This last week it has come to light that a lawyer representing deceased Spirit guitarist Randy California is claiming that Led Zeppelin stole the intro for "Stairway to Heaven" from Spirit's song "Taurus." Attorney Francis Alexander Malofiy is seeking to prevent the release of the upcoming Led Zeppelin IV reissue later this year unless Randy California is given a writing credit on ' Stairway to Heaven.
Compare the two songs, there definitely is a similarity, but do you think it's enough to claim that Randy California deserves credit?
From what I understand, it's the intro to Stairway that's in dispute, which is just a Line Cliche, used in tons of popular songs.
According to Forbes, the likely conclusion will be a settlement, which would be unfortunate.
Page wrote most of Led Zeppelin's music, particularly early in their career, while Plant generally supplied the lyrics.
Jones' keyboard-based compositions later became central to the group's catalogue, which featured increasing experimentation.
Jordan's touch technique is an advanced form of two-handed tapping.
The guitarist produces a note using only one finger by quickly tapping (or hammering) his finger down behind the appropriate fret.
Is it just me, or am I being overly optimistic that the Minor Cliche cannot be copyrighted? After doing a bit of google research I've found that that isn't exactly true, but in order to successfully copyright a chord progression you'd have to come up with an entirely new, unique progression. The chords in question here ( Amin, Amin/maj7, amin7) are so common that, as JP noted, they are called a line If this case was being judged on that basis alone, Randy California, author of "Taurus" would be vulnerable to copyright lawsuits from countless other writers.
The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound has led them to be cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including blues, psychedelia, and folk music.
After changing their name from the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin signed a deal with Atlantic Records that afforded them considerable artistic freedom.
Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page has taken to the stand in the 'Stairway to Heaven' trial.
The civil case, which is being heard in Los Angeles, alleges that band members Page and Robert Plant lifted the opening notes to the iconic song from Randy California band Spirit's track 'Taurus'.
