  1. What is the best Led Zeppelin concert recording or bootleg?
  2. I was reading the biography Robert Plant: A Life by Paul Rees. I don't consider it to be a very trustworthy source, as I've already found several inaccuracies and Rees doesn't cite his sources in a way that be easily be checked. However, some of the stories in here are just too entertaining and funny that I'd just like them to be true. Like this one: On page 57 in Chapter 4, Rubber Man, Rees mentions (with no quotes or indication of any source) that Robert went to see The Who at the Kidderminster Town Hall in May (of 1966, I think, possibly 1967. Rees only says the month but was talking about 1966 previously) and at the gig Pete Townshend sang lead vocals because apparently Roger Daltey had walked out and after the show Robert waited for Pete and offered to sing for The Who. Has anyone ever heard this before or have any sources on it? Like I said before, I don't trust this book, most of the stories about his life prior to Zeppelin seem to be based on rumors and word of mouth from acquaintances mixed in with a few actual coversations with Robert, so I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't founded in reality but I was curious in case it was. Thanks! (also I appalogize if this is in the wrong place. I just joined and this is my first post after stalking the forum a bit without being signed up. I did look to see if there was already a thread I could add to and I found the book one, but there wasn't a lot of discussion in that thread and I didn't want to change the format. So please let me know if I should post my questions somewhere else.)
  3. Plant & Johnson Doc.

    Enjoyed hearing Robert so clearly relaxed & enjoying life on the Sky Arts Docu. Surprised & disappointed he referred to "Page" rather than the familiar "Jimmy" when discussing previous post Zep collaborations. Why would he do that?
  4. Full release from the Royal Albert Hall below. Ticket link is here.
  5. So, I had been wishing that Zeppelin would tour one last time so I could see them once, missed them as a kid and kicking myself for it. I figure they wouldn't be as good as they were 20 years ago, but still, cool. I have been keeping track of the back & forth between Plant & Page about reuniting and was frustrated by the outcome. HOWEVER, I have been listening to alot of Plant's later work and came up with a theory; Was Plant ever really into the harder, "metal" type hard rock? Most of the work he's done has been slower blues, folk, and nearly country music as with Alison Krauss. NOTE: I love this later work, so this isnt a slam on it! So, to you folks out there that know Plant better, what do you think? Thank you!
  6. This really touched me. http://onstagemagazine.com/the-real-reason-for-robert-plants-tears-during-stairway-to-heaven/
  7. Do you guys think the o2 Kashmir was the best ever? Or was it the 1979 Knebworth?
  8. UK Visit

    Hello all, I will be visiting the United Kingdom this May. I want to take advantage of the trip and find places to visit that have significance in relation to Led Zeppelin. Whether it be venues they have played, places they have lived, or museums. Please let me know!
  9. So far there are already a couple of gigs booked, and who knows how things develop, but here's to great (new?!) music being enjoyed by audiences wherever Robert plays whether solo or with the Sensational Space Shifters So there are the two dates at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow: January 31 and February 1, 2016 as part of a tribute to Bert Jansch. Proceeds go to the Bert Jansch Foundation. And in March, Robert and SSS will perform at the Okeechobee Festival in Florida (March 4, 5, 6, 2016). http://okeechobeefest.com/#aloompa-lineup
  10. Radio documentary here with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant talking about formation and the history of Led Zeppelin, along with Noddy Holder from Slade and former Melody Maker editor Chris Charlesworth. http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/pages/led_zeppelin_story
  11. Has anyone here heard this concert? It has pitifully few views for such a GREAT performance-- perhaps because it lacks video! Please check it out, and tell us what you think!
  12. Hi all, first post! I've noticed that Robert Plant has made a drawing to support The Big Draw charity. It got me wondering, what other artwork has been created personally by the band? So thought it might be fun if everyone shared their pictures of Led Zeppelin artwork, or examples of any other art the band made outside music. By the way the bidding on the Robert Plant drawing is only at £100 at the moment, so it might be a good opportunity for any passionate Zep fans! What do you think is the story behind this drawing?
  13. Thought this deserved its own thread to focus attention on such a worthy cause: Robert Plant, Tinariwen record exclusive tracks for British Red CrossIconic vocalist Robert Plant and critically acclaimed world music group Tinariwen record exclusive tracks for The Long Road, a ground breaking concept record, created with the British Red Cross, who support refugees and asylum seekers here in the UK and through the International Red Cross network.Robert Plant records new version of Elbow track ‘The Blanket Of Night’, which tells the tale of refugees attempting a treacherous journey to seek asylum in the UKWatch video interview with Robert Plant, discussing his involvement in The Long Road below.

  14. So most of these have been posted already, but as they accumulate, I thought it would be good to have updates and news about initiatives that the Zep lads support all organized in one place. First up is Jimmy's patronage of the wonderful Outside Edge Theatre Company. An amazing and important arts outlet: “Outside Edge produces artistically excellent work that challenges and entertains audiences at the same time as making a real difference. Edge’s work with addicts – and the ways in which their performances awaken audiences and provoke debate – is quite simply stunning.” —Jimmy Page, company patron.

