Video Review: Led Zeppelin, "Celebration Day"


Celebration Day heralds the unique, creative chemistry, and craftsmanship which first immortalised Led Zeppelin with 1975's classic The Song Remains The Same. With Jason Bonham eloquently and capably filling his father's footsteps (demonstrating an 'encyclopaedic knowledge' of the essence of Zep rhythms), John Paul Jones on keyboards and bass, and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant in the driving seat, the stage is set for a memorable DVD event for the millions who were unfortunate enough not to be present for the sold out London gig in 2007.

This 16 track exultation of well loved tracks and gig footage (from rousing opener Good Times Bad Times to an epic rendition of Kashmir) enables rock's premier band to stand up and be counted 'to a fresh young audience' as suggested by guitar man Jimmy Page. The old magic is still strong!
