1973 NBC News Broadcast Aboard Starship

Recommended Posts

I searched the archives for any records of any threads related to this and could not find any.

It is a NBC News piece about music on their national broadcast in 1973 and contains video from inside Zeppelin's plane.

I have seen snippets of the footage inside the plane before, but just part of it, never in its entirety.

I love the video from inside the starship. I've always heard of drinking and English pub songs with Jones on the organ on the plane but never thought I would see footage of it.

Apologies if this has been posted before.

I think this was posted here a couple of years ago. So I'm sure it's pretty far back in this section by now. Thanks for posting. Always good to see this footage.

I think the news journalist was jealous. Who wouldn't want to be a wealthy rock star,riding in a private plane and living a lavish lifestyle.

The video footage of Jimmy and Bonzo dancing was priceless.

I think they are too. That's my favorite part.I have it on DVD. I can't watch it now without thinking of Noel Coward. I have CD of him singing "I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside," which is the song they are singing. It's so fitting. :D Thanks for putting it here. :D

The NBC news story was posted on Youtube a few years ago, and it is absolutely hilarious to watch. The sound, however, was removed from it at some point, for some copyright reasons, if I remember correctly. I have it on my hard drive and watch it sometimes when I want to have a good laugh. The band must have known it was going to be a conformist kind of story about the decadence of rock stars, etc. as they really play the part .... "I'm a bit upset that there isn't a pool table here, but apart from that, I think it's the only way to fly". :lol:

Jimmy Page and John Bonham dancing arm in arm.

May that be the last thing I see in my mind's eye on my death bed seconds before I die.
