This came after Jagger said he could relate to the Taylor Swift music copyright drama through his similar experience with the Rolling Stones’ business-minded manager Allen Klein.

The Stones had to learn to manage themselves financially after experiencing serious business problems with copyright and ownership rights.

The world-famous band still doesn’t own the rights to their pre-1971 catalog – including their first international number one album, 1965’s Satisfaction.

Jagger said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, “The industry was so young that it didn’t have the support and the amount of people available to be able to advise you the way they do now.”

“But you know, it’s still happening.” I mean, look what happened to Taylor Swift! “I don’t really know the details, but she obviously wasn’t happy.”

The Rolling Stones skyrocketed to fame in the 1960s and hired music business accountant Allen Klein to stabilize their finances.

Klein had worked with the Beatles, Sam Cooke, Phil Spector, the Kinks and other artists of the 60s and 70s.

He negotiated a new contract for the Rolling Stones with the Decca label, securing them a million pound advance payment for their next album.

After negotiating an end to their partnership, Klein managed to keep the Rolling Stones’ entire music catalog for the years he managed them – from 1965 to 1970.

In return, the Stones received millions of dollars in royalties for their own music – but not as much as if they had had sole ownership of their music.

Jagger told Rolling Stone in 1975: “Starting in 1965, he owed Keith and me songwriting royalties.

“I just wanted to get rid of him. He only lives off of us and what we did five, ten years ago, you know? It’s pretty pathetic.’

Today, artists continue to struggle with the same industry battles over who owns what.

Jagger said he could relate his experience in the industry to Taylor Swift, who famously fought with Scooter Braun over the rights to her music.

The brawl began when Braun bought Big Machine Records, the label Taylor was signed to, for over $300 million and with his purchase he received her entire song catalog.

On the same day the deal was announced, Taylor claimed she had been asking to get her work back for years, but was only given the opportunity to re-sign with Big Machine Records and “win back” each album by producing a different album “.

Big Machine Records founder Scott Borchetta, 61, claimed the singer previously had a chance to buy her older work, but that fell through when she secured a deal with Universal Music Group. Swift’s lawyers denied knowing about the $300 million sale and said she was not given an opportunity to repossess her music.

Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s manager Scooter Braun faced backlash after posting a now-deleted Instagram post in which he bragged about “buying Taylor Swift.”
