On this day, December 4th, in 1980, Led Zeppelin disbands.
“We wish it to be known, that the loss of our dear friend and the deep respect we have for his family, together with the deep sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were.” - Led Zeppelin, official press release, December 4th, 1980.
Happy 76th Birthday, John Lennon (October 9th, 1940 - December 8th, 1980)
“I’m not going to change
the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I’ve always
been a freak. So I’ve been a freak all my life and I have to live with
that, you know. I’m one of those people.”
