    Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Was considering going to the Auckland show but I will be at a wedding in Rarotonga at the time! Ah well, being on Rarotonga is a pretty good trade off I think!

    LED ZEPPELIN'S 50th ANNIVERSARY PLANS?

    I remember the excitement during the lead up the Stones 50th anniversary, culminating in the announcement of the four London & New York dates. There were fears the band would never play together again due to Keith's book, and his seemingly very frail physical condition. Here we are 6 years later and they're still going strong, starting another tour. Granted, they are an oldies act now and have been for a long time, with their last release in 2005. Sadly, I feel none of the same with the impending Zeppelin anniversary. And not just because there's 0% chance of any concerts being announced. If anything is released it will just be another rehash of already available material. This brings me to another area where the Stones are considerably better, the release of live shows, warts and all. The 'From the Vault' series has been great, with consistent releases every few months. Now, if only Jimmy and co would sign off on a similar series - they would sell like hotcakes.

    What's the worst live performance of a song?

    Didn''t he break a string during ALS at the second Knebworth show? Regardless, it does sound pretty bad right out of the gate. The guitar sounds out of tune, and he is flubbing notes all over the place. I've only listened to that version a handful of times. Strangely though I do love NQ from the 11th.
  5. Is Page gonna bootleg the bootleggers (to steal the name from a Johnny Thunders album) and get this out before EV? Highly doubt it, but man he is falling behind the 8 ball. This is like a holy grail man and has been talked about since the 70s.

    Seattle 1977

    Watching that clip brought back memories of throwing that dvd on after far too many drinks and rocking out! Right on man.

    Umphrey's McGee

    That's a cool track, I've listened to a few of their live shows on spotify. Top notch stuff.

    Rolling Stones Thread

    I love the Stones. However, this last latest tour has been a pretty lackluster affair so far. The Setlist remains largely unchanged from the last 5 years, and Keith's playing is reaching Chuck Berry in his later years level of bad. Just listen to any one song and you can hear multiple mistakes. They are phoning it in, really don't know why Mick Taylor was brought back into the fold to play 1-2 songs and then was gone again. His playing elevated the band to another level and if he had been allowed to play whole concerts people might still be talking about the music instead of just how amazing it is the Stones are still touring at their age. Maybe he quit again like in '74, I'd wager though that Keith and Ronnie didn't like that his playing is above and beyond their current levels. Just imagine what they could have done with songs like Sympathy with MT on board. Now all you get is Keith hitting some chords off key, and attempting to play a couple of 'solos' which in all honesty are pretty painful to listen to a lot of the time. He has a long history of substance abuse, very arthritic hands and a head injury so it's no surprise really - but they are charging astronomical amounts of money to see them. If you want a comparison look no further than someone like Pete Townshend, who is still absolutely slaying the guitar every night, with a huge loss of his hearing to boot. Nobody beats father time.

    BEST LIVE VERSION OF NO QUARTER?

    ^ A classic version indeed. It's absolutely criminal that there is no officially released live version of NQ apart from the TSRTS.

    After 3/21/75. . Whats next??

    Wasn't that leaked by an ex showco employee or something? Jimmy had given it to him for the timing of the laser pyramid at Knebworth I think?

    My matrix of New Orleans '73

    Have the links been taken down? Or are they not able to be listened to people outside of the US? I'm really keen to hear this!

    New Mystery Soundboard?

    Man, I really rate Houston '77 though that may be because it was one of the first soundboards of '77 I listened to (I am only 27 after all!). I think that No Quarter in particular smokes, I'll never forget blasting it with a good friend after a number of vodkas and a couple of joints through an amazing sounding stereo on an island with hardly anyone else around. In My Time of Dying is also really good IMO. Hmmm might have to dig this one up off whichever harddrive I've got it on and have a listen while I'm doing my weekly cooking session tomorrow...
  13. Yup, as Strider said - the whole of '77 and '79 he had the piano.

    Sounds great Sue! Good job, sounds a lot more filled and rounded out.

    New Mystery Soundboard?

    A user here called 'The Rover' who was at the show has said many times that there was no video on the screen. This doesn't mean however that the private box screens weren't on.
