listen and decide for yourself…not that it will matter though…only the jury members’
opinions matter to Joe and his bank account.

  1. I hadn’t heard about this before, and just expected some vague similarity – but this is very obvious.

    Not only have Coldplay blatantly ripped Joe Satriani off, their version is clearly inferior.

    (and Chris Martin is the devil…)

  2. Notes and cords.
    Alot of people in the music do it.
    Rappers do it in all most all of their songs.
    But I could understand why he would be upset with coldplay.

  3. God it is the same song I can’t believe that Coldplay would do something this obvious. I’m sure Joe would have agreed if they just asked. Everybody else already LEGALLY uses his like for their cause. Satriani’s music is used all over commercials, video games and sports casts and nobody even realizes it until you become a fan. Coldplay needs to own up and pay up
