  1. Robert Plant rearranging zeppelin classics

    I can count on one hand how many solo Robert Plant songs I would listen to again. 1, Slow Dancer 3. Calling to you 2. In the mood 4. Big log. Led Zeppelin will always in my view be Roberts best.
  2. Best Kashmir live version

    I know I am almost 4 years late to comment on this subject. Though what the heck. Led Zeppelin Kashmir with John Bonham is in my opinion much better than the 02 concert. Just do to the thunder that John brings that Jason doesn't. Some of the Tour over Europe versions are amazing as well.
  3. Live better than Studio

    Question about No Quarter. Why did they cut the middle section of the song in the remastered version of Song Remains the Same. I know it's in some other comments here. Just bought it in Hong Kong. Was sad....very sad.
  4. Seattle

    Yes. Not the safes place to go. Check out Bellevue, Kirkland. Some nice places to eat and some decent pubs.
  5. Seattle

    Go to Marymoor Park in Redmond. Check out Ballard, Stay far away from south Seattle. Go Boating on Lake Washington.
  6. Live better than Studio

    I think the song "what is What should never be" Live is amazing, The power that comes through on that song is incredible. When the levee breaks live was a complete joke. Never should have been done. Studio version is untouchable. No Quarter live in 1977 is a joke, to long and boring. Studio is still better. Black dog live. Power all out thunder. Studio is nice, but the Live versions kick some butt.
  7. What next? AGAIN

    I do not see Zeppelin ever playing live again. For many reasons. From what I've read in this form. Jimmy is done playing music. Plant is still playing but will not jam with the others. It is over guys.
  8. I think Robert has been trying for years to distance himself from the Rock God status. When we think of Zeppelin Robert Plant isn't the first person to come to mind. Bonham, Jones do. With this current band Plant talks about how his sounds brings out different landscapes. Well it sounds all to familiar to his other recent solo works. Stairway to Heaven is one of Zeppelins best "musically" written tracks. Plant may not like playing the song do to the outdated lyrics on it. I personally think "when the Levee Breaks" is Zeppelin at it's all time best.
  9. Jimmy Page will speak at the Oxford Union - 23 October at 8pm

    No questions on future solo works? Or a mini tour? Come on Oxford!
  10. A few years ago I went and saw Plants Band of Joy concert in Seattle. This would have been the 4th time I seen Plant. Either with Page or without. I remember the show being one prosaic concerts I've attended in a long time. I was horrified by the country, blue grass, Americana. Call it what you like. The energy was lacking from the band, and Plant stood their under the spot light looking tired. I felt at that moment that Plant lost the magic. Then came Black Dog, and I was so disappointed how this rendition was done. I boo'ed my idol. Then I walked out. I've been a plant fan since the age of 12. I Knew of the song (big log) before I new of any Zeppelin music. I do admire his courage to try new things, but this style of music is not working for me. I like spacey music, Peter Gabriel comes to mind. Though when Plant does this to Zeppelin classics, it's a shame. He knows that 90% of the fans at his shows are there for Zeppelin. I hope he stops singing it all together.
  11. I use to buy Zeppelin boots. I was too young to see Zeppelin live. When they broke up in 1980 I was 9 years old. My first purchase was (destroyer 1977) I was not impressed with the sound quality. Plus the performance was not up to Zeppelin standers. Next I bought Zeppelin 1980 Berlin concert. I was disappointed in the sound quality again. So for a long time feeling like I been suckered I stop buying Zeppelin Boots. Then I joined this web sight, and had to satisfy my craving for some raw zeppelin music. I bought Listen to this Eddie in Hong Kong. It kicked my ass. I was Amazed from the start. Bonham drumming on the Song remains the Same. I did not think that was humanly possible to drum like that. My Chinese neighbors hate me. Though I do not mind. Zeppelin to me is by far the best band that ever walked the earth. Thank you guys for all the information on good live Zeppelin to buy.
  12. This is an okay album. Much better than the previous works. I give it a C+ worth a listen then shelve it.
  13. How did led Zeppelin change music?

    How did Led Zeppelin change the music scene of the 1970s? Their music wasn't the same on every album, they didn't get stuck with one sound like Black Sabbath did. Furthermore they where a tight unit without the ego like John and Paul. I grew up with the Beatles and love Abby Road and The White album. Though their are some songs I have to skip on both of those albums that just don't fit. Led Zeppelin maybe had two or three songs that I would call a "filler" and that is pretty good considering that they only had 8 official albums. finally, the music of Led Zeppelin is as "dated" as the Beatles. anyways I thank the one above for both bands.
  14. It seems every year we hear news that Jimmy is going to release some music and get back on the road and tour. Nothing. I am beginning to think he is done, playing and just concentrating on Zeppelin reissues.....enough already. I've been a Zeppelin fan since my teens and now I am 45, I missed the Zeppelin touring days, but would love to see a Jimmy Page concert.
  15. Robert Plant Episode of ‘Austin City Limits’ to Premiere This Weekend

    Robert will sing his country zeppelin versions and put half the audience to sleep.
