In high school in Calgary, I detested Led Zep. I particularly detested ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ that staple of every high school sock hop. I was a punk, you see.
‘Stairway to Heaven’ was a great way to dance up close with Karen Lux, however, so I kept quiet. Page and Plant made zillions. The world rolled on.
Many years later, we are learning that something was perhaps amiss. Did Led Zep truly steal the riff for their most famous song? Someone feels that they did – in respect of the unlikeliest song you could imagine – and has taken them to court over it.
Listen in, and decide for yourself, here.
In the meantime, Karen Lux, where are you now – and will you let your kids slow-dance to ‘Stairway to Heaven’?
