Re: Zeppelin Song Sources

Indeed, i think it depends on your viewpoint, if you like Zep you go but of course they jazzed it up, admitted their sources[albeit some a lot later than others] and anyway they're Zep and therefore must be worshipped
If you don't like Zep you shout loudly 'Wanky Rip Off Merchants, thank goodness Punk came along etcetc''.

Personally i think ELP are far more deserving of our scorn, Nutrocker credited to B Bumble & Kim Fowley without a mention of it's original composer. Pictures At An Exhibition at least gave Mussorgsky a passing mention, and as for Abaddons Bolero, time for justice to be done M'lud

ps Stairway, the intro is another pretty obvious one, why does it get played so often in guitar shops, because it's the first scale you learn.
Anyways getting a recorder on the world's No1 rock song [tm top gear industries etc] deserves double tufty points in my book
