Led Zeppelin on Letterman Posted on Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 at 2:49 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple Such an incredible band. JDSoCal Even better with instruments. DT Yes! Was just a kid during the LZ peak and tours, so I would LOVE to be able to catch them live (the wife too). Deocliciano Those guys are very very good musicians, even though LZ was actually mostly a ’’cover‘‘ band. Their versions are always lush compositions of their own.J. Paul Jones is a prolific composer.UK no longer produces good musicians, no for the mainstream anymore. SSteve “UK no longer produces good musicians”Into hyperbole, are we? Deocliciano British underground musicians ( from Jazz, improvisation. Metal, noise ) are the BEST there are.The mainstream ones, Brit pop mostly are not very good compared with the mainstream musicians of the 60’s until the 80’s. SSteve Ah, that makes more sense. That’s because there’s just no such thing as good mainstream music any more. SSteve And Robert Plant’s last couple projects (Band of Joy and Raising Sand) have been outstanding. leicaman This is THE band. I spent my college years listening to them with ever-growing appreciation.But their movie was bizarre. Music great, fillers just embarrassing. Glad they stuck with music as long as they did. Highway Star What the…!? Why bother with Led Zep?! They’ve always been perenial media darlings so I doesn’t surprise to see these getting airtime. Deep Purple are still kicking ass, tour the world, release new albums yet they get no recognition.
