Violent Femmes Take It To Court
Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie filed suit against lead singer Gordon Gano in a U.S. District Court in New York August 15th. His allegation? That Gano allowed "Blister In The Sun" to appear in a Wendy's commercial, thus blistering the group's reputation. To add insult to injury, Ritchie claims he is the group's true founder and that he has never been acknowledged as such (well, it takes two to tango, and at least that many to found a band, right?).
No word on how much the suit seeks in damages.
