Who Ya Gonna Call ...

1/9/2010 2:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 55-year-old resurfaced at some event in Switzerland recently, looking relieved.

Ray Parker Jr

In 1985, singer Huey Lewis sued Parker for allegedly copying the melody from "I Want a New Drug" for the "Ghostbusters" theme. They settled out of court.

Parker played himself in episodes of "Gimme a Break" and "21 Jump Street."

The only thing he ever did was steal the music from "I want a New Drug" from Huey Lewis. He used the music to write Ghost Busters. No talent thief.....

Ha-ha, the poor birdie fell into a trap, but this check is the check for everybody. Poor birdie got used to trust people and looking into eyes to define who of that costs. Than higher you fly up, that painfully you fall down... Somebody regrets the birdie, but others laugh at it - no happy end. Let it be... Let the Free Bird sing...the poor birdie will better keep silent...

Honestly, I am glad he took "I want a new drugs" rhythm, the song sucked anyways, Ghostbusters was hell a better. He changed it up a bit, people who think otherwise are retarded. Ray is totally the awesomness.

Ray Parker was one of the most successful music session guitarist in the world, during the 70s and 80s. He had his own studio at home, and would take the masters home to his studio to do part. Before Ghostbusters, he had several hits on the dance club scene.
