Black Flag Cofounder Sues Former Bandmates

(Classic Rock) Black Flag cofounder Greg Ginn has launched legal action against his ex-bandmates, saying they have no right to tour under the name Flag. And the lawsuit also targets former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins.

Keith Morris, Dez Cadena, Chuck Dukowski and Bill Stevenson announced a Flag tour in January, just three days after guitarist Ginn the only musician to appear in all lineups of the band confirmed his own Black Flag plans.

Ginn, owner of SST Records, argues it's confusing for two outfits with a similar name and logo to be in action at the same time, and he wants Flag to change their name.

He's named all the members of that band in his lawsuit and he's also listed former frontman Henry Rollins, even though he currently has nothing to do with either lineup. More details.
