It seems that the Coldplay vs. Joe Satriani feud is over…but not officially. It’s just rumour right now. Reports are saying that Joe Satriani’s plagiarism lawsuit against Coldplay has been dismissed. An out of court agreement was made to settle things with both parties. Which probably means that Joe Satriani and Chris Martin has been discussing things privately behind the scenes.
More on it here:
If this news is true, that’s good news for the both of them. Hopefully Joe and Chris Martin are both on good terms ’cause life is too short to hold negative grudges.
Edit to add: Billboard confirmed the news is true…
Coldplay is not required to admit any wrongdoings, so that means they don’t have to admit that they borrowed ideas from Joe’s song.
I always knew Coldplay was innocent from day 1, ever since this started.
