I was happy to see this actually. I thought it was a blatant ripoff.

Meh, it's only the main "theme" of satrianis lead there that is similar to the melody, sounds like it could be accidental. Might be ripped of aswell, obviously, but still.

What an idiot Satriani is. Just because he isn't famous he wants to take money from a really successful pop act. I really dislike Satriani for this. I hate Coldplay but Satriani is clearly a money grabbing idiot.

Also, I totally agree with OrganisedConfusion, it's really silly.

Coldplay are one of my most hatest bands. Everything about them is so boring. They aren't doing anything new or interesting, they are challenging anything. They're so crap.

It's safe to say I hate them also lol. biggrin.gif

Some rip offs are blatant but that isn't and is quite clearly not. I doubt it'll get through the courts in favour of Satriani.

That is stupid if Satriani is really suing them because of this.

Well I'm on the Satriani's side here..He got reasons why he sues them..I'm sure its not JUST the money but moral satisfaction (of course he has to ask for money when he sues for it to make impact)..Also I think he wouldn't sue if it was just a random similarity between two songs, maybe he's got more info on the story...

Yeah, man... Money has got nothing to do with this, Satriani has more money,
than this group of girls will ever have... You can hear from a mile away, that that's a
rip off...

Coldplay have much more money unfortunately than Satriani I think you'll find. They play big arena tours constantly and he is supposedly retiring now so he has made a huge amount in Coldplay. The song isn't a rip off. Using the same chord progression isn't ripping it off and they don't play his guitar line. He is just trying to cash in. There aren't many possibilities in music so some things will sound similar.

Satriani is a money grabbing idiot and I actually detest him now. It's disgraceful even if I want Coldplay to never release a new song. Satraini is just jealous that Coldplay made millions on the same chord progression that he made bugger all with.

If you can sue someone for that then I can name about 50 songs that rip off other artists in a similar way.

50? How about in the thousands. I do agree with you Org but it doesn't make it right. But then again we don't really live in a "right" world do we?
