Just been reading an old Uncut article from 98 about Led Zep and their 'antics' on tour in early 70s. Glorifies it all a bit, including an incident where they tied up a 17 year old woman and used a fish to interfere with her various orifices. And, more shockingly as I did not know, the following:
Jail bait – Los Angeles, June, 1972
Page falls for the 14-year-old child model, Lori Maddox. Kidnapped by Cole one night from the Rainbow bar, she is taken to the Riot House (hotel) for an assignation with the guitarist. No question of sending her back-to-schoolin’: little Lori stays with Page on-and-off for 18 months. Cole and Grant insist that on the road she is kept locked up with a private security guard on the door, fearing that if Page is caught with the under-age girl he will be deported and refused further work permits.
...didn't Jerry Lee Lewis and Woody Allen etc etc do kinda similar? yet Page seems to have this airbrushed over.
