    Best Line In Rock & Roll

    It's deep and beautiful, open to all kinds of interpretation. I've always marvelled at this after first looking it up. Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace Await their place within the ring of calm Still stand to turn in seconds of release Await the call they know may never come In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon To jeopardize the course, upset the run And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun As love in the halls of plenty overrun Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast Unending dances shadowed on the day Within their walls, their daunting formless keep Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed But no one seemed to question in anyway Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land To seek the unsuspecting and the weak And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand Toward the foe that threatened from the deep Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand Adrift upon a sea of futile speech? And to fall to fate and make the 'status plan' But no one there had heaven within their reach Singing uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh Oh Where was your word, where did you go? Where was your helping, where was your bow? Bow Bow Dull is the armour, cold is the day Hard was the journey, dark was the way, way I heard the word, I couldn't stay, oh I couldn't stand it another day, another day Another day, another day Touched by the timely coming Roused from the keeper's sleep Release the grip, throw down the key Held now within the knowing Rest now within the peace Take of the fruit, but guard the seed They had to stay Held now within the knowing Rest now within the peace Take off the fruit, but guard the seed Take off the fruit, but guard the seed

    Top Ten Best and Worst Led Zeppelin Songs

    The second list would be better defined as "Top 10 Least best Zeppelin Songs" You have taken on an impossible challenge I'd say.....
  4. And that applies to each of the 4. No question. Could do it, but just not Zep.

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    The re-release project was ok. Not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. The lack of live releases is starting to grate though. The "I'll be seen playing..." thing is a bit sad, but I don't really care either way. Come on man, live releases already. None of us is getting any younger you know.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    Fuck it was hot today..... Out on the back patio right now, its still very warm and not enough breeze. At least the mozzies seem to have taken the night off again.

    Its easier than that. Just type 30 Celcius into google. It gives you an instant conversion.

    Feb 14, 1975 Nassau - TDOLZ

    The Aud or SB? The audience does mask some things, this show is no different. The Audience gives a much better concert feel at the price of muddyness. The Soundboard is clear as but also dry as. Even though the soundboard lays bare every note and flub, I much prefer that.

    What Made You Happy today?

    Yep, that one. White hot is spot on.

    australian fans

    I was there! Won tickets through Rebel FM. Was seated near the back, but it was still great. Spoiler alert Xolo for set details (in case you want to go in fresh)..... The guitar tone is spot on authentic. The lighting at the venue I thought was really great too. The singer mimicking Plant gets a bit cheesy - even though the guitarist mimics Page, it's not as cheesy. I thoroughly enjoyed that show and would go again. Dare I say it, was better than JBLZE imho.

    What Made You Happy today?

    Wow. My magnificent missus just told me she won two tickets to see No Quarter - Led Zep tribute show down at Twin Towns this weekend. Looked for Accom and got a beautiful old motel (Old aussie pub facade) for under a hundred bucks for the night too. TOO GOOD.

    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.
  20. 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.
  24. Now if someone can kindly PM me a link to the flacs, I'd be eternally grateful. Tomorrow is Friday after all!
  25. Holy crap that sounds good. It just never gets old hearing that crowd go nuts at the start.
