Rock ’n’ Roll never dies, and LA Rocker Steve Cooke is not letting a pandemic stop the
Since the initial lockdown in March, he’s been busy composing original material and studying
relevant Led Zeppelin songs that relate to the pandemic. He has transformed two of the classic
English rock band’s songs into renditions that concur with our current times.
“It’s amazing that a song Robert Plant wrote in 1970 has so much meaning in 2020 and relates

Steve composes his original music in a way that transports the listener to a time when music was
the universal language that brought everyone together, and he’s hoping that nostalgia

Cooke’s EP is a creation that reflects the social and emotional landscape of our historically
unprecedented era, incorporating elements of the 70’s and combining them with his modern
acoustic rock feel.
It will be produced at some amazing Hollywood studios. Supporters can hear snippets of his two
renditions of Led Zeppelin’s “That’s The Way” and “Going to California” upon visiting the
IndieGoGo campaign page (below).
“This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone and I want to share my new sound to help us
get through this,” says Steve.
