A slightly over the top reaction i'd have said.

Me too -- surprising that Robert Plant was one of Duane's idols -- Zeppelin wasn't even all that famous when they came to the US the first time, playing smaller venues like the Boston Tea Party etc. -- Duane probably knew about Jimmy Page though, that's probably how he knew about Zeppelin -- weird that he'd be insulted enough by what someone was wearing, to walk out before hearing the music

I read the comments - one of which was by Butch clarifying his own statement. Others are by Zep Heads defending their guys.

It seems that Duane was a fan of Jimmy Page's. He was slightly turned off to see their live act, which was based more in theatrics than in serving the song. I saw Zep once and that was enough. To me, they were just better in the studio than on the stage.

Zep was booed off the stage in KC back in those days. Kudos to KC. Zep said they'd never play there again and they haven't.
Like I even cared.
If the music didn't come from below the Mason-Dixon line I wasn't much interested...other than Climax Blues Band .

Wow, hadn't ever heard about the theatrics aspect of their early concerts -- glad they got rid of that by the time I saw 'em (summer 1970, first concert ever

Duane and Plant would have made an interesting Celebrity Death Match. Make that ABB vs Zep.

"Theatrics" - maybe the wrong word. I guess we could go with "prancing and posing" instead.
If you're a Led Zepplin fan that stuff probably didn't bother you. Duane's approach was more about playing music than in dressing up. Or "prancing".

I saw them a couple of times in the 70's and don't recall thinking of it as a theatrical show - in fact I thought both shows were wonderful!

I think Rusty has got it correct.
Duane was a , **** I forgot the guitarists name in Zep, but anyway, my initial thought Duane was a fan and to see some pretty boy prancing around onstage was a big dissapointment to him.

The version of this story I was told was that when Duane saw Page start in with the violin bow Duane stated he was leaving or he was going up there to punch him out. Don't know what he thought of Plant...

I like Zeppelin, but they are a pretty lousy live band. Part of that is due to their instrumentation, they were basically a power trio on stage which made it difficult to replicate their studio stuff, which is why Page sounds like he's overplaying in concert - he's compensating for all of the layers of guitars he layered in the studio.

Stage theatrics are not necessarily a bad thing. It just works for some performers and not others. The Allman are my favorite band, and they are about musical interaction. The Talking Heads are my second favorite band and David Bynre puts on a great, fun stage show, without sacrificing the amazing music.

I've always liked Zepplin but never really got what the big deal was about...the were a really good band....don't get me wrong I really like them, but people think they're gods.....I do not.

My alltime favorite Simpsons quote.......from when they go to London, Homer goes....

For some reason Butch loves calling out Zep in interviews. The ABB is my favorite but Zep is awesome also in their own way. I hate classic rock radio but I don't mind hearing all the Zep that they play.

Apparently Robert Plant wasn't easy to get along with during the late 60s heyday. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull admitted that when he was supporting Led Zeppelin back in
68-69 he was at constant odds with Plant. Plant referred to his group as "Jethro Dull"!!

However the guys from Tull did get along with Jimmy Page better. According to Martin Barre, when he was recording his guitar solo for "Aqualung" at Island Studios in December 1970, Jimmy Page, who was recording "Stairway To Heaven" at the time offered him some encouragement: a friendly wave thru the glass window of the control room. But as Martin had his hands full at the time, he just smiled back!!

It's hard to imagine that two radio classics "Stairway to Heaven" and "Aqualung" were recorded at the same time at the same studio.

He has to get his name out there somehow.

I'll take the old Zeppelin anytime. Trucks would not even belong on the same stage as Bonham.

I could care less what Plant wore on stage, sounds as if Duane was acting a little "redneck" about the situation. I thought he was all about Peace and Brotherhood, maybe not.

When I saw Zep, they were awesome....never forget it.

I read this recently too. Duane said either he was going to kick the sh*t out of Jimmy
Page or he was leaving. I think Butch was quoted on that too.

I do not see the point of bring this up in the media. It cast a negative shadow on Duane.
