TheDeal.com - Warner Music debuts on down note
If your record label can't get its young, feisty and idealistic hit act to play at the New York Stock Exchange, then there's bound to be an old, tired and conformist rocker willing to provide some licks for your company's big debut.
With Linkin Park busy suing Warner Music Group over its initial public offering, the label led by Edgar Bronfman Jr. turned to Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page to crank out some chords during the exchange's opening bell Wednesday. But as Page played the Zeppelin classic "Whole Lotta Love," investors didn't show Warner Music any affection, sending its shares down 60 cents, or 3.5%, to close its initial session as a standalone public company at $16.40.
Poor Jimmy tired, old and conformist rocker, words to describe the Guitar Rock God. Wonder why Jimmy even agreed to go there in the 1st place...possibly to get out there and try playing? He should follow Robert Plants footsteps and get an album out!! Come on Jimmy gives us some NEW music to enjoy!!
