The trust of the deceased Randy California, guitarist of the 1960s band Spirit, is suing Led Zeppelin after claiming the group ripped off the Spirit song “Taurus” for the opening of “Stairway to Heaven.”
One of the hardest rocking bands in history, Led Zeppelin crafted epic songs of grace and fury influenced by the American blues tradition. This documentary chronicles the band’s history from their 1968 formation to their reign as 1970s hard-rock giants, through rare photographs, archival footage and interviews with the band and those who were close to them: managers, sound engineers, groupies and fellow rockers.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have been nominated for a Golden Globe for their work on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo soundtrack. Here’s their take on Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” featuring the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O and a creepy clip cut by film director David Fincher.

Robert Plant will reunite with Band of Joy which was his band before he joined Led Zeppelin
