Don Henley and Glenn Frey of The Eagles have launched legal action against a man they say screened bootleg live footage of the band at a ticketed event back in October without permission.

According to New York Daily News, Henley and Frey filed a lawsuit in New York last week, claiming that the man, named Frank Shelley, is using the film to “bolster his reputation as a purported music industry ‘insider’ with close connections and ties to many classic rock greats”. They add that they have previously sent cease-and-desist letters, with which Shelley has refused to comply.

Neither side has commented on the case publicly as yet.
