Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written - BBC News
This is just moving in so many ways. I have the actual album, vinyl. Hearing it like this takes me back to my childhood. Everything Zeppelin did was amazing to me as a child. I actually picked up guitar because I wanted to be Jimmy Page. The damn thing was bigger than I was. It's a moving and humbling experience some forty years later to see Jimmy Page sat in a comfy chair talking about the album and the song "Stairway to Heaven". To me he is still a god. Even as I watch the video and hear his voice and the song I am getting goosebumps. That is superior song writing. Thank you to the BBC for doing this piece. Thank you to Jimmy Page for being such an inspiration to musicians for decades.
"It was a tricky thing to do because there are lots of music and changes in it." - Jimmy Page
"Everyone is playing with such honesty and conviction and that shows." - Jimmy Page
LIFE OF AGONY A Place Where There's No More Pain Napalm Records Release: 28 April 2017
I'm a long time Life of Agony fan. They are "locals". I've seen them live in Brooklyn (although, I've seen them live more in Germany). They are a solid heavy metal band. The new album on Napalm Records is wicked groovilicious. Yes, I'm biased. But Life of Agony's A Place Where's No More Pain is gobsmackingly amazing.
The songs are harsh; I mean they are like a punch to the gut. The feels. Zomg the feels. The lyrics just make you go, 'God Damn!' (said in Sweet D's voice). There is so much to headbang or pole dance (whatever you predilection).
'Dead Speak Kindly' and 'A New Low' puts me in the mind of Alice in Chains. Ted Jensen's fingerprints are all in this pie. He worked with Alice in Chains and you can tell. This is a good thing as you are familiar with the overall tone of the music.
