Jeff Beck And Johnny Depp Are Debating Allegations That They Appropriated Poem Lyrics
According to representatives for Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck, the duo will investigate claims that they plagiarized lyrics from a poem for their joint album "18. "
According to Rolling Stone, Bruce Jackson's 1974 toast-themed book Get Your Ass In The Water And Swim Like Me included the poem Hobo.
Slim Wilson, a character in the story, also sang the poem's lyrics, which begin, "Ladies of culture and beauty so refined, is there one of you who would grant me wine?" I know I look ragged, but I don't smell. God bless the lady who will buy me a drink. Heavy-hipted Hattie turned to Nadine with a laugh and said, "What that funky motherfucker really needs, child, is a bath.”
Depp and Beck’s collaboration "Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade" has allegedly pulled a number of lines from the poem, including: “I’m raggedy, I know, but I have no stink,” “God bless the lady that’ll buy me a drink,” and “What that funky motherfucker really needs, child, is a bath.”
Jackson claims that he hasn’t been credited by Depp or Beck.
A spokesperson for Depp and Beck said: “We are reviewing the inquiry relating to the song Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade on the 18th album by Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp." If appropriate, additional copyright credits will be added to all forms of the album. "
