OK since this is a post on the first page I have decided to make it an FAQ. This is to solve all of the common and stupid questions people ask about Zeppelin so we can refer newbies to it when they ask them. If you want to add something to this PM me.



Where can I hear the backward messages on Stairway?

Jeff Milner was one of the first people to post it on the Internet her is his site:
http://jeffmilner.com/backmasking.htm

Are they real?

Well that?s a matter of opinion. In my opinion it's something unintentional and it's your mind playing ticks on you. Here is where I got that idea. This is a letter that was written to Jeff Milner: http://jeffmilner.com/?p=663.

It could be real. It could not be real. Nobody knows for sure. Nobody will probably ever know.

What's all this about Led Zeppelin being thieves?

Well, the members of Led Zeppelin were big on the blues and a lot of their most famous songs are uncredited covers or versions of old blues songs.

Some of them we are positive they 'stole" (I.E. Whole Lotta Love, Since I've been Loving You)

Some of them are similar and/or different versions of the songs (Dazed and Confused, Babe I'm gonna leave you)

Some are suspected but not positively "stolen" (Opening riff to Stairway, Black Dog song structure)

Others are original (Kashmir, No Quarter,)

Where can I here the original songs?

Here are the suspected songs:

http://www.led-zeppelin.org/multimedia/index.php?m=roots

These are just clips. Make your own judgment on whether or not they stole


I'll add more later I just thought this could be useful.

Anyway, basically, i can't post in here no more because I know it will just turn into a MASSIVE Page slamming thread for me where everyone gets annoyed at me because Page is an arse blah blah blah..........

^ I like them too. Some old blues songs though are a little too slow for me but I do like the original You Shook Me and You Need Love. They are both great songs.

BTW we ALL know Zeppelins stole lyrics. but let it be known they were deffinetly not the only band who ripped off the blues. Besides the lyrics they ripped weren't even great to begin with.

My favorite Led Zep albums are:

1. IV
2. I

On the whole "Page steals" thing,I don't think he stole that much,he just used some popular blues riffs that could be confused with other songs.

What? lol. . . Class? You mean to tell me that screwing women with sharks is now considered class? You mean to tell me that consuming alcohal and drugs by the boat-full is considered class? Say what you will about their music, which was great IMO, but they arent a classy bunch of guys :rolleyes:

And I wasnt taking a shot at the band with my intro, I was taking a shot at the members of this forum picking them for a 3rd (or maybe even 4th) thread. It has to be tiring by now.

I figure since I voted for this thread, and since Led Zeppelin is my second-favorite band (although I haven't been listening much to them recently), I should post here.

My album ranking goes like this (although it's subject to change :D):
1. Led Zeppelin
2. Physical Graffiti
3. Led Zeppelin III
4. Led Zeppelin II
5. Presence
6. Led Zeppelin IV
7. Houses of the Holy
8. In Through the Out Door
9. Coda (but that's expected, seeing as how the songs were unreleased until that point and songs are usually unreleased for a reason)

DownDark
02-20-2006, 06:09 PM
what do you guys think of the song Hey Hey What Can I Do? I think that it's a great song and shouldn't have been left only as a b-side but actually put onto the album.

KingBrendan5149
02-20-2006, 06:24 PM
altough i'm kind of disappointed that The Beatles didn't win, a Led Zep thread is definitely fine with me. definitely one of my favorite bands.

here's how i would rank their albums: 1. Led Zeppelin I
2. Led Zeppelin II
3. Physical Grafitti
4. BBC Sessions
5. How The West Was Won
6. Led Zeppelin IV
7. Led Zeppelin III
8. Houses Of The Holy
9. Presence
10. In Through The Outdoor

that was actually quite hard because i quite enjoy all of those. but yeah, Zeppelin rules.

euch... i like David Lee Roth, i didn't say i like EVH or any of the guitar solos, in fact EVH was much better for his riffs. As for screeching vocals, when you can sing like DLR, i'll give you credit.

Led Zeppelin is overdriven sludge?! what the hell do you listen to?? Remi Shand?

EDIT: i find it interesting how his name is basically Derigible, which is basically another name for the Zeppelins.


