Harry Styles accused of copying guitar riff on Ever Since New York
Harry Styles has been accused of ripping off the guitar riff from a '70s Badfinger single for his new track Ever Since New York. The former One Direction star made his live solo debut on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live over the weekend (15-16Apr17), when he performed his debut single Sign of the Times and previously unheard album track Ever Since New York. Following the premiere of the song, a number of users took to Twitter to point out similarities between the song's guitar riff and the riff from 1971 Badfinger track Baby Blue, with some even accusing Harry of copying it entirely. One wrote, “I wonder if Harry Styles has ever heard Badfinger’s Baby Blue, and if he will hear from their lawyer," another posted, “So did Harry Styles get permission from Badfinger to use the Baby Blue riff for that song?” A third tweeted, “F**k Harry Styles. Ripoff artist. That riff is NOTE FOR NOTE lifted from Baby Blue by Badfinger. Unbelievable I’m far too upset about Harry Styles stealing the Baby Blue riff. This feels so personal. Is he going to rip off some 10cc or T. REX next?” “This is the last thing Harry needed. His solo launch hasn’t quite gone to plan and this is another distraction," an industry insider told The Sun newspaper. “He takes real pride in his new material and to be accused of nicking a riff will really hurt.” The British singer is expected to give a live solo performance for the second time on The Graham Norton Show, which airs on Friday (21Apr17). Executives of Sony Music, who own Harry's label Columbia, have launched a competition for two lucky fans to win tickets to see the performance, which is taped in London on Thursday (20Apr17).

The eaglet’s right foot is a bit swollen, probably because of “all the pulling and tugging trying to free itself,” said Al Cecere, head of the American Eagle Foundation. It appeared to have no broken bones, he said, and is “sitting upright naturally.”
Officials expect to return the eaglet to its nest in a few days, but more tests and exams were planned, officials said.
As DC4 was being rescued, Rauch said its sibling, DC5, “slept through the whole ordeal.” Mama bird First Lady watched from another tree. Papa bird Mr. President soared around the area, officials said.
Rauch said he’d never seen such an incident unfold on camera, in which a baby bird is unable to free itself. It surely happens in the wild, he said, but a live camera feed isn’t available to document it.
Some followers of the live feed criticized wildlife experts, saying human intervention wasn’t needed, and nature should take its course.
Harry Styles accused of ripping off 70s band Badfinger on new solo single Ever Since New York
Harry Styles has yet to release his solo album but the One Direction star's artistry has already been called into question. The singer has been accused of ripping off a British 70s band on new single Ever Since New York. The 23-year-old heartthrob wowed fans with his performance of the song− said to be inspired by his brief romance with Taylor Swift− on America's Saturday Night Live . But it didn't take long for some eagle-eyed (or eagle-eared) fans of Badfinger to notice a glaring similarity. Many fans took to social media to express their disdain over what they claim is a near identical guitar riff to the one used on the track Baby Blue. One person asked: "So did Harry Styles get permission from Badfinger to use the Baby Blue riff for that song?" Another fumed: "F***Harry Styles. Rip-off artist. That riff is NOTE FOR NOTE lifted from Baby Blue by Badfinger.Unbelievable. I'm far too upset about Harry Styles stealing the Baby Blue riff." "This feels so personal. Is he going to rip off some 10cc orT. REX next?" a third wrote. @Pizzawitjo wrote, "I get extra defensive about Badfinger. Putting a Pete Ham credit on that Harry Styles song is VERY important." IBTimes UK has reached out to Styles' representatives for comment. Released in March 1972, Baby Blue is about a woman named Dixie Armstrong, who late frontman Pete Ham had dated. The song peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and has been covered many times since it was first recorded in 1971. In 2013, the song was introduced to a new generation of music fans and enjoyed a chart resurgence after it was played during the final scene of American crime drama, Breaking Bad.
