Joe Satriani has filed a lawsuit against Coldplay, accusing the popular British band of plagiarizing one of his songs on their latest hit album, according to court documents published on Thursday.
Satriani recorded "If I Could Fly" back in 2004 and it sounds a lot like Coldplay's "Viva la Vida". In fact, after you watch the youtubery below, you'll hear the similarities. My sweet Lord!
I picked up Joe Satriani's Flying in a Blue Dream back in 1989 when Q107 was playing the crap out of "Big Bad Moon".
