Actually, LZ were quite big in the former communistic countries during Cold War. I had relatives in Romania and Slovakia and they bought their records on the black market. They really LOVED LZ. Unlike the people in western Central Europe who - when it comes to Classic Rock - were more into Deep Purple and, believe it or not, Uriah Heep... :'(

YEAH!! It's our new president! :D

and he really loves LZ, I heard about it not once ;)

Please keep us informed about him. He's got to be at least a little cool, I read this blurb today:

"Dmitry Medvedev, the former St. Petersberg lawyer with an impressive collection of Led Zeppelin vinyl disks, has taken office as Russia's new president, but he has yet to take power."

Ceausescu also enjoyed rock music, but I wouldn't call him "hip".

OMG!!! Medvedev at Zeppelin Forums!))) So cool & funny!)

I'm really proud that such a LZ-fan is our president now! And he really has a huge vinyl collection, it was even shown on tv.

Btw i'm pretty sure he attended O2 gig.

And... there are rumors that sometimes they invite guys from deep purple and other hard rock bands here for closed private shows.

But taking into account that Plant turnes down a £100 million tour offer, I don't think a one-off show or anything else is possible here, and no government money can help((

P.S. Inga May, maureen - it's really nice to see u here!!!)
