    Music. Specifically, classic rock/pop from the '50s-'80s, as well as some modern stuff; jazz; R&B; blues...etc.<br />

    Does anybody know what day in 1968 that Pagey, Percy, Jonesy and Bonzo first performed in a room together, playing 'Train Kept A-Rollin''? Some time in late August/early September. I would consider that day as the exact moment Led Zeppelin was born.
  2. 1977 North American Tour - 40th Anniversary

    Listen to This Eddie 6/21/77 at the LA Forum is my favorite of the NA '77 tour. Bonzo at his best. What a fantastic show and the boot's sound quality is great too. Seems like every time Zeppelin played the Forum they put in a great performance, a few of them legendary.
  3. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    That's what I'm listening to right now! What a show! Bonzo is on fire! 40 years ago yesterday.
  4. Your first Led Zeppelin album

    1991 or 1992. I was 12 years old. The album (more specifically 'Stairway') made me a fan. Then Houses of the Holy, then everything else.
  5. Favorite Song off of Physical Graffiti

    'Kashmir', 'Trampled Under Foot', 'Ten Years Gone', 'Houses of the Holy', 'Night Flight' and 'Black County Woman' are my favorites. I think 'Trampled Under Foot' is my favorite, but it's a close one between those first three.
  6. Led Zeppelin's most beautiful song?

    'The Rain Song'. My second favorite Zeppelin song. Here is a particularly beautiful live performance of it.

  8. Favorite/Best version of Since I've Been Loving You

    I agree about the Berkeley 9/14/71 version. Contains perhaps my favorite Jimmy solo for SIBLY.
  9. Easiest Zep album to get into?

    The fourth album. Most of the tracks are already pretty well known to your average classic rock radio listening...you know, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, Stairway, Misty, California, Levee, even Evermore. In fact on my local classic rock station I'm sure I've heard all 8 tracks from the fourth album played at one point or another.
  10. haha Gandolf the Guitar Wizard, Classic Haha

    love it man

  11. if Jimmy renames the band, what would be a good name?

    Well, if Jimmy PERSONALLY asked for MY attendance then hell yeah, I'd be there. But Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham without Robert Plant, with tickets starting at something like $100 apeice....Nope. Won't go. Same reason I don't wanna see Queen with Paul Rodgers, 'course they have an excuse, Queen's lead singer is dead. Still, I'd pass.
  12. In Through The Out Door

    I've loved this album since I first heard it many years ago. Most of the people I've talked to before either hated it or never even heard of it. Shame. Now I just need to find someone who loves 'Hot Dog' as much as I do. I'd say 'South Bend Saurez' is the weakest track here, but it's still great. I've never met a Zeppelin song I didn't like one way or the other.
  13. The Best Zeppelin Cover

    Damn, totally forgot about that one! I'm changing mine, then. Definitely Big Head Todd & The Monsters' 'Tangerine'. I've always adored that song, so automatic points to any band that covers that song, but extra points to this band for doing such an excellent version.
  14. if Jimmy renames the band, what would be a good name?

    The I Wouldn't Pay Five Dollars To Seem Them Live Trio. Sorry, but for me, no Robert = no way.
  15. The Best Zeppelin Cover

    Honestly the only Zeppelin cover I've heard that I remember liking was Hootie & The Blowfish's version of 'Hey Hey What Can I Do', believe it or not. But that was in 1994. I'm no so sure anymore.
