Springsteen wants name off royalty lawsuit against NYC bar
NEW YORK – Bruce Springsteen wants his name off a lawsuit demanding licensing fees from a Manhattan bar where a band played his songs.
A statement on Springsteen’s Web site Thursday said he didn’t know about the lawsuit that was filed Wednesday in federal court and wouldn’t have agreed to be a plaintiff if he had been asked.
It says Springsteen’s representatives demanded the immediate removal of his name Thursday morning after learning about the lawsuit filed by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. ASCAP didn’t immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Thursday night.
