    Got an email today from Bonamassa saying to watch his Bona-Zeppelin rendition of a couple songs.

    Bona-Zeppelin??? Are you kidding me? Now you're putting your self-important Bona stamp on Led Zeppelin???? Get over your pretentious Bona self!!! I like your playing, met you, seen you play a bunch of times and even bought one of your personal guitars. That said, I have also been trying like hell to justify not unsubscribing, but this is just too much. You may be a thing these days but your fricken' ego is out of control... send your mile-long pitchy emails selling your JB logo'd underwear to someone else, I'm done with you!

    Tell us how you really feel! :p

    I kind of sort of in a way possibly maybe get your point. Mr. Page has always been my #1. No one is ever going to do Zeppelin better imho.

    I can only imagine what Jimmy Page would say, if he ever looked down far enough to even notice.

    I'll bet Joe can do Zeppelin better than Greta Van Fleet.

    He might play more notes, and flawlessly at that, but he doesn't have the LZ "It" factor like GVF does.

    Robert Plant himself even acknowledged them.

    Is that just making a point or does he really sell his own brand/style of drawers?

    If he hasn't already tried, he will. You'll be able to see the logo more clearly with your JB glasses... ;)

    not really, no. :)

    *Edit: I've seen him pop into threads and flame people too - my post was an open letter.

    How's that? :D :D :D

    JB posted an apology and good bye for good thread not too long ago. Don't know the details about the transgression.

    I do not know Jimmy Page, but never recall him saying anything bad. For all I know he could be a great (relative to his position in guitar history) down to Earth guy.

    IIRC, doesn't he own the other LP board? No wonder he left here over some Bona BS.

    Yeah, he made one of those typical dramatic farewell posts but odds are, he probably still lurks though, '59's or not, they always do! :D :D :D

    Dude: YOU are the one on his email list- not me. I don’t see the pretense. Dread Zeppelin wasn’t pretentious. Why is this?

    There's a little Italian restaurant near me that serves the best bonamassa meglomania you ever tasted.
