Look, I Told You: No Stairway To Heaven; But Of Course I'll Make An Exception For A Reggae Band Fronted By An Elvis Impersonator

We also hereby offer an exemption to our No Lionel Ritchie Edict of 1998 -- Brick Houses Of The Holy:

Dread Zeppelin

(Dedicated to my friend Andy S.)

You haven't posted the ultimate request song: Stairway To Freebird.

I worked at a concert featuring these chaps, for a one trick pony they put on quite a show.

There's some alternative music for you. Loved the video with the Stairway to Heaven sung by the Elvis impersonator.

Truly, as I watched and listened to the second song (horrible enough to get rockers rolling in their psychedelic, tie-dyed, hemp lined graves), I kept thinking that Elvis' belt had a button on it that begged to be pushed. I wondered if he would sing in alternate languages if I managed to poke it, or maybe (I hoped) it was the mute button ... but I was unsuccessful in my mission. Maybe next time around.

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches, anyone?
