Time now for an update on a story which I first posted on May 25th. I told you about Jesse Saunders not being paid a lot of money that he was due over London Records licensing “Love Can’t Turn Around” in 1986. Saunders held Pete Tong firmly responsible for the state of affairs.
I contacted Jesse Saunders to ask whether this dispute had since been resolved and whether he’d been paid. I also contacted Pete Tong to ask him if he wanted to make any comment at all on the story.
Pete Tong didn’t reply to my email, which is a crying shame. And as for Jesse Saunders, his response to me was a simple, one-word “no”.
