Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana Want to Close Wolfgang's Vault

Published: 2006-12-20
Some of the world's most legendary rockers are getting together to sue the owner of music memorabilia website Wolfgang's Vault.

The site the sells vintage concert memorabilia also streams a number of live concerts featuring artists like Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, B.B. King and many more collected by concert promoter Bill Graham.

According to Billboard, artists including Grateful Dead Productions, Carlos Santata, as well as members of Led Zepplin and the Doors are suing current owner William Sagan "claiming it was illegally offering recordings to stimulate sales of other products".

"We have never given permission for our images and material to be used in this way," Grateful Dead member Bob Weir added. "What Sagan is doing is stealing. He is stealing what is most important to us - our work, our images and our music - and is profiting from the good will of our fans."

The site is currently streaming 320 concerts for free.
