NY judge halts auction of The Band member's stuff
KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) — Musician Garth Hudson has temporarily blocked a New York landlord's plans to sell some possessions dating back to his days with The Band to recoup unpaid storage costs.
The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/YEAYC4 ) the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer won a restraining order Friday to halt an online auction scheduled for April 6.
Landlord Mike Piazza told the newspaper he was selling Hudson's property because the musician couldn't pay at least $60,000 owed for seven years of storage in a Kingston loft.
Hudson's lawyer says Piazza has illegally taken some items and is claiming more rent than Hudson owes.
Hudson's lawsuit claims he wasn't properly notified of Piazza's plans to sell his property, including an alto sax and cassette recordings The Band's shows.
