LOS ANGELES (AP) — John Fogerty is suing two of his former Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates claiming they haven’t paid him in years for performing the band’s hits with their new group.

Fogerty’s lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles is against Stuart Cook and Douglas Clifford, two founding Creedence members who now perform — without Fogerty — under the name Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

Fogerty previously sued the men over using the Creedence Clearwater name, but settled with them in 2001 for a share of their touring and merchandise income.

Forgerty’s lawsuit claims he hasn’t been paid his share since December 2011. His lawsuit does not say how much he is seeking.

Both Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revisted are on tour.

A message sent through the band’s website seeking comment was not immediately returned.
