David Graham and Alexander Graham-Sult say that Nicholas Clainos, the
former president of the senior Graham's promotion company and the
executor of his estate, cheated them out of the value of the works by
selling them without telling the sons, according to the SF Chronicle.
Graham was a key figure in Bay Area music from the mid-1960s until he died
in a helicopter accident in 1991. He booked the Grateful Dead, Jefferson
Airplane, and other bands at S.F. venues like the Fillmore, helped build
Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, and brought world-famous
artists to perform in the Bay Area.
Graham's sons didn't give a dollar value of the sold items. Court
documents said they found records of the documents' sale in boxes that
were meant to be destroyed.
