  1. For what it's worth...the following was on the Led Zeppelin Newsfeed and Ramble On Radio podcast: http://ledzepnews.com/2017/03/18/jimmy-pages-active-discussions-may-led-zeppelins-50th-anniversary/ Jimmy Page’s ‘active discussions’ may be about Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary The “active discussions” that Jimmy Page is currently involved in may be about activity surrounding Led Zeppelin’s fiftieth anniversary, Led Zeppelin podcast Ramble On Radio said in its latest episode. Last week we reported that Page has been in “active discussions” to perform as part of the Desert Trip festival in 2018. However, Ramble On Radio host Brian Gardiner said in his podcast that the “Oldchella” rumour is a euphemism, and instead the rumour is about possible future Led Zeppelin activity planned for 2018. The original rumour from last week came from a respected Led Zeppelin fan who does seem to have inside knowledge of the band’s activity. What’s not clear right now is what the rumoured discussions are about. They could be about a one-off show, a series of shows, or even the release of new material. The only thing we know for sure is that it’s still early days.
  2. Feb. 23: Superchunk @ Teragram Ballroom Feb. 24: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club @ Fonda Theatre March 2: Robert Plant & SSS @ Orpheum Theatre Kind of surprised Robert is only playing one night in L.A.
  3. Scared Straight 1978 Led Zep tee

    Totally an unofficial t-shirt. Since these were New York/New Jersey kids, I second Steve's hunch that the kid bought it at one of the 1977 MSG concerts.

    It's called satire.
  5. What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    Hard Rock Monday. Aerosmith before they became Glen Ballard pussies. Happy 40th birthday "Van Halen"! 🎂
  6. Depends on how you feel about Trump. Lot of anti-Trump imagery in the show.
  7. Since the last thread was purged, I am resurrecting it for all of us 'foodies'. Post a description and/or photo of what you are eating now or what was your most recent meal. Since breakfast kicks off the day, I'll begin this thread with my breakfast that I'm about to tuck into: eggs sunny side up, bacon, French toast, orange juice.
  8. QOTSA at the Fabulous Forum tonight!
  9. Random Thoughts v.3

    The NRA congratulates Nikolas Cruz on exercising his 2nd Ammendment rights. It's take-charge, gung-ho citizens like Cruz that exemplify the American Spirit and spit in the eye of the bleeding-heart, do-gooder liberals that want to deny Americans the thrill of shooting up a school full of soft-targets. America was built on violence, by God, and the NRA will not stand for anything that decreases violence. Gun and ammunition manufacturers have families to feed and we can't have their business suffer. Sorry for those sad failures that were killed but maybe if they had exercised their 2nd Ammendment right, instead of being snowflakes, they would still be alive and they would feel the glorious satisfaction of shooting to death another human being. Arm the teachers. Arm the students. Arm everybody. NRA Seig Heil!
  10. Random Thoughts v.3

    Absolutely. I listen to live bootlegs more than the studio albums and they played "Stairway to Heaven" at every concert post-March 5, 1971 except for June 3, 1977. So that's a lot of "Stairway"s.

  12. Random Thoughts v.3

    Yeah, maybe in your fantasy bizarro world. In the real world history and FACTS will show differently. Obama: 18 verifiable lies told over his entire 8 years in office. Trump: Over 100 lies told in just his first 10 months of office. And unlike Obama and other presidents, who when confronted with the correct information would stop telling the lie, Trump keeps telling the lies over and over. So keep lapping up that koolaid, lapdogs. History is recording who is on America, the Constitution, and Democracy's side and who is on the lying, racist, narcisisstic, man-child's side.
  13. Random Thoughts v.3

    Let's see...first white men get butthurt over a black man being president. Now men are butthurt over not being able to grab the pussy and rape and pillage like in days of old. What a bunch of snowflakes. Reminds me of the Iron John idiots who used to bang on drums in the woods and howl like wolves. Was hoping those Robert Bly-brainwashed fools had disappeared.

    Jesus, snow is still on the ground. Hahaha. Why in such a rush to see your Orioles fail again, Rick? 😜
  15. Winter Olympics in South Korea 2018

    With the East Germans and Russians doping for years, and the fact that entire cities and countries are left bankrupt after offering their heads upon a platter to host the Olympics, and NBC turning the Olympics into a Hallmark Channel TV movie, and the addition of too many needless and questionable so-called "sports", my interest in the Olympics has been on the wane for a long time. Then Larry Nassar pretty much killed whatever interest was left. The conviction and sentencing of Larry Nassar isn't the end...it should only be the beginning. These hundreds of girls weren't just preyed upon by Larry Nassar. They were served willingly to Larry Nassar and then abandoned by the IOC and USOC and Michigan State University officials who should have known better. What kind of idiot stipulates in a contract that a man can have access to a girl's room any time he wants and demand a physical and if she refuses he can then keep her off the team? What kind of organization forces girls apart from their families and friends and do not allow them the doctor of their choice? These girls were failed by EVERYONE associated with the Olympic gymnastic team and the US Olympic organization as a whole. I will not give one cent of my money or one minute of time to these monsters. They all belong in hell. I know some people will say that there are other athletes that have trained so hard for this moment...the lugers, the skaters (don't tell me there hasn't been abuse with some of these girls...it's only a matter of time before the other shoe drops), the snowboarders and skiers. I'm sure they work hard and aspire to represent their country and all that. Sorry, I can't work up much enthusiasm for them. Even the whole Olympic ideal seems antiquated at this point...or been twisted. The notion of the world coming together in the interests of sportsmanship and competition sounds noble. But in actuality, it exacerbates ugly nationalism. Why else does the media focus on the medal count? Why else do Olympic athletes face shame, and in certain backward countries death, if they don't bring home the gold? All the money spent on the Olympics seems wasted and could be better served elsewhere.
  16. Robert Plant sounds pretty happy and comfortable where he is right now. This is from the Toronto Star a couple days ago. https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/music/2018/02/11/robert-plant-has-a-sensational-new-band-so-why-would-he-get-led-zeppelin-back-together.html
  17. What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    That's a lotta bad news, folks. Death and illness...my condolences and get well wishes to the respective parties.
  18. 2017 NFL Thread

    See Walter's post. This. I feel for the poor guy. The Colts have joined the Browns as the NFL's dumpster fire franchises. Hmmm, can we add Dan Snyder's Taters to that group?
  19. Allman Brothers Band @ Winterland September 26, 1973. The only post-Duane Allman and Berry Oakley ABB show in my collection.

    Splurged on some deluxe box sets...
  23. football

    That would be a 5-1 smackdown by Man City. Liverpool 2 nil over Southampton today to sit snugly in third place.
  24. Random Thoughts v.3

    It depends on if they improved on the flat-sounding video-track. Also, why didn't they just keep it to one show? May 24 and May 25 both require two dvds to encompass the complete concert. So what is the point in selling a 3-disc set that only has one-hour of the May 25 show? Either sell the two nights separately or package both nights in a 4-disc package. This sounds like a rip-off.
