Led Zeppelin receives a complaint from Eva von Zeppelin

In 1970, Robert Plant and his Led Zeppelin bandmates were scheduled to perform in Copenhagen, Denmark when airship heiress Eva von Zeppelin (a descendant of Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin) called the band a bunch of "screaming monkeys" and threatened to sue if they used her name. Their solution? They played under an assumed name: The Nobs!

[Nobs is both a crude term for a group of penises, and an anagram of the word 'snob'.]