Led Zeppelin is overdriven sludge, IN MY OPINION.

anywho, i have Led Zeppelin II, IV(Zoso),HotH,and Early/Latter Days. I ordered I and III outa a BMG music catolauge, i have some money so what Zepp album should i buy next? im thinking either Physical Graffiti , but you guys boast your opinon.

02-21-2006, 04:45 PM
My favourite album would have to be III or Coda.
Somepeople misunderstand Coda and think its stuff that they recorded in their latter days. It actually wasnt its songs that were unreleased throughtout their time as a band, and it's great!
Whats your favourite concert's or bootlegs?
Mine would have to be:
-Houston, The Summit, May 21, 1977
-Royal Albert Hall, Jan 9th 70
-Toronto, Maple Leaf Garden's, Sept 4th 71
-Earl's Court, London, May 24th 75

Ok, firstly, this thread isn't just for Page. It's for the entire band. and secondly, this thread isn't for people like you to unite and bash the band. So either post something useful or stay out.



Anyways, I'd have to say Led Zepplin II is my favorite album, although in reality the first 6 are all pretty much tied as far as I'm concerned.


I wonder.....Did anyone actually enjoy Coda?

One of my favorite songs by them. It is trully well done; beautiful in every way. I don't mind that it wasn't put onto the album, since I own it as a B-Side anyways. :p:


My favorite Zep album(s) would be Zeppelin II and Physical Graffiti, but I've bitched about them enough in other posts, so I'll just leave it at that.

Anyways, Zeppelin is my favorite band (for those who haven't guessed). I think that they are one of the most talented bands ever, and though they did steal some stuff, which was wrong, I felt as though they atleast created something good out of that "stolen material" (unlike Vanilla Ice with Under Pressure). I love Zeppelin because they are very easy listening, and though their music is simple (usually composing of a main riff, bridge, verse, and solo arranged together into a song), the emotion and work that goes into it is great. Any of their albums I could listen to over and over again, and never get bored of them.

As you all may noticed the "stolen" stuff from the band was in the early days of the band and I believe that they needed something to kickstart themselves which they did because zeppelin exploded in 68-69 just when the band started.

About Jimmy stealing stuff, I really believe that EVERYONE in music EVER have stolen something from someone, at least once! The reason that Jimmy Page stealing riffs and such is being so blown up, is that he is concidered a genius, so it makes it much more "fun" to blame him for those things...

But, I understand that most of you are sick of hearing that, so I'll shut up! :D

Btw. just a little question... Which Zep album is being called their "selftitled"? Is it I or IV? As I've understood it, none of them really have a name...

lead_zeppelin
02-23-2006, 05:14 PM
^Led Zeppelin I till III are all selftitled (ok... with a roman number after it) and IV doesn't really have a title so most people call it Led Zeppelin IV

Garf72
02-23-2006, 05:15 PM
Led Zeppelin I is only called that after Led Zeppelin II and III were named in numbers ,if you get me, so is self titled. Led Zeppelin "IV" is also known as "Untiled", "Zoso" and "4 Symbols" too as they never gave it an official name when it was released.

I sort of agree with what you say. Yes, I think pretty much every musician has stolen pieces of music and such from other musicians to create their own music, but as you said, a lot of the reasons Page is so highly flamed is 1) He's considered one of the best, and people who don't share this opinion use this as reasons as to why he's not 2) He stole stuff pretty directly; usually musicians don't actually "steal" stuff, but just use other music as a high influence. Page and Plant took lyrics and music as they had been in other songs and used them in theirs.

02-23-2006, 08:27 PM
^ Well, that's all fine and dandy, but that's just a straight blues trick. In Blues music, artists would use each other's lyrics all the time. That's why no bluesmen ever filed a lawsuit against them, (as far I've heard anyway). When you listen to Muddy Waters, you'll hear some Howlin' Wolk and vice versa, so on and so on. The songs Led Zeppelin used were typically American blues standards. Musicians in the UK were eating up the blues as fast as they could get it in the late 50s and throughout the 60s, naturally they're going to do some of the same things that the players they listened to were doing, even using lyrics from other songs. It's all about the music relating to the listener in blues, Led Zeppelin picked up on this. So, who cares? There's only so many keys, so many chords and whatnot, As much as Page took, he also gave back which some of the most original music made. So, it evens out, it's not like Rap where you sample a song and just ruin it (most times anyway).

