PostSubject: JOE SATRIANI Talks About Being 'Ripped Off' By COLDPLAY   Mon Dec 08, 2008 3:04 pm

Legendary rock guitarist Joe Satriani has spoken to MusicRadar.com about his decision to sue COLDPLAY, accusing the Grammy-nominated stars of plagiarizing one of his songs.

According to Reuters, Satriani's copyright infringement suit, filed on Thursday (December 4) in Los Angeles federal court, claims the COLDPLAY song "Viva La Vida" incorporates "substantial original portions" of his 2004 instrumental "If I Could Fly".

The 52-year-old guitar virtuoso is seeking a jury trial, damages and "any and all profits" attributable to the alleged copyright infringement.

Speaking to MusicRadar.com on December 6, Joe Satriani recalled the exact emotion he felt when he first heard COLDPLAY's "Viva La Vida".

"The second I heard, I knew... I felt like a dagger went right through my heart. It hurt so much," Satriani said. "The second I heard it, I knew it was [my own] 'If I Could Fly'."

As it turned out, Satriani wasn't the only one who noticed the similarity between "If I Could Fly" and "Viva La Vida".

"Almost immediately, from the minute their song came out, my e-mail box flooded with people going, 'Have you heard this song by COLDPLAY? They ripped you off man,'" he said. "I mean, I couldn't tell you how many e-mails I received.

"Everybody noticed the similarities between the songs. It's pretty obvious. It's as simple as that when you listen to a song and you say, 'Wow, that's a real rip-off.'"

Saw this on ultimate-guitar, give me a sec while I listen to em both.

EDIT: Ok so if you listen to satriani's version on youtube from 0:53 to 1:15 is almost the exact same as coldplays, so I think Coldplay stole it, >:@

i was listening to people talking about it on the radio. and they played the songs directly over eachother. they sound identical. and yes bumble, coldplay has 0 talent, so i wouldnt be surprised that they have never heard of him before

even i havent heard of joe.

Zero talent?
They are very talented in their genre. That genre happens to be 95% crappy.
But Coldplay is very musically inclined and there are many bands that you can trash that are far worse. The singing sounds very female friendly, however, I think most hate is just because they are mainstream.
But I wouldn't be surprised if they did stealthy copy it
You haven't heard of Joe?
He is a giant icon for guitarists appearing on pretty much every other guitar magazine

You are one mysterious beast
Not much is known about you behind your curly gate
You are not a nine tailed rabbit
But I must persist!
