Peter Frampton & The Knack Sue Universal Music Over Digital Payments
Posted: December 29, 2011
LOS ANGELES (Hypebot) -- Singer and guitarist Peter Frampton has sued Universal Music Group's A&M Records over digital download royalties.

Frampton's lawsuit comes on the heals of a similar action filed against Capitol Records by the heir of Bruce Gary, the drummer of The Knack. Since UMG is in the process of buying Capital parent EMI, both lawsuits could become there problem.

A similar successful suit by early backers of Eminem has inspired class actions filed in federal court by the Rick James estate, Rob Zombie and his band White Zombie, Whitesnake, Dave Mason and Chuck D of Public Enemy.
