dpat Posted November 11, 2015 Share Posted November 11, 2015 One of my all-time favorite Zep tunes, but always wondered a few things about this song:1) "Try it fryin' " refers to free-basing cocaine, correct? If so, Zep (in late 1975) possibly was on the forefront to know about this practice before it became common public knowledge of how to do that, I believe, in the later 1970s/early 1980s. Free-basing wasn't invented until 1970. [And, for you newbies, crack was not even invented yet]. And I only know this by what I read on The Internets -- 'cuz it never lies, correct?2) Was this song referencing (in part) a death that occurred at Page's house while they were on tour in 1975? Or was this just a rumor (the death)? If so, not much more is know regarding the tragic circumstances, is there?Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
