It still was ridiculous how EMI gaffed over that one.

Yeah, a huge mistake considering how hard firms and various interests were coming down on sampling by that time.

It is a good gesture by Mick and Keith now, no doubt. They don't need to be known as "writing" that song, and maybe that played in their heads a bit. Back then, they were probably happy to try and scare other people off sampling Stones material and letting their lawyers play hard ball; but to keep going with the same situation now just looks like bloody-minded, money-hungry opportunism to most people. They have enough great songs, and many would argue better ones, that they really wrote and can get the money from, rather than having to squeeze royalties from 'BSS'.

I certainly wouldn't want my name on that rubbish.

(Though that goes for most post-1972 Stones songs, too.)
