From TLC to the Rolling Stones: 10 Legends robbed by the music business

From TLC to the Rolling Stones: 10 Legends robbed by the music business

John Fogerty

As the lead singer and songwriter of Creedance Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty had penned some of the most well-known hits of the 60s. But by the early 80s, he wanted to pursue a solo career. To get out of his Creedence contract, Fogerty had to sign over the rights to their music to Fantasy Records. After he released his solo album, he was sued by Fantasy Records’ head Saul Zaentz because a single from the album sounded too much like an old Creedence single—essentially, he was accused of plagiarizing himself.
