Steal a few songs and join the rock and roll hall of fame.

During my high school years I was a huge music fan. Bands like Led Zeppelin, Queen, and Black Sabbath were some of my favorites. Years later I heard rumors about Led Zep stealing material. Come to find out it was absolutely true...I mean it's one thing to record someone elses song and then give them some credit and even a little financial compensation...but to just steal the material?

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page actually put their names down as writers of these songs. They've even blocked attempts for people to use them as part of movie soundtracks.

If you are a music fan like myself you might be interested in this.....





I think this tarnishes their legacy.
