"Led Zeppelin Wins ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Copyright Battle as Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case"

Now what about The Lemon Song? "In December 1972, Arc Music, owner of the publishing rights to Howlin' Wolf's songs, sued Led Zeppelin for copyright infringement on "The Lemon Song". The parties settled out of court. Though the amount was not disclosed, Howlin' Wolf received a check for US$45,123 from Arc Music immediately following the suit, and subsequent releases included a co-songwriter credit for him."--Wikipedia

Thanks for the link. His studio version of Highway 61 on "Second Winter" was and still is smokin'.

One of my favourite artists back in the day. Couldn't get enough of the early stuff: Progressive Blues Experiment, the eponymous Johnny Winter, Second Winter, Johnny Winter And, and Still Alive & Well. And of course his playing on Edgar Winter's White Trash "Roadwork" album. Tobacco Road, man!

I still crank up Still Alive & Well a few times a year.

You're quite welcome.  I was off and on with Johny for a while.  

The more I saw and heard him play, the more I appreciated his ability to play the blues.
