  1. I agree, wikipedia should be boycotted: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/06/25/exclusive-pedophiles-find-home-on-wikipedia/
  2. Good to see people using a real encyclopedia and not that dishonest one called wikipedia, run by pedophiles.
  3. The article is essentially a personal attack on Jimmy Page under the pretext of 'alternate history'. The author is not a fan of the band, his musical tastes are listed elsewhere on the website, and his lack of knowledge shows. Maybe dazedcat would like an alternate history article written about him being found dead, no?
  4. A number of problems with that alternate history article and here are some major ones: "This led vocalist Robert Plant, bassist John Paul Jones, and tour manager Benji LeFevre to convene in late 1980 at Plant’s home in England to discuss the band’s future." It would never have happened. There would have been no band meeting to discuss the future without Page and Grant present. In 1980, the tour manager was Phil Carlo, not Benji LeFevre. "Page was becoming most despondent and more absent, often disappearing for days before showing up to rehearsals looking, as Plant later put it, “ragge
  5. Thanks Chris, Neil Daniels? That was the biography on Robert Plant which was panned for its inaccuracy. He didn't do any thorough research, eg still calls the band Hoobstweedle.
  6. Bloco or Scott, do you have any information regarding dates Plant worked for Wimpey in Birmingham? I've seen conflicting dates published, either in 1966 or 1967. Plant also worked for Woolworths in Halesowen.
  7. I agree with you Otto. I think it's unlikely it will happen. Maybe Roger might do one guest appearance on a Page track. Back in the 1970s, Page guested on Roger's song 'There Is Love'.
  8. Addressed only to Robert? Sorry to say it, but this petition is doomed to fail.

  12. He did not need to sell his rights though. Royalties are an artists 'bread and butter', even when you go broke or bankrupt. This decision was made in the early 80s when Plant deliberately distanced himself from that Zeppelin sound and look (before he decided to change back again with Now and Zen in 1988). If it wasn't for his solo career, he would be struggling. I don't believe he realised on how resilient the group brand is and that Led Zeppelin would go on to turn over revenue with reissues, CD sales, and box-sets. He doesn't get a cent in royalties and in fact has to pay the new owner of th
  13. We've so far had only Joe Perry's version on what went on. I'd like to hear something from Tyler for his side of the story. Obviously if Tyler is going off and leaving Perry behind, Perry is more than likely to saying something negative about it.
  14. MSG polls should be boycotted. They are rigged. They refused to listen to complaints about the vote, and to rub salt into it they then claimed after the poll that 'billions' of michael jackson fans voted when in reality it was a handful of IPs using automatic voting software.
  15. In the bookshop I frequent, there is a small red covered compilation entitled The Little Red Riders Book by author Steve Lamacq, published by Portico. A cursory flick through it to see whether Led Zeppelin was represented, and yes they were. Listed for their rider is 'An ironing board and iron'. No other references were provided for such a statement.
  16. Which poll are you referring to? The only poll still open is the 10 honourable mentions, with Jethro Tull, but there are no rolling stones in that one.
  17. Why take second? Michael Jackson's vote should be disqualified, period. Clearly cheating. If enough people complain their entire poll can be pulled.
  18. The main comments board was removed but the smaller decades comments boards still remain. They took down the main comments board when it was swamped with complaints after the 3rd round vote.
  19. Jacko fans are arrogantly claiming victory on the MSG comments board even though there is 8 days of voting still to go.
