I am sure you have heard the news that broke last night, that after more then 41 years, the band Led Zeppelin is being sued for plagiarism. The band Spirit has claimed that the opening to Stairway to Heaven is written by deceased guitarist Randy California. The band did not have the money to pay for lawyers, which is why the band waited so long to sue.
I had never heard of the band Spirit until today. After listening to the song Taurus, which was released 3 years before Stairway, I can say without a doubt that Led Zeppelin ripped them off.
I am sure this will be settled out of court, but we will have to wait an see.
And that is why Taurus by Spirit is todays song of the day!
