Harmonica Player Claims Pitbull's Song 'Timber' Ripped Him Off
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.26.2014



TMZ reports that harmonica player Lee Oskar is suing RCA, the record company responsible for the release of Pitbull and Kesha's song "Timber", because he claims that it is a rip-off of the harmonica riff on his 1978 song "San Francisco Bay". He says it's the same riff but his version is a faster tempo. He claims that the harmonica player on the song was told to copy Oskar's performance.

The song is now a big hit in the United States and Europe. Oskar is suing the record company for at least three million but is not suing Pitbull or Kesha.

You can hear both versions below. Decide for yourself:
