    Plant discusses his early days, saying: “Apart from Jimi Hendrix I had to keep clear of a lot of mainstream popular music, otherwise I’d have been running a nice boutique somewhere in northern England now. You could give up really quickly.”

    Asked about Black Sabbath he replies: “Who? They’ll go a long way and they’ll influence a lot of people in Seattle. Lovely, great, yeah. And what would you do without Bobby Goldsboro as well?

    “Bonzo and I thought we were pretty good and we used to bore the pants off everybody telling them we were. Those guys over there – Sabbath, if you insist – Bonzo used to tell them they weren’t very good.”

    We, as fans, take this shit way more seriously than any of them do.

    All those bands. Cream, Zep, Sabbath....they all knocked one another in the press.

    Perhaps the best line of em all:

    "Bonham had technique but he couldn't swing a sack of shit. The same with Moonie. If they were alive today, ask them."

    Certainly not a complaint though, because I think Astbury is criminally underrated as a vocalist and frontman.

    Such a badass.

    Hey I got one on you! The Doors of the 21st Century with Ian Astbury came out here and played a really small venue with a tiny stage. No one was sure why, but it didn't matter! Now, this wasn't the best show I've ever been to or anything, but Ian Astbury absolutely owned the place and OOOZED "rock star". You couldn't take your eyes off him. AND he absolutely slayed the vocals. Channeling Morrison might be the best way to describe it. I think due to the venue size and my close proximity to the stage, that stands out far and away as the greatest "front man" performance I've ever seen.
