London violinist wins cut in Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’

Reginald Hill was principal second violin in the London Philharmonic Orchestra when he moved to Los Angeles, around 1980, to follow his dream.

He wound up playing in the string ensemble in a Michael Jackson hit.

Now, after a prolonged struggle, Reginald’s widow has begun to earn royalties. Story here.
