DOHENY Guitarist Presents Award To LED ZEPPELIN

DOHENY guitarist Billy Morrison (CAMP FREDDY, ex-THE CULT) recently presented an award to kings of rock LED ZEPPELIN. Here's his side of it:

"Last Thursday (Dec. 11), I was lucky enough to be asked to present LED ZEPPELIN with the Surround Artist Of The Year Award for their current DVD. I threw a suit and tie on, jumped in the car with my wife Jennifer and my longtime friend Brent Bolthouse, and made my way to The Beverly Hilton Hotel (scene of The Golden Globes every year). Rubbing shoulders in the Green Room with Steve Vai, Dweezil Zappa, Larry Flynt and other such luminaries, I started to wonder what the hell I was doing there!! But it all went very smoothly. The band had sent their producer, Kevin Shirley, to receive the award for them and after a short scene from the DVD ('Kashmir' from the Knebworth 1979 show) I had to walk up to the stage and say my thing. I kept it short ..... 'LED ZEPP....greatest rock and roll band.....my great pleasure to present.....etc etc' after which Kevin read a fax from Jimmy Page accepting the award. A few handshakes later and I was out of there. A very surreal, but interesting evening."

As previously reported, DOHENY, who also feature in their ranks former PITCHSHIFTER frontman Jon "J.S." Clayden, will be performing at the Dragonfly in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 11 at 10:00 p.m. The band, who are currently unsigned, are rounded out by bassist Tony Freddo and drummer Colin LaRocque.
