A Brief Interrogation

Recommended Posts

Hi. I was just wondering if some of you fine folks would like to answer a few questions relating to the band. I'm doing a graphic design project on the Zep and I've got to produce a multitude of items for a mock promotional campaign, so it's here that I'm going to start some market research. I'm sort of basing the project on the Mothership compilation, only with a redesigned advertising campaign.

Thanks ever so much if you could help me out. It's only ten simple questions afterall. :)

1. How long have you been listening to Led Zeppelin?

2. What would you say is your favourite album of theirs?

3. Your favourite song(s)?

4. In terms of design, what would you say is their most powerful album sleeve?

5. What colours or colour schemes would you generally associate with the band?

6. During which period of their career would you say they were at their creative peak?

7. In general, what do you think would be the most effective means of introducing the band’s music to the younger generations?

8. Who or what made you start listening to them?

9. Apart from the obvious iconic image of the zeppelin, what do you think is the strongest form of imagery associated with the band?

10. Finally, in no more than five words, what do you love about Led Zeppelin?

Thanks everybody, I massively appreciate this.

I'm a young generation considering that Led Zeppelin existed from 1968 to 1980, but i guess that that one of the best ways would be to play more song on the radio (in Portugal you never hear any of their songs)

My dad

9. Apart from the obvious iconic image of the zeppelin, what do you think is the strongest form of imagery associated with the band?

Get them to listen to it.

8. Who or what made you start listening to them?

This is actually a weird story. I got into Zeppelin through the hysteria back in the 80's about backward masking. So I didn't know anything about Zeppelin except that they were supposed to be satanists and such and then during the weekly Sunday night dedication party on a local radio station, they played Stairway to Heaven and it was the first time I heard the song all the way through and I just happened to record it. I was hooked on Zeppelin from that point on. This summer/fall will mark 20 years of Zeppelin-mania for me. :)

9. Apart from the obvious iconic image of the zeppelin, what do you think is the strongest form of imagery associated with the band?

The amazing wall of sound, which even comes out during the softer songs.

Enduring, honest, uplifting music!

Thanks everybody, I massively appreciate this.

You're welcome.

8. Who or what made you start listening to them?

I'm glad I'm not the only one that got into Zeppelin this way. I don't feel so ridiculous now. lol

Well I guess technically I'm one of the "younger generation," and I think you should just put their music out there. If the recipient's taste in music isn't deplorable, they'll enjoy it.

8. Who or what made you start listening to them?

A lot of the musicians I listen to count them as one of their personal favorites, so I figured they couldn't be half bad. Plus I was visiting home during a break from school and really bored. There were a lot of CDs around...

9. Apart from the obvious iconic image of the zeppelin, what do you think is the strongest form of imagery associated with the band?

Robert Plant's pants :P

10. Finally, in no more than five words, what do you love about Led Zeppelin?

1. How long have you been listening to Led Zeppelin? Approximately 31 years.

2. What would you say is your favourite album of theirs? Led Zeppelin III

3. Your favourite song(s)? This is a tough one. It really depends on the day. Lately, I'm really loving the songs where I think Bonham shines: "When the Levee Breaks", "Trampled Under Foot", "Moby Dick", "Bonzo's Montreux", etc.

4. In terms of design, what would you say is their most powerful album sleeve? 1. Led Zeppelin III. 2. Untitled (IV). 3. Physical Graffiti.

5. What colours or colour schemes would you generally associate with the band? Believe it or not, brown and sepia, because of the colors on Led Zeppelin II. It was the first Zep album I bought.

7. In general, what do you think would be the most effective means of introducing the band’s music to the younger generations? Sadly, it seems these days people latch on to songs that are used in commercials. If their music was used in an iPod commercial or were featured in "Guitar Hero", people would be all over it. I hope someone has a better idea about this than me, because I would really hate to see Zeppelin go down that road. :(

Hi. I was just wondering if some of you fine folks would like to answer a few questions relating to the band. I'm doing a graphic design project on the Zep and I've got to produce a multitude of items for a mock promotional campaign, so it's here that I'm going to start some market research. I'm sort of basing the project on the Mothership compilation, only with a redesigned advertising campaign.

Thanks ever so much if you could help me out. It's only ten simple questions afterall. :)

3. Your favourite song(s)?

Immigrant Song, Black Dog, Bron-y-Aur Stomp, The Rain Song, Gallows Pole, What Is and What Should Never Be, Ramble On...just a few that first spring to mind

4. In terms of design, what would you say is their most powerful album sleeve?

Houses Of The Holy
