yesterday was the first time i heard led zeppelin's stairway to heaven. the wonders of youtube.
i wonder how the classic rock bands ever wrote their songs? do they write it while smoking their cigarettes and plucking their gutairs? writing their songs while high? (this i'm sure)
or do they write their songs while walking their dogs, having an ice cream, laughing with their friends, while contemplating suicide, drying their hair, going to the supermarket, preening themself in front of the mirror, arguing with the post office lady, taking a piss, catching a bus or just idling away?
one way or another, they sure don't write music like they do now back then.
