    I don't know if this is borrowing or paying homage





    At :45 seconds.




    They actually say "It sounds like, uh, John Paul and George"

    Great examples here! Some of these are so blatantly stolen :heheh:



    Oh Louis, you plagiarist you, I'm telling on ya!

    :D

    Actually cool song you got there and what better inspiration than a scorchin' track like Painkiller :grinthumb


    The Kinks' Ray Davis filed a lawsuit against The Doors as he thought their track 'Hello I Love You' was a rip off of 'All Day and All of the Night'. He won the case and all royalties from The Doors' song have since gone to him.




    Hello I Love You

    This one is rather ironic, given how much Chris Impellitteri has "borrowed" off Malmsteen over the years :heheh:

    Impellitteri - Stand in Line (1988)


    Yngwie Malmsteen - Making Love (1990)

    'Borrowed' is a nicer term than rip-off i suppose.

    I don't know which was first: Alice Cooper's School's Out or Uriah Heep's Spider Woman (Magician's Birthday). Same with Deep Purple's Woman from Tokyo and Meadows by Joe Walsh. Hot Blooded by Foreigner copies both. Steve Miller borrowed the Crossroads Blues riff from Cream for Jet Airliner. He also borrowed Alright Now from Free for Rockin' Me. Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie was blatantly copied on Ice, Ice Baby by Rob Van Winkle.
