    Heard this story years ago and wondering if anyone knows if it's true.

    Years ago, some members that were about to be Led Zeppelin were with some members of The Who. Zep guys explained their new band was going to be blues/rock. Keith Moon supposedly said, "That'll go over like a lead zeppelin!"

    And there was the name.

    Yes.

    Supposedly Moon and Entwhistle were growing sick of Datry's and Townsend's attitudes. So they were having lunch with Jimmy Page, and Rod Stewart, discussing forming a new band.

    .

    If true, that band never happened. But Page kept the name, and used it several years later.

    I know everyone keeps saying Nirvana was the greattest of the Seattle bands. But for my money, it's Alice-in-Chains.

    Everyone?

    Growing up in Chicago we heard most of it, and if Nirvana was your fave, fine. Alice in Chains? Fine.

    There seemed to be a deluge of great music then, and most of them played near me. We just took it all in.

    Let me rephrase.

    Nearly everyone who in those days sort of liked Nirvana, these days claims they were Nirvanas #1 fan back then.

    Here is a great guitar performance, from a Harvard talent show. Is about 8 minutes.
