  1. Oh, yeah. Jimmy Bundy (Robert Plant talks about his early memories of Sun Records)
  2. Tell us, B-Bender, exactly what 'excuses' you are referring to.
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guVgk6k1vaE Never knew about this. Thanks, Thorzep.
  4. Thanks for sharing, Ledded. I laughed when Jimmy told the story about Peter Grant taking a picture of the crowd and then counting all the heads because he didn't believe what the promoter had told him.
  5. Thanks for sharing, LedZepDude. GTBT/Ramble On Stairway To Heaven Kashmir Whole Lotta Love

  8. All of these are so great! Andrew Denton did a great interview with Page and Plant where he played for them some of these Stairway Tributes. OMG, it's so funny. I like the pirates. At the end of the show Page and Plant in reply, play their version of Rolf Harris' song Sun Arise. Voila'!

  9. Here's a good one. Led Zeppelin Rumors Now Being Started By People Who Are Obviously Tripping The Idolator NEW YORK, 4:43 PM, FRI DEC 21 First we had Ian Astbury dropping not-so-subtle hints that Led Zeppelin would be touring, and that their openers would be his band the Cult. And now, even though Robert Plant appears to be booking 2008 with anything but Led Zep dates as fast as he can, it seems crazed fans of Polyphonic Spree/Tripping Daisy main man Tim DeLaughter are claiming that both of their hero's bands would be opening the tour. Ian, can you come out and at least try to help quell this misinformation? Because people are apparently falling for this. And they're also thinking that the tour will be renamed in honor of the reformed Daisies: The rumor got its legs on the Polyphonic Spree message board where one commenter said that a radio station in Boston quoted an anonymous "Boston area concert promoter" who said that there is a possibility for "Daised and Confused" tour that would join together Led Zeppelin, a reformed Tripping Daisy (with new guitarist) and the Polyphonic Spree. Some fans then recalled that during the Spree's holiday show Tim mentioned taking Tripping Daisy on the road again, though it's unsure if his comment was serious or not. Well, sure, a Tripping Daisy show or two would be fun. But as for the rest... seriously, Internet. Seriously. "Daised and Confused"? You're gonna fall for that? Because if you're gonna be that gullible, then whoever started this rumor missed a grand opportunity for LOLz when he didn't say that the tour would be called "The Houses Of The Hol-Spree Jaunt 2008."
  10. Wrong. It's in no way country western. First of all, the contractmusic article in the original post was nicked and twisted from the following Billboard article. Bonham: 'Time Will Tell' If Zep Keeps Playing December 18, 2007, 11:45 AM ET Gary Graff, Detroit Still buzzing from Led Zeppelin's reunion show on Dec. 10 in London, drummer Jason Bonham says he's the wrong guy to ask about any future plans for the group. "I'm still the new guy, and I wouldn't know," Bonham -- whose late father, John Bonham, was Zep's original drummer -- tells Billboard.com. "There's been no talks except to Jimmy (Page) and Robert (Plant) and John Paul (Jones), just to say thanks for the best Christmas present I could ask for. It really meant a lot to me." "Is it gonna be again? Don't be greedy," he continues. "You just take it for what you've done and be proud to be part of that. If they do it again, of course I would love to. But that's up to them. Only time will tell. If you'd have asked me a year ago, 'Are they gonna do a date next year?,' I'd have gone, 'No way!' So I was proved wrong once before." Bonham says that even a week after the show, the experience "still ... kinda feels surreal, like it never really happened in some way." But he does feel that the show, part of a tribute to the late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, provided some vindication after what he felt was a sub-par performance with Zep at the Atlantic Records' 40th anniversary concert in 1988 in New York. "I had to work at it, really prove that I could do it and not just say, 'Hey, I'm John Bonham's son. I should be doing it,'" he explains. "I put a lot of work into it ... listening to all the different live versions I had. You've got to earn this, 'cause there's a million drummers out there that would love to cut your throat right now and take over." "I'm amazed. I pulled it off," he enthuses. "So it's very special for me, just ... everything. If you'd have wanted a moment for everyone to get it right at one point, that was it." Bonham returns to his regular drum chair in Foreigner at the end of the month for a couple of shows in Florida -- where he and his family reside -- including a New Year's Eve date with the B-52's at the Universal Studios Citywalk in Orlando. That show will be broadcast live by Comcast's CN8 network at 9 p.m. EST. Led Zeppelin tour rumors continue to persist. The latest comes out of the U.K., where the group is reportedly considering a series of stadium shows. But nothing has yet been confirmed, and Plant has already begun scheduling late spring shows with Alison Krauss. ================================================================ In context, as you can see, Jason wasn't referring to 'fans.' He was referring to himself. Don't work yourself into a tizzy about everything you read. 98% of it is bull shit. You know how the media was in regards to Led Zeppelin back in the day. The only thing that's changed is the speed and breadth in which it's published. It goes viral in minutes. Secondly, it really is too soon to be expecting news of a tour when it's hardly been two weeks since the 02 gig. Tours take time to negotiate and plan. They're not going to announce anything half-assed. If they did, THAT would be rude. Whatever they announce, people are still going to be whining about it. Thirdly, Robert bashing will only make him more disinclined to tour with LZ.
