    The only thing I don’t like about LZ is all the lyrics, riffs and melodies they copied and didn’t give credit to on their albums, leading to several justifiable lawsuits.

    In the spirit (pardon the pun about their (Spirit ) recent loss in court over Starways opening riff) of fairness..

    Back on topic, an interesting cover..

    I like how the lead violinist has a Z shaved into the audience facing side of his head.

  • I tried to make out what was above it, was hoping for LED but I think that's a stretch.

    Cleared this thread out a bit folks there was a bit of off topic posting in here. At the end of it this thread was started to compare two songs and appreciate Led Zeppelin, if you want to discuss whether they are overrated or not then create a separate thread.

    It's interesting to note, in the video of Beck at Ronnie Scotts, near the end Eric Clapton joins Jeff and he sings the blues song "You need love" which later was covered by Zepplin as "Whole Lotta Love". Kinda cheeky as Robert Plant, and Jimmy Page were in the audience, along with Brian May and John Bon Jovi :)

    Side note, Beck is 75 now, and not slowing down much either. There is hope for us old guys I guess lol

  • So many great Zeppelin tunes.... When the levee breaks is my personal favourite but they're all golden. Second half of Stairway to heaven is a worthwhile mention, you mostly hear the acoustic first half over and over in various settings. Sometimes it's like the world forgot how good the song is in entirety.

    Zeppelin is right up there with Sabbath and Hendrix. Beyond legendary.
  • Kinda "off topic" but if you haven't heard these guys check'em out.
