Last year Satriani claimed that Coldplay's Grammy nominated hit "Viva La Vida" ripped off his song "If I Could Fly" (see the video after the break). Howard King, Satriani's Lawyer, has hired an army of process servers to make sure that the band gets served at the Grammys, he has made sure to hire enough camera men to get the whole thing on video, and he even had the decency to inform the British rockers legal council of the plans.
Now this potential public humiliation might seem a bit like over kill but King had previously reported that they had tried to solve the matter privately. "We attempted to have a dialogue on this before we went public," King said. "We felt almost forced to file suit."
How rad would it be if the band actually got served on stage?
