I'd heard that about him a long time ago.  Apparently he was pretty accustomed to not paying tabs or especially tips in restaurants because he was "famous".  I went to college with a guy who worked in a restaurant on Long island in the late '70s and early '80s and had the displeasure of waiting on him a few times.  It's one thing if the owners want to give a local celeb a freebie, but you still got to tip the wait.  I don't know any musicians who worked with him though.
 
You should watch, that is what it is about how shitty he treated the people he worked with.

Twenty feet is in my queue as well.  There are a couple of documentaries on the wrecking crew, muscle shoals and the swampers themselves.  I have seen some and others are in the queue as well.  The number of musical documentaries is astounding, seems everyone is getting their due or don't if the shoe fits.

Of his first five albums, four were relatively "traditional".  His fourth solo album "Discreet Music" was his approach to ambient sounds but the next one: "Before and After Science" is more "conventional".  It's an excellent album - it got me through high school listening to that.
 

I asked him once, when he came to talk in SF, “what do you think of your first four albums?” 

“I think they were very strange...”
 

He said that?
  I don't think they were strange at all especially Taking Tiger Mountain (my favorite) and Jets.  I think most of his other music is strange, but I am not really into instrumentals a lot.   Baby's on Fire is a personal stash desert island song for me, makes me want to break shit.

Saw this one last night, all of the critics and people they interviewed were going on and on how great side 1 was.  Poppycock!  Other than the Battle of Evermore, all the good stuff is on side 2!   2 of my least favorite Zep songs are Black Dog and Rock and Roll.  Never cared for them one bit.{#Snooty}

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Side one

No.Title Length
1."Black Dog" 4:54
2."Rock and Roll" 3:40
3."The Battle of Evermore"

Saw this last night.  I love his songs and have always thought they we're beautiful and uplifting. Woops. Found out why I didn't even comprehend the lyrics, turns out he was a poet who was also a musical genius.  Nearest comparison is Leonard Cohen, but Cohen was nowhere near the musical talent as Drake. Anyway never been good at poetry comprehension so I guess that explains why the meaning of the lyrics went right by me, I am just mesmerized by the beauty of the melody and his fragile voice.  I have always loved this song, but apparently those that understand the lyrics have stated this is a very difficult song to listen to because of its shocking rawness, vulnerability and despair.  Went right over my head, I think this song is beautiful:

The part near the beginning discussing the Cuban Missile Crisis and the fact that "rational" people came withing a hair of destroying the planet is particularly chilling in light of current events.
