If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could bring the catalog of ONE band or artist, who would it be?
I’d choose Led Zeppelin. Here are my reasons:
1. Huge catalog! For one thing Led Zeppelin has such a big back catalog, I’d have a lot of music to listen to. That’s a definite bonus. I certainly wouldn’t choose a band that had only one or two albums. That would get boring really fast.
2. Wide variety. Led Zeppelin has hard rock, blues, power ballads, country-style rock, acoustic, middle-eastern flavored rock, and just about everything else. I wouldn’t get sick of listening to the same thing all the time.
3. Best rhythm section in rock and roll. John Bonham and John Paul Jones are the best. Period. I never get tired of listening to John Bonham drum. I could probably make some drums on my island and drum along!
Who would you choose and why?
My favorite Zeppelin tune:
Something slower and acoustic:
A little blues:
And, of course, the ultimate power ballad:
