TO THOSE WHO CAN'T BE THERE

Recommended Posts

From one who will be there with my bruv:

For all of you who:

Have been transported by the Battle of Evermore

Have played air guitar with Jimmy

Have sung along with Robert

Have played rhythms with the eternal JB

Who have mimed JPJ's opening to Your Time is Gonna come

Who have loved to Led Zep One

Who have turned up the volume when the crashing chords of Dazed and Confused have come in

Who have been the whole band while joing in dangerously driving your cars

Who have embarrassed your children leaping around to Communication Breakdown

Who have started, and re-started and re-played Since I've been Lovin' You to make it last longer

Who want Kashmir to be the last thing you ever hear

Who have ever queued overnight for tickets

Who feel like going to the O2 and pressing your ears to the concrete

Who have bought a magazine because of another retrospective angle on the boys

Who know, simply know that Zep fit together better than any other band

Who know the boys fill up all the spaces and go right to the deep hearts core

Those of us lucky enough to be there will be thinking of you too, and saying a whispered prayer, and giving the boys the kind of reception that will make them want to tour for you all.

and for all of us there I hope each minute seems like a lifetime.

Much Love

Cheers I hope the concert is all it should be, I wish I could be there but have just started a new life in N Zealand,Can't be too bitter as I was at both Knebworth shows I was 17 then. By the way I have just watched most of Earls Court and Knebworth highlights on You tube.Made me feel a touch sad at missing this [devestated]

Philosophical,

Thank you SOOO MUCH for such a beautiful message to us. Fucken ay, I am seriously crying right now. I had this lump in my throat the whole time I reviewed some of the other threads about people receiving their bands today, and then I stumbled across this thread and that was the straw that broke the camel's back. It hurts so damned much to not be there for this historic event.

Sigh, I sincerely hope you have a great time! :)

Thanks, from all of us who are not going to be there :(

Convince Jimmy, John Paul and Robert that, with your applause, yells and screams & even 27+ years later, Led Zeppelin are not dinosaurs and still have an incredibly loyal fan base(that are all waiting and hoping to see this day continue)!

:thanku:Your post is like a breath of fresh air. The board has reached a new height of idiotic {cough teaforone} insanity in your absence; trust me, you haven't missed out on anything here.

You've got heart man. :wub:

I hear you, same here. :D

Thanks very much iceberg!!!! I saw the boys many times back in the day in the good old USA, including the disasterous Tampa riot. There are so many folks like you who missed out on something so wild and reckless that it can't be described in todays world. Think of us during the theramin solo!

HI:

It's @ 10:30 where I am right now in Canada..it should be @ 4:30 in the UK...ohhh..the time draws near....

This a.m., the Canadian network, CTV NEWSNET, had a feature about the reunion ....

It showed some pics from earlier gigs, as well as, them playing and singing a few phrases from a couple of tunes....it also told of the reason for the reunion...the report was respectful and most interesting...especially the shots of Robert!!!!!

I'm so excited for all of us who share the anticipation and excitement of today whether we are there or far away...

Juliet

Thank-you Philosphical...I meant to add this earlier....
