I love the title of the corresponding article:

Led Zeppelin: Unspeakable Practices, Unnatural Acts
The return of those whips-and-sharks boys to our shores bodes dire consequences.

I know. I've started to go through them now. nod And that shark story is different every time I hear it. Sometimes I read that it was all the members of Zeppelin involved, other times it's Richard Cole (tour manager) and that Zeppelin wasn't even there, and other times it's actually Vanilla Fudge doing the, uh, honors. lol

This one's a whole special issue on Zeppelin. Winter '80. Wow, this the year John Bonham died. sad

yeah, that story is all over the place, isn't it. Not only are the participants often changed, but so is the species of fish!

Which reminds me, how can the 1975 Creem readers pick Peter Criss over John Bonham as best drummer?

Yes, apparently it was a red snapper, and not a mud shark. nod

I've never read Richard Cole's book, but I've read snippets of it, and also the part about the red snapper where he claimed he was involved.

I've also heard stories from Robert Plant though where he said that it was the roadies doing the groupie, and all the Zep members and their wives/girlfriends came in to watch. I don't think anyone even knows if it really happened anymore. Even if they were there. lol

God, music really sucked before Punk.






















Actually, I did like Bowie, Zeppelin, Roxy, etc. But those were few groups as opposed to the many that would later emerge.
