    I love Jimmy's guitar playing. Such great riffs and it sounds like it's just all going to fall apart, but it doesn't. Yeah, he's sloppy a lot of the time, but it works.

    This song is good, but a couple parts sound lifted right off a few old Atlantic records. That Levee Breaks drum effect, that little break that reminds me your time is gonna come... they're good tho. Singer has a bit of a Paul Rogers thing going on but has a better rasp.

    On the subject of sound-alikes, I always thought that in this song, Billy Squier sounds so much like Plant... especially like around the 55 second mark. Usually it's not that odd to find vocalist similarities, but for voices like Plant's, it's a rarity.

    I heard Zeppelin first from my older brother, who bought LZ IV in the mid-70's. I had just started playing guitar and as soon as I heard them I realized they were my band.

    Even though it is forbidden, I've somehow learned to play Stairway all the way through and most of the solo. I didn't set out to do it but every now and then (over 40 years) I've played bits and pieces of it or discovered how they work. Surprisingly one day it came on the radio and I had my guitar in my hands so I decide to play along and low and behold I played it from start to finish and nailed about 2/3 of the solo. Of course I was playing a Telecaster throughout. Surprised the heck out of me that I knew all of the parts.

    I've played Ramble On, Dazed & Confused, What Is and What Should Never Be, and Good Times / Bad Times with a few bands. I've jammed The Ocean & Immigrant Song but I'd love to play a few others in a band setting: Ten Years Gone, Over the Hills and Far Away, Bring it on Home, The Levy Breaks, The Rain Song, Since I've been Loving You, Out on the Tiles, In the Light, Fool in the Rain and Misty Mountain Hop!

    So much great material!

    EDIT: I'd also want to play Song Remains the Same in a band setting. I can't get enough of the introduction and solo. Always blows my mind!

    I love these guy's. I can hear some LZ, Free, Door's and old Aerosmith influence in their songs. Awesome band.

    Page mostly sucked live. Zep / page were studio cats, mainly. Nice music if you dig plant squeals. Bonham is the most overrated drummer ever, then again the band shone in the studio and got a cool drums sound to cover Bonham sloppiness.

    They are famous for a plagiarized song, and another satanist anthem called kashmir

    In my humble opinion, ditch Zep and dig the Real Deal = DEEP PURPLE



    It's almost a joke, ok? Almost

    Not much more one can add to mostly everything stated here. Zep were simply the jizz - and Page is my all time favourite guitarist.

    I hadn't seen this one either. That is a killer video.

    I've always been blown away at the chemistry these guys had together. I've been in a few power trios and 3 + vocalist bands; being the one guitar gives you a lot of freedom but when it comes to the solo, you really have to bring it. Man, that arrangement was super tight and Jimmy's guitar was loud and articulate. Awesome!

    Check out their acoustic stuff. Some of Page's best work is what he's done on acoustic. None of it sucks.
