    Led Zeppelin: All Of My Love

    All Of My Love was written about Robert Plant's son Karac who died at the age of 5

    On July 26th 1977, Led Zeppelin traveled to New Orleans for another show of a tour. As they were checking into the hotel, Robert Plant received a call from his wife: Karac was seriously ill. Two hours later, Maureen called back; their son was dead.
    Plant and Bonham caught the next flight back to England and the tour was immediately cancelled.

    The song is an emotional tour de force with Plant pouring out his heart

    Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
    his is the force that lies within
    Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
    He is a feather in the wind

    The Eagles Hotel California was written about a hotel hotel that was purchased by Anton LaVey and converted into a Church of Satan.

    The song "Sally Simpson" from The Who's "Tommy" was written about Jim Morrison. When The Who were playing on the bill with The Doors. Townshend wrote it about a real incident that happened during a concert as the Doors were playing, he was the one who helped "Sally" after she fell off the stage and gashed her face. I read it in Pete Townsheds book he wrote a few years back.

    U2's Until The End Of the World is not about two lovers as most people assume but rather

    Its a conversation between Jesus and Judas and then Jesus and Satan

    Tears in Heaven was written about Clapton's dead son. I bet none of you knew that obscure fact.

    Pearl Jam's Jeramy was written about

    Jeremy Delle ... On January 8, 1991, Jeremy Delle, a 15-year-old sophomore who had recently transferred to the school, killed himself with a .357 Magnum revolver in front of his second-period English class. He was described by schoolmates as "acting sad". After coming into class late that morning, he was told to get an attendance slip from the school office. He left and returned with a revolver. He walked to the front of the class and announced, "Miss, I got what I really went for." Delle then put the gun into his mouth and pulled the trigger.

    When asked about the song Eddie Vedder has this to say

    It came from a small paragraph in a paper which means you kill yourself and you make a big old sacrifice and try to get your revenge.
    That all you're gonna end up with is a paragraph in a newspaper.
    Sixty-four degrees and cloudy in a suburban neighborhood.
    That's the beginning of the video and that's the same thing is that in the end, it does nothing … nothing changes.
    The world goes on and you're gone.

    "Sunday Bloody Sunday" was initially spelled Sundae Bloody Sundae when Bono, who was enjoying a hot fudge sundae at Farrell's in Castaic, was punched in the face by the boyfriend of a girl who yelled "I love you Bono"! It also happened on a Wednesday.
