Rolling Stones Give “Bitter Sweet Symphony” Back to Verve Frontman

The Rolling Stones have given the royalties and rights from the song “Bitter Sweet Symphony” back to the band Verve.

After a battle that lasted more than two decades, it appears the fight has finally been resolved. Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft said, “It gives me great pleasure to announce as of last month Mick Jagger and Keith Richards agreed to give me their share of the song ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony.’ This remarkable and life-affirming turn of events was made possible by a kind and magnanimous gesture from Mick and Keith, who have also agreed that they are happy for the writing credit to exclude their names and all their royalties derived from the song they will now pass to me.”
