Cheap Trick have filed a countersuit against their drummer Bun E. Carlos. This comes more than a month after Carlos filed a suit against the band claiming they owe him thousands of dollars.

In court papers filed on August 31 in Delaware Chancery Court, the three members of the band — Richard Nielsen, Thomas Peterson and Robin Zander — stated that after Carlos (born Brad Carlson) stopped touring with the band in 2010 he was no longer a member of the group and was “subject to removal as a corporate director without a unanimous shareholder vote,” according to Bloomberg

“Since March 2010, Carlson has not performed with the band as a touring musician,” the group said in the suit. “The plaintiffs were (and are) free to decide that the defendant is no longer a member of the band.”

The remaining members of Cheap Trick claim in their suit that since they decided he is no longer a member of the band, they do not owe him any money.
