I think it was the Von Zeppelin heiress. When she found out they used the Hindenburg tragedy as the album cover, she was unhappy. The name of the band was "The New Yardbirds", which Page was the only remaining member of "The Yardbirds".
You might think I'm a heartbreaker, but that "too heavy" one wasn't on purpose. I was dazed and confused when I wrote it. I wouldn't want to take credit where no quarter's due. I don't know how many more times I could have fit references in (I don't actually know much about LZ). But thanks for the whole lotta love in your comment.
Anyway, I'd better stop before there's a communication breakdown. You can kashmir on the next meme - howbow dah! :-)
Only a fool in the rain, would hot dog about a black dog. Since I've been loving you with your submissions, I can't quit you baby. I'm going to California to boogie with stu. Maybe I'll see Moby Dick down by the seaside. :D (I'm a huge Zep fan)
In the evening, a living loving maid made me a lemon song. It was the battle of evermore to get over the hills and far away from her. So I headed for south bound saurez but she took all of my love. When the levee breaks from my tears, the rain song will play on my misty mountain hop.
The thing is, thats the point, they came up with that name when they first recorded, the recorder said "this band is gonna sink like a lead zeppelin" they arn't stupid, you just don't know their history.
