  1. With all the bonus track mania going on with the Zep reissues, how couldn't Page put the full live NQ with the full solo from 1976 version on this new TSTRS release, at least as a bonus track? IT'S AMONG HIS BEST LIVE SOLO'S EVER. Is Page that isolated and out of touch that no one has told him how much the fans want this? We've been waiting decades now for it. This is the last TSRTS release, so I guess there's no hope for it. I'll take the full NQ remastered with the full solo over 99% of all the Zep reissue "outtakes", which I love. Page still seems sharp, not sure why he refuses to put his best solo out in a remastered form. There is no excuse.

    Robert meets up with Jimmy & JPJ recently

    Cool to to see the 3 of them together, but I have to say it, look at that obvious hairpiece Plant is wearing, I never thought I'd see the day Plant would wear a hairpiece, and a really bad one at that. All that money and that's the best one he could get?

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    With all the songs on this release, I can't believe Page wouldn't throw on the full "No Quarter"with the full original lead, even as an extra track. It's arguably his best live solo, which is saying alot, as the whole TSRTS Page is on fire, he has to know this at this point. He should've put both the full original 1976 release remastered (not remixed), and also the 2007 remixed version on this set, both in 24/96. No reason not to. Plus, on the 2007 remix, although the sound is good overall, Kevin Shirley ruined the tympani hits and gong smash right before the solo section on "No Quarter" when he drowned it out with that overdone cheesy phaser effect...I'm surprised Page signed off on that as he's a Bonzo purist...this took all the power out of what may have been Bonzo's most crushing fill! Listen to that same tympani fill with gong smash on the 1976 original TSRTS NQ non-remastered version, PURE POWER! Shirley also did the same to Bonzo's toms during Moby Dick triplets crescendo on the 2007 version.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    Translation of what Maloify is saying in laymen terms: "Can we please have just .000001% of anything having to do with the incomparable masterpiece Stairway to Heaven, even though it sounds nothing like the hoky, cringeworthy elevator music called Taurus? I swear you'll never hear from us again"...

    Planet Rock interview: 50th celeb Page

    I'm personally hoping for a full remastered Knebworth 8/4/79 with a full video blu-ray release (like the few Knebworth tracks on Led Zeppelin DVD), but somehow I doubt it, or maybe even either of the 2 1979 Knebworth warm-up gigs from Copenhagen 79. I've had enough of the early stuff already. I'd love a 24/96 remastered transfer of the original TSTRS release from 1976 (with the full No Quarter solo, one of his best ever), not the 2003 Kevin Shirley version, which was cool too, but there's something extra great about the original TSRTS 1976 soundtrack exactly as it was, especially WLL. But more than anything, I want new Page solo material, you know he's got tons of stuff. He should be putting up newer unreleased tracks on his website, demo's he's working on, etc, instead of the same old "on this day I played with Led Zeppelin at...", which was cool at first but it's all repeats now.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Williams seems like such a dick, not to mention his music is beyond painful.
  7. Is a CD also being released? I wish they at least offered a hi-definition download for those of us who don't have functioning turntables anymore.
  8. They did the right thing. It only helped their long term legacy and mystery more.
  9. Plant must have been REALLY rich already, so as to not even care about selling his Zeppelin rights. Only someone super filthy rich would do something like that, especially with a band as lucrative and legendary as LZ.
  10. He's improvising, like a real master. He has been sloppy, like on certain shows in 1977 and 1980, but then, a second later, when he plays a really complex, difficult piece like The Rain Song, he's clean as a whistle while doing really heavy duty, intricate chord changes, . Page is a mystery!

    Was Jimmy's peak in 1973?

    Page's guitar playing on TSRTS concert from 1973, on tracks Dazed, WLL, and No Quarter, as well as the song TSRTS are his best ever. Like the OP said, his fingers just danced on the strings with tasty, killer licks that are coming through rapid fire and are just on another level from any other guitar player, I don't care who they are, they don't cut as deep to your soul the way Page did in 1973. Plus, for you long time guitar players and tone maniacs like myself out there, his tone was PERFECT AND PURE. Just enough edge, plenty of clarity and definition, and ATTITUDE. THE best rock and roll tone ever in my book. TSRTS is unreal, don't care about the edits here and there, I have the bootleg, it's 99% the way you hear it, he played it. LIVE. He was also really great on 1988 Outrider tour and 1998 Page-Plant. We saw Page-Plant at MSG in NY in July 1998 from the 10th row, and it blew the whole arena into smithereens. After the show, on the way out of the Garden as people were exiting, huge crowds started chanting and screaming again, it was INSANE. I've been to hundreds, maybe a thousand shows in my life (yup, I'm over 50) and I've NEVER seen an aftermath of people still so psyched as to what they just saw. Huge crowds WERE STILL SCREAMING ON THE STREETS IN MANHATTAN AFTER THE SHOW! I only wish JPJ was there. Page and Plant truly earned it, and lived up to every bit of their legend, plus it was only a 4-piece, not some corny ensemble of backing musicians like the Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, etc. all used in recent times to fill out their sound. 1998 was the time they should have done the Zep reunion and filmed it, they still totally had it.

    Ineteresting take on JPJ

    It shows that you can't go back in time, no matter how bad we wish they could or would. WIC was Plant at his worst vocally, the whining singing he does on WIC is almost painful. Page is ok on it, but not his usual magical self, he was holding back for some reason. The mix was weird too. When asked about WIC, JPJ said, as a Page fan himself, he wanted to hear more Page on it, not enough Page he said. "WIC", "Most High", and "House of Love" were ok, but the chemistry, power, and atmosphere, or magic, was lacking. Plant even said that Page was coming up with great stuff, while he himself had nothing, although his lyrics were excellent, his singing wasn't. The album still went gold and they won a grammy for Most High, and the tours were killer, Plant was WAY better on the tours. JPJ would've balanced out the album more, but then again Plant did not want JPJ in on it. Page wanted to bring JPJ into the Page-Plant project, but Plant did not, as Plant said it would then be viewed as a Zep "reunion". Personally, WIC was the weakest Page or Plant album after Zep. I felt Deathwish 2, The Firm, Mean Business, Outrider, and Coverdale-Page were better. The vocals on "Yallah" or "Wah Wah" on NQ made my cringe to be quite honest. Page's guitar were pure brilliance on Coverdale-Page, though I wish Plant would've sung on that instead of Coverdale, but then again the songs would not have been the same. Plant sang "Shake My Tree" really cool on the 1995 P-P tour though.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    This is incorrect. Before deliberation, the jury asked to hear both songs, the known recorded final versions as they appear on the records, and immediately voted unanimously there was no infringement. The appeal will go nowhere.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    They need to give it up, and get some real music of their own instead of parasitically clinging to Zeppelin's talent for $. Skidmark needs to get a life. This stupid song Taurus isn't even worth a listen much less a lawsuit, Spirit needs to stop flattering themselves and delusionally thinking they are worth comparing to Led Zeppelin even for a second. Taurus is so unmemorable, these maggots must have alot of cash to keep suing Zep. They will keep losing.
