The Led Zeppelin reunion in London on Monday night received rave reviews. But if you’ve wondered just how great “Stairway to Heaven” sounded, you won’t get it on YouTube. YouTube has stepped up its efforts to catch copyrighted content, and most of the Zeppelin clips lead to a dead end.

This article includes a photograph and the Zeppelin music video.

Ike Turner has died at 76. His reputation as a musician was largely overshadowed by his history of domestic abuse towards his partner, Tina Turner. Ike and Tina Turner had many hits in the 1960s and 70s, and were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Photographs and a music video are included with this article.

Rare Video from the Led Zeppelin Reunion Concert

Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven ( December 9th, 2007)

The Led Zeppelin reunion concert in London on Monday night has been winning rave reviews. The Washington Post claimed that, “By the time they finish their second and third songs — ‘Ramble On’ and ‘Black Dog’ — it is becoming clear that, even if they are not gods who walk the Earth as men, these are no mere mortals before us. And this is going to be no mere rock show. We are witnessing history.” The Wall Street Journal reported that Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham, Zeppelin’s original drummer, who died in 1980, “mixed their brand of rock and metal with an authority that suggested they still might be the best rock band in the world.”

If you’ve read these reviews and wondered just how great “Stairway to Heaven” sounded, you won’t be finding out on YouTube. in response to media companies’ lawsuits, YouTube has greatly stepped up its efforts to catch copyrighted content, and thus most of the Zeppelin clips lead to a dead end. Click on them and you find the warning in bold letters, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner Music Group.”

So please enjoy the video of their performance that I was able to post here. After all, since they have no plans to ever tour again, I am posting the video for purely educational and artistic reasons.

And it’s a Chritstmas present to you!!
