Quote:A detailed new report from Businessweek says the now-defunct band Spirit is working with a team of lawyers to build a case against Led Zeppelin and take them to court over ‘Stairway’, saying it ripped its iconic opening riff from a song they wrote back in 1968 called “Taurus”.
Spirit toured with Led Zeppelin as the opener in 1968, when the latter band were making their American debut. They argue that this tour is when Jimmy Page heard a riff from “Taurus” and re-worked it into the opening notes for ‘Stairway’.
heres the song the are claiming has been plagiarized. I think they have a legitimate case, what say you?
This is huge. One of the most Iconic songs of Rock and Roll history was stolen. Imagine the settlement they will get if the Judge rules in their favor.
