LOS ANGELES -- Singer Marc Bolan's son is suing a music publisher for more than $2 million, alleging the company didn't renew its contract to use the British glam rocker's hits, including Bang a Gong (Get It On) and Jeepster.
Roland Seymour Feld filed the suit against Westminster Music Limited in Los Angeles court last week, alleging copyright violations.
Feld alleges the copyrights to his father's songs expired at the end of 1999, making him the sole owner and administrator of the songs, as the rocker's sole heir.
Bolan, whose real name was Mark Feld, was best known as frontman of glam rock group T. Rex. He died in a car accident in 1977.
