The Nazi's at the Card game we're the Record Lawyers, The tour managers, and all the other people who either said Led Zeppelin would amount to nothing or tried to drain the nickels out of Led Zeppelin. He shot the place up it was Peter Grants way of getting back at all of them...

peace out..


Who gives a damn if they were Satanic.. Thats probably why they rocked so hard. You think Christ could whip out that 15

Being a music lover and interested in culture as well as in history , I find the answer given by mister Chris Zangara relevant, lucid and objective. A lot has been done into the popular culture to demonize music, dance and festivities.  Since the advent of rock and roll into the popular culture, a lot of material is being supplied to the puritanical, paranoid and zealous preachers of almost all confessions.

In the popular french canadian culture (that I belong to) in some of the legends, Satan, is often portrayed as a seductive trouble making violinist when a party is happening. Even if every body is having a good clean fun.

Also as far I know about Jimmy Page is that besides being a very good poser and accomplished guitar hero, he seems to be referring more to Celtic mythology and spirituality then to Satanism. Anyway almost every thing from toothpaste to pop tarts is Satanist to a fanatic.

Have a good day and long live Rock!

Only one mans opinion.Page is an avid follower of Satanism and Aleister Crowley.He named his daughter after one of Crowleys rituals.

Don't know how to begin with this, so I will just come out with it. Jimmy Page had a son in 1962, he had a one night stand which resulted in the birth of a baby boy on 13/04/62. This boy was my brother. He saw the baby once and did not want to get involved. In June 1981 my brother pass away with cancer. Jimmy pages first son died at the age of 19. My mother does not talk about it and I do not know if she contacted him when my brother was sick. I have just learn't about Jimmy pages involvement with the occult and the death of Robeet plants first son. I am asking myself lots of questions

They were the rock and roll band of all time.  Get off you throne and quit berating the best band of all time. Quit saying they were satanic.

Lol. Just a reminder, any occult dabbling or interest in magic, spells, tarot, even karma, is Satanic. All these things are clearly forbidden in the Bible. You can't be a Christian wiccan, Christian New Ager or Christian pagan. Also remember, all these things are from Satan, not God. It's how he gets people to follow him. So saying someone is into the occult but not a satanist is laughable. Today people are so scared to admit something is wrong and there is a silly culture of trying to tolerate everything and not call anything evil, for fear of being rebuked. Really, you don't have to be a fundementalist or even a Christian to realise occult practices are wrong. Just use some common sense. For instance Paganism, Wicca and Satanism all live by ''do what thou wilt'' and ''you can save yourself'' or ''you are divine''. Christianity teaches us only Jesus can save us (since we are sinners and not holy or divine!) and that we should treat others with respect and be good and virtuous (opposite of do what thou wilt). There really is no grey area. And that means Jimmy Page really was a satanist. Fact. All religions are not intrinsically the same. Fact. Oh and if u didn't get it, occultism is really satanism. Fact.

I agree, Page seems weird in a lot of ways but he and the rest of the band were talented musicians and that's what counts for me.  Since I started listening to zeppelin when I was real young I never paid much attention to lyrics anyways.  They sound good in harmony with the guitar, bass and drums.  I have to say a lot of their songs have references to the devil (houses of the holy, acheilles last stand, nobodys fault but mine) but I think plant sings a lot about temptation, trials of man, short stories and stuff that was just whirling around upstairs.  Nobody ever seems to bring up In my time of Dying, and the many references to Jesus.  I know the song was originally wrote by an old blues singer from the 30s I forget his name, as well as heartbreaker when he says"by the grace of the good Lord above" but I guess it can be interpreted differently by each person who listens.

I disagree with the above answer. Anyone wondering if Zep was into satanism, and deep black magic needs to take the time to watch the doc. "They Sold Their Souls For Rock and Roll".It's mind blowing to say the least. It has tons of artists, many who admit to channeling spirits and satanism. But it goes in depth about Zep. It's no lie that Jimmy Page bought and resides in Alister Crowley's old Boleskin house. Crowley named the "most evil person in the later century", and arguably the most evil human to ever live, is Pages Idol, and practices his teachings obsessively. Anyone wanting to know more about Crowley can do the research. Just watch the documentary. I am a bass player and have played for twenty two years, and grew up idolizing Zep, and John Paul Jones. I gave my life to the lord in 2005, and became born again. It broke my heart, trust me, when I watched the doc. But I'm glad I watched it, totally changed my view of secular music. I NO LONGER LISTEN TO IT...

I read an article in which the guy made the case that Led Zeppelin was satanic, etc.,etc.. He paid particular attention to the symbols used by the band on Led Zeppelin IV--each band member had a symbol.

Ironically, that same guy also identified the King James Version of the Bible (i.e. the translation of the Christian bible that is standard in most Protestant [eg non-Catholic/non-eastern orthodox]) churches, as being satanic and containing one of those symbols on its original cover.

There are people that see satanism everywhere.

On the other hand, I think mysticism, the occult, Crowley and all fo this "new age spirituality" was quite trendy at the time Led Zeppelin was making it big. There is no doubt that they were not oblivious to these influences upon the "in" crowd they travelled in.
