Keith Jarrett vs. Steely Dan

Submitted by Christopher

When Steely Dan‘s “Gaucho” was released on 1980 Keith Jarrett sued Donald Fagen and Walter Becker for using the main theme of  “Long As You Know You’re Living Yours” (1974) without  giving him credit.   Fagen and Becker both claimed that Living Yours inspired the track and they were fans. Jarrett has since been added to the credits. Have a listen:

Steely Dan - "Gaucho" (1980)

Keith Jarrett - "Long As You Know You're Living Yours" (1974)
