Re: Awesome Onion Story

You make it sound that Jimmy Page is a messiah that is about to save this world from doomsday.

Re: Awesome Onion Story

My favorite part was either

The vault's Key, regarded as too staggering a burden for any one man to bear, was divided in two parts, with half entrusted to Eddie Van Halen and half to David Lee Roth, shortly after Roth left the rock supergroup Van Halen.


or

"There's a secret vault to save rock and roll?" McCartney said. "This is the first I've heard of it."

Re: Awesome Onion Story

Does anyone get these references?

Quote:
rock historians now believe the riff is locked away deep beneath the Welsh countryside house known as Bron-Yr-Aur, at rock-grid coordinates SH735026. British weather satellites have also photographed an enormous cloud, shaped like a hybrid of an upside-down question mark and cross, forming above these exact coordinates.

SH735026 is a map grid reference for the house known as Bron-Yr-Aur according to that link.

Re: Awesome Onion Story

I don't think this story is true. I'm pretty sure i read somewhere that all of the 'unreleased' Zep stuff has been exhausted and there's nothing else to be heard.

I don't believe it.

Oh Yeah?
Have you heard the Bonham Drum out takes?
I believe every word the Onion prints!
It is an upstanding and very prestigious magazine.
