21 out of 1445 (a staggering 1.4%) rated it a 1.  I wish I had the arrogance to think that 98.6% of the listeners here are wrong, while I am somehow a quality arbiter of good taste.  They must be hipper than the hipsters.

Everyone has a favorite Zeppelin song. This is mine. Love every layer of it. One of the Top Ten Songs Ever Recorded, IMO.

JC: You spoke earlier about Led Zeppelin and John Bonham. Ever see that group live?

BT: Duane’s gods had been The Yardbirds. After they disbanded, Clapton and Cream had done what they’d done, Beck had made some great records and we heard that Jimmy Page was coming with his new band. We happened to be in Boston playing at The Boston Tea Party with a week off, living in some one-room tenement with no electricity because we couldn’t afford hotel rooms or to go back to Macon. When we went to see Zeppelin on our off weekend, Duane was all excited. Out comes Page, and they start playing their stuff. But when Page pulled out that damn fiddle-bow and started beating on his guitar, Duane lost it. He just lost it. He said, “Either I’m going to leave, or go up there and kick the sh*t out of him.” So we all left .

 

 
 
Sounds like Duane had to get the hell over it. BTW, the best thing ABB ever did was get Dickie's ass outta there and picked up Warren, Derek, and Oteil.

Top 5 rock/blues bass lines of all time. John Paul Jones most under-rated and under appreciated bassist in the 60's 70's

He took Robert's girl, silly goose, not someone's in the book.

Always thought Plant should've kicked Gollum's skinny ass for that.  {#War}{#Mrgreen}

Many, many songs from this era have gotten old. For my ear everything LZ did still sounds fresh. Rock on!
