Veteran producer Tom Werman is suing MÖTLEY CRÜE and their record company for back royalties.According to the papers filed in California Superior Court in Los Angeles, MÖTLEY CRÜE and Beyond Music have "deliberately, persistently, and repeatedly breached" Werman's agreement with the band by purposely withholding financial statements and monies owed him for his work on three MÖTLEY CRÜE albums: Shout At The Devil (1983), Theatre Of Pain (1985), and Girls, Girls, Girls (1987). In addition, Werman claims he's owed money for the music he produced that was used on the 1998 Greatest Hits collection, as well as any film- and TV-licensing deals involving his work. The producer is asking for damages in excess of $400,000, plus interest, attorney's fees, and court costs. During his 30-plus-year career, Werman has produced albums by CHEAP TRICK, TED NUGENT, MOLLY HATCHET, DOKKEN, KIX, KROKUS, L.A. GUNS, POISON, and TWISTED SISTER, among others. Werman also signed CHEAP TRICK, NUGENT, REO SPEEDWAGON, and BOSTON while he was an executive at Epic Records during the 1970s.
