Led Zeppelin and Neil Young on stage: When the Levee Breaks"

First, name me any other geetar gunslinger on Earth that ever went on stage to play lead with Jimmie Page?Only a man with no fear would do so.

Especially Neil with his rack of floor pedals, black Gibson guitar, and if you look close his old, tiny, brown Marshall Amp miked to run through stage speakers.

Do yourself a favor and buy and watch year of the horse dvd.  Year of the Horse: Neil Young and Crazy Horse Live

True story.

Stopped in my local a few days after Katrina pounded New Orleans and someone played Zep cover of "When the Levee Breaks" and happened to stand next to a young bartender who moonlighted as a DJ while studying at Full Sail.

After my comment on the irony, she proudly said she never listened to Led Zeppelin.

Chilluns, if it were not so I would not tell anyone.

Jus' Sayin'.
