    Pretty weird how they just broke up when Bonzo died and that was that. Except for a couple of times, the remaining three have not played together as Led Zep since then. They probably sacrificed some major earning years for their art. Although I doubt any of them are hurting for money.

    They hadn't toured or released an album for 5 years.

    It's pretty obvious they have left money on the table. I don't know if I would say "for their art" though. I would say due to douche bagness.

    I was underwhelmed by the reunion show they did a few years ago.

    They nearly continued after Bonham's death, they rehearsed and auditioned new drummers and came very close to asking Phil Collins to join the band.

    In the mid seventies they went to India and recorded some Zeppelin songs with a symphony orchestra. I hope Page finally releases it. It's the only unreleased gem not on bootleg.

    Screwing underage girls was a very hip thing among rock stars in the 70's. Page, Bowie, Jagger, they all did it. Bowie nailed Page's future girlfriend when she was only thirteen and Jagger nailed Mackenzie Phillips when she was twelve.

    all of that was rape--the age of consent in Cali was 16. As for Page, he kept her out of site until she turned 16.

    I saw Page on TV, it must have been in the '90s. He still had dark hair. Anyway, he could barely talk and his guitar playing was just awful. I thought he had totally burned out. I am glad he still has his senses.

    ...and I'm pretty sure Phillips was 18
