So a letter to the editor recently came down the pipeline from someone named Lisa Marie Parsons, who calls herself the "Executive Personal Assistant to Alan Parsons" — no mention of any familial relation. After mentioning

Jason Mraz's recent complaint

that a Jonas Brothers song sounds an awful lot like one of his own numbers, Ms. Parsons goes on to state the following:

Alan Parsons has been nominated 11 times by the Grammy Committee throughout his 35 year career. He also engineered Pink Floyd, Dark Side of The Moon, as well as the Hollies, Oh Ho Ho it's Magic by Pilot, Al Stewart and countless other artists. He even became boss of Abbey Road Studios in London. Our fans are reaching out to us by the hundreds telling us how Need you Now by Lady Antebellum is one of those "lazy rip offs" of Eye in The Sky by The Alan Parsons Project.
