Ghost: Four Former Nameless Ghouls Reveal Identities, Ex-Guitarist Speaks Out on Papa Emeritus Lawsuit
Wow! The dam has just burst on four former Ghost members’ lawsuit against frontman Tobias Forge (Papa Emeritus). All four members of the Swedish band have been identified, thanks to a Facebook post from former guitarist Simon Söderberg.
A few days ago, it was revealed that four former Nameless Ghouls had filed suit against Forge for unpaid compensation totaling $22,000. According to Söderberg, the four ghouls are:
Simon Söderberg (guitars, “Alpha,” member since 2010)
Mauro Rubino (keyboards, “Air,” member since 2011)
Henrik Palm (guitar, “Ether,” member since 2015)
Martin Hjertstedt (drums, “Earth,” member since 2014)
This makes a total of five Nameless Ghouls who have been identified. Former guitarist Martin Persner was the first to come out publicly, claiming he had left the band in July 2016 and now plans to focus on his band Magna Carta Cartel.
Söderberg’s Facebook statement on Ghost isn’t available to the public, but someone who is Facebook friends with the guitarist managed to capture the text via screenshot [via MetalSucks]:
The Ghost camp has yet to comment publicly on the litigation being brought upon Tobias Forge. Stay tuned as this story continues to develop.
