That's hectic!

I agree good publicity for the satch too!

I'm on his side all the way on this one:)

I think the main problem at hand for Satch is that if he were to perform If I could Fly in front of people who are not familiar with his music... people will be inclined to think that he copied Coldplay... or if they just hear that part of the song they may even think that he is covering the song viva la vida!

and to me thats a problem.

here is my take on this:


joe satriani is easily a more knowledgeable person in the music arts than cold play.

im sure if he wanted to he could find a million other songs that sound like his HOWEVER,

i trust his musical ear, and i am sure, that he heard something in that song that made him think that they plagiarized it.


satch isnt the kind of musician that would "sue" ...then again i dont know him personally (even though we live very close to each other)

i hope satch wins...hopefully itll send out a message to other musicians to write their own stuff!

Here's my take. I am on Satriani's side regardless of merit. I had never heard of Cold Play before this, but I have looked at a few videos, and besides being a lame near-boy band without any artistic merit, the singer looks like a bearded buck tooth rabbit.

That is enough reason for me to side with Satriani, I will side with a bald guy over a boy band singer who looks like a bearded rabbit.

i know, but still, it isnt fair, i think coldplay will have the upper hand because their song is newer and more well heard of..

Think it's an influenced coincidence.

Maybe Coldplay's limo driver listens to Satch, and they heard it in the background while drinking their Crystal wine one day.... Then, weeks later, trying to write a song, Coldplay's the guitar player comes up with the chord progression. Strangely enough, this just pops out of the vocalist. Everyone says "Yes sir! That's our next Juno" (I can't remember what the US one is...a grammy maybe?).

Anyways, I'm a neutral party. I can't say I'm too fond of either group. Maybe we should start a fund to get them two groups to wear dresses on stage. They are only embarrassing themselves, (*COUGH - NAPSTER*). After seeing this, Satch would probably suggest a g-string for a pay raise. Coldplay would video tape it and sell it to a sick market overseas. I say overseas, so Scatch couldn't sue them. We'd only have an endless cycle that way. Sounds familiar, someone doing work, and someone else collect money.

Why? Because money rules all - Dolla' dolla' bill y'all. It's all the white collars with their "society". Society man....society.

NOW.... I ask, who knows what movie he's from?
