Going to California: Trying to find a woman who's never, never, never been born

As the month is ending and I confessed being a fan :), I want to share this music and I will not publish Led Zeppelin any longer. This music is inspired by Joni Mitchell's "California", you can listen to this song too, as Robert and Jimmy were fans of her. A very beautiful collection of images was done by francescadonna for this very sweet, thou sad, song: "Spend my days with a woman unkind Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine Made up my mind, make a new start Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart Someone told me there's a girl out there With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair Took my chances on a big jet-plane Never let 'em tell ya that they're aw-ooh-all the same Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey I wonder how tomorrow could ever follow today-hee Mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake The children of the sun begin to awake Now Watch out It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose And it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin' Throw me a line, if I reach it in time Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high" Find a queen without a king They say she plays guitar and cries and sings, la-la-la-la Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born Standin' on a hill in the mountain of dreams Tellin' myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems."

I like this song and I can definitely hear Joni Mitchel's influence. Did I miss something? Why are you not going to post Led Zeppelin anymore?

I'm a huge fan and you know how fans want to impose others to like.
I simply don't understand people that don't see that Led Zeppelin is amazing.
I have better not go there...
I love all kind of music but when I was a teen I heard rock and roll.
It's funny because in those days going to a friend's house to listen to music was quite an entertainment. I don't know why I like the bands that girls didn't like that much. They preferred slow music and those who only talk about love.
