You know the shame is that those early stars got ripped off all the time. They could do a song like this and the manager would rip them off putting his name on the record as the writer or co-writer and get a bunch of the money the ARTIST deserved. Norman Petty did this with Buddy Holly. There were lots of legendary artists who got pennies for songs that are pieces of American pop history, HUGE songs.
So sad they didn't live out their lives like they could have if not for the greedy thieves who ripped them off.

Right next to Ben E. King's obit in the paper this morning was the news that
B. B. King has entered hospice at his home in Las Vegas. Sad that it look's like we'll be losing another legend in the not to distant future. Long live the King.
