    This Day in Music

    I can't recall the thread over there, but he's the guy who posts and reposts Queen's sales figures to prove his point. The thread may be something to do with LZ, not sure.

    Definitive Blueberry Hill

    That is "A Sweeter Blueberry" I downloaded a Hi Res DVD-A version years ago It's pretty good I play it more than the other sources but that's because the whole show is on one disc. I wouldn't buy it though.

    Companion discs are rubbish

    Trolls ? That's a bit cheeky, is no one entitled to an opinion.

    Random Thoughts v.3

    Good grief, that's crazy, the world is turning puritanical. Next thing you know Banter will become a hate crime. Snowflakism is apparently virulently infectious, were living in a world of wusses. Now we have this. "Kleenex Bins Mansize " https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45899784

    Well, I signed up. Tbh I haven't got a clue how fantasy footie works, I have never partaken before so I just did an auto pick, ended up with a not so hot team. Let's see how this flows. Don't really know if I have enough interest to spend the time.

    Guilty Pleasures

    Nothing cheesy or pop rock about the Cars first album. It got played to death amongst my peer group extremely loudly in those last years of the 70's. The Cars were considered to be "New Wave" defo not "Pop" (shudder). Funny though they were a short lived fad "Candy O" their second album didn't get the same love "The Cars" got, they were resigned to the that was then bin, then in 1985 "Drive" became a huge hit worldwide which gave them a whole new audience. As for my guilty pleasure, I don't have one at the moment. I did have love for the 'Blues Stomp' of Adele's "Rollin' in the Deep", but that was nearly ten years ago.
  8. Maybe (benefit of doubt) except for any onstage activity, that never happened.
  9. Probably IIRC in the music press NME, Melody Maker, Sounds etc, in the UK at least.
  10. It's more or less the same as the quickly done version that was up on Dime the other week only this time done with a bit more care. Yes, Black Dog is from the 28th, there because it's a better version, not a snag at all. You're going to love it, it's miles better than ESVD's incomplete overpriced rip off version.

    Dead right Joolz. Our cat spends more time outdoors than inside most of the year, spring, summer autumn she only comes in to eat then she's off out. Winter she comes in to sleep during the day, she rarely stays in at night only if it's really cold or windy, snow too will keep her in. She treats the place like an hotel. Anyway Elephants, a pic from our last visit to Chester Zoo

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    We all see things differently (an age thing maybe), I'm not in the least bit bothered there is nothing from the 75 and 77 tours (I don't count in house video). For me by 1973 Zeppelin as a live act had already peaked, I've got dozens of 75/77 shows but I much prefer listening to earlier shows, so I don't see where there is any blame. As for the book, I'll pick it up eventually, I'm in no hurry right now.
  13. True, but Jim needed the other people around him, he got lucky finding the relatively unknown Plant and Bonham and along with JPJ all four helped to fulfil his vision. I'm trying to think of any other musicians from the late sixties that could have given Jim that ten year high and I can't think of any. Terry Reid would have fizzled out after one or two albums, he's a great vocalist but he does not have the frontman panache Plant has.
  14. Four geneii not just one, JPJ is equally a genius to Page as are Bonham and Plant in their own way, don't be giving Jimbo all the credit..
  15. No it isn't, I can't here it, so where is it.

    If you had a time machine...

    I've heard that it's the Welsh that ride sheep, but it's only a rumour. A Cowboy here is a tradesman who will leave a job half and badly done, nothing to do with things that go Moo, I believe over their you call them Flakes.

    If you had a time machine...

    Ha, I can't imagine having played Cowboys and Americans rather than Cowboys and Injuns.

  19. More likely, there were no "good old days" those guys were just doing a job, same old boring shit day after day, load in set the levels load out eat sleep, load in set the levels load out eat sleep, oh, mustn't forget the driving from town to town, boring.. Workers not fans.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    My mistake, all those videos are real, lesson to oneself, don't rely on crappy laptop speakers, think I'll get me coat......

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    Beatbo doesn't even get to the disputed section of Taurus, he stops the track as it get's to the acoustic guitar part. Another thing there is NOT ONE genuine vesion of Taurus on YouTube, they are all fake, they have all been edited to remove the acoustic guitar section that is disputed and some other unrelated guitar part edited in I can't find one that matches the version I have.. I am going to repeat myself, I first heard Taurus over forty years ago and I have always thought that Taurus and STH shared some SIMILARITES, they are NOT the SAME .
  23. I'll be long gone, but I would be 111.
  24. Black Dog is from 28/9/71.
