RE: Led Zeppelin Enters TV Commercial Game



With all due respect to all of you, I appreciate your sentiments ........But
what are you all getting so twisted about, who cares?!! will this make you
enjoy Led Zeppelin Music any less?!! How can you call them sellouts??!! We
may not like it but it's their music and  they have a right to do whatever
they want with it..........If they really cared about the fans (us!) do you
think there would be one crappy video (TSRTS) and two live cd's,
commercially available after all these years??!!! And don't kid yourselves,
that music would not be in a commercial without Jimmy, Roberts and JP's
authorization............................When someone says it is not about
the money, it is always about the money...............think about
it............................:) 

By the way, maybe it is just me but if I have to be exposed to all those
obnoxious commercials it makes it a little easier to tolerate if it includes
a song I really enjoy........................IMHO...............

Pretty soon I won't need a stereo anymore, I'll just watch car commercials
on
TV!
It's all the friggin Who's fault!! ( the original sellouts! & not just by
album title)

Bonzo must be rolling in his grave.