  11. These numbers reflect the demand of a one-off show; a once in a lifetime event. Not to downplay the numbers, but would the demand be as urgent if an 18 month tour were announced? In any event, 20M people tried to get 'two' tickets. The demand was twice as much but doesn't change the impossibility to supply it. The 02 show was a charity event planned well before Led Zeppelin were even asked to perform. They did so at the request of Mica Ertegun to pay tribute to their friend and mentor Ahmet Ertegun and in honor of the Bonham family. How is that RUDE? I would say that you are RUDE for your ridiculous implication to the contrary. Nobody anticipated the 'demand'. Robert Plant is touring with Alison Krauss. Again, don't be RUDE. You're comparing apples to oranges. Consider this, Web. When have you ever in history seen millions of fans lining up to see any performer? NEVER, it's unprecedented. FYI, Led Zeppelin has never stopped making business decisions. And, I might add, there's much more to running any business than having a manager, a website and a myspace page. Is Led Zeppelin Hungry (Greedy) too? This is just too dumb for comment.

  13. For what it's worth: Daily Star WEDNESDAY, DEC 19, 2007 LED ZEP PLAN MEGASHOW 2 LED Zeppelin will definitely be touring next year and are planning a massive show at the Millennium Stadium. But the rock legends are waiting for all the fuss surrounding their reunion to die down before announcing dates. Robert Plant, 59, Jimmy Page, 63, and John Paul Jones, 61, were thrilled with the reaction to their one-off show at London’s O2 Arena last week but won’t play again until the second half of 2008. My source close to the Zep said: “Robert was overwhelmed by the attention but he wants the fuss to die down before doing more stuff with the band. It’ll be towards the end of the year now.” Talks Despite Plant announcing a separate solo tour with Alison Krauss, 36, the reformed rockers are looking at doing a series of major gigs across the world including at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. Venue bosses have admitted they are in talks with the band’s management about performing next year. Welsh Rugby Union main man Roger Lewis, who is pals with bassist Jones, said: “We would love to welcome Led Zeppelin and we have already put in a request to Harvey Goldsmith (the band’s promoter). “Initially, Harvey said they were only going to do a one-off gig but now they are considering a tour.” While further dates at Wembley Stadium and New York’s Madison Square Gardens are also rumoured, the Millennium Stadium is the band’s favourite venue because of its famous roof. Lewis added: “We are the only stadium in Britain with a retractable roof and we can guarantee a perfect event for 70,000 people.” We had to wait a long time for them to rock and roll, so we can surely wait a few months for the full tour.
