A Brief Interrogation

Recommended Posts

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

Since about 1979/80

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

Tie between Presence & IV

Candy Store Rock & Battle Of Evermore

Presence

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

Light & shade ;)

From IV through HOTH, PG & Presence, so roughly 1971 to 1976

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

Don't mess with it. The music is its own medium and already exists in its own space. Trying to 'package' or 'market' it can only cheapen its value. When people are ready to listen to it, they will find it - folks have been finding without trouble for the 28 years since the band broke up.

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

My friend Neil Hayes, in 5th form at school. He played me Zeppelin, Hendrix & Sabbath.

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 four symbols - no contest really, is there?

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?

Since I was 13 (1973), the year Houses of the Holy was released.

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

1975 Physical Graffiti (double studio album).

I remember in the very early 80’s (long before CD’s and CD Box Sets), a local radio station did a number called “Taken It to the Streets”.

Each week, they would ask people different questions.

One week, the question was “If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one album to listen too, what would it be?”

Mine was Physical Graffiti, since it was a double album.

Double the pleasure and many, many great songs!!!

3. Your favorite song(s)?

Kashmir (my all-time favorite).

Close 2nd Are: Achilles Last Stand & Carouselambra.

Followed by:

When the Levee Breaks

Stairway to Heaven

Ten Years Gone

Over the Hills and Far Away

Since I’ve Been Loving You

Whole Lotta Love

Dazed and Confused

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

LZ ‘III’ is cool, with the turning wheel. Also, Presence with all the different pictures and the placement of the “Object”, ‘Physical Graffiti’ with the windows along with all six (6) different album covers of ‘In Through the Out Door’.

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

Black, brown, gray & white.

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

1969 (LZ- I) through 1975 (Presence). However, Joneys creative peak had just been unleashed on ‘In Through the Out Door’.

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

What is each individual’s musical taste?

Start with ‘Mothership’, since it has most of the more popular songs and spans their entire career (1969-1979).

Led Zeppelin has at least one song, which covers almost every musical spectrum imaginable!!!

Once exposed to ‘Mothership’, will lead them too Led Zeppelin’s other material.

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

Just hearing songs from the local radio stations (in 1973) and some close friends during this time.

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 ‘Led Zeppelin’ semi blocked logo and the Swan Song Record label picture.

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

“Well versed all around musically” and/or “Covering all spectrums of music”.

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

1971 but really became a fan when I heard Black Dog for the first time.

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

Never liked Coda. Not 100% partial to Zep3. But love all the rest including the live The Song Remains the Same.

3. Your favourite song(s)?

Fool in the Rain. Becasue I'm such a big fan, i think this song is very under-rated. How do you go from Whole Lotta Love to that? Unbelieveable!

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

Physical Graffitti

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

Black & Brown

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

IV through Physical Graffitti.

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

Zeppelin IV re-release with some kind of innovative high technology re-engineered sound that is easily accessible to the masses. Parents will buy it. Also gaming technology might be the way to go, or tie the two together, re-engineered sound technology tied to a game.

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

I heard Black Dog at a house party back in '1975 and from there it was over. I went from IV to II to I to III to Houses to Physical to Song etc.

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 band members on popular magazine covers and t-shirts (particularly Page and Plant) in all of their unmistakable glory which spawned a generation of '80's hair bands.

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

Their music never gets old.

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.

My buddy Robert in his wood-panelled basement in Montreal. We were 12 or 13 in 1979.

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 symbols from the 4th album.

Sounds like a great project. But some of your questions need limiting to some degree since you are asking about such a huge degree of variance (i.e. your favorite LZ song(s)). For some of us it could take forever to decide because it can be constantly changing. And you may get way more information than you need making it difficult for you to go through or judge your data (but you may also get some terrific information). This seems like an impossible task for me, but I'll give it a try just for you.

1. How long have you been listening to Led Zeppelin? 1976ish

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

3. Your favourite song(s)? In no paticular order: Custard Pie, In My Time of Dying, Kashmir, Bron-yr-aur Stomp, In the Evening, South Bound Saurez, Fool in the Rain, All My Love, D'yer Mak'er, Hangman, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman), Dazed and Confused, What is and What should Never Be. I give up, the list is too long.

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

5. What colours or colour schemes would you generally associate with the band? Blue Jean, Black, Red

6. During which period of their career would you say they were at their creative peak? 68-75

7. In general, what do you think would be the most effective means of introducing the band’s music to the younger generations? Connect it with I-Pod, I-Phone, I-Lost my mind?

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

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 Swan Song Emblem (Poppy to some)

10. Finally, in no more than five words, what do you love about Led Zeppelin? Lyrics, Music, Feelings, Fantasy, Mystery

Hope I can help!

1. How long have you been listening to Led Zeppelin? In 2003 I was 16 years old and that's when I bought my first Zeppelin CD, I'm almost 21, so that's close to 5 years now.

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

3. Your favourite song(s)? Dazed and Confused, Immigrant Song, That's The Way, Bron Y Aur Stomp, Kashmir, Black Dog, The Battle of Evermore, What Is And What Should Never Be, Night Flight

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

5. What colours or colour schemes would you generally associate with the band? brown, grey, red, white

6. During which period of their career would you say they were at their creative peak? 1970 - 1976

7. In general, what do you think would be the most effective means of introducing the band’s music to the younger generations? Unfortunately music appreciation classes are pretty much unheard of now, so I suppose just showcasing the band's work on television and playing their hits on the classic rock radio stations. The MySpaces, Facebooks, and the YouTube's all have groups or pages that pay homage to Led Zeppelin, which could spark interest in younger generations, seeing that's where they get their music from.

