Lots of people love Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' -- it isn't a beloved staple of classic rock radio for nothing -- but on Jan. 23, 1991, KLSK-FM in Albuquerque, N.M. took that love to absurd new heights.
Led Zeppelin made their North American concert debut in Denver on Dec. 26, 1968 as the first band on a three band bill that also featured Vanilla Fudge and Spirit, but as concert promoter Barry Fey recalls, it’s a milestone that almost happened in a different city.
Led Zeppelin’s decision last week to finally allow their music to be streamed on Spotify may be a financial boom to the two parties involved, but it is likely to negatively affect the bottom line of those who were covering the band’s catalog on the popular online service.
If you're anything like the staff here at Ultimate Classic Rock, you've heard Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' so many times that you feel like you know it forward and backward. But only one man truly understands the song in reverse, and his name is Jeroen Offerman.
For many diehards, Led Zeppelin were even more mind-blowing onstage than they were in the studio. With 1997's 'BBC Sessions,' that argument was strengthened considerably, as it showcased the most powerful quartet in rock music at their most playful and hard-hitting.
Back in April, we found this video of a seven-year old girl playing 'Sweet Child O' Mine' that left Slash "speechless." Now, we have a new video of a boy of the same age playing Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven.'
On Aug. 12, 1968, in a small space on Gerrard Street in the west end of London, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham played together for the very first time. The first song the band -- which would later be named Led Zeppelin -- tore into was 'The Train Kept A-Rollin',' which was a fixture in Page's previous band, the Yardbirds.
