re: #344 Killgore Trout

I always assumed it was that Zeplin was so rich and record companies were making so much money that this stuff was handled quietly. I still like Zeplin but for me it does limit their legacy having ripped off so much music. Everybody gets hit with plagiarism claims sometimes but I think Zeplin was clearly stealing songs.

Do some reading on their manager Peter Grant and how he handled record companies. He brought them down to his level and told them what they were going to do for Zepplin. Not the other way around. Zepplin made the money, record companies were just glad to have a taste. And then Zepplin made their own label.
