What famous metal/rock song was written at 1am in the white room at John Lennon's house featured in the video for "Imagine?" (Hint: not a Lennon or Beatles song, think more metal)

I put a huge hint in the question itself.

The only thing that comes to my mind from a clue in the question is "White Room" by Cream but that's not very metal! :P

Ok more hints then:

It's from this band's first album to go platinum in the USA. Since then they've had 4 others go platinum (one of which went 2x).
They're currently in the music news. That should really narrow it down. Plus the huge hint in the question itself gives away which song it was.

Just so I understand the question,
Are you saying some other metal/rock group went into John Lennon's house & wrote this song at 1 am?
And while these guys were writing this song @ 1 am. someone was filming & put it in John's video, "Imagine"?

Hehe yes and no.
I'm saying the song was written in that (famous?) room at 1am. The whole album was recorded in that house.
Maybe the way I worded the question threw people off, sorry.

A few more hints:
The song was a top 40 hit in the US and top 10 hit in the UK.

Well British Steel was actually recorded at Lennon's former estate. So I imagine that it's probaby a Priest song from that album :wink:

You got it.
Priest were recording British Steel in that house. Tipton had his Marshall stack set up in that room (the white one with the piano from the Imagine video). 1am he's playing that riff when Halford comes downstairs from the bedroom and complains that he's trying to sleep and they write the song right there on the spot.

I've heard both tell the story, most recent being Tipton telling it on the Jim Breuer radio show.

Ok, this might be either real easy for some of you, or real hard for others:

Which world famous progressive rock songwriter has had parents who narrowly escaped the holocaust?

No sir.... good guess, although I don't know if Tommy Ramone is jewish.
But I do know that The Ramones is not quite the "progressive" rock band we were looking for....... I bet your next guess will be right on.....

Think: Trio.......

(Hint: It's Neil Peart's 'next door neighbor'.)

:shock:
Oh my GOD, you guys! You're going to get it through process of elimination!

Alex Lifeson's heritage is Czech I believe, or Serbian, or something.

Well, there's only 1 left........
