Joe Satriani Sues Coldplay Over “Viva La Vida”
Probably a bit sore after realising he named his recent album after a famous architectural practice, Satriani pays it foward to Coldplay. The virtuoso guitarist filed a lawsuit claiming “Viva la Vida” contains “substantial original portions” of his 2004 instrumental tune “If I Could Fly”. Satriani wants a jury trial, damages, and “any and all profits” from the song.
So my advice to marcus is wait till the ’surfing with the alien’ dude is riding the wave of Cold (play) Hard Cash.*
