RIP-IT-UP Posted January 13, 2012 Share Posted January 13, 2012 If you remember Jack Bruce's slagging on Zep/Jimmy after the O2 show, I ran across an interesting quote in Dave Lewis' book "LZ Celebration II". There's an exclusive interview in the book between Dave Lewis and Peter Grant from the mid-90"s and they start talking about the forming of Zep: DL: I interviewed Jack Bruce a few years ago, and he said he was asked to join Zeppelin? PG: I don't think so...no, I don't remember that at all. This is interesting, because I've never heard of Bruce's name being mentioned as a contender. If it was true, as close as Page and Grant were, it's hard to believe that Jimmy would not have told Grant. Also, JPJ was already "in", from very close to the get-go, so why would they ask another bass player to join? It makes one question Bruce's motivation, especially if he made this up; and it was he who mentioned it out of the blue, apparently, to Dave Lewis...Apparently, even years ago he felt a need to be "superior" to Zep Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
