Dear Marc,
    Your problem, unfortunately is not uncommon.
    The first question is how did the publication get your pictures? If the
musician gave them to the paper for PR use you should take it up with him.
At a newspaper or magazine, when you get PR photos from someone, you assume
you can publishing them, without payment or credit for that matter.
    The next what,  rights were spelled out in you licensing agreement with
the musician?
    Next, did you properly register your photographs with the copyright
office? Without this, collecting for infringments is more difficult.
    For more detailed information look at
    As for the incorrect credit, it most likely was a typing error or sloppy
editing, try to forget about it.
Good Luck,
