Earl van dyke questions
I saw the other day where Earl's window, Doris was suing EMI to get some payback on Earl's uncredited compositional contributions back at Motown. A precedent for this was set when then session organist Matt Fisher received his dues for creating the signature intro part on Whiter Shade of Pale. It seemed like this would lead to a rush of such claims, but I'm not aware of any others until now. Do you think she will get anywhere?
From what I heard, she wasn't that interested in Earl's legacy, so I'm wondering whether some legal eagle has spotted a main chance and roped her in.
While I'm at it - I ask this every so often, but there are a lot of new faces on the forum - does anyne know of a copy, or any information about, Earl's autobiographical book, Soul Brother?
She may get them to settle with her only if she can convince them that she has proof of Earl's creating specific music from scratch.
