    I like my answer that I posted in the Jimi Hendrix thread so much that I'll repost it here, now:

    "We've discussed this "ripping off" of others' work by Page and Zep on a number of occasions. I forget the exact source and quote, but it was to the effect that mediocre artists borrow from the work of others but great artists steal outright. I hold (again) that Page et al stole the works of others and then transformed them into magical things of a different order of magnitude that brought an audience and an illumination to those works that they never would have otherwise received. To have been ripped off by Led Zeppelin will be seen to have been a rare gift indeed. I've compared it in result if not in magnitude with the wholesale ripping off that Herman Melville did in putting together Moby Dick."

    It strikes me that those who wish to include talk of morality in discussions of art are careful to titrate the exact amount and nature of their moral strictures so that they arrive at just the right balance of both praise and shivering condemnation. That one must like some works of art just enough but not too much is both the result of and the necessity for such careful titration. The Wagner threads often show this same phenomenon.

    So your saying that Wagner was like Jimmy Page and a Rip Off merchant also
