Cheap Trick Record Charity Song Without Original Drummer
Cheap Trick have recorded a new track, "A Very Special Christmas - 25 Years," to benefit the Special Olympics. However, one member of the band, drummer Bun E. Carlos, says he did not get the memo.
Carlos posted a memo on his website, notifying fans that he was slighted:
"Bun E. Carlos, Cheap Trick's founding member and longtime drummer joins all Cheap Trick fans in supporting the Special Olympics, but wants all his fans to know that he was not invited to participate in the track attributed to Cheap Trick scheduled to be on the Special Olympics Christmas album."
Speaking with Billboard, Carlos added that he thought it was a great cause, reiterating that the band "simply can't make a recording without me and call it Cheap Trick."
