Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters – Babe I’m Gonna Leave You (Live in 2015)

Next week, we’re going to see Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters at Meadow Brook. I’ve been looking forward to it for months, and I’ve spent much of that time trying to convince a few music buddies to go with me. They both finally committed last week. This video was one of the things that […]

Led Zeppelin – Over The Hills And Far Away (Live at Earl’s Court in 1975)

[Ed Note: It’s Two For Tuesday again, and this week we’re in the L’s. So this week, it’s the immortal Led Zeppelin. Is there a better band or artist in L’s? I couldn’t think of one.] “Over The Hills And Far Away” is one of those Led Zeppelin songs I learned most of the parts […]

Led Zeppelin – How Many More Times (Live in Denmark in 1969)

Robert Plant & Jimmy Page – Hey Hey What Can I Do (Live in 1995)

Led Zeppelin – Ten Years Gone (Live in 1979)

With the 40th anniversary of Physical Graffiti‘s release in the air, I’ve been listening to the album a lot. This time around, “Ten Years Gone” has really grabbed me. This show at Knebworth was the last time Led Zeppelin played “Ten Years Gone”. Jimmy’s guitar has this awesome phase or flange going, and I love it. And […]

Lenny Kravitz – Whole Lotta Love (FULL performance from Kennedy Honors Tribute)

The absolute best moment in this video clip is when the President, his arm around the resplendent First Lady, lip syncs “I wanna whole lotta love”. His head bobs to the beat, and his fingers tap out the beat on the First Lady’s shoulder. It’s a moment. And a great performance. On the Kennedy Honors […]

Heart – Stairway To Heaven (Live at Kennedy Center in 2012)

If you’re going to cover “Stairway to Heaven” with fewer than 50 musicians, you’re wasting everybody’s time. That’s part of what makes this cover by Heart, Jason Bonham and a host of others so fun. They start out small, but by the end of the song, there must be 100 or so people on the […]
