Or millions of pretty pennies.
Former Born of Osiris touring guitarist Lee Evans — who has been out with the band twice in the last five years — claims the band owes him $3,000.
That’s a lot of claims.
Like any sane individual would, he jumped on Facebook to bitch about the money he’s owed.
“There’s a part of my BOO story I feel I must disclose, a cautionary tale for anyone who has business involvement with the band,” he writes.
“In 2012, when they had asked me to rejoin the group, they hadn’t played a show in 6 months, and were broke. I fronted money for band expenses, and was told I’d be paid back at the end of our tour with Unearth (November 2012),” he writes.
He then goes on to list what money he loaned the guys, and what for: “$376.71 for a ComEd bill; $339.63 for Rocktron power amps for Lee McKinney and myself; $817.59 for hotels; $746.83 Fractal repair for Lee McKinney’s Axe FX Ultra and a replacement MFC-101; $136.20 for UPS shipping my and Lee McKinney’s guitars to Ernie Ball for tuneups; $425.65 for assorted Guitar Center receipts.”
He said the money was “supposed to be repaid to me Nov. 31, but the band thought meager personal payouts were more important. Since then, this outstanding debt has spread to other areas of my life. Eight whole months have passed and I’m still waiting.”
And it looks that you’ll be waiting a while now. Nothing gets me to wanna pay up like a little whining and public shaming.
I understand dude’s pissed, but…come on.
Just pay up, BOO. Stop being dicks.
