The gist of the story is LedZep and some other rockers in a Seattle hotel, a female groupie, some fish ...and I'll leave the rest to your imagination.(And no they didn't have a nice seafood dinner!)

Ok...so here's the details on Mr. Plant.
First of all...no mud shark questions allowed. In fact when entering the contest online, you had to submit a question, and as it turns out the 10 winners were selected based upon their questions. The station narrowed it to 35 and sent them to Plant's management, who selected the 10 winners. So you had to ask the question you won the contest with.

So we go backstage, and 1 at a time you go up to Robert, shake hi hand and ask your question...the contest was cvalled "Robert Plant face to face", and it was an accurate title, he was standing out in the picnic area backstage, and when you got your turn, you were literally 8" from him. So I asked my question, which went along the lines of "Of all the songs you've written or co-written, which do you think is the closest to a 'perfect' song?"
He gives a lengthy answer, naming 2 songs, Kashmir and The Rain Song, talking about being in India with Jimmy page, and how rock and roll should encompass the whole rainbow of emotions and life etc. Very cool 2 minutes.
He also took a well received swipe at everybody's favorite band, Creed, when someone else asked if he heard any Zep influences in today's music. Something like: "I heard Creed's latest song the other day and it sounded quite familiar", with an obvious tone of sarcasm. They recorded it on DAT, and are supposed to send us acopy on CD with some bonus tracks not shown on the VH1 storytellers.

As for the show: He did about 5 songs from his new album, 3 Zep tunes; Going to California, Four Sticks, and Babe I'm Gonna Leave You; and alsoTall Cool One from his solo catalogue.
The Who then came out and blew the roof off the pavillion at the Tweeter Center. If they're coming to your town...go. They have set the bar quite high for the best show of 2002, and the Stones and Bruce have their work cut out for them to top it.

ZOOTB: What did you think? We sat in section 6 row H, good seats.

All I can say is "Wow". I was definitly blown away. They kicked some serious ass. I would highly recomend people to see them. And I thought Plant was excellent too. Kinda got a lump in my throat. I mean I was listening to Zep when I was 16 years old, saw "The Song Remains the Same" at the movie theater when it first came out, and now I was actually sitting there hearing "Going to California" live. I just couldn't believe it. It was also by far the "loudest" concert I had ever been to in my life. A good loud tho, they sounded excellent. Well worth the price for this one......

Very cool..The guy is a legend, but damn, he doesn't look too good. My question would have been, "Do you feel okay?".

Thanks for your help Gina...you rock.

And yes OOC, he does look a wee bit old these days, but still quite the presence on stage.
