Ex-Pumpkins Sue Virgin Over Corgan's Deal
July 25, 2008 at 1:37 PM (PT)
VIRGIN RECORDS is being sued by former SMASHING PUMPKINS guitarist JAMES IHA and bassist D'ARCY WRETZKY-BROWN, who assert that the label made a deal with band leader BILLY CORGAN without consulting them. The two are seeking damages because the 2005 deal with CORGAN involved royalties from downloads.
NME reports that CORGAN has already reportedly received at least one royalty payment from the deal. The suit can be seen at TMZ.COM.
