I've never heard this song in my life until today, and there is undoubtedly a Stairway feel to it. Lawsuit worthy I suppose, kinda sad what money inclines people to do. Didn't these 2 bands tour together a few hundred years ago?
huh ?!?!? Do you, people, really find a sound (as in solid) similarity between this song and Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" ?!?!? I just can't believe you lack so much of musical inclination. Or you don't really listen to these 2 songs side-by-side. Btw ... the late mr. Wolfe from Spirit needed 30 years to actually make such a claim ??? Really ?!? If it wasn't for the real law suit on going now, I'd be inclined to consider this one a funny joke...
SPIRIT was a GREAT band - Randy California (what a COOL name! sorry he left us so soon -1989, RIP, great man), his stepfather, Ed Cassidy on drums & Jay Ferguson for a spell (plus one other dude, whose name I forget-sorry) - Their 1st 3 LPs are golden - THE FAMILY WHO PLAYS TOGETHER..., SPIRIT and, of course, TWELVE DREAMS OF DR. SARDONICUS. A Trifecta of gems.
It is in a way a paraphrase to Stairway. And in another way it is flattery to Zep. BTW, does anyone remember George Harrison's ordeal over 'My Sweet Lord'? He was sued by the Chiffons (If I recall correctly) for plagiarism for hacking their song 'He's So Fine'? George then responded with 'My Song'. And in the lyrics he sings; "there is nothing Bright (Brite) about it", referring to the company that sued him.
