While the world's eyes are on England for Olympics these past few days, The Picture House presented Led Zeppelin, a band that was formed in 1968 and became the leaders in heavy metal super stardom. The show included their hit songs, written by guitarist Jimmy Page, “Whole Lotta Love,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Black Dog,” Misty Mountain Hop,” “Kashmir,” “Moby Dick,” and “Stairway To Heaven.” Their million selling albums and world tours were legendary.Included will be some of the most complete and rare footage of performances of Led Zeppelin from television, concert tour films, and in the studio footage – most of which have never been seen by an audience until now. Music Archivist Bill Shelley took questions from the audience following the two hour musical experience.
Here is one of our favorites.
This band blasted its way to the top of the charts and was nicknamed “Hammer of the Gods.” With Robert Plant as their singer and resident sex symbol, they charted a lifetime’s worth of smash hit records in one decade, the 1970’s. Films shown from their earliest days as the Yardbirds, until the end of the band in 1980, were seen in performances transferred from archived 35mm, 16mm film print, and video tape. Some of the originals are over forty years old.
Here's one more for those diehard Zeppelin fans.
