I have a friend named Justin. Trust me. You ALL have friends like Justin.
One time he and another friend of mine searched youtube and found a video of what looked to me to be a Beatles cover band playing Stairway to Heaven, and they tried telling me (that because the footage looked old... and THEY looked old) that Stairway to Heaven was a cover song. This was presented to me as irrefutable proof that Led Zeppelin was a group of hacks and ripoffs, of course.
About thirteen seconds of searching and I discovered that it was indeed a Beatles cover band formed in Australia in 1996.
We weren't even drunk yet!
From then on out I kept a guitar tuned to Rain Song around, and whenever someone tried ripping on The Zep (a proper noun in this house) I would just play the song... the whole song.
I should say at this point that I don't own any Led Zeppelin shirts... I don't have any ZOSO tats... and I don't listen to The Zep around my friends. However, I CAN play a pretty mean Rain Song.
But liek serrously, dood! Slayer is ssoouuuu talented!
I drink Yuengling Black & Tan where I can find it. I drink Blue Moon where I can not.

been a good few years since I posted anything here. I'm just about ready to do the mod that UnklMickey, amongst others, helped me to understand all those years ago (though I need to read things again 'cos I've forgotten ). Sad news. He was a helpful and knowledgeable guy.
