Led Zeppelin is facing a lawsuit over their legendary song, Stairway to Heaven. A lawyer representing the late Randy California of the band Spirit is claiming that Zeppelin ripped off the song from Spirit's 1969 song, Taurus.
A member of Led Zeppelin has responded.
Jimmy Page kept his response short and sweet. The French magazine Liberation asked Page about the lawsuit. Page responded:
"This is ridiculous. I have no further comment on the subject."
Francis Malofiy, the lawyer who is suing Led Zeppelin, recently was admonished by a judge in another case. Malofiy brought a similar lawsuit against the singer Usher. In that case, a judge said that the lawyer's actions are the "paradigm of bad faith and intentional misconduct."
