  1. Around 1977 we all know the tragedy that befell R, Plant and his son. As the story goes, Plant was considering becoming a teacher of some sort. He was truly intending to leave Zeppelin behind. Well there is many videos and article stating that it was Bonham encouraging Plant to comeback. Well they end up making 1 more album, and then doing a small tour of Europe; before heading off to America. Well the last time Zeppelin was preparing for the American tour, John Bonham kinda freaks out while drunk saying "He doesn't want to do this anymore, I want to sing, I am not that good of a drummer now." (I am paraphrasing of course.) So this is my problem with this situation: What changed in Bonzo?, Was the drinking taking a serious effect on his mental health? If he didn't want to be a drummer anymore, why ask Robert to comeback? Was there an underling issue with Bonzo from the beginning? I have read to many stories of his rage against anyone. Was John Bonham bipolar ? I know the only people that could answer these questions would be the band members and family, though I think it raises a good question. https://www.loudersound.com/features/the-last-days-of-led-zeppelin-days-of-thunder

    Jimmy We don't need a photograph book. I just don't see the point? It is a slap in the face to the people who bought the Super Deluxe editions. Why not just open the bootleg vaults and re master the best of the best concerts.

    That is incredible. It just shows how timeless Led Zeppelin is.
  4. Do not read When Giants Walked the Earth. It was a horrible account on Led Zeppelin. I tossed it in the trash.

    top 5 favorite No Quarters

    Holy cow that is an Amazing version of NO QUARTER. WOW !!! I always thought NQ was kinda the bathroom break song for the 1977 tour. Because the Seattle 1973 is incredible. No disrespect to those that like the NQ 1977 versions, in my opinion they could have cut the length of NQ and play more tracks off Presence, imagine hearing "Hot's on for No where" "candy store Rock".
  7. I am sorry if this conversation has been written before. In saying that I shall begin. Not being the biggest fan of Live unofficial recordings (bootlegs) I had to try open my prospective on the issue. I know that the sound is not alway the best so I learned to listen to the performance, and in doing so I discovered that their is some hidden gems in these sometimes horrible recordings. One show that comes into mind is Kezar stadium show in 1973. Bonzo is a mad man on celebration day, and Page is the wizard I've only heard legends about. Than they explode into a mean version of Black Dog. Plant doing his best to hit those incredibly hard notes that would rip my lungs in two if I tried that scream at the end of B.D. The power Zeppelin had during their live shows has not been matched today by any band. I am very happy that Zeppelin collectors are sharing the magic of live LED ZEPPELIN. My Zepptology continues.

    1984 Film 'Scream For Help' Coming On Blu-Ray (JPJ Soundtrack)

    My Gosh. My sister bought the soundtrack and listen to it once and put it away. That is terrible. JPJ did much better later on with other production work. I like what he did with Buttholesurfers, and REM.

    Robert meets up with Jimmy & JPJ recently

    I may not like the idea of Robert Plant always turning down a Zeppelin reunion, though this has been the case since 1982. Led Zeppelin is done, at least with Robert as a singer. Furthermore I have read in this forum that Jimmy Page might not be able to play guitar anymore because of his hands. I don't know if that is true or not but the question has to be asked? "how come Page always claims he has new music coming" I personally think Page is not able to write new tunes.

    Japan 1972

    I really Hope that Jimmy doesn't release these shows. The set-list for these shows are already on an official release. I hope that he has something from the 1977 tour, or 1980 tour over Europe. If anything why not anything from 1969 American tour?

    Thefts of recordings from Jimmy Page's home...

    Here are the facts. Jimmy Page did go to court over these bootlegs being sold. he seizure of CDs and DVDs included counterfeit Led Zeppelin material valued at an estimated £11,500, a £220 set of recordings from a Led Zeppelin tour in Japan and a £40 set of a warm-up session in Denmark. It also included an estimated £1,790 BPI anti-piracy manager David Wood welcomed Langley's conviction. "Langley was notorious in the trade for the sale and distribution of bootlegs and is another of the major bootleggers to be convicted. He'd amassed a huge personal fortune by ripping off musicians, record labels, music publishers, and the state, but justice has finally caught up with him," he said. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/08/01/led_zep_piracy_conviction/

    Mono mixes on ITTOD companion?

    I bought the Deluxe two cd set. I find the version to be sub par at best, sounds horrible, and it was a big low point of the companion cds. Out of all of them I thought In Through The Out Door Companion disc sounded terrible. Considering their is a excellent extended version in the archives. (All My Love).

    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    I was listening to some of these "live recordings" and the quality is just terrible. I am not complaining or anything because I love how Zeppelin changed the songs from night to night. Though the recordings Iv'e heard on this post {NYC77} are terrible. I am totally sure if you where there it was amazing show. Can you guys guide me to better sounding Zeppelin shows, with rich bass, thundering Bonzo, wizard spider finger Page, and howling wolf Plant? Besides Listen to this Eddie.....

    To me I find the situation regarding John Bonham very sad. Such an amazing drummer with a fire that could not be sustained. His drinking was his swan song. Reading from Richard Cole Book Stairway to heaven, he makes Bonzo look like a total drunk. By passes the fact the man was a loving father, a caring husband, and a brother and son. Bonham to me would have retired on his farm with his wife Pat, sing songs as a golden sun goes down. Happy Birthday Mr. Bonham.
  16. In Dave Lewis book (The complete guide to the music of Led Zeppelin.) Their live shows after 1973 were much more spectacular. It is a shame that there is no official visual record of Earls Court, 1975. The US 1977 tour or Knebworth, All have these shows were filmed for the group and remain in the archives. Having been privileged enough to seen these video tapes. I can endorse the fact they capture the magic of live Led Zep, far better than The Song Remains The Same. (P.72) My question is this. What shows in 1977 are there besides Seattle, and a so called Pontiac Dome shows has he seen? Are these the live shows that Jimmy Page is working on for release for Led Zeppelin 50th ?
  17. If I had to choose just one Led Zeppelin song. I would have to choose the song that started the industrial revolution. When The Levee Breaks.
