While at the courthouse taking care of the paperwork to divorce his third wife, Missourian George F. Blackburn decided to do something he'd been thinking about for a long time.

He changed his name to Led Zeppelin II, in honor of his favorite rock album.

"[Led Zeppelin] changed my life, forever, and that's my whole reason for doing this," he said. He added that his life has now "improved a thousand fold," and that even his most recent ex-wife has embraced the change by calling him L.Z. or Zep.

"I don't want to appear to be some off-the-wall, drug-addict idiot," he said. "I just changed my name from the standpoint that I can be a better person than I used to be."

We're just glad his favorite Zeppelin album wasn't 'Houses of the Holy.'
