D&D40 Bloghop: Day 23
Again, given the age I am I usually associate D&D and AD&D in particular with Led Zeppelin.
I grew up in the mid-west, the middle of Illinois to be exact. Classic Rock was all that was on the radio. So songs like "The Battle of Evermore" or "Misty Mountain Hop" invoke that quasi-Tolkien feel that goes hand in hand with D&D. But I also have to mention "Kashmir" and "The Immigrant Song" as having some lingering associations for me.
I have to admit I once wanted to create a series of adventures all based on the songs from Led Zeppelin 4 (aka "Zoso"). While that is SOOO a typical High School kid in the 80s thing to do with D&D, I still think it might be fun. I mean look as the adventures I did for The Dragon & The Phoenix, Season of the Witch and The Hex Girls. Obviously I listened to a lot of music in my formative years.
