I listened to an Interview with Ian Dury in which he admitted he stole the melody for his song Sex and Drugs and Rock & Roll from a bass solo on an old jazz record. He later confessed to the bassist what he'd done, but the other musician wasn't upset: he'd stolen his solo from an old Cajun folk tune.
