When I first heard that Joe Satriani was accusing Coldplay
of copying his 2004 song "If I Could Fly" in their "Viva La Vida," well I thought it was a bit of a stretch. Coldplay are hipster dudes who probably are allergic to anything with too much testosterone or flashy technique. Plus, it isn't like Joe is in his commercial prime as he was around the time of Surfing With The Alien. Odds are, Coldplay's members never heard of Joe, much less his song.

Then I checked this video out on YouTube. That is one hell of a coincidence. Hopefully the two parties can work it out, and maybe perform together at the Grammys, letting Coldplay off the legal hook, and giving Joe some much-needed promotion.
