Today in rock history, in 2008, a London Court of Appeal reverses an ‘06 ruling that gave Procol Harum keyboardist Matthew Fisher a 40 percent stake in the royalties on the group's signature hit, the ‘67 single "A Whiter Shade Of Pale." Frontman Gary Brooker retains all of the song's commercial rights. The ruling is based on Fisher's "excessive and inexcusable delay (38 years) in his claim to assert joint title to a joint interest in the work." An update, though, according to his website www.matthewfisher.com, is that he has made a publishing agreement with the publisher of the song, so apparently he is getting some piece of the pie. It’s still a great tune, and one that I continue to work on, on and off, on my Hammond – maybe someday I’ll get it!. Thanks to http://www.rockintown.com/ for the info, and keep on rockin’!
