    The O2 In Retrospect...

    Personally I'd have to guess that if Steven Tyler tells you there are no hits and you feel confident or passionate in your material, then you're probably on to something really good. Especially if you're John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page. Steven Tyler has transferred his drug addictions to "hit single" addiction and essentially the addiction to constant attention . The last thing you should do as a songwriter is try to make hit singles. That's the complete opposite of what Led Zeppelin did (and many others). You're not going to manifest music that is creative, unique, genuine or soulful by pandering to the mainstream audience or worrying about what others want to hear.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    It would be great if it was some new music. I guess it could be editing or de-mixing of some old bootlegs as some suggested as well. Whatever comes of it will most likely be quite interesting.

    Greta Van Fleet

    Definitely. They had one of the biggest names in the pop music industry discover them.There truly is nothing organic about them for me whatsoever as well.
  4. You're welcome. Exactly, there are so many nuisances. They really fill in the song, it truly is an epic performance. It's one that the casual listener wouldn't pick up. Bonzo and Jones really make the song what it is.

    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    My most recent performance. It's an acoustic set of my material which is very much influenced by celtic, english and arabic folk; as well as players like Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, among others including Jimmy Page.
  6. Thanks a lot man. I'm really glad you enjoyed it! John Fahey is great.
  7. You do an unbelievable job on all of these tracks. You have a great ear and have everything down to the last detail. I think Bring it on Home is one of Bonham's most under appreciated drum tracks. It's one of my favorites though.
  8. Thank you. I'm happy to hear that you did!
  9. Thanks a lot, I appreciate you taking the time to watch!

    Post A Picture Of Yourself!

    HAha, You know it could be an old vest of Gilbert's. The thing is from the late 60's/early 70's haha. Thanks a lot though for the kind words. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed it!

    Post A Picture Of Yourself!

    Hey everyone, not a picture of myself but instead a video. Maybe some of you will like it? It's a video of a recent performance of mine. I think some of you who like the acoustic side of led zeppelin, along with artists such as Roy Harper, Bert Jansch and John Renbourn might like my material.
  12. I Played a show a week ago which was filmed and recorded live. I thought some of you would be into the material. It's a performance of some of my acoustic instrumental songs. I have many influences and tons of material, some is acoustic, some is electric, and some is a mix. These songs are more similar to artists such as John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, Roy Harper as well as Zeppelin's acoustic side. But It's not exactly like any of those, it's very much my own thing. It's not a perfect performance, a few minor mistakes but it was pretty solid overall. Let me know if any of you are into the material. I've posted the first song (which has an extended intro, sort of a medley of other material of mine) on here in the past.

    Tower House

    I love to see how Jimmy has kept the house so true to its creation. Most people would modernize with a bunch of sterile looking crap all over the place. I hate seeing people take amazing architectural marvels, and older houses with so much character and just remove all of the timelessness from it; basically making it a facade.

    Interview with Jimmy Page - GQ Magazine

    I thought that was one of the better interviews I've read. A couple of things I appreciate the most about the members of LZ is how much they value their privacy (don't have to feed their egos by putting their personal lives on display) and the fact that they don't constantly glorify their drug use or the amount of women they've slept with in order to maintain or build some phony badass, false persona; basically the media image of the "rock star" or person in a band. Like Steven Tyler for instance, he talks about it almost every single interview i've seen him in. It gets really old and people that do that seem to care more about their persona than their music, it's all about making sure you grab headlines. Plus does your family really want to hear about the random girls or women you sleep with or have slept with all the time? Probably not. I think Page just doesn't want to say something that people will take out of context or the wrong way, then it'll come up continuously in the media, in interviews and probably in some personal interactions. I think he could be a tiny bit looser at times, but I understand why he's not. What's the use of it really? The reason anyone even knows of him is music, thus it should be about the music for the most part.

    Greta Van Fleet

    I agree. I'm not saying it to knock them as no one else is truly anything like Led Zeppelin, but they are nowhere near the comprehensive style of Led Zeppelin. I truly hear more ACDC and other 70's bands than Led Zeppelin in their music. The feel, the styles and the approaches are all quite different from Led Zeppelin for the most part. Greta is pretty much a straight forward rock band with very little influence from any styles outside of the blues. I obviously don't think it's Greta. They didn't market themselves as the next LZ. I think it's more so the media and everyone else who hears a guy sound like Robert Plant in a song or two, sees them dressing like their from the 60's and then brands a band with headlines such as "Are ________ the next led zeppelin?" How many times has that happened? Wolfmother comes to mind after their first album. Good album, actually I love the album but still nothing like Led Zeppelin. I actually think that musically their first album was more like Zeppelin than anything I've heard from Greta outside of one of their covers of a zeppelin song. Although I think that technically speaking the guitarist for Greta is a better player than Andrew from Wolfmother. Didn't Robert Plant recently say something along the lines that he doesn't think most of their fans actually understand Led Zeppelin's music? I definitely agree with that when everyone talks about how much a band like GVF sounds just like Led Zeppelin.
