Bizarre legal disputes of music acts

Music mega star daily itinerary:

9:00-10:00: Breakfast, accompanied by assortment of class A drugs

10:00-12:00: Write chart topping album

12:00-14:00: Rewrite rider list (include that new type of sweet you found in that Tokyo gift shop. But not the green ones, they tasted like feet)

14:00- late: Sort out ridiculous legal case

Okay, so we can't confirm that every member of the hit parade has a schedule like the above - but, if the following list of bizarre legal disputes is anything to go by, court proceedings are standard practice for any artist known for wielding a large ego.

Click the gallery below to take a look at some of the most notable musical court battles ever fought.
