Listen to Cheap Trick on iHeartRadio

Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson, and Robin Zander are responding to drummer Bun E. Carlos' lawsuit with a countersuit. 

The rockers have filed documents in a Delaware court seeking to have his dismissal from the band's corporations confirmed. 

In July Carlos sued his bandmates, claiming they owe him hundreds of thousands of dollars from an agreement stating that he's still a "full member" of the band and will still be compensated even if he doesn't perform with them. 

Carlos has also accused the others of engaging in business without his consent, which is necessary because he's a member of their corporations.
