Kings Of Rock ! cough.ripoff...cough.ripoff...cou... Part Quarto.

















video video

With all da controversy over Lady Antebellum ripping off The Alan Parsons Project I thought I'd just Spin an old web. It's a good web so? ...

So Here's The Story About The Supposed "Kings Of Rock".


Now after five years, I finally have found web pages that shows proof positive that what I wrote about years ago. It's the ugly truth about this rock quartet.


I'm am also borrowing pages from  "Nash The Slash's" web site...






In the late 60's and the early 70's their was 3 huge bands "The Beatles" , "The Rolling Stones", and a new kid on the block "Led Zeppelin". I was a fan of all three and so were all my buds. These three bands controlled the teen world. Who knew at the time where the lyrics and music they made really came from? We kind'a knew the "Stones" borrowed heavily from the early blues legends Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters...etc... We never knew how much they "borrowed"?

I was listening to the "Howard Stern Show" in March. He had a writer on that wrote some book. Da guy was Timothy English. The book was "Sounds Like Teen Spirit". Stern and the gang were talk'n about how surprised they were at who stole what from who. Gary ("Ba Ba Boey") said "Led Zeppelin's" whole catalogue was in question? In fact the new liner notes were being changed on the "Best Of Led Zeppelin". They were change'n the song writing credits from "Page & Plant" to whoever they ripped-off. The Biggest news was the classic Rock song of all time, the one everyone knows as "the song" of this era, was a compete rip-off! Ya know what song I'm talk'n about don'tcha? Do I have'ta write it dude? OK... "Stairway To Heaven". I know what your think'n . "NO WAY DUDE"! Ya Way Dude!

Back in the early 1970's my friends listened to all kinds of Rock music. We really enjoyed a little known band from da U.S. This Rock band had a record that reached platinum in Canada. It was was recorded in 1970 and produced by legendary producer David Briggs (Neil Young's producer). This classic album wasn't really that well received in the U.S. To be fair it kind'a didn't get air play there. It did north of da boarder. A underground station in Toronto started play'n it heavily around 1971. The bands name is "Spirit" and the albums title was "The Twelve Dreams Of Doctor Sardonicus". I know what your think'n, what does "Spirit" have'ta do with "Zeppelin"? Plenty. In the late 60's they toured together. It seems Page & Plant kind'a took a'like'n to a certain song "Spirit" performed nightly. "Taurus" was the song they coveted. "Stairway To Heaven" is a replica of "Taurus". The cord progression in "Stairway To Heaven" is also incredibly similar to a song by the "Chocolate Watch Band", "And She's Lonely." This is another similarity. They just so happened to have toured with this group also! I would love to say this is all a coincidence , but these coincidences happen way to often with those two artists, Page & Plant. As a matter of fact I think Jimmy Page has stolen Randy California's (he wrote Taurus) way of playing guitar. I'll say something else I think all royalties from "Stairway To Heaven" should be paid to the family of Randy California . Unfortunately Randy died along with his son, in a swimming accident in Hawaii .
Here is a short list of songs Zeppelin ripped-off completely or "borrowed from".


Now who would believe they would rip-off folk singers? Well they did!
"Babe I’m Gonna Leave You" sung by Joan Baez...became "Good Times, Bad Times". "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" was stolen from folk singer Anne Bredon the writer. Through legal action the liner note has been changed to "Bredon/Page/Plant" .
"How Many More Times" ; The 1st. half the song is rip'd from Howlin' Wolf .The 2nd. half rip'd from a Albert King song "The Hunter" .
"The Lemon Song" ; Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" . They should just call the band "Howlin' Wolf" they rip'd' off this dude so much !
"Moby Dick" ; Sleepy John Estes's "The Girl I Love" .
"Whole Lotta Love" Lyrics and music written be Steve Marriott From "The Small Faces" He was paid off back in the 70's to shut-up about it . Trouble was Steve Marriott borrowed and gave credit to Willie Dixon's "You Need Love"... Zeppelin did neither!
They also "borrowed" Willie's "I Can’t Quit You Baby". They didn't even bother to change the title, they were so brazen!
The list of songs goes On & On & On...

