Talking about Heart and Led Zeppelin, Heart does a rocking cover of Rock n Roll on the album I got for Valentines Day. Another awesome Led Zeppelin cover is by the mexican duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. Absolutley instrumental but with a classic like Stairway to Heaven and such beautiful classical sound you dont need words. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNc5o9TU0t0

Obviously not everyones flavour but Im really digging this flamenco classical vibe this morning.
Anyone listen to these guys? Would love to catch a gig

A band like that would never get mainstream airplay in the states.

I've worked as a recording engineer on and off for the past 8 years. When I was first starting I interned under an Australian band called "The Living End." They were telling me how shocked they were by the crap music they heard on radio and TV in America.
