    Now that I think about it...I’m not so sure Led Zep Beats Queen in a fight.

    Bonham does beat Taylor...as Bonham was crazy (not Keith Moon crazy, but crazy enough), lol.

    While you might scoff at this...Freddie had boxing experience...but Plant is bigger, so it’s even there.

    Jones vs Deacon...well, Deacon is the youngest of them all...I’ll give it to Deacon.

    So the score is now Led Zep 1, Queen, 1...both with a draw.

    The tiebreaker...May towers over wimpy Page...plus his brain is so much more advanced, that he will device a black hole...and not only have Page sucked in...but the rest of Led Zep too...

    I’m putting Bonham against May right away. No way am I having singer vs singer, drummer vs drummer, etc!

    I think Bonhams crazy might cancel out Mays intelligence. I’m thinking kind of like a Joker vs. Batman vibe.

    Plus Jimmy Page has black magick on his side.

    This should really be a comic book or something, now that I think about it....

    John Bonham has been reincarnated as an 8 year old Japanese girl...

    Hector, that's assuming a sober Plant in the Mercury/ Plant bout right? Freddie could be smart about it and get him plastered first.

    Freddie one punches every member of Zep. Doesn't even break a sweat. No contest.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Queen stole the show that day from everyone. So Zep wasn't even in the running.



    but what came AFTERWARDS was very interesting...



    What’s the real story about the secret rehearsals you, Page and John Paul Jones reportedly held with drummer Tony Thompson after Live Aid? How far did you really get in forming a new Led Zeppelin?
    We had a week together with Tony Thompson. This was the following January, ’86. The guy who’s now my tour manager was brought in to look after the drums, to help Tony Thompson leave Heathrow Airport and travel to this secret destination.


    Where was this secret destination?
    Isn’t it crazy? “Secret destination.” It was just off the motorway near Peter Gabriel’s house in Bath. We took a village hall, filled it with parachutes to take all the angles and corners off the room and set up the equipment. Pagey duly arrived, and we plugged in. But as much as he wanted to do it, it wasn’t the time for Pagey to do that. He had just finished the second Firm album, and I think he was a bit confused about what he was doing.

    And the interesting thing is that after seven years of being without him and fending for myself, I’m a lot more forthright. When I reach a conclusion, I immediately react to it. Way back in the old days, this might have taken a week of mutual discussion. One person couldn’t make the decision for four people.

    Did you have serious, or at least cautious, hopes about what you could accomplish?
    Yeah, I think so. But it wasn’t to be. There was this little club we used to go to in this little town. Tony was a celebrity because he had played on Belouis Some’s hit record. So he was invited to parties and stuff; we were, too, because we’d been famous once. Jonesy and I often chose to walk back to the place we were staying, at two in the morning. Pagey wouldn’t come out, which is hardly the way to get everything back together again.

    Meanwhile, Tony became a celebrity and was metaphorically earned around on everybody’s shoulders. He ended up in one of these small minicars with five other people. They took a corner too fast and ended up in somebody’s basement, went off the road, through some iron railings and down a few steps.

    So I was called at five o’clock in the morning by the Bath Royal Infirmary by a rather short-tempered matron saying, “We have your Mr. Thompson here. He states you, Mr. Plant, as next or kin.” I said, “But you can’t do that. He’s black!”

    So after arguing about him having African descent, I went there, and Tony was lying in the hospital going, “Oh, man, oh, man.” So that was the end of him.


    Did the band actually get any playing done?
    Yeah, we did about two days.

    What did you play? Did you have any new material to start off with?
    No, nothing. It was the most bristlingly embarrassing moment, to have all that will and not knowing what to play. Jonesy played keyboards, I played bass a bit.

    It sounded kind of like David Byrne meets HŁsker DŁ, I guess, sounding good and quite odd, because of Jonesy’s tendency to play these jolly rollicking keyboards, Jimmy cutting right across the whole thing with these searing, soaring chord mechanisms and me plotting the routes on the bass. It was pretty good. And there were two or three things that were very promising.

    Then Tony left the road with his merry band. One of the roadies, who is now my tour manager, played drums. He was quite good too, but the whole thing dematerialized. Jimmy had to change the battery on his wah-wah pedal every one and a half songs. And I said, “I’m going home.” Jonesy said, “Why?” “Because I can’t put up with this.” “But you lived with it before.” I said, “Look, man, I don’t need the money. “I’m off.” For it to succeed in Bath, I would have had to have been far more patient than I have been for years.

    if only MAGUS had it together, it would have flown!! Saw Tony years later with Paul Rodger (Reeves Gabrel & Tony Franklin) at Buddy Guy's club and he was incredible!!!
