From Holy Moly:
' Which band's recent number one single had its lyrics written entirely by the drummer but they had to agree to a 'co-write' with the singer even though said vocalist added nothing, not even a comma, to the words?
The singer, believing himself to be the only 'star' in the band, refused to admit that their biggest (and by far their best) single could have come into being without his firm hand on the controls.
Management at first reasonably backed the drummer, pointing out that he had written the bloody thing and that the song was sure to be a huge hit for the band. The singer's mature response was to refuse to record his vocals until his demands were met, and in addition he would take his ball home whilst holding his breath.
Because of this wrangle, it was the last song on the album to be recorded and delayed the release date. Vocals were only performed when the drummer was forced to give in to the singer's demands that it be credited to both of them.
The label agreed in the end as they appreciated how successful the song (particularly if it had vocals) would be, especially in America.'
I've met Johnny Borrell, he really is a twat.
