Neanderpaul “Son Of Get The Led Out” Thursday Tidbit

(Photo Courtesy Of Billboard.com) I can’t possible imagine what it would be like to be famous. Or, even related to someone famous. True story…I’m*told* I’m related to Maury Povich & Connie Chung. Apparently, one of their nieces, is married to one of my cousins. So…in a “Royal Family-type” connection, I’m their nephew (?) once-removed (??). That’s about as close as ... Read More »

Neanderpaul “Get The Led Out” Nugget O’ Knowledge

(Photo Credit: Rolling Stone) Time…changes everything. There was a time when Rolling Stone Magazine would tear into Led Zeppelin with every review, of every move that the band would make. Then, they realized how popular the band was among their constituency. They realized their readers…the folks who spend their dollars on Zeppelin records, might just want to buy a magazine, ...

Neanderpaul “Get The Led Out” Tidbit

(Photo Credit: Neanderpaul’s Music Room) You’ve heard me occasionally mention how cool it must have been to be contemporaries back in the day. You know…Zeppelin, hanging with the Stones.

No. It was…The ... Read More »

Neanderpaul “Get The Led Out” Fun Fact! Jimi…not a fan.

(Photo Credit: Neanderpaul’s Music Room!) It’s fairly well-known that Led Zeppelin & Vanilla Fudge toured together on the band’s first U.S. tour in 1968 (Zeppelin opened…imagine *that!*). Former Fudge-drummer (giggity!), Carmine Appice has long been a source for the verification/refuting of many a Zep legend. Given the recent mud-slinging between Keith Richards and Jimmy Page, I wondered what kind of ... Read More »

Neanderpaul “Get The Led Out” Tidbit: It costs a fortune to use Led Zeppelin in movies

(Photo Credit: Wikipedia) Saw the preview for the new movie, “The Big Short.” It looks pretty cool. But, they snagged my attention with the huge “When The Levee Breaks” groove. It got me thinking… We don’t hear a whole lotta (see what I did there?) Zeppelin in films. In fact, other than the goof up (intentional?) in “Fast Times At ... Read More »

WHAT GREAT BANDS ARE NEAR THE END?

Photo Credit – musictimes.com Photo Credit – heyreverb.com Photo Credit – Randy Johnson It is an interesting time to be a fan of Classic Rock.  I’ve been enjoying this music ever since I could operate a phonograph or cassette player. And it seems as though as a lot of our most cherished artists are slowly either pulling away from massive ... Read More »
