Interesting to whom?

Answer: Who fans who don't particularly care for Led Zeppelin.

IMO, smashing an instrument is low-rent and just plain disrespectful - that's someone's craft work and creation you're destroying.

So fans of The Who were all tee-totalers?

If not, then I guess The Who needed more than just a 'zonked' audience to keep the fans enthralled on a bad night - they needed to bust up some guitars and drum kits to boot.

So let me get this straight: Anyone who happened to enjoy a band or a film you dislike is a "sucker?"

A lot of people (myself included) enjoyed the fantasy sequences - I get it that you were not one of them.

As quiet as it's kept, a lot of people also enjoyed Led Zeppelin's music in spite of a lot of really high-profile rock critics who said the same things (throughout most of the 70s) you are saying here.

Which brings me back to my opinion of music critics....
