The Rolling Stones Talk ‘Exhibitionism’ and How Their New Album ‘Made Itself’

17 November 2016 8:11 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

“First you shock them and then they put you in a museum,” Mick Jagger once quipped. Though his 2002 knighthood likely marked the end of his days as a rock provocateur, the second half of his prophecy has now come true.

Exhibitionism — an immersive memorabilia showcase tracing the Rolling Stones’ half-century reign as the World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band — first opened in London last spring to rave reviews. This week it’s come to New York City’s Industria art space, complete with titanic twin lip logos flanking the main entrance like sensual sphinxes.

Ed Sheeran and 6 Other Musicians Who Went to Court Over Soundalike Songs

10 August 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ed Sheeran is reportedly being sued by the estate of Ed Townsend, who cowrote Marvin Gaye's 1973 hit "Let's Get It On," on the basis that Sheeran's song "Thinking Out Loud" contains similarities that verge on duplication. Sheehan, 25, is also facing a lawsuit over his song "Photograph" and its supposed "striking similarities" to another song by songwriters Martin Harrington and Tom Leonard.

Led Zeppelin Facing Trial Over 'Stairway to Heaven' Copyright Infringement Suit: Jury to Make 'Subjective Assessment'

12 April 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and Jimmy Page are about to climb the stairway to the Los Angeles courthouse. On Friday, U.S. district judge Gary Klausner ruled that while there is no evidence of a "striking similarity," Led Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven, bears enough resemblance to "Taurus" by Californian rock band Spirit for a jury to decide on a possible breach of copyright. The L.A. court must now rule whether the British rockers ripped off the opening tabs of "Taurus" for their most famous song, which Judge Klausner called "arguably the most recognizable and important segments" of the two tunes. »
