Liberty DeVitto Settles Lawsuit Against Billy Joel

Drummer Liberty DeVitto has settled a lawsuit filed last May against his former boss Billy Joel. In the lawsuit, DeVitto — who played with the piano man from 1975 to 2005 — claimed that Joel breached agreements to pay royalties based on sales of 11 albums that sold a total of 100 million units. The amount of the settlement has not been disclosed to the press.
