Many artists claim to possess multiple talents, but it’s not a stretch to say that Queen guitarist Brian May comes closest to actually being a Renaissance Man. Besides being an influential musician, Dr. May -- he’s an astrophysicist who finished his Ph.D. in 2007 -- is also an expert in stereo photography, as evidenced by a new book he’s co-authored, ‘Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures In Hell.’
To say that Led Zeppelin’s seven-minute opus ‘No Quarter’ -- No. 10 on our countdown of the Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs -- is “a little psychedelic” is a vast understatement. Between Robert Plant’s processed, distorted vocals and John Paul Jones’ roiling electric piano to the slow-churning tempo and Jimmy Page’s dull guitar buzz, the song from 1973’s ‘Houses Of The Holy’ is sinister and woozy.
