Coldplay Surfs to Big Bucks by Stealing From the Alien

Big news in the music world today as guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani formally filed suit against Coldplay for ripping off his song "If I Could Fly" with the title track from their newest album "Viva La Vida."

In an exclusive interview with musicradar.com, Satrani lays it down:

"Everybody assumes I'm trying to go after these guys in Coldplay, as if I'm doing this with malice, that's the furthest thing from my mind. I'm just doing what I need to do as an artist, to protect what's mine, to protect those feelings I put down in song," Satriani says.

What Satriani meant to say was, "booh dam bah doo dam, widdleh widdleh wahhh..SOLO!"

At any rate, Satriani was reluctant to take the band to court, but he was "tired of being ignored."


This just goes to show that when you surf with the alien, you get burned.

Judge for yourself:
