Accountants to sue funk legend George Clinton
US firm Wlodinguer, Erk & Chanzis to sue songwriter for allegedly not paying the firm enough
Funk legend George Clinton is to be sued by his former accountants
Wlodinguer, Erk & Chanzis.
Clinton, who became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997,
received a cash boost of $1.2m (£831,000) following a review of his royalties by
Universal Records and EMI.
Wlodinguer, Erk & Chanzis filed papers at Manhattan Federal Court on 3
June 2010 claiming it was only paid $25,000 for its work on the deal – rather
than the 25% they were allegedly promised,
Clinton, who filed for bankruptcy in 1984, has been labelled one of the most
prominent innovators of funk music alongside James Brown.
