“Babe i’m gonna leave you”, Led Zeppelin live at the Danmarks Radio Studios. The tv performance aired #onthisday in 1969. -
This popular folk song is about a guy who is letting his lady know that he's about to "Ramble On" and leave her.
The song was written by an American singer named Anne Bredon around 1959 and recorded by Joan Baez, who released it on her 1962 live album In Concert. Baez came across the song when she played a show at Oberlin College and a student named Janet Smith played it for her. Smith heard the song from Bredon when they were both attending University of California, Berkeley.
When Baez' album was issued, "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" was listed as "traditional," as she didn't know who wrote it. This was corrected in later pressings, but Jimmy Page had a copy without the credit, so he assumed it was a traditional song and it was credited on the album as "Traditional, arranged by Jimmy Page." Remarkably, about two decades went by before the credit was corrected. Bredon and Smith didn't listen to Led Zeppelin, so it wasn't until Smith heard her son listening to the song that she noticed it and contacted Bredon. An arrangement was worked out to compensate Bredon, and the song credits were changed to list Page, Robert Plant and Bredon as composers.
“Dazed and confused”, Led Zeppelin at the “supershow” in London (March 1969) -
At live shows, Page played this using a violin bow on his guitar. He claimed that he got the idea from a session violinist he worked with who suggested it (the violinist was the father of actor David McCallum from The Man From U.N.C.L.E.). Eddie Phillips of the UK band The Creation guitarist pioneered the use of the violin bow on guitar strings, predating Page doing it in The Yardbirds by two years. You can hear it on the Creation song "Makin' Time." The secret to this technique: Put rosin on the bow, and the rosin sticks to the string and makes it vibrate. -
The other songs where Page used the bow were "In The Light" and "How Many More Times." The first identifiable use of the cello bow on a Jimmy Page guitar was on a Yardbirds B-side called "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor." Speaking in the subject, Page said, "When I use violin bow on guitar, it's not just a gimmick as people think, It's because some great sounds come out. You can employ legitimate bowing techniques and gain new scope and depth."

Though he rarely sang and rarely spoke to the audience, his wizardly clothes identified him as Zeppelin's star performer as much as his guitar playing.
"Es una pena que haya gente tirando mala energía", dice Josh Kiszka, el cantante de #GretaVanFleet sobre los críticos que los acusan de parecerse demasiado a #LedZeppelin . En menos de dos años, la banda -que se presentará en el #LollaAr 2019- pasó de tocar en clubes a llenar teatros de 5.000 butacas, demostrando que todavía hay público para los riffs de guitarra.

Spotted this 1949 Ford F1 Pickup Truck, while listening to “Stairway to Heaven”, and driving the backroads near Yarnell, Arizona. Music and driving the backroads of America is simply “the best.” So the next time you’re driving, what song will you play? .
