Since the release in 1990 of their debut cd “Un-Led-Ed” for IRS Records, Dread Zeppelin have continued to play to diehard fans and confused faces in crowds around the world for over 21 years. While the make-up of the band has gone through a few member changes, the main forces of the band have remained to reveal new and old sounds, and look for a new generation of Led Zeppelin fans and anti-Led Zeppelin fans. Dread may always be considered to most, purely a novelty act. However, some may argue that unlike a number of those acts, the bands longevity is due to their ability to actually play.
Dread Zeppelin celebrated their 21st year anniversary Jan 6th 2010. The band still tours and releases new material with original members Butt-Boy (Gary Putman) and Tortelvis (Greg Tortell), along with Tort's faithful manservant Charlie Haj and long time members Spice (Cris Boerin), Bob Knarley (Howard Ulyate) and Ziggy Knarley (Chip Moreland). Putman is the only member of Dread Zeppelin to have recorded on every record and played every live show to date, due Tortelvis' year long adventure in wonderland in 1992.
