Counting Crows

Ex-Managers Squawk ...

We Want Our Money, Forever!

EXCLUSIVE

Counting Crows LawsuitCounting Crows just got sued for cutting off payment to their former managers who've been pulling salaries for doing nothing for the past 13 years -- and what's really weird is ... the band agreed to that deal. 

According to court docs filed last week ... Martin Kirkup & Steven Jensen of Direct Management Group repped the band from 1992 until 2001 when the Crows decided to drop them. Only problem -- DMG says it has an ironclad contract guaranteeing they continue to get paid a percentage of the band's gross earnings ... FOREVER.

The Crows got tired of that deal and stopped paying DMG in November 2013, and according to the suit ... the band is demanding a new agreement to lower payments to their ex-managers.

'Round here ... that doesn't fly with DMG. The firm is suing for the last 8 months of back pay, and wants the court to back 'em up on the whole we get paid forever thing.

The Accounting Crows haven't returned our call for comment.

My understanding of the law you cannot have a lifetime contract. The contract must stipulate a time. Otherwise it's Usery

8 months of back pay from the County Fair Crows is what? $20 bucks. Cue the old song "nothing from nothing leaves nothing ..."
