When did this come about? Seems rather unfair, dunnit?You don't as a rule get writer credit for the drum patterns on a song, or for the bass line.
The song is normally defined by the chord progression, vocal melody and lyrics. That's what you get writing credits for.
Otherwise every session musician that ever worked on any recording would be demanding a writing credit.
