Re: Led Zeppelin Enters TV Commercial Game



It's kinda funny how some people will jump up and down in anger if the 
remaining Zep members place Zep songs in movies and commercials and cry 
"sellout!", and "they don't need the money!", yet insist that they have a 
reunion once they "decide they need the money."  Reunion--acceptable.  
Commercial use of songs--unacceptable. 

Whatever.

Hey, those are their songs, and their lives. I'm just happy they have found a 
way to get their material out to an audience.  As picky as they have been 
about films they would allow their material in, I'm sure they have the sense 
to do the same with any offers from ad agencies.  Cadillac isn't dog food, 
and not exactly low-dollar or low-class.  Besides, it's the Zepsters' 
business, not ours. IMHO.  Let 'em be, okay?
