  1. And it takes a well tuned kit to start with. Bonham really knew what he was doing with his hardware and tone, much like a lot of jazz drummers. It's odd but I'm not surprised how many drummers don't know shit about tuning their own kit. Page knew very well the old adage that it has to sound good before it hits tape. If you already sound good then micing is crucial because your job is to simply to not fuck it up, but it's not easy to do either. In a way Page's job was kinda easy in that the band already sounded good and could play, unlike other situations where the producer has to somehow make a band sound good, or hire outside musicians to complete a take. So many bands sound fine live but can't record, or can't adjust. It makes sense though seeing how Jones and Page stood in for so many other musicians for recording prior to Zep.
  2. Today I learned that strap-on spelled backwards is no-parts. I felt it necessary to share my discovery. Onward and upward.
  3. Yeah even the salads are off the charts. At fast food joints I get a kids hamburger and a diet coke. 300-350 cals. That's my lunch. Dine-in places I eat half and take the rest home like you.
  4. This is a better diet than most but calories still have to be counted. Counting calories is by far the most effective long term diet solution for fat loss as well as maintaining a weight. Exercise is good for you but has little effect on weight loss. Counting calories also educates you about food and what's in it, especially restaurant food. Some restaurant meals, the sit down type of restaurant, have an entire days worth of calories in 1 meal, yet most people count it as 1 of 3 meals per day. Check out reddit/r/loseit for complete instructions.
  5. When they start wering wigs and are overweight.., Anyways just kinda bugs me when they take up all the gigs, then again if they sell well then what does that say?
  6. I could never get into Aerosmith, not sure why, they seem to have a lot of good elements. Sometimes I can't tell if they're trying to be the Stones or Zeppelin. Then they went all glammy/big hair. Should be a good Phoenix show.
  7. True but picking up a guitar around the house and playing with a band are 2 different beasts. You can practice 8 hours a day by yourself and still feel sluggish with the band. Still no excuse though, I guess they somehow could've still rehearsed with just the 3 of them to stay in shape. Edit: Someone might've mentioned this before but for Robert and perhaps all of them, no one knew how long it would last so maybe it was balls out all the time. I guess by 72 maybe they should've known they would be around for awhile. Robert did mention lots of times about tea, lemon and honey, maybe that was the extent of knowledge of vocal care back then. Like put a hat on or you'll catch a cold, viruses don't care about hats.
  8. I tell you this, I'd fucking love to hang with Peter Grant, in any capacity. It's too bad he passed away. Great guy, interesting, down to earth, great sense of humour. It'd be a blast.
  9. This was a very tight band in many respects so I believe that they all agreed, subconsciously or whatever, to forego the 70's attire, not Plant demanding it. I think the only thing Plant demanded was the tours be short and that just so he could test the waters of being onstage again, correct if I'm wrong. I also don't believe, again correct me if I'm wrong, that ITTOD was any kind of Plant move, be it a change in sound or a new direction to or away from anything. To me the 2 major factors of how ITTOD came about was 1.) Jimmy not showing up and 2.) That new keyboard Jone's got. They sat around waiting with nothing to do so they started writing and whatever Jone's came up with on that keyboard. I don't believe there was any plan to make that album a certain way, it just happened.
  10. Amazing they did those 4 albums in just over 2 years. Man, their sleeve delays caused a few issues, makes it seem a bit more spread out. And think of the leftovers written in that period that made it to HOTH, PG and Coda.
  11. Do you think every now and then Page whips out the suits on a frolicky Saturday night? Carrying a bow, pointing at things. His girlfriend may not approve but her friends might.
  12. And it's not "just the money", you're talking kids educations, college, insurance, etc. It's way too much to give away.
  13. Also I'm sure it was a joint decision between him and Maureen. They probably weighed everything and thought it was best.
  14. Plus every headline would be ""Without Plant". They'd be answering more questions on Plant than the project itself. I'm reaching here but who knows.
  15. I liked Round and Round because it's a good pop song (it's a solid go-to drunken/stoned song because of the vocal melody) but I'v never heard any evidence of either guitarist being any good. Sure they can play the thing but is there anything that blows people away? I'm open to references.
