Cat Stevens Says He May Sue Coldplay
"As reported yesterday, Cat Stevens (also known as Yusuf Islam) is accusing Coldplay of stealing elements of his song "Foreigner Suite" and using them in their Grammy Award winning song "Viva La Vida".

"My son brought it to my attention and said: 'Doesn't that sound like 'Foreigner Suite?" the musician told Reuters.com. "The song definitely sounds like it. It has such logical chords and the melody has to be what it is..."


When asked if he would pursue legal action against the band, he replied "it depends on how well [Joe] Satriani does."

Joe Satriani has also accused Coldplay of plagiarism when he heard striking similarities between his song "If I Could Fly" and Coldplay’s "Viva La Vida". Satriani is currently settling the issue in court.

In other news, Stevens had to postpone a show he in New York on Sunday due to "work permit" issues. The show was in support of his latest album, "Roadsinger", which was released on Tuesday May 5.

"It's just been delayed by a week," he says about his trip to the United States. "The day I was scheduled to go to the [U.S.] embassy they had implemented a new system. There were gremlins in the works, but they [U.S. officials] were all so nice."

Additionally, Stevens is scheduled to play a show in Los Angeles, CA next week and appear on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on May 13.
