  1. Thor: Ragnarok trailer (w/ Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song)

    I have listened to other versions of IS on YouTube, the 2007 Mothership version, and the 2014 Re-mastered version, but man, this IS song mix for the THOR trailer sounds awesome! I wish the entire Zeppelin catalog could be mixed the same way this IS was! I listened with Bose over-the-ear headphones on a ZTE smartphone enhanced by Dolby Atmos software. Does anyone here have information on why the THOR Trailer IS music sounds so much better than other sources??

  4. Bali Mt. Agung set to erupt

    Authorities issue red alert aviation warning as Mount Agung in Bali continues to erupt. Magma has reached surface of volcano amid fears of 'explosive eruption.' Denpasar International Airport was prepared for the worst - and has now closed. Authorities raised the volcano alert to the highest level on Monday and ordered people within 10km of the mountain to evacuate amid fears of a major eruption. Experts say the eruption has switched to a magmatic type eruption from a steam-driven one; predict ash cloud could reach more than 6000m. Mt Agung sits more than 3000 metres high over eastern Bali. It last erupted in 1963, killing more than 1,000 people and razing several villages. More than 50,000 Indonesians were evacuated in September when experts warned an eruption was imminent - Some 25,000 people have been unable to return to their homes http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5119527/Mount-Agung-Ash-cloud-forces-Denpasar-Airport-close.htm http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/wireStory/tens-thousands-stranded-bali-volcano-closes-airport-51401195
  5. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    If Led Zeppelin had been able to tour the US in 1980-1981, I think they might have replaced ALS with Carouselambra. And after many performances of Carouselambra, stretching it out, as only LZ can... fans would be as endeared to ITTOD as they were for Presence. But sadly, we'll never get to see this happen.
  6. Greta Van Fleet

    I'm sorry, but I didn't get a thrill going up my leg when listening to GVF. "Greta" ?? The first thing I think of when hear that is Greta Van Susteren. And that's a rock'n'roll downer in my book... As for the singer... he reminds me of the singer for The Black Crowes more than Robert Plant. Visually he reminds me of Justin Beiber. I've never liked like Chris Robinson. Yes, I know Jimmy toured with them, but Jimmy's not god. Jimmy was a rock god with Led Zeppelin. But outside of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy is just another musician to me. But if this shit floats your boat, then enjoy it!!

    Yes, even child rapist Roman Polanski can get some closure now. Marilyn sends his regards.
  8. The Song Remains the Same - Theater Marquee photos

    I attended the Dallas Premiere of TSRTS at the prestiegious Northpark theater. It was a charity showing, with the proceeds going to UNICEF. If Jimmy or any other band members were there, I did not see them. The Dallas premiere was the same day that the album was released, October 22, 1976.

  11. Live better than Studio

    While many fans, and casual Zeppelin fans are a-okay with the studio version of "Kashmir", I'm not, and never have been. In 1975, when playing the LP, Kashmir was not that impressive -- as recorded and mixed. But, otoh, Kashmir ended up being one of the most powerful live LZ songs, imo. I love the live versions of HOTH songs, but that album has got to be my least played LZ studio album. I find much of IV to be perfectly recorded, and prefer those to live versions. Four Sticks is incredible with a good pair of headphones on.
  12. Halloween Music

    What we did, was to loop most of Jimmy's violin bowing from D&C from TSRTS. And:
  13. Happy Halloween!

    IF I was going to dress up for Halloween, specifically for 10/31/17, then I would dress up as Martin Luther, Catholic professor of moral theology at the University of Wittenberg and town preacher, as this is the 500th Anniversary of Luther's nailing of the 95 Theses at the All Saint's Church on October 31st, 1517, or so tradition has it, that is considered the start of the Protestant Reformation.
  14. Outstanding Page performances after 1980

    Yes, let there be close ups of the crotch, belly button, nose hairs, and arses, to establish what's there. Then, just have a shot that gives the full stage showing all members, AND LET THE VIEWER DECIDE WHAT TO WATCH AND WHEN!!!! Every concert film should have that full stage shot as a camera angle option for the presentation!!
