Ever wondered what it would be like to watch Led Zeppelin... on a Zeppelin? Nope, neither did we.
But apparently, the folks at DirecTV did. To promote the band's recently released "Celebration Day" film, the company broadcast a video of Zep performing "Black Dog" from an Led screen attached to a blimp in Dallas last week, while radio station Lone Star 92.5 simultaneously played the audio of the track. Check out the video below.
In other Zeppelin news, Jimmy Page has recently been discussing the upcoming Led Zeppelin remasters that he is working on. The guitarist has stated that the time is right for reviewing the Zep albums:
"The catalog was last remastered 20 years ago. That's a long time. Everything is being transferred from analog to a higher-resolution digital format. That's one of the problems with the Zeppelin stuff. It sounds ridiculous on MP3. You can't hear what's there properly."
Page has also promised that the set will feature unreleased material including: "different versions of things, different approaches to the mixes."
The guitarist hinted that the remastered version of 1975's Physical Graffiti album may feature a work in progress version of "Kashmir":
"The classic there was When the Levee Breaks where the drums were set up in the hallway. You know what it sounded like – immense – from the recorded version. But we used the drums in the hall for a number of things, like 'Kashmir' – some with closer miking. So there were a lot of different approaches. It will be fascinating for people to witness the work in progress."
