Led Zeppelin are currently involved in a copyright lawsuit in a federal court in California over the creation of their 1971 classic, “Stairway To Heaven.”

The suit - brought by the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy California and members of the band – claims the acoustic introduction to “Stairway” was lifted from their 1968 instrumental, “Taurus.”
