    The O2 In Retrospect...

    IN RETROSPECT: BOTTOM LINE We were LUCKY the 3 were still around AND felt healthy enough to DO IT. It NEEDED to happen to wrap things up for them on a positive note. It happend & it happend even better than my imagination could come up with. Plants voice throttled up almost beyond belief. Of course we would LOVE more shows &/or material & none of them ever said they would refuse ever getting together in the future. HOWEVER: If i could ask from them ONE more REALISTIC thing: It would be to do a SPECIAL TREET for the hardcore fans: small live show(s) of ONLY DEEPER CUTS ! No Stairway ,no Black dog etc... instead do: out on the tiles, custard pie,dyer maker, the rover,in the light etc... its even not impossible that some additional new creativity could generate! Amen!

    Still the greatest rock band!

    Ok real quick,& skip past your top 10 list (FAIL). MORE PERSONAL ACCOUNTS OF HOW ONE BECAME BIG FANS AS THE ALBUMS HIT THE AIRWAVES, PLEEEEASE! i missed all of that but i can tell u "post zep" , their was no denying ZEP were the KINGS once one realized "wow! most of the best songs ive ever heard over several yrs ,ARE BY ONE BAND!" from heavy "the imigrant song" to songs like "fool in the rain" = ALL one band ? That & just banter from other HS kids in the hallways between classes as i slowly realized i was on to something HUGE! I was just as proud of myself (somehow) for getting #1 rite! I wore that BIG ZEP PATCH proudly on the back of my jean jacket! Sorry.... lost myself in my HS yrs 81'-85' & forgot where i was going with this ..haha ha ZEP will forever be 1 of the BEST loves of my life!!!!

    Jimmy with the Rolling Stones

    What? "alt" version of heart of stone? Ive been in the understanding for yrs now = thats jimmy doing the solo on the common ALBUM! is this NOT true? It sure sounds EXACTLY like what he would come up with. Also if its true that Page was on the stones payroll for a cple of yrs (wich yrs? Idk) ,Then im thinking he is probably on Much more than any1 knows. Are their a host of stone songs that generally are "unofficialy" suspect to have jimmy playing on their recordings? What songs are they? Steve dont u also here jimmys playing on a few other stones tunes?

    Greta Van Fleet

    Im SURPRIZED that Robert PLANT said the few positive things he did about GVF, i think he just likes the kids VOICE! once he hears the chopped up zep songs etc in their songs up to this date he wont be quite so impressed! I stand by the above opinion, They ARE NO LED ZEPPELIN, & the future of ROCK is not secure because of them. I suppose its ok to go see them or turn it up on the radio however. NOW IF or "once" they get real & aknowledge Zep is their BIGGEST influence & put some BETTER original tunes together theyll then likely ONLY be a good band that many like. BUT to hear our members really talking like they got what it takes to be the next Zep is disapointing AND are making fools of themselves on our Zep site! And when they cant elevate their music or even 1 song to even CLOSE to Zep Quality & heights then u will understand how SUPERIOR of a band LED ZEPPELIN REALY is. (To "whoevers" # TWO! )
  8. Funny that i just noticed ive reponded to this topic & or thread several X's over the yrs lmao ! Please excuse me! Evedently i got nothing NEW to add
  9. THIS IS THE ANSWER U ARE LOOKING FOR: Plant DOES slip in lil Morrison lines QUITE OFTEN. Even during his solo concerts . Example: In Columbus Ohio during the Band of Joy tour , about 1/2 into the show he slipped in the phrase "is everybody in" (= direct Morrison quote). He sneaks in different Morrison phrases it seems as a treat for those of us are aware he has been doing this for a long time. So much in fact that we were anticipating it watching the 02 arena show in 2007 but sadly they chopped it out of the Celebration Day CD, however its on a Utube bootleg video & it was WONDERFUL ! On a side note: look through older pics of plant dated shortly after Jims passing ( i believe ) & youll notice Plant is wearing the exact SAME red & white neckalace as Morrison wears in that iconic album sleeve picture of him shirtless with his arms stretched out towards the camera. Not so much as in a way he looked up to Jim like an idol as fans do musicians etc. Sometimes do but as a I heard Plant mention things over the years that give me the absolute impression that he looked to Jim as another member that was a part of the same musical movement at a special "space time" in history ! I hope this helped you visualize the real vibe of where plant is coming from, as u become aware of these special lil "inside" type gifts or nods he gives to the ones who are catching on to him. Not sure if he uses anyone elses terms or quotes but he DOES utilize Jim Morrison verbage! ! (Pls excuse my hasty spelling) ALSO: to who ever that was that said Plant said some negetive things re' Morrison 》U may have miss interpeted & please elaborate !

    Greta Van Fleet

    BECAUSE they are LIARS! I seen that interview & u could see right through him. SHAME ON THE KID! Yea I got syked hearing the first song then as SOON as you hear their next song (Any) u catch on that these are all songs with mixed up Zep arangements ,intros ,lyrics ! More than using the same themes to a Zep song 》 u can literally call off different Zep songs by name that they are copying off of! Yes he sounds like the young "on the road singing live Robert" but singing to jumbled up Actual Zep songs music ! By the third song you are really ANNOYED that they think by calling off Zeps influences (Led Belly ,Howlin Wolf etc...) makes them legit! SINCE THEY MADE A POINT TO NOT mention the Almighty Zep as an influence 》 They lost their chance of any legit street cred when it comes down to it! Kingdom Come yrs ago blew it by pretending they never heard of Jimmy Page! "Get it On's" (btw a wonderful,powerful & fun song WHAT A RIFF! Vocals,lyrics ,drums all of it! Was just such an experience for the Zep thirsty teenager I was in the 80's. I would just close my eyes & pretend it WAS "our boys" who were "pushing hard to play their best" it made me Love Zep even more somehow!) .....Riff Might actually been lifted right from Jimmys stolen jam tapes yrs ago! who knows. I even question Claptons "Layla" riff ! Thats a Jimmy Page riff if i ever heard one! as Jimmy was just working with Clapton daily for months ! Next thing u know Claptons with Duane Alman (r.i.p.) across the ocean & idk whos claiming credit for the riff ! Pagey could have just been messin around jamming as he came up with his pet name for Eric "slowhand" ! Isnt Pagey who 1st called Clapton that?? Anyway Pagey & Jonesy got no reason to be impressed enough to mention Gretta Van Fleese because its their own chopped up sound. As far as Percy goes....he could probly care les the kid sounds alot like ANOTHER clone of him.