Know I'm not sure, but I think that Willie Dixon filed a law suit against them, for saying that "Bring It All Back Home" was a Page/Plant creation(on the inside of LZ II record), and supposedly copying bits of "Whole Lotta Love." Not sure though.

About stealing music, most all music is plagerized, musicians want to be like their inspirations, so they copy them as best they can.

Okay, back to Zeppelin, anyone buy the No Quarter CD? Two words, f***in' awesome!

Oh man, I love Hats Off to Roy Harper.

Yeah, it's actually a great song. The fact is that the guitar piece gets a bit repetitive and the beginning is really... odd, but it's still a nice American-bluesy song that has some pretty good lyrics.

"Gave my baby a twenty dollar bill,
If that don't get her, Sure my shot, shot, shot-gun will,
Yeah, I gave my baby a twenty dollar bill,
If that don't get that woman, I'm sure my shot-gun will."

:haha Great lyrics.

I finally got the intro and first verse of "Going To California"
Its probably my favorite Zepp song right now, besides Tangerine

I learnt it on the mandolin just there :p: The guitar part seems fairly straight forward though.

My favourite songs atm are;

Going to California
That's the Way
Tangerine
The Rain Song

..and I can't get "In the Light" out of my head.

I went through a phase a while ago were I didn't listen them but I've recently got really into them again.

Yeah, as of late, I've like, really thought about getting one. I decided I better just stick to guitar and focus more on that, though, since I play guitar in my band.

..and I can't get "In the Light" out of my head.

I went through the same thing with "In My Time of Dying". I'd pull out my iPod before and after class and just listen to it over and over.

Also, those accoustic songs you mentioned; all are awesome. My favorite accoustic work by Zeppelin would either be Babe I'm Gonna Leave You or Ten Years Gone (which, as you know, is some accoustic guitar, some electric guitar).

I had started to learn that song recently. I haven't learned any of it as of late because I've been working on some Allman Brothers songs too. I'll probably start back up on it again and pick up where I left off soon. Definetly a great song, as you have mention; the chorus is so heavy.

They "stuck out" because they were prolly the most talented musicians who ever played together, and without them ALL and I mean ALL rock/metal bands that came after them would have been different........not to mention all of the guitar heroes that say that they prolly wouldnt have even picked up a guitar if it wasnt for them...they stuck out because they defined "virtuosity" and took it up a level.

Well, Page has or had a definite interest in Crowely to say the least. Page himself was no devil worshipper or anything, but he was most certainly a student of magic, or "magick" as both Page and Crowely would say. However I think once Led Zep ended and he got clean, he basically grew out of it. Now he doesn't even like to talk about it in interviews. As for him inspiring Ozzy's Mr. Crowley, I don't think there was a direct connection. Page was certainly not the only British rock musician that was into Crowely at the time.

i'd start w/ Led Zeppelin I and just go in chronological order upward. that's what i would do. Led Zeppelin I through Physical Graffiti are all excellent albums so you won't go wrong with any of those. Presence is pretty good (but not excellent) and I was never really a fan of In Through the Outdoor. BBC Sessions and How the West Was Won are also amazing as well.

i hope that helps a little.

Most people, for some reason or other, don't like Presence and/or In Through the Outdoor. I, however, like both, but I see the reasons people don't like these albums. I'll recommend them to you, but you should definetly see if you like them by listening to samples or burrowing a friend's CD if they own it.

If anything, if you like the Zep's sound, you'll be a bigger fan of Presene than In Through the Outdoor, which has John Paul Jones (their bassist) emphasizing his keyboard work more than his basswork. While I do enjoy the album, I'll admit it's not my favorite by them.

They are the biggest selling hard rock band of all time, hype my ass. Their albums are selling better than most current artists. Hell, when How the West Was Won came out in '03 it hit number 1.

At one time or another, each Led Zep album has been my favorite since I became a fan 25 years ago. Someone asked if anyone "enjoyed" Coda; damn right I did. Alright, so the songs lack, but it was new Led Zep at the time. "Poor Tom" and a few of those other songs struck a chord, and still do. The great thing about this band is that once you've gotten a taste for all their well-known songs that everybody mentions, you can start mining the not so well known songs and like those as much. I'm talking about songs like "Carouselambra" or "I'm Gonna Crawl", "Custard Pie", "In the Light", and a dozen others . In other words, Led Zep is a band that keeps on giving. (Yeah, I know they were a band that kept on "taking" too, thats less important to me).

