Well, the chords of Gimme Shelter are exactly the same as in Temple Of Love and so is the guitarriff. On TOL it's playes twice as fast though.

And many, many of the songs after FALAA are re-inventions of the same sisters 'song. Which is the real reason btw why there isn't going to be a new album ever: the man has nothing new to give.


@Gimme shelter - Now exactly equal, take a guitar and try to play Temple in Gimme shelter timing and you'll see how wrong it 'll look.
Gimme Shelter it's very near to temple when you hear, but isn't when you play Wink

@Re-inventions: Arms and Still are pretty originals.
(apart from Killing Joke Songs)


Like I said, it's the same chord scheme (e-d-a if I recall correctly). And when you play GM, it's really easy to see how A.E. came up with the riff for TOL.

As a guitar player: it's a LOT easier to play GM Laughing


Temple it's E-D-A, gimme shelter it's more like...

G|-----4-4---4---------2-2---2-------2-----2-----2---2-----2-------
D|---6---------6-----4---------4-----------------------2-----2-----
A|-4-------------4-2-------------2-0---0-0---0-0---------0-----0-2-

Close, but not the same scheme Very Happy

BTW, indeed, GM it's pretty easier than GM


Nope, the chords are E-D-A in both songs.. (sorry Smile)

Then there are some Sisters songs tabbed out on the Songsterr site. I can't tell how accurate they are, but maybe it's of use to get a general idea. http://www.songsterr.com/a/wsa/sisters-of-mercy-tabs-a5087

Going back to JD, the most obvious link between the two bands (ie JD and TSOM) for those not familiar with the Mancunian Miserabilists (if that's not tautological) is that JD used to do a fairly faithful cover of Sister Ray live, a version of which can be found on the somehwat messy posthumous round-up album Still, which also features Dead Souls incidentally.

I've never noticed L.A. Rain's similarity to a particular Sisters track - their whole sound was clearly heavily influenced by the Girls, but it definitely has that Reptile House feel to it. Your post made me dig out some old RoA CDs and another of my old faves, Velveteen, sound very like the much later Sweet Child o' Mine about a minute or so in : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEN3yBWqYOU&feature=related. Imagine what a small share of the royalties of that song would be worth to phil and the lads ...

L.A. Rain did have a similar bass riff to Emma, but that wasn't a TSOM song in the first place.

I see the Velveteen link though Smile


Still not as cheeky as the B*****s though.
They practically copied Oasis* note for note

*pronounced "Oharses"

I hope Our fearless leader! got substantial royalties for that, seeing as the game only came out in 1988. "Barry Leitch"'s Wikipedia page mentions that he has worked with "goth legends Alien Sex Fiend", so any suspicion that the nearly anagramous Leitch and Eldritch might be the same person can be immediately discounted !

I guess Von was listening to a lot of Skynyrd when writing VT. It's not riff stealing as such (neither are most of the examples posted under the admittedly provocative thread title...) but compare this LS track to Something Fast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH-gnMSzmtI

Nice ones! The riff in Maiden's "Fear of the Dark" is also reminiscent of Temple (and incidentally the song came out right after the new TOL).
