From the day that they broke up, December 4, 1980, Led Zeppelin fans had been crying for a renunion. All through the 1980s their influence could be felt. Band's like Kingdom Come, Bonham, 80s era White Snake and several others helped to fill that void but never quite fit the bill for true Zeppelin fans. 
Then in the 1994 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant reunited for a series of shows which would be filmed by MTV and later released as the No Quarter album. 
This was a milestone in rock music. Fans finally had the spirit of Led Zeppelin back for at least a few years and in 1998 Page and Plant released an album of new material in almost 20 years called Walking into Clarksdale.

Tracks:
Heart in your hand... lonesome guitar
Most High... single...most zeppelin
Blue Train... tender ballad about robert's deceassed son 
Please Read the Letter... sounds like a b -side from Led IV... grammy song later with Alisson Krauss
Walking into Clarksdale... something for the AAA crowd
Golden Horse... Now were getting somewhere... good riff. cool "cinematic" string session ala Kasmir. although a little inconsistent with low key verses
When the world was young... slow
Burning Up... YES another rocker... still not the Immagrant Song or Whole Lotta Love... but I'll take it even though a bit mid tempo
When I was a Child... left over from one of robert's solo albums
House of Love... cool distorted drum sound... adventurous production and chord changes... but does it work?
Sons of Freedom... interesting production and choices by page... but needs more energy from Plant. most aggressive track... should have opened the album
Shinging in The Light... nice song ...maybe a left over from IV or Presence
Conclusion... would have been better as a Robert Plant album with Jimmy Page as a guest

I am just gonna go on record and say that most Christmas music by rockers completely sucks...

I don't want to hear Stevie Nicks singing "Silent Night" or Chris Cornell crooning "Ave Maria"

Rockers, who spend most of their time doing sex and drugs singing about the birth of Christ is beyond bizarre.  It's freaking creepy! 

And that is just one problem with rockers doing Christmas songs

HOWEVER, there are a very small minority of Christmas songs by rockers that are sort of ... kinda ...passible. So that's what we're gonna talk about on this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus Podcast.

Topics Discussed:

https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/

Run Run Rudolph

Rock around the Christmas Tree

Jingle Bell Rock

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Jesus Christ  (Big Star)

Oh Holy Night (Eric Cartman)/ Christmas time in Hell

Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas (I don't want to fight)

Fairytale of New York... The Pogues with Kirsty McCall

People will ALWAYS find something to complain about. Some times I think that  complaining is truly the civilized world's contribution to history.

For instance many artists have taken to social media blasting Spotify for how little it pays artists. But are they actually ripping artists off or is there more to this jpeg than meets the eye?

 

On this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus Podcast we are going to get to the bottom of the Spotify controversy and explain once and for all what is REALLY going on.
