Cheap Trick have settled their legal differences with drummer Bun E Carlos, says frontman Robin Zander.
Carlos (real name Brad Carlson) launched a lawsuit against his colleagues in 2013, claiming he'd been forced out of the band's company and they'd withheld his share of profits.
He'd stopped playing live with them in 2010 but argued he was "a full member of Cheap Trick in all respects." He said he'd been shocked when they recorded a track without him in 2012.
But Zander recently commented: "We've settled our differences. Bun E's a member of the band, but he's not touring and he's not recording. We've had our differences but we're all settled up now. The decisions that Cheap Trick makes, Bun E is part of."
Randy Bachman and Neil Young have streamed their collaborative track "Little Girl Lost" from Bachman's forthcoming album Heavy Blues. The track can be heard below:
The CD, to be released April 13, was produced by Kevin Shirley and features bassist Anna Ruddick and drummer Dale Anne Brendan. Other guest spots include Joe Bonamassa, Peter Frampton and the late Jeff Healey.
