Yesterday at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios took the secret Paul McCartney concert, to which were invited only “their”. How was the concert?
The beginning of the Pro guests: the Studio was spotted Orlando bloom, johnny Depp, Kylie Minogue and rapper Stormzy. The daughter of a musician, designer Stella McCartney also gave some tip on the guest list with the help of instagram putting a video in which she, her father and friend Liv Tyler are in the Studio. By the way, Kylie Minogue was invited not as a guest and as the host of the concert. Paul himself personally greeted each of the guests, sending kisses and waving hands.
Concert for the McCartney gave not just. It it timed to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles ‘ Abbey Road. The album was recorded in the same Studio, which hosted the event. In his Instagram posted a video Floor as it passes over pedestrian crossing Abbey Road, just like on the cover of the legendary album.
Recall that for Paul McCartney, the Beatles became a matter of life. Despite the fact that the band broke up many years ago, the musician still continues to earn on the songs, which were recorded at the perfect time.
But as it turned out, Paul receives royalties far for all the songs that he created. McCartney filed a lawsuit against the record company Sony/ATV, with the aim to regain copyrights to some band’s songs, written in collaboration with another ex-member of the “fab four” John Lennon. In the wrong hands the rights to the song were because of the same Sex: he gave them to various record companies.
The lawsuit says the songs recorded between 1962 and 1972-th. For example, Across the Universe and I Want to Hold Your Hand.
It is worth saying that the rights to certain songs McCartney wanted to return not two days ago. For several years, the musician contacted the company to Sony/ATV and was informed that he claims that rightfully should belong to him, and he intends to get it back.
This is possible under U.S. law, which States that after a certain period after the last sale of rights, authorship can be returned to the source.
The first under this legislation was the famous song Love Me Do, the rights to which the musician will present in October 2018.
