    I picked up the guitar because of Elvis. I never want to put it down because of Jimmy Page!

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m still the biggest Page and Zep fan of all time, but Jimmy stole other people’s songs and passed them off as his own, and did so both brazenly and blatantly. That’s sure nice that he eventually compensated some for their work but only well after the fact.

    What’s the penalty for clickbait?

    Ha, yes. Serious clickbait. Although I think exposing the youngers to theremin has to be worthy of something.

    Check out the Album/Movie "The Song Remains The Same". I saw LZ in I believe 77 or 78' (recall dimished years) at the Forum in LA. 3.5 hours of words can't describe...

    LOL "I'm an enormous fan, but the shady thing the guy did LITERALLY FIFTY YEARS AGO (and repented for 35 years go) still defines him to this day."

    C'mon, man. If you want attention that badly, just start a tone wood thread like everybody else.

    What's funny is they always start their sentences like that, they have reaffirm to us how much of a fan they are first before they drop the hammer. Same goes with bloggers who go after comedians.

    "I have to start off by saying I'm probably one of XXX' biggest fans, I have seen all his specials and live shows. My problem with his jokes are........ "

    Maybe start listening to Greta Van Zeppelin, they haven't stolen anything I hear. You'll have a good conscience

    I hate Led Zeppelin

    I hate beer

    I hate guitars

    I hate little fluffy animals

    I have a difficult time telling the truth.

    1) They chose to plagerize blatantly, not cool.
    2) Jimmy was a sloppy guitarist.

    Pfft.
    I'm going to have some Led Zeppelin with my coffee before I go practice playing some songs by that bunch of thieving hacks.
    I'd love to be a hack myself someday.
