Iron Maiden at Letz Zep show- March 19, 2005
Iron Maiden guitarist Janick Gers recently attended a Letz Zep show, and was so impressed that when he met the the band afterwards he offered to write a brief review, which runs as follows:
"If you want to get the 'Led out' and Page and Plant are otherwise engaged, then the only real option you've got is Letz Zep! Billy Plant and the boyz will take you through a roller coaster ride of all the classics like you are unlikely to ever hear again if Robert and Jimmy don't start talking to each other soon, but that's another story. If you can't get the real brew, then this is the closest to the real thing that you are ever likely to see and hear, the playing is impeccable and the Band rocks just like the real thing. Brilliant!"
