Zeppelin, Real Music and Stuff...

Love them or hate them- for me, there's NOTHING like the songs, melodies, arrangements and general FEEL of old Led Zeppelin albums. The band bouncing off each other's energies (and drugs I'm sure) BUT certainly FEELING each moment, each note... to make songs that would go on to inspire future generations of real rock bands...forever (including this little small town song writer and cover song performer). One of my favorite albums is "houses of the holy" where you hear them at their peak (in my opinion) - drums that "sound" like NOTHING, but Zeppelin. Acoustic guitar tracks that sound like acoustic guitars. Bass guitar tracks that don't sound like Nickelback or any other over processed modern band. Vocals from Robert Plant that were more than likely recorded without much practice, rehearsal or even awareness, LOL..... no matter what- it was a SPECIAL time in the history of music and I am thankful for it reminding me that once upon a time there was this thing called "rock n roll" and.... that mythological creature called..... a BAND. You know? Those human beings that got together and wrote songs with real instruments? I love my job. I am thankful I get to cover good songs in classic rock. I am more thankful to keep writing my own new material. Thanks for listening to my random public service announcement today.
