Zeppelin would approve!
We’ve all seen some pretty damn good covers of Led Zeppelin. When it comes to covering classic rock music, they’re kind of the go-to band for everyone. Every aspect of their band is challenging, from the vocals, all the way down to the guitar.
One band that has been carrying on the legacy of Led Zeppelin, is Australian band Wolfmother. Wolfmother have been around since the early-mid 2000’s and have drawn comparisons to bands like Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. In this video, you can see the Australian trio take the stage at the UK Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame and pay tribute to the legendary group with an amazing performance of “Communication Breakdown.”
Fun Fact:This song became an anthem for frustrated youth. It was a popular live song that Led Zeppelin usually used to either open shows or play in an encore.
Page developed the riff during the band’s first tour in Scandinavia, when they were still playing as The New Yardbirds. It was one of the first songs Jimmy Page and Robert Plant worked on together. Page said the pounding guitar riff is difficult to play because of the constant, quick downstroke with the pick. This was one of the few times Page sang a backing vocal for Led Zeppelin.
