The Rolling Stones finally give back 'Bittersweet Symphony' songwriting credits to Richard Ashcroft



-The iconic 90s Britpop song has seen The Verve's Richard Ashcroft receive no royalties because it sampled an orchestral cover of the Rolling Stones’ “The Last Time”
-Since 1997, 100% of the royalties have gone to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
-The Stones "voluntarily" handed over the rights
-Richard Ashcroft paid them a compliment: “I never had a personal beef with the Stones. They’ve always been the greatest rock & roll band in the world.”
