There's a few web articles on the new lawsuit. One has a YouTube video with Coldplay's song, followed by Satriani's solo, then mixed together. Might be tough for Coldplay to fight this one.

The most disturbing part of this to me is that Satriani listened to Coldplay long enough to notice :(

Don't know why you could like Satriani and not like Coldplay, since the songs are identical. You trying to be a nonconformist, Miles? You probably don't have to try too hard.

Someone just reminded me that the Coldplay song is on some ipod ad or something. It would be hard for anyone to miss that. Maybe Joe will get the Apple royalties.

Not the same at all.

Personally I'd rather stick pins in my eyeballs than waste my valuable time on either of them. Let them fight it out, they can afford it. Who really cares how they divide up their royalties apart from their lawyers, publishers and bank managers. Does anyone else really care except Satriani's music publishers? And I'd guess that it'll be the publishers chasing an easy share of a massive royalty, rather than Satriani himself, who have instigated the litigation. There are only 12 notes for christ's sake, sometime somewhere, whether you intend it or not, there's gonna be some similarity. Go ask Hari Georgeson.

I've been known to add several more to my repetoire, Paul, but their rarely accepted. Or even planned for that matter.

I wouldn't go see either of them if they were playing a free show across the street.

I saw Coldplay on TV recently, and I think Bono should be suing the lead singer for doing an awful impression of his act.

We all know that on a basic progression like that, strong melodic lines just happen. The fewer and "purer" the chords, the more readily two or two hundred people will come up with a similar line. The melody in question is, in fact, a very simple "sequence".

I agree with the critics: Both Coldplay and Satch are unbearably boring on this particular tune.
