I don't know what to say about it,
When all you ears have turned away,
But now's the time to look and look again at what you see,
Is that the way it ought to stay? - Led Zeppelin
I chuckle whenever I hear any rock critic mention that a new group reminds him of Led Zeppelin.
Sorry, Charlie. There's only one Led Zeppelin, the ultimate hard rock group that others will be measured to ... and ultimately fail.
I was intrigued by a report in the UK Daily Mirror that singer Robert Plant vetoed a purported offer of $800 million - $800 MILLION!! - for the survivors of the super group to re-form for a few concerts.
Two of the surviving members, along with Jason Bonham, were ready to sign on the dotted line for a few concerts and be flown on a private jet.
Plant reportedly tore up the offer, which is his right. He has denied The Mirror's story.
Still. $800 million?
Maybe an agreement could be reached for $100 million.
For that amount, the group could have taken the stage for one concert, tuned up their instruments and played "Stairway to Heaven."
They could have done "Back Dog" as an encore before departing on a private jet.
