    The Best blues song ever made by Zeppelin.

    I never been a fan of WTLB as one of Zeppelin's best songs. There's nothing wrong with WTLB, but, it is what it is, and I don't revere it the way fans AND critics do. Best LZ Blues: SIBLY from TSRTS

    And.... all the money in the world, cannot coax Robert Plant to tour with Led Zeppelin. See, money isn't as wonderful as you thought!

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    What's all this talk about wanting "new stuff" to be worked on. Even if "that" happened, they'd still be expected to perform the "old stuff" on tour. And how would they agree, all agree to perform it. Plant solo style, Page & Plant style, O2 style??? There's not a pipe big enough for these dreams. I'm expecting nothing. If it wasn't O2 style, I wouldn't be interested at all. There is not reunion, or reunion gig in the works. But no one can stop you from dreaming..

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    Well, it could be an extra bonus when you buy the book... a "video disc" if you will, where each photograph could be looked at. I answered the second part above. I don't start businesses, I critique them. Psych. If you think wanting to look at the band in detail as tedious, then that's you!

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    As much as everybody loves Led Zeppelin, why can't we get a website to access to view each of these shots in detail. Why the fuck is that asking too much? I'd like to the same for the shots used for the cover of the 1969 hardback.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Not likely.... Reason # 1 --- I still have much to mine and unearth from the music period of my youth, which I naturally favor. Reason # 2 --- Not that much motivated to "look around". That was never my style. And it didn't have to be, back in the day. There was just an embarrassing amount of good "low hanging fruit", that I never developed the skills to wade through mountains of shit to find a diamond. After all, my "era" IS the Motherload...

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Some people (not you) think that the world now revolves around a band (Greta Van Fleet) that reminds them of the band that disbanded 40 years ago. That's ... sort of pathetic to me. But, that's just me...from my world view. As we age, we look back on the "days of our youth"... for me that would be childhood with The Beatles, and, as a teen to early 20's -- Led Zeppelin. That will always be, and you can't take it away from me. I'm passionate about the music of my childhood and youth. It's only natural. And I do take the smug position that the music of my childhood and youth, is better than the music that was "current" in your childhood and youth (not you... specifically... just everyone in genera,l that grew up in a different time...)

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    It's not sad at all.... What's sad is that fate did not allow professional live recordings and video from the '75 and '77 tours to be made and released. IT's just a book with photos of Zeppelin that most long time fans have already mostly seen. The fact that it's in a book officially released by the band is not that big deal. The History of Zeppelin is mostly wrapped up in bootleg recordings and photos. That was their own doing. They've no one to blame but themselves...

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    After listening to some of the O2 show again, I must say, that I think JPJ gives the best performance of the four. There are some real magical moments on the O2 soundtrack for me. Real goose bumps. JPJ is as consistently good as he ever was, that 1/2 of the greatest rhythm section that ever was. Add to that, the moments of brilliance from Robert & Jimmy, and this recording is a must have for me. Jason is adequate and competent, but, he never surpasses his father in any way. It was only after Bonham's death that I eventually came to the realization of what a supremely integral part of Led Zeppelin that Bonzo was.

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    I disagree. Singing in a different range, but remaining true to the vocal phrasing, is perfectly acceptable to me. Really, there are those that wrote off the band as soon as Robert could note hit the high notes and screams of LZ I before 1973. When Robert is singing LZ with all his heart and soul, as a member of Led Zeppelin... he can't be touched. He did that in 2007 for the 02 show.
