Please Read the Letter
To Whom it may concern, Please read the letter Being a Led Zeppelin fan for essentially my entire life, you cannot even begin to imagine the sheer joy I felt upon hearing rumors of the upcoming reunion. The months of speculation and hope finally came to fruition yesterday and I along with millions of other fans tried to successfully apply for the ticket ballot. It seems the chances of getting a lucky draw are slim to none. As the reality of this set in, I was consoling myself with the notion, that if not being able to witness this truly historic modern music event in person, I would at least in some way be able to participate in this occasion by being able in some way shape or form watch it. Whether it be live via a pay per view or webcast or after the fact via dvd, I\'d be able to experience the thrill of the lucky few ( and how many would really be true fans other than simply lucky ticket winners ) of seeing the legendary figures of John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and the late John Bonham\'s son Jason, on stage together. Upon reading news that there are no plans to film this or document it in other ways, my elation quickly turned to frustration and eventually to outright depression. How could the promoters of this truly truly historic and also significant in other ways event, come to agreement on such terms Is this even true I still question as it is through various online forums that I\'ve read this And if so, why And what can I do about it I guess I can ask. I can beg. I can use Page/Plant\'s own words and say \"Please Read the Letter\" and hope that this, my online petition to the members of Led Zeppelin, Harvey Goldsmith, The Board of the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, the Outside Organisation, Warner Music Group and all else involved, will somehow change your minds. The massive volume of ticket requests alone should bear witness to the fact of how many fans have been waiting for decades to see this band together again. It\'d be truly a crushing blow to them all to know that what may very well be the last time ever, will only be witnessed by a randomly selected few. You do not owe it to the fans. By far that is your prerogative. But I do feel the need to at least try to ask that you please allow us to be part of that magic moment. Please do it for the fans. Do it for Ahmet. I thank you for your time.
