White Stripes sued by co-producer

DETROIT (AP) A producer who worked on the first two White Stripes albums claims he deserves a share of the royalties, saying he played a pivotal role in creating the band's signature sound.

Jim Diamond, who is listed as co-producer on the band's self-titled first album, released in 1999, has sued the White Stripes in U.S. District Court. He is listed as sound mixer on De Stijl, released in 2000.

"It's not just about fun and games," Diamond said. "I understand this is a business."

A June 12 trial date was set.

"It is a meritless case which will be defended with vigor," said Bert Deixler, the Los-Angeles based attorney representing the White Stripes, the rock duo of singer-guitarist Jack White and drummer Meg White.

The White Stripes deny that Diamond helped create the band's style. The band said in court documents that they paid him $35 an hour for time at his Ghetto Recorders studio, which he started in 1996.

Well, if Jim agreed to $35 an hour....
If you give a lottery ticket to a friend and he wins the jackpot, he isn't obligated to share it with you. Although, it would be the decent thing to do ofcourse.

"And on the night of Dec. 6th, 1996, I overheard Mr. Diamond tell Mr. White that the idea of sounding like Houses of The Holy-era Led Zeppelin was a "good idea". Furthermore, he suggested the band wear matching outfits, and that Mr. White should try to recruit his ex-wife as a drummer. He further went on to state that...."

Yeah Jacko White should share his money with all the people talking shit about him. That's what Jim D. would do. I'm sure.

Wait a minute. Wouldn't Bob Seger cut and paste the lyrics to some obscure song like 'Hot Blooded' by Foriegner to make his point?

Jim should have to pay back every shit-job production he's done that's negatively impacted his "client's" sale. Then he has a case for the one in a million mainstream hit.
