Another head shaker in the brutal world of music and plagiarism. This time, it's the legendary Cat Stevens asserting that the lollipops from Coldplay stole some of his shit, specifically the melody to Foreigner Suite.
I'm the last guy in the room who would ever...
1) listen to Coldplay
2) defend those cheeseball hipsters
However, since Cat Stevens is a couple of cans short of a six-pack, who the hell knows. Then again, Joe Satriani also accused Coldplay of shenanigans.
To call Coldplay "Radiohead-lite" is an insult to Thom Yorke and the citizens of whatever planet he's from. Bottom line, Coldplay is just a really bad and cheap knock-off of Radiohead. Sort of like going down to Chinatown and buying a fake iPod called an iPud.
