Led Zepp?

One more, and then I'll leave you guys alone. The younger nephews are into Green Day, and I've been told that L.Z. is the name of the game. But of course, I'd rather sneak in some Queen, because . . . because it's better music.

My primary musical advisor recommends that I send them LZ IV. But SURELY a person coud do better . . .?

Okay. I have prejudices: I'd rather pay homage to Freddie vs. get the Led out.

NOW we're talking music! (Well, I tried with the other post, but the blacklist hates me I guess.) I am a huuuuuge Zeppelin fan(atic)!

My two favorites: Led Zeppelin III and Presence. Owning these two wins massive cool points with me. LZIV (ZoSo)...eh. It *is* good, but isn't everyone still a little sick of Stairway to Heaven? (Maybe it's just me?)
Anyway, if they're into Zeppelin, they probably already either have it, or are tired of it. ;)

No, no--thy are Green Day fans. The idea is to get them some Old Fart music that will flickl their respective Bics.

Stupid teenagers. I should just get them what I consider essential, and be done with it.

Lay some of the older Yes on them. I recommend Close to the Edge or Relayer.

Since Green Day is a three-piece band let them hear RUSH and see what a power trio sounds like.

Play what you like when they're around, and let them tell you what they like. And when they're playing some of their favorites, give it a listen and tell them what you like.

I'm now off to put on some Moody Blues.

I don't wish old Yes on anyone of any age. Now, Trevor Rabin Yes go for it, although it sounds nothing like Green Day.

If you want punk go with the Ramones or Husker Du and Bad Brains for something edgier.

For the mighty Zeppelin Zoso is rock heaven on earth. "Stairway" is beautiful with "Rock and Roll" being unadulterated energy. For Zep in its rawest form go with LZI.

Rush is an acquired taste, but it's so satisfying when that time comes.

At this point, I'm thinking of Houses of the Holy for the nine-year-old, and early Queen (first album, or Sheer Heart Attack) for the 14-year-old.

Try The Prophets Song (off of A Night at the Opera) through headphones.

Led Zeppelin lV was perhaps their most acclaimed album, although in my opinion When The Levee Breaks ranks higher than Stairway To Heaven. My personal favorite album is Physical Graffiti, and Kashmir as favorite song. You really can't go wrong with Zeppelin. Their music will surely stand the test of time.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
