A Tribute to Led Zeppelin: Today is the 40th anniversary of ‘Stairway To Heaven’

I know I’m showing my age, but who gives a damn! I think this song is a classic … I was 23 when it came out…

Ya gotta love it!

Here we are forty years later since the British rock juggernaut Led Zeppelin released their magnum opus, "Led Zeppelin IV."

Rife with flourishes of haunting folk, gritty blues and rafter-shaking rock of the heaviest order, "IV" swiftly became the band's defining album, largely thanks to the epic 8 minutes and 2 seconds of the fourth song on the LP, "Stairway to Heaven." Rock music hasn't been the same since.
