"Stairway to Heaven: The Song Remains Pretty Similar" and "Listen To These Clips And Decide If 'Stairway To Heaven' Is A Ripoff Of An Obscure Song From The 60s".
"Elvis wasn’t the first to steal black music: 10 white artists who 'borrowed' from R&B before The King".
And this last one reminds me of Picasso's "Good artists copy but great artists steal": "Bob Dylan’s ‘Da Vinci Code’ Revealed".
Researchers say they’ve uncovered more than 1,000 items lifted from other authors in Dylan’s ‘Chronicles.’ And that’s just the beginning.
