1973 NBC News Report featuring Led Zeppelin footage

Recommended Posts

I assume most of you have seen 1975 NBC News report that popped up a while back featuring footage from Led Zeppelin's 1975 tour. 

Now making the rounds is yet another NBC News report...this one from August 1973. Ostensibly about the Payola scandal in the music industry, but really it is just another excuse for MOR America to look down their snooty noses at Led Zeppelin.

I was a Walter Cronkite kid myself, so I missed this report when it originally aired...but it cracks me up how the oldtimers always called them 'THE Led Zeppelin'.

I Started a thread about that footage a few months back, I'd seen it on a Sky Arts programme about the 70s.

Great to see them round the piano singing.

*1 Great to see the footage of the band singing I do like to be beside the seaside.

*2 Robert wanting the pool table (wonder if he still plays)

*3 Wonder if Mr Grant (and band)  was happy about the interview and the footage being used in this way.

All the Zep stuff looked highly staged. "Look as if you are having fun, guys." 

Bonzo does, however, have a drink in his hand. 

Maybe the Mob stole Zep's money in 73 though and this report was incredibly prescient.

I like The Led Zeppelin. Better than The Nobs. Would have been nice if they were billed as such, for a night.
