Were the Osmond Brothers secretly hip rockers?
That's the argument being made by Dave Swanson on the website Uliimate Classic Rock, as he found a freaky parallel between the Osmonds' 1972 song "Hold Her Tight" and Led Zeppelin's 1970 classic "Immigrant Song."
"Now, the Osmonds mention nothing about ice and snow or hammers of the gods here, but check the riff. They’re very similar! Were the brothers Osmond heavily digging on ‘Led Zeppelin III'? Looks like it! ... We are not suggesting by any means that the Osmond contingent outshines Led Zep, but check out the tunes side by side. They both do rock. That guitar riff plus Merrill’s raspy vocals pretty much kick ass! Take that Bobby Plant!"
