    I was driving to class this morning and I flipped on the closest thing to a rock radio station that NE Ohio has, 97.5 WONE. Anyways, they just get done playing "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zep. and they say how great Robert Plant was at the State over the weekend. They say how great he looks. Then, out of the blue, one of the hosts says something to the effect of, "Yeah Plant really does look good for being pretty old, not like David Lee Roth." Then they said how poor Dave looks today and how his face looks like "it's stretched so tight that it's ready to fall off..."

    This totally dumbfounded me. I'll be the first one to admit that Dave needs to change up the ol' wardrobe and drop some of the schtick, but I don't think anyone can say that Dave's physical appearance is lacking. I hope I'm in that good a shape when I'm as old as Dave! I wonder if this was a nationally syndicated show, or if it was just a local morning show. Anyone else up in NE Ohio hear this?

    Didn't hear the show but here's my take. There's no doubt that Dave is in excellent physical condition. Hell, I wish I was in as good a shape as he is. But his face looks pretty rough and the combover doesn't help it any. Age catches up with everyone and it has caught up with Dave in his face and hairline.

    And let's not forget: Robert Plant has never looked worse in his entire life! His face has blown up more than Jimmy Page's!

    Yeah...

    AND his latest cd is VERY DISAPPOINTING. I was so pumped up for it. One or two of those songs are okay, but a WHOLE ALBUM of that shit? What the hell was that crap?
    [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    One good line from it is :
    I don't mind dyin' but I sure hate to leave my children cryin'
    Kinda bluesy.
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    It's a shame Dave's face looks the way it does, because he sure as shit worked his ass off to be this athletic at his age.
    At this point though, we have to stop for a minute and take a look at ourselves.

    HOW THE FUCK DO YOU LOOK?

    Now THAT was a terrible idea!!

    Dave doesn't look that bad at all. Take a close up facial photo of most people his age and I doubt he'd stand out as looking that bad. And though I work out, I've NEVER been in the kind of physical shape he's in right now, so he's got my props for that. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Age and being in shape is what happenned to Dave's face. Someone who is thin and older will cause the skin to stretch. I'd rather have that then have a face that was blown up.

    Dave has a great body. If I had the chance I'd give him a makeover and turn him into a 9.5 atleast.

    Dave is in excellent physical shape considering his age and his lifestyle. The same is true for Sammy.

    The only thing Dave really needs to work on is his hair. I'm not sure what, exactly... but SOMETHING, please.

    go back to his "Vegas days" hair cut [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    short and brown

    that long ass bleached out shit is just scary [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    too bad Dave doesn't have a decent website with a message board, we could go over there and beg him to fix it.

    meanwhile he walks around with that crazy shit and his 'yes men' say "looks great, Dave!" [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Hell - The hair looks good, whaddaya want- Dave to go out there like these skinhead wannabe rockers of today? Not me - No Way-
    Dave is in GREAT shape- and I really don't see the age like some do in his face- the dude looks fucking great for his age, and in WAY better shape than 90% of the new bands combined.

    The reason most DJs are DJs is that they are too ugly to be on TV, so I would bet this guy has no room to talk.
