On This Day 12 January

Waiting to see Jimmy Page in the Hall of Fame again.  And again.
1995 12 January On This Day Led Zeppelin inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

  • 1969 Led Zeppelin I released
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - San Francisco, at The Fillmore (day 4 of r)
  • 1975 Led Zeppelin - Brussels, at Vorst Nationaal
  • 1995 Led Zeppelin - inducted in Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame 
Twenty-six years after Led Zeppelin I hit the world, Led Zeppelin finally got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Steven Tyler did the induction honors, Tyler opening with a poor imitation of Robert Plant, prompting the latter to whisper, "You wish." 

When John Paul Jones took the mic, he made the famous statement that's been quoted so often over the years: "Thank you, my friends, for finally remembering my phone number", referring to the fact that Jones had not been invited to join the Page/Plant Unledded project.
“Well, for my part of this, I must say it's a great honor to be inducted. Actually it's the second time for me, 'cause actually, earlier when I was inducted with the Yardbirds. It's almost like, inducted, induced, and this time it's the forceps. Some of you will get that. But anyway, thank you very much everybody.”