  14. Crawdaddy! Led Zeppelin: What Is and What Should Never Be December 19, 2007 by Bruce Pilato On December 10th, 2007 the Mothership finally landed inside London’s O2 arena and 20,000 of us got on it for the reunion ride of a lifetime. The long-awaited “official” reunion of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones (the surviving members of Led Zeppelin) finally took place. Performing with them was Jason Bonham, son of the late John Bonham, the band’s original drummer. At 8:59 pm, the lights dimmed and the Mighty Zeppelin took to the stage for what was an unforgettable two-hour performance that featured 16 songs from seven of the band’s nine studio albums. With the exception of the never achieved reunion of the Beatles, an official reunion of Led Zeppelin has been the most sought after regrouping in all of rock history, and the demand for tickets to this “one-off” charity show staged to benefit the late Ahmet Ertegun’s Education Fund was astonishing, to say the least. Billed as a “Tribute to Ahmet Ertegun” (he died in 2006, at age 83, after losing consciousness when he fell backstage at a Rolling Stones concert in New York City), the all-star event brought together a myriad of stars, all of whom had been signed by Ertegun and seen their greatest artistic and commercial success while on his Atlantic Records roster. Over 20 million fans applied for the 02’s 19,500 available seats via an intricate lottery system designed to thwart scalpers. In the end, the scalpers prevailed to some degree, with one eager (and wealthy) fan paying a reported $160,000 for two tickets in the front row. The concert was so highly anticipated that the venue actually sold out of all related merchandise before the show began. It is estimated to have grossed over $12,000,000, which, after expenses, will be used to provide music scholarships for students in the US, England, and Ertegun’s native Turkey. “It’s kind of strange,” said Robert Plant, pausing near the last third of the performance. “I’ve been told there are people here from 50 different countries. I see a man in the audience holding up his young son with a sign that says ‘Hammer of the Gods.’ I can’t imagine people from 50 countries would like to see that,” he adds, laughing. “Especially so late in life.” But come they did, in all shapes, sizes, genders, and denominations. There were a remarkable number of Americans at the show (estimated to be nearly 40% of the audience), and for celebrity watchers it was a who’s who of music (and TV) royalty. Inside the arena, backstage, and at the concert’s VIP after-show party held at the venue’s trendy Indigo Club, scads of music celebs were visible among us: Sir Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Noel and Liam Gallagher from Oasis, Dave Grohl, Genesis member Mike Rutherford, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Marilyn Manson, and many others. The road back for Led Zeppelin was a long and arduous one that began 28 years ago (almost to the day), when they officially broke up on December 4, 1980—after John Bonham’s death. Since then, there has been an almost constant effort to reform the band and get back on the road. Led Zeppelin formed in the late summer of 1968, after guitarist Jimmy Page’s British Invasion pop band, the Yardbirds, disbanded. Page connected with bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, a successful session player and arranger, also looking for a new project. Page had asked popular Brit singer, Terry Reid, to join as vocalist but he declined, recommending instead his friend, Robert Plant. Plant, in turn, suggested Bonham, who had been in one of his teen bands. “I would see (Jimmy) around,” said Jones, describing how the band formed in an interview I conducted with them in 1999. “There was an article in Disc magazine, a music paper that said that Jimmy Page of the Yardbirds was forming a new band. That’s all it said. “And my wife knew I was going crazy doing sessions. She said to me, ‘Go, call him up.’ And I said, ‘You must be joking; I’ve got all this work!’ and she said, ‘Just call him up!’ So, I did. I asked him if he needed a bass player for his new band, and he said, ‘Yeah, fine.’ And then he told me he was going up to Birmingham to see this singer, who also knows a drummer. He said, ‘I’ll tell you what they’re like when I get back.’ And he came back raving about them. And that was it. “I knew that we had a really good chance, because it was just such a really good band. Page and I knew what were doing and we knew we had picked the right people.” Initially, they were to be called the New Yardbirds (and even did a brief tour to fulfill old Yarbird obligations), but when Who drummer Keith Moon heard about the band, he commented: “They are likely to go down like a lead zeppelin.” Loving the comment, Page changed the spelling, and Led Zeppelin was born. Managed by the menacing 300-plus pound Peter Grant (a former bodyguard and wrestler), Led Zeppelin quickly became darlings of the London music press, delivering spellbinding three-hour club shows that combined blues, folk, and world-beat music wrapped in a thick coating of hard rock guitar riffs. Soon, the band was in the center of a record label bidding war, with Ertegun’s Atlantic Records being the winner. The band’s first two records, simply entitled Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II, featured the incredible musicianship of the band members and are considered rock classics, yielding such radio staples as “Communication Breakdown”, “How Many More Times”, “Heartbreaker”, and the massive, worldwide hit single, “Whole Lotta Love.” “We did Led Zeppelin II while we were on the road,” says Jones. “It was like, we would have two days off and go find a studio wherever we were and we just cut it like that.” The band began to experiment musically with 1970’s watershed acoustic, folk-driven Led Zeppelin III.1971’s Led