Led Zeppelin ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Copyright case returns
It was 2014 when Michael Skidmore, the man in charge of the estate of former Spirit guitarist Randy California, filed a lawsuit against Led Zeppelin in reference to their iconic track ‘Stairway to Heaven’.
The 1971 song is synonymous with Zep but Michael Skidmore has made the claim that the introduction to the hit was inspired by his client’s 1968 instrumental ‘Taurus’. The case had already been at trial in 2016 with a five-day continuous hearing when the LA jury ruled in Led Zeppelin’s favour. But now the case is heading back to trial.
