Led Zeppelin Due In Court Over Stairway To Heaven Lawsuit

It’s time for Robert Plant and Jimmy Page to answer to the age old question: Did they steal the idea for Led Zeppelin’s most famous song?

Both Plant and Page are due in court on May 10th after a judge decided that “Stairway” and an instrumental track called “Taurus” by a band called Spirit sounded similar enough to let a jury decide if there was any copyright infringement.

Spirit wrote and performed their song “Taurus” in 1967 and toured with Zeppelin in 1968 and 1969 while “Stairway To Heaven” wasn’t released until 1971.
