60's Live: Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin

It's time to get the Led out, boys and girls. Led Zeppelin's live version of 'Dazed and Confused' is today's selection for 60's live. This song was part of their 1969 in-studio concert for Danish TV.

Zeppelin's released two amazing albums in 1969, Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II. 'Dazed and Confused' is featured on the first album and the band really knocks it out of the park with their 1969 Danish TV performance. John Paul Jones is cool as ever on the bass, Jimmy Page pulls off using the violin bow, and John Bonham is a beast on the drums.

I recall that there is a rather interesting story with this appearance on Danish TV. The history hounds of the internet will need to find the supporting documentation. However, I do recall watching an interview with Robert Plant back in the late 80's or early 90's and he said that backstage there was a woman who screamed loudly when shown the cover for the first Led Zeppelin album. Apparently, she had a relative die in the infamous 1937 Hindenburg accident. Help me out here, kids. Am I the only one who remembers this interview?

I don't know what else to say, so watch Zeppelin rock for the next nine minutes.
