Skip Campbell Represents Clients Who Actually Attended A Rob Thomas Concert

I love Joan Fleischman's column in the Miami Herald. She always finds some interesting nugget out there, usually involving the law or some local yokle. I didn't understand it when they moved and bumped her column to make room for Ana whatever-her-name-is, although I have to admit Ana turned out better than I thought.

Today Joan discovers that Rob Thomas, the punky lead singer for Matchbox Twenty, is actually a dangerous drumstick-thrower:

Lisa Gelbard, wife of Broward neurosurgeon Dr. Steven Gelbard, is suing rock singer Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty fame.

Lisa, 43, says she was hurt at a December '05 concert at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Thomas was on tour -- without MB 20 -- to promote his first solo album. A member of Thomas' band threw a drumstick into the audience, and it hit ''about her face,'' says Lisa's complaint, filed by attorney Walter ''Skip'' Campbell Jr. She suffered a cervical herniated disk, Campbell says.

Steve, 51, who attended the concert with Lisa, is party to the suit, filed against Thomas' company, Bidnis. He suffered ''the loss of his wife's services, support, consortium and the care and comfort of her society.'' They have been married since '02.

My first question is why the hail a couple their age is at this concert in the first place? Rob Thomas? Oy. And they got seats close enough to the stage to get hit by a drumstick?

Please, people of a certain age, do me a favor and stick to the Styx and REO Speedwagon moldy oldie shows, where there's no danger of anything dramatic or even particularly interesting happening on stage.


  1. does anyone know how it is possible to get a
    "cervical herniated disk" from getting hit "about the face" by a thin wooden stick?

  2. Pearls-for-the-PrincessJuly 2, 2008 at 9:59 AM

    6:03, good question. Is there a dr. out there?

    What about the people who attend The Rolling Stones concerts? All ages attend with the oldy moldy ones smoking weed.

    Might as well say it, how's the princess?

  3. waiting-for-the-princess-to-postJuly 2, 2008 at 10:09 AM

    This case is just as bad as the woman who sued for "emotional trauma" when Janet Jackson had a wardrobe malfunction at the Superbowl and wanted close to a million dollars from CBS.

    SFL is the princess taking in the sights of our city while you're slaving away at the office?

  4. newbie-who-likes-the-princessJuly 2, 2008 at 10:35 AM

    I like Rob Thomas. Can't say the same for REO Speedwagon. Who are the guys who started the pool about the princess and her ex? I found something about her ex, he lives in Miami.

    Great article SFL.

    Congats newbie on your superior research skills. Oye Vay! Tell us something we don't know.

  6. rob-thomas-ranters-for-the-princessJuly 2, 2008 at 12:32 PM

    Newbie you must be related to someone in the firm you intern for.

    Hey numb nuts if any of you happen to get access on her ex, what exactly are you going to do with the information?

  7. bolero-lovers-for-the-princessJuly 2, 2008 at 12:44 PM

    9:31, Asshole!

    9:32, lock it away in the vault. Some of us in the pool want to know why they broke up.

  8. rob-thomas-ranters-for-the-princess2July 2, 2008 at 12:58 PM

    6:03, if there's a dr. out there wanting to make some money I'm sure he'll be able to make it possible.

    9:31, bite me asshole!

    SFL it's salt time,

    Man, it's a hot one
    Like seven inches from the midday sun
    Well, I hear you whisper
    And the words melt everyone
    But you stay so cool
    My Muñequita
    My Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
    You're my reason for reason
    The step in my groove
    And if you said.
    This life ain't good enough
    I would give my world to lift you up
    I could change my life to better suit your mood
    Cause you're so smooth.

    And it's just like the ocean
    Under the moon
    Well, that's the same the emotion
    That I get from you
    You got the kind of loving
    That could be so smooth
    Give me your heart
    Make it real
    Or else forget about it

    I'll tell you one thing
    Well, if you would leave
    It'd be a crying shame
    In every breath and every word
    I hear your name calling me out
    Out from the barrio
    You hear my rhythm on your radio
    And you feel the turning of
    The world so soft and slow
    It's turning you' round and 'round
    And if you said

    Well, go forget about it....

    Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it

    Go Skippy!

    7:09, you're working SFL while the princess is in town?

    9:44, infidelity on his part?

    -Attorney Rejected By The Princess, proud member since 2008.

  10. 9:32, newbie must be related to the firms' head honcho. Who else would hire a clueless intern?

