It is a well known fact that the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley’s birthday falls on January 8th. It is a slightly lesser known fact that Jimmy Page, the creator and mastermind of Led Zeppelin, celebrates his birthday on January 9th. Given that England is six hours ahead of Tupelo, Mississippi, these two musical icons could have been born on the same day!!
Those Elvis/Page missing six hours are the “Evil Equinox;” the magical swirling stew of time/space continuum that gave rise to the very FIRST performance of Dread Zeppelin. Late in the evening, on January 8, 1989, DZ took to the stage. From the opening blasts of “Misty Mountain Hop,” Dread Zeppelin forever changed perceptions of cover and/or tribute bands (because they were both… and neither!). By the recessional “Stairway To Heaven,” band and audience knew they had tapped into something very special.
It’s like Elvis said all those years ago, “You gotta do these Led Zeppelin songs… reggae style; the way they were supposed to be done (I think).”
On January 8th, 2009, we will celebrate the Evil Equinox again, this time as a 20th anniversary, by offering the first in a series of DVDs featuring the original Dread Zeppelin (accept no substitutes!). “Pure Inner-Tainment” gathers all MTV style videos along with live performances and many surprises including “Tortelvis Hometown: An FBI Survellance Tape” (shocking and tawdry!).
The first run of DVDs will be packaged with a collectable sticker and postcard.
