could be a doozy of a lawsuit and would be a blast to cover.

    Didn't he get an economics degree from Oklahoma State?

    Not the first time they've tangled in court over money:

    But I have close to zero understanding of legalese.

    I should sue Garth Brooks for denying me the inevitable, bizarre cult classic "The Lamb" would have become by now.

    Garth wanted to be in Saving Private Ryan and Twister? Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
