If Keith Moon hadn't uttered Led Zeppelin


Recommended Posts

Page, Plant & co. were considering names like The New Yardbirds, Whopee Cushions and Mad Dogs before the name Led Zeppelin was chosen. I feel that LZ is an appropriate name which conveys strength, aplomb and grace.

What would you have called this band?

how about "the best figgin' band in the universe" or "the greatest band" great choices in my mind but if we combine these names together we can get the best name give me a moment to think...............i got it......Led Zeppelin!

Wacko Jacko...or The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...

Robert Fripp is such an ordinary gentleman. Humble too.

We might have never had John Bonham if not for Moonie's errant suggestion. That had to have disappointed Jimmy with his lead balloon remark. " I'll show you Keith!! I'll get the better drummer in Bonzo and show you what heights we can achieve! Ha! And for you Entwistle, I'll also find a better bassist and you can stay with that twit Pete! " Roger that!

The name wasnt really important. Theyre music was so powerful and great that they could've called themeslve whatever they wanted it didnt matter what they called the band.

So agree...it's the music!!

Maybe why they where entertaining some silly name's as apposed to only the serious type of name.

Get people's attention with a freaky name and then hit a home run with the music when some one tune's in to see what it's all about. B)
