I know in the Grateful Dead's case one of their managers ripped off the band, and what made it especially awkward was that he was the father of one of the drummers, Mickey Hart. This lead to couple year-long 'hiatus' of Mickey from the band.

The song "He's Gone" was about the episode, including the classic line "Steal your face right off your head". This is why the Dead's logo with weird skull and lightning bolt is called a "stealie".
