Machine Head Vs Former Member
Duce was replaced by Jared MacEachern, but claims he still has an interest in the band's partnership and corporation. He also claims his dismissal was a means to secure more money for his bandmates.
In the lawsuit, he states that despite the band earning $2m supporting Metallica followed by $3m on the road in Europe, and despite being entitled to an equal share of income, he was left so penniless that he had to work a day job when Machine Head weren't touring.
Duce alleges that manager Joseph Huston and Flynn refused to provide satisfactory answers to his questions about where the money was going. He further claims he was fired just before the band signed a deal with Nuclear Blast so the remaining members could pay themselves more. more on this story
