Spike Lee’s Dad’s Late-Night Jam Sessions Cause a Stir

  • Spike Lee’s jazz legend father Bill Lee has come under fire from his Brooklyn neighbors who claim the musician is disturbing the peace with late night jam sessions.

    A group of local residents allege the 84-year-old bassist is making their lives miserable by inviting “a constant parade of musicians” into his home for live sessions which often last until the wee hours of the morning.

    A neighbor tells the New York Post, “I can’t live like this. It’s all the time. If (the music) ended at 10 (p.m.), I could almost deal with it. But you never know when it’s going to start.

    “I’ve even offered to help pay for soundproofing. They won’t agree to anything. They’ll say things like, ‘Your kids are getting a great musical education. What’s the problem?’”

    Lee, who has lived at the Fort Greene property for more than 40 years, insists his late night jam sessions have never been an issue until now. He tells the publication, “I don’t think of music as a problem. Music is a big part of this house. Always has been.”

    1. I am curious to find out what blog system you’re using?
      I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free.

      Do you have any suggestions?

    2. I found that hard to believe, especially after watching the Kim Kardashian reality TV marathon.
      Kim initially thought that a tummy tuck would do the trick for achieving
      her weight loss goals. ” I didn’t make a penny from the wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to Dream Foundation”.

    3. The Needs of the MANY outweigh the needs of the few. When the human being does not get proper sleep-time, the human being will go crazy, therefore the NEEDS of the MANY outweigh the needs of the few musicians. And there are Constitutional Issues involved as well; the Right to Privacy is not to be invaded…..musicians music is INVADING MANY private homes/apartments….
