So the estate of a guy who passes away 17 years ago is suing over a song released 43 years ago.the lawsuit was filed on behalf of the trust of Spirit guitarist Randy California, who died in 1997.
Randy California didn't often speak about the similarity between the two songs. By many accounts, he was an easygoing sort who didn't let it bother him.
lame, if they were offered money or just his name on the credits, I wonder which they would take....the lawyer should be shot, just sayinIs there a similarity? Sure.
But overall, it seems like a cash grab by people who weren't even affected by it.

Sounds fishy to me.
