Was Led Zeppelin the greatest band ever?
Yes. Yes, they were. They walked the Earth in olden times, along with Jesus, Triceratops and progressive Democrats, and became an artistic force of some renown. And, in addition to their many hit songs, they popularized Satan and red snappers.
Few realize that most of the members of the band exist even today! John Paul Jones, their bass player, has contributed to the Foo Fighters of late. Guitarist Jimmy Page has most recently hung with equally-storied musicians Jack White and the Edge. And singer Robert Plant has extended his Zep legacy by recording a hit collaborative album with bluegrass star Allison Kraus, and by recording with his own Band Of Joy.
We're happy to report that Band Of Joy has recorded a Los Lobos song, "Angel Dance," and that it's our video this week. You're certain to be mesmerized by, if not the video, our captions to the various still frames we pulled. And--if not!--well, hell, come back again next week, and we'll do something even better!
We can, you know!
1 -- "But why have I been summoned by the League of the Preposterously Dressed?"
2 -- The Alice Cooper/They Might Be Giants alliance is off to a great start!
3 -- "C'mon, Page, open the door. I really don't think Aleister Crowley is totally gay."
4 -- "Just stop somewhere, man. Damn, I have to go-oh, oh oh oh oh ohh!"
5 -- "The traffic cone, she is not edible! No comestibles!"
6 -- "Let's see. Next, check the temperature of the grill with your fingers?"
7 -- "There is a place in France where the naked ladies dance. I'm sure of it!"
8 -- Even as a child, T pitied the fools!
9 -- "Well, I like Led Zeppelin and I'm no dummy. What's that you say?"
10 -- "You look lovely! Too bad marriage is now sanctity-free!"
11 -- "I don't care what they say, reviewing the covers of the new albums every week is thirsty work," the blogger mused.
12 -- "Bring me the head...er, the body...hell, just bring me Gummo, human!" Glurpo demanded.
