Thirty-six years since robbery of Led Zeppelin's cash, only explanation is work of fiction

The $203,000 in cash stolen from Led Zeppelin at the Drake Hotel in New York has never been recovered, nor have any arrests been made in conjunction with the heist.

But finally, 36 years later, Patrick Sullivan has claimed responsibility.

Too bad he's a fictional character made up by Jason Buhrmester, for his book, "Black Dogs: The Possibly True Story of Classic Rock's Greatest Robbery."

And before you go blaming Buhrmester, keep in mind he wasn't born until a month after the robbery -- or so he says in this interview conducted with him last week for the syndicated radio show "Get the Led Out."

To commemorate today's anniversary of the robbery, Buhrmester will be reading from his book at 7:30 p.m., at the Los Angeles bookstore Stories, located at 1716 Sunset Blvd.
