There's a story in today's online NME about how Joe Satriani reckons Coldplay ripped off his song If I Could Fly on their latest single, Viva La Vida. He's planning to take them to court to sue them for all profits made by the song, which I guess will amount to everything they made from the singles sales, a hefty chunk of the album's royalties, and maybe some of the tour earnings too.

I'll put links in the next post. What d'you think about it?

oh well dont think it will bother coldplay much they got a few quid

remember the verve track "bittersweet symphony" that used rolling stones guitar riff from "the last time"

they had to sign the royalties over to the stones who in turn had been stung by their former manager who conned them into giving him the publishing rights to nearly all their tracks in the 60's

allen klein..... i think he still gets more money than the stones for half their work

Ah, I'd known about the Bittersweet Symphony thing since it happened, but never knew it was The Last Time they swiped the riff from. I'll have to dig it out now and check it out.
