OT: For the Zepp fans. Round Two. Are they headed for the Gallows Pole?

A buddy forwarded me this article. Fantastic read.
https://www.phillymag.com/news/2019/...-led-zeppelin/

Best line in the article:

"Copyright experts say Led Zeppelin — which has a long history of ripping off the ancient riffs and carnal incantations of wizened Delta bluesmen and only giving credit when caught — should be worried."

I'm no musicologist, and I love Zeppelin, but the two intros sound dead on similar. The ending is fuc***g hysterical. Something about Robert Plant and lemons.

Yeah, maybe it's plagiarism, but only if you play it backwards.

Robert Plant was offered $100M to do a Led Zeppelin global tour a few years ago. A few months of hard work.
He turned it down as he wasn’t interested. Imagine having so much cash in the bank that $100M is not compelling?
