Subject: RE: Santana - The Grammy & Plagiarism???
Gord first heard Michael Masser's song "The Greatest Love Of All" sung by Whitney Houston on his gym's sound system and noticed that 24 bars of the song were identical to his song "If You Could Read My Mind".
He started to go after Masser legally, but realised that it might affect Whitney Houston's career negatively, and it was Masser he was pissed at, not Whitney, so he dropped the suit.
