  2. Jimmy page has every right to retire from recording and from performing. He's earned that, and, he should just say so, announce his retirement. But to keep hinting that "something's in the works" gives everyone the right to speculate on all aspects of what he is and is not doing. I, for one, am not encouraging Jimmy to "get out there and 'do something'". I did that in 1983, but that was over -30- years ago...
  3. Well, you know, that there's a 3 month lead to most magazine covers. But that said, fo there's nothing to report, then 3 months, 6 months.... it doesn't matter.
  4. I still say Jimmy will never "star" again in any musical capacity. He'll have other guitarists onstage, and maybe he'll play a few rhythm parts. Which some, obviously, would be ecstatic about. 'Cause, you know, it's Jimmy Page !! Jimmy and Zeppelin management really dropped the ball by not filming and releasing some of the better concerts on EACH tour. If they didn't know they were making magic onstage each night, then I don't know what to tell them. Legacy... Record Sales and Awards ??? Really... Can't fix broken. I just expected more from the World's Greatest Band. I expect nothing musically from Jimmy Page. I can't afford the drugs it would take to experience Nirvana with each post Zeppelin JP release.
  5. Teenagers should stop rolling their cannabis joints with tobacco if they don't want CANCER, researcher warns Ian Hamilton is a weed researcher based at the University of York Youngsters should smoke the drug on its own to avoid health risks, he claimed Tobacco is linked to some 17 types of cancer, including lung, throat and bladder But no such links to the disease have ever been found from smoking the herb
  6. Another Cultural Icon of my youth gone I got to meet Adam at a fan convention in Plano, Tx. in 2001. He autographed my DVD of Batman: The Movie. He was the real deal, truly appreciative of his fans. Being dropped off by my parents at the local theater on that summer morning in 1966, to see Batman: The Movie, as a 10 year old, is one of the highlights of my movie-going career.... Adam is now on assignment in the heaven-lies.
  7. Alice Cooper reunites original band for UK tour
  8. Well, first of all, the OP poorly titled his thread. I wouldn't have even come in here if I'd known from the title the thread's purpose was too dis on all of the LZ songs not liked from the later albums.... I don't think the OP even defined what the "later" albums were... That said, I have come to love Carouselambra over the years, it's really grown on me, and, I can say I'd love to hear it performed live, if that occasion ever arose.
  9. If a Led Zeppelin Movie is ever made, I'd like to suggest that Phil Campion be given an audition for the role of Peter Grant.
  10. From someone that saw the band in 73 and 75 and 77, I never had an issue with Plant's vocal range limitations. He delivered the songs as best he could. The 75 tour is the most feel good tour for me. The look and feel and vibe of the the 75 tour, for me, surpassed 73 and 77. Jimmy's solo performance on D&C on March 4th was incendiary. I suppose that was THE Highpoint of my LZ concert-going career... I've listened to the 3/4/75 CD at very loud levels with headphones on, and that truly reminds me of what it sounded like a few rows back from the stage. The 77 NQ excess was too much for me. But Kashmir was perfected and delivered best in 77. imo.
  11. It's a Beautiful 64 F. A Break from the muggy heat!!
  12. Oh, I understand that. It's the convenience of having just one disc for 1 concert, instead of multiple discs for just one concert. Zeppelin released an audio Blu-ray of the O2 show, for example.