This isn't Led Zeppelin borrowing or paying homage to forgotten artists. This is stealing music fret by fret, note be note, lyric by lyric! To fool yourself thinking it's any other thing would be a disservice to yourself, your youth and the artist that they stole from. Once Plant and Page put their names on the liner notes...That's it, the song has been plagiarized!

I wrote at the top of this post I would give proof to this story and here it is.

Also "Nash The Slash's" pages on Led Zeppelin, Steve Marroitt and the band "Spirit".

To say "Zeppelin" is a bunch'o'bullshit would be a understatement . I think the band should be pulled from the "Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame" and replaced with the real people who they ripped-off . Namely "Spirit's" Randy California and "Humble Pie's" Steve Marriott. ---Watch This!

And of coarse the Blues & Folk legends of the 40's, 50's & 60's!

Maybe the most influential musician of our time Willie Dixon:





I think he's in the "Hall Of Fame"! Steve Marriott Of "Humble Pie" & "The Small Faces": A little known fact is the movie "Almost Famous" is based on the "Humble Pie's" Steve Marriott!

What Men Want fer Valentines Day?

Anal Sex: You ladies knows that your man is expecting you to put out on Valentine's Day. You don't even have to mess with getting your man chocolates or baubles or even a nice dinner if you're willing to give up the backdoor. Or, if you're saving that to get a trip to Paris or a new car or something, at least do something unexpected, like give your guy a BJ or dress up in a cheerleader uniform or do something in the sack you're not usually willing to do. This means you are the best girlfriend in the whole damn world and you're willing to put your man's pleasure before your own. However, if your man asks for anal, he's a selfish asshole (so to speak), but any man who will wait patiently until you're willing to give it is one worth keeping.

I've Been Wanting To Write About These Dudes For Weeks Now. I Just Don't Have Time With My Job. Anyway, Here's A Story About... Phoenix Jones & His Band Of "Kick-Ass" Copycats

Phoenix Jones Updated Photo.



Sadly, the fantastic movie Kick-Ass never really took off at the box office, but apparently it may have inspired new real-life "superheroes" without any actual powers to try and clean up the streets. The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports that a group calling themselves the Rain City Super Hero Movement as sprouted up, with nine ordinary folks donning costumes and going by such names as Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88, Penelope and Phoenix Jones the Guardian of Seattle.
Phoenix Jones the Guardian of Seattle

Despite their good intentions, the Seattle cops say these seekers of justice are incredibly lucky that none of them have been seriously hurt yet. One "superhero" was almost shot while running out of a dark park and another group, who were wearing ski masks in a Kia, alarmed a witness who thought they were going to rob a gas station. Apparently the Kia was registered to one of the vigilante's godmother, who told the cops that she goes around the city doing good deeds.

It seems these ordinary heroes even have a few nemesis' as well, with Captain Ozone and Knight Owl, other costumed people, not being a part of the group. Phoenix Jones the Guardian of Seattle, who revealed his real identity to the police, also doesn't want just anybody taking to the streets with a mask. Here's what he told the site:

"I don't condone people walking around on the street with masks. Everyone on my team either has a military background or a mixed martial arts background, and we're well aware of what its costs to do what we do."


That's swell, but there's more. They are all a part of a national "organization" called the Real Life Superheroes movement. Look they have a website and everything. You can Click Here! to read the lengthy article to learn more about these Seattle superheroes. I wonder if these guys have Facebook pages yet... and if so, I hope they take suggestions for better superhero names...

Short note:    Phoenix Jones and his whole gang of Real Life Super-Heroes all have Facebook pages. I talked to him last week and he told me he had a Brown Belt In MMA style karate. I informed him my daughter also has her Brown Belt in MMA style fighting. He seemed impressed with her accomplishment. He asked if I wanted to go out with him on patrol, which kind'a surprised me at first. Then it made more sense to me. He really isn't doing this for fame, he really cares and wants to make a difference in his community. That impressed me more than any other action. I told him I lived in Eastern Canada. He still said I was always invited to join if I was ever in the area. Nice guy, this kid is fer sure!


There is also another crew of crime fighters. They belong to a fairly large group of Super-Heroes that is associated across America.
The group is called, funny enuff... Real Life Superheroes. or RLSH.



Keep Your Head Up Phoenix. Your a good dude.

See Ya
