In 1973, Led Zeppelin toured North American Tour for the ninth time. The tour was divided into two legs, with performances commencing on 4 May and concluding on 29 July 1973.
Led Zeppelin would travel on The Starship – a pimped United Airlines Boeing 720B passenger jet owned by Ward Sylvester and singer Bobby Sherman. For $2,500 a day, or $5 a mile, the airplane was specifically modified to cater to the biggest band in the world.
Inside, the main cabin contained seats and tables, revolving arm chairs, a 30-foot long couch running along the right hand side of the plane opposite the bar, a television set and video cassette player; an electronic organ was built into the bar. At the rear of the plane were two back rooms, one a den with a low couch and pillows on the floor, the other a bedroom, complete with a white fur bedspread and shower room.
The Starship was even staffed by two stewardesses, Susie, and attractive eighteen-year old blonde, and Bianca, a twenty-two year old with a dark complexion and a sense of humor.

My friend sent me this cool new indie rock artist whose music sounds like a mix between the boss himself Bruce Springsteen and Psychedelic Furs. His name is Wons Phreely and his song Stars sounds as if it should be in a John Hughes film.
Really digging this new post-pysch electronic artist named BREATHRRR. His new song Chantrieri is an awesome mix of psychedelic noise, heavy bass and new-wave and talks about his deep struggles with addiction.
