  1. I don't blame Robert for anything, and I just don't understand any "fan" that thinks he owes them something. I was first turned on to Led Zep when I was 13 years old. A month later, Bonzo died. Would I have loved to have seen them live? Hell yeah! Would I have loved to have been at the O2? Hell yeah! But I resigned myself to the fact years ago that I would never see them live. They were just a little before my time. I'm fine with that. It doesn't bother me in the least because there's nothing I can do to change it anyway. I don't walk around with a chip on my shoulder blaming everything on Robert. The man has free choice to do what he wants with his life. All of us do. It sounds like they put in a hell of a performance at the 02, but I agree with Robert, when in a vague not so obvious way, he told the world he was basically too old to do justice to the Zeppelin legacy on a nightly basis. If Robert feels he can't be authentic with regards to Zeppelin, then I don't want to see something that isn't authentic. And how authentic could any Zeppelin tour be without John Henry Bonham?
  2. For me, Jonesy had the best answer of them all. "Five years is like five minutes in Zeppelin time. I'm surprised we got it out quick as we did.": LOL
  3. From my perspective, I would love as much as anyone for Jimmy to release something new and become active again. But he doesn't owe me anything, and I don't expect anything of him. He has made his mark on the world and history. If he wants to retire, then the man has earned that right. And if and when he decides he wants to do something, I'll be the first in line to listen. Until then, I will be listening t0 Zeppelin and treasuring every moment he has ever given me.
