‘Dazed’ folksinger sues Led Zep’s Page for infringement

Led-zep TMZ has got the goods on a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles federal court by ’60s singer-songwriter Jake Holmes, who alleges — some might say “finally alleges” — that Led Zeppelin guitarist-producer-songwriter Jimmy Page infringed on his copyrighted song “Dazed and Confused.”

As any headbanger knows, Led Zep recorded a song called “Dazed and Confused” on their self-titled 1969 debut album. The song was credited to Page. According to Holmes’ suit, he copyrighted his composition “Dazed and Confused” in 1967 and renewed the copyright in 1995; the tune appeared on his 1967 album “‘The Above Ground Sound’ of Jake Holmes.”
