Classic Rock Pick Of The Week – Led Zeppelin ‘Rock And Roll’ [VIDEO]
Rock and Roll.
A great title, a great band, simple as that.
The song was recorded in late 1970/early 1971, and was first released as the second track from the 1971 LP, Led Zeppelin IV.
‘Rock and Roll’ is one of the few Zep tunes where John, John, Robert and Jimmy, are all credited as the composer.
Here’s a couple of trivia questions:
Did you know Ian Stewart from the Rolling Stones plays on this song?
Do you remember what the “B” side tune was? – “4 Sticks!”
In 2002, General Motors used the song in a Cadillac commercial.
Here’s a video of the song you might enjoy, from one of Led Zeppelin’s concert tours back in 1973.
