Machine Head are seeking to end the legal mudslinging that has surrounded the band since former bassist Adam Duce brought a lawsuit against them. The suit made claims of copyright infringement, breach of partnership and mismanagement of funds, among other things.
On Feb. 11, 2013, Machine Head fired bassist Adam Duce after over 20 years of playing music together. Very little has been heard from Duce since, but news just broke that the former Machine Head bassist is suing the band, all three current members and the group's manager for alleged trademark infringement, breach of partnership agreement, defamation + more.
The news came as a bit of a shock last week when Machine Head announced they were parting ways with longtime bassist Adam Duce. A very general statement on the matter revealed the separation, stating that the split was amicable and that the band wished Duce the best in his current and future endeavors. Now, a new letter from frontman Robb Flynn reveals that Duce was, in fact, fired from the band.
