Recommended Posts

Well... the thread title was supposed to be 1976, not 1977, but anyway, here it is.

Thanks for posting that! It was an interesting read. The beginning reminds me of this story I was reading on MSN news today about all the fantastic musical acts that the Grammys more or less always snubbed. They talked about Zeppelin there.

Great Cover photo. I remember that issue. My only child was just 4 weeks old when that came out, and we had it laying around. I was home alot , with a newborn and all, so I remember it well.

P.S. It was my spouse who was a fan back then, not me.

I have a copy of that issue as well. I borrowed it from a friend and well...you know. I don't think he misses it to this day. He never mentioned it, even though he was a pretty big Zep fan.

Me too....only I took the cover off as I often made collages and stuff, and lost the magazine, but the cover remains.

One of my all time favs of the entire band.

Holy cow. That really jogged memories for me. Well, fragments of memory anyway.

The library in my junior high school had a subscription to People, and that issue was sitting on the librarian's desk. You know, BEHIND the check out desk and IN HER OFFICE. But I could see it as I walked in with the rest of the class.

Man, I wanted to get that mag. No one had not heard a peep outta the Zep camp for fookin' AGES at that point. We were STARVING for anything, and there was a COVER story! Woot, woot.

Well, I wasn't eggsactly chums with the librarian (I was with the French teacher, but that's another story - and a good one, too). So asking her to see the mag wasn't gonna get me what I wanted, I knew that much.

So I just walked around and TOOK IT. Hahahahahahahha. I didn't care. I saw the Mighty Zep on the cover, and mentally I wasn't even IN class anymore, hahahahhahahaha.

I went to the closest table and sat, kind of in a daze, staring at the cover. The rest of my class had gone to the study tables where we were assigned, seemingly 10,000 miles from where I was. I read the whole story, twice, in a few minutes.

When I looked up, the old gal was lurking over me with a DefCon Four scowl that I didn't see again until I told my wife that I paid $200 for front row seats at a Page/Plant show years later. Hahahahahhaha. She got over it. GREAT show!

When I sorta "came around", I apologized to her (the librarian, not my wife) for taking her mag without asking, sayin' something like "are you a Zep fan, too?"

She wasn't.

Man, she was wound tighter than an eight day clock.

I spent lottsa time in the principle's office in those days. <_<

Now, about that French teacher........
