Jimmy Page Defeats Robbie Williams In Building Dispute


Jimmy Page Robbie Williams

A long-running battle between musicians has finally been settled, not in the charts but through the courts. A three-month long planning row between rock star neighbours Robbie Williams and Jimmy Page was decided in favour of the Led Zeppelin guitarist.

Former Take That singer Williams has ditched plans to add a huge extension to his £17.5 million Grade II-listed London property, including excavating and building a huge two-storey basement. 71 year old Page had fiercely contested the proposal by appealing to the local council on the grounds that it would affect that foundations of his Grade I-listed home.

Led Zeppelin Sort of Lose First Round in 'Stairway to Heaven' Lawsuit


Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page

Maybe this lawsuit won't be as easy to win as Led Zeppelin probably assumed. Back in May, we reported how relations of the Spirit frontman Randy Craig Wolfe filed a suit against Zeppelin seeking monetary damages and a writing credit for the band's monster hit 'Stairway to Heaven'.

Wolfe's family claimed Zep guitarist Jimmy Page ripped his famous chords for the song from Sprit's 1968 tune 'Taurus'. Interestingly, the two bands once toured together and became familiar with each other's tunes.

Is Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' Really The Best Guitar Riff Ever?

Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' has been named the Greatest Guitar Riff of all time in a BBC Radio 2 poll. The blues riff played by Jimmy Page beat the likes of The White Stripes, Nirvana and Metallica. The riff is also recognised by many as the soundtrack of Top of the Pops throughout the 1970s.

Page said of the honor: "I'm knocked out by this, because I didn't expect that to happen. I wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces. But when I played it with the band, it really went into overdrive. There was this intent to have this riff and the movement of it, so it was menacing as well as quite sort of caressing."

Jimmy Page Is "Fed Up" Of Led Zeppelin Frontman Robert Plant Delaying Reunion


Jimmy Page

Any rock n roll fans that are waiting for Led Zeppelin to reunite, it seems former frontman Robert Plant is the problem.

The iconic rock group, who made hut songs such as 'Stairway To Heaven' and 'Whole Lotta Love,' last played a show together almost 7 years ago in December 20007 at London's O2 Arena.

But plans to perform again are constantly delayed, and lead guitarist Jimmy Page is getting "fed up" with the situation, as well as Plant.

Wait, Did Led Zeppelin Really Steal the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Riff?


Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page Robert Plant

A legal dispute has erupted over the provenance of that riff on Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, widely regarded as one of the greatest rock songs of all time. The copyright infringement is being taken on behalf of the late guitarist Randy California, who, perhaps crucially, played on the same bill as Led Zeppelin in the 1960s.

California’s lawyers argue he should be given a writing credit on the 1971 track, perhaps the most lucrative in Zeppelin’s back catalogue. Bloomberg estimate that the eight-minute track had earned £334 million as of 2008. That figure is largely down to the fact that the band did not release it as a single, leaving fans with no option but to buy the entire album, Led Zeppelin IV, at the time.

Led Zeppelin are in legal hot water as a US lawyer is preparing paperwork which claims they ripped off the opening of their 1971 classic ballad ‘Stairway to Heaven’. The lawyer is filing an injunction against the reissue of their album Led Zeppelin IV on behalf of the later guitarist Randy California, who was a member of the band Spirit. If the injunction is filed, Led Zeppelin may end up in court having to defend their creative rights and ownership of the song.