Most kids were putting on rap and **** like that. I have a shuffle and i finally got Zeppelin on it the night before, i went up there, put on Black Dog, The Immigrant song, among others. It kicked ass. Then this stupid girl wanted to put on some **** from a disney movie, my teacher didnt want a fight, and said one more song for me. Now looking back, i should have put on Achilles Last Stand, that would have pissed her off so much. I had to stand next to my iPod and gaurd it for fear of someone not understanding the greatness. Then my science teacher thanked me for a pleasent change in the music. He's an old hippie.

That must've been a different post, then. Ten Years Gone is probably my favorite song off of Physical Graffiti after In My Time of Dying. It's absolutely beautiful, and one of those few songs that gets me quite emotional. The music is great, and I think that this song is where Plant had one of (if not his best) lyrical writings. The story behind the song is almost unreal; as if it's something from a movie.

You know in my long rant about the crap that comes out these days, I never said that people should only listen to classic rock. If thats all you do listen to then I am sad for you. Personally I like the jazz stylings of Dave Holland as well the genius that is Beethoven. I just commented on the fact that in the past twenty years bands like Led Zeppelin and the Beatles have become extinct. In the industry of today the hottest act around is only actually hot for maybe a year. Look at the horror that was the Spice Girls, biggest thing ever right. And we all can see that that was music that could stand the test of time. Wrong. Today music is a business of fakery just selling artists who actually have no talent and just making them look the part. I can't remember who said it, but "No matter how much lipstick you put on a pig it is still a pig." I'm not saying that everyone needs to like the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, all I am saying is like MUSIC!! Rap is not music, it is a ****ty form of beat poetry, minus talent. I am also not saying all modern music sucks. People like Beck and the White Stripes are at least trying to do things inventively instead of just hardly bashing out two different chords throughout a song, cough, Green Day, cough. The moral of this terribley boring rant, it is okay to like any kind of music you wish, just make sure it is music.

But anyway, why is it that when people mention great Zep songs The Rain Song is almost never among them? That is probably the most beautiful song Page and Plant ever wrote together. Sure it is not Stairway, but I think it has a beauty that STH lacks. God the mellotron never sounded so good!

TheHeartbreaker
03-02-2006, 03:14 PM
^^You basically answered your own question: "It is not Stairway,". The Rain Song is indeed a beautiful, beautiful song, that I, much like you, believe you be mentioned among some of their greats, but musical tastes and such are different among different people. Some people prefer Zeppelin's heavier side, rather than their acoustic music, but I myself am a huge fan of either.

Also, a lot of people who aren't "big" Zeppelin fans, as in they've only heard what's on the radio, aren't likely to have heard this song before.

I agree, though, it probably is one of their best pieces of work and it is extremely beautiful.

Anyways, I guess I'll open another topic for discussion:

Why do you guys think that Stairway to Heaven is regarded as, not only Zep's best work, but as one of the greatest songs ever?

blues_rocker
03-02-2006, 03:42 PM
Because it remains entertaining over 8:02, the solo goes with the song so well, the lyrics are pretty good. I love the flute like thing in the song as well. But I don't believe it deserves all the hype it gets, although it is great.

FYI, it's not a flute, but actually a keyboard/piano. ;)

It's a common misconsemption. The first time I heard the song, I was like, "What's up with the flute?", because it does, in fact, sound a lot like a flute does.

03-02-2006, 04:31 PM
I think stairway when it came out there wasn't really anything like it. Now there are so many songs that follow that structure. Also it was a combination of a lot of the styles they had shown before but not combined together, e.g folky type intro fingerpicked acoustic then some gentle rock chords etc into a bluesy solo and then finishing off with some heavier rock. Awesome.

Yeah, I definetly agree with you. I was going to see what people posted before telling my opinion of the song, but musically, it is almost perfect. It is beautifully played, from start to finish; incredible work by all the musicians. Though Bonham only played for a couple minutes and apart from the intro, Jones was heavily overshadowed by Page, the musical level of talent and skill was incredible.

Another reason I think people like the song is because of it's lyrics. Many people still try to figure out exactly what the song is about; I even did a project on trying to "decipher" and interpret the song last year.

