Members of legendary rock band Led Zeppelin face a May 10 trial over claims that they ripped off another artist to make the iconic song "Stairway to Heaven."

In an interview, Malofiy said the sanctions order "went absolutely against the weight of the evidence."
Translation: They didn't decide in my favour, so obviously, they don't understand my argument.

April's fool? It's worthy….

Led Zeppelin ripped off a LOT of other musicians along the way. I've listened to almost all the comparisons and the only one that I can't get on board with is this one. The Spirit song doesn't sound at ALL like Stairway to Heaven so there is no merit to this case. It's more that his greedy ass family is looking for a free payout. I hope they fail…

You can spend a pleasant hour on YouTube watching "Led Zrppelin Plagiarism" videos.
It's a long list.
Paige and Plante never felt the need to credit those they … paid tribute to.
Here's a bonus. "When the Levee Breaks". It's a GOAT, but not original. The original is pretty awful, and the Zeppelin is a 1000% upgrade, but still an uncredited ripoff. Any credit given was post facto and grudging.

And I agree with Nazrat about Stairway. One or two notes, if you strain at it.
But the rest of their catalog…..

It's a Smokey word. "Greatest of All Time".

Better looking than Page or Plant…
Page, definitely, no gurning, duckwalking or similar showboating.
Plant, No. You're comparing a good looking woman to a rock God in his prime. Sexual attraction is one thing, looking good is something else.

If Vanilla Ice can get away with ripping off Queen, there is no justice

Um, Vanilla Ice most certainly did NOT get away with anything. He paid Queen a substantial amount of money and had to give both them and David Bowie writer's credit. So there WAS justice!