    10:22, if infidelity was the cause then why didn't the princess just write about it?

  11. fake-george-webber-1July 2, 2008 at 2:42 PM

    6:03, this is America and people sue for the stupidest things i.e. the Janet Jackson "nipplegate" scandal. What can be said about the lawyers who take on these cases?

    SFL I am offended you think old people can't enjoy music by musicians who are younger than they are! My children are always introducing me to great new bands.

    11:10, agreed! If he did cheat on her why keep the details hidden?

  12. 9:31 -- you crazy anti-semite:

    Are you referring to Skip Campbell, who is about as Jewish as your burning cross?

  13. Just for clarity, the only point in 12:18 was that Skip Campbell is not Jewish.

    Skip is a dynamite lawyer with an excellent reputation -- so I say there is nothing wrong with this case...

  14. SFL -- Can you please remove the anti-semitic comment and all the posts that relate to it?

    This is no place for hate...

  15. ridiculous. skip campbell should be embarassed. IT WAS A DRUM STICK! NOT A BASEBALL BAT!

  16. fake-george-webber2July 2, 2008 at 3:26 PM

    12:21, agreed and he's also a great guy!

    11:42, interesting point. Maybe the princess feels embarrassed she was cheated on?........though don't know why she would feel that way.

  17. 12:25, imagine if fans began to sue for loss of hearing at a concert!

    12:26, there must be more to their breakup than infidelity. Damn it I want to know! SFL, can you offer us something?

  18. Skip is a great guy, but who knows about this case?

    Skip has been around the block and generally takes cases that are going to be profitable, so maybe the injuries are legimately quite bad.

    Pretty sure that Big Skip is not a Jew, by the way there, 9:31.

    When you are bashing an entire group of people, you should probably specify who you are re

  19. lusting for the princessJuly 2, 2008 at 4:04 PM

    12:25, agree, maybe her injuries are bad.

    12:32, c'mon SFL, quit being so silent and throw us a bone.

  20. corrupt-lawyer-for-the-princessJuly 2, 2008 at 4:21 PM

    Whether Skip is Jewish or not is not the issue. The issue is why the lame brain at 9:31 left such a hatred remark!

    1:04, how long must we wait for your answer SFL?

  21. santana-lovers-for-the-princessJuly 2, 2008 at 4:37 PM

    SFL is protective of his muñequita.
    BTW, what a sweet, little name for the princess.

    9:58, salt meet more salt,

    Since the moment I spotted you
    Like walking 'round with little wings on my shoes
    My stomach's filled with the butterflies
    And it's alright
    Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
    I got the feelin' like I'm never gonna come down
    If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied

    Every time I try to talk to you
    I get tongue-tied
    Turns out, everything I say to you
    Comes out wrong and never comes out right

    So I'll say why don't you and I get together an' take on the world, be together forever
    Heads we will and tails we'll try again
    So I say why don't you and I hold each other, fly to the moon
    and straight on to heaven
    Cause without you they're never gonna let me in

    When's this fever gonna break ?
    I think I've handled more than any man can take
    I'm like a LOVE-SICK puppy chasing you around
    And it's alright
    Bouncin' round from cloud to cloud
    I got the feeling like I'm never gonna come down
    If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied

  22. Sorry folks I was getting ready for the big 4th of July weekend. I removed that idiotic post, even though I don't generally like to do that -- stupidity speaks for itself.

    11:42, I agree with you, there's nothing wrong with enjoying new sounds. But front stage at an event for teenagers is a bit much for my taste.

  23. defense-lawyer-for-the-princessJuly 3, 2008 at 10:34 AM

    Thanks for removing the hate remarks SFL.

  24. waiting-for-the-princess-to-post2July 3, 2008 at 12:17 PM

    I agree with your statement SFL but there is stupidity and then there is obscene and racist. Holy 'hail' if the individual who left the remark is a lawyer.

    9:58,1:37, whenever SFL fails to comment on a song that is posted it's usually because the song/lyrics have a hit a nerve or we've brought on the 'heartache' to his lovesick heart.
    Say hello to the princess, will ya.

  25. Pretty rockin' blog SFL. But this I gotta ask, do the lawyers actually read what you post? I'm guessing no?
    I enjoy reading the princess' posts
    but I'm also guessing some lawyers don't read her posts either.

  26. BTW, might as well say it, please do say "hello to the pretty princess"

  27. SFL -- Can you please remove the anti-semitic comment and all the posts that relate to it? This is no place for hate...
