If you don't know who Joe Satriani is...


Take your shameful self and make good use of Google.

Assuming you do know who Joe is, then here's the run down...

Joe reckons Coldplay have ripped off his riff. Yep. He reckons they took his riff from "If I could Fly" and added it to their "Vida La Vida".

Unlike, Huey Lewis suing Ray Parker Jr for ripping off some part of his song - taking Want A New Drug's melody and using it for Ghostbusters - which I reckon is only audible to those with bionic hearing. This time it's plain for those with ears to ear. As plain as Vanilla Ice's theft of Queen/Bowie's Under Pressure bits. At least, *I* reckon it's plain to hear.

Check it out yourself...