^^Actually, there were two parts to the project; one where you type up a report on your interpretation, and another part where you present.

When I was about to present, we had a fire drill. We were suppose to pass out a copy of the poem to the class so they could take notes on it, but because of the fire drill, I couldn't get to anyone that day.

The next day, I finished handing out copies, but for some reason she didn't see me do it.

On the presentation part, I got an 84 because I "Didn't give everyone a copy of the poem,", which I did. She's a Red Sox fan and I'm a Yankees fan, so that probably had something to do with why so many points were taken off of my grade.

I did good on the written part, tough, so, that's good. I'll tell you what I basically intepreted. I interpreted Stairway to Heaven to be a metaphor or whatever the hell those things are called about an acid trip or something. I just bull****ed most of it and just took my idea from what my friend said his uncle thought it was about. Coincidentally, I could find a lot of things that could work as "drug references" in the song.

You know Maet if you weren't such an ignorant little child maybe you'll realize that all I said was for people to like music where thought was put into it. You are a very sad young person who is extremely condescending, almost as bad as myself. You list off a jazz album like "Time Out" as if I had no idea what you were talking about. I was born before that album came out you snot-nosed little prick. I've heard it and to be honest I didn't really like it all that much. Just because its time signatures are rather complex doesn't mean I automatically like it. I respect it because it is without a doubt good music, unlike a lot of "music" today. As to you attacking me because I said buy Led Zep's untitled fourth album and be a better person I just have one thing to say to you: THIS IS THE LED ZEPPELIN FORUM YOU FATHEAD!

As to Stairway, you guys are, for the most, part right. When it first came out no one had ever heard a song like that. But I believe the reason it was and is so well recieved is because of the whole light and shade philosophy that Page had. He is quoted as saying he didn't want to be the greatest guitarist, but he wanted to affect people with his music. He expressed himself through the guitar much like Plant did with his voice and lyrics and Jones and Bonzo with their instruments. Stairway is ultimately one of the few true expressions of artists through their craft. The track builds slowly, continually adding pieces and taking you on a musical journey. Each instrument is vital to the piece as a whole and has something to say. Robert's lyrics are somewhat vague, yet remain universal. Essentially the song relays the message that redemption of the soul is never fully out of your own reach. It is an age old idea that has been seen continually through out history. Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" is actually not far removed from the subject matter of Stairway. Also the reason STH works so well is the slow build and then the oh-so cathartic release that is Jimmy's solo. If a song ever truly needed a solo it was Stairway to Heaven.

Actually the song is simply a tale about a wealthy woman who tried to throw money around to secure a spot in heaven, which is almost a complete opposite of the protaganist and story in A Christmas Carol.

ledhead73
03-04-2006, 12:11 PM
Well that is how she starts out, trying to buy her way in. Using money instead of having a good soul. The song says that if she continues on this path she won't get to heaven, hence "there's still time to change the road your on". Kind of getting off track, but that is essentially the meaning of A Christmas Carol. Scrooge thought that all he needed was money, but with the help of three spirits he had an epiphany and changed his life.

Has Anyone noticed that the song"Trampled under foot" sounds a little like "very Superstiusous"by Stevie Wonders. But that is just me.

TheHeartbreaker
03-04-2006, 09:26 PM
^^Honestly, I can't think of any similarities between the two songs, even though I haven't heard "Superstitious" for sometime now.

"Trampled Underfoot" is definetly one of my favorite Zeppelin tunes; besides the fact that the riff is quite catchy, I love all the sexual inuendos Plant uses, making the song quite humerous.

For those of you who haven't seen this song performed live, I'd recommend you find someone who owns the Zeppelin "desert" DVD, or you go out and buy or rent (if it's rentable) it yourself, because the live version of Trampled Underfoot is absolutely amazing; an extended jam with Page and Jones that is absolutley beautiful.

No one ever heard a rock song like that. That's my only real complain about your post. More emphasized by the fact that you go on about history and literature in your post aswell.

