  1. It’s pretty much a total copy. Now do you think that Coldplay actually listens to Joe Satriani?

    In other news, U2 is suing Coldplay for copy everything other than their melodies.

  2. LOL —

    Do you listen to Coldplay? My kids like the Joe Satriani song they do (I like saying that), but that’s about all of their stuff I’ve heard.

  3. Pretty interesting comparison. Without even hearing the Satch song I said no, they didn’t copy him, only because they don’t have that kind of talent. After listening I’m not so sure. They sure do fit together pretty well don’t they?

    I’m not against calling it a coincidence either. I guess we’ll let the judge decide?
