Huey Lewis Sued Over "Ghostbusters" Song

Huey Lewis & The News frontman Huey Lewis first sued singer-songwriter Ray Parker Jr. in 1984 alleging Parker and others plagiarized the band's "I Want A New Drug" song when the Ghostbusters film theme was composed. Now, Parker is suing Lewis, claiming he violated a confidentiality clause in a legal agreement they reached in 1995 over the "Ghostbusters" song, the Associated Press reports.

In his lawsuit filed last Thursday (March 22), Parker alleges Lewis violated that agreement during an interview that aired on the VH1 series "Behind The Music."
