- Hey Jimbo. You know it's really, really great to hear directly from you. Just fabulous. I'm about to add reference to the article, but here is the direct quote from Robert Plant himself:
"Great Britain- it's been five glorious days... and if you see Denis Healey... tell him we've gone". - Led Zepplelin: The 'Tight But Loose' Files; Celebration 2 By Dave Lewis
Plant had sarcastically dedicated "In my time of dying" to Healey for the tax exile and related problems the band was facing. It's a well-known event in the history of Zep, and also mentioned on the song's article, so I considered adding it to Denis Healey's article.
- - Book ref - Led Zepplelin: The 'Tight But Loose' Files; Celebration 2 - By Dave Lewis - here - text - Page 39 - During those shows (Earls Court) Plant threw in more than one barbed comment regarding their upcoming forced exile, "Somebody voted for someone and now everybody's on the run, You know Dennis (Healey, then Chancellor of the Exchequer) ,,,no artist left in the country anymore, he must be Dazed and Confused! Led Zeppelin played their final night at Earls Court on Sunday May 25, 1975. Plant commenting, "This is our last concert in England for some considerable time. Still their is always the Eighties." His parting shot was equally to the point, "If you see Dennis Healey tell him we've gone!" The nest day Plant and his wife Maureen flew to Agadir.... Page 34 ...at the close of a thrilling "In My Time of Dying". and keeping up his Healey references with a "bye bye Dennis" in the song's close. - Page 35 - Great Britain - it's been five glorious days,,, and if you see Dennis Healey,,, tell him we've gone - Robert Plant May 25, - Copied from the book for educational purposes please be aware of copyright if republishing - ... They flew out as tax exiles a few days later he was in a pretty bad car crash with his wife and children, broke his leg I think and his wife was pretty badly injured, fractured skull broken pelvis - changed his life the tax exile issue did, recuperated in Jersey (the Island) and moved to the states, Malibu. - San Fransisco Candy Store Rock - I think it wasn't until Knebworth 1979 that they appeared in the UK again. The video of the dazed and confused where he mentions Dennis at the start is here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKZRcYkaEag&feature=related - Off2riorob (talk) 15:06, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
- Hey Rob. Hope you doing great. I've already used this reference, and in fact there's another one on "LZ-'75: THE LOST CHRONICLES OF LED ZEPPELIN'S 1975 AMERICAN TOUR MUSIC AND BANDS" by Stephen Davis. Regards, Scieberking (talk) 15:16, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
