WMG / Led Zeppelin

There was an intended meaning to Stairway To Heaven
"And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last."

Stairway To Heaven is about...
  • A lady who's sure all that glitters is gold.
  • Death
  • Drugs
  • Its own Mind Screw potential.
  • The song itself is a metaphorical Stairway to Heaven. When you listen to it, you will temporarily access heaven because of the sheer amount of awesomeness.
  • Hope. That one day everything will make sense, and the forests will echo...well, you get the idea.
    Does anybody remember laughter?
    • Heck, Robert Plant said "I think this song is about hope" in the rockumentary.
  • A metaphor for people who believe their good deeds will pay off.

Jimmy Page is cursed.
The following people connected to Jimmy Page all died in their 30s.
  • Keith Relf, lead singer of the Yardbirds- dead at 33
  • Keith Moon, The Who drummer and the one who (allegedly) inspired the name "Led Zeppelin"- dead at 32
  • John Bonham, drummer for Led Zeppelin- dead at 32
  • Sandy Denny, guest vocalist on "The Battle of Evermore"- dead at 31
Can this be a coincidence? Obviously not.

  • And, yet, Robert Plant is still alive at the age of 64.
    • Maybe because of the next theory:

Robert Plant had a childhood encounter with The Doctor
Look at the lyrics to Kashmir. Clearly, The Doctor (a traveler of both time and space) needed Robert to help a peaceful race of aliens stranded on Earth (To sit with the elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen). These aliens have prophetic powers ( They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed ). The aliens explain their predicament ( Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear/ But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear) Of course, Robert goes for a flight in the TARDIS (Oh, I've been flying) and ends up lost in an apocalyptic world ( All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground/ And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land/ Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.) The rest of song details the rest of the adventure involving the Pilot of the Storm, Shangri-La and the Father of the Four Winds. The title for the story? Doctor Who and the Hammer of the Gods.

And for the record, I wasn't entirely sober when I had this idea
  • Maybe the "peaceful race" is the Ood?
