Stairway To Litigation

It took a while – like 40 years – but the band that allegedly created the famous riff of ‘Stairway To Heaven’ has had enough.

John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page appear at a media screening in London to promote Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day” concert film.

It’s not at all a surprise that the famous song has some alleged help in its creation. Heck, it’s not even a surprise to learn that Led Zeppelin has a history of mimicking people. 

But it is interesting that Zep is getting hit with a lawsuit so many years after the fact. However, BusinessWeek’s Vernon Silver does an amazing job of explaining this whole plan.
