LED ZEPPELIN – Jimmy Page connects the “administrative resource”

LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page has connected an “administrative resource” in the fight against his neighbor Robbie Williams, trying to prevent him from building a pool in his own basement. As early as 2015, Williams wanted to swim in his basement and requested permission to carry out major repairs in his London home. But he is in the neighborhood with the possession of Page, which is a valuable architectural monument. Concerned by the security of the property entrusted to him, Paige wrote a letter to the local council saying that it would have “catastrophic consequences” for the safety of his own home. Since diving into the pool, Williams will raise a high wave that will erode the foundations of the historic monument owned by Page. In response, Williams sang publicly at one of the festivals obscene poems on the motif “Whole Lotta Love” and called Paige “crazy”, for which he later had to apologize…

However, Paige still initiated the convocation of the city council on this matter. Following the debate of the parties, it was decided to transfer the case to the planning committee. Well, while the committee has postponed consideration of the case … Paige believes that this is a “good result”. Williams is forced to “dive” in the bathroom. But most importantly, the neighbors no longer greet when they meet, and are unlikely to do it again someday.

Meanwhile, a monument to John Bonham of Led Zeppelin was opened in his hometown of Redditch (England) on the day he turned 70 years old, on May 31. The statue was sculptured by the sculptor McR Richards, and his work now adorns the Mercian Square in the center of the city. Most of the funds for the project are obtained from a private investor. The bronze composition, about two meters high and about five meters wide, depicts Bonhema furiously working behind his powerful drum set. It weighs about 2.2 tons and is covered with a composition that protects it from graffiti. The sculpture stands on a pedestal, which causes obvious associations with the design of the album Led Zeppelin ‘Houses Of The Holy’ – these are the leading stone ledges. Only the women on them, of course, do not crawl … The inscription reads: “The most outstanding and original drummer of his time, John Bonham, the popularity and influence of which is still significant in the world of music and not only.” John’s younger sister, Deborah Bonham, who supervised the construction, remained “ecstatic” from the result, like the author Mark Richards, who is simply “happy.” Bonham died on September 25, 1980 at the age of 32.
