The Top Uses of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” in Movies or TV

Stairway to Heaven is a classic song, and it’s been used extensively in TV and movies since its release. It’s creation was a moment of inspiration that came to two of the band members, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, simply found something that worked and ran with it as much as they could. It was a difficult track since it introduced three different sections, beginning with an acoustic sound and moving into electric. According to Page and Plant it was a matter of fitting every piece together and then belting out the lyrics so that they would flow with the

Led Zeppelin Refused to Let Thor: Ragnarok Change Iconic Immigrant Song

Led Zeppelin Refused to Let Thor: Ragnarok Change Iconic Immigrant Song
Thor: Ragnarok score composer Mark Mothersbaugh reveals that Led Zeppelin would not allow the production to change their iconic Immigrant Song in the movie. The Led Zeppelin song was a huge piece of the original trailer and the pairing was almost too perfect. As it turns out, Immigrant Song was always a part of Ragnarok as director Taika Waititi used the song as the soundtrack to his sizzle reel for the project, which left a lasting impression on Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige who has since called the reel "amazing."

Ragnarok score composer Mark Mothersbaugh recently spoke about his work on the score as well as the use of the Led Zeppelin track. "Immigrant Song" worked so well in the movie that they ended up using it twice and had to reach out to songwriters Jimmy Page and Robert Plant who agreed (and got paid a lot of money) to

Adrian Edmondson webchat – your questions answered on Rik Mayall, hate mail and what's in a Peperami

The former Young One revealed who he’d like to thwack with a frying pan, his guitar battles with heavy metal legends and what he makes of today’s sitcoms

Thank you to everyone who took part.

Right, I'm off to hide in your hard drive and have a bloody good look at your internet history!

usefulmirage asks:

Will your Malvolio be sympathetic or pompous?

I keep changing him. He's not a very nice man really is he? But he is badly abused. Should you abuse nasty people? I'm playing him as the kind of puritanical bastard he is. Although one line I'm trying to inject is that he is genuinely in love with Olivia and has been all his life really because she's about half his age. I think he's been holding a candle for her for ever. So like most mean-spirited people he's to be pitied.

Watch Royal Blood's Scorching 'Lights Out' on 'Corden'

Watch Royal Blood's Scorching 'Lights Out' on 'Corden'
British hard rock duo Royal Blood unleashed a ferocious performance of "Lights Out" on The Late Late Show With James Corden. The track appears on the band's new album, How Did We Get So Dark?

Bassist-singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher built a bruising wall of sound out of just their two instruments and some cleverly triggered background vocals. Thatcher's thunderous drums served as a sturdy foundation for Kerr, who showcased his rock hero credentials on "Lights Out" with his crystalline wail, an array of monster bass riffs and a otherworldly,

Fleetwood Mac at 50: Mick Fleetwood Shares Tales of Blues and Friendship from the Iconic Band’s Early Days

Fleetwood Mac at 50: Mick Fleetwood Shares Tales of Blues and Friendship from the Iconic Band’s Early Days
For many, the story of Fleetwood Mac begins with the 1974 arrival of Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, the talented yet combustible American duo who ignited an explosive string of hits that continue to define the band. But Mick Fleetwood wants to move past those rumors. Fans of the group’s pop jewels would hardly recognize their original incarnation as one of the most respected British blues bands of the ’60s. Now the founding drummer is telling the tale of those formative years in Love That Burns: A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac, Volume One 1967–1974, a lavish new book by Genesis Publications due out Sept.

Review: Antonioni's "Blowup" (1966) Starring Vanessa Redgrave And David Hemmings; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
“A Mod Murder Mystery”

By Raymond Benson

Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blowup (it’s spelled this way in the film credits, but on theatrical posters and advertising it was called Blow-Up) was a landmark, envelope-pushing film that caused quite a stir. For one thing, it was one of the nails in the coffin of the U.S. Production Code, paving the way for the elimination of cinematic censorship and the eventual creation of the movie ratings. Its depiction of nudity, sexual attitudes, and recreational drugs crossed the line for late 1966. Nevertheless, newspaper ads got away with simply proclaiming that the picture was “Recommended for Mature Audiences,” since this was prior to the ratings themselves.

