    Page and Plant are vindicated, at least for Stairway to Heaven....I am not so sure about the other songs they stole.

    I don't like this band as much as a lot of people of my generation did
    I don't hate them
    and I don't shit on them just to be edgy or whatever it is
    I just don't like them all that much


    there
    I said it

    Ramble On is the coolest song until you realize it's about Lord of the Rings.

    IDK...if "Taurus" came out before "Stairway", it was 100% theft.
    I don't know the intricacies, so I'm sure I'm mistaken.

    I started to type a knee jerk reaction calling you foolish.... but then I realized I agree. I think I just had my fill in my teens and don't need to revisit them.

    Actually the riff by Taurus and Zep came from a song that was composed in the 1700's! When I heard it on the news, it blew me away.

    It did- there's only 12 notes. Wasn't Taurus copywritten as the note's sequence was public domain?

    They had a few songs like that, didn't they? Early on, Rush tried that too with much less success.

    The Battle of Evermore. Knowing it's about Lord of the Rings ruins it for me. I can't help but picture Elijah Wood.
