Ramones drummer Marky Ramone (real name Marc Bell) wants $175,000 in back-royalties (and $1 million in punitive damages) from a distribution company he says is in violation of a contract he signed with them in 2005.
The former punk rocker says the contract promised him regular royalty payouts, but he hasn’t seen a penny since 2008. The distributors, he says, must be pocketing it.
Marky filed formal lawsuit documents with the New York Supreme Court early last week, reports TMZ.com. No word yet from the other camp.
