Battlin’ Foghats

There’s trouble with Foghat. Original drummer Roger Earl has sought and won a temporary injunction against original bassist Tony Stevens regarding the name.

The latter has been listed with Pollstar as Foghat feat. Tony Stevens, but Earl apparently has exclusive rights to tour under the moniker.

“This case is far from over,” an attorney for Stevens’ agency, Artists International Management, stated. “Tony Stevens firmly believes that he has ownership rights in the Foghat name and an absolute right to use the name Foghat. He expects to be fully vindicated.”
