Mike Joyce Sues (3604 words)
Mike Joyce believed he was being paid 25 per cent of the group's earnings, when in fact they were giving him ten per cent, it was said.
Joyce, adamant he "never agreed" to this figure, has argued via his QC that the dominant duo treated him and Rourke as "mere session musicians, as replaceable as the parts of a lawnmower".
Joyce, 33, who is hoping for chart success with his new, two-man band Wah Now, said he brought the case because he was concerned about the future of his daughters Fay, 8, and Olivia, 3.
