Led Zeppelin “Celebration Day”

Led Zeppelin Celebration Day

Led Zeppelin will release the movie of their 2007 reunion show under the title Celebration Day on DVD and as a cinema feature.

The 2hr4min production will play in selected theatres across the world on October 17 following premieres in London, New York, Los Angeles and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings will be available on September 13 via LedZeppelin.com.

Celebration Day will then go on sale in video and audio formats on November 19.

Over 20 million people applied for 18,000 tickets when Led Zeppelin announced they’d play London’s O2 Arena to celebrate the life of Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun.

Drummer John Bonham’s son Jason performed with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, leading to plans for further shows together, which then ground to a halt when frontman Plant decided not to remain involved.

The Celebration Day announcement came after Led Zeppelin spent five days teasing fans with online countdown images and teaser sound clips.

Meanwhile, the band have been named as recipients of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors. The organisation says the band “transformed the sound of rock and roll with their lyricism and innovative song structures, infusing blues into the sound of rock and roll and laying the foundation for countless rock bands.”

Jimmy Page

After the death of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham in 1980, guitarist Jimmy Page refused to even pick up a guitar for nearly nine months.

Bought the house Aleister Crowley once owned in Scotland on the Loch Ness as a retreat. Sold it to hoteliers in the 1980s.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of The Yardbirds, in 1992. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of Led Zeppelin, in 1995.

The Gibson EDS-1275 6/12-string doubleneck that he used on live performances of the classic “Stairway to Heaven“, and later on “The Song Remains the Same” and “The Rain Song“, had to be especially ordered from the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, because it had only been available in the company catalogue from 1962 to 1966.

Page also produced all of the Led Zeppelin albums, re-masters and some boxed sets.

Was originally invited to replace Eric Clapton in The Yardbirds, but refused and recommended his friend Jeff Beck. He later changed his mind and joined, replacing bassist Paul Samwell-Smith. However, when Chris Dreja switched to bass, he went back to playing guitar.

After Led Zeppelin broke up, Page would not allow anybody to sing “Stairway to Heaven” during live performances; he would instead play the song as an instrumental. He felt that no one could do the song justice except Robert Plant.

Stairway To Heaven “Backwards”

When “Stairway To Heaven” is played backwards, you can hear the phrase “oh here’s to my sweet satan..the one who’s little path would make me sad, whose power is satan..he’ll give you give you 666 there was a little toolshed where he would make us suffer, sad in the part of “if there’s a bustle…”

Here are the complete backwards lyrics, i am not sure if its true but do share if you know any thing…

Hear why its sung here, oppositioner..
 Allll
on track, all arriving
They all sing, and they are one.
Shall I loathe you now, parishoner?
Oh hear Him, Christian within me.
It stirs my sin; the river,
Oh, she swells with our lousiness.
All my life will end for him?
We’re all out of signs,
I know I’m sorta shocked
To hear The Lord,
My God now will save me!

Oh I will n’er be saved,
Because I live with Satan..
One wish today;
That you’ll all pray for
Three who will make it here late.
Pray now and you’ll see..
The ‘Lord’ turned me on,
But, oh, I was the shaggy fool..
Clothed in agony,
Lost at a height.
ohh…
There’s no escaping it,
Nor his woes..
So here’s to my Sweet Satan.
The other’s little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is fake.
He’ll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.
Ohohohoh…
“Family won’t get loose,
They’ve offered me.”
Always soothes the worker.
Always will be as we know now
“I see ruins,” said he,
“the world they offered me?
Who wished the Lord’s fall?”
If we lose feather,
Say you’ll save me!

And no wimps can bend the rules..
And no wimps can do..

Hunt next to the shore,
‘Cause they see all from there,
See here’s the news,
Who walks with mute grief!
Perhaps no-one found thee…
“Heavy, lift me out,”
Spake the Reve,
“Someday, failed, we’ll lose one line-up,
They’ve gotta leave forsaken.”

And no wimps can do..
And no wimps can do…

He, who say the lords
Thoth have our laws,
Maat must be superb. Mass is ended..
Over there,
He who should learn thee.
Any moot¹ that serves by my sworn music,
I wish it with snow be shushed,
All for my mass’s sake.
Hear why its sung,
here, oppositioner, Ohh..
He who should show
May make his show worthy,
To look, for us, odd.. sickly,
There’s one chance – take his show.
Hold thy head,
Hear why its sung here. oppositioner.
Who owns this earth built below?
Oh sweet Israel..
