Check out this rare video of Page and Plant performing “Stairway to Heaven” during a visit to Japan in 1994. Following the demise of Led Zeppelin, the duo reunited in the early ‘90s for an MTV Unplugged taping and subsequent live album, No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded. After releasing Unledded to wide praise, the duo then teamed up with engineer Steve Albini for 1998’s Walking into Clarksdale, an album composed of entirely new material.
Before he wielded the hammer of the gods — and a Les Paul — as a member of mighty Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page was a Telecaster-wielding Yardbird. Today we turn our attention to Page's best guitar work with his former band. Fortunately, we don't have very far to look, since Page recorded only one album with the band — 1967's Little Games.
Jimmy Page is regarded as one of rock’s greatest guitarists, bandleaders and producers for the incredibly rich canon of music he created with the mighty Led Zeppelin. But not everything produced by the man was as crushingly heavy as Zep favorites like “Whole Lotta Love,” “Heartbreaker,” “Black Dog” and “Rock and Roll.”
"Each of the albums has been remastered but it also has a companion disc with it. Let's take, for example, Led Zeppelin III. That's remastered from analog from the original thing. I know everybody does that, but what they don't do.. I revisited all the working mixes that were done at the time."
Today — November 8 — represents a major anniversary in Led Zeppelin history. Forty-two years ago today, the band released Led Zeppelin IV, the album also known as "Four Symbols," "The Fourth Album" or "The One with 'Stairway to Heaven' on It."
A lot of anniversaries have been celebrated in 2013, but I wanted to make sure we didn't forget to mention the ARMS Charity Concerts, a series of charitable events that raised money for multiple sclerosis. The first one took place September 20, 1983, at the Royal Albert Hall in London, followed by a few subsequent shows, including three sold-out shows at San Francisco's Cow Palace on December 3.
