Led Zeppelin Facts, Posters, and Memorabilia

Interests Main Menu
 
Did you know? Jimmy Page formed Led Zeppelin in October 1968, after his band The Yardbirds bit the dust.

Led Zeppelin was:

  • Jimmy Page (b. James Patrick Page, 9 January 1944, Heston, Middlesex, England), guitar
  • John Paul Jones (b. John Baldwin, 3 June 1946, Sidcup, Kent, England; bass/keyboards), replaced original member Chris Dreja.
  • Robert Plant (b. 20 August 1948, West Bromwich, West Midlands, England), vocals
  • John Bonham (b. 31 May 1948, Birmingham, England, d. 25 September 1980), drums/percussion.

Many people, this author included, believe Led Zeppelin was the greatest band of all time. Listening to their music just carries you away. Their range and originality might possibly be matched by a few superstar bands (for example, the Rolling Stones), but there is something about them that sets them apart from all contenders.

Here's an interesting Zep Fact: Their iconic Stairway to Heaven (video down and to the right, lyrics way down the page) lasted 8 minutes and consistently is Number One on Top Song countdowns. Yet it was never released as a single to the public (only to radio stations for promotional purposes).

Stairway to Heaven Lyrics
 

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying the stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying the stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying the stairway to heaven.
 

Whole Lotta Love Lyrics


You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',
I'm gonna send you back to schoolin',
Way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love,

You've been learnin', baby, I've been yearnin',
All them good times, baby, baby, I've been yearnin',
Way, way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love... I'm gonna give you my love.

[Chorus]

You've been coolin', baby, I've been droolin',
All the good times I've been misusin',
Way, way down inside, I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.

[Chorus]

Way down inside... woman... You need... love.

Shake for me, girl. I wanna be your backdoor man.
Keep it coolin', baby.
