huh? umh... no?

It should move, but for some reason, it doesn't work as a gif, only as gifv. I've noticed this recently. It's an imgur thing, not the forum's fault.

it's actually a pretty good movie ... one of the few to portray global warming in addition to overpopulation

haven't seen it in awhile so it's probably horribly dated by now, but it's worth checking out

Hmmm...let's see: a relatively narrow area with those lit windows near the left edge of the pic with THAT certain shape? I guessed that this was taken aboard a (John's?) private jet.

A Google image search found me this:

Yup, that's most likely the one. The photo I posted was of him playing at the electronic organ bar aboard that plane in 1974.

I was referring to the Elton John picture. It's aboard a Boeing 720 that was called the Starship. It was totally outfitted interior, and used by Led Zeppelin on a number of tours--as well as other bands including Deep Purple, Allman Bros and the Rolling Stones.

Each band would change the livery for their tour.

Elton John tour 1974?
I saw that show.

oh, ok

I've seen pics of Led Zeppelin in a plane. They shared the plane with other people? so much for being a rockstar.

Iron Maiden owns their plane, and the singer can fly it. THAT is how you do it.

Did you see the story of the time that The Allman Brothers arrived to use the plane and "Welcome Allman Brothers" was spelled out in cocaine on the bar?

If you're going to share a plane that's not a bad way to do it. If you're into those kind of lifestyle choices.

Iron Maiden's plane (Ed Force One), is not owned by Iron Maiden--it is leased from Air Atlanta. (Starship was also leased)

No sense in not "sharing" it for a fee when you aren't using it.

Leasing makes more sense as well in that you can claim the cost as a business expense on taxes. When you're pulling in the kind of cash that they were and spending so much of it on the proverbial hookers and blow in support of a rock and roll lifestyle, it's nice to have a legit expense that you can write off.
