    Sorry Al, I misunderstood which one. Thanks for the clarification. When J.P. loses this suit I'll update the link ;)

    There are much better examples of where Jimi Page blatantly ripped off not only music, but lyrics. "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" is one that comes to mind. This song has some similarities, but not enough to pass my litmus test. Suit denied.

    Did anyone mention that Spirit toured with Led Zep, just before Stairway was written. Come on it doesn't take much stretch to imagine Page liked the intro, changed it enough to make it his own.
