Mi ero sempre chiesto come mai i Led Zeppelin fossero una delle poch(issim)e band hard-rock che riuscivo ad ascoltare con vero piacere. Ora comincio a capirlo:
Yeah, we were both huge Motown and Stax fans and general soul music fans, James Brown fans. Which is one of the reasons why I've always said that Zeppelin was one of the few bands to "swing". We actually had a groove in those days. [...] We were a groovy band. We used all our black pop music influences as a key to the rock that went over the top.
(John Paul Jones)
... anche se, certo, vedere oggi questi tre arzilli pensionati fa un po' impressione.
