Sitting in the car waiting for my wife to shop for yarn.

Fooling with the radio, I come across a station playing "Lunch With Led", an hour of Led Zeppelin with no commercials. I forgot just how great that band was. It's like discovering them all over.

He started playing advertising jingles when he was13. That makes his career almost 60 years!

Stairway to Heaven is one of my favorite of theirs.

I have heard Stairway to Heaven on the radio so often over the years I could puke.
Recently I decided to learn how to play it on guitar and to sing it.
Now it is like I have never heard the song before. There is so much going on in that song that it is fascinating when you try to pull it apart in order to be able to play it.
I don't read music and Jimmy's guitar work can't be written on paper, so I try to play it by ear. Slow going thus far.

This is just wrong to preface before talking about Led Zeppelin.

I don't know how I could ever have become an upstanding citizen without them. My dad used to hate when I cranked them up, I think he figured it would make me a degenerate.

A lesser known song, "Tangerine" has always been one of my favorites.

I won a chance to see them a few years ago in London - but just too pricey to fly to the UK to see them. Argh.

John Bonham's drumming is what made Led Zeppelin sound so good.
No one has come close to that since, and I don't think anybody ever will.

I had just sent in a money order for tickets( some goofy mail order deal the promoters had instituted instead of the usual waiting in line) to their Chicago show for Nov. 1980 when we got the news Bonham had died. Came oh so close to seeing them intact. One of my lifes big disappointments.

I saw them from the 7th row of Tarrant County Convention Center. We thought they were scalping us for charging $7.50 a ticket. Heck, that was 3 hours wages.
