    Phil Collins screwed up on drums, Page was pissed, walked off stage and gave him the royal bird.

    (I wasn't around, I was overseas in Korea.)

    Maybe Page was also stoned out of his gourd and just didn't have leadership abilities.

    Fast forward 1988 Atlantic Records Madison Square Garden. No one in audience had heard of Ahmet Ertegun. As Ahmet received his award on stage the audience collectively booed. Plant was pissed and didn't want to do Stairway. Band opened up, and after Page's iconic Danelectro had sat all day under hot lights it was desperately out of tune. Opening Kashmir was piss poor. Song is custom tuning, so it's not like an E standard, either.



    I was fucking there!!

    think about it.

    All of 1970's Led Zeppelin DOMINATED the industry.

    John Bohnam's death is, in fact, symbolized by the downfall of the Hindenberg.

    1980's Led Zep, or what remained SUCKED. "Oh the HUMANITY!!" Zep I album cover symbolized and forecasted their demise.
