sponkster: turned down guaranteed 100 million dollars to do a Zeppelin tour
sponkster: I highly doubt Robert cares about money much. He had repeatedly turned down guaranteed 100 million dollars to do a Zeppelin tour.
Ooba Tooba: LEDZEPPELINSTOLEALLTHEIRMUSICFROMDEADB LUESMEN! Did I beat them?
Dahnkster: His previous release with Alison Krauss and T-Bone Burnett was really good, IMHO. I heard him live this year at New Orleans Jazz Fest and he was playing with a bunch of young guys and doing several Zeppelin covers. The guy gets my full respect for his career as an entertainer. He has totally knocked me out on several occasions. Those high notes are no longer in his range. I'd probably still go see at least one Led Zeppelin show, if they did ever tour again (So much fun during both the previous Page & Plant tours) The Honeydrippers thing was quite nice too, back in the day. His longevity is a real testament to his talent and popularity.[imgick.nola.com image 454x450]

thesharkman: I have a very cool story bro if anyone wants to hear it.
OgreMagi: Who's stuff is he stealing this time?
Dahnkster: thesharkman: I have a very cool story bro if anyone wants to hear it.I'd like to hear it
red5ish: I'm betting this won't be his last anything. At 66 he may not tour all that much, but musicians generally don't stop making music until they die.
Dahnkster: Wow, now that is the definition of CSB! That is indeed a VERY cool strory! Thank you.
