LOOK WHO’S BACK

December 29, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOk back to work. I was sitting around this past Saturday listening to led Zeppelin and started to think about why they won’t get back together also the same about Pink Floyd. Now in Zeps case everyone blames Robert Plant and they are correct in doing so. But why is Plant afraid of a reunion (and yes I did say afraid). Before Led Zep Plant was not a star nor had he recorded any songs. Page however had been playing with the Yard Birds along with Jeff Beck and had several recordings under his belt. Had Page not had Plant recommended to him Plant might be washing cars right now. Most of the music written for Zep was written by Page and John Paul Jones. Another point is if Plant dislikes playing with Zep why does he always include their music in his tour shows. Plant resents the fact that he will always be remembered for Led Zeppelin and not as a solo artist. I believe he has been out on his own refusing to do a reunion tour because he’s afraid he will never be able to escape Led Zep and he won’t whether he does the reunion or not. The Pink Floyd situation is the same with David Gilmore playing the part of Plant. The difference here was that Floyd had produced to successful albums prior to Gilmore joining. These super groups that helped change the history of music were destined to implode. The necessary genius to create and perform at legendary levels takes it pound of salt. This is Flounder, still grooving to Led Zeppelin, saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
