You know I’m a HUGE LED ZEPPELIN fan and so I’ve wanted to do something on my all-time favourite band on this blog for sometime. So it’s kind of LED ZEPPELIN day today. There will be 5 posts in total leading us up to 5pm GMT and then normal business will resume.
I promise you IT IS GOING TO BE WORTH IT! JUST WAIT & SEE
THE SONGS DON’T REMAIN THE SAME….You might be thinking, what does he mean by that?…..Well, what I mean is that each time I listen to Led Zeppelin, their music always re-invents itself to me with each new listen. So every few years when I go on my Zeppelin spurts and listen to almost nothing but Zeppelin for weeks on end, I discover new sounds in songs I’ve listened to a 1000 times before, new meaning to lyrics and sometimes I feel the groove in a different way etc
All the signs of their TRUE GENIUS.
What I also mean by that is that covers/remixes rarely ever succeed in topping an original Zeppelin tune. Well there isn’t one. Ok, maybe save for the Dread Zeppelin one below perhaps! Maybe also the Dolly Parton or the Rod Harris cover of Stairway to Heaven, just for NOVELTY & GIMMICK value…haaaa.haaaa…Man that song doesn’t half grate me!!!
As I said, I’ve got a few goodies for you in true GENERATION BASS style.
First up, a REGGAE version of YOUR TIME IS GONNA COME from LED ZEPPELIN 1 by my favourite ZEPPELIN tribute band DREAD ZEPPELIN.
Dread Zeppelin is a cross between LED ZEPPELIN, ELVIS & BOB MARLEY! Fronted by their vocalist TORTELVIS!
I remember meeting ROBERT PLANT once in CAMDEN TOWN and he was wearing a DREAD ZEPPELIN t-shirt. No Joke! He even publicly stated that he preferred this version of Your Time to the original Led Zep version!
