That's unbelievable! Good example mate.

The great white intro was also a bit cheeky.

I can't watch the videos, so don't know if these have already been mentioned ...

 

Andy Taylor's 'Take It Easy' and Thunder's 'Dirty Love' (didn't Mr. Taylor produce 'Backstreet Symphony'? ;))

Are we sure Whitesnake didn't take inspiration from the original?

It's a bit blurry, but i think the date says 1991, so i don't think so.

The Coldplay one is fairly recent. From memory i think joe may have

Taken legal action on that one.

I'm sure i can remember Chris Martin making a publc statement about it.

Still think Slade ripped it off though as Til Deaf is 1981.....but its a close call.

I hadn't heard the Slade one before, but bloody hell it's almost identical.

The dates would suggest that Whitesnake was first.

Whoever was first must have been pretty pissed when they heard the other one.

I'll never doubt you again Karpet.6

So, the Lion version is actually fairly true to the original, aside from the obvious modern (at that time) sound. And it really only sounds like the 1989 version of "Fool for Your Lovin'." It doesn't sound much like the 1980 version. Also, the original Slade song doesn't sound a whole lot like the original Whitesnake song. If any of that makes sense.

 

I think it's all coincidence.

 

Oh, and as a sidenote, I love Slade, and "Lock Up Your Daughters." So it's all win/win/win as far as I'm concerned.
