What is with these “crazed fans”?

If someone’s talent entertains me, I am grateful.

I used to work with a kid who had this really total obsession with Jessica Alba. I always presumed her agent already had the restraining order.

Years ago, I met a friend at a hotel restaurant and he was a pro athlete. At one point a drunk lady asked for his autograph despite not knowing his name. She put on a show when my friend refused her advances including tossing items from a table. Sad but comical at the same time.

Sad...I actually hung out with Bonzo’s son for nearly an hour and never once asked for his autograph.

Probably should have...but it didn’t even occur to me.

Yes. He also has been the drummer for Foreigner for quite some time.

And of course, he plays with Zep and with Plant when they get together.

Led Zepplin “opens” for Heart? How far they’ve fallen.

It was a comment about the son of Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham. Jason Bonham, the son, has a band opening for Heart.

It’s not Led Zeppelin, it’s Robert Plant solo.

Yeah, his lawyers of Howard, Howard and Fine are not doing much with that restraining order.

Robert Plant resides in Austin, TX.
I have not met him, but have several friends
who have talked to him at local stores.
They said he was very normal and friendly.

Here they are this past Halloween.

He looks so over the hill, and he’s with a looker like Patty Griffin???

He must give good wallet.

As for the obsessed fan, I’m sure she’ll be located at some #Occupy rally in the near future.

There is a Zeppelin song called “Hot Dog” which Plant has mentioned is a tribute to Texas and the people.

The dude is 64 for crying out loud, what do you expect....He looks like he’s still in great shape...he never was into the excesses that Page/Bonham were into.

no- Jason Bonham has been touring for a few years with his band...they call the show “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience”..i saw it a couple of years ago...

besides doing Zeppelin songs they show a lot of old home movies of John Bonham and his family...it was pretty good; films were good, music was good the singer was less than average..

“Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience” is touring with Heart this summer...i’m sure they will all do Stairway to Heaven as they did at the kennedy center honors...

I wonder what his stance on the 2nd amendment is?

the story behind this photo is Plant actually asked the parent of one of the kids take the picture so he could send it to his family in England, since they don’t have Halloween in England...

I teach NAMI Family-to-Family, a 12-week course for familie members who are caring for a loved one with Mental Illness. As part of the course, we bring in someone with a mental illness (but who is now managing it well) and have them speak to the class. These folks are part of a group of volunteers called “In Our Own Voice.” This story sounds like “Anna’s” (one of our IOOV speakers) story. When she was still very ill and not on the right medication, she had an obsession with Sting and was actually arrested once necuase of it. My guess would be this woman/fan may have a mental illness going on. Hope she gets help.

I went to college (early 90’s) with a guy who had posters in his dorm room of Alyssa Milano...from the late 80’s, i.e. 12-13 yr old era.

Ick.

I think most times they have mental issues. Remember the woman that kept breaking into david lettermans house? IIRC she ended it all by stepping in front of a fast moving train. . . . Geez, what a way to go.
