    Led Zeppelin At The Forum Canvas Print

    Happy March 3, 2021! I hope all is well with you as we venture toward the Ides of March, the vernal equinox, then on to the full Worm Moon at the end of the month. Not that I’m superstitious or anything, but as the Kidderminster taxi driver in my forthcoming novel, Searching For Jimmy Page, proclaims to eighteen-year-old protagonist Luna Kane as she transports Luna to the cemetery where Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, aka Bonzo, was laid to rest in 1980, “They say people go barking mad on a full moon.”

    Re: Led Zeppelin At The Forum Canvas Print

    On the first day of May last year, just over one hour after submitting the final drafts of both volumes of BEATLESTUDY, I boarded a plane at the Indianapolis airport with the destination of Denver, Colorado. That flight marked the start of a lecture tour from Colorado through Kansas and Missouri. Reprising the notion from Days in the Life, it was another trip with my Dad, who picked me up at the Denver airport.

    Re: Led Zeppelin At The Forum Canvas Print

    On our long drive east, we of course listened to many hours of music. We carefully compared the mono vs. stereo versions of The Beatles' Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper. We listened to the audio book Fire and Rain by David Browne. And at one point, Dad put in The Best of Led Zeppelin. I knew of Zeppelin, of course, but I didn't know much about them. I could hum a bit of “Stairway to Heaven”, but not much more. I realized pretty quickly, however, that I knew a lot more Zeppelin than I thought I did. I'd heard “Immigrant Song” in the film Shrek, but I didn't realize at the time that it was Zeppelin. And I'd heard “Rock and Roll” frequently, but never realized that was Zeppelin, either. Same could be said about “Kashmir”. The more we listened, the more I recognized. And with BEATLESTUDY finally complete (after five years of work), I had my antennae out for something new. Might Zeppelin be next?

    Indeed, I've been painstakingly transcribing Zep songs for the last week or so, and the more I study the more I respect their musical artistry. Yet again like The Beatles, the compositional sophistication balanced with accessibility never ceases to amaze me. And so today I launch a new blog dedicated to Led Zeppelin. Just like my Beatles blog, it'll be a workshop for me to develop my ideas as I digest their catalog.
