Stupid Question About Robert

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a kind of stupid question, but I am wandering if anybody will have an answer. I have a bit of OCD, as we all tend to have traces now and then. Anyway, I came across several pictures of Robert like I have before, being a Zeppelin fan. Nothing really, they were all from different eras: some from the early 70's all the way to current day. But as I was looking I noticed that his eye color sometimes was blue, and then other times it was dark brown. I know that's pretty odd to pick up on, but... It struck me as weird. So I started scanning through other pics, magazines, my Zep DVD's, and found the same results: sometimes his eyes were blue and sometimes brown. Maybe I am crazy, or maybe he is just wearing colored contact lenses sometimes. I tried to blow it off, but the OCD thing kicked in and now for some reason it is bothering the hell out of me. Anyone noticed this, or have an answer?

Just so people don't think you're crazy, Mighty Zep, I recently spent a LONG time going through the "hot pictures of Robert" (there are over 100 pages!) section on this forum, and there are some photos where his eyes look brown, so I was wondering about the colored contacts too! I do assume his eyes are blue or hazel because in the vast majority of pics I've seen they look that way.

As for those of you who've gazed into his eyes in person, I'm turning GREEN.

His eyes are blue. Doubt he wears contacts as I've seen him either holding or wearing glasses.

I always wonder the same with Jimmy- the colour lenses. Sometimes his eyes look very dark brown, green or grey.

Gray...I beLieve in PameLa Des Barres :P she says it twice.

Why would any of them wear colored contact lenses? If you are looking at photos, eye colors often appear different, especially light colored eyes. It's really that simple.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that was confused!

I really noticed it watching the Led Zeppelin DVDs one day. In Albert Hall they look very bright blue, but at Knebworth they look brown/hazel.

It's weird, though. Changing blue/green is kinda normal, but not really blue/brown...

:huh:

in photos eyes don't regularly go from brown to green to blue.

I've come to a conclusion: He's The Golden God, he can change his eye color if he wants to!! :P

Red stage lights reflecting on blue and green will render brown. ;)

Disregarding the source of the "colored contacts" theory :P --I'm not sure such things were even available in the Zeppelin years.

Yes, colored contacts were available even prior to the Zeppelin years. I know someone who had them then.

It's in the Timeline. There's another pic as well. She was bringing Robert a leather horse saddle(?)

^great picture. I am jealous :) 

in some pictures his eyes look dark but I have always felt that the true color of his eyes is blue. I don't think he would have sang "Good times, bad times, You know I had my share, When my woman left home, With a brown eyed man, Well, I still don't seem to care" if he too had brown eyes :P

as for jimmy, his eyes seem to go from greenish grey to brown depending on lighting (if not black from having dilated pupils).
