My answers:

First a basic question, what is your name? - Anthony

How long have you been a fan of them? - since December 1991, so that's just over 21 years

In your experience as a Led Zeppelin fan, what has surprised you the most? - how much some fans have incredible detailed knowledge of things like gigs played, and gear used by the members of LZ. That, and the fact that Zeppelin played Hot Dog live during some of their 1980 dates!

Describe the most significant moment you experienced involving Led Zep? I think it was the moment I "got" it, which was one night, alone in my room with headphones, during the last moments of You Shook Me leading into Dazed and Confused, something about the music and the power of it and I went from thinking LZ were just noise to thinking this was the greatest thing ever!

In what ways has Led Zep influenced you? - Innumerable. As a some time musician, Plant has strongly influenced my singing, in terms of projection and clarity of vocal. Jimmy's playing has inspired me to take a stab at learning his riffs and progressions. Bonham has just trained my ear to great drumming, and just excited the snot out of me with his fills and style of playing. Jonesy's fluid and dazzling bass lines influenced me when I was a learning-bass player, and just their whole attitude of consummate skill but also down to earth love of music!! Everything!

How has Led Zep influenced others? - probably the same. They changed the face of rock music; whereas the Beatles gave rock an unlimited sonic palette, LZ refined rock music into a heavier, more powerful template that none have been able to equal to this day.

What makes Led Zep unique? - their eclecticism, their growth and progression from album to album, their unique power and ability to project such excitement on an emotional and professional level. Their range of interests and influences, their desire to travel to far-off places to fuel their inspiration. Their breadth of vision when it comes to the kinds of songs they were prepared to write and perform. I could go "on and on and on" to quote LZIII ;)

What songs are the best? Stairway to Heaven, Kashmir, Achilles Last Stand, Dazed and Confused, That's the Way (a personal favourite), Immigrant Song, Since I've Been Loving You, When the Levee Breaks, For You Life (another personal choice). Etc etc etc

How would you describe them? - combine everything I said above!

Have your ever met them? - sadly no, not even close, but would love to meet either Planty or Pagey before they make the great transition. I know Robert will be in my city in March this year.

--------------------------

I hope that helps you! :)

Some answers, been a fan since 1969, first saw them live on Liverpool Stadium 29 November 1971, have seen them live with original members 3 times. I don't have a favourite song as they are all great.
