Keith Moon's statement: what did he mean?

Shuk

When Keith Moon said the band would go over like a lead zeppelin, did he mean that it would crash hard fast (as a lead zeppelin in the air would), or that it would be huge and fly high (like a zeppelin) and end hard and fast when their time was up (going down like lead)? Was he doubting the band or praising it?

It was all doubt dude... Jimmy just took that name for whatever reason. It's a fantastic name when you think about it, though... It was all doubt dude... Jimmy just took that name for whatever reason. It's a fantastic name when you think about it, though...

He was saying that Americans wouldn't get it- it would make as much sense as someone inventing a lead balloon.
It's such an awesome name, one of the best names for a band ever.

Hey refers to the Hindenburg disaster. The Hindernburg was a zeppelin, composed of lead, and it crashed, and crashed hard. Hey refers to the Hindenburg disaster. The Hindernburg was a zeppelin, composed of lead, and it crashed, and crashed hard.

i dont think he was really referring to the crash... though it did probably play a role in his speach.
the whole name just spelled disaster and kieth moon wanted nothing to do with the band when page and plant wanted him to drum for a different project.

I actually believe the story behind the name was that Jimmy Page had said to Keith Moon he was calling his new group the "New Yardbirds." Moon said that'd fail like a lead zeppelin, hence the name.....
