A whole lotta love
25 March 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

When Led Zeppelin performed at Live Aid in 1985, there was a lot of tension within the band and their performance on the day was lacklustre. The members seemingly blamed it on guest drummer Phil Collins.

In December 2007 the remaining members reunited at the london O2 arena as a tribute for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun who had died a year earlier. Jason Bonham replaced his father on drums.

This is the concert documentary of the one off performance attended by celebrities and ordinary mortals who were lucky enough to get the few available tickets.

The band older, greyer still give a rocking performance of some of their greatest hits. They also chat to the audience. For a rock band there is an underlying current of rhythm and blues, English folk, even world music in some of their hit songs. I rather liked the subdued version of Stairways to Heaven which has acquired a rather cheesy reputation over the years.

I have to admit I was too young when the band was at their pomp in the 1970s. I guess them not releasing any singles did not help. Ironic as one of their best known song was used as the theme tune for Top of the Pops. So I do not regard myself as a fan and not all too familiar with their back catalogue. However if you want to know a bit more about their music and just see some plain rocking this would be a good introduction.
