Without researching, who can tell me the Led Zeppelin connection to this Rolling Stones music video? :scratch:


This shouldn't be a tough one for Zeppelin fans.

If you have your own trivial music fact, please keep 'em coming. :cool:

In Detroit, a famous musician told Glenn Frey to take his sound to California and he'll make it. In Dallas, a different famous musician gave Don Henley the same advice.

Name the two famous musicians that are tangentially responsible for the Eagles.

Same building as Physical Graffiti cover :)
Yep. :grin:
Using Google Street View, this is the apartment buildings shown on that iconic album cover and the left stoop is where Mick filmed the opening scene of his music video. :9:

Most people may not recognize that they had to edit out the entire 4th floor so the image would fit onto a square album cover.

I'll have to look that one up. I don't know the answer off the top of my head.

I'm going to guess that Bob Seger encouraged Frey to head west, and Kenny Rogers did the same for Don Henley. :unsure:

Okay next...
What was guitarist Randy Bachman most interested in learning when he visited Abbey Road Studios in London?
Since it's been over a half hour, I'll just submit this video to answer the question...

In 1981 Soft Cell covered a song that was originally recorded in 1964 by gospel and R&B singer Gloria Jones.
What was the name of the song and the name of Jones' famous husband who died tragically in 1977?
