  1. So I recently bought an original TSRTS live album (from the motion picture) and was shocked. To start, Rock and Roll sounds very different, the mix is way weirder. Other than some odds and ends here and there, the one song that’s WAY different is Dazed and Confused. I’m aware cuts had to be made from the LP (cause the song is 30 minuets long) but you can here mistakes and just way different phrases played here and there. My question posed is which version is right? The 30 minuet masterpiece I’ve heard so many times or the 26 minuet version from the original LP.

    Has anyone heard of ten years after?

    Sorry my YouTube has gone haywire
  3. So I stumbled along this band in the realm of YouTube and I was aghast at how good they were
  4. Well it might be posssible but with all the disappointing compilations and live remasters, hopes aren’t too high. However Page has said there will be a number of unreleased surprises so maybe there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

    The Bonham Theory

    Ok so we all know Dazed and Confused from TSRTS. In about the middle, when Plant and Page are doing some little diddle together (20:33 for those interested), doesn’t it sound like Plant is saying Bonham? Please some one tell me that I’m not the only one thinks this
  6. I just realized this but I’ll be 65 for Zeppelins 100th anniversary. How old (or maybe dead) will you be at this point

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    Just because they’re old doesn’t mean they can’t still rock and roll. Rock and roll isn’t about age, it’s about the music. Sure the Stones aren’t as fast and pretty on stage as they were in the 60’s and 70’s but you’ll still buy a ticket to see the greatest play. However, Zeppelin should do one last tour for their 50th anniversary to end it all on a high note.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    This is a new development from NBC about Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven. Led Zeppelin must go back on trial in a lawsuit that accuses the legendary rock band of ripping off the intro to its rock anthem "Stairway to Heaven" from a little-known 1960s instrumental, a federal appeals court ordered on Friday. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco overturned a 2016 jury verdict that found that the British band did not steal any original music from "Taurus," a 1968 track by the Los Angeles band Spirit. Taurus" was written by the late Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe, better known as Randy California, whose trust brought the copyright infringement lawsuit. Michael Skidmore, the trustee for Wolfe, has said Led Zeppelin lead vocalist Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page may have been inspired to write 1971's "Stairway" after hearing Spirit perform "Taurus" while the bands toured together in 1968 and 1969. Skidmore has claimed Wolfe never got any credit. The defendants have said Wolfe was a songwriter for hire who did not have a copyright claim, and that the opening of "Stairway" — a descending chromatic four-chord progression — is a common musical convention that did not deserve copyright protection. The jury in the 2016 trial found that the two songs were not substantially similar. But the federal appeals court panel that overturned the 2016 ruling held that parts of the jury instructions in that trial were erroneous and prejudicial. The appeals court also found that the U.S. district court that decided the first trial abused its discretion by not allowing recordings of "Taurus" to be played during the proceedings.

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy Elvis a lot. He’s a great musician BUT, his contribution to rock and roll is nothing compared to the people he stood on the backs of. He is one of the most overrated musicians. Sure he had loads of hits but this doesn’t mean he’s “The King of Rock and Roll”. After the 50’s, he really started more into rythm and blues and country music. Chuck Berry on the other hand was a much better musician. He was and is rock and roll at its purist Side note: Nobody in any of these threads has an inability to hear a great voice because we are all Zeppelin fans

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    Well then again, John Lennon married Yoko Ono so... Also Elvis dabbled in the 50’s into Rock and Roll. Meanwhile, Chuck Berry lived and breathed the stuff. Elvis is an overrated quack

    The accidental Telecaster creation

    No the amp is still the same it’s always been (it’s a Marshall MG30FX [which already gives a great sound]). Maybe the coils in the pickups expanded or loosened from the heat and now it gives off a Telecaster sound? This what the pickups look like on the outside (you can see they’re a little sluggish from being slightly melted

    The LP corner

    This here is a topic for people who collect records/vinyl/LPs. People who know the difference between good and bad sound quality shall come to this thread. The best LPs I own (in the sense of sound, quality and original value) are a 1980 repressing of Zeppelin IV, an original pressing of Wish You Were Here and an original pressing of Paranoid.

    The accidental Telecaster creation

    So I recently took my guitar, a Rogue Rocketeer (a rather unknown and crappy guitar), and took the purple/black finish off of it. Since I’m not a electrician, I didn’t take the pickups out before using a heat gun to take off the glossy layer of laquer. So naturally the pickups started to sludge and melt a smidge as I took the varnish off. However, very nervous I broke my only guitar, I plugged it in after it was redone and to my surprise, it sounds exactly like a Jimmy Page esk Telecaster. It has that sorta fuzzy raw sound from Jimmys dragon. Anyone know how this is possible?
