Fark Jimmy Page. That anal-retentive elitist keeps Led Zeppelin tunes away from anything fun or accessible, including rhythm games like Rock Band. All for "keeping the music pure". I suppose that's accurate, provided your use of the word "pure" is taken to mean "no new fans added since the late 80s". And people who learn Stairway to Heaven from the out-of-work Music major teaching them to play guitar don't count.

I thought John Bonham had already done that.

Good. The last thing I want to see is a bunch of old farts embarrassing themselves covering Led Zeppelin tunes.

Even his claim that people should learn to play the songs fails. Both Rocksmith and, to a lesser extent, Rockband 3 let you play with a real guitar.

I'd enjoy a Zep reunion if different musicians sat in for Page and Plant.

So just one guy is from the original lineup? How would that be a reunion?

What's Karl Lagerfeld doing with the Zeppelins?

I believe you are looking for the bands Kingdom Condom, or possibly shiatesnake.

I have to ask: When did Jimmy Page turn into a senior citizen of Indian origin?

Thank God! Led Zeppelin has been beaten into the frickin' ground. Every single one of their songs has been overplayed to death. They weren't that great to begin with.

Put it away and leave it there.

I love that you copy and pasted this same comment from the other thread as if it was some genius insight you were proud of.

There's a difference between whoring yourself out and realizing that these days people do more with music than just sit back and listen to it.

1) Why does Jr. Bonzo look the same age as the rest of the guys? 2) What ist he deal with the graphic design on the still in the video, with the zeppelin that says "Mothership?" I see that exact same color scheme EVERYWHERE the last coulpe years.
