The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft, who wrote the 1997 hit, was denied royalties for two decades because it sampled a Jagger-Richards composition

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

I didnt read that in the article...I take it as all royalties now go to Ashcroft...as in
from now on.
..The song is truly an amazing one...Ashcroft had better start pitching it to films and get it back in the spotlight to make up for lost time/money...

Klein was the main culprit in all this I think. However the Stones could have been more proactive in this. I mean they gave Katie Lang credit for ASMB and I really never understood why.
