Robert Plant Didn’t Ruin It For Anyone | An excerpt from A Musical Education: Stories in the Key of All Right
Some of you may have come across this story before. It’s a true tale of meeting perhaps the biggest and most influential rock stars of all-time, Robert Plant. Click on the above link to read it. Here’s a taste:
You go to any bar, club, or even the local library, and ask someone, “Hey, do you like Led Zeppelin?” and your responses may run the gamut from: “They’re the greatest rock band of all-time” to my personal favorite, usually uttered by a younger female: “Yeah, he’s OK”, but nobody says: “They suck and I f-ing despise them.” I may have met a few people in my life who didn’t like Led Zeppelin, but I can’t remember them precisely because they admitted to it. Thank you all for sparing me the trouble of getting to know you and finding out later that you are a bunch of complete jackasses. You cannot like rock music and not like Led Zeppelin. It’s like saying you don’t like the taste of fresh, clean water. They are rock music.
