Led Zeppelin Show holds their own as Mad Shadow

Coyote Joes featured  the Led Zeppelin Show, May 28. And while I missed their set of Led Zeppelin covers, I caught something better, their alter egos Mad Shadow.Danny Sveinsson and  Erik Olufson of Mad Shadow. Photo by Richard Amery

Though they looked and sounded like  Led Zeppelin. The shirtless Robert Plant (Erik Olufson)  shook his head fully of curly golden hair and writhed around the stage  like he was possessed  while shrieking Robert Plant style high notes.

The spooky, skinny, dark and brooding Jimmy Page (guitarist Danny Sveinson) stood in the shadows, brandishing a big Les Paul while blasting ’70s style riffs through a  big Marshall amp.

 They played a too brief set of original music  which combined bluesy Led Zeppelin -style heavy riffs with more contemporary influences like Soundgarden. They nailed down their ’70s influence with a couple bars of Golden Earring’s ‘Twilight Zone.’
