  1. Give me a break. I love what Zeppelin was, not what they have become (or at least one of them) and yes, when Robert comes to town, I don't go to see his show. With the response to O2, it is hard to understand how any band or band member can see such a HUGE demand and just say, oh well, sorry to all the fans that made them what they are. Without the fans, they are nothing and certainly could not live the luxury life that Zep fans have paid for.
  2. I think John would be honored for Zep to tour with his son on the drums. Robert = ego. The John Bonham thing is just an excuse.
  3. Like many in this forum, I have been a Zep fan for decades. At the age of 50, I realize that I may never see a show billed as Led Zeppelin. The lucky few that saw the O2 performance, are in fact, the lucky few. While many here, continue to hope that the band members want to satisfy millions of fans, the reality is, hold-outs may prevent this from ever happening. I applaud the The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, KISS and Aerosmith for staying with their old and new fans. All continue to entertain their fans and perform to this day. Fans made these bands what they are and they continue to deliver absent ego's. Nothing is more important than the fans that made each and every band and band member what they are today. Bands and band members that no longer entertain their fans certainly do not deserve to have this fans support. I will always love and listen to Zeppelin tunes. However, I cannot come to terms with millions of disappointed fans. There is no logic.
  4. Dear Robert, I so respect what you are doing on your own as an artist, very good stuff indeed. My regret is that a whole new generations (specifically my kids) of Zeppelin fans have been born now and they crave the musical talent of those who made them fans. They need musical direction, they want to see real talent, they want to hear new music from the greatest Rock and Roll band ever. They do not want the rock shows of today. They want raw, powerful, rare, meaningful talent on a stage showing the rest of the world how it should be done. They want the unmistakable connections that you, Jimmy, Jason and John share on stage. They want the power of Zeppelin back at the music forefront guiding what seems to be a senseless industry with only random greatness. Can you imagine an event so big the world would have to take notice. Zeppelin headlines a rock and roll resurrection show that includes Aerosmith, Matalica, and any other band that you feel came set the stage with raw talent, drive, innovation and a kick-ass Rock N Roll attitude. Can you imagine the money that could be raised for charities. Establishing the direction of Rock and Roll, helping good causes, satisfying fans globally and forever cementing Zeppelins legacy as the undisputed best Rock and Roll Band ever. My God, what a life dream to be able to help put something like this together, to see the appreciation from the fans, the see the reaction from the musical industry that is lost in itself and do not know where to go next. Robert, you and Led Zeppelin have more power, more control, more influence, more talent, more professionalism than anyone in the industry. You could literally walks over anyone to make it the way Zeppelin fans want it and the way Zeppelin wants it. Come kick my ass in Memphis, TN and show us how it is done. Come show Elvis's home town what he wants them the see - a leader that can sustain Rock and Roll the way if was meant to be sustained. Come rock our worlds and the worlds of our children. Robert, you and Zeppelin are the only group that can do this. Make it right, give to the fans, make it bigger than it is. Come ROCK MY MIND, BODY AND SOUL. You know this is true, what are you afraid of. Why won't you take this leap of faith? We are waiting for you. We need Zeppelin, We want Zeppelin. We need you. We all want to rock again to new stuff from Zeppelin. It is up to you. We all love you Robert. Please don't turn your back on us!!!
  5. While Robert is doing his bluegrass thing and the other Zeppelin members are trying to pull something different together, AC/DC is touring to sold out arena's and satisfying the fans that made them what they are today. The fans are happy and grateful. AC/DC seemed to be having a great time on stage and the show simply kicked my butt. Thanks AC/DC for letting me experience your legendary musical style covering old and new material. I saw two Plant and Page tours that covered most of the Zeppelin songs, but I cannot say I have been to a Led Zeppelin concert. How sad.....
  6. While Plant's lack of interest continues to be disappointing to Zeppelin fans - equally disappointing would be a Zeppelin album or tour with another lead singer. It would be AWESOME to hear new music from Jimmy, JPJ and Jason, but maybe under a different name. I certainly would go to this concert if it ever happened. At 48, I have just given up on any remote possibility that I or my kids will every experience new Zeppelin music or a live show, so I enjoy what's there.
  7. A year gone - what a waste of time and talent....
  8. He has made his choice and I do hope he is happy. However, I can still be disappointed with his choice along with the other ba-zillion Zep fans. On a side note, I remember posting a message a while back about ZEP calling up Jason in place of his father and doing a show. I also remember some of the folks who live in these forums basically telling me it would never happen because of some karma related reason, to stop raising topics that have already been discussed over-and-over again and that I was a newbie. Next: London 10-12-07 Now I post my Dear Robert thoughts. While most of the replies have been great, I noticed that my post is somehow now in the Led Zeppelin Newbies forum. I want to thank some of the non-newbies for putting me in my place and helping me to understand my position in the Led Zeppelin universe.
  9. Finally - a straight forward answer about Plant being selfish. When you reach the next level of your BS journey through the musical time and space continuum, you are going to realize the space continuum that you are in is Zeppelin.
  10. You are very correct, no one owns him. He can do what he wants, when he wants and how he wants - no doubt. However, that does not change the fact that millions of fans would appreciate experiencing the Zeppelin side of the great Robert Plant. He may in fact choose never to grace a Zeppelin stage with his presence again and that is his choice. However, as a Zeppelin fan, it is disappointing to me to think that he would make that choice. His choice - Yes. My feelings - Yes. Neither is right or wrong - they just are.
  11. Dear Robert, Regarding your interview that was published in the Village Voice, I would like to point out that your gig with Led Zeppelin is what allows you to do what you do today. "For me, I just want to do stuff where at the end of the night, I can turn and look at the people I'm working with and go, 'That was not just an achievement—it was one of the most heart-rending experiences I've had." What could possibly be a more "heart-rending experience" than a Zeppelin tour and making MILLIONS of Zeppelin fans happy? What could possibly be a more "heart-rending experience" than a new Zeppelin album? What could possibly be a more "heart-rending experience" than a Zeppelin tour that would allow you to sing your butt off for the Zeppelin fans that have given you so much in your life? What could possibly be a more "heart-rending experience" than a Zeppelin tour that would provide an example of true talent for todays musical artist to strive for? I admire your work with Krauss and all of your musical endeavors outside of Zeppelin as I am sure other Zeppelin fans do as well. However, Zeppelin fans deserve a show of appreciation from you and the other remaining Zeppelin band members. Take a moment and MAKE a "heart-rending experience" by saying THANK YOU to Zeppelin fans that have given you so much. Love you man, but it is time for you to bring it on home. Robert, millions of fans are waiting for the "heart-rending experience" that only Zeppelin can provide. I look forward to one day having my mind completely blown at a Zeppelin concert.
  12. Who is the man with wings in the Swan Song Logo? No opinions please. Only facts if you have them.
  13. I can image Peter and John just wondering why it took so long and why are they not touring..
  14. I just do not understand how Zeppelin can be so good, so popular, and so respected in the musical world yet continue to deny their fans of their music. As much as I love Zeppelin music, for many years I have felt cheated. Peter, Robert, Jimmy, Jason - Love the music, respect the band, own all your albums and remasters. So lets just get on with it, TOUR and rock your fans into another dimension. anolte Memphis, TN
