Beyond the Whiter Shade of Pale?

Seems a bit cheeky to sue for credit and royalties on an organ solo that was lovingly ripped off from Bach, no?

The organ solo is an integral part of the song, so the guy probably deserves a share of the royalties. The sad thing is that for many musicians, the past is all they've got.

I actually caught a Teenage Head show on the weekend because a friend was playing in the opening act. Apparently this is all Frankie Venom has -- a small stream of royalties and a show every month or so. He has no other job.

A life of music is not an easy one for all but the top acts.
