Steely Dan: Palmer wants more

David Palmer, who - up until 40 years ago was singer in Steely Dan - is suing for money he believes he is owed:

Palmer claims his work on the band's early tracks helped to give the act its signature sound, but insists he has been paid just over $8,000 (£5,000) in royalties from radio play.
Curiously, Palmer only sang lead on the two tracks he did because ABC records executives insisted; he also provided some of the high notes and backing vocals on other tracks. It's not clear how much he's after.
