Led Zeppelin Sues India and Pakistan

A&P Press, Ron Hunt

The remaining members of the rock group Led Zeppelin have sued the governments of both India and Pakistan for “spoiling the name Kashmir”. The suit alleges that the constant warlike climate over the disputed territory called Kashmir sullies the intent of the song Kashmir. At a press conference to announce the lawsuit singer Robert Plant said in part, “..it’s about the idea of life being an adventure and being a series of illuminated moments…not about war and being uncool. They’ve (India & Pakistan) have ruined a beautiful idea and a beautiful song.”  In a rare show of unity the governments of India and Pakistan have denounced Led Zeppelin, with the government of India releasing an angry statement saying the band was “overrated” and sang about “hobbits and wizards…and knew nothing of the land Kashmir”