Blowup also stands as a cultural landmark in that it captures that moment of time called “Swinging London.” Everything was “mod”—music, fashion, art... even groups of youths were called “mods.” Antonioni’s film could serve as

Wonder Woman trailer supercut is better with Led Zeppelin

This week saw the release of a new trailer for DC’s Wonder Woman. In the Flickering Myth’s writers room, some of us loved it, some of us were underwhelmed. But in the wider world web, others just wanted to take it apart and put it back together again.

Enter editor Sam Ibrahim.

Following his masterful trailer for X-Men 2 in the style of the first Logan teaser, he’s pieced together a supercut of both Wonder Woman trailers released so far, using Led Zeppelin’s surprisingly apt ‘Stairway to Heaven’.

TheGrill 2016: Watch Cameron Crowe Go Behind the Scenes of Iconic Rock Photos
The final session on Monday at TheWrap’s TheGrill conference was a snap: Filmmaker Cameron Crowe discussed a handful iconic music photographs with legendary rock photographers Joel Bernstein and Neal Preston. Crowe and the two photographers gathered at the Montage Beverly Hills to discuss the ins and outs of a series of 1960s and ’70s pictures of stars like Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Page and Marvin Gaye, recapturing some of the magic that led to those fleeting flashes of serendipity. The first image they brought up was Bernstein’s shot of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury gesticulating on stage at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Newswire: The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach is being sued over a Howlin’ Wolf documentary

What could have been an impressive addition to Dan Auerbach’s Wikipedia page is probably going to wind up being a mildly depressing addition to his Wikipedia page. The Black Keys vocalist is currently being sued by the producers of a documentary about legendary blues musician Howlin’ Wolf, for which Auerbach was hired to direct and executive produce, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In a complaint filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court last week, Smokestack Lightning Inc. contends that Auerbach drove up the costs of their film and subsequently dropped out prior to its completion, refusing to pay for the additional expenses he incurred.

After being interviewed for Smokestack Lightning: The Legendary Howlin’ Wolf—along with other prominent musicians like Jimmy Page, Buddy Guy, and Bill Wyman—Auerbach was apparently offered the chance to take over creative control of the project, which was at that point in post-production. The

Sandy Pearlman R.I.P.

On Monday, July 26, famed rock producer, manager, and lyricist Sandy Pearlman died at the age of 72. His Wikipedia page says he "was the recipient of 17 gold and platinum records." He managed that despite not actually producing many bands, or even albums -- but he left a big imprint on every one he worked on.

Born in Rockaway (Queens), NY in 1943, he got a college degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook on Long Island in 1966.

A year later, still in the Stony Brook area, he recruited a band so he could have a series of science-fiction poems he'd written (the Imaginos saga, about a group secretly controlling world history) set to music and performed. He named the band Soft White Underbelly after Winston Churchill's epithet for Italy, but changed its name to Oaxaca after Soft White Underbelly got a negative review at a big concert.

The Rolling Stones in ‘C—sucker Blues’: a verité gas, gas, gas

The Rolling Stones in ‘C—sucker Blues’: a verité gas, gas, gas
There is hardly such thing as an underground movie anymore — except, perhaps, for the ones that have to go underground because they aren’t allowed to be shown. The rough, grainy, outlaw king of those is “C—sucker Blues.” Not because you can never see it, but because on the rare occasions when you can, it has acquired the aura of an unholy testament: the ultimate down and dirty peek behind the curtain of 1970s rock & roll excess. It’s the time capsule that keeps on giving because it’s still semi-buried.

In 1972, the Rolling Stones recruited photographer Robert Frank to shoot a fly-on-the-wall film of their up-and-coming U.S. tour after the release of “Exile on Main Street.” Frank had created the extraordinary cover art for “Exile,” that tawdry collage of photographs that merged the Stones in all their let-it-loose glory with an homage to the rootsy mysteries of Americana.
