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:

Ok, Bill... :hihi:

Many people think Stevie Nicks' Stand Back was written by Prince, but it wasn't.
What's the connection between Stand Back and Prince?

I'm guessing that he played guitar in the song... perhaps? :unsure:

He must have been part of the production of the song in some way. He was so talented he could play just about any instrument.

I found this story just now: It was the day of Nicks' wedding & she and her new husband Kim Anderson were driving North to Santa Barbara for their honeymoon when she heard "Little Red Corvette" for the first time. She wrote "Stand Back" start to finish that day, humming along to the Prince single. When she later went to record the song, she called to tell him the story. Twenty minutes later the Purple One showed up at her studio. He "walked over to the synthesizers that were set up, was absolutely brilliant for about 25 minutes and then left," she later stated: "He spoiled me for every band I've ever had because nobody can exactly recreate – not even with two piano players – what Prince did all by his little self."

Yeah thats an awesome story. Prince was ridiculously talented. Guy could sing soprano as well as normal voice.
