"Which musicians restrict licensing their music to sampling producers?" Mon Apr-08-19 05:31 PM by obsidianchrysalis
I know Prince's songs are almost impossible to clear. Outside of It Ain't Hard to Tell, are there any other songs which had the clearance to use a MJ sample.
A lot of the musicans which made classic music from the 60's and 70's are almost impossible to get access to apparently. Have The Beatles ever been sampled. I know the Stones were sampled for Bittersweet Symphony but that deal was crazy. The Rolling Stones got all of the royalties for that song, didn't they? Marvin Gaye's catalog probably won't be touched again after Blurred Lines.
Any other groups or solo artists who are really reluctant to license their songs?
