Starting May 10th, Led Zeppelin will have to defend themselves in a U.S. Federal court against a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Michael Skidmore, the trustee of the Randy Craig Wolfe Trust, on behalf of the late Spirit guitarist who wrote “Taurus” and performed under the name Randy California. But, according to The Pulse Of Radio, the lawsuit could be settled for one dollar.
Bloomberg.com says that “Robert Plant and Jimmy Page would have to give dead rocker Randy California a writing credit on… ‘Stairway To Heaven’. And that’s probably worth a lot more than a buck. In fact, the estimated performance and publishing value is over $560 million.
