I do remember John Fogerty getting sued for 'plagarising' himself. He wasn't even allowed to perform Creedence songs in concert until the whole mess was straightened out, even though he wrote, arranged, and produced them himself.

Led Zeppelin also got sued by Willie Dixon. It seems Robert Plant 'borrowed' some of the old blues guys' expressions from their old tunes, but Page's riffs were his own.

Everyone knows The Beach Boys' 'Surfin' USA' is the same tune as Chuck Berry's 'Sweet Little Sixteen'. They had to give him a songwriting credit (and royalties that go with it) to keep him from suing.

The strangest case I can recall is with Rod Stewart's hit song 'Forever Young'. I think he gave Bob Dylan a co-writing credit because Dylan has a song by the same name, but as far as I can tell, that is where the similarities end. They are 2 seperate songs with 2 seperate melodies.

Rod's song 'Tonight's The Night' has the same melody as The Dead's 'Sugaree', but I don't recall any lawsuit about that.

No one decends 4 chords and the other got about 7 chords descending and ascending with loads of variation.

The riff from Van Halen's "Best of Both Worlds" always reminded me of "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang. Wonder if the topic ever came up when they toured together a couple of years ago?

I've always thought the groove behind the guitar solo on "Money" was right out "The Grand Wazoo". Even the guitar tone is similar.

well, the build-up of both tracks are very much the same (two parts), the way they both suddenly end and also; both tracks have the same spot on the original LPs (last track on side one).
maybe coincidental, but I've always heard a lot of beatles influences in the early years of king crimson.

the song 'happy family' on the 'lizard' album is even about the beatles (and they're on the cover).

no big deal if you don't agree. I'm a big fan of both bands. 8)

I agree - particularly the Belew period of King Crimson sounds a bit Beatley to me. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

On his 1984 lecture tour, Robert Fripp said that the Beatles were one of his most favourite groups. They taught him everything he needed to know about love, three minutes at a time.

Parts of George Harrison's Long Long Long bear an uncanny resemblance to the chorus of Dylan's Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands.

Thanks MB.

When I saw JT in 2008 'WeUsedToKnow' was in the setlist and Ian spoke briefly about this.

Remember the Heavy Metal soundtrack? There was a blue oyster cult song on it called "veteran of the psychic wars". Very similar in music and theme to an old Funkadelic tune called "march to the witches castle" on the album Cosmic Slop.

A while back I was listening to a lot of Sun Ra. It was all on YouTube so I don't remember any of the names of the songs but I noticed a lot of similarities to parts in Zappa's music. In particular a tune that was like "ripoff" similar to "filthy habits". Anyone know the song I'm talking about? That's pretty good when an influential icon like Sun Ra steals from you, lol