Certain classical songs far surpass Stairway on basically all levels you just mentioned, except perhaps the lyrics/vocals department where some don't contain any. Ravel's Bolero for example is of roughly the same length and contains a slow build and adding pieces and pieces to make it more complete and full. The only difference is a lack of vocals, and it goes out with a bang. Not to mention the tricky 3/8 time signature. Many of Gustav Holst's works are of similar characteristics. Suite in F for Military Band which includes March, Song Without Words My Love, Song of the Blacksmith and Fantasia on the Dargason are epic in their arrangements and mastery of rhythm and dynamics. Then theres Igor Stravinsky's Ballets such as Firebird, The Rite of Spring and The Nightingale which are long (clocking in at over 30 minutes each), and again contain masterys in most of, if not all, musical elements such as time, rhythm, dynamics etc.

I'm not arguing you, just stating that Stairway was likely the first epic rock song, but hardly the first epic song in general.

That's the one thing I don't like about Trampled Underfoot.

As far as the "why STH is popular" thing, I think a lot of it has to do with the supposed "Satanic" messages in the song and the fact that the song changes from soft to harder to a solo that people love to a soft ending. It showcases almost all of the band's skills.

TheHeartbreaker
03-05-2006, 07:22 PM
^^Honestly, I don't think that the "Satanic" messages seemed to effect the popularity of the song itself too much. I mean, a lot of songs have "Satanic" messages besides "Stairway to Heaven" - including the "Pokemon Rap".

Sometimes it's just coincidence that words played backwards sound like other words, and sometimes it's just total bull**** (which many people believe is the case with "Stairway to Heaven"), but then you've got people who are talented enough to purposefully play songs backwards and actually create words (Pink Floyd's "Empty Spaces").

I'll admit that this idea of "Satanic" messages (notice I'm constantly putting "Satanic" in parentheses, because I myself don't believe that the stuff is real) did inspire a lot more people to listen to it to try and determine if the song was in fact "Satanic", but whether or not this was ever discovered/hoaxed didn't seem to effect how great people realized this song was.

Actually, that is just your opinion on him, which is fine. I personally put Randy Rhoads, Ritchie Blackmore, Marty Friedman, and a few others way above Page on my list. But, that is my opinion.

And for your information, Derig is thelast person you want to be getting into a Page argument with. Especially if you're new here. Just thought I'd inform you of that. :)

All of the people I know like Stairway because of the structure that it has that you just specified. I mean, regardless of the popular demand for bashing the song, it's a really good song as far as I am concerned. Personally, I prefer When the Levee Breaks over STH, but it's still a good song anyway.

Henceforth, I move that we simply say Backwards Messages instead of 'Satanic Messages' because some in fact aren't satanic at all. Just suggestive.

And as for Backwards messages affecting the popularity of a song, Stairway To Heaven isn't necessarily a good example because the song's about as popular as it's ever going to be. But backwards messages on other songs, like Empty Spaces by Pink Floyd as you mentioned, do increase their popularity via causing people to go back to it, causing people to listen to it in the first place as it's a lesser known song and causing people to look into other songs by the band. But then again, there's the whole 'crap factor' where their isn't any message at all and it's just hyped up for no apparent reason, but it works none the less.

On all the live versions of Whole Lotta Love I've heard, they do play this part. Also, I don't know why you think it "ruins the song". In fact, it's almost a perfect idea. So you've got this weird, psychedelic, almost scary noise, that, when listened with stereo headphones, makes your head swirl. It's absolutely crazy.

Then, out of nowhere, Bonham has this short fill and the Jimmy starts to solo. IMO, it's perfect. Similar in a sense to what they did in Dazed and Confused, where they would play the bow section live and just **** around for a few minutes before letting Jimmy break loose.

Lol. The chorus is so ****ing heavy, it's orgasmic. My friends and I were headbanging to the chorus one day out on the street.

People gave us some really weird looks.

I've done something similar to that, but the worst time I've ever forget to turn off my iPod was when... (a bit off topic, but, whatever)...

I had this huge exam in one of my classes, and earlier that day, I had been listening to Pink Floyd. I was listening to them on the bus, so my headphones were pretty loud to hear over the people and engine. Anyways, as I was leaving the bus, I turned off the iPod, and proceeded to put it on "Hold", but somewhere in the process, must have accidentally hit the click-wheel to turn it back on.

At this point, I'm assuming it was on "Stop", because I didn't hear anything playing, and if I had, would have turned it off. After about 10 minutes into the test, I hear the sound of a radar "ping", and realize Echoes has just started playing.

The teacher heard the music once the song started up, but I was lucky that it sounded further away from me. He came over to try and find the noise, and left the room to see if it was coming from down the hall. At that time, I proceeded to pull the headphones out of the jack, and got away with it.

