Led Zepplin will go down in history as the most amazingly talented song writers and bands ever!
They truly put out memorable music that changed an entire generation of musicians and song writers as they were the Pied Pipers who led many a young soul to the beautiful side of the occult and paganism.
Robert Plant had an uncanny voice with unearthly range and Jimmy Page played like no other. Page was so taken with Alleister Crowley he bought his home!
The four of them together created a hauntingly, uncharted, wild and amazing sound. With that said there is no mistaking the symbolism embedded in Zep's albums.
Hi Music lovers, I think Robert, the writer of the lyrics of this song, wrote the lyrics by choose the death of Janis Joplin in Oct. Because what he wrote shows us that some ideas of Janis. It says that 'There is a lady who's sure all that gillters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven.' I think that's enough to understand that the lirics shows about Janis'. I think that these hints are enough to understand where the idea of the song came from.' So forget about the rest of the lyrics of the song, okey! I mean Both songs 'Stairway To Heaven' and 'Ameican Pie' were happened to released almost the same time in the end of 1971. And this song is about the NEW WORLD ORDER and new age/shift in consciousness: rise of the anti Christ. I have a deep respect for music in general and this song in particular.
At first, I thought the song writer of the song 'Stairway', Robert Plant, heard the song 'American Pie' in 1971 and he wrote the song 'Stairway' but both songs were released almost the same period of time in late 1971. Music, and its meaning, is to some degree a mirror, which reflects the listener's current state of mind at the time they hear a performance or read the lyrics, their attitude about life, and their past experience.
Jesus said that Satan is the "prince of this world" and so it is.
