Led Zeppelin Streaming Alternate Stairway To Heaven

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin are premiering an unreleased version of "Stairway To Heaven" as a preview of the upcoming expanded reissue of their 1971 release, "Led Zeppelin IV", due on October 28. "The Sunset Sound mix of 'Stairway to Heaven' was actually mixed at Sunset Sound in L.A. in advance of the version that everybody knows," says Jimmy Page. "I think it's a really good embodiment of everything that's on there. It's a guitar mix, really." Released in November 1971, the album - which is officially untitled - defined the sound of rock music for a generation with ubiquitous anthems such as "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Black Dog" and "When The Levee Breaks". The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1999, has been certified 23x platinum by the RIAA. The "Led Zeppelin IV" deluxe edition includes unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "Four Sticks", mixes of "The Battle Of Evermore" and "Going To California" heavy with guitar and mandolin, and the fabled, alternate version "Stairway To Heaven", mixed at the Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles which lets fans hear one of the most revered songs of all time as they have never heard it before.

Peter Gabriel Working On 'Happy' New Music

(Classic Rock) Peter Gabriel says he is working on a clutch of "organic dance" tracks for his next album. The former Genesis man has not released an album of original material since 2002's Up and has tentatively called the follow-up I/O, although no release date has been revealed. He says he tends to wrote "moody" songs and wants to move away from that mould on his next record. Gabriel tells Rolling Stone: "I'm trying to do some happy stuff. Even now. Because it's very easy for me to fall into some moody stuff. "I wanna do something that's more dance-y, and more like an organic dance record. I've got a couple of songs I've been working on the last two weeks that I think are beginning to go in that direction. "I'm a self-conscious dancer publicly. But privately I really enjoy it. You know I was a drummer originally and I love grooves, I love rhythm. My kids would tell me I'm not quite good, but I am enthusiastic."

Paul McCartney Reveals Song Featuring Led Zeppelin's John Bonham

(Radio.com) It was old meets new as music legend Paul McCartney debuted a never-before-heard old song featuring late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham in the most modern of ways: during a Twitter Q&A. The track, "Beware of Love," was originally featured on the 1975 Wings album, Wings at the Speed of Sound, but not in the form debuted by McCartney. In this newly released version, percussion duties are handled by none other than John Bonham, a fellow musical master that is best known as the long-time drummer of Led Zeppelin before his untimely death in 1980. Bonham's presence on the song, despite being relegated to his normal role as drummer, can be felt throughout, especially during the particularly memorable bridge.

Led Zeppelin Lose 1st Battle In Stairway To Heaven Fight

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin's first challenge to dismiss a lawsuit over allegations they plagiarised portions of their iconic 1971 anthem, "Stairway To Heaven", from a song by the group Spirit has been denied by a Pennsylvania judge. Last month, the band challenged jurisdiction in the case, writing "The individual defendants are British citizens residing in England, own no property in Pennsylvania and have no contacts with Pennsylvania, let alone ties sufficient to render them essentially at home here." According to The Hollywood Reporter, in response, the plaintiff amended the lawsuit with some emphasis on why a Pennsylvania judge should oversee the case: "Defendants are subject to specific jurisdiction in this district because they make millions of dollars from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by directly targeting this district for the exploitation of 'Stairway to Heaven' through CD sales, digital downloading, radio and television play, advertising, marketing, concert performances, other performances, licensing, and otherwise targeting resident individuals and businesses to profit off the exploitation of 'Stairway to Heaven.'" U.S. District Court Judge Juan Sánchez has now denied the motion to dismiss or transfer without prejudice, meaning that the Zeppelin parties can still try again.
