Did Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page plagiarise Stairway to Heaven? (video)


“A lawsuit has been filed claiming that the iconic Led Zeppelin songStairway to Heaven” was far from original.

The suit, filed on May 31 in the United States District Court Eastern District of Pennsylvania, was brought by the estate of the late musician Randy California against the surviving members of Led Zeppelin and their record label. The copyright infringement case alleges that the Zeppelin song was taken from the single “Taurus” by the 1960s band Spirit, for whom California served as lead guitarist.”
