Are you guys serious? At this moment, people are lining up for tonight’s Led Zeppelin reunion at London’s O2 Arena? What’s the big deal? Jesus, you would think Herman’s Hermits are getting back together or something.

Look, the band with the guy from the Honeydrippers, one-half of Coverdale/Page and some of their cronies were just adequate. I just don’t understand the appeal. Songs about elves and mountains, leave that to people like Jethro Tull, all right? Find your own hustle. That’s what it takes to be successful in this business.

No wonder you haven’t released anything new in almost 30 years. That’s why guys like Bachman Turner Overdrive are still rocking our asses instead of selling us endless compilations of your self-proclaimed “hits.” Just do us all a favor and play “All My Love” and fade away. Nobody asked for this. Nothing is sadder than old rocker trying to recapture their supposed former glory. These one-hit wonders just won’t stop grasping for notoriety. Too little, too late.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
