actually, it's a different key, it's a different staccatto, it's no where near the same peice as Imagine.

.....and Zeppelin had lifted a lot of stuff that wasn't nailed down. But I'm still a fan. <img src=http://www.plentyoffish.com/smiles/icon_201.gif border=0>

I remember when John Fogarty made his comeback album and had a hit with "Old Man Down The Road" which sounded oddly like his old CCR song, "Run Through The Jungle." Plus Fogarty's "Change In The Weather" (from his 2nd 1980s album) was reminicent of "Heard It Through The Grapevine."

There was a Red Hot Chili Pepper's song a couple years ago (sorry the title of RHCP song escapes me) that had all kinds of controversy for blatently ripping off Tom Petty's Last Dance With Mary Jane. There was even sound files available to compare--and they were really similar.


Most rap music rips off real music. The whole genre is based around taking someone elses original music and sometimes altering it a bit but often just leaving it as it is and talking over it. The one's who take the time to try to alter it into something more original, that's semi-respectable, but the one's who can't be bothered to even alter the sounds in anyway (anyone heard that new Kid Rock song that blatently rips off Warren Zevon's Excitable Boy and Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama--even using the title in the song????!!!!).

Of course in this day in age, as long as it's paid for, and credit is given, it's all fine with most people, but for me, it's just lack of any original ideas, like Hollywood right now, nothing but comic book movies and remakes.

Its just an old thread I found with most of the original posters who have long since deleted their accounts.

Another example is the more recent RHCP's "Dani California" sounding like Tom Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance."

well the opening cords of dont look back in anger is the same cords as imagine by john lennon. where the difference lies is the oasis got permission from the lennon estate to use the cords, george harrison didnt have permission in regard to the chiffons.

Have you ever heard the song "Led Clones" by Gary Moore with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals? It's on Gary's After the War album. Gary steals the opening riff to Kingdom Come's Get It On, and then Ozzy sings "I've heard them on the radio, I saw the crummy video, I don't think I can take much more......Led Clones". That was back in 1985 or 86 and plenty of people were giving those bands flak at the time. In fact we called Kingdom Come "Kingdom Clone".

To be fair though, Zeppelin ripped off a ton of great bluesman and never gave them any credit (at least writing credit that may have helped those blues guys pay a bill or two). Lyrics and riffs. They deserved to be ripped off. But by better people than the one's who did have the guts to rip them off.


To to answer a retort to my previous post in this thread:

Yes, I listen to (well let's say I get forcefed) this underground rap stuff people keep talking about (I work with a bunch of 18-22 year olds who play it constantly). It's just my personal opinion, but it doesn't sound any better or worse than any of the "above ground" stuff. I just don't like, never will and will never have any respect for it unless all the rappers pick up some real instruments and play some real songs and sing instead of talk. I don't like Doris friggin' Day or Perry Como either and no one seems to have any problem with my hardcore stance on that matter. I do however dig a bit of Dean Martin, and I have no problem understanding that my young rap-loving co-workers just can't figure out why.

I remember Led Clones. I friend of my had "After The War" (1989) and it was his favourite song on the album. I think you can find the song on YouTube.

I always thought Great White's song "Rock Me" was a bit Zeppelinesque but on the whole, I gotta agree with ya!


I think maybe in the vocals department, all of them sound a bit like Plant (especially David Coverdale). And the funny thing is, other than that "Get It On" song, Kingdom Come really never even got close to anything Zeppelin did even if you do consider ripping off the chord progression of Kashmir getting close.
