    Sorry, but I think AC/DC's Highway to Hell is a much better and more vibrante song than Stairway to Heaven.

    Highway to hell has no soul like Stairway does.

    the things you miss when you don't bop in as often as usual ...

    Sterling! your URL above has a comma! dam you!

    I've become kinda "ehn" on Zeppelin. I used to be a big fan, and I had all of their official albums (on cassette ... this was long before I switched to CDs and subsequently became enamoured of the bootleg). I keep meaning to get the two box sets so I have the material on CD (other than Physical Graffiti anyway) but it's not that important since, as homer pointed out, there are two classic rock format stations in the area and I usually hear LZ three times a week. Also, the one really decent (note I did not say "good" -- that would denote that they are good all the time, instead of only the 50% or so they really are) radio station I can get runs them regularly too. They also run about two Frank Zappa songs a day (the afternoon DJ closes his show with FZ every weekday) which keeps me happy.

    "Stairway" is okay by me. Dread Zeppelin (a reggae styled Zeppelin cover band with an Elvis impersonator as a frontman, for those in the dark) did a kick-*** cover in the late 80's which I like better. Rolf Harris, of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" fame, also did a cover, which frightens me ... but since I collect what I term "interesting" music I have a copy of the CD.

    "Thunderstruck" is a much better song than "Highway to Hell."

    Did you just go near a burning hot river of lava or are you just happy to see me?

    I kinda lucked out on the radio station thing around here. When I listen, NCSU has a pretty decent radio station, but in an effort to encompass every style, they sometimes lose my interest.

    ...sorry about the URL, Yorick. First no consulting fee, now this.....

    See, that's why I never punctuate after an URL. Just too must trouble to do the "[/URL]," stuff.

    Rolf Harris, of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" fame, also did a cover,
    Of course, the BEST cover is John Paul Young's lounge-act rendition of Stairway...

    Nope, Dash Rip Rock's Stairway to Freebird.

    I always thought "Gilligan's Island Stairway" was the best variation ...
    'course, I'm a Gilligan's Island fanatic, so what do I know ...
