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 a jet ski with lights
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.
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.
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.
Peter Grant was an extremely dedicated manager for Zeppelin.
