During their time together they have had the honour of Led Zeppelin’s front-man Robert Plant attending three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son Jason even jammed with them on stage. These things the band are very proud of. It must surely also be the best recommendation any band could receive, and also assure any Led Zeppelin fans apprehensive about seeing The Fredz. According to one of Kerrang’s readers polls. Quite an achievement, as they were the only tribute band listed in any category. Its worth taking a camera with you, as you don’t know who could be standing next to you. Kev bass and Blackie drums attended and were thrilled to meet and chat with the legendary guitarist.

50 years ago: How it all began for Led Zeppelin
What the Beatles were to the ’60s, Led Zeppelin were to the ’70s: a band so successful and innovative they wound up creating the prism through which their entire epoch was seen. Zeppelin ushered in the era of album rock — they refused to release singles off their albums, even when they were garnering massive radio play — and of arena rock, playing ever-larger stadiums as their ticket sales skyrocketed. Other bands played on a similar field but Led Zeppelin carried a unique mystique cultivated by cryptic album art, distance from the press, and, of course, their music.
Underneath the wattage, there was a strong undercurrent of folk-rock and the quartet would soon thread in world music, funk, country, and synthesizers, creating an adventurous body of work that had a long, lasting influence on hard rock, heavy metal, and alternative rock.

From the information which has been coming in, he was also involved with a belly dancer throughout , so I would say he would not be able to take Ms Sabet on a media launch if he was seeing both ladies.
Jimmy was also giving name checks to Du Bellows, presumably to help them and their manager, Peter Makowski. Obviously, Jimmy doesn’t need more money or fame, but he may be amenable to helping others. This made me think of a scene, where jimmy is being interviewed, with his new girlfriend sitting next to him. After jimmy scratches his nose for about the 5th time, the girlfriend starts to scratch his nose for him. The interview continues for another minute or two and suddenly the belly dancer girlfriend is on the interview set The camera then shows jimmy with an expression like, wtf?
