Hots on for nowhere

funny stories of led zeppelin

Recommended Posts

i read once that once they were all in a suite together just hanging out when jimmy took his "girlfriend" into the bathroom. about 15 min. later smoke began to come up form under the door. when they opened it jimmy had managed to start a fire out of a role of toilet paper on the bathroom floor...jpj was quoted as saying "jimmy was yipping like a little girl trying to put it out"

i also read once that they would often stay at a nice place in seatle where you could fish off the deck and once while richard and bonzo were sharing a room they were lying naked girls down and puting the fishes they caught in unmentionable places...that same night they had caught so much fish they just put then in the closet and the next morning the maid opened the closet to find piles of horrible smelling fish

There's a story from the Australian tour of 1972.

The boys were in Adelaide and anyone who has been there will know that the joint closes down about 9.00 pm or it did in those days. :rolleyes:

Anyway out of boredom the lads superglued the hotel furniture to the ceiling. :D

Chairs, tables (with crockery and cutlery stuck on too!), beds and anything else that wasn't bolted down.

You can imagine the maid walking into the suite the next morning! :o

Well, the wellknown Shark Incident....

Or The Dog Act:

Cole is stuffing a girl with fried bacon, but she still refuses to have any "interact" with him, so he convinces Bonzo do have sex with her. (She's still filled with fried bacon) Then Peter Grant comes in and dumpes a industrial size of Baked Beans over the two.

From http://www.anecdotage.com/index.php?aid=3459

In Memphis or Nashville, Robert got sick of police beating up the fans during shows, so he "did a Roger Daltrey swing with the mike, and hit a cop on the back of the head"

At Swan Song's launch party, they wanted to fill the pool at Four Seasons with swans, but Danny Goldberg could only find geese. The band was furious. "We all live on farms!" Robert exclaimed. "Don't you think we know the f---ing difference!?"

When Jimmy came to a Hobstweedle gig looking for Robert, he waved his hand at him & said "Are you the roadie?" Robert replied "We can't afford roadies." Jimmy said, "I'm looking for Robert Plant." Robert said "So am I."

Peter Grant once introduced himself to Bob Dylan at a party in Los Angeles. "I'm Peter Grant," he said, offering a warm handshake, "manager of Led Zeppelin." Dylan's reply? "I don't come to you with my problems, do I?" (Gotta love him...)

I heard another one, where JPJ starts something with a drag queen in New Orleans without realizing that she actually is a he....

That is the believed inspiration for Royal Orleans.."And if you take your pick, be careful how you choose it" and ..lots of other things in the lyrics

Good one eh

I still laugh at the thought of Peter Grant tripping and falling on Elvis's manager or something when him, Robert and Jimmy finally met Elvis.

Keep it going

That's less than hilarious all the way around, don't you think?

I just get a kick out of "Did a Roger Daltrey swing with the mike..."

But yes, the situation is rather depressing

I just don't get it--sorry to be a killjoy, but what the hell is funny about hitting a cop (intentionally or otherwise) or cops beating up fans? :huh:

The only good thing here is Robert really did care about the fans.

Exactly, he was acting out of anger--which makes the whole incident a long way from humorous.

Can somebody repost the Bonzo-pooping-in-a-shoe story here, haven't read that one in ages since I gave my Stairway To Heaven book by Richard Cole to someone a mighty long time ago.

Thankee Sai in advance.
