It's surprisingly easy to forget about Led Zeppelin in 2014. With arena rock gradually fading from relevance, or at least being subverted and co-opted as a genre and idea -- the closest thing to a stadium-geared blockbuster in the last year might have been One Direction's Midnight Memories -- Zeppelin's enduring influence as the ideal of Big Rock Music is less relevant than ever. Even Almost Famous, the Zep-soaked Cameron Crowe flick that helped expose a new generation to the classic rock of their parents, is almost 15 years old at this point. The next time you hear "Stairway to Heaven," it might actually sound interesting and refreshing -- which is kinda cool, but just feels intuitively wrong.
