Danny Fields To Explain ‘Out’ Lawsuit

Legendary and litigious music producer Danny Fields will appear on Michelangelo Signorile’s Sirius radio show today at 4:30 to discuss his ridiculous lawsuit against Out magazine.

In case you don’t recall, Fields claims the gay glossy tarnished his name by implying he used his punk rock powers to woo young boys.

As we and Portfolio‘s Jeff Bercovici pointed out, however, Fields once bragged about doing just that. In Please Kill Me: Uncensored Oral History of Punk, Fields recalls fun-loving days at Max’s Kansas City:

You could have sex with all the bus boys… Anybody who walked into that room, you could fuck, because they all wanted to get into the back room. And you would say, “You’ll have to fuck me and I’ll let you sit at a good table.”

Will Fields offer a logical explanation or continue his $100 million quest? Find out today at 4:30.

      Queerty fails to acknowledge that the “please kill me” quote as apposed to the “OUT” blurb, loosely compared above, is within the context of an oral history of 70s underground music and culture in which Danny Fields is comprehensively portrayed in the context of his work. The book includes some insight into the sex and drug infused scene, textually relevant therefore is who was taking what drug and the who fucked who parts. The implication in the OUT quote and the comparison above is that Fields, perhaps the most influential character in the protopunk years, armed with the fuck lure of star access, subsidized an MO of seducing bus boys and groupies with signing the occasional band. That’s maybe OUT’s idea of cool, but, for starters, its inaccurate. I see no evil on Field’s part and suspect fun is being frankensteined into degradation here. Queers make the best gay bashers, they say. What a shame Queerty feels compelled to follow suit.
