Watch Jack White And Robert Plant Play Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song” At Lollapalooza Argentina

The nicest thing I've ever heard anyone say about Jack White is that he's Robert Plant and Jimmy Page if they were the same person. That gets at White's appeal, but when you sit White next to the genuine article, you see that he still has a ways to go. Over the weekend, White headlined… More »

The Week In Pop: Nick Jonas Is On The Verge Of Something Awesome

We needed the expert Miguel impersonation that is "Jealous" this year, if only because Miguel himself seems determined to tantalizingly dangle his own new music just out of reach. (These fleeting seconds were such a maddening tease! I realize this hard-to-get routine is a form of foreplay, but jeez.) Anyway: The biggest solo hit… More »

Led Zeppelin Albums From Worst To Best

Led Zeppelin is a formative experience. They're the kind of band you discover early on, that kicks open the door to a whole bunch of other things. It's hard to separate those experiences, eventually. I can't tell you the last time I listened to Nevermind or Appetite For Destruction the whole way through, and for… More »

Led Zeppelin – “Rock And Roll” Video

I love Led Zeppelin, but I'd say there's a good third of their catalog that I can't hear anymore. I don't mean I don't want to listen to it; I mean I cannot hear it -- I've heard it so much that it's just white noise, like the sounds of midtown traffic outside Stereogum's offices. More »

Hear An Alternate Mix Of Led Zeppelin’s “The Rain Song” From Houses Of The Holy Reissue

It's amazing to think that there's any sort of still-unreleased Led Zeppelin music lying around after all these years. But next month, the band will reissue two of their classics, 1971's Led Zeppelin IV and 1973's Houses Of The Holy. Both reissues include bonus tracks, and the Houses Of The Holy reissue includes an alternate… More »

Miley Cyrus – “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” (Led Zeppelin Cover)

We know that Miley Cyrus has an ear for the classics: she's covered the Smiths in concert, is apparently readying a Leonard Cohen cover, and has been working with Wayne Coyne and the Flaming Lips on their Sgt. Pepper's tribute album. Last night, she uploaded a cover of "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave… More »

Robert Plant “Disappointed And Baffled” By Jimmy Page’s Desperation For A Led Zeppelin Reunion

Back in May we heard about Jimmy Page's frustration with Robert Plant over Plant's refusal to do a Led Zeppelin reunion tour. At the time, Plant decried the highly commodified nature of reunion tours, expressing such reasonable sentiments as "I'm not part of a jukebox!" and "A tour would have been an absolute menagerie… More »

Jimmy Page Is Fed Up With Robert Plant’s Refusal To Reunite Led Zeppelin; Meanwhile, They’re Finally Getting Sued For Ripping Off Spirit On “Stairway”

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page have been exchanging barbs for a few years now since Plant walked away from the group following their 2007 reunion show at London's O2 Arena. He's been adamant about never reuniting again and recently reiterated his stance in Rolling Stone a couple of weeks ago. "A tour would have… More »

Led Zeppelin Reissuing Entire Catalog With Bonus Material, Starting With First Three Albums

Although most teenagers start with Led Zeppelin IV (aka "the one with 'Stairway'"), Led Zeppelin's first three albums -- appropriately titled Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III -- have long been essential documents for anyone with a budding interest in rock 'n' roll. They also hold up better than almost anything else… More »

Watch Obama Honor Led Zeppelin At Kennedy Center Honors

The Kennedy Center Honors, bestowed over the weekend, gave taxpayer-certified propers to a characteristically wide and divergent cast of cultural presences: Buddy Guy, Natalia Makarova, David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman, and Led Zeppelin. The three surviving members of the latter entity appeared together, though they maintained their whole not-performing thing. Instead, a bunch of younger act… More »

Let’s Stay Not Together: The 10 Best Quotes About Bands Never Reuniting

Most of us go to work every day at jobs we find redundant, collaborating with people we don't like. And, generally speaking, the pay is terrible, and the benefits are worse. Yet, we plod on. But for some estranged bandmates, not even the lure of millions in collective earnings and/or reflective hosannas from the pre… More »

The theatrical release of David Fincher's take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo looms ever closer, which explains that creeping dread you've been feeling.

“Stairway To Heaven” Turns 40

40 years ago today, Led Zeppelin released IV, the album that includes "Stairway To Heaven." This seems about right. Actually, it's always seemed about right. For the twenty-some years that "Stairway To Heaven" has existed in my consciousness, "Stairway To Heaven" has seemed to be about 40 years old. I can't imagine a reality whe… More »
