    I'll admit that I was one of those people. While i have a lot of respect for Led Zep now, it took me a moment to warm up to young Robert Plant's voice.

    I was like that about Mick Jagger for a hell of a long time. Certainly throughout my teenage years.

    It took years for me to be able to appreciate the Stones music properly. Jagger's voice turned me off. Like with you though, as I got older I learned to respect his uniqueness and vocal delivery.

    If you have to listen to something for years until you can finally convince yourself that you like it, then something is wrong there.

    And I've told you that I don't want to write for DC or Marvel. I'm doing fine. I don't need a job from them. (I might listen to an offer to become the CEO though.) So yeah, Robert Plant will be as good at writing their comics as I will be.

    His singing still sucks though.

    Well, it is a thread for controversial (or minority) opinions.

    Led Zeppelin is over rated. I'd rank The Supremes over them, just to throw in another popular group of the time. Led Zeppelin was mostly just gimmicky acoustical effects rather than any real musical talent.
    When if comes to a singing voice, it's Diana Ross, no contest.

    When it comes to British Invasion bands, I'd put Led Zeppelin well behind The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Queen and The Kinks. I just never understood the appeal of Zeppelin and, in my opinion, Robert Plant doesn't stack up to Freddie Mercury, Roger Daltrey or even Mick Jagger.

    Toss up between the Beatles and the Stones, probably.

    I prefer Queen to either of them, personally.

    I couldn't disagree more. Tastes change. People become more appreciative of some qualities and less tolerant of others.

    Your opinion later in life is no more or less valid than your opinion when you're young.

    I've hated blue cheese for most of my life, but am beginning to appreciate it. It doesn't mean that there's something wrong with it to have taken me so long to like it.

    Unquestionably right. For example, I used to literally get nauseated by the smell of peanut butter as a kid, but I can eat it out of the jar happily today.

    Freddie Mercury was THE frontman of all rock and roll frontmen. No one will EVER come close to replicating his magic.

    Heather Antos leaves Marvel for a higher position in Esports and some fans are acting as if Saddam Hussien has been captured...or I guess more appropriately, Nixon resigned. I'm just shaking my damn head...

    American perspective of their politics is a poison for social media in general around the world, there is this fringe groups of partisian followers that the only thing they want is to defeat ideological (sometimes physical) the other side, that why i stopped following a lot of the political side of twitter and started focus on more people in my region who do art.

    It seems with each president elected the other side tries to outdo each other in how toxic they can be. It seems it all started when Bill Clinton beat George Bush sr. The right was incensed that GB 1 only got one
    term and spent the next 8 years trying to tear down BC. Then when George W. Bush got elected it was the left's turn to get revenge because they felt Al Gore was cheated out of the election, and did win the
    popular vote. So when Barrack Obama got elected it was the right's turn. Didn't help that he is a black man. Now it's trump's turn. Some of it is deserved, but it gets old quickly.

    That's some false equivalency horse droppings right there.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!
