off topic:

funny you mention Led Zeppelin.
I learned today that they're accused of plagiarising the intro of Stairway to Heaven from a song named Taurus from the band Spirit:

Sounds like a clear case to me.
Page is a serial plagiariser evidently. :(

The Taurus thing has been kicking around for a long time. I forget all the details that brought it to a head. Page says he only just heard it, but there are what? Three continuous phrases? (Was saving Poison Ivy.)

I think there's quite a bit of evidence Page stole plenty of stuff without giving proper credit, and the intro to stairways is one of those.

In the end, the set of good music is probably finite so repetition and similarity is inevitable, but with many of those instances, the similarity is between Page's work and work of others he is known to have interacted in some capacity and that's pretty damning.

Might have been expedient some time ago. (If that's the only other way you can phrase it. What he feels isn't really the issue. Nor his "badness". What about Percy?)

Thread needs more photos. :D

Nan Wilson could definitely play, without question. Ask any guitar player you know to play the opening to Crazy On You and see what response you get.

Loved the Runaways.

Generally agree that Page and LZ borrowed much more heavily than many realize, and they've since lost or settled some lawsuits, most of them by the estates of old blues musicians, and most from their first album, though I don't think Stairway to Heaven is a direct ripoff of Spirit. And I still think Zeppelin was an amazing band with their own sound, and plenty of original songs.

Good to see Queen Jett already posted, but the other Runaway who kept it going was Lita Ford. At 58 she is still going strong on the Monsters of Rock Cruises, and other 80s revival parties.

Here she is with Oz:
