I am a 23 year old musician. I don’t know if you’d say I was aspiring, but I’m having fun. I am also a big fan of your slightly warped mind. It has greatly influenced my own slightly warped mind since elementary school when my 5th grade teacher Mr. Hibbard would read us your stories. I am in the process of writing a song based on Lizard Music and was wondering: A) is this legal, and B) if so, would you mind? If you would like to screen my lyrics/music first, they can be internetidly reached at
Chris, as far as I know, it is not illegal to write songs. However, I am no lawyer. There are many local laws on the books. It is illegal to converse with chickens, or other poultry, in North Carolina, and to do so on Sundays in Delaware, for example. It may not be legal to write songs in your community. Before putting pen to paper, I would seek counsel, or visit a law library. You are prudent to raise these questions before undertaking the arduous work of composition.
