ALL BECAUSE OF VINYL
We are in Pangbourne, an idyllic English village by the Thames in the historic county of Berkshire. The year is 1968. And summer has come. The very summer that saw the encounter between two men who were destined to go down in music history among the most legendary figures of rock. “I looked through his records one day when he was out and I pulled out a pile to play and somehow or other they happened to be the same ones he was going to play when he got back, to see whether I liked them,” Robert Plant told The Guardian in 2014 of his first bonding moment with Jimmy Page. “It just worked from there.”
Impossible to imagine today that if they hadn’t found that common ground in their initial time together, Led Zeppelin might have never happened the way they did. And all because of vinyl.
