    Led Zeppelin Stole a Lot of Songs 

    I heard these songs several years ago on The Ticket, but I just ran across them again.

    I did have the song comparisons embedded, but I couldn’t stop it from autoplaying, so click here to hear the comparisons.

    The following list does not include covers that were properly credited.

    From: http://www.warr.org/zep.html

    Now by popular demand! A list of some of the songs Zep stole from other artists:

    • “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” – A folk song by Anne Bredon, this was originally credited as “traditional, arranged by Jimmy Page,” then “words and music by Jimmy Page,” and then, following legal action, “Bredon/Page/Plant.”
    • “Black Mountain Side” – uncredited version of a traditional folk tune previously recorded by Bert Jansch.
    • “Bring It On Home” – the first section is an uncredited cover of the Willie Dixon tune (as performed by the imposter Sonny Boy Williamson).
    • “Communication Breakdown” – apparently derived from Eddie Cochran’s “Nervous Breakdown.”
    • “Custard Pie” – uncredited cover of Bukka White’s “Shake ‘Em On Down,” with lyrics from Sleepy John Estes’s “Drop Down Daddy.”
    • “Dazed And Confused” – uncredited cover of the Jake Holmes song (see The Above Ground Sound Of Jake Holmes).
    • “Hats Off To (Roy) Harper” – uncredited version of Bukka White’s “Shake ‘Em On Down.”
    • “How Many More Times” – Part one is an uncredited cover of the Howlin’ Wolf song (available on numerous compilations). Part two is an uncredited cover of Albert King’s “The Hunter.”
    • “In My Time Of Dying” – uncredited cover of the traditional song (as heard on Bob Dylan‘s debut).
    • “The Lemon Song” – uncredited cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Killing Floor” – Wolf’s publisher sued Zeppelin in the early 70s and settled out of court.
    • “Moby Dick” – written and first recorded by Sleepy John Estes under the title “The Girl I Love,” and later covered by Bobby Parker.
    • “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” – uncredited cover of the Blind Willie Johnson blues.
    • “Since I’ve Been Lovin’ You” – lyrics are the same as Moby Grape‘s “Never,” though the music isn’t similar.
    • “Stairway To Heaven” – the main guitar line is apparently from “Taurus” by Spirit.
    • “White Summer” – uncredited cover of Davey Graham’s “She Moved Through The Fair.”
    • “Whole Lotta Love” – lyrics are from the Willie Dixon blues “You Need Love.”

    Oh Ticket Why Have You Forsaken Me? 

    Over the last 3 months since Big Dick Hunter was fired I’ve found myself listening less and less to The Ticket. At first I attributed it to the fact that I wasn’t listening to Big Dick on the way home, so my radio was no longer tuned to 1310 AM when I left for work in the morning. Now I think it’s the quality of the programming. I’ve always found Dunham and Miller just barely listenable. Was it not for Gordon Keith I wouldn’t listen to The Musers at all. Apparently I’m not the only one whose finding the ticket harder to listen to, just check out the latest Arbitron ratings, pay close attention to the trend. The station has been in decline since Jeff Catlin took over for Bruce Gilbert as Program Director, and has gotten even worse since the station was sold.  (Bruce Gilbert left The Ticket to become GM for ESPN Radio Network)
    Anyone who would let Big Dick get away must be missing something. Cancel the show, that’s fine, but I would’ve found a way to use his talent.I got Sirius Sattelite Radio a little over a year ago, and have listened to it almost exclusively since. The only exceptions were Howard Stern and The Ticket. I still listen to BaD Radio and The Hardline occasionally, but nothing like I used to. I was a confirmed P1, even frequently choosing The Musers over Howard Stern. Now, I have a hard time listening to more than one segment without changing the channel. I don’t know what changed, but they just don’t hold my interest anymore.
    I only hope for Richard that he made some good contacts while in New York, he would be a perfect fit for Howard 100 .
