Led Zeppelin to use Bihar school cheating photograph as album cover for sequel to Physical Graffiti

22, Mar 2015 By Beer & Biryani

Austin, Texas: Led Zeppelin, the legendary rock band and makers of world’s all time best rock song – Stairway to Heaven are believed to be giving a serious thought to using Bihar’s mass copying photograph, now a world wide buzz, as cover for the sequel of its 1975 album Physical Graffiti. In the past too, the iconic band has had its association with the sub-continent with one of its songs named after the disputed territory Kashmir.

Speaking to our reporters at Texas, the vocalist Robert Plant said, “We are currently working on the sequel of Physical Graffiti and have been thinking about the album cover’s possible designs for a while now. While browsing through internet news, I was fascinated with the mass cheating photograph from India. While I condemn the act of cheating, the idea of an under-construction building with people standing on half-built windows and their shelters is really a piece of art and can be a subject of deep study. We have written to the Bihar government if we could use this photograph for our upcoming album. Will have to wait and see what the authorities say about it.”

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister of Bihar Mr. Nitish Kumar seemed to be on cloud nine with Led Zeppelin’s request. He said, “This is a great business opportunity for Bihar to internationalize. If we can give IAS officers and IITians to the country, why not help the rock fraternity across the world! And yes, we have decided to exploit this point in our rallies for the upcoming assembly elections. This will definitely prove to be a blow to Modi. Abki baar, Nitish sarkaar!

Sources say that Led Zeppelin might be asked to include one of Bihar’s ministers in their band as a drummer without which the deal seems unworkable.
