    Well I notice he’s sneaked the sunset sound mix of rock and roll in! So can listen digitally my vinyl copy doesn’t seem like the greatest pressing

    Does 'Coda' Count?

    All the band members played on it. jimmy page sequenced it and produced it. there is an epic, a bluesy number, a hard hitter, acoustic track. Etc all the tracks were recorded during zeppelins creative periods it says led zeppelin on the cover the only doubt could be that they had already broken up when it was released. i don’t even count the idea that it was only done to fulfil a contract. I think it happened to fulfil the contract but that wasn’t entirely it’s purpose. its firmly an important part of the story of led zeppelin so it’s a zeppelin album for me. but does celebration day count as a zeppelin live album?
  6. Dude when you said “I didn’t know who Memphis Minnie was” I didn’t know Bukka, Lead Belly, Model T. Etc Zeppelin put me on to those , Clapton put me on to Johnson. The stones onto others . It’s like they were showing a glimpse of history and the entirety new direction at the same time. Which i think is pretty smart. if not for these bands and others the old blues guys would have likely been long forgotten. In fact in most of the interview they give they name drop these old blues artists.

    Does 'Coda' Count?

    I count it. It’s a led zeppelin album for me. I think of it like this. jp seems to have a lot of input into track lists for all the albums. Maybe more so on Coda. not all songs were recorded for this album. Other zeppelin albums had songs from different times and sessions / studios put together into an album. Take physical for instance its the similar way of working.
  8. if the alleged start material is on a different popularity level to the alleged end material then how can it be the same? Taurus does not equal Stairway. If it did then surely Taurus would have been just as successful. As for the blues.... We are standing on the shoulders of giants, genius does not occur in a vacuum. Einstein couldn’t have come up with relativity without Newton and No Newton without gallileo or however you spell his name.

    Led Zeppelin favourite to headline Glastonbury 2019

    I don’t doubt Eavis has approached all the those on the list. he has a problem he’s got the 50th Glastonbury and his retirement one to do in 2019/2020 but would prefer not to have the spice girls . His main targets for the top slot aren’t even bands anymore.

    Led Zeppelin favourite to headline Glastonbury 2019

    I don’t know much about the current situation with fleetwood Mac but I would have thought they would have had higher odds at topping Glastonbury than LZ. I mean England are 8/1 to win the World Cup . I would have thought that more likely than LZ headlining Glastonbury, at England least are still playing together as a group

    Led Zeppelin favourite to headline Glastonbury 2019

    I suppose in 2019 it will be 50 years since zeppelin did the 1969 bath festival which was the inspiration for Glastonbury. In fact wasn’t it the Zeppelin performance at Bath that Eavis saw , which was the trigger for him to start putting on festivals? Synchronicity.

    Led Zeppelin favourite to headline Glastonbury 2019

    I think there’s been speculation around Zeppelin doing Glastonbury for at least the last 5 events. It’s not a new rumour. It seams like it’s just been re-rumoured for the next one. I’d go as far as putting a £1 bet on . But wouldn’t buy a ticket .

    Potential Zep Reunion? Probably not.... but Maybe...

    Currently extremely unlikely but imho, the press pumping out stories like this make it even less likely! Separate performances!? It’s all very nice but surely they could forget all the political crap and wrap the evening up together? Perhaps by letting the cover bands handle some of the usual standards they could tackle a couple of deeper cuts or acoustic numbers? The possibilities are endless. honestly, it’s driving me nuts.
