April 28, 2017 – I have some well placed sources in the industry telling me that Robert Plant has agreed to reunite Led Zeppelin for Desert Trip 2017. A few days ago Plant’s official website www.robertplant.com changed to black with only this eerie message on the screen!!!
Check out two best Rock N’ Roll drummers of all-time, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin and Keith Moon of The Who wearing the same Snoopy Peanuts Sweatshirt!!!
Led Zeppelin performed two sold out shows at Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum on July 23 & 24, 1977. The show on July 23 is forever memorable for the “Nurses Do It Better” shirt Robert Plant wore on stage.
People post these mash-ups all the time, but god damn it, this The Beatles x Led Zeppelin mash-up of “Helter Skelter” & “Whole Lotta Love” by producer/mixer Soundhog is amazing.
From their early songs like “King of Rock”, to the guitar driven “Rock Box” and of course the Aerosmith collaboration “Walk This Way”, Hip-Hop legends Run-D.M.C. have always been influenced by rock music. Looks like Rock N’ Roll has also influenced the fashion of music fanatic D.M.C. He ditched the Adidas jumpsuit and sneakers for a pair of black jeans and a rock band shirt.
Every year at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the hippie inspired “Flower Crown” makes a comeback and is proudly worn all around the desert. I recently noticed a few photos making their way around the internet of Robert Plant in his Led Zeppelin glory days wearing a “Flower Crown”.
This is most likely the most famous photo of Led Zeppelin. It was taken by photographer Bob Gruen shortly after Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham exit their airplane “The Starship” in New York 1973.
The Kurt Cobain Urinal Photobomb!!! Most likely taken in 1989, this Nirvana “Bleach” era photo of Cobain taking a leak and still photobombing Jonathan Poneman (the co-founder of Sub Pop) and Matt Lukin of Mudhoney is an instant classic.
My 15 year old daughter M has been watching the TV series “Charmed” on Netflix lately and that’s when she noticed a familiar symbol in the shows “Book of Shadows”. The symbol a triquetra is better known to music fans as one of the four symbols used on the Led Zeppelin IV album.
One of my favorite Led Zeppelin era photos of Robert Plant is the famous “Golden God” photo showing Plant in 1975 looking down from the Continental Hyatt balcony to a large billboard on Sunset Boulevard advertising the Led Zeppelin album “Physical Graffiti.”
