2008 – Velvet Revolver Pay Up Over Song Theft. According to Rolling Stone, Velvet Revolver has reportedly settled a song theft case brought U.K. musician Tony Newton. Newton claimed that Velvet Revolver lifted the riff and melody for “Dirty Little Thing” from his band Voodoo Six’s track “Cyber Baby.”

“I genuinely couldn’t believe it, because it wasn’t as if it was close… it was basically the same riff,” says Newton in the Rolling Stone report. “Anyway, I called my publishers to check whether they knew anything — which, of course, they didn’t — and then basically left it with them.”
