How does anyone have the unmitigated hubris to rate this cut less than "Godlike".  Bow down, ye Mortals, and wail that you are not worthy.

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.

Courtesy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramble_On:-

There has been much doubt around Bonham's percussions in the background throughout the song, having regard to the particular resonance that it captures. There are no versions consistent in this respect: often mistaken for bongos, some said of a small plastic bin for waste played with the hands from the side of the bottom, others about the sticks on his drum kit vinyl seat pad, or even the soles of the shoes he wore during the recording session and so rhythmically beaten with his drum sticks; the book John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums reports instead of a hard case for guitar on which Bonham improvised percussion background with bare hands 

 
Any good percussionist can create, well, percussion from almost anything. I once saw a Spike Jones documentary in which Jones, a drummer by trade, rapped out an amazing percussive solo with kitchen knives (the old blunt butter type) on countertops, cabinets, assorted pots and pans, and other kitchen ephemera. Made me a believer.

The photo is a fairly well-known and documented photo of Von Richthofen's Jasta 17, the Flying Circus. That's his Albatros D.III they're posed in front of with the Red Baron hisself in the cockpit. Reputedly the photo dates from April 1917.

Page and Plant were Tolkien fans. "Ramble On", "The Battle of Evermore", "Over the Hills and Far Away", and "Misty Mountain Hop" all have references to the Lord of the Rings.

 

I was going to ask, did Robert just sing, "In the darkest days of Mordor..."? WHOA......mind blown.....I think that's the first time in all the years I've heard this song that that line made sense. Guess I'll pull the Tolkien out....got some summer reading to do!
