Did Led Zeppelin Steal Stairway to Heaven?

 

In 1970 Led Zeppelin put out "Stairway to Heaven".  Mark Andes, the bassist in Spirit, says the two bands played many shows together in 1969 and he believes Page heard them doing "Taurus." In an interview in 1997, Spirit guitarist Randy California, who wrote "Taurus," said, "It was a ripoff and the guys made millions of bucks on it and never said ‘Thank you,’ never said, ‘Can we pay you some money for it?’ It’s kind of a sore point with me. Maybe someday their conscience will make them do something about it.” California died in 1997 and now Andes is working with a legal team who plan to file suit against Zeppelin.

 

What do YOU think?  Does Spirit have a case?
