LED ZEP DID SOME WORK FOR CHARIDEE - BUT THEY REALLY DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT: You'd have to have a heart of stone to try and block a recording of you at the Most Famous Charity Event in the world appearing on the official DVD of the event, but Led Zeppelin don't care - they don't want their set on the Live Aid DVD. Apparently, they're grumpy about it because it was a "sub-standard performance" (not something that seems to have bothered any of the other participants). Of course, this preening is more than just empty cock-rock posturing, it's also totally self-defeating: the impetus to produce a proper DVD has been the circulation of unauthorised versions for the last few years, so it's not like anyone who was interested can't see the performance; besides, something like twenty five billion people were meant to be watching the programme around the world, so it's not like the Zep are trying to supress a stinking performance nobody would have seen otherwise. And besides, can anyone remember a time in the last twenty years when Led Zep didn't suck? Thought not.

Great work on your blog - it was very enlightening. You've got a lot of useful info on there about Led Zeppelin so I've bookmarked your site so I don't lose it. I'm doing a lot of research on Led Zeppelin Exposed and have just started a new blog - I'd really appreciate your comments
