Kadhafi: "Led Zep Rocks!"

Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, a long-time fan of rock music, flew to London earlier this week to see one of the most anticipated rock and roll concerts in the last twenty years: Led Zeppelin.

Kadhafi arrives at London's O2 Arena for last night's Led Zeppelin concert.

Fans in the same section as Kadhafi say he is a very enthusiastic fan. A couple from Germany say they heard Kadhafi say, "Jimmy! Jimmy, we love you! It's been a long time!"

Kadhafi says the last time he was this excited to see a rock concert was the "Invisible Touch" tour by Genesis which he was forced to miss due to an unexpected scheduling complication in April of 1986.

"I waited in line for nearly an hour to procure a deluxe version of the program and a Two-X size jersey," says Kadhafi. "But some jerk ahead of me bought the last in my size, even though he probably only needs a large. Does he not know who I am? Does he not know that I could have ordered his death back in 1980? If he was born then, that is."
Last month, President of France Nicolas Sarkozy handed off tickets as promised.

After the show, he said he was quite excited, "Kadhafi wanna whole lotta love, baby!" He even expressed an interest to reunite with his bandmates from the Led Zeppelin tribute band Greased Air.

"If that doesn't work out, I pray to Allah that I get to see Knopfler with Dire Straits once more."

Mark Knopfler was not available for comment, however his answering machine noted that Kill to Get Crimson is out in stores now.
