Check out this interesting live mashup by an eight-piece band called Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. The band, which is fronted by Arleigh Kincheloe, blended Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls On Parade" with Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" during their performance at the 2014 Mountain Jam Festival on June 7.
You have all these colors on your pallet and now you can blend them to introduce new colors and textures people have not heard before. For example, playing something like “Black Mountain Side” with a tabla drummer had never been done.
Although Robert Plant has been seemingly hesitant to play live with his former Led Zeppelin bandmates, he was happy to sing three Led Zeppelin favorites with the Sensational Space Shifters at the Pinkpop Festival this past weekend. Check it out!
Led Zeppelin and the ukulele might be an unlikely combination, but this rendition of “Kashmir” is on point! The cover is performed by Bartt Warburton and James Hill, two ukulele players hailing from Australia and Canada, respectively. Warburton and Hill not only do an excellent job of keeping the song’s groove in tact, but they nail Robert Plant’s vocal line too.
Jimmy Page & Co. — better known as Led Zeppelin — are streaming a previously unreleased instrumental track called "La La." The track will be included with the Led Zeppelin II remaster/reissue, which will be released Tuesday, June 3, along with Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin III.
Last week, Jimmy Page hosted a Led Zeppelin listening event at L'Olympia in Paris. While most of the material being debuted centered on previously unreleased material that will be included on the upcoming Led Zeppelin remasters, Page also debuted a new music video for "Whole Lotta Love" (Rough Mix with Vocal).
