Cat Stevens, Father and Son VS. Flaming Lips, Fight Test<br><br>-Friday June 27, 2003 @ 01:00 PM<br>By: ChartAttack.com Staff<br><br>According to an article published earlier this month in the U.K. paper The Herald, Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne told a German website that he himself could see the similarities between the two songs. "I don't really know the song as well, but I do see now that it definitely has got some resemblance with the Cat Stevens' song. It feels like a sort of re-edition of the sort of story-telling he did." <br><br>Luckily, the dispute between Stevens and the Lips didn't end up becoming a huge legal battle. According to the official Yusuf Islam website, the two parties came to a reasonable agreement.

keith emerson stole the opening to a bill evans song from this album & used it in a solo on pictures at an exhibition...pure theft of the entire intro theme

Image



also, some guitarist [rick derringer's solo in free ride maybe?] stole a sugar cane harris riff from gumbo variations almost note for note....can't think of who it was

Songs that don't sound the same unles attempted by me on the guitar :<br>Pink Floyd "Money" / FZ "Bamboozled by love". Each riff turns into the other one!<br>A sort of Dark Side of the Moon Unit.  ;D

If you play the intro of Stairway to Heaven -and everybody who laid hands on the guitar one time or another knows how to play it- fast enough and repeat every chord three times, it sounds like the guitar solo in the middle of -I think it was- The Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden. That's one thing I realized about 15 years ago when I was playing the damned thing. I have neither tried the riff nor played the guitar for a looong time, so I'd be glad if someone would try it out and see if it works.

upon happenin to give this further consideration after a two day sabattical i declare a revolutionary new angle regarding the history of the evolution of popular music , that is this : <br><br>punk ripped off frank , and frank invented punk, or the basis of it in one fell swoop in that guitary riff punky bit in CHEEPNIS.<br><br>well , thats my theory anyway. and not surprising anyway as the guy had enough ideas in any one song to sustain many many successful music carrears. <br><br>mungo

The lemon song on Led zeppelin II is a direct rip from willie dixon and they put their own fucking names as composers. and alot of their other stuff is lifted from the old blues guys without citing them. that's rock and roll for ya though! it's the folk process steal or be stolen from.

Strange brew by the cream is a direct musical lift from Albert king.
Alot of musicians also copy other people's whole style of singing or playing. personally i think Tom waits royally ripped off beefheart's schtick.
I could think of alot more people who try to sing just like someone else. that haitian singer wyclef jean from the fugees does this pseudo bob marley style whining. alot of reggae and blues and rock "artists" totally rip each other off. not that it doesn't happen in folk, jazz etc...

Triumph's "Rock and Roll Machine" is a total ripoff of Deep Purple's "Speed King". Also their "American Girls" sounds a lot like "School's Out".. The irony is I was into Triumph before either of the latter bands, so I thought they were really hot shit. I should have known...

You didn't fuck up... it's an old thread of the pre-06 Forum Crash. Back then this forum used YaBB, not PHPBB2.
YaBB put a link to the quoted message right above the quote text box if you clicked on "quote". phpBB2 doesn't do that.
