A Sphere in the Heart of Silence

Led Zeppelin

"When I joined the band, I lived with Kurt for eight months, when I first got there, he had just broken up with a girl and was totally heartbroken. We would sit in his tiny, shoe-box apartment for eight hours at a time without saying a word. For weeks and weeks this happened. Finally one night, we were driving back in the van, and Kurt said, ‘You know, I’m not always like this.’ And I just went, ‘Whewww.’" - Dave Grohl.





Going To California | Led Zeppelin

It started as a song about Californian earthquakes, at this point the song was known as “Guide To California”.

The song was inspired by “California” by Joni Mitchell, with whom Jimmy and Robert were both infatuated, but more directly inspired by her song called “If I had A King” which was about Graham Nash. To find a queen without a king, They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.”(Later Graham Nash responded with a song called “I Used To Be A King”.) 

In 2007 Robert stated that the song was about him reflecting on the first years of the group, when he was only about 20, and was struggling to find himself in the midst of all the craziness of California and the band and the groupies.

But anyway, Michele Overman was the main inspiration: “Someone told me there’s a girl out there, With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair”, Jimmy Page told Michele. The song was not written for her, but she definitely was one of the influences and represented the “whole California thing” that inspired the song.

Led Zeppelin IV, released November 8, 1971.

"I Used To Be A King" by Graham Nash was on his album Songs For Beginners, released May 28, 1971.

"If I Had A King" about Graham Nash?  There was "I Had A King" about Chuck Mitchell.

Yes, to be sure we have this straight: Joni’s “I Had A King” was about Chuck, and Graham’s “I Used To Be A King” was about Joni. A very complicated world these people lived in. :-)

"John is such a pure artist. He doesn’t care about the reward, he doesn’t care about any of the things that come with rock star and with being in a band or any of the things that someone might think would be the finish benefits of being in a band. Those things are absolutely no concern to him. He just lives for the process of making music, and for the process of surrendering his body and his soul to the spirits, you know… and letting music flows through him. It’s all he wants to do, and he’s really dedicated his life to just doing that and to creating good feelings in the world by doing that."
