Reminds me about how Jim Morrison was allegedly livid when the rest of the band didn't include him in the decision to let an agency use something along the lines of 'Come on Buick light my fire'.

I was dismayed to observe, over time, that the Beatles, Stones, Who, Kinks and everyone who came after them has a price when Madison Avenue calls dangling a deal. It's not enough to get rich off the records and concert tours, I guess. Where's the integrity to say, my music is art and I don't feel art should be used to sell automobiles? That's just my own aesthetic, I'm sure I'd feel differently if I wrote a hit and Madison Avenue dangled the bux in front of me.
