After nearly five years that saw the group release five albums--from 1969's earth-shattering eponymous debut to 1973's less consistent Houses of the Holy (all on Atlantic Records)--and incessant touring that saw the group break numerous attendance records and reach the top of the charts worldwide, Led Zeppelin finally took a much-needed break in 1974.

Blow your face out, baby...

Once, when I was teaching Chemical Quantitative Analysis to pharmacy students, one of my charges approached me before a test and asked, “Can you tell me all I need to know to pass this quant quiz?" The exam was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and my class was wanting ...

John Coltrane: Ole

Read "Ole" reviewed by John Ballon

John Coltrane never stopped wondering what he wanted from music, and never stopped pushing the boundaries.
