Guest Len B'stard Posted July 2, 2011 Share Posted July 2, 2011 (edited) I'm not the biggest fan of Led Zeppelin but I do like a few of their songs and i think maybe am on the verge of looking at all their other stuff again and seeing what they're about and all that and, just offhand i was googling and FUCK ME!!! Did they really get up to some of the stuff that they're said to've? I think i remember reading somewhere, i think Slashs autobio', that The Hammer of Thor or something? Anyway, some book about Zep is sort of like No One Here Gets Out Alive (book on Jim Morrison, i love The Doors) in that it's largely falsified in places but yeah, i mean, did some of that stuff REALLY go on? I suppose it's like the Moonie myths and all these other artists and what have you and i don't expect anybody on an internet forum is personal friends with Zep to be able to tell me if any of it's true but i mean there are like, in every artists case, stories that are widely accepted to be true or true to a point and stories that are considered a load of bollocks.So which is which? Are there any that any forum Zep fans can fill me in on please?And also, some of them seem like, really off key. Like, proper out of order, nasty stuff. I was reading an interview with that bird, the plaster caster one, the one who did all the rockstar nobs and she was talking about her expierience with Robert Plant in that regard and wouldn't like, relay the story, like they done something horrific to her. I googled around and i discovered that, apparently, someone weed on her. Things like Bonzo being physically restrained from raping some bird on an airplane and...i dunno, loads of other stuff really, it's almost like certain parties are afraid to talk about some of it. Now, as a fan, or an observer at least, of GG Allin and a bona fide fan of Iggy Pop and Stiv Bators and Keith Moon i consider myself like, not in a position to like...moralise and i wouldn't, i'm just interested, they (Zep') sound like a bunch of nutters. I mean i've read stories about like...rape and all sorts. Now as much of a dodgy bastard as say, Iggy or Moonie were, i don't think they'd do something like rape some poor girl. I always thought there was something comedic and circusey and fun about Moonie type debauchery.So like, yeah, what went on? Any cool tales to tell? And what on earth is all this about a shark and putting it in a womans cooch, how can you put a shark in someone?!?!?! Unless it was tinned shark? Does John West do shark? But yeah, any stories would be most welcome. My renewed interest in Zep' was kinda spurred on by my renewed interested in playing the guitar and, upon revision, you can't really slag off Page and Pages work in that fuckin band. That little breakdown bit in Whole Lotta Love where Roberts going off on one, followed by Jimmy fucking laying into his guitar is probably of one the most pleasing expieriences my ear has ever had.But anyway, yeah, stories please! I might just go out and buy that Hammer of Thor or Hammer of Gods or whatevers its called book just for entertainment value, even if parts of it is a load of bollocks.
