Awesome. Quite a trip down memory lane for us children of the 60′s and 70′s. BTW, the drummer is Jason Bonham, the son of the original Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham who died in 1980.
It would be impossible to over-estimate the influence of Zeppelin on modern music. Jimmy Page is a true guitar god! Jason Bonham has played with the surviving members on several occasions, but he can’t hold a candle to his old man. John Bonham was one of a kind.
Memory lane alright, I saw them many times in Vancouver when they were doing their “Hamburg” thing. They never did this song on the “pub circuit” they played, but their big thing was doing excellent covers of Zep for the dance crowd.
BTW, they were both VERY hot chicks at the time.
I’m glad they were honored at the Kennedy Center, they deserved it.
