METAL BLOG, Vol. 7 - by Steff Chirazi
Saturday night - My neighbor Rich is a great guy. He works in cancer research and is the first to step up and offer any help a needy friend or family might have in this area, and he’s also a fun guy to be around when it comes to music. Oh, he also likes beer and sport. Before any of you ask, he’s married hahahahahaha! ANYWAY, I digress. Rich likes to have friends over to hang out, listen to tunes, eat food and drink beer. Tonight will be a special event, in so much as it is a gathering of the local Books, Bands & Brews club he and our buddy Todd have going, and the focus tonight is Led Zeppelin. We will discuss two books written about the band, the infamous Stephen Davis epic Hammer of The Gods and UK writer Mick Wall’s warty and occasionally fictionalized hike through the myriad of myths and truths around the Zep-entity (sharks, groupies, jets, drugs, devil worship and dark arts oh and a few large-ish gigs to throw out just a few things from Led Zeppelin’s life).
