Moon loves the idea, but jokes they'd go like a 'lead zeppelin'. Two years later, as Page is searching for a band's name, he recalls Moon's comment. Running it past Grant, the menager smiles and nods his approval. Later, Grant will suggest they spell it Led Zeppelin so there can be no confusion as to it's pronunciation.
But above all, Page was able to manipulate the sound of his own guitar so that it changed colors and hues like some blues-rock chameleon. That was the beauty of Led Zeppelin, I guess. Some nights I'd try and sing things just to see if anybody knew the chords. It was a kind of encyclopaedia, like - I know the song, that's an old Larry Williams B-side, do you?
I used to stand with cigarette at the side of the stage and think: My goodness me, this is remarkable. It was the tranquility of the place that set the tone of the album. Obviously, we weren't crashing away at watt Marshall stacks. Having played acoustic and being interested in classical guitar, anyway, being in a cottage without electricity, it was acoustic guitar time.
It didn't occur to us not to include it on the album because it was relative to the changes within the band. We didn't expect we'd get trashed in the media for doing it. We all met in this country house in Hampshire called Headley Grange.
They've come from the Welsh mountains with this chord sequence, guitar intro and, I think, a verse, parhaps maybe more. Literally I first heard it in front of the roaring fire in the country house.
It was just like you could imagine it. I picked up the recorder and started the rundown riff that sort of of gave it the intro. I moved on to piano and we moved on to the next section and thus put it together section by section.
Then dubbed up the 'guitar army', as Page used to call it. We knew what we had, and we kept improving all the time. Also, we were playing all the music live and people were responding to what we were doing. That is the ultimate test. It did not really start bothering me until after the third album. After all we had accomplished the press was still calling us a hype. So that is why the fourth album was untitled.
It was a meaningless protest really, but we wanted to prove that people were not buying us for the name. When we were up at Headley Grange recording Physical Graffiti, Ian Stewart [the Rolling Stones' unofficial keyboard player] came by and we started to jam. So what happens? They tried to sue us for all of the song! We had to say bugger off.
I always made sure to come up with some variation. In fact, I think in most cases, you would never know what the original source could be. Maybe not in every case -- but in most cases.

So most of the comparisons rest on the lyrics. And Robert was supposed to change the lyrics, and he didn't always do that -- which is what brought on most of the grief. They couldn't get us on the guitar parts of the music, but they nailed us on the lyrics. We did, however, take some liberties, I must say [laughs].
But never mind; we did try to do the right thing. They are without a doubt my favourite band of all time. I studied Led Zeppelin! They seem like a family, they feel like a family that had been around for a long time. Kretzschmar, Jr. Allmusic Atlantic Records. Rolling Stone. Issue January 17 In the Beginning. Rod Yates.
