The Fray’s Ex-Manager Fired Back Over Lawsuit
This will be a long way to peace between rock band The Fray and their ex-manager.
The band, who’s best known with their hit How to Save a Life, filed a lawsuit against their former manager, Gregg Latterman over copyrights to the band’s songs.
Tha band alleged Latterman failed to disclose that his management company obtained ownership to a portion of the band’s music when songwriters Joseph King and Isaac Slade signed a publishing agreement in 2005. The lawsuit is now pending in federal court in Denver.
But then on Monday, Latterman also filed a lawsuit against the band whom he managed in their early career. He disputed the allegations and filed counterclaims alleging breach of contract and fiduciary duty.
He said The Fray tried to end his management contract early and pressured him to accept concessions including smaller commissions as the band’s popularity grew. Latterman said the band owes his company more than $750,000 in commission and expenses.
No comments from The Fray’s camp yet, let’s just wait and see for the case’s development.
