Is this a baseless accusation or did Chris Martin & co steal from master shredder Satriani?
Watch the video and then decide.
A noted guitarist has sued members of Coldplay, claiming the band’s smash hit “Viva La Vida” copied parts of one of his songs.
The copyright infringement lawsuit by Joe Satriani was filed Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles.
The 52-year-old claims Coldplay copied “substantial, original portions” of his 2004 song, “If I Could Fly.” The Coldplay hit, which was nominated for a Grammy this week, has topped charts around the world and been used to sell iPods in commercials.
