Breaking down the case: Satriani v Coldplay

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 2:10 pm

Hey, Coldplay isn’t the most original band in the world. Joe Satriani didn’t need to take them to court to prove that. This really clears things up – it likely wasn’t intentional, but those two songs are nearly identical, and it’s not just the solo, which is what most people are focusing on, and likely wouldn’t have been enough to go to court over. (Watch about from about 6:40 on if you only want to hear the evidence, watch the whole thing if you want to know WHY they’re the same.)
