I think Jimmy is a big fool.He has talent.He played the solo greatly.And it was original.Then why he had to plagiarize another riff which is easier than his original solo? - zxm

The riff or the lyrics.cause honestly I only hear this song for the riffs - zxm
Yeah, but some of them are false rip off sues...
for example, Communication Breakdown is absolutely not similar to EC's Nervous Breakdown (just because both of them are Breakdown) or STH not that similar to Taurus' song... but unfortunately my favorite, the Dazed and Confused is a rip off :/
The riff is from Picture Book by The Kinks - Metal_Treasure
Definitely BS, the songs are not alike at all.
This is a false rip-off suit, I never think he rip-off the "He's so Fine" just because the "ha-lle-lu-jah" is similar to "doo-lang doo-lang doo-lang"
Original is Stevie Wonder's Pasttime Paradise
Sweet Little Sixteen by Chuck Berry. It's the same song with different lyrics - Metal_Treasure
