Martin mentions being sued by someone whose name 'rhymes with Moe Batriani.' :haha:

What was amazing for me is the number of views on YouTube after all...

..

Martin is one despicable ****. There's more musical ability evident in one of Satriani's farts than in Coldplay's entire back-catalogue

"I felt like a dagger went right through my heart. It hurt so much," Satriani reportedly told the Music Radar Web site. "The second I heard it, I knew it was [my own] 'If I Could Fly.' "

When you can play both songs at the same time and it fits perfectly, I guess there is a problem...

Funny. This band started with one big song on album #1, did a second album that was 1/2 good, and now they have to copy others to suck...

Coldplay should be charged for bringing the art of music into disrepute.

I'll pretend i never read that :)

It's quite clear they have taken from that song for the vocal melody but the music itself is different. Feeling like a dagger through the heart is abit over the top Satch. Well unless it was Britney spears copying from Satch Boogie.. then that would be a true disgrace :)

I became aware of him back in 1987, because of this album (cover)..:

Which won him a Grammy award nomination in 1989 for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. (I bought the album, but have fallen behind the curve, so to speak: While he put one solo album out before it, he's put out ten following it...including "Professor Satchafunkilus and the Musterion of Rock". (2008))

Very talented. :D

I'm not convinced it was copied. If they claimed there was influence, I could see it, but it's just as believable to me that there was no relationship. These things can occur by chance. The only really striking similarity is the mi-fa-re lick in the melody, but it could be coincidental. It's three pitches, after all. Sometimes these things evolve analogously, rather than homologously, so to speak. The recurring chord patterns are not that complex, and pretty similar. Two different people composing/improvising over them could easily arrive at some similar melodic structures.

Why do they give Grammys to people who can't put two notes together in tune, unless they have help from computers in a recording studio.
