The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

The greatest band ever and probably the most versatile, in my opinion. Fellow fans post any LZ-related material in this thread: favorite songs, quotes, video footage, interviews, tabs, live performances, etc.

Let the fun begin...

Re: The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

I'm not a LZ-fan but as a fan of music obviously like many songs of Led Zeppelin. I've got their 13 songs on my computer playlist. My fave-song - "No quarter".

Ever heard from The Beatles? Oh wait, I forgot you Americans don't listen to soft music. Pity that's where the most successful musicians are home

Sure, they're fine. However, LZ surpass them by miles in terms of substance and style simply because each member of the band highly excels at their respective field of expertise. Their music is so multi-layered and unbelievably expressive sometimes it feels as if they could make instruments talk. Just watch the 1973 Madison Square Garden performance of Stairway To Heaven. No way The Beatles could pull off such stuff.

...how mature...!
Anyhow, there's nothing wrong with soft music, and if you do some research you'll discover LZ did produce soft-er music. Whoever classified them as SOLE Metal artists/hard-rockers hasn't the slightest clue what their talking about.

Re: The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

Quote:
Oh here's to my sweet Satan.
The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan.
He will give those with him 666.
There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.

– Most popular version of the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven played backwards
Critics of rock and roll songs (and of Led Zeppelin in particular) have alleged[15] that a backmasked message is recorded into "Stairway to Heaven." The message, which allegedly occurs during the middle section of the song ("If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now..."), is purported to contain Satanic references
The controversy originated from a prominent Baptist, who, in 1982, preached on the radio that "Stairway to Heaven" contained subliminal backward messages.[16] This theory was later primarily advanced by Michael Mills, Jacob Aranza, and Jeff Godwin, who offered detailed analyses of the hidden meanings of both the "backwards" and actual lyrics. In 1982, the Consumer Protection and Toxic Materials Committee of the California State Assembly held a hearing on backmasking in popular music, during which "Stairway to Heaven" was played backwards.[17] William Yarroll, a self-identified neuroscientist, claimed that "Stairway to Heaven," when played backward, contains a similar message: "I sing because I live with Satan. The Lord turns me off — there's no escaping it. Here's to my sweet Satan, whose power is Satan. He will give you 666. I live for Satan.[2] Other versions of the alleged message include "Here's to my sweet Satan, no other made a path. For it makes me sad. Whose power is Satan? Oh, my number, 666", and "Oh, here's to my sweet Satan. The One whose little path has made me sad. Whose power is Satan? Oh, my number, 666".[18]

Led Zeppelin has for the most part ignored such claims; for years the only comment came from Swan Song Records which issued the statement: "Our turntables only play in one direction—forwards". Zeppelin producer Eddie Kramer confirmed this, calling the allegations "totally and utterly ridiculous. Why would they want to spend so much studio time doing something so dumb?" Robert Plant expressed frustration with the accusations in an interview: "To me it's very sad, because 'Stairway to Heaven' was written with every best intention, and as far as reversing tapes and putting messages on the end, that's not my idea of making music."

An informal experiment by scientist Simon Singh suggested that listeners only hear the message after prompting

this is sooo stupid...

go on the streets and ask every person you meet if they know the beatles and led zeppelin. after you are finished count the numbers of votes for each band. i guess i know the result.

btw stairway to heaven is the only song i could name you from led zeppelin whereas i can name you a lot of songs from the beatles, elvis or michael jackson like most people in the world could do.

Believe it or not, that's one of my favs as well!

Oh, and of course "The Battle of Evermore" and "Kashmir".
Two true gems, classics, whatever.

Re: The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

Led Zeppelin is an amazing group.

The comparison to the Beatles is too difficult, imo... they are apples and oranges. Both stand at the pinnacle of their respective subset of rock.

Re: The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

LZ is indeed a grat band...Comparisons are bitter so there's no need for them. Both The Beatles and Led Zeppelin are GREAT bands.
