Madonna and the Zep

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that Madonna (yes, the Material Girl) had a liking for Zeppelin and their music.

And, Robert and Jimmy also had a "fondness" for the London-ite lady...

Anyone know how true this is?

Check out the video of the 1995 American Music Awards, where JPJ accepts an award on behalf of the band. The camera pans to the crowd and you can see Madonna say to her friend, "Which one was he?"

Aww poor Jonesy! I just bought tickets to Madonna today. But after that comment from her, I may have to return them.

Really!? That seems mighty ignorant of her IF she is a fan!!

Let's face it, Robert and Jimmy are recognizable world-wide by every music fan and musician, Bonzo is no longer with us, so that leaves John Paul...by process of elimination she should have guessed - at the very least! Stunning.... :blink:

omg, and she is supposed to be a musician? please. i cant stand madonna, i mean some of her songs were o.k., but she is far too egotistical for me. she could ( and should ) take some lessons in self respect from our boys. and some music lessons wouldnt hurt either! :D

I remember reading a long while ago (in the 80s) that Jimmy Page had somewhat of a crush on Madonna and that he'd like to meet her...

I wonder is that was when she was going through her raunchy S&M phase, when she published that book, "Sex," heh heh heh heh.

Indi.

A few years ago I read that Madonna had started learning guitar and was concentrating on trying to learn Zep songs.

He was the one who she asked to produce her album, and he said no... ;)

Well I know George Harrison worked with her on that god-awful movie Shanghai Surprise, and after that he vowed never to work with her again

From a Larry King Interview:

Cites musical, dance influences

CALLER: Hello, Madonna. My question is who were your musical and dance influences when you were growing up?

MADONNA: My musical influences -- wow. They ranged from Karen Carpenter to the Supremes to Led Zeppelin. Those were my musical influences, and...

Thankfully she hasn't covered any Zep vis a vis Don McLean's American Pie.

I don't know the answer to the original question but John Paul Jones WAS in a group called Mutual Admiration Society...ahem.

I saw Robert at Hammersmith Palais a few years back, and after a typical strenous performance he was puffing and panting a bit.

He said something along the lines of "I bet Madonna doesn't get like this" (i.e. because she mimes).

I like a couple of Madonna's songs, but hold a bit of a grudge against her...she pioneered the mega-expensive concert ticket a few years back, which was swiftly taken up by the Stones and a whole slew of other bands. Admittedly £125 for Zep last year wasn't cheap, but at least it was for charity.

Her latest stitch-up is a top price of £160...for Wembley Stadium, not even for an 'intimate' gig.

Given the current economic climate, I really hope this backfires on her, but I'm sure there will be thousands willing to shell out a day's wages or more just to see her from half a mile away....

i'm not a madonna fan, but i don't think she mimes.

all the other sauces seem to but i believe she doesn't, or didn't used to.

wouldn't swear, but there ya go...

Wasn't there a story about Plant, Page and Clapton standing together backstage at Live Aid and Madonna came through escorted by her security guards?

Apparently they were telling everyone to get out of their way and they got to the trio and said "move it guys, MADONNA'S coming through." Our heros all stood still and Clapton said "you must be joking."

Led Zeppelin would never be billed second to Madonna, period.

She could only hope to be a back up singer / dancer for them.

As if that was ever going to happen!

I somewhat respect Madonna though, because for someone who is obviously rather untalented, man, she's gotten bloody far...

I mean she's gone from being a back-up dancer for Patrick Hernandez to the world's biggest selling female music artist...and she can't even really sing, she's an okay dancer, nothing special, you would never have said she was beautiful or sexy (smutty and slutty, for sure), she doesn't even really write her own music, or she's got a team of people to help her...

The one thing she was good at though, was getting attention. And that paid off for her big time.

agreed. another kylie minogue. cant sing , cant play an instrument, cant write songs, but there they are selling millions of cds. it makes me angry. all they are good at is, as you said getting attention. imo the two of them should have just been porn stars and be done with it. after all thats closer to what they are good st, just look at their video clips. say no more.

Madonna is the strangest phenomenon of pop culture. i mean, her music isn't exactly good ( we're talking about POP music...) and I thik she even cannot sing very good!

And SHE is in the ROCK'N'ROLL hall of fame! Can you imagine!?!?!

OK, calm down lucy... Sorry but I get angry about this.
