History in Five Songs 01: Led Zeppelin in Hair Metal
Welcome to History in Five Songs with Martin Popoff!
This is the show that aims to make grand and often oddball hard rock and heavy metal points through a narrative built upon the tiny idea of a quintet of songs. Buttressed with illustrative clips, Martin argues quickly and succinctly why these songs—and the specific sections of these tracks—support his mad professor premise, from the wobbly invention of an “American” heavy metal, to the influence of Led Zeppelin in hair metal or to more succinct topics like tapping and twin leads.
The songs serve as bricks, but Martin slathers plenty of mortar. At the end, hopefully he has sturdy house in which this week’s theory can reside unbothered by the elements.
In this first episode Martin tells the history of Led Zeppelin in Hair Metal in these Five Songs:
'Still of the Night' by Whitesnake
'Get It On' by Kingdom Come
'Wait for You' by Bonham
