  1. Besides myself, how many other fans of Led Zeppelin are also big fans of HBO's "Game of Thrones"? I realize that this show is ongoing, with the new 3rd season not beginning until the end of March of 2013, however, I have become so immersed in this series that I have watched both seasons 1 and 2 numerous times since I became aware of the show about 10 months ago. I have HBO On Demand to thank for that. I got so enthralled with this show that I have begun to read the actual books that "Game of Thrones" is based on. So far, there are 5 books in the series (I am already halfway thru the second book. By the way, each book is at least, 900 pages long/paperback). I am not going to go into details about plots and storylines and characters of this Great show because that would be very long and very complicated. I trust that whoever reads this and has seen this show (and likes it) will know what I am talking about. So, anyone else a fan? I would love to hear any feedback. If you have never heard of this show but happen to read this post, I urge you to seek it out, via HBO, DVD, YouTube or Google, etc... You should not be disappointed.
  2. One of the many things I love about Led Zeppelin is their ability to "improvise" and it did get to the point of ego, excess and self indulgence in 1977. However, from their very beginning to their very end, Led Zeppelin improvised in one form or another. (I say this because I have listened to hundreds of bootlegs, I was 9 years old when Bonzo died). In some cases, I think that it was way too "Over the Top" and somewhat redundant to play one song for and up to 45 minutes in duration at almost every concert in 1977. Most of these songs have already been mentioned. I think that it would have been better (in hindsight) if Led Zeppelin would have "cut the waffle" in 1977 and played songs that they never (or rarely) played live. Some of the songs that I would have loved to hear are: Out on the Tiles When the Levee Breaks Your Time is Gonna Come Gallows Pole In the Light (My Favorite LZ Song) The Rover Hots on For Nowhere Carouselambra...
  3. Yes they are and I hope the Giants sweep the Cubs.
  4. I know that this is very appropriate post but maybe not in this topic, but I have said this before in other threads, I am all for the killing of a terrorist(s) (of any kind, in any country) that threatens and terrorizes and wantonly kills innocent people and civilians. More to the actual topic, I am sad and heartbroken that innocent Englanders lost their lives just wanting to see a concert and have a Good Time. Imagine the very more Outrage if this had happened at a Robert Plant concert in Manchester or Birmingham, England.

  6. For the first time in my life, I am rooting for the San Francisco Giants (they are playing the Cubs in Chicago).
  7. I just read that the last song Soundgarden played was "In My Time of Dying". Pretty odd choice of song considering what happened later that night.
  8. I just read that actor Powers Boothe has died at the age of 68 of natural causes. This sucks as I liked Powers.
  9. Cubs beat Cardinals 3-2. I watched the game and it was a Cubs game until the bottom of the 9th. The Cardinals had a chance to at least tie the game with 2 outs but did not prevail
  10. It was a nice reversal for the Cardinals and a not so nice reversal for your Orioles. Cardinals have won 16 out of their last 21 games. I am going to Saint Louis on July 5 and returning to Plano, Texas on July 8. I am going to see the Cardinals play the Miami Marlins on July 5 and the New York Mets on July 7. Two games with 2 different teams. I will traverse Saint Louis on July 6, revisiting all the memorable places that I lived, worked and hung out at when I lived in that great city for 18 years of my life during the 1980's and 1990's.
  11. Cool. Thanks for your input. I might buy OZ.
  12. You are good. I think that most of us "rivals" like to get a rise out of each other. There is still a lot of Baseball to play. I respect that the Orioles have a good record at this time, but I also respect that the Cardinals have come back from a 3-9 beginning record. I would think that a Baseball fan like yourself could respect such a "comeback"
  13. I will make this short: the Saint Louis Cardinals have won 15 of their last 20 games
  14. Without a doubt, Mr. Ronnie James Dio. (I Love you Ronnie).
  15. The Baltimore Orioles currently have a better record then the Cardinals but the Orioles are in second place behind the Yankees while the Saint Louis Cardinals are currently in first place. Again, anything can happen but historically the Cardinals have a better chance of making it to the World Series then your Orioles. Realistically, am I wrong?
  16. Baseball is a beautiful game. One can never predict how a certain team will do over the course of 162 games. As for my team, the Saint Louis Cardinals, they were at the record of 3 wins and 9 loses during the first two weeks of the season . Now they are currently in first place in the National League Central. I know that anything can happen in Baseball, but it is fun to root for a team (Cardinals) that are always a team to be reckoned with. There are only about 10-15 teams that you can say that about and the Saint Louis Cardinals are in the top 5 teams in that category.
  17. I did not mean to double post, I would appreciate any feedback or comments on what I just posted above. Again, thank.
  18. I did not want to start a new topic but this refers to television (actually cable tv). Has anyone who reads this ever seen the HBO show "Oz" or the Showtime series, "Homeland"? I am thinking about buying the complete series of both of the shows but want to read any + or - feedback first. Are these two shows were investing time in? Anyone? Thanks in advance for any responses.
  19. It still breaks My heart that Ronnie James DIO is no longer with US. I know that there are other threads related to Ronnie, however, I wanted to start a new one because He deserves all that His loyal fans can and do really appreciate. From what I have seen, read and heard, RJD really Loved and Appreciated His fans from all over the World. I had the privelage to see him twice and even got to shake His hand when He came offstage to greet all His fans. After Robert Plant, Ronnie James DIO is my favorite Singer. LONG LIVE RONNIE JAMES DIO!!! http://youtu.be/bkysjcs5vFU http://youtu.be/1jX5vJgXoDo http://youtu.be/wxxOPvLg7o0
  20. I don't know you but I do not believe one word of your post. I do not believe that you sat "3 feet away" Robert Plant. I could say more (and I will if prompted), however, I have more pressing matters to attend to and that is to drink more Beer. If you wish to challenge Me, feel free and compelled, I just have a strong feeling to doubt your "claim" and feel the need to call you out. Who knows, what you claim could be true but I (and others) would want real and definitive proof of this so-called "pub room" encounter with Robert Plant. Please respond.
  21. What would really interest Me is the accounts of Patti D'Arbanville. A good and close friend of Pamela. During Her time, Pattie was a very Beautiful Woman and also in to the "Scene". I saw a clip of Patti saying that when she met Jimmy Page, that He was the most beautiful man she had ever seen. Patti was and is a very accomplished American actress who has been in dozens of movies and was even in the Greatest TV Show of All-Time: The Sopranos.
  22. At one point in the Joe Walsh concert, there was a collage of pictures of Joe with various other Rock Stars and when two pictures of Joe and Jimmy flashed on the screen, the crowd went wild.
  23. Once again, I will be seeing Joe Walsh in about 17 hours from now. Joe Fucking Walsh, My 4th favorite Guitar Player.
