Procol Harum keyboardist awarded royalties

Brit keyboardist Matthew Fisher has won 40% share of the royalties for “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” the 1960s hit he recorded with Procol Harum.

A London justice agreed with Fisher’s claim that he deserved more money than he has previously received, but not the nearly $2 million that Fisher had requested.
