Stairway_2_Heaven_smLed Zeppelin Dodged a Bullet

A court has found that Led Zeppelin did NOT steal the intro to “Stairway To Heaven” from the band, Spirit. This is a great relief to Led Zeppelin and their fans around the world. For Spirit and their fans – not so much. However, fans of both camps know that in all likelihood, Jimmy DID nick the lick, because the two bands toured together all those years ago and how could that intro not  become an ear-worm for Jimmy? That said, the rest of the song kicks ass and has nothing in common with the song Taurus. It would have become a classic anyway. I mean come on… we’re talking about LED ZEPPELIN!
