Chicago – The recent viral YouTube video of Heart’s “Stairway To Heaven” performance – before the surviving members of Led Zeppelin – proved once and for all that Ann and Nancy Wilson of that legendary band are good enough to make Robert Plant, and fans new and old, weep tears of joy. Numerous musical trends and band personnel have come and gone since Heart’s 1976 debut “Dreamboat Annie,” but at its cardiac core the most celebrated sister act of rock continues to beat on as strong as ever, while keeping their love alive.

Heart was the headlining act – backed by hometown hero Dennis DeYoung singing the music of Styx – at the 14th Annual Birthday Bash of the Chicago radio station “The Drive” (97.1 FM). The event took place at the Rosemont (Illinois) Theater on June 12th, 2015, and from the opening guitar scream of “Magic Man, »

‘Stairway to Heaven’ Lawsuit: Led Zeppelin Denies Copyright Claims, Cops to Being Called ‘One of the Greatest Bands in History’

Written by Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman and Mark Bomback

Directed by Robert Schwentke

USA, 2015

During the live performances of Led Zeppelin’s gravitas-laden epic, “Stairway to Heaven,” Robert Plant often asked, “Does anyone remember laughter?” Compared to Insurgent, “Stairway to Heaven” is a laugh riot. In fact, this film has the emotional intensity of androids reciting an instruction manual. There’s nothing new to see here, and it’s delivered in the most listless fashion possible. Even for a sci-fi soap opera, Insurgent feels lazy and uninspired.

While the first film in the series, Divergent, had plenty of world-building to occupy its time, Insurgent is forced to fill its running time with action and political “intrigue.” Things pick up where Divergent left off, with Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Caleb (Ansel Elgort), and Peter (Miles Teller) being dubbed enemies of the State for their treasonous exploits.
