    When you hear Jimmy Page has died you are going to squirt across the room from the euphoria.

    Jeez...thought that was one of Page's children.

    So there's Page, pushing 80, dating a woman just past 30.

    Yeesh.

    I just think that Page is creepy.

    Ok adjust for different times and ok drugs booze and so forth some 21 year old guy in a band has sex with a 15 year old groupie back 40 years ago - it's not great but maybe no one should go to jail.

    Page had a 14 year old girlfriend in the 1970s when he was in his 30s for over 6 months who would be sneaked into the hotels through the back doors because they knew it was illegal.

    There seems to be a line in music which is so fucking strange, apparently Michael Jackson music is too good to be cancelled but Gary Glitter just doesn't have enough hits?

    To be fair I believe that pic is from some years ago. Maybe five years.

    But hey more power to Pagey. Rockstars can do that if they want to I guess.

    Iíve seen it all. I used to wait tables at a four star restaurant and the owner got really rich selling medical supplies and bought the restaurant for his trophy wife to run. Anyways I worked one of his private parties and the trophy wife was giving him a blow job at the table and it was his way of showing off. Quite demeaning but both he and her were pieces of work.

    Itís not uncommon to have old rich guys with young girls. Human trafficking is a problem in rich areas too. They busted a ring here a few years ago.

    Andy John’s said he quit working for Led Zeppelin because they did awful things to people. He didn’t go into details but he said he’s no prude but they just did stuff that was over the line.

    When that 2005 trial happened, I tried to do the math with Michael Jackson (or, rather, the pedo carbon dating) to suss out exactly when his first molestation incidents were supposed to have occurred and apply that to what music of his I could listen to: like, say, anything before that incident when he took Webster to the Grammy Awards was okay to listen to.

    Then I just said to hell with it.

    The weird part these days is seeing the amount of these online Michael Jackson advocates who are still hell bent on 'proving' that Jackson didn't do anything wrong and he was publicly crucified "just like Jesus"...oy vey.

    Bonham seemed like a psycho asshole when drunk.

    Both Page and Plant liked girls in their mid-teens.

    Maybe we are just getting old but some of the rock star stuff just seems like being a prick when you look at it.

    For example Ozzy and Sharon are in an expensive hotel, Ozzy is completely smashed falling down and a young waitress says she can't serve him because she has been told not to serve people if they are super drunk. Sharon screams at the hotel manager demanding the waitress is sacked and when the manager refuses to do it she takes a shit in the lobby of the hotel and they leave.

    This is Rudy Sarzo era so ok a while back but she's about 30 years old and Ozzy mid 30s - the mental image of that is not cool.

    I’m into ham radio and Adam Curry who used to do The Headbanger’s Ball on MTV is a ham. I kind of hooked up with him through the hobby and we have similar interests in things so we occasionally shoot the shit. He was telling me about flying to Moscow with all these bands on the same plane. On the way back Ozzy had pissed his pants and he’s standing up with urine soaked pants yelling Sharon! Sharon! He’s like holy fuck. I’m ready to land and get away from these freaks.

    Yeah. For me I always liked girls around my age. I had friends who got off fucking old cougars. I find old men with young girls creepy. Iíve been happily married 33 years so I appreciate long term relationships and building something together. I find buying a trophy wife stupid. Anyone with scratch can buy a young hole. Thatís easy. Much harder to build a real life with someone.

    Oh when you are young you think it’s cool rock stars can break rules and get away with it. When you get older you realize a lot of that is either staged or if it’s real they really aren’t getting away with anything. The cost of the damage comes out of their pay and they are just fucking up their lives. Also when the world was more conservative and prudish it was fun to shock the establishment. Now the world is so nuts I think people crave normal now.

    I appreciated Ozzy as a singer and that’s about it. It’s a family of misfits. The Osborne’s are the opposite of cool.

    Bill Graham said he promoted Led Zeppelin in the SF Bay Area. They wanted a big advance in cash and he knew this was for drugs but hey it’s rock and roll so he goes to to bank gets the cash and goes to the venue to deliver it. Backstage there is this kid breaking stuff and one of Bill’s assistants yells at him and makes him stop. Anyways the kid goes crying to daddy. Daddy is Bonzo. Some of the Zeppelin crew work over Bill’s assistant. Anyways Bill ain’t having any of it and it got nasty. Bill said the Led Zeppelin organization were a bunch of thugs. He said after experiencing that kind of shit in Nazi Germany he wasn’t going to tolerate it here. He used his influence to ban Led Zeppelin from ever playing the Bay Area again. Of course Bonzo died not too long after that and the Zep was done.

    When you have kids in your bed and you are serving them wine you are doing more than reliving your lost childhood. Mike was quite the asshole in many ways. His dad was a thug. Another screwed up family.

    Actually it wasn't Bonzo's kid, it was Peter Grant's kid. But yeah it got ugly.

    Oddly enough... Peter Grant got his start in music management working for Don Arden, father of Sharon Osbourne. So it seems like Arden inspired cunty management style all around.

    Arden and Grant basically were mobsters. Real pieces of work. Anyways Bill was a Jew in Nazi Germany and he said the Led Zeppelin guys acted like Nazis and it wasnít welcome on his turf.

    Promoters can be real pieces of work. Bill Graham was a tough guy who didn’t take shit but he wasn’t a thug. He cared about people. He just didn’t sell flesh for money. I’ve heard entertainers say good things about him.

    Anyways early Zep was good. They were good live in the beginning but then they got really full of themselves and self destructed.

    Cymbals & sticks are OK, but somebody give the man a drum, for fucks sake.
