charlton Posted December 21, 2007 Share Posted December 21, 2007 I am new to this forum, but would like to profess my love for Led Zeppelin. You see, I was raised the son of a country music star in Nashville Tennessee(look up Charlie Walker on You Tube, he is singing on the Porter Waggoner show "My Shoes Keep Walking Back to You"). My father was a legend in his respective career (Texas Honkey Tonk Country late 50's through the 60's), and I remember hitting the big string on an amped up bass guitar when I was 5. Dad always played vintage country, but I loved rock. It was a combination of hearing Black Dog, Ramble On, and Kashmir that sealed the deal. By the time I was sixteen, I had posters of only Led Zeppelin on my wall, a Les Paul, and a steady flow of marijuana in hand. I wanted to be a rock superstar. I went off to college, met my wife, quit smoking (weed that is) and now I am the father of a beautiful boy. I just bought him a Zeppelin onesy. Anyways, the O2 reunion has reset that spark and I am jamming right now to In My Time of Dying on my DVD of the Earls Court Show. I love Zeppelin and may my son always appreciate their contribution to music. Viva La Zeppelin!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
