Led Zeppelin

I can't believe I'm the first to make an entry for Led Zeppelin, only the best band ever! Did you realise they didn't release a single in the UK till 1997. Their recent live DVD release became one of the best ever selling DVDs, even now. I feel privileged to have been born at the right time so that my late teens/20s/30s and now 40s were spent listening to Led Zep!

    The mighty Zep, the music they made has been the soundtrack for over 32 years of my life. The experience of seeing them live was something way beyond my expectations, and unforgettable. Robert Plant has a real charm up on the stage, he knows what he has... and he knows how to use it. John Paul Jones, always somewhat mysterious...very talented and adorable. Jimmy Page...sigh, I honestly don't think the man knows how much he has contributed to music, and how much he is loved by his fans. And, Bonzo...a fantastic drummer. Such a shame that he gave his life for the excess of the time/era. Looking ahead, the Zep charity reunion for Ahmet Ertegun in November 07 will be something that fans have only dreamed about for years, the chance to have the band on stage together once again...to hear some of the greatest rock and roll music ever, with JPJ on keyboards and bass...Pagey on guitar, Plant on vocals and the mature and talented Jason on drums. Brilliant.

    My older brother introduced me to Zeppelin when I was still in grade school. I remember watching Song Remains the Same when it first came out. I was hooked as soon as they hit the stage. Sadly, Robert's son had just died. I remember standing in a long line outside our local record store waiting to buy In Through the Outdoor. I reached in my pocket and had exact change for the record. It felt like fate. I really thought I was going finally get lucky and see them live! My cousin had tickets for Knebworth but I didn't have the cash to get the UK. But then the terrible news. The thunder of Bonham fell silent that September. The dream was over. I still remember our local radio station playing unstop blocks of Zeppelin and old interviews with Plant describing how he and Bonzo joined the band. On my birthday, December 4th 1980, the band announced that "they couldn't continue as they were." In Rock history it would be a terrible year of loss. First Bonham, then Lennon. I offically hated the 1980's! Led Zeppelin will and still is one of the loose but tight delta blues rock legends of all times. I know people would like there music in neatly labeled boxes...Heavy Metal...Led Zeppelin. But if you listen to each of the albums honestly they were never boring or the same and they were NEVER HEAVY METAL!! Yes, they nicked some blues but it's want they did with those tunes that have us still talking about them today! Now, I wonder how many pop stars of today we will even remember what song they lipsynched 20 years down the road! See you all at the show in November in London! A whole lotta love from Cali

    I grew up on Zeppelin. Robert Plant was and still is my hero. I remember taking an A4 size pic into hospital when I had to have my wisdom teeth out and all the nurses were commenting "who is that?" and I replied the most gorgeous most talented singer ever to walk the earth....I still believe that now, he has not changed at all. I remember when Karac Pendra died and I wrote to Robert (I was 15 then) and he sent me his autograph back. I even remember when his second son Logan Ramirez was born and his daughter Carmen Jane. I never got to see the band live cos my Dad said I was too young to go to gigs but I will never ever forget zeppelin they rock!

    Blimey! Only the second person to remember the Mighty Zepp. Bands like Wolfmother are showing a great appreciation of all that was great about Page, Plant, Bonham and JPJ. Not afraid to admit or show their blues influences, they invented stadium rock. But don't listen to me, just buy the 1st 3 albums, put your headphones on, and let the aural delight wash over and enlighten you!
