Offspring fans have noted the absence of bass player and founding member Greg Kriesel over the last while. What’s going on? Legal stuff. And it’s a bit concerning.
Kriesel has apparently brought a lawsuit against his bandmates, singer Dexter Holland and guitar Kevin “Noodles Wasserman. The documents allege that last October, they attempted to “seize the business, business opportunities, and assets” relating to the partnership that makes up the band.
He goes further, too, saying that Dexter and Noodles wanted him out of their partnership without any sort of fair compensation. They want him out as a general partner in the business that is The Offspring.
There’s been no comment from The Offspring yet. They’re set to tour with Sum 41 this fall, too.
