Ex-Guitarist to Sue The Used

2017-11-17 by Thats twice this month youve slipped deadly nightshade into my tea and run off... | 21 Comments
The Used's ex guitarist Quinn Allman has filed a lawsuit for damages due to late royalty checks which have affected his financial credit. The late royalty checks were allegedly due to Quinn's refusal to sign an unfavorable termination agreement.

"He didn’t sign it, he said, because it didn’t include severance or allow him control of his royalty payments for his 13 years with the band."

The financial damages have allegedly stunted Allman's ability to move forward in his future musical endeavors. This lawsuit also comes two years after being kicked out of the band following a break Allman had asked to take.

"In 2015, more than a decade after he founded The Used, Allman said he was kicked out of the band, several months after he requested a personal break from touring when his father-in-law died and his mother was assaulted."

Judging by the self titled album, he's a wicked good guitarist

According to this article, he founded the band.

I think that's enough to throw him in prison. Give his royalty checks to people who bought their records.

That's fucked up. He founded the band with Bert. This is sad.

I'm curious what the real story is here. Allman apparently took a year off to cope with the death in his family. That's a long ass time. Hard to blame the band for replacing him, which they didn't until about 10 months later. I certainly wouldn't be allowed to take a year off to deal with a personal issue at my job.

He'll be just fine pretending he's not.

Wow people making jokes about his dad dying? FUck you. And, seriously friends for almost 20 years and kicked out of the band for taking time off after his father's death? Seems reasonable to me. They should have given him the time. He's earned it.
