    Cause of plant/JPJ friction

    I am just speculating here but Robert was a midlands bloke with no formal musical training, Jones was a formally trained musician from London and very professional. Robert was Mr. Groupie & party while with Zep, Jones typically did not associate with the band after a gig but preferred his own circle of friends and stayed in rented houses or with friends while on the road (starting around the 73' tour I believe). I figure Robert believed Jones was being a snob when in fact Jones was the only one being smart. I believe it is as simple as that. Also, Robert is likely intimidated by Jones breath of knowledge regarding music and may have called Robert out a time or two when they were putting together songs in the studio. Or maybe Jones made a stupid comment in 1971 and Robert never forgave him. Anything is possible with people.

    RIP Jesus, you had a nice run until the Romans got ya. Buddha to, I hope Nirvana is all you hoped it would be. Special shout out to Pac & Biggie...too bad neither one is going back to Cali.

    The fact is no one was disrespecting the flag, it was a simple form of protest to point out police brutality in the black community. Mark my words, this is going to blow up in the NFL's face big time. Last time I checked we still live in the United States with a constitution which guarantees ones right's. I understand the NFL is a private organization but they also need to realize those players are their bread and butter. If they decide to collectively all stay in the locker room, or, even worse, refuse to play, the NFL is screwed. What would they do? Recruit a bunch of shitty 10th stringers to play? Yeah, good luck with that. On top of it we have a President who does not seem to understand the rule of law. He goes on national TV and says, "...well, maybe if you don't stand, you don't respect the flag and anthem, maybe you should be kicked out of the country." That right there is dictator level insanity and should not be tolerated from a sitting President. Just imagine what would have happened if any other President said those very same words on national TV. 25th Amendment anyone?
  5. This one and the version from the 23rd are the best versions of NQ IMO. Also, Page uses the Strat on both of these night's and does some very freaky stuff with the whammy bar (especially on the 23rd), but does not go overboard with it. That is one of my favorite aspects of Page's use of the whammy, he knows when to use it and how to use it but never over-uses it.
  6. Guess he had a broken hand as well

    Ha, you get it once a week (or I'm my case, once when Venus transits Uranus) 5 minutes is serious marathon shit right there!

    Once a week! Damn, your wife must be generous.
  11. I can't speak for others but I am of the opinion the 77' NY run was actually a tad bit better than the LA run the same year. What I am referring to is all the shows except for one were very consistently top notch from beginning to end. Sure, 6-21 had insane energy, 6-23 had the playful and fun spirit but five of the six night's at MSG were near perfect, kinda like 6-22 but for five night's. What say you all?

    Yes but one cannot, or should I say should not, get intimate with a dog. Therin lay the downside. That and I don't have to pick up my wife shit...I only have to take it

    Damn Steve, you ARE old! BTW, George V was no Henry VII who was no Edward I who was no Alfred the Great.

    I am sorry Zep, I thought you were kidding. I don't mean to pry but have you tried going to the authorities?

    Prince Harry sporting a beard is not quite as big a deal as it has been made out to be. Hid great-great-grandfather, George V was also bearded at his wedding as were several other British royals / monarchs on their wedding day. Regarding Harrys choice in a bride, if she makes him happy good for him, who knows what will happen. Princess Diana was very traditional as well until she found out what an ass Charles was and how cold he could be to her...if Diana's account is true that is. The sad situation as far as Diana / Charles was concerned is it appears Diana was kinda duped into the whole thing as she was not made aware of Charles relationship with Camilla (she found that out much later); and the fact that Charles was not exactly being desecrate with Camilla which made Diana the fool. Time will tell how this will play out but the fact is times change and traditions change. English monarchs no longer have their wives heads removed from their bodies when they cannot produce a male heir. British monarchs no longer charge into battle at the head of the vanguard. British monarchs no longer marry for political alliance. All of this is moot anyhow as the royals hold no true power, they may call the UK a constitutional monarchy but then again when was the last time the Queen was consulted on economic policy or foreign affairs?

    Just because you don't like the links provided, or the truth they show does not make it any less of the truth. I do not spew propaganda, I dismiss it and provide proof to the truth. It is a shame so many people are obtuse and close minded.

    While I agree that the parents should have the ultimate, final care regarding the healthcare of their child, the rest of your post is simply uninformed and ridiculous. Have you ever experienced a state run health system? Maybe it is not perfect but it is a far cry better than what we have in the US which is considered one of the most expensive, least efficient systems in the world. In fact, Infant mortality rates are skyrocketing in the US where in those countries with state run systems infant mortality is plummeting: http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/03/24/infographic-u-s-health-care-compared-to-the-rest-of-the-world-not-pretty-trump-care-paul-ryan-affordable-healthcare-act/ https://nordic.businessinsider.com/the-16-countries-with-the-worlds-best-healthcare-systems-2017-1/
  19. Yep, good call. As much as I love BYAS I love BCW even more plus it was the first, and last tour they played it live. They should have ditched BYAS and played a complete BCW. My dream would have been an acoustic set with GTC, BCW, BYA (gorgeous pastoral Page solo piece), and either Four Sticks or the alternate WTLB.

    Underrated/overrated shows

    Have you heard some of the boots from Rotterdam or Frankfurt? No sticky fingers there. The Rotterdam Heartbreaker is one of Page's best versions as just one example. Of course if you don't like it to each their own, I respect your opinion.
  21. Whoa there buddy, I was simply taking the piss as I do not like Plant's artificial pitch induced vocals especially on TRS, and the break which Plant just nails so powerfully is just way too laid back on the studio version. I respect your opinion but lighten up for crying out loud.
