Led Zeppelin Accused of Plagiarising 'Stairway to Heaven'
A lawyer representing deceased Spirit guitarist Randy California is claiming Led Zeppelin copyrighted "Stairway to Heaven" from Spirit's hit song "Taurus." Led Zeppelin and Spirit played together in 1968 and 1969 when "Taurus" was released. When the 1971 "Stairway to Heaven" came out, California was reported as saying it was "a rip off." His lawyer is pushing to stop the release of the Led Zeppelin IV reissue set for early June.
