He got paid, but he had to sue. And they tried to get away with not paying him. And I lost all respect for them when I heard about it.
Coincidentally, pretty much all the blues songs that you've heard covered by classic rock bands were written by Willie Dixon: Back Door Man (Doors), I can't quit you baby (Zep), The Seventh Son (Sly and the Family Stone), Spoonful (Cream), You Shook Me (Black Crowes), Hoochie Coochie Man (Allman Bros.), I just want to make love to you (everybody) and a thousand others.
