For Badgeholders Only! The Led Zeppelin Mailing List is now being run at zoso.net on a server owned by Bob Rood. Bob, along with Jeremy Mixer, and Bruce "the Buckeye" Deerhake are the co-administrators. The list was formerly at Stanford University, but had to be moved due to problems with the server there (particularly a lack of digest capability), and apathy by the owners of the server. It is expected that we will soon grow back in membership back to the original over 1500 fans worldwide, including authors and editors of several Led Zeppelin publications. One never knows who might lurk about the Led Zeppelin List! For Badgeholders Only is the premier grapevine of discussion and news that no Led Zeppelin fan should be without. If you are a big Led Zeppelin fan and have an email account, then you need to get connected with us! This is a free service, all you need is email.
Enjoy the list and if you have any questions or problems, please send an email to the list administrators at owner-zeppelin at zoso dot net or here:

Jeremy Mixer at mixer at zoso dot net
