Led Zeppelin It is not exactly correct that Led Zeppelin wrote "Whole Lotta Love" even though they claimed themselves as the song author in their original album. Willie Dixon wrote the lyrics. The song was originally entitled "You Need Love" was put out by Muddy Waters in 1962. "You Need Loving" was put out by The Small Faces in 1966. Led Zeppelin recorded "Whole Lotta Love" in 1969. It's no surprise that Led Zeppelin found a lot of inspiration in American blues. If a person would trace the history and evolution of one of Led Zep's biggest hits, "Whole Lotta Love"'s roots are with Muddy Waters. Willie Dixon wrote the lyrics and sued Led Zeppelin in 1985. They settled out of court. On the CD version of the song, Willie Dixon was given his due as the person who wrote the song. Not only did Led Zeppelin "borrow" the song from Willie, they "borrowed" the vocal styling of the song from Steve Marriott of The Small Faces, who recorded the song four years earlier than Led Zeppelin.

Was Whole Lotta Love recorded with Jimmy's Fender Telecaster or did he use his Les Paul?

Although he had made the switch to a Gibson Les Paul prior to the recording of Led zeppelin II, Jimmy Page knew that this would not give him the sound he was looking for for Whole Lotta Love. For this reason Jimmy reverted to the Fender Telecaster (which he had used earlier in his career) when he had recorded Whole Lotta Love!
