Led Zeppelin gets “Covered” by Bilge

These days the song is not remaining the same, as many contemporary pop artists from Lady GaGa to Mary J Blige are covering Led Zeppelin songs.  Recently, Mary J Bilge told  MTV News that she too is  a Led Zeppelin fan.  On Bilge’s over-seas album, Stronger With Each Tear, she did not just one, but two Led Zeppelin songs, Stairway to Heaven and Whole Lotta Love.

According to Mary J Blige, “I am a Led Zeppelin fan. I’m not going to say I’ve been to their concerts, but I’ve listened to their music since I was a child, and it’s always moved me, especially ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ and ‘Whole Lotta Love’ is just fun.”

Here’s an in studio video of Bilge recording Stairway to Heaven

We’ll just have to wait and hear how Bilge tackles these iconic Led Zeppelin songs. What do you think? Is this blasphemy or it is brilliance?

The First Led Zeppelin “The Yardbirds” Concert

Advert for first show featured on http://www.ledzeppelin.com.

It was September 7, 1968.  The location for this momentous concert was  the  Gladsaxe Teen Clubs, Egegård Skole in Denmark. Led Zeppelin’s first concert tour, but they were billed as The Yardbirds.  Even though Jimmy Page was the only “Yardbird” in the band. 

Why was this? According to Page, “We realised we were working under false pretences, the thing had gone quickly beyond where The Yardbirds had left off. We all agreed there was no point in retaining the New Yardbirds tag so when we got back from Scandinavia we decided to change the name [of the band]. It was a fresh beginning for us all.”