Zeppelin IV cemented their place in the pantheon of rock, releasing rockers like “Black Dog”, “Rock and Roll”, and the most requested and most played FM radio song in the US despite never being released as a single; “Stairway to Heaven.” Between 1971 and 1977, they were arguably the biggest band in the world, selling out stadiums and releasing one amazing album after another, including Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti (considered by many to be their best), and the apocalyptic Presence. By then, things with Led Zeppelin began to darken. Page was rumored to be a Satanist, and it was clear his dabbling with heroin had become a major problem; Plant was nearly killed in a car accident only to turn around and lose his five-year-old son, Karac, to a rare stomach virus; and the band was forced to take an extended break as the punk revolution took over in the UK and US. The band rebounded in 1979, with a brilliant performance at the Knebworth Festival, and in 1980, released another critically acclaimed studio album, In Through the Out Door. The band had just finished a brief tour of Europe and set up rehearsals in Page’s Tudor mansion before embarking on an extensive US tour in the fall of 1980. On September 23, Bonham decided to spend the night at Page’s after a drinking binge. He never awoke—he choked on vomit in his sleep. “I was often worried about him,” recalled Jones during our interview. “When he died, I was angry. We tried to help him many times, but people have to want to do that. It’s not the drink that kills you; it’s the accident that happens when you’re drinking. I know people that have lushed their way through life without a scratch. He just ended up sleeping on his back when he should have been on his side. It was as simple as that. It could have happened to anybody.” Shocked and saddened, Led Zeppelin announced it could not carry on without their friend, John Bonham, and officially broke up on December 4, 1980. The pressure to reform the band since has been enormous and often got in the way of the members’ solo projects. There were two half-hearted reunion attempts, one at 1985’s Live Aid, where Page, Plant, and Jones did five songs with drummers Phil Collins and the late Tony Thompson; and in 1988, with Jason on drums to close the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Concert at Madison Square Garden. “They were not very good,” admitted Plant prior to the London reunion. “At Live Aid, we played with drummers that didn’t know our songs…” Jones concurred, saying these mini-reunions did more to prevent a proper regrouping than not: “Well, every time we would do a Live Aid or big event we would talk about just maybe trying to work together again. But, the fear had always been that we don’t want to try something and it doesn‘t work.” Page did instigate a reunion of sorts, but only with Plant, when the two worked together as Page and Plant, between 1994 and 1996. "When we did [1994 MTV performance with Robert Plant] 'Unledded' we totally changed the format of the songs,” he explained to the UK’s Q earlier this year. “It was revisiting, but it wasn't a facsimile reproduction.” Page and Plant recorded and toured with a new band and 10-piece Egyptian orchestra, giving the old Zep classics a distinct Middle Eastern spin. Though commercially successful, the two caused serious damage to their relationship with Jones, who found out they were working together when he read about it in the daily newspaper. “No, they didn't call me,” he admitted. “I suppose they didn't have to. But they could have called me to tell me what they were doing. Or at least made it so I didn’t have to read about it as a reunion of sorts, because they had to know that people would call it a Zeppelin reunion regardless of whether that's what they intended or not. They might have just warned me that it would be all in the papers. To this day, I have no idea why they didn’t let me know about it.” eventually got to the point where Plant would not even attend the 2003 Grammys when Zeppelin (with Page and Jones attending) received the National Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The Ertegun tribute came together after more than a year of discussions and meetings with the Foundation’s Board (which includes Bill Curbishley; former Atlantic Records Senior VP, Phil Carson; Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Fame; and top UK promoter, Harvey Goldsmith, who actually produced the show). But according to Plant, it was Jason Bonham who wanted to do the show in honor of his father, who convinced him they should play together at least one more time. In September, it became official that the band would do the reunion as a one-off charity event to honor Ertegun and support his foundation. Rumors soon began to fly that Led Zeppelin was back and a world tour would be announced shortly. But, just weeks before the show, despite reports that rehearsals had gone well, Plant was still adamant that the show would be a one-time event. It only fueled the demand for tickets. “We need to do one last great show,” Plant told British journalist Allan Jones. “The past should look after itself. I go on, undaunted.” When asked why he won’t consider headlining a festival such as Glastonbury, where he could once again command an audience of 200,000, he was quick to respond: “I just wouldn’t want to do that. What would be the point? What would I get out of it?” When the show was postponed for two weeks when Page injured his hand, he issued the following statement: "I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks. However, Led Zeppelin has always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to." The expectations grew as the various members started leaking reports that the rehearsals were so good, it was now likely a tour may also be around the corner. Still, as December 10th approached, the focus was only on this one event and