Joe Satriani, the best guitar instrumentalist who ever lived and my personal fav guitar god, has filed a lawsuit against British band Coldplay for plagiarizing one of his songs. Coldplay’s Viva la Vida released either in 2008 or 07, sounds a lot like Joe’s If I Could Flydownload one magic christmassamson and delilah onlinedownload alien raiders dvd off his 2004 album Is There Love In Space? – the melody and chord progressions sounds very similar.
I have worshiped Satriani since 1992 and have all his albums. He is one of my favourite musicians and I play his songs all the time. Coldplay – I couldn’t care less about them; they don’t inspire me and their music style is what I jokingly call “whimp rock”. Sue their asses to court Joe!
And if you need to check out the two similar sounding melodies, look below.
I wonder! How many kids told their parents “Mom, dad, when I grow up I want to be a tv evangelist. I want to make lots of money, preaching to people about what I think god is telling them to do. I want to be on tv stations across the globe, watched by millions of believers and they should hang onto my every word. I want them to come to my sessions and be amazed at my speech. I want to cheat them of their hard earned money and make me rich. I want that money to pay for the buses, limos & jets that I will buy and emblaze with my logo and I can travel in style. I want that money to pay for my palatial white house, where I’ll keep my wife & kids in one wing and my mistress and my alter boys in another. I want my own tv channel.”
