Sue you, Sue me Blues

Why were Led Zeppelin sued for their tune Boogie with Stu?   Who was handed a lawsuit for sounding too much like…himself?  What other rockers were lambasted for ripping off their peers?  Dan files his expose today at 4 on The List.  It’s the Sue You, Sue Me Blues.



Boogie with Stu-Led Zeppelin (Sued by Richie Valens estate for borrowing from Ohh My Head)
All You Need is Love-Beatles (Glenn Miller Estate Sued)
Old Man Down the Road-John Fogerty (Sued by Fantasy Records for sounding like himself!)
I Want a New Drug-Huey Lewis (Huey sued Ray Parker Jr. for Ghostbusters Theme)
My Sweet Lord-George Harrison (Chiffons sued him)
