re: #342 ObserverArt

I just put a YouTube of some of the claims of borrowing in the pages article about Spirit suing Zep in Randy California’s name.

By the way, are you familiar with Zep’s management? I’m thinking that had something to do with claims not being settled. Peter Grant was a class one-A, son-of-a-bitch, hard-knocking, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He probably scared the beejesus out of anyone claiming anything.

I always assumed it was that Zeplin was so rich and record companies were making so much money that this stuff was handled quietly. I still like Zeplin but for me it does limit their legacy having ripped off so much music. Everybody gets hit with plagiarism claims sometimes but I think Zeplin was clearly stealing songs.
