  1. I happened to be listening to the Classical station WRR as I drove home from my first shift job. At the top of the hour they gave a brief summary of new highlights. And they did indeed announce that the drummer for the rock group Led Zeppelin had died. I remember the sense of darkness I felt that night, as sat sulking in my apartment living room. The grey Led Zeppelin inflatable blimp that I had hanging from the ceiling was later spray painted black. I wanted to listen to the local rock radio coverage that night, but the dweebs that worked there were only good for reading the intros and outros for the songs that the Programming Director had selected for them on a daily basis. They were incapable of deep though or reflection, nor would the radio station powers that be, have allowed them to divert from the station's format of songs and advertisements only. Such was the state of corporate rock radio in Dallas in 1980.

  4. I never knew that Robert was a big alcohol drinker. I still don't think that he was. He's not your average heathen. Yes, most average heathens, if they know anything, it's alcohol in copious amounts, first and foremost. Their fans too. But for me, and I guess Robert too, it was never about the alcohol. Actually, most people are drunks first, and just look for music to go with their drunkary. For me, it was music first, and, then later I looked for stuff that would best accentuate the music. Wasn't alcohol. But, I know that stereotypes are easy to come by.
  5. Only his hairdresser knows for sure !!
  6. Tesla -- If only all YouTube Videos were uploaded with this quality!!
  7. Sorry, this is not about the details of "Sex, Drugs, & Rock'n'Roll" My Question is about the details of the preparations for a show, mainly on the '73 - '77 US Tours. So, on the day of the show, after the band members awoke for the day, and bathed/showered, was there a hair stylist that worked with Jimmy & Robert, or did the boys "do their own hair" ?
  8. I have a Question about the Starship and the Road Crew 1973 and beyond: When Zeppelin left to go to a show, I assume, that the road crew, for the most part, was not traveling with the band on the plane to get there, but was already in the city of the concert, and after each show, the road crew traveled by bus to the next city, and stayed in some Hotel or Motel, while the band, after each show, flew back to the city that they were using as a hub at the time. Also, as a side Question, in the early tours, '68-'72, did the road crew always stay in a different hotel than the band?
