  2. In the late 70's/early 80's there was a legendary record store in downtown Tempe called Roads To Moscow. One day I asked the owner if he had any more Zeppelin vinyl coming in and he began to look around nervously. He pulled out a milk crate full of boots and said "Don't tell anyone." That day I bought the original Destroyer. Six months later I stop in the store and every rack, and I mean every one, had been magically transformed to bootlegs. Almost all by Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and the Stones. And some Beatles. I bought the first two Knebworths. I took a break from buying boots, taken aback by the horrendous sound of the Knebworth lps. I was soon back on track after buying an amazing recording of one of the original The Wall performances. I do mean amazing. Soon thereafter I bought My Brain Hurts, Bonzo's Birthday Party, Montreal '75 (with cover featuring HR Giger of Alien fame, along with a an image of (I assume) Giger reclining next to one of his images. Bizarre.), and Bonzo's Last Stand. In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot. My life with Led Zeppelin. http://petedelorean.tumblr.com/
  3. Wow! Zero Dark Thirty isn't showing here yet. What did you like about it? Can't wait to see it. Did you enjoy "What Is And What Should Never Be" from Silver Linings? In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot. My life with Led Zeppelin. http://petedelorean.tumblr.com/

  6. I saw the same tour in Phoenix front-row center. With Tom Morello's new band. Loved both bands. I was surprised that NIN was opening. I discovered both bands in very dramatic fashion the same winter of 1992. In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot. My life with Led Zeppelin. http://petedelorean.tumblr.com/

  9. American Beauty is a wonderful album. I also lean toward more adrenaline-driven music but definitely appreciate this LP. I have been on a musician-memoir kick this last year. I read Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis (surprisingly good until the last 30 pages), Life by Keith Richards (excellent-the first 80 pages or so have nothing to do with the band-which I thought was interesting and pretty cool), One Train Later by Andy Summers (WOW! One of my favorite 20 books of all-time, regardless of genre, and I'm not the world's biggest Police fan), Not Dead And Not For Sale by Scott Weiland (ew), and Searching For The Sound by Phil Lesh, bassist for the Dead. The Lesh book is not that well-written, but the parallels between both them and Zeppelin are striking, particularly the toll substance abuse took once fame occurred and the tours and shows got bigger and bigger. I don't think it's either/or. There is plenty I dislike about the Grateful Dead, but American Beauty is stunning, in my opinion. In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot.
