LA jury clears Led Zeppelin of plagiarism in the 'Stairway To Heaven' case.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant said they were grateful to "put to rest questions about [the] origins...confirming what we have known for 45 years". The classic rock band were alleged to have used a riff from Spirit's song Taurus.

Stairway to Heaven featured on the album Led Zeppelin IV and has won many accolades. Classic Rock magazine championed the 1971 classic as 'the best song ever'. Many other reputable titles in the USA such as Rolling Stone and Guitar World have also praised Zeppelin as one of the greatest songs of all time and the greatest guitar solo respectively.
