  1. There are countless great musicians out there, no question. But only Zeppelin is Zeppelin. As for their decision to quit, it was there's alone. Like I said before, it's not right or wrong or good or bad. It was a personal decision. They may have made some brilliant music or it might have all been rubbish. We'll never know

    I think there are probably countless bootlegs that contain great and interesting performances, but would not make the cut for an official release due to their sound quality. So, assuming the band has the material, they wouldn't necessarily want it out there. Consider the Mike Millard tapes, like Listen To This Eddie! Its a great performance, as are many other bootleg recordings, but the sound quality just isn't at the level that you want for an official release.
  3. Is Jimmy Page done making music?

    Done completely? Forever? I doubt it. I think as long as Page is healthy he will eventually feel the call to make music in some way. Of course, a Zeppelin return in any meaningful way is a million to 1 shot. But Page may decide to record solo again or appear with others once in a while. He's in his 70s so anything arduous could be out. But he may still make some tunes and we'll all be happy for it.
  4. I am sure this is a tired subject for those who have been here a long time (top 5, top 10, etc etc) but I am really just now delving into Plant's solo stuff. I have Now and Zen, as well as Principal Of Moments. What are his best songs outside of his work with LZ?
  5. I agree about the precise combo of individuals creating a magic. But I do think that a band with a substitute for one who has left or died can play the songs that the original line up played and it can still be very enjoyable and worthwhile. I would LOVE To have seen The Who in the early 70s. I would still like to have seen The Who in the late 80s. I am kind of too young for either. Well, actually not too young for the late 80s. In any case, you get my drift
  6. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Was just enjoying TSRTM live album this morning
  7. Millard Tapes List

    I have listened to some of these shows. For an audience recording (that is, just a guy and a good quality microphone) they do sound decent. Its sad that they are no where close to a professional recording. But they are still fine documents of some great shows
  8. Hoarding Live Zep. .

    I think its human nature to 'hoard' things. Not everyone does this, but a great many do. Whether its food, supplies, or even non essential items, there is something that makes us feel good about hanging on to stuff that we made want or need one day, whether to keep for our own use or for bartering with others in the future. I like buying nice wine and spirits. When I discover something good, I always buy an extra one (or two) for the cellar or cabinet. But taunting other with what you possess, knowing they want or need it -- man, that's kinda sick
  9. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/the-40-greatest-led-zeppelin-songs-of-all-time-20121107/in-the-evening-1979-19691231 No Ten Years Gone on this list!? Personally, I rank the song really, really, really high. I can't imagine picking 20 Zeppelin songs that I think are better than it. Did they simply overlook it? I don't know. I have problems with almost all of their various lists, but I know the real point of them is to inspire debate, discussion, and get people to check stuff out. But here they just must have missed this exquisite gem. The whole songs is just achingly magnificent. Its wistful and yet rocking, agonizing, and with guitar work that just stuns. I love it.

    I think there will be some efforts to mark it. Question is, what sort of things?
  11. Wow. I did not know this. 4 days later?! The Who were always odd. Lots of stories of them physically fighting each other. They were so serious. Different animals altogether. But that is news to me that they played 4 days after Entwistle's death. Was it kind of in tribute to him?
  12. Anyone know what its worth? My friend has a copy - perfect. Its from the UK and its practically mint. He was offered a few hundred dollars but says its worth thousands
  13. It is hard to imagine them as an 80s era band. And for the record I am not unhappy with them calling it quits when they did. What would they have sounded like? I don't really know. I am thinking about the Stones in the 80s with Dirty Work, but also a White Snake sort of sound. I'm also thinking of the sounds of the Page and Plant solo albums. They would not likely have ever equaled their greatness of the 1970s. But they would have been Led Zeppelin so a few gems might have come forth. But again, they made the choice best for them and it was there decision alone.
  14. I know that he was pretty much always awesome and that his approach, style, and heaviness a constant feature of Led Zeppelin's music. But if someone who didn't know Zeppelin very well asked you for 2 or 3 songs that show Bonham's greatness the most, what would you suggest?
