Donald Fagen joins with Plant, Page, Jones and Jason Bonham for supergroup Steely Zep

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Donald Fagen, seeking a way to spark his creative muse after the death of longtime songwriting partner Walter Becker, has turned to an unexpected source.
Fagen has tapped the surviving members of Led Zeppelin to create a new supergroup, tentatively to be called Steely Zep.
"I thought it'd be a gas combining my jazzy pop thing with Plant's freaky blues-rock stomp," Fagen told the Associated Press. "I'm always up for a challenge."
Fagen, singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham (son of the late John Bonham) reportedly will hole up in a studio in Malibu for much of the holiday season, with plans to begin recording in January. With any luck, they'll release a recording in the spring, and embark on a limited US concert trek next summer.
Fagen and Plant met each other 30 years ago in London, but rekindled their friendship last year, when the two hobnobbed backstage at Plant's concert with Alison Krauss in Los Angeles.
Plant said the new creative partnership offers the opportunity to combine his rootsy, hard-edged approach to rock 'n' roll with Fagen's brainy songcraft for something altogether unique.
"We've always been fans," Page said. "Yacht rock forever!"
People Who Own Horses Are Horse Owners An extensive five month study revealed that people who are in possession of a horse are indeed horse owners. Many such individuals have a history of horse ownership in the past and have actively ridden a horse in the past or continue to actively ride a horse. Research had shown there are exceptions and some horse owners do not actively engage with their horses and allow other "non-owners" to ride their horses. Local stable owners declined to comment on this article.
Studies show that women who own horses live 15 longer than those who don't. Recent studies done in Western NC, Northern Virginia and northern Florida involving various groups of "horsey" and non "horsey women are showing some startling results. The double blind study followed women in different age groups over a forty year time frame to capture this objective data. The study grouped women into two groups of horse (for at least five years) & non-horse owners and then further into ten year age spans. The most significant spike in longevity came at the 65-75 age span which showed highest disparity at 20 longer lives for horse women. Researchers point to the facts of higher forms of exercise, outdoor exposure and socialization of the horse women as likely contributing to the longevity but the women agree that their horses often contribute to their sense of well-being and as a group, these women also tended to be less symptomatic in high blood pressure, diabetes and general heart conditions.
