Imagine being sued by companies representing Mick Jagger, Lady Gaga, Sting and the late Johnny Cash.

     “I was just floored,” said Henry Robbins, owner of the Boot Scoot'n Saloon in West Newton.

He was a target of those stars and others, all because of a handful of songs played by local amateur musicians at an open mic night.

  “Truthfully they weren't very good and people were anxious for them to leave so they could play the jukebox again,” Robbins said.

Months later, Robbins got with a lawsuit by BMI -- a company that represents songwriters -- as well as companies representing Jagger, Gaga, Sting, Cash and other artists.
