This date.... On November 11th 1980. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

LED ZEPPELIN CALL IT QUITS!!

THE BEGINNING OF THE END.



1980: After the death of drummer John Bonham, the remaining members of Led Zeppelin meet on the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands, along with manager Peter Grant, to decide what to do next. All four men agree the band would simply not be the same without Bonham, and decide to split up. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

yeah-RIGHT! Evil or Very Mad
but what was even weirder
is page and plant ended up putting a band together
without jones
and they played zep songs onstage without him
(they just didn't CALL it "LED ZEPPELIN")

apparently plant and jones never got along
and would often end concerts in fist fights
with one or both of them leaving the stage with a bloody nose

(this according to something i read jones once say
in some interview somewhere)

and apparently he was pretty pissed off when he saw them up on stage playing his stuff without him

i have NO idea why they did that
except i guess page wanted to play with plant, one more time
(or he wanted to do live zep songs one more time)
and plant wouldn't do it if jones was a part of it
and it was easier to get another bass player
than to try and do those songs with someone else singing

i guess i can see the logic in that
hell
they coulda got ME to play the damn bass
and it woulda sounded the same
but i couldn't have SUNG the songs like plant

but
if doing the songs without bonham was deemed lame
doing them without bonham OR jones was kinda even lamer than THAT
wasn't it? Confused

they were honoring the name "LED ZEPPELIN"
and honoring the name of bonham
by not playing the songs under the name "LED ZEPPELIN" without him

but they were kinda DIShonoring jones
weren't they?

that's the way I look at it

i mean
they all three got together
and decided not to do LED ZEPPELIN

but THEN plant and page turn right around...
get together
and basically
DO LED ZEPPELIN
without jones Rolling Eyes

seems like it woulda been better to have just played the songs with jones
and called it LED ZEPPELIN

like THE WHO did
without kieth moon

hell
they coulda called it THE FINAL LED ZEPPELIN JON BONHAM MEMORIAL TOUR or something