8. Who or what made you start listening to them? I grew up listening to my mother's collection of classic rock. Although Zeppelin wasn't something she had a huge collection of, one 70's band leads to listening to another 70's rock band and eventually I discovered I had been actually listening to Led Zeppelin my whole life unknowingly. There was a Time Life commercial and they had a half hour segment on Zeppelin's hits, and I couldn't believe it was "them" that I had been listening to and was admiring so much.

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 Hermit

10. Finally, in no more than five words, what do you love about Led Zeppelin? A rush of passion, adrenaline.

Don't know if you're still collecting responses, but it looks like fun so here goes...

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

A little over 20 years

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

JUST ONE??? Hmmm, I'll have to go with Physical Graffiti

3. Your favourite song(s)?

When the Levee Breaks, The Rover, No Quarter, Going to California, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Ramble On...

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

Led Zeppelin III AND IV

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

GREAT question: deep blue with beams of dusty light, dark red, and very bright light, which to me connote mystery/chemistry, passion, and joy...honestly I don't know how they do it, but whatever it is, they've got "IT"

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

1968-1980, Dec. 10, 2007 :D ; though since I listed PG earlier, 1974-75

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

Just put the music on with people around and watch them come closer. They can't help themselves. Internet is great, especially with Facebook, My Space, and You Tube. Torrent sites are blazing with their concerts. These are the ways people connect rapidly today, but the longevity has been and always will be because of the quality of the music, no matter the format of dissemination

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

At some point back in the day, I used to be into Def Leppard, and in wanting to know their influences (ie/ Mott the Hoople LOL), I stumbled upon Led Zeppelin, leaving poor DL in the dust. Never took to MtH. Surprisingly...

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 four symbols, the font of the band name, and the old man with the sticks on his back

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

An alchemy of the numinous + intelligence + instinct + creativity + passion

Thanks everybody, I massively appreciate this.

This is a really cool project. Thanks for letting us share our thoughts, it was a joy to do. GOOD LUCK, and let us know how things go!

Stairway To Heaven, The Rain Song, Ramble On, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, South Bound Saurez

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

In Through The Out Door. It's perfect because the bag creates the mystique of what cover will you get, showing the power and mystique of the band. The bar scene is very simple, and shows you just how it is. The band itself isn't complex. Just four guys, there to make music.

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

Navy, Black, Orange, Yellow, Red, Rich Green.

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

I don't know. I am the younger generation but I learned about it from my dad. I'd say tv, but I do NOT want Zep on tv like that.

6. During which period of their career would you say they were at their creative peak?1969-72

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

Allowing some new artist to work with them and their old stuff. Maybe someone from a different genre like the Puff Daddy Kashmir track (Come With Me) could breathe new life. Also just expose them to more than STH then they will get it.

8. Who or what made you start listening to them? My older brothers and sisters listened to them. Plus there was no escaping their Presence in The Seventies.

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 symbols. In high school kids would tag symbols all over the parks where we lived. Our cross country course even had a hill named for this Physical Graffiti. We called it Misty Mountain Hop after the symbols that were emblazoned on the abandoned building at the top.

10. Finally, in no more than five words, what do you love about Led Zeppelin? Wanton heedless, reckless abandonment Music.

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

I was born in '67 and I just remember them as always being there since early childhood. I'd have to say, almost my entire life. 40 years.

Really got into them in the late 70's though.

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

That is such a tough question. It's like picking a favorite child.

I'd have to say III and Physical Graffiti if backed against the wall.

3. Your favourite song(s)?

It would be easier just to list the 5 songs I don't like by Zep. :)

Some of my favorites:

Dazed & Confused

Kashmir

The Rain Song

Ten Years Gone

In The Light

Gallows Pole

Tangerine

Battle of Evermore

When the Levee Breaks

For Your Life

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

You mean cover right?

Physical Graffiti

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

Can't really think of any color schemes that come to mind.

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

69-76

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

Tell them to sit down, smoke a joint, and have a listen to the best music they will ever hear. :)

Seriously though, I think LZ's rep has always gotten around by word of mouth and think it's been very effective.

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

The radio

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

For me that would be the Swan Song or the 4 symbols, especially Jimmy's Zoso.

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

I could narrow it down to 2~Jimmy Page B)

but here's the other 3 words

Depth, heavy, timeless.

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

Houses of the Holy

5. What colours or colour schemes would you generally associate with the band?Various ones. Black, brown, grey and red

6. During which period of their career would you say they were at their creative peak? 1971-75

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

Years ago it would be radio, but not anymore. The internet is now the most effective way. Zep's entire catalog is on iTunes so that's a good place to start. A site like this is very good and the direction and design Sam is putting into this will make it amazing shortly

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

In the fall of 1979 for some reason I switched from listening to Top 40 hits on AM radio and went to FM. It was about the time In Through The Out Door was released and I really liked In The Evening. I loved that solo. The whole song was quite powerful. Before that I only knew STH. I liked it but never got into Zep before that. I guess I was too young. I was 15 when ITTOD was released.

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

Jimmy's Zo-so symbol, Swan Song image, Led Zeppelin logo that originally came from Houses (on an obi strip on vinyl release) and The Object from Presence

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

Their originality, light and shade

I wanted to add something to this question.

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

My son is 9 and he loves Zeppelin. Kashmir is his favorite song and many of my LZ is downloaded to his ipod.

It's timeless and my love for Zep, and love of Zep my hubby has has been handed down to our son.

Great music will never go bad.
