A guy in St. Louis, George F. Blackburn, changed his name to Led Zeppelin II!
“I don’t want to appear to be some off-the-wall, drug-addict idiot,” he said. “I just changed my name from the standpoint that I can be a better person than I used to be.”
I think I would go with Trout Mask Replica.
The Dark Side of the Moon (43 Million Sold) or Led Zeppelin IV (37 Million Sold)?
Let’s see…yesterday, we had Jimmy Page’s manager, Peter Mensch, saying this…
“They decided that if they could find a singer that they thought would fit their bill – whatever their bill was at this stage in their career – that they’d make a record and go on tour… That’s what Jimmy Page does.”
That’s what Jimmy Page does folks. Today, Music Radar has Mensch saying this…
“Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn’t see them in 2007 [when they played a one-off reunion at London's O2 Arena], you missed them. It’s done. I can’t be any clearer than that.”
“They tried out a few singers, but no one worked out,” says Mensch. “That was it. The whole thing is completely over now. There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero. Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it.”
Don’t sugar coat it Mensch, how do you really feel?
Curious though, isn’t it? I mean, complete 180. This part is kind of interesting.
When asked what new projects Jimmy Page was going to be involved with in 2009, Mensch said, “Fuck if I know. I’m waiting to hear.”
That’s what Jimmy Page does…I’ll tell you this, I don’t think there’s a chance that I would pay a couple hundred bucks to see a Zep show, Plant or no but; I would throw down some serious cash to hear the messages on Peter Mensch’s iPhone from the last few days.
