    Still the greatest rock band!

    It's truly amazing. But remember, the '70's seemed to be able to accommodate a lovely broad soundscape for artists to successfully explore. Queen, The Who, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, The Stones, The Boss, Neil Diamond (yes, Neil Diamond) Neil Young, the list is endless.... It has to be the reputation for the live shows coupled with every album having no filler at all. They were great rock albums. While the song structures aren't "easy listening" as @Strider pointed out to me recently, they still are amazing to people who just love good music. Remember, that was the age of no internet, limited press (limited to rock magazines), album covers meaning a LOT, and it was truly the golden age of rock albums/tours. Basically word of mouth??? I'd be interested also in members who were teens in the '70s give a good take on it. What a time to be alive!!! BEST decade EVER.

    What Made You Happy today?

    Heard the 24/07 NQ that @Veggamattic suggested. Now THAT made me happy. It's stunning.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    Great, hopefully the mood in here will lighten somewhat to speculation instead of the near flood of disappointment. I hope the "de-mix" technology is suitably showcased to Mr Page and piques his interest SUPREME. Oh, well wow, that really puts a lot more back on the table... kinda thinking.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    Same here mate. I won't tell you how we will be baking in the mid 30'sC (~90F) most of this week with the occasional summer storm to cool things down.
  5. So this pushes Zep live material releases well back. Feb at the earliest??

    What Made You Happy today?

    Friday arvo. Got me wife beater and shorts on, waiting for the cheese and kisses to arrive, trip to the bottle-o for a light refreshment, then dinner, and a relaxing Friday evening with the radio (Weeknights with Alice) and/or some Zep shows. I need to check out Orlando!

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    It is baffling to understand the concept of the entire world scientific community somehow uniting under an agenda, disregarding science - which is the basis of their life long career and pursuit, and foisting a "conspiracy" onto the world. And to what end? All those individual scientists, all those scientific institutions, universities, professors, and professionals. All that scientifically peer reviewed data and modelling and all of them trying to dig holes in each others theories (scientific scepticism). I will never understand it if I live to a thousand. It's laughable except it's so tragic this is now our reality.
  9. Now if someone can kindly PM me a link to the flacs, I'd be eternally grateful. Tomorrow is Friday after all!
  10. Holy crap that sounds good. It just never gets old hearing that crowd go nuts at the start.

    Random Thoughts v.3

    Jesus, who are they targeting with those ads? It's actually embarrassing to watch. more cheese than an 80's sitcom. I take it these ads are only on at 3am?

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Ain't gonna happen. No tour. No gigs. No new stuff. *possible exception Jimmy does actually start playing again (as solo artist). The best we can hope for is Jimmy release live stuff covering different era's - likely only be an expanded DVD release (FULL: EC, Knebworth, RAH - which is fine by me if that is what is in the pipeline - not perfect, but I'll take it and be happy). Maybe HTEWW, maybe Bath or something similar that was multi-tracked and decent enough. BUT - if there are multi's on a shelf - there must be a reason they have not been discussed, mentioned, or released up until now. Probably they are sub-par and not something the guys are happy with. There is also zero talk of cleaning up SB's, or looking into fantastic gigs that are not really nice multi's - so the live vaults may be just as desolate as the studio vaults at this point. The dark horse possibility being Jimmy's previously stated desire to release collection of live stuff expanding the entirety of Zep's reign. So from '68/'69 to '80 inclusive. *IF Jimmy accepts SB recordings will need to be used - so a really, really dark horse. All speculation of course, and nothing original here, but anyone holding out hope for new material and/or a tour - that ship has long sailed friends. I still hold onto hope there is indeed live stuff coming. and hopefully soon. I ain't gettin' any younger....

    The pub

    Good luck with the ciggy's mate. If you get past the crunch point, it turns into something you can't even contemplate going back to. The smell alone makes you think how the F did I ever do that?!?! That's the good news, so keep going!
