When Canadian rockers Nickleback parted ways with their drummer Ryan Vikedal it was not an amicable split. Now more fuel has been added to the fire.
As reported in the past Vikedal claims he was fired from the group. Now frontman Chad Kroger and his production company Arm Your Dillo Publishing Inc want to prevent Vikedal from claiming any royalties from past Nickelback albums.
Vikedal participated in several hit albums for the band including The State, Silver Side Up and The Long Road. But now Kroger wants himself and his publishing company to own the sole rights to those three Nickelback albums. Not only does he want the former drummer to stop receiving royalties but he wants him to repay any royalties already received.
After his departure in January Vikedal was replaced with Three Doors Down drummer Daniel Adiar.
