    Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    My parents didn't allow rock and roll in our house. My father didn't have many nice things to say about rock and roll.
  4. It has to be difficult. I see how Ringo Star won't sign autographs now. He said he only has a finite number of days left and doesn't want to spend them signing autographs. I don't blame him. It does seem however that Robert is less happy with questions. He has never been my favorite personality, I prefer Jimmy's take on the music and the history. Jimmy seems to enjoy sharing more as he has gotten older, something I appreciate.
  5. Studio is a no go for me due to that confounded squeaky bass drum peddle. Therefore various of the live versions always.
  6. It must get tiresome for the surviving members of Led Zeppelin to have to answer these questions.

    The Trouble with Bonham. 1978-80

    Concerning Bonzo state of mind I think he just wasn't keen on doing another tour. These young men had been thrust into a whirlwind for 10 years and that takes a toll on people. Hard drinking and hard living are common in than life. Suddenly you are a superstar and that isn't a normal thing in real life, and many people do not deal with that well, so who am I to judge?

    Does 'Coda' Count?

    Some songs on Coda count very much. As an album it's reasons for being were different than any other album.

    Dee Snider Of Twisted Sister Puts Down Zep

    Drum solos had their day but their time had passed. I much prefer just listening to isolated drum tracks when available.

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    "King or Queen" of this or that I have never agreed with or understood. No artist who cares about the history of a genre would even want that label. Fats Domino, Carl Perkins, Count Bassie, Sister Rosetta Tharp, Ike Turner, T-Bone Walker, and so many more never get mentioned in these discussions and should. Elvis was a great talent, but he didn't invent rock and roll

    best album?

    LZ 1 Not so much because it was the best, but because it defined a paradigm shift at it's time to album oriented rock music. The fact that they made it the way they wanted and then the way the band took the world by storm within a short time is something many do not remember.

    Dee Snider Of Twisted Sister Puts Down Zep

    I wonder if Zep themselves would have dropped the drum solo at some point had they went on beyond the '80s? I think they may have, but we'll never know. It is what it is.

    Led zep film- TSRTS

    Could never see a full release, but a DVD documentary with commentary by Jimmy Page and interviews of other key people from the time might be wildly popular I would think. But I don't see that happening. Warner Bros might like that, but I assume other legal obstacles might exist.

    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    I once saw a used hand patched Led Zeppelin leather jacket like a flying tigers style in a shop in San Francisco for $75 and didn't buy it 30 years ago but now regret it.
