Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani is boiling mad over a song from popular British band Coldplay.

The 52-year-old musician is suing the Grammy-nominated act, accusing them of plagiarizing one of his tracks, Reuters reports.

The copyright infringement suit, filed on Thursday in Los Angeles, claims the Coldplay song "Viva La Vida" incorporates "substantial original portions" of his 2004 instrumental "If I Could Fly."

The song, which comes off their album "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends," is credited to the band's four members, singer Chris Martin; bass player Guy Berryman; guitarist Johnny Buckland; and drummer Will Champion.

The Satriani track comes from his album "Is There Love in Space?" A response from Coldplay's management was not immediately available.

Satriani is seeking a jury trial, damages and "any and all profits" attributable to the alleged copyright infringement.


Coldplay racked up seven Grammy nominations on Wednesday, with some from the song in question.
I can't imagine the guys from Coldplay listening to Satriani records, but it sounds pretty much identical. They were accused before over the same song. I have a feeling a settlement will be reached.

Sounds like what the Stones did to The Verve with the song "bitter sweet symphony"

wow.

It's the same song.

BTW. It wasn't the Stones. It was the Stones' old manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