If he had known it was me, he wouldv'e took my iPod and either failed me for the exam or have me retake it on Friday, which was a retake day, where if you didn't have to do a retake, you had the day off.

To be honest, I think Zeppelin songs are extremely easy to play; the only hard parts possibly being the solos.

However, whats easy to some people is hard to others and so forth like that. I'd recommend you learn Heartbreaker, and after that Livin' Lovin' Maid (She's Just A Woman), so that way, it's sounds like how most radio stations play these songs together because the space between them on the album is so short.

Also, some others...

Is there any Zeppelin song with a swear word? I could swear that in the Danish TV performance of Dazed and Confused on the DVD, Plant says "send you to hell" instead of "send you the bill, but i don't know for sure.

03-13-2006, 08:02 PM

he throws in some lines about some cocaine that makes him sick (no pun intended) in dazed and confused live. it's either in the place of another verse or a new one altogether, never checked

I think Physical Graffiti is the best album.

TheHeartbreaker
03-18-2006, 08:41 PM
^^IMO, it probably is their best album. I believe I stated it before somewhere in this thread, but I beleive this album was where Zeppelin reached its climax. While Presence and In Through the Outdoor, the last two studio albums released before John Bonham died, were great, I think that Physical Graffiti trully was Zeppelin's greatest album.

The band had matured together through their previous five albums with songs of many different influences, and they put these influences together onto one double-disc album to create some of the greatest, and most unappreciated pieces of music (I mean unappreciated in the sense that most people who aren't into Zeppelin are likely to have not heard of the album) ever wriiten.

don't you mean five albums? they had I,II,III,IV, and Houses of the Holy before Physical Grafitti. sorry about being super picking, it was just bothering me. :p:

Who else thinks Ten Years Gone from Knebworth(or almost any live version) rocks!!?
I love how it's unusual that Jones is playing rythm acoustic guitar instead of bass. Adds quite a diffrent feel to the song.

TheHeartbreaker
03-19-2006, 10:58 AM
^^Yeah, it is cool how they performed that song (one of their best and one of my personal favorites, I might add) live, but Jones would have to play this guitar thing while performing it with bass pedals installed...

http://www.harpguitars.net/history/org_images/Multi-neck/JPJ's_triple_neck-sedgwick.jpg

It became sort of inconvienient, so they stopped performing this live after 1977 until they played it (I believe for the last time) at the Knebworth Festival you mentioned, which was in 1979.

Yes, it's a Telecaster and it's also fitted with a Parson's B string bender, he used that tele especially for that song, and was later used in The Firm. I believe it's his second one in Zeppelin, the first one was used in tours in early 1969 and for the first Led Zeppelin album.

Just to name another song he uses a tele in "Dazed and Confused." He used a telecaster in this song because it allowed him to bend the string behind the nut for the harmonics.........cause the tele has a bigger space between the strings and the headstock. I'm moving to Headley Grange!

I don't know if i'm including all of them but here is a list of the guitars Jimmy has owned and played with Zeppelin.

1958 Fender Telecaster-gift from Jeff Beck

Gibson "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom-stolen in 1970

1959 Les Paul Standard- His "Number 1"

1958 Les Paul Standard-Bought from The Eagles Joe Walsh in early 70s

EDS-1275 Gibson Double-Neck-used live for "Stairway to Heaven" and on the record "In Through the Outdoor"

Jimmy's black and white Danelectro-used on "Kashmire"

1971 Martin D28-used for acoustic sets and I think on "Stairway."

Just to add to that list, he had another 1973 Red Les Paul which he used rarely.
He had a lake placid blue Stratocaster which he used on stage for In The Evening.
And he used the second Telecaster (as seen in the video above) only for Ten Years Gone.

You know what's funny? How Plant grabs a tambourine during the solo and starts "playing" it just to look important during the minutes he isn't singing. This is especially obvious since a simple tambourine can't be heard over the cymbols on Bonzo's drum set or Page's playing.

Why Mr. Plant, why?

Now why the **** would you say that.
He had a feel for the music in the song and decided to go along with it by playing a tambourine, he always played it in live stairway to heaven versions. I have many bootlegs of stairway which you can hear the tambourine and it sounds great.
