Gary Brooker, lead singer in the 1960's British pop group "Procol Harum," dies of cancer at the age of 76. This is such a great old music video! WOW!!
Meanwhile, strife in the band over this song.
Back in 2006, the organist, who never got credit for the song....sued for a share of the song's copyright and past sales. Matthew Fisher won. His organ chords open the anthemic song and carry the psychedelic tune through its final swells --
Lord David Neuberger of Abbotsbury said the organist had played a key role in the success of the song.
No doubt the ruling was worth a lot of money to him.
The song had always been credited to Gary Brooker and lyricist Keith Reid, and sold over 10 million copies.
