  1. Looks like we are expecting some live zeppelin recordings as releases for the 50th and not expecting any further live performances by the band. 2007 seemed more like a return than a fair well and with the remasters building on the tension The question of “what next” seems likely to continue to be asked. But where is the bookend? What would be the right way to draw it to a close? Not that I want it to ever end but you know... I allways liked what Jeff Lynn did with the remaining Beatles on “free as a bird” and “real love” . Maybe some drums tracks remain . Perhaps somethings could be finished off. Maybe something new, an EP of sorts.
  2. What next? AGAIN

    When RP stops performing the songs albeit in interesting ways, then that’s when it really has come to an end, for me any way. I’m guessing he won’t stop doing that until he actually stops performing altogether
  3. What next? AGAIN

    Some might say the free as bird thing was hokey. Which it probably was! I guess it depends how it could be framed. Something new or half new would be the only thing not done but it’s probably the least likely so... I think you’re right. The next release could very well be the last activity we see we've had the concert! the studio vaults are clear? Last few live tapes are next? and that’s it.......50 years is quite a nice note to end on. I’m sure the led Zeppelin forum will rumble on for a very long time beyond though!
  4. What next? AGAIN

    Yes I know but what I’m trying to say and not very well is that despite 2007 obviously being the last show it did start a whole load of people asking for more and lots still are even a decade later. Then came the studio stuff and now what looks like more live stuff. So rather than finishing it off it seems to me 2007 unleashed it again given all the constant speculation. i think boleskinner Sums it up well. Sad event or slow tail off. I suggested a “free as bird” type effort like the Beatles in the hope of getting totally trolled to death on this forum.
  5. Companion discs are rubbish

    I seem to be missing the graphs and pie charts?
  6. Well put, I can't fault any on that. Hendrix is allways the one topic that I find most interesting in these kind of debates. With Page I almost find I'm willing him on during his playing like a high wire act. It adds to the tension. with the vaitranis I'm sort of listening to how easy they make it sound . Compare EVH and the kinks version of you really got me cos that just about sums it up for me
  7. Companion discs are rubbish

    if every track on each companion audio disk was a new "previously unreleased" song, then would it be companion audio to the original, or would it be a bonus disk or separate album ?
  8. Ahmet's wife, if your reading this, ask him again would you.
  9. This certainly would be the event that most would dream of happening. even if it was total crap I'd still be happy that we would finally have the answer and the actual full stop to all this and we could all move on band members included.
  10. Sadly there will be a time where in the absence of anything new it will be 100% speculation.
  11. In Through the Out Door reissue: WOW!

    ITTOD is the only super deluxe I ain't got (yet) I've got the BBC one but not unwrapped it yet (Christmas) . I suppose I should complete the set but I'm struggling with this album at the moment. I saw a clip of page and plant doing "in the evening" with part of carouselambra in the middle it was bloody awesome. Would have loved this at the o2 instead of the "rock and roll"
  12. Yeah I'm hoping. I'd like some of the later songs live on official release.
  13. I suspect there might be a tiny amount of speculation mixed in too.
  14. Imho I reckon Bob would have been up for it if page had provided him with some genuinely original material, something new. Something worthy. We know plant doesn't mind singing the zeppelin songs most of his act is doing just that. I think the ball has been in pages court to produce the goods . It's clear A never ending tour repeating the classics is out of the question. Plant has said that it has to be fresh a new for him to engage. In some ways I think it's pages only chance to get back out there and do it justice. But the bar is incredibly high now. Having said that I though embryo 1 and 2 had some bloody potential.
  15. Companion discs are rubbish

    I think the concept is quite simple. remastered Album plus the same album but viewed from a different perspective. the artwork says it all. Original album cover and then a sort of inversion of the colours for the second disc but in effect both discs share the same concept at their core. You couldn't have one without the other. Perhaps we shouldn't consider the tracks individually so much as being a complete album. imho I think what page has done here has added to and given further colour and illustration to the core of each of these albums in a very considered and artistic way. I think what's been done is completely unique . It also shows that he still has the eye and ear for it. Who knows he may have even made something this clever out of the very little remaining. Or there may be more concepts to come....
  16. Your first Led Zeppelin album

    Having listened to my dads 1 to 4 zepp vinyls, a couple of years later I managed to muster enough cash to get the "remasters" crop circle compilation when it came out. I then realised there were more albums than just the first 4 so I started to collect em all starting with II
  17. Yeah! I was delighted with houses companion disc too. It did take a couple of listens but I did start to notice more and more in it . Found OTHAFA particularly interesting
  18. What if things were backwards?

    Having said that . Had these albums somehow not happened but we still had the world we have today I could see everyone of them being very well received indeed. Say a new band did zep 1 now. still as incredible now as it was then
  19. What if things were backwards?

    could the albums have manifested in reverse order without everything else in the universe devolving rather than evolving also? Surely these albums are the sum of all the interact able light cones at that place and time. Or something or other, IMHO of course!
  20. Favorite Zeppelin Album?

    Led Zeppelin iii has always been my special friend. The contrasts on it are amazing, the hammer of immigrant song , heavy blues build up atmosphere on SIBlY , woody stomp on BYR . I could go on. But I think it's got just nearly it all!
  21. Three Crows

    Check out this great sounding track! should be something of interest to zepp fans https://soundcloud.com/james-platts-1/three-crows
  22. Three Crows

    Yeah! Something definitely there
  23. Jimmy Page welcomes home a cultural icon (GQ)

    Well I'll keep my fingers crossed.
  24. Jimmy Page welcomes home a cultural icon (GQ)

    To what do you refer? Do you have some info?
  25. How did you get into Led Zeppelin

    Haha No. Only used "The" in front of ASDA cos I thought it was the only one.