the foundation it would serve. “Ahmet’s charismatic bond with music and musicians was simply unique,” said Page a few weeks prior to the performance. “He had an uncanny ability to combine his love for music with the business of music, and doing so created a lasting legacy. Atlantic Records will always be the house that Ahmet built. I am proud to be associated with him.” “(Ahmet) was the epitome of old-school cool,” added Jones, “a man of rare wit and charm… larger than life… full of soul.” “During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord,” said Plant. “For us he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator—this performance stands alone as our tribute to the work and the life of our long-standing friend.” Backstage before the show, promoter Harvey Goldsmith said the band had been extremely easy to work with and were completely focused on putting on an amazing show. “Being much older, they’re very low maintenance now. They just asked for cups of tea and coffee. They have said they require very little now; they are completely focused and have been rehearsing. They know a lot of people have been waiting a very long time for this gig.” The show had begun two hours before Zeppelin took the stage, with a hodgepodge of appearances, mostly by artists that Ertegun had signed when he actively pursued the best British rock acts that flourished from 1967 through 1975. Among those performing one or two songs each were Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's Keith Emerson, Yes’ Chris Squire and Alan White, Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke from Bad Company, Foreigner (whose only original member is guitarist Mick Jones), and former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and his terrific big band, the Rhythm Kings—who also served as the house band for the first half of the show. And while the fans were treated to rock classics such as “Alright Now”, “Fanfare for the Common Man”, and “I Want to Know What Love Is”, it was Zeppelin they were waiting to see. The group took the stage at 9pm sharp and opened with the first song anyone had ever heard from the band when they debuted in 1968, “Good Times, Bad Times.” From there it was a Zeppelin fan’s dream come true: the best material from nearly every album. “Ramble On”, “Black Dog”, “Nobody’s Fault But Mine”, “No Quarter”, "Stairway to Heaven”, “Misty Mountain Hop”, and more. “I don’t know how many songs we recorded,” commented Plant later in the show, “but we chose to take songs from 10 different albums to make up this dynamic evening of music, knowing certain songs had to be there. This is one of those songs…” just then, bassist John Paul Jones started the opening notes to “Dazed & Confused”, and the audience erupted in a complete frenzy. The 10-minute version didn’t disappoint and contained Page’s trademark violin bow guitar solo. Visually, it was a dazzling performance that placed the band in front of a massive rear projection screen (as wide as the stage and over 50 feet high), which combined live-action footage of the concert in progress with psychedelic graphic images. They closed with a triple whammy: a stunning version of the cryptic classic, “Kashmir”, followed by two high-energy encores that included “Whole Lotta Love”, and "Rock and Roll.” And then it was over. The event fans waited nearly three decades to see has come and gone, but many remain hopeful for future appearances. Speculation involving a world tour has ensued for months, but conflicting rumors have Zeppelin fans the world over wondering what’s next. If they do indeed tour it will be a very welcomed addition to the already crowded concert season. Atlantic/Rhino Records has just issued an extensive two CD compilation of the band’s best recordings entitled Mothership, and Warner Home Video has just issued a brilliant remastered version of the band’s 1976 concert film The Song Remains the Same featuring 40 minutes of never-before-seen footage. All these events have further increased the demand for Zeppelin to return to the forefront of the contemporary music scene. Days before the show, Jimmy Page told a British paper how he felt about playing with his friends and what it would lead to: "It's great to be playing this music again with the people who lived through the creative process of its making. It's a powerful experience. It feels like the right thing to be doing." On Monday, December 10th, it appeared as though the entire world agreed. The Complete Set List: "Good Times, Bad Times" "Ramble On" "Black Dog" "In My Time of Dying" "For Your Life" "Trampled Underfoot" "Nobody’s Fault But Mine" "No Quarter" "Since I’ve Been Loving You" "Dazed & Confused" "Stairway to Heaven" "The Song Remains the Same" "Misty Mountain Hop" "Kashmir" "Whole Lotta Love" "Rock and Roll"
  15. Rock Legends Led Zeppelin team up with The Smurfs for Christmas Album The infamous rock band Led Zeppelin are to team up with the popular TV characters, The Smurfs, to record a one-off Christmas album. The album is to be recorded in a helium filled studio to maintain the classic Smurf high pitched voice effect. Father Abraham, smurfmeister, has teamed up with Robert Plant on lead vocals, Jimmy Page will be performing a harmony guitar part with Farmer Smurf, Papa smurf will be replacing the deceased John Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones will be playing keyboard and Harmony Smurf on bass. Some of the tracks from the album include: Dazed And Compressed Blue Dog Whole Lotta Helium Special precautions have been put in place to prevent evil wizard Gargamel from boycotting the recording by using his black magic to unplug the amplifiers. Jimmy Page comments on the Whole Affair: "I think this recording is going to be really good for our reputation and it will bring Led Zeppelin back into the charts with a high octave kick" The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.

