| A U.S. jury will decide whether the opening section of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” — one of the most famous passages in rock music — was lifted from the late Randy Wolfe, also known as Randy California — a songwriting member of the American rock group Spirit.|
Led Zeppelin’s lead singer Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page, the song’s composers, will face a copyright trial after a U.S. district judge in Los Angeles ruled Friday that the plaintiff had made a strong enough case in its claim of copyright infringement to send the matter to a jury. The lawsuit was brought by a trustee for the estate of Randy Wolfe.
