  1. I was on the floor 30 years ago 10 yards from the stage in the center. Lots of pushing and shoving....Robert asked us to settle down after the first song, as i recall. Could look at the stage or the screen with a 30 foot tall Jimmy jammin'. Best rock show I ever saw....or ever will see! Would love to see the video appear. The runways were gone by the time the show started as 10,000 people were general admin on the floor. As far as the bidding on the Houston show I have No Quarter!
  2. Not sure if this is posted yet LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Once upon a time, the iconic lead singer of Led Zeppelin and the golden girl of bluegrass would never have been mentioned in the same sentence. Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's "Raising Sand" was an unlikely collaboration that won five Grammys. Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's "Raising Sand" was an unlikely collaboration that won five Grammys. But since they won five Grammy awards -- including album of the year for their surprising collaboration, "Raising Sand" -- their names have been inex
  3. I'm sure Robert would be thrilled if they promote The Band as Led Zeppelin! Thrilled all the way to the bank!
  4. They should get Sammy Hagar to sing for them.....They can go by the name Led-Hagar...LOL
  5. I heard an interview with Ringo once talking about a car ride with Bonzo back in the 70's. Apparently Bonzo was driving a Muscle Car and was pulled over for excessive speed. This was in LA, Sunset Strip I think. He took the cop to the front of the car and shows him the engine, explaining where it gets all its horse power and why it is so hard for him to drive it slower. Ringo indicated that the cop seemed to know who he was, and was impressed with Bonzo's knowledge of the car he was driving and let them off with a warning.
  6. If it wasn't for The Who this would be "www.thenewyardbirds.com"
  7. Webmaster post The Webmaster of Led Zeppelin.com put up a post about it.
  8. Now I think I remember JPJ is also playing Bonnaroo. How about foreigner? Then we would just need Jimmy to show up with a les Paul and they could join Robert on stage. or Join JPJ and do a quick hour or two set. Of course we all know that that is as likely as them showing up at a bar in Chicago (only the stones would do something like that) or playing on a roof in London! But we can Dream.
  9. I think it's great. I don't know how long it would take to load on dialup..."giggles" but nice artwork.
  10. I have saw Todd Rundgren in concert in 1977 and I saw Led Zeppelin in concert in 1977! The only thing I remember about the Todd's concert is him having a fit 'cause his guitar was out of tune. I saw both bands about 20 yards from the stage. Todd played for 6,000 fans and Led Zeppelin played for nearly 80,000. Todd Rundgren was forgetable and Led Zeppelin is burned in my brain. And if he wants to pick on Queen I saw them too.... in 76.
  11. Hmmmmmm, it says 1966-2007 for the years included on the top of the page and on page 5 it says, J.P. "The Big Bopper" The problem with that is he died in 1959 with Buddy Holly, who is not listed. They must believe that the word appearances include video of dead people.
  12. On September 24th 1980 I sent in a money order for two tickets to see Led Zeppelin for the second time, if I was lucky enough to get tickets before the show on the new tour sold out....but September 25th early in the morning i was baking bread when one of the high school kids that cleaned up after us came in and said that the Drumer had died. At first I thought he was he was lying but i soon realized that he was telling the truth. Several months later I got my money order back.
  13. That's NOT how it happened. Several fences were pushed down by the crowd and about 2000 of us were inside at about 12 pm! I ended up 20 yards from the stage. Now they might have put the fences back and order restored until 4 pm like that artical says but it was wild on the floor. Lots of pushing and shoving during the concert itself. Body Gaurds were keeping fans away from the stage with fists my best friend told me. I didn't see that myself as i had to stand on my toes to see the band as I'm short.
  14. My point was that demand has always exceeded supply with Led Zeppelin and it always will, and the bottle is open. I was lucky enough to see them in 1977 in Pontiac Silverdome with 80k fans and it sold out in a few hours. I was talking with the guy I went with yesterday and as we were about 20 yards from the stage it was an experience I’ll never forget. It was a different time and attitude as the place was filled with smoke, (not from Dried Ice) and big burley guys beat the crap out of anyone getting to close to the stage! I’d drive, fly or hitch-hike to NY or LA to see them again but
  15. Of course Fans are Greedy. Just do the Math! 20 Million People tried to get tickets. That means that one in a thousand got a ticket. I'm sure that if they had decided to have it at MSG another 20 million from this side of the pond would have tried to go. That is 40 million people that want to see Led Zeppelin in concert. If they went on tour playing a 50,000 seat stadiums in Europe they (based on the numbers) would need to play 400 shows to play for 20 million. And they would sell out all the tickets for all 400 shows the first week @ $125 = 2.5 B dollars. Add another 400 shows on this