  19. Teased and Confused Robert Plant’s 59-year-old hair doesn’t look all that different from his 19-year-old hair. By Aja Mangum New York Magazine Published Dec 17, 2007 (Photo: Henry Diltz/Corbis; Zak Hussein/Retna) Rick Wellman, Color director, Patrick Melville Salon Two words: double process! It’s well done. He resembles a hairstylist and not a rock star. The base color looks natural, but if he would’ve allowed more of the gray to come through, like in his facial hair, it would suit him more. He should keep up the highlights, but the base could stand to be closer to his natural shade. Carlos Vega, Creative director, Patrick Melville Salon His hair hasn’t changed in 25 years, bangs and all. The only difference now is that he’s using more advanced products. He probably used the Kérastase Oléo-Curl, the only product I know of that could tame his frizz. He definitely scrunched the product into his wet hair and dried with a diffuser; no air-drying. If only he used a curling iron—it would have been a lot prettier. Liam Carey, Senior stylist, Ted Gibson Robert probably used a firm-hold gel and scrunched to set, with a simple air-dry to achieve that defined, slightly crunchy masculine-rocker-chic look. He is putting Rod Stewart to shame with this do! If he could turn back time, he could do Cher! For a more bouncy, fuller look, he may do the diffuser-scrunch combo. James Vides, Stylist, Sally Hershberger Downtown Robert definitely uses a wave- enhanced shampoo and conditioner to relax his curly locks. After washing and carefully towel- drying his hair, he puts in a curl-relaxing cream in order to tame the fly-aways and to create the perfect curls. He takes his diffuser and carefully scrunches every section of hair until the hair is completely dry. For the finishing touch, Robert takes small pieces of hair around his face and curls them with a one-eighth-inch curling iron. Michael Foster,General manager, Ted Gibson His hair should obviously be a salt-pepper mix; look at his beard. He has a base color of ash brown, with most likely a foiled highlight. * It’s a fabulous rock-star look that says, “I don’t care, I made my mark. I can do what I want!” Valery Joseph, Salon owner His curls are a body wave, [with] layers throughout. Hair is blow-dried with a diffuser, so as not to frizz the curl. Then, a small-barreled curling iron is used as needed, but some of Robert’s strands are simply curled around a finger. Finally, a nice curl cream is scrunched throughout for all-tour hold. Rodolfo Valentin, Stylist and salon owner Robert Plant definitely has a perm. I call this the mucho-mousse-and-gel look. He used a diffuser; if not, his hair with that perm would look like something out of Lion King. Since he’s known for having long, golden locks for decades, I’d suggest that he try some extensions. He could have a mane of hair like he did in the sixties. *
  20. Thank You! "We came, we saw, we kicked ass!"
  21. Oohh ... That's a great, innovative idea, Rover! Might be worth emailing the powers that be; another incentive to buy the DVD, more funding for the AEEF and another first for Led Zeppelin. Thank you, Kire70. Kashmir was awesome, too.
