Led Zeppelin To Face New Trial Over "Stairway to Heaven"

Today, a US appeals court has ordered a new trial against Led Zeppelin, which accused them of stealing "Stairway To Heaven.”

Two years ago it was found that they did not take a riff from the band Spirit with their song “Taurus.” However, a three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court Of Appeals ruled unanimously that the lower court judge gave incorrect jury instructions. So now, we are here for a retrial. 

Guitarist Jimmy Page said in his original testimony that it was original and not copied. 

No comment from Led Zeppelin's attorney yet. Stay tuned.
