Was glancing at a set list from Saturday when I noticed that Dazed & Confused was attributed to Jake Holmes, not Page & Plant. This piqued my curiosity and I found this on Wikipedia:
Jake Holmes (born December 28, 1939 in San Francisco, California) is an American singer-songwriter and jingle writer who began a recording career in the 1960s. Holmes, who has a particular talent for writing clever, perceptive lyrics, is perhaps best known as the original author of the song "Dazed and Confused", later reworked by Led Zeppelin, and for composing the music to US Army recruitment jingle "Be All That You Can Be" for the words created by Earl Carter in the 1980s. The jingle and subsequent advertising campaign was used extensively by the US government throughout the 1980s. Holmes also co-wrote the "Be a Pepper" jingle for the Dr Pepper soft drink.
