  1. Would Only One Knebworth Show Have Been Better?

    Believe it or not, I did this with Black Dog, and it kept kicks ass like you wouldn't believe. I may post !
  2. Would Only One Knebworth Show Have Been Better?

    The 11th is a debacle and one of Jimmys worst ever performances. It's sad because it should've been the better show, more relaxed, etc, but Jimmy , who has said himself he "wasn't well" n the 11th, just gagged it. I listened to Copenhagen 7.24 yesterday, can't believe it's the same guitarist sometimes. Addiction is a bitch
  3. Well, the song sonically maybe sounds interesting sorta, but there's no substance to it. Like most of it is just one chord and lots of "ahhhhs" It's ok nothing special his voice sounds good
  4. Robert Plant's Wedding Gift to Phil Collins Up for Auction

    Robert and Shirley. Naughty Robert
  5. Jojesy also,wrote the epic "ascending" riff at end of Kashmir. It's complicated but it's part of the arrangement, not the song itself. But yeah, Jonesy did all that
  6. Immigrant Song Ending Chord

    Well gee whiz I've been playing it wrong all these years I always played a Cdim9 chord sounded good to me !
  7. Germaine Greer's LZ Experience

    Man, Zep was obsessed with Trannies lol
  8. It's as if you haven't paid attention to anything Robert has said for past 1000 years. Remarkable level of disconnect.
  9. Did Presence have a bad mix?

    The only thing Presence lacks is low end. Its a fantastic sounding record with Bonzos drums captured super crisply and shimmering guitars everywhere
  10. 1980 Jimmy Page tone

    It's not just Frankfurt. Some shows, like Munich and Mannheim, his tone is clearer and snappier, but then like you say it gets fuzzed out more in Frankfurt, and Rotterdam for example. I think Jimmy was experimenting with settings, this was a warm up tour after all. So some nights, he probably turned up the gain or Presence, fiddled with tone knobs etc. every venue sounds different, too. You gotta tweak things to work for you.
  11. This show literally drove them to Bron Y Aur. Fed up with the insanity of touring the South, death threats, etc, they headed for the woods to chill out.
  12. Bill Curbishley: Fired by Page, later let Plant go...

    I don't fault Jimmy either the man spent way more time than the others working on their music he earned those extra bucks
  13. Great pics wow thx for sharing !
  14. Any time now.....

    By my count, Robert has released 4 albums since 2000, this will make 5 Jimmy has been promising a new album since 2000, we've gotten zero so far seems to me Robert has a bit more credibility eh?
