Third Eye Blind Sued I Want Something Else … My ‘Semi-Charmed’ Kinda Dough!!!
So, this is how it’s gonna be — Kevin Cadogan is so done waiting for Third Eye Blind to cough up cash, the ex-lead guitarist is suing the band and its frontman, Stephan Jenkins.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Kevin says he’s never been paid his cut from the band’s re-released debut album — and, as a founding member, he says he’s owed at least 25 percent of the profits.
Kevin says he co-wrote and co-created the songs “Kiss Goodnight,” “Scattered,” “Heroin” and the band’s “Semi-Charmed Life.” All 4 are featured on the re-released debut, so he’s expecting to get paid for them.
Further, Kev — who left the band in 2000 — says Stephan cut him off from royalties on a slew of the band’s other hits.
He’s suing for a court order establishing him as a copyright holder on all the disputed tracks … as well as an accounting on how much money the songs have generated. His ultimate goal? Getting his fair share of the pie.
