Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ is a track that would ultimately play a pivotal role in shaping the career of one of the most vital band’s of all time, allowing Zeppelin to become a stadium-filling group who would soundtrack rock music for years to come.
The legendary track took over a year to perfect with Jimmy Page initially coming up with the intuitive riff during the summer of 1968, a period of time when he was residing in his houseboat on the River Thames. Unfortunately, the riff didn’t find a home on their self-titled debut which was released the following January but, showing longevity, the glorious composition was eventually put to good use.
Jay Buchanan, Scott Holiday, Dave BesteandMichael Miley are the members of Rival Sons, a band founded in 2008 that has become one of the most outstanding bands on the Long Beach scene.
Inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Bad Company, the four piece captures the sound of classic blues rock with an extra dose of decibels, riffs, blunt percussions and Buchanan’s soaring vocals.
The band has released five albums to date—the latest being Hollow Bones (2016)—acclaimed by both the critics and the public. Their reputation in the international rock & roll circuit landed them opening shows for rock legends such as Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and AC/DC.
‘A Whole Lotta Love’, the Led Zeppelin cover which was a top three hit in 1996 for Goldbug, Goldbug, real name Richard Walmsley, sued his former label, Acid Jazz, for royalties he claimed never to have received for his cover of the track. The track was a very successful and popular dance track.
