"According to Smokey Johnson, Fuchs approached him in 1997 after an awards show and offered him $500—$100 up front—in exchange for a 50 percent share in the copyrights to many of his compositions and the ability to act as Johnson’s agent. Johnson considered the offer an insult and tore up the contract. “I was so mad, I just wanted to give the money to the church,” he says. In fact, he did sign the initial check over to Asia Baptist Church, but as the contract he tore up stipulates, “Deposit of the check will constitute an agreement,” so the deal was made without his signature."
