Overview

Elvis, Ozzy, George Michael, Metallica, George Harrison, The Smiths... They've all been involved in legal action over the past fifty years or so.

Pop Goes To Court recalls some of the most entertaining and bizarre court cases ever to take rock'n'rollers into a courtroom. Bono went all litigious over a disappearing hat, one Beatle filed suit against the other three, and forty years after it was a big hit, Procol Harum's A Whiter Shade Of Pale was suddenly the focus of a bitter legal wrangling over who actually wrote it.

Author Brian Southall digs deep into some of the most memorable music disputes ever to merit the sober deliberations of the law, and in doing so, reveals much about our changing views on fame and the value of publicity.
