Last week’s Rockucation was: This time I’m going deep for this week’s question. This particular song features Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, John Paul Jones and Nicky Hopkins. John Entwistle was supposed to be a part of it, but he never showed up, hence John Paul Jones replaced him. This was supposed to turn into Led Zeppelin, but Beck and Page had a disagreement about the production of the song. What was the song originally called and after Beck’s and Page’s disagreement, what was it called after? The answer comes to us from Ronald R. Lariviere, from North Providence, RI. The answer was Bolero and once the disagreement took place, it became Beck’s Bolero.
