In 1997, The Rolling Stones added a credit to k.d. Lang on their song ‘Anybody Seen My Baby’ after Keith’s daughter Angela told her father that he may have inadvertently copied his song from k.d.Lange’s 90’s hit “Constant Craving”. The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards wrote, “My daughter Angela and her friend were at Redlands and I was playing the record and they start singing this totally different song over it. They were hearing k.d. Lang’s ‘Constant Craving.’ It was Angela and her friend that copped it.”
Music producer David Bendeth says, “Everybody thought the idea was crazy. Lawyers got involved and it got to The Rolling Stones. Keith Richards said, ” OK! My daughter has been home all summer, she had to do summer school work, something like this, and she kept playing Constant Craving by k.d. Lang, and I think somehow that chord and melody got into my head”
Keith Richards said “I inadvertently took your song and made it “Anybody Seen My Baby’.
