    Well he's suing for not getting money he deserves, not due to the same bullshit reasons he's been sued for.

    Overall I'm sure he pursued this with good reasons. He's a funny guy with a great sense of humor and he can still pump out funny music after like what, thirty years or something?

    EDIT: Either way, appropriately funny.

    Sueing for something just for the sake of sueing certainly wouldn't be like him, but I say he is entitled to what his contract/deal states. I'm all for it

    Sounds like he wants the rest of his paycheck he was promised and if they are gonna use the artists as a reason for the lawsuits then they should be compensated for their use.

    Sounds fair to me. If true the label is ripping him off and he's right to sue. Since when is it wrong to sue a record label?
