The Osipov State Russian Folk Orchestra is best known for their classic Russian tunes, but they also enjoy the occasional rock and roll song. Here, their balalaika section performs a cover of the 1971 Led Zeppelin classic Stairway to Heaven. We had no idea that a contrabass balalaika was a thing.
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was once bequeathed a 1959 Fender Telecaster guitar. With a little help from Page himself, the animators at Nexus Studios share the mystical story of this illustrious and iconic instrument. Fender sells a replica of the psychedelic dragon guitar here.
Cybertronic Spree is a Transformers-themed tribute band, who plays a variety of cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs dressed in awesome costumes. During a recent show, they also performed a truly entertaining cover of Led Zeppelin’s wailing Immigrant Song.
A quartet of musicians perform a soothing cover version of Led Zeppelin’s 1971 classic in a classic Japanese style, played on 21-string Nijugen-Kotos and wooden flutes. It’s reminiscent of Regina Spektor’s fantastic cover version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
