  1. So, we need a new Bumper Sticker: My Drummer can kick your Drummer's arse.
  2. I think, for consistency, all of the band members and road crew should go bald...
  3. As usual, a 100% performance by John Bonham. The audio, does not fully relate the power of what the audience felt that night..
  4. From photos on the internet, I've looked at the Pontiac speaker array on the stage. Without any speakers being hung from above, then yes, those in the upper deck at the back of the stadium, may not have felt the power of the sound as those in the other parts of the stadium. But, for any Zeppelin show, if the sound is impressive, then not being close to the stage is not a dealbreaker. Most Zeppelin arena shows allowed for even the nosebleed seats to get punched with sound. Here's a shot from the rear:
  5. 6am Heat Index at the break of day is 88F.
  6. Blade Runner
  7. IMTOD is one of my favorites from the O2 concert. TYG is one of my Zeppelin "Headphone" favorties -- the whole side actually.
  8. Gives a whole new meaning to Vegas "High Rollers".... Still legal to distribute tobacco smoke in the gaming areas of casinos. But pot smoke is not authorized in public places, for your safety.
  9. 1:30am Heat Index 91F
  10. Alice In Chains "Man In The Box" cover, begins with acoustic guitar and goes into electric guitar.
  11. I ordered some clothing from a site I hadn't visited before. I got a good price, but the shipping was $10. I went to and got a code for free shipping for that online retailer, and so I saved $10 just like that!
  12. It's been a long time coming.
  13. I still get goosebumps listening to the O2 Kashmir and the Symphonic Led Zeppelin Kashmir (with the Dawn at the great Pyramid introduction) on the big speakers in the den, but with the remembrance of the '77 Ft. Worth performance as the Kashmir reference point.
  14. The Glastonbury festival is due to take a 'fallow year' in 2018, a break that occurs every six years to allow the land to recover, although founder Michael Eavis suggested he would revoke that plan if a certain band agreed to perform. He said that he is 'already regretting' the decision to take a year out and, while he didn't reveal who the band is that could change his mind, he did add: 'It's not One Direction.' Go ahead and speculate
  15. I night have mentioned this before, so I'm not going to search it out, but, in all of my years I that went to see Zeppelin concerts (from 1970-1977), the SINGLE most EPIC experience, was in 1977, at the Ft. Worth concert, that being "Kashmir".
