A few years ago, in my ignorant teenage years, I thought Led Zeppelin was going to be my end-all, be-all greatest band ever favorite. The guys I got together with to play would sit around and analyze the hell out of the Led Zeppelin DVD and “How the West Was Won” when it came out. And how ignorant were we, when we couldn’t recognize that Led Zeppelin was covering Eddie Cochrane in this performance.
Recently, I’ve dug out my Eddie Cochrane collection, and while dancing to “Somethin’ Else,” I was struck dumb, suddenly overcome with the memory of the video. I haven’t seen this thing in years; it’s collecting cobwebs in my basement already!
Anyway, from their performance at the Royal Albert Hall, Led Zeppelin performing “C’mon Everybody” and “Somethin’ Else.”
