Led Zeppelin is the most well known band in rock and roll history. Millions upon millions of records sold. They are considered royalty in the music world. I decided that I shouldn’t read books or articles about my past music idols. I’m made aware that often they have no compass and treat the people around them like dirt. The Who, Jim Morrison, and Led Zeppelin are not very nice people. Their music is amazing, but decent folk? Not so much. I’ve also found that Led Zeppelin plagiarized many of their songs. The first album has two original songs, while the rest were slightly modified existing songs or stolen outright. The original artists usually weren’t credited. My idols have fallen.
The two clips below offer the best illustration of these “lifted” tracks.
