I love it when a "musician" uses the word "sample"...

In other words, really you don't have the musical talent or creativity so you RIPPED the tune for someone...

You mean like how most musicians ripped off black musicians for their own gain? Like how Elvis did it? How white of you.

James, Ripped what off? Taking a style of music and creating your own take on it is ripping off?... Not coping... Big difference.

Led Zeppellin were the worst offenders when it came to ripping off other artists.
