Watch Jimmy Herring’s Instrumental Spin on Zeppelin’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You”

Is it just me, or are more artists covering this classic Led Zeppelin III song lately?

It’s probably just me.

However, the Huffington Post recently shared a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You” by a New York City band called Heavy English, claiming it would “melt your face off.” We agree it’s pretty cool.

You can check out Heavy English’s version of the song below (featuring the impressive Sal Bossio on guitar and vocals) and decide just how face melting it is.

Today, we offer up another cover of the song. It’s an imaginative instrumental version by the Jimmy Herring Band.

The performance, which features Herring on guitar (of course), Neal Fountain on bass, Jeff Sipe on drums and Matt Slocum on keyboards, was recorded at a small club in Arkansas.

For those of you who don’t know, the fleet-fingered Herring’s resume includes the Allman Brothers Band, Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh and Friends, the Ringers and much more. For more about Herring and his current projects, visit For more about Heavy English, visit them on Facebook.

Below, you can check out the Herring version of “Since I’ve Been Loving You” (top video) and the Heavy English version (bottom video). Enjoy both!

    Zepparelloa…never heard of them…Great Band! For those of us to have actually gone to a live Zep show in ’71, these girls have it down about as good as any I have ever heard…including Zep! Don’t compare it to the slick studio productions, but to the actual live performance that we experienced in the day. They seem to have the natural spirit, feeling and all. I will explore them more. Super Job!

  • Jimmy Herring and Band ! Great tribute to the Zep. Sandy,Oregon
