In 2014, listeners to BBC Radio 2 voted “Whole Lotta Love” as containing the greatest guitar riff of all time.
A song that means so much too so many people any with many definitions as well. There are a number of great versions of Whole Lotta Love live. Have heard it played at many weddings and even a funeral or two. Although the credits are frequently listed as Jimmy Page / John Bonham / John Paul Jones / Robert Plant is an adaptation of a Willie Dixon tune. There are a number of blues versions too Muddfy Waters being my favorite.
