Coldplay in Grammy lawsuit worry
Joe Satriani could serve up legal papers at the Grammys.
Coldplay could be hit with legal papers this weekend Coldplay could be served with legal papers for a plagiarism lawsuit at the Grammys, it has been claimed.

US guitarist Joe Satriani is attempting to sue the band, alleging they took the melody from his 2004 instrumental If I Could Fly and used it in their single Viva La Vida.

Howard King, the musician's lawyer, claimed that Coldplay, who deny the allegation, have been avoiding attempts to serve them with legal papers.

The attorney added: "We have warned their British lawyers that we have hired a fleet of process servers lined up to dog the band everywhere they go this weekend in the hopes of serving them."

Coldplay will be attending the Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 9th), where they are nominated for seven gongs, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Best Rock Performance.

In addition, the band has scooped four nominations at the Brit Awards, being in the running in the best British group, album, single and live act categories.

Wow. It is definitely the same hook. Played on guitar rather than sung, but the tempo and dynamics are the same. If it is a coincidence then it's quite a coincidence...
