Rock and Roll – Led Zeppelin – IntroSteve Ley
This is the famous (and often bewildering) intro to the song Rock and Roll by Led Zeppelin.
The exact timing of the intro to Led Zeppelin’s Rock and Roll has been the subject of debate for many years. Bonham’s accented hi-hat/snare pattern (that was inspired by Little Richard’s rock and roll classic, Keep a Knockin’) can be confusing, due to an expectation to hear the first note as beat 1. In the video above, a click track complete with count-in has been added to illustrate where to feel the pulse through the section.
