He asks. He gets. Part 2

The Rock and Roll karma of publishing my music diaries continues...

Last week I wrote how after 20 yeas of looking, I finally found an affordable copy of Appetite. The day I publish that piece, Chris and I met for a pint at Tom and Jerry's. Robert Plant comes in with a lady friend for a few pints. We didn't want to bother him, as I was lucky enough to meet him at an AOL Sessions 2 years ago and got him to sign 4 pieces of Zep vinyl. He said that was the first time he had signed Zep 2 on vinyl in over 20 years. Meeting him a second time wouldn't have been as great as meeting Jeff Tweedy in Amsterdam last fall, but it was great to see a icon in the flesh.
