    i'm too lazy to look this up, but remember hearing about this years ago from somewhere:

    did Led Zeppelin really record with Elvis sometime in the 70s?

    was this real or just an urban myth?

    curious if anyone knows....

    I'll try to look up at lunch....figured someone would know better here....

    Can’t recall that one.

    The Beatles did go to Graceland and hang with Elvis at least once. They jammed and partied. None of recorded as far as I know...

    This one is for the “cover is better than the original” threads we do semi-annually.

    Thanks for the correction. I know it happened but apparently not where!

    I have read that Zeppelin did meet Elvis but I think that was a one time deal and no recording was done. Supposedly Plant and Elvis sang an Elvis song or two together.

    I like Dread Zeppelin. My sister made me a cassette tape of two albums worth of music. Used to listen to it when doing woodworking in the 80’s. This is one is my favorites.
