I don't drink kool-aid. Can't stand the stuff. And I'd like to be your friend. After all, we're all here because we love Zep. I love them as a unit as well as individuals. All this slamming Robert Plant and the name calling infuriates me. I've never seen any of the other members of Zep referred to in the derogatory fashion that Robert draws. It's immature and uncalled for. That's why I finally had to reply to a derogatory comment. We don't know what drives their motives and we don't need to know. It's really none of our business. I just want to enjoy all the music, past, present and future.
My guess is he wanted to distance himself from Zeppelin, as has been pointed out many times before, and what better way to do that than to sell the royalties. He wanted to make it on his own. It's a mental and self-satisfaction sort of thing. I'm stunned that a "Bong-Man Reefer Man" wouldn't understand this. What a dumb ass!
Hey, I love NASCAR (Jeff Gordon my fave driver)and Led Zeppelin (Robert Plant my fave)and I'm not a redneck hick! I also love the Indianapolis Colts, Boston Celtics, my 5 papillons, oh, and my husband too! Just a few of my diverse interests. I'd guess Ted Nugent, who I also view as a narrow-minded jerk, referenced Jimmy and wiping the slobber from his face to the times when Jimmy would have saliva trailing from his gaping mouth practically to the stage floor in one slobbery string. I actually have this filmed on some bootleg video footage. It seems the concert was in Brazil, but I don't remember for sure and I sure don't have time to look it up right now. It really was disgusting and I don't know what state Jimmy was in, but I certainly don't think it was a totally coherent state. But the music was still fantastic and Ted Nugent's talent can't begin to touch Jimmy's.
