Paul finally signed the ABKCO deal for 20%, but not of the whole. “I said, ‘It can’t be on everything, we’ve already got the EMI contract – and he can’t just have 20 per cent of that.’ They said, ‘Okay, just on any increase that he gets.’ In other words, if he goes to Capitol and negotiates a new deal, then he can have 20 per cent on the difference between the old deal and the new deal. I wasn’t keen to have him, but I thought that was fair.” Paul eventually caught Klein out on this deal, when he ‘did’ bank 20 per cent of the whole.
