Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
Favorite bands... Bee Gees (posted them the other day), Beach Boys, many country bands. I suppose I chose Zep because it takes me back to a time of discovery, a time that was fun, evocative - my days of rock 'n roll. Being in a dimly lit studio, trying to suffer through playing bands such as Sepultura, Slayer, and Metallica. Metal just wasn't my thing. Sifting through the old vinyl in the archives, I discovered a genre I knew nothing of, and came to have a brief affair with. A hot, dirty, passionate affair, with the likes of Robert Plant, The Eagles, Journey, the Stones, classic F-Mac, Seger, Springsteen, and more.
One of the most horrendous pet peeves of mine is a jock that segues or talks over the last hook in one of my favorite songs - the tail ending of All Of My Love when Plant wails forlornly "I get a little bit lonely.." Best part of an already amazing song, so overlooked. Sigh.
I chose Kashmir over Love because for me, it best represents the culmination of the combined talents of the group. Hope you enjoy.
