LED Zeppelin’s fans are to be known as ‘Zepsters’, it has been announced.
More than 26 million devotees across the world are now officially Zepsters who enjoy Zepping out, something which they are struggling to explain to their families and friends.
Tom Logan of Atlantic Records said: “Whether it’s Gaga’s Little Monsters, Katy Perry’s Katy Kats or Extreme Noise Terror’s Noisemakers, every fandom has to be officially named.
“Fans can be members of up to six fandoms at once, so you can be a Beatlemaniac, a Blockhead and a Libertine Keen Bean all at once.
“Anyone not following these rules will have their fandom revoked and be demoted to the level of ‘enthusiast’.”
Scaffolder Norman Steele said: “I don’t want to be called a Zepster, I don’t want to call Robert Plant Captain Zep, and getting my tattoo changed will be a nightmare.
“I’ll just become a Red Hot Chili Repper instead.”
