Stairway Backwards

There are already two known versions of these lyrics, however I was never satisfied with either of them and so set about righting this terrible wrong. Why would I do this? The IFMTL sets the tone:

'The debate over whether "Stairway To Heaven" contains any backmasked messages from the Devil is rather a heated one. In order to put this debate into perspective here are the full backwards lyrics to "Stairway To Heaven".'

The essays are accessable through the Discography via the 'Story' link for each song.

Led Zeppelin Flashed!

Why aren't more engaging visuals and interactivity used on enhanced CDs? Coupled with some exclusive content they could really be something.

You will need the Flash 4 plugin to view this feature.

Much of Led Zeppelin's massive success was due to their well deserved reputation as the biggest live act in the world.

This feature addresses the need to examine the creation of their studio albums and to discover the other side of Zeppelin.
