The Top 5 Near-Led Zeppelin Moments
Five live performances by at least one member of Led Zeppelin that get the Led out.
02. Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones: "Rock and Roll"
One thing the previous songs on this list lack is the distinctive, heavy bass playing of John Paul Jones. That's not the case with this one.
Throw in Jimmy Page (with yet another Les Paul) and the kick-ass drumming of Dave Grohl (Check out the spot-on drum solo at the end of the song), and you've got something that sounds quite a bit like Led Zeppelin -- at least in terms of the instruments!
Grohl sums it up nicely near the end of the video when he says, "Welcome to the greatest fucking day of my whole, entire life." I'm sure he spoke for all the random Zeppelin fans who happened to have been in the audience at London's Wembley Stadium that night in 2008.