  15. Beautiful number, with a whole pallete of different renditions. One of my favourite ones is the first rough version on the LZIII deluxe version. It's just so damn raw. Who cares if it's sloppy, or an alternative take? My "hands down favourite version" is the BBC version from April 1971. It is tight (Bonzo and Jonesy in top form), Jimmy is not too flashy, but rather more presice and soulful in his playing, and last but not the least... Percy's on fire!!! Nuff said, I'd like to hear what y'all think?!
  16. Out of curiosity, if you guys had the ability to hear live performances of the instrumentals from TSRTS with Robert Plant singing the original melodies with his pre-73/late-72 vocal range, would you be interested? Primarily on songs like "Rock And Roll," "Black Dog," "Over The Hills And Far Away," "Stairway To Heaven," "Heartbreaker," and "Whole Lotta Love." Or do you prefer the augmented melodies that Plant sings with his more limited vocal range? I feel like TSRTS would be an infinitely more interesting and energetic show if Plant had still been capable of hitting the original melodies (while still ad-libbing in the same fashion that he was known for in their live performances). In my opinion, "Over The Hills And Far Away" died the day Plant lost his ability to sing the original melody, no matter how amazing the instrumentation. I just want to get a good feel for the consensus out there. Do you like the augmented vocal melodies? Or do you wish Plant were still able to hit those soaring high notes and sing the original melodies for those performances (and all subsequent tours as well)?
  17. The Golden God of rock and roll Robert Plant had and still does have one of rocks most powerful voices in rock but no one can sing like that forever so the point of this topic is to get all of your personal opnions on which year or years do you think Plants vocals were the best and worst? was it the early blues tinged five octave vocal range of 1969, the screaming out of this world vocals of 1970, the high pitched poweful uncompromising vocals of 1971, the banshee vocals of 1972, the lower inconsistent but still good vocals of 1973, the new post-surgery Raspy voice of 1975, the post flu tinged return to prowness vocals of 1977, the new powerful sound that coverd Knebwerth of 1979 or the matured vocals of 1980. All opnions are accepted and gladly heard
  18. Loved it from the first strum. Listen to beautiful closing song for "Love the Coopers" movie made in PittsburghWritten by Barbara Vancheri on Wednesday, 04 November 2015 10:47 am. This is the beautiful closing credits song from "Love the Coopers," filmed in Pittsburgh earlier this year (that's why the snow looks so authentic) and arriving in theaters Nov. 13. The song, written by Charles Duncan, is performed by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. Here is the information from Republic Records about the music: REPUBLIC RECORDS will release the "Love the Coopers" official soundtrack album. Capturing the Coopers' holiday theme, the soundtrack includes the studio reunion of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss on their Christmas original "The Light of Christmas Day," their first recording since 2009's platinum-certified Grammy Award® Winner for "Album of the Year," Raising Sand.

Debuting on Friday, November 13, 2015 through all digital retailers. The highly anticipated film opens in theaters everywhere the same day. Enjoy a new holiday tradition with the "Love the Coopers" Official Soundtrack Album. TRACKLISTING:1. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - The Light of Christmas Day2. Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal3.

Nick Urata - Fear of Silence About LOVE THE COOPERS:When four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday. http://blogs.post-gazette.com/arts-entertainment/mad-about-the-movies/45332-listen-to-beautiful-closing-song-for-love-the-coopers-movie-made-in-pittsburgh Quite the group of artists on that soundtrack list. ‘Love The Coopers’ Soundtrack, Aka Love Robert Plant & Alison Kraussby Patrick Hipes November 4, 2015 8:58am The soundtrack for CBS Films’ holiday comedy Love The Coopers won’t street until November 13, the same day the movie hits theaters, but this morning’s tease pretty much made my day: there’s a new original song (a Christmas one) on the album from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, who in 2007 teamed for the Grammy-winning Album of the Year Raising Sand but haven’t recorded anything together since. It’s a coup for CBS Films, which is good at the care and feeding of the music in its films — the studio guided the cool folk soundtrack (OK, they had help from uber-producer T Bone Burnett) for the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis that featured music from Bob Dylan, Marcus Mumford and the Punch Brothers and of course the film’s stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver and Justin Timberlake. The Coopers soundtrack, from Republic Records, also features two Dylan songs, as well as Nina Simone, Sting and Fleet Foxes among others. Love The Coopers centers on four generations of a family who come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, and a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down. Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Amanda Seyfried, Anthony Mackie and Marisa Tomei lead the ensemble cast helmed by Jessie Nelson. http://deadline.com/2015/11/love-the-coopers-robert-plant-alison-krauss-new-song-soundtrack-1201606941/

  21. Houses of the Holy photoshoot

    Hey guys, So I saw this picture some time ago and always assumed that man is Robert, but now I'm not so sure and I just can't seem to find any information on this. Every article I read about the Houses of the holy photo shoot only concerns the children but never says anything about the grown-up models. Does anybody know something about this?
  22. Okay, this is probably going to be a rather short thread but I often wonder what the context was for this photo? It was probably from a photo shoot or something right? Was Robert told to write this on the chalkboard? Was Jimmy there too? By "golden god", although unlikely, is Robert referring to himself? Any info would be appreciated! I've always loved this photo its pretty funny seeing Robert write that about his man Jimmy. I wonder how good of friends they REALLY were...
  23. I am curious of your opinions on Jimmy Page's best solo(s).
