Legendary Led Zeppelin musician, Robert Plant uploaded his latest Digging Deep podcast and revealed his idea about people doing Whole Lotta Love by trying to imitate them.
Here is Robert Plant’s comments about that song and the times that when someone got it wrong onstage, you had to start all over again. Alternative Nation transcribed the conversation
“I’ve actually heard other people playing it and it’s very seldom that I hear anybody play my songs. [laughs] I hear some people doing “Whole Lotta Love” and stuff but [that’s it]. So it was quite interesting when I heard it, and I thought: “Ah, and if I was singing that, I would do it like this.
It’s a song that I go to now and again and go “wow.” So seldom do I dig deep but when I do I’m quite impressed at some of the stuff [that I find]. The joy and diligence when you get to the end of a mix, if you play this track, it’s like, “wow” and with the restrictions of and so many things going on.
In those days you had to release, all the channels on the desk were running live so you had to constantly mute things or open them up and if you got it wrong you had to start all over again.”
“It was a performance all in itself.”
“Yeah, yeah, so those four AM dances around the console were splendid because we were all leaning on the cauldron.”
