The Roots Sued By Former Drummer

The Roots are facing a lawsuit from ex-member Frank 'Knuckles' Walker, who was removed from the band in May after 15 years. “They simply kicked him out of The Roots and presumed he would forget about almost two decades of hard work, dedication, and effort he put into [the group],” reads a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday by former percussionist Frank “Knuckles” Walker. The drummer alleges that Thompson and Trotter, along with manager Shawn Gee, paid him “unfair compensation” and used his image to promote their performances after giving him the ax back in May.
