Suburban Cleveland rocks!

Police in Erie County, Ohio, responded to a noise complaint by going to the Wendy’s eatery where aspiring 40-year-old aspiring rock star Nathan Rock works to ask if he’d been rocking too loud in his Huron apartment at 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

According to The Smoking Gun, Rock didn’t deny that he had been blasting music in his home roughly 50 miles west of Cleveland, but he had a defense.

Rock reportedly reasoned with cops that “You can’t play Led Zeppelin quietly.”

The complaint came from Rock’s 60-year-old neighbor, who told officers she’d texted the wannabe frontman with a request to turn down the tunes. She said Rock apologized and explained “he was trying to practice singing as he intended on booking studio time in the near future to record an album.”

The next day, Rock reportedly apologized to his neighbor again and asked to borrow her truck so he could pick up his medication. She said no.

Police said they explained to Rock that if they got word of an encore performance, he would be charged with disorderly conduct.

“Rock stated he understood,” according to a police report.

Rock was also told not to contact his neighbor. Police described the incident as part of an “ongoing” occurrence and suggested the complainant speak to her landlord.
