Who would have beef with The Roots?
The Roots are being sued by an ex-drummer for royalties and “false advertising.”
The drummer, Frank “Knuckles” Walker, was with the band from 2002 and was let go this May. Since then, TMZ reports that Walker accuses the band still promoting gigs using his image as if he was still in the band. Walker says the band did not have his permission to use his likeness since the split and now wants his cut for all the gigs using his photo.
So far The Roots have not responded to the lawsuit.
