Quote :
According to the New York Post, former ANTHRAX singer Dan Nelson filed a $2.65 million suit yesterday over the fallout from his 2009 oust from the band.

Dan Nelson says drummer Charlie Benante, bassist Frank Bello and guitarist Scott Ian falsely stated in “numerous interviews” that he had “abruptly resigned” after getting sick, forcing a cancelation of a tour.

The Long Island native says his ex-bandmates’ “intentional defamation” has caused him a loss of income and damaged his reputation.

The Manhattan federal court filing further charges that Nelson co-wrote the tunes on the band’s latest album, Worship Music, but hasn’t gotten his fair share of the profits.

I like Anthrax but I do feel like they really do screw over their singers when something better comes along.

Why not? Go for it.

I thought the same thing. Matthew & Gunnar? Really?

Ah well, who didn't see this coming? Band fires singer, singer sues band. It's all part of the game. Of course, he doesn't sue until the band puts out the album and starts touring. Wait till the money starts rolling in before you stake your claim, right?

I'd like to sue Anthrax for not making a decent album after Spreading the Disease.

I'd also like to murder them for their contributions to groove metal.

We still don't know why he was fired do we? The album was done and ready for release. It doesn't make sense. Why fire the lead singer so abruptly unless he did something really, really awful.

Until the while story comes out, I'm having a hard time believing they fired Dan because he was "too sick to perform". There's more to this that noone is talking about.

I dont know - i doubt he would sue knowing he was the one at fault... some people do it and hope they dont get caught but i doubt he wants any dirty laundry out in the public view...

If he didn't want his dirty laundry aired in public, bringing about a lawsuit isn't the way to go. Maybe he's just hoping for a payout? "I'll sue for $2.65 mil, but if we settle for $500,000. I'll go away and never bother you again."

I dunno. It's just hard to know who to root for here when we don't know all the facts.

If they don't want him around, for whatever reason, he doesn't deserve a cent.

unless of course, he can prove he co-wrote some of the songs on Worship Music, which he is alleging.

Saw this in the paper today. Looks like Anthrax has settled w/Nelson...


http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/anthrax-band-members-thrash-deal-singer-dan-nelson-article-1.1102296


Anthrax band members thrash out deal with former singer Dan Nelson
Nelson had sued metal band for $2.65 million after nasty split in 2009


METAL THRASH band Anthrax was in Manhattan Federal Court on Monday for settlement talks with its ousted lead singer.

After more than two hours of closed-door negotiations with a judge, drummer Charlie Benante, bass man Frank Bello and guitarist Scott Ian walked out of court smiling after striking a deal with Dan Nelson.

Nelson had sued the band for $2.65 million after his acrimonious departure in 2009.

Details of the settlement were not made public.

Before reaching the deal, Anthrax attorney Brian Caplan informed the judge that Nelson had been offered a “fairly small dollar amount” and co-authorship of 11 Anthrax songs that the band recorded for the album “Worship Music"

Well, how many copies of the album did Anthrax actually sell? $2.65M seems ridiculous based on what I know of the business. But I guess it was just to show he was for real. If he co-wrote songs, he deserves credit. In the end, all is well.
