  1. To my ears. This is how Rival Sons shore up album rise. Before the Fire-B/Pressure and TIme-A/EP-A/Head Down-A+/Great Western Valkyrie-A++/Hollow Bones-B. They are a really great band and emulae Zeps live improve Groove.
  2. Just speculating. After flirting with different styles. Do you think that Robert will return to his Zeppelin roots on his next album. It seems like he has been really trying to get away from any type of songs that bring to mind his Zeppelin roots. Esspeically his last couple of albums. For some reason that I have yet to articulate well. I think that Page is going to stay closer to his Zeppelin roots for his new album when it comes out. What do you all think?
  3. Rival Sons/Led Zeppelin/James Brown's JB's/AC/DC,The Rolling Stones.
  4. I am on the Rival Sons Facebook page. These guys are the real deal and they have a lot of great songs. Its one thing for one or two songs to hit big and have filler. Its another thing for at least 90% of the songs I hear from Rival Sons to really hit the spot. Everyone tries to link them to Zep, but for me. Its the Songwriting craft that both bands have in common more than anything else. Rival Sons to me have a better edit button on their songs and stretch out live. The added thing they have that Zep don't is that Rival Sons can reference Zeps era. Where Zep could only really look to the blues and 50's rock and roll/some english folklore as well. Rival Sons are in the Studio as we speak, as of this post. The album will be produced by Dave Cobb and we should see a Jan/Feb release,because they give themselves at least a month to cook with songs. They also start the Deep Purple tour in Nov. I am also sure Rival Sons want some time with thier families before they do basically do Deep Purple/Black Sabbath back to back.
  5. My Fave band. Really great guys and I have met 4 of them so far. They are the Zeppelin of their generation.
  6. These guys are great live and I have met some of them in person at their concerts, when they do meet and greets. Everyone should check them out.
  7. Just curious. With the exception of Babe. Do you all see major progression with Zep songs such as Communication Breakdown/Dazed and Confused and How Many More Times from Denmark May 19/1969 to Royal Albert Jan 6 1970. What are the the things that you think separates the performances and whats the big difference. Robert Plant voice seems more dry and rough in 69. More fluid and sparky in 70. Wow what a difference in about 9 months or so. Even Page sounds more Mage like with his usual tricks. Bonzo and Jones are solid. Bonzo looks like he about to destroy that drum kit in 69 where as in 70 I feel like he drumming on some classic car like a cadilac. JPJones is great on both. For some reason with the Denmark show. Zep sounds dry and scratchy. Royal Albert more exotic voodoo safari. On The Song Remains the Same. Zep sound more Slick. Like a well oiled Magic Show. I am just trying to gauge the Trajectory of Zeps live show documented on Video.
  8. Thats a great line up. Although I say that Rival Sons are really going to be the main act to watch. They are really great. I mean Zeppelin Great. They have a new album called Great Western Valkyrie coming out.
  9. For me I will go by Album. I am using abbreviation just to cut down writing out all the songs. LZ1-GTBT/BIGLY/CB/YTIGC/HMMT LZ2-The whole Album except for Thank You LZ3- The whole album Zoso-The whole album HOTH The whole album except for DM PG the whole album P-ALS/FYL/NFBM ITTOD-FITR/C/ITE/IGC SRTS-The whole album Coda-The whole album If I had to cherry pick it would be.... GTBT/HMMT/LS/RO/LLM/HB/BD/MMH/RR/WTLB/NQ/DD/All of PG and on P-FYL/ALS and on ITTOD-FITR/IGC/C In my head. When I think of LZ. I always think of slow suductive riffs more than the faster ones. Like I think of Kashmir and When the Levee breaks more than Rock and Roll and Communication Breakdown.
  10. There has been a lot of buzz about Rival Sons lately.
  11. So we all listen to Zep in different ways. By record/cd/Mp3. So do you all think that the new Zep we get in June 2014 will be worth buying in terms of sonic landscape and extras? Do you think this is a cash grab? For those of you that are more MP3 dependent. Will you replace what you have with the remastered? For me. The only way I would do a replacement of the Zep Remasters are if there is a significant difference in quality. Like hearing things I did not hear before. Also any speculation on what the alternate takes will be like. I have heard an alternate of WTLB. I have that and the original. I like both takes. I like the faster version for tempo. Yet I like the ending of the original when Page does a mini solo at the end, which on the faster take is too mixed in with the main riff. I will listen to it all. Yet it will have to be extremely crystal clear. I would lean towards more of a Physical Graffiti clean up than the rest of the catalog. I find Wanton Song and Custard Pie vocals too muddy.
  12. Rival Sons are a great band. I love those guys. They are coming out with a new CD in June of 2014. They have 15 songs done and they said there is a bit more acousitc stuff on the new one. They had 6 weeks this time. As opposed to about 20 days.
  13. So from what some of you have known about Zep. Who would you say their main blues influence? Howling Wolf/Albert King/Muddy Waters/Son House/Robert Johnson. I have been listening to a lot of HWolf and its great. Esspecialy his Psychedelic 1969 album.
  14. The Oliver Stone Movie made Morrison look like he had extrem mental problems and wanted to cause problem. He was in coherent.
  15. Yes I am at it again. They are really both iconic in imagery and influence. They both were into Rock and Blues. As a Band.... The Doors-Jim and Ray to me lead the band. As Robert/Jimmy did in Zep. The Doors seemed more like Bad Boys than Zep. Songs. Zep had more Variety. The Doors had this gritty Nocternal vibe to their songs. My 3 great Doors Songs are Light my Fire/Riders of the Storm/The Wasp. My 3 great Zep songs are HMMT/WTLB/Dazed and Confused 1973. Jim vs Robert. Jim to me is a little bit more Cool and trance like in his vocals. Robert has more pounce and prowl in his vocal delivery. Robbie vs Jimmy. Both are great guitarits. Robbie has more of a Snake/Spidery guitar sound. He does not go into Dive Bombs and way pedals as much. Jimmy has way more tricks in his arsenal. Robbie's playing style is more on the cool side as well. Were as Jimmy's sound has more sorcery to it. Densmore vs Bonham. Densmore to me sound like his drumming is more like Jazz. Bonham has more of a Gorilla on the hunt and can do way more than Densmore in making his kit sing. Ray vs JPJ. Both are great. Yet I feel like when it comes to Keys. Ray really made it more dominant. Ray's Bass Keys vs JPJ Bass. JPJ has a funk feel. The Doors to me their sound is really trapped in that late 60's vibe. Where Zep to me have a more timeless sound. Anyways I will chime in more when I have more time. I do think that both bands were really important. I do feel like Jim Morrison should have been called Jim Morrison and The Doors. Where as LZ were more 4 working parts and not one member really over shadowed the band.
