Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

The greatest favorites ever!
The greatest band ever!
The greatest guitar player ever!

I can go on for ever..

They were formed back in 1968, they did 9 studio albums between 1969 - 1982

This tune Stairway To Heaven, featured Jimmy on double-necked guitar,
which gives him a twelve string and six string sound on the same instrument.
An excellent ballad.

Stairway To Heaven first took shape in December 1970,
as Zeppelin were limbering up for their fourth album.
Jimmy Page was tinkering with the riff by the fire at Headley Grange,
a big Victorian mansion in Hampshire that the band had hired for rehearsal,
when Robert Plant suddenly plucked the lyrics out of the air.
"I was holding a pencil and paper," Plant later recalled, "all of a sudden my hand was writing out the words…
I just sat there and looked at them,
and almost leapt out of my seat!

Did u guys know that as of January 7, 1991,
"Led Zeppelin IV" had been certified platinum times
ten (ten million copies sold).

Ah well lets hear and see this great band and this great song!

Hugs, Thetania
