Who named Led Zeppelin and Why?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been a Zeppelin fan since 10 years old. I used to play their albums on the elementary school turn table. Teachers would sratch my records when they kept grabbing them off the turntable. I kept at it though. Got sent home...suspended all in the name of Zeppelin. Naturally the career I chose was that of a senior high school teacher, where I can blast my Zeppeplin whenever I want. I still get complaints from other teachers, but now they can't scratch my records and unless it's the Principal I tell them to leave, as the music is once again a crucial part of my lesson. Please, you are interrupting my lesson; i.e. F off and mind your own business.

the age old question. there are many covered stories on the internet about it. Accounts differ; for decades Entwistle claimed it was he, not Moon, who made the "lead balloon" crack. But history seems to favor Moon's version. here is the story from rolling stone magazine:
