lez-zeppelin-tshirt.gifMaybe it’s because the camp gene is right next to the gay gene, but I heart tribute bands. I’m not sure how I feel about Rolling Stone reviewing them, but it is. Still, I can’t help but be titillated by their mention of transgendered bands like Lez Zeppelin and (male) Madonna. I’ve been giving Klezbians and Isle of Klesbos CDs for gifts for years, for the name alone! But the idea of some dykes rocking out to “I’ve gotta little woman but she won’t be true” is just too fantastic. I love the underground, irreverent humor, especially as it pertains to gender, about which we tend to be sooo reverent. (Little people are down with it, too, at least the ones in the band Mini Kiss.) But if Rolling Stone is covering it, does that mean it’s already over?
