Oasis Tony McCarroll

Sacked drummer gets $550,000

3 Mar, 1999

McCarroll sues Oasis for $550,000 in unpaid royalties. Neither Gallagher brother appeared in court for this. Their lawyer, Raz Mireskandari says, the lump sum was paid to buy out any future royalties claims by McCarroll. McCarroll now has no connection to the group and cannot claim any more earnings for music he was involved in.

The original claim for unpaid royalties was for $18m, a fifth of the band’s earnings since McCarroll was replaced by Alan White.
