News report: Hollywood, a city that is used to visiting dignitaries from all walks of life, is going all out to welcome Britain's newest musical rage, Led Zeppelin. Such excitement has not been generated by a group since the Beatles set foot in Los Angeles three years ago.
Led Zeppelin, who arrived in the states last week for their second stateside tour appeared at the Rose Palace (launching pad for the annual Rose Parade festivities) in Pasadena recently. A host of stars purchased tickets for the event, including Joanne Woodward, Paul Newman and Laurence Harvey.
Producer Mark Carliner who happened to catch the group in San Francisco recently, is talking film projects with them. He is convinced they can be the logical successors on the screen to the Beatles and duplicate their high-flying box office success.
