White Stripes' Producer Wants Credit for their Sound

Published: 2006-04-18
After busting onto the scene in 2001 with their album White Blood Cells that spawned the hit single "Fell in Love With A Girl" and its Lego block video, the White Stripes' music has penetrated the airwaves.

Now a former producer for the band, Jim Diamond, wants to get in on a piece of the White Stripes' royalties. A producer for the two albums prior to White Blood Cells says he wants a share of their royalties because according to the Associated Press he says he "played a pivotal role in creating the band's signature sound".

Diamond was a co-producer for the band's self titled debut and listed as a sound mixer for their sophomore album De Stijl. He had no part in creating either album after that.

The band denies that Diamond's claims have any merit. They'll duke it out in court on June 12.
