    There's a microphone in front of one of the amps. He might have actually played a couple of notes too. Certainly a pointless exercise, unless.... he's using the rig to re-amp a guitar part from an old recording that had a dry (i.e. direct from the instrument) guitar signal and he wants to recreate the exact sound....

    Eddie Van Halen slamming Page

    I doubt this "claim" has any truth to it as well. Reason: Kramer had no qualms about recording Kiss live in 1977, despite having already recorded their first live album in 1975 where damn near every track had to be overdubbed later in the studio. And, in 1977 the same thing had to be done again for Kiss Alive II. In other words, Kramer was very well aware of how shit Kiss was to record live, but did it anyways. Kramer was done in the Zeppelin camp once he attempted to get Plant to overdub his vocals for TSRTS. I imagine that had he not gotten on Plants bad side that he would have been recruited to record the Earls Court run as well. Also, if LZ had wanted to record live in 1977, and Kramer passed on it, they would have gotten someone else to do it for sure.

    Great photo. I follow Scarlet on Facebook, meets a lot of great artists. Obviously helps to have a famous dad. Led Zeppelin autographs

    Not soundboards - it would have said if there were.
  9. Yeah, fair enough, mate. I guess some people have that need to see old musicians reliving their youth for money, it's understandable even if it's not for me.
  10. I disagree.It's not about entitlement it's about the hunger to see the band for themselves, just once. When Lennon died, George Harrison famously said that "The Beatles will not be getting back together as long as John Lennon remains dead". And so that was that. However, with Zeppelin it's different, Page and JPJ wanted to continue after 2007 but Plant nixed it. Fans want to see their heroes in the flesh, playing the music they love. So, if there is the slightest chance that Plant might change his mind, they will continue hope and interviewers will continue to ask because of that hope - was it two million applications for O2 tickets? Tells you all you need to know about how desperately fans want to see the band. Is it demanding? Sure. However it is nothing to do with entitlement and everything to do with passion, for the band and for the music. You can't knock fans for hoping against hope, it's human nature.

    Dragon Telecaster Re-created

    Well let’s agree to make this a discussion and not an argument. Although I’m not sure either one of us will see things the same way! First let me say that I am a Les Paul and humbucker lover. Been playing them since I first saw Zeppelin at the Nassau Coliseum in 1972. And although I own a telecaster Les Pauls are my weapon of choice. And the sound of the Les Paul through a vintage Marshall with no fuzz at all as Heartbreaker was done on Zeppelin II is my favorite tone of all time. But that being said I can’t agree less about single coil pickups not accepting fuzz boxes well. If you’ve ever tried a Les Paul through a vintage tonebender as I have you will never get what Jimmy got on Dazed and you shook me and how many more times on Zep I. It is the humbuckers that are too thick and muddy and the whole thing ends up like a muddy mess. But because single coils are thinner and brighter the telecaster was the perfect guitar to use with that pedal. And I’m not the only one that is of that opinion. Single coils are cleaner thinner and brighter than a humbucker. Now if you personally didn’t like the combination that’s fine. But in my opinion and many others that combination was fantastic although Jimmy only used it for the one album and up until March 69 live. Dazed and confused solo is the bridge pickup through the tonebender and I don’t think you can get a much more menacing tone than that! Sure playing that song like he did a couple years later live with the Les Paul and Marshall is a whole different thing and a wonderful trip, but the original stands alone. And how many more times solo that is the next pickup on the telecaster and an equally incredible tone. And you shook me solo is one of the most incredible recorded solos I’ve ever heard! That is the telecaster with both pickups on which is out of phase which normally would be quite thin and nasal as heard on early bootlegs when you don’t have the fuzz on. But click on the fuzz and you get what is on Zeppelin I. But I can’t make you like the tone and that’s OK! One last thing. When you say single coils don’t work with overdrive. Tell that to David Gilmour! Some of the best guitar tones ever recorded. Single Tone Strat played through Hiwatt amps set clean with heavy drive pedals in front. Just saying!

    I appreciate your rebuttal but that makes no sense. Fender pickups are single coil and they don't "accept" overdrive well, which in turn causes them too sound fuzzier than the humbuckers used in Gibsons. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing as lots of people like yourself prefer that 60s fuzz tone. The only problem is that you have to roll the top end off to keep the highs from splitting your ears, which dampens the tone. Just listen to the solo on Communication Breakdown. No top on it at all and it sounds slightly muffled. I will agree that Dazed sounded good with the Tele tone. But I think tracks like You Shook Me and HMMT would've benefited more from the cleaner, more menacing crunch of a humbucker. My biased opinion of course.

    Led Zeppelin vs Deep Purple

    Fantastic !! I like how they are developing parts of "Lazy" here. I clearly need to get more live Purple. Thanks.

    EV, a $798 list price for THIS?!
  18. I think you’re right mate. Would have heard about it by now
  19. Sad but true, i suspect the book was it . The zero promotion and interest the other two showed in it, tells you all you need to know about the current state of play in the Zep camp. A great pity when you consider what other bands have done around their fiftieth ( for one recording!!!) anniversary .
  20. This thread is almost a year old. I think it's time to forget about it to be honest, I don't think we're getting a 'holy grail' live album.

    Zzzzz, another rehashed ripoff re re re release. Stolen traders recordings already available for FREE in all the usual places packaged with pretty pictures for an extortionate cost. Beats me how they keep getting away with it. GBP £622 or USD $798, they can GTF.

    The Evolution Of The Drum Set

    Thanks, Ross. The snare solos aren't easy when he mixes it all up like he does, but it sure feels good to finally nail it. The metronome varies from 50-120 bpm.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    Same here mate. I won't tell you how we will be baking in the mid 30'sC (~90F) most of this week with the occasional summer storm to cool things down.
  25. So this pushes Zep live material releases well back. Feb at the earliest??
