Led Zeppelin were on the rise in the summer of 1969, while Doors frontman Jim Morrison was in the midst of a long and painful public downward spiral. On July 27, the two bands met going in opposite directions.
We're just days away from the last few releases in Led Zeppelin's deluxe reissue series, and the band has offered one last advance sneak peek at the newly remastered and expanded albums by posting a previously unreleased version of "When the Levee Breaks."
Both by birthright and through work experience, Jason Bonham has a better understanding of the inner workings of Led Zeppelin than most people, and he shared a bit of that knowledge during a recent appearance on Train frontman Pat Monahan's podcast.
On July 31, Led Zeppelin will round out their deluxe catalog reissue series with remastered and expanded versions of 1976's Presence, 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda — and they're already offering a sneak peek into the newly bulked-up Coda.
