  • 1970 - LZ scores another Top 10 and 2 solo Beatles releases make an impression.

    Looking back, 1970 was the year whereby I started to buy vinyl seriously. I turned 17 that year and started to drift away from sports, which had up until then consumed most of my leisure time. I became truly hooked on music and that passion has continued until this day.

        Did you ever read the reviews of Zep at the time? Some were positively nasty; no wonder Page avoided the press. They made big piles of money here, and had a serious run- really the model for rock star excesses with the jet, the groupies, the drugs, and the rest of the insanity.
        Somebody should do a compilation of all of Page's studio work pre- and post Zep- it's pretty staggering how many big hits he played on before Zep- some of it standard pop. He was a one-man Wrecking Crew.

          IIRC Led Zep didn't make any money until their fifth or sixth album such was their contract.

            That may have been true under the recording contract,I don't know, but they were taking no prisoners on the tours- Peter Grant pushed the limits on % of the gate. Remember when they had a big box of cash stolen from the Waldorf safe room? I can't remember if it was 125k or 250k, and that was what was stashed from a few nights of gigs if I remember right.
