A veteran producer for Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Ozzy Osbourne and other rockers claims Sony Music Entertainment underpaid royalties for his work on 21 Journey songs and owes him more than $1 million.

Sony was supposed to pay Baker royalties under a producer agreement, according to his 18-page federal lawsuit. But Baker says an audit of Sony’s books revealed that the music company had been underreporting his royalties by more than $475,000 for the period audited.

He says Sony is refusing to release other documents that might uncover additional underreporting since the audit, and he estimates that his royalties may have been underreported by more than $500,000 before the audit using Sony’s incorrect rates.
