    LZ stole the opening guitar arpeggio from the band “Spirit” for whom LZ were the opening act TWO YEARS PREVIOUS!

    Look it up, listen to Spirit, think for yourself.

    “The Family That Plays Together” had amazing progressive sound, fusing several “genres” as the hipsters say today. Tragically, lead man Randy California (named by Jimi Hendrix) was invited by JH to go with him to England but RC was only 15 at the time and his parents said no can. RC drownded several years ago in a surfing accident, trying to save his son, who survived.

      That is interesting. The Spirit song was “Taurus” and the opening chords – definitely very similar. Too bad it wasn’t acknowledged in Randy’s lifetime.

      “Stairway to Heaven” is one of the most haunting songs. What Led Zeppelin did with those chords, the subsequent lyrics and arrangements made it a classic.

      I gave a listen to “The Family That Plays Together”. It reminded me of Wayne’s World and Queen, for some reason.

      Mahalo for your visit and info,
