Saturday Song to Get Stoned To

SATURDAY SONG TO GET STONED TO: LED ZEPPELIN – “ACHILLES LAST STAND”

50

Led Zeppelin live

In addition to my initial 8th grade awe, this song will always remind me of screeching into the driveway of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas a few years ago, after devising a seemingly foolproof betting system on the road and actually turning around to drive the two hours back to Vegas to test it out.

And so I dedicate this one to my wacked-out partner-in-crime on the Vegas trips, the one and only Eddie Johnson, who still tells people that that’s his real name when he goes gambling.

PS…according to Wikipedia, this is Jimmy Page’s favourite Zeppelin song.
