Thread: Chris Gaines was actually mentioned in 96/97 and whole different story

  1. #1

    Chris Gaines was actually mentioned in 96/97 and whole different story

    And it was a whole different storyline.

    Not sure if this has been posted before.

    But I remember reading an interview with Kenny Rogers, I think it was 96/97. (either one
    of those years because I was living in Oz at the time)

    Kenny Rogers said he is aware that Garth has created a fictional rock charterer called Chris
    Gaines.

    I remember reading Kenny said it's going to be for a movie and the movie revolves around,

    Chris Gaines being murdered backstage at the Grammy's, and the authorities call it Suicide,
    but a reporter uncovers the truth and why it was covered up.

    Anyone here remember this?????

    Around 96/97, two years before Garth Brooks
    announced the Chris Gaines project, I remembered
    reading an interview with Kenny Rogers.

    I read the interview online, which seemed really
    cool to me, because I read it on the web and not
    just on usenet, which was the internet for me way
    back then.

    The Interview with Kenny seemed to be a normal
    interview, until he diverted to Garth Brooks.

    Kenny Rogers said Garth has taken the country world
    by storm, but he's about to do the same with the Rock
    world. Kenny said Garth Brooks has created a
    fictional Rock personae called Chris Gaines, and
    there is going to be a movie.

    When asked what the movie was about, Kenny Rogers
    said something along the lines of.. Chris Gaines is an
    Australian Rock God, who gets killed backstage at the
    Grammy's, the Police detectives get it wrong, but
    one reporter uncovers the truth that shocks the music
    world.

    Again the internet was in it's early days, and the story
    wasn't picked up, in 1999 When Garth Brooks announced
    the Chris Gaines project, a pre soundtrack to a movie,
    the script had changed.

    Of course the movie didn't get made, but if it did, the script
    was going to revolve around, Chris Gaines being invovled
    in a horrible car accident, but he comes back to make an
    earth shattering album that changes the world.

    Here's what I want to know, and apart from the Kenny Roger's
    interview from around 1996/1997, I have read nothing about
    this.

    How and why did the original script change???

    A murder back stage at the Grammy's, transformed into a car
    accident and an epic album that changes the world.

    One screenplay seems to be a thriller with a twist, one seems
    to be a feel good movie.

    I wish someone could shed some light, my #AskGarth question
    on this hasn't been answered, and no one seems to remember
    the Kenny Rogers interview.

    For me if the original script or the original draft ever appeared,
    that would be worth a ton, not even Rick from Pawn Stars, could
    say "Here's the thing" and low ball it.

    So what is the story, what is a writer's practise to take a 180 with
    a story and change the main idea??

    Why is this not part of the story when the media
    mentions Chris Gaines?

    Again I had read the interview around 96/97 two years before
    Chris Gaines was ever mentioned by anyone else.

    Can someone help me out here??

    Hashtag?
    Sammie?
    Kenny?
    Chris?
    Garth???

    Interesting. I don’t recall the Kenny Rogers comments. Did you ever do a search in the Forums here to see if that was ever discussed at the time? This board was pretty much on top of things back then, and if that happened, I’m pretty sure it would have been discussed here. I’m not disputing what you read...I’m just wondering if it was one of those spoof articles that crop up.

    It was so long ago, Im from New Zealand, and I was living in Australia at the time, ( I lived there for a year), it may of been an Australian website from what I can remembered,
    it seemed to be a legitimate website, that I had gone to before.

    Ive done a search of PG forums but cant find anything.

    This was in 1996 or 1997, Garth had not mentioned Chris Gaines at all then, so Im guessing it cant of been a news site making it up.

    Perhaps I dreamt it years later, and im confused or something.

    But my memory is telling me it wasa 96/97, cuz I was in aussie at the time
