Oh.. I'm sorry blokes.. this is just painful. Funny but painful.

My apologies to Mr. Plant, Page, Jones and Mr. Bonzo

Maybe not as "groovy," but here's an interesting version:

The original post was Rolf Harris an Aussie icon from years ago, but funnily he had most of his success in England....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolf_Harris

Oh and the instrument is called a "wobble board"

Keith

Edit...

Interestingly, (from Wikipedia)

"Stairway to Heaven"

Harris' career received a boost in 1993 when his cover version of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" became a hit, reaching number 7 of the UK singles chart.

Rolf Harris originally performed the song, live, during an appearance on the television comedy show The Money or the Gun. Harris' version of the song recreated the song in the style of Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport, complete with wobble board and didgeridoo solos.

It is important to note that, although he had the sheet music, Harris claims that he had not heard the original version when he recorded his; as such, he disavows any claim that his version was intended to be irreverent or humorous[9].

Harris' version was one of 28 versions of the song performed on the show — and his version is one of the 25 versions of the song which was released on the The Money or the Gun's Stairways to Heaven videotape and CD (Harris' single comes from the same recording of his version of the song).

I know a little bit about a lot of things, but not a lot about anything...
Looking for people to jam with in Sydney Oz.......

WOW! Not just interesting, but a very very "worthy" a version. Worthy on many levels.

So his technique...what is that? Is he sweep picking those apreggiations (those up strokes)?

I almost like that version as much as the original.

Thanks Ricochet for sharing that one.

We was speaking about them some weeks ago:

In fact, I didn't remember it when I asked but David made some comments on it in one of his e-mails.
