Ex-manager of popular Denver band The Fray fires back over lawsuit

DENVER (AP) – The man who managed The Fray’s early career says the band owes his company more than $750,000 in commission and expenses.

The band, whose hits include “How to Save a Life,” has a lawsuit pending in federal court in Denver against Gregg Latterman over copyrights to its songs. The band alleges Latterman failed to disclose that his management company obtained ownership to a portion of the band’s music when songwriters Joseph King and Isaac Slade signed a publishing agreement in 2005.

Latterman disputed that in documents filed Monday and filed counterclaims alleging breach of contract and fiduciary duty. He says The Fray tried to end his management contract early and pressured him to accept concessions including smaller commissions as the band’s popularity grew.
