I knew Robert when he was in his original Band of Joy (I went to school with Chris Brown the keyboard player). He was as charismatic when he was a nobody as he was in LZ and since. He filled any room he entered. He was always going to be a star. A great blues singer and performer he was made to front a great band - that WAS The Band of Joy. When they broke up and he ended up in LZ I was disappointed. I never really liked Page's electric guitar work though his riffs and acoustic playing were exemplary. JPJ was almost invisible in the Zep albums - the production could have been so much better. He is a wonderful musician. The Celebration Day concert was great, though, although Page's lead guitar work grated rather, he should stick to chords. I think it showed why the band was so successful and managed not to be a pale shadow of what they once were. Jason Bonham was every bit as good as his dad was - I first saw him play when he was about 7 or 8!! Nothing was lost from the drumming. The guys can be proud of themselves - thanks Robert for not agreeing to reform - a sensible and cool decision.
