(Classic Rock) Estranged Cheap Trick drummer Bun E Carlos has sued the rest of the band for hundreds of thousands of dollars, saying they have no right to keep using the band name without him.
He's joined in the action by former manager David Frey, who says he's still owed money for covering the band's costs after the 2011 stage collapse which destroyed their equipment.
Carlos claims his ex-collagues failed to stick to an agreement that saw him removed from the lineup while remaining a full member of the band for business purposes.
He and Frey have filed legal papers at Cook County Court, in which they say: "Plaintiffs are forced to bring this action against the three Defendants due to defendants' outright refusal to account for, or pay, hundreds of thousands of dollars which are owed to each of the Plaintiffs, or to otherwise comply with their obligations to Plaintiffs."
