Also responsible for taking all of The Verve's royalties for Bittersweet Symphony, simply for the use of a Stones sample, which they had already paid for.

What a guy.

He's going to be remembered for being a ruthless businessman, and not much else.

Only 77? Average life expectancy right now is about 78. So he's really only 1 under par.
