Anthrax Sued By Ex-singer
Dan Nelson files $2.65m lawsuit against thrash legends
Blabbermouth reports that Nelson has said 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 $2.65-million suit also alleges that Benante last month told Blabbermouth that Nelson "was a bully." 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.
