Zeppelin Thieves?

No doubt that Led Zeppelin are great musicians, but you should hear the evidence in a case of them “borrowing” songs from other artists and giving the originals no credit (until they were sued).

Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin

8 of 9 songs on their first album Led Zeppelin have now been credited to someone else. I know this isn’t new news, but it is still amazing when you hear the similarities.

See the whole case here.

I don’t care if they copied their grannies and didn’t give proper credit on the first album. They went on to create and perform the most spectacular, ORIGINAL, and enduring catalogue of music in rock history. Rock’s greatest band, Led Zeppelin.

at least their grandmas might have benefited from a dollar or two here or there

I’ve been listening to a lot of old blues lately and I’ve found a couple of songs that could have been lifted by Page…I’ve never heard of the Dazed and confused one…thanx for putting that to my attention. I’m sad that it was clearly lifted…but that doesn’t take away what Zep has produced. Can they give a little credit???Geez
