Judge Won’t Dismiss Cheap Trick Lawsuit

The Bun E. Carlos/Cheap Trick legal battle continues as a judge in Chicago has granted a motion for the drummer’s lawsuit to continue.  The lawsuit claims that the band owes Carlos compensation while he was still a full-time member of the band.

We’ll keep you posted.

I hope he finds all the “peace and love, peace and love” he’s looking for in the city of angles. Click the link below for pics.
