Soul singer James Brown filed a suit in New York's Supreme Court against banker David Pullman, who initiated "Bowie Bonds," saying Pullman had blown a deal.
Brown claimed in the suit filed Monday that Pullman had not put through a loan the singer needed for bonds. But Pullman claimed he was owed money, the New York Post reported.
Pullman earned a reputation as a creative financier when he advised singer David Bowie to issue bonds using future royalties as security.
Or, as the hardest working man in showbiz once said himself:
Sold me out, for chicken change (yes you did!!)
Told me that they, they had it all arranged
You had me down, and thats a fact
Now you punk, You gotta get ready
For the big payback!! (the big payback!!)
That's where I am, the big payback (the big payback!!)
