Led Zeppelin play Since I’ve Been Loving You , truly the best rock song ever. So much emotion is crammed into those bluesy riffs, ripped from Jimmy Page’s guitar and his soul that it is hardly bearable. It’s a master class in blues guitar and Robert Plant’s wild, passionate voice and unmatchable scream equal Jimmy’s talent. Bonham’s softly padding bass pedal meshes perfectly, and John Paul Jones’ quiet melodic keyboards balance the wildness with an almost religious feel. In his unflashy way, John Paul Jones is just as much a genius as the others. Unmatchable.
The Beatles used to run on, churn out two or three boy band songs and run off, all in about 15 minutes. Led Zeppelin loved their music so much, sometimes they would play for up to three hours, so into it, the audience were mesmerised, frozen and rivetted into gently swaying subjection. Pure rock genius.
