    Did Led Zeppelin share their wealth with JRR Tolkien?

    How many of their songs are about The Lord of the Rings or feature LOTR references?

    Don't forget Southern Blues. They covered "When the Levee Breaks," by Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe McCoy.

    NPR had a pretty cool story about music from the 1927 floods yesterday. Led Zep got namechecked.
