my love for the band led zeppelin is unshakable.
i remember listening to them and finally understanding them at 15.
i was in my bedroom feeling especially... um
then the rain song played and tore my heart out,
and kindly placed it back into my chest.
it was strange because i had grown up with them as a sort of backdrop to my little world along with alice cooper, carly simon, war, oscar brown jr, last poets, suicidal tendencies, prince, michael jackson, annie lennox and grace jones to name a few.
(my parents and siblings had really supreme music love.)
but something about that day in my room
listening to houses of the holy that changed everything.
i was a virgin and thought that the crescendo of the rain song would be how sex would feel.
i thought that maybe love would be like that too.
i nerded out, emulating robert plant.
i whipped my hair around and put my hand on my hip and lazily held the microphone in my other hand, while stomping one foot wearing bellbottoms and a denim vest with no shirt.
i went nuts that day.
and yearrrrs later i still remember it.
so when i found this original tour tee at a vintage store,
for a little more than a a few weeks worth of groceries...
i couldn't say no.
not to that hazed out teenage girl whose life changed one day while listening to the greatest band ever.
