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?

Where have all the band names gone?

Them Crooked VulturesFor John Paul Jones, and  his band, Them Crooked Vultures, that was the question on their minds as they brainstormed band names.   According to John Paul Jones’ quote in The Wall Street Journal, “Every other name is taken,” Mr. Jones explains. “Think of a great band name and Google it, and you’ll find a French-Canadian jam band with a MySpace page.”

In The  Wall Street Journal article, “From ABBA to ZZ Top, All The Good Band Names Are Taken,” Jones explains that Them Crooked Vultures wasn’t exactly their first choice.  The article states; “Between takes in a recording studio, Mr. Jones brainstormed about names with his new band mates, including former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, then checked them online. Their first choice, Caligula, turned up at least seven acts named after the decadent Roman emperor, including a defunct techno outfit from Australia. Eventually the rockers decided on Them Crooked Vultures. The words held no special meaning.”
