Today is the 60th birthday of the front man for what I consider the greatest band that ever walked on the face of the earth. For me Led Zep are legends in their own right.

I was lucky enough to see Led Zep way back in 1979 at Knebworth stately home. I was 16 years old and had just discovered their music.

Heres a song for every decade of the mans life, I could easily of done 60 songs, one for each year of his life but his birthday would probably of been over by the time I finished. Here are six of their songs.

"Stairway to Heaven" is probably their most famous hit

When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.

"Dazed and Confused" for me is a better song than Stairway but most of Led Zeps songs are a mood thing as they have a wide variety of music. This contains one of my favourite lyrics.

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

Whole Lotta Love. Many Brits who are not Zep fans will remember this as the theme for Top of the Pops. The full version is an awesome track.

You've been coolin', baby, I've been droolin',
All the good times I've been misusin',
Way, way down inside, I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.

"Black Dog" One of the songs you cannot help but either nod your head or drum the steering wheel.

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.

"Kashmir" is my favourite Zep song. The music reminds me of "The Hall of the Mountain King" by Grieg. I was saddened when I heard Kashmir was the soundtrack for Godzilla yet it had been called by a different name.

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed

"Rock 'N' Roll" is one for all those people who have not tried Zep but who like there songs short.

It's been a long time since the book of love,
I can't count the tears of a life with no love.
Carry me back, carry me back,
Carry me back, baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

( With no provision, but an open face...)


Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
Stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace
Whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear

Oh, I been flying... mama, there ain't no denyin'
I've been flying, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place
Yellow desert stream
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
When movin' through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails
Across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
Along the straits of fear

Queen of light took her bow
And then she turned to go,
The prince of peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone.
Oh, dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morn - ing light.
The dark lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all.
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe,
Rest not to lock your homes.
Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all.
I hear the horses thunder
Down in the valley blow,
Im waiting for the angels of avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow.
The apples of the valley hold,
The seas of happiness,
The ground is rich from tender care,
Repay, do not forget, no, no.
Oh,-------dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morning light.
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrants face is red.
Oh the war is common cry, pick up you swords and fly.
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know.
Oh, well, the night is long, the beads of time pass slow,
Tired eyes on the sunrise, waiting for the eastern glow.
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.
Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the mornin light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back, bring it back.
At last the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.

( The Winds of Thor )


Close the door, put out the light.
No, they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through, oooh

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.
They hold no quarter.

Walking side by side with death
The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that's slow
The dogs of doom are howling more
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me and you

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.
They ask no quarter.
They hold no quarter.
They ask no quarter.

The pain, the pain without quarter.
They ask no quarter.
Yeah! Without quarter, quarter, yeah!
They need no quarter.
The dogs of doom are howling more!
I hear the dogs of doom are howling more!
