Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Lol! Aint that the truth! ..In fact, if anything, he gets paid much more for doing much less. He sits on a sofa and rakes in a few bucks every time a Cadillac commercial comes on. I wonder what the dinks at Wall Street were thinking when they had him there? "Oh this will be great, an evil, enigmatic, pill-popping rock and roller. Nothing says stability better than this!"
In all fairness, it is good to see him out there with his guitar. At least he hasn't completely faded into obscurity yet. I wish I was getting royalties on things I did in my early 20's. I guess I'm just lucky I'm not doing time for those things, much less accepting royalties.
Kudos Jimmy! Slap your name on another guitar! Get me a Cadillac too while you're at it!
It's good to see him out there. He might not be able to make Zep music anymore, but it would be nice to hear something worthwhile from him. He obviously still likes to play and still can play.
Actually he sounded great when he did those shows with the Black Crowes a few years ago. I saw 2 shows and they were both incredible. Jimmy did a fine job. Hey, there is nothing wrong with paying the bills! Jimmy has given us some great memories so cut the old man some slack : ) We are all going to be that old some day. Pretty scary, I recently turned 40. Is it time to start complaining how that 9lb Paul is killing my back!!!!
Nothing wrong with making money but I wonder what he did with all the ZEP cash?
I saw this live on CNBC, I have to admit I thought it was pretty lame. A rock legend doing wall street promo for a company that he doesn't even own. He msut need the cash or be very bored.
