    Robert Plant Oakland 07/24/77

    so two of the band say the tour wasn't up to par, or "showboating". I cant see how any one can argue that Page wasn't up to par for the tour. he may have had some good nights but his average was low and he spent too much time on stage alone, as did Bonham. ive never seen any of the band say anything detrimental about any of the tours between 68 - 73, and probably up to 75. its all a matter of opinion of course but I don't see any argument for 77 tour playing being better than any year up to 73. I prefer 75 to 77 but that's mostly for the set lists. I don't like the 77 shows because for 1 to 1.5 out of 3.5 hours there's only one of the band of the stage at a time. and they played many enormo-domes which generally aren't good for bands trying to create "feel"

    Led Zeppelin favourite to headline Glastonbury 2019

    despite the obvious barriers to this happening, like the band splitting up 38 years ago and Planty adamant pretty much ever since then that he doesn't want to revisit it, besides the extremely rare occasions. the other factor that is that I cant see Page agreeing to play this gig which goes out live in national tv. they'll be as rusty as hell and it'd be risky to try to regain any magic in front of tv cameras recording everything also tickets are very difficult to obtain and so it wouldn't really be a Zeppelin audience

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    is he just going to endlessly rerelease all the albums every few years ? its been while since all the studio albums were remastered. maybe he ought to think about rejigging them again. someone have a word with him. ive lost all confidence in the man. he may have been one of the greatest guitar players, producers and showmen in the 1870s, but now he's actually in his 70s he's a liability to his own and the bands heritage
  4. with regard to the new 4 LP set, is this a remastering of the original 76 album with the added tracks, which IMO is what he should have done in the first place in 07, or is it a remaster of the 07 release? either way there is the potential he could edit and faff about with it thereby creating a THIRD version of the album what a sack of shit someone take the vault keys of jimmy and let someone else take charge. he released HTWWW with awful sound which meant he had to rerelease it after making it right, and the release of TSRTS in 07 was without question the worst edited album I have ever heard by any band id like to have the original 76 album with added tracks in improved sound but if he releases that can I get my money back for the botched 07 release?
  5. we know that age claims that he had some tapes stolen while he was working on his solo album and that he had originally intended for it to be a double album, but has the theft ever been confirmed or was it just another of what we now know as his "stretching of the truth" to put it diplomatically
  6. the decision to record two new songs got abba in the news for a day. but when the tunes are actually released, expect a bit more in the press then there'll be poor sales and the whole thing will fizzle out, like these things generally tend to do. the Beatles tried it, Stones had Jagger adding new vocals to 40 year old unreleased tracks and it was shite, leave it, Zeppelin ended 38 years ago. just ponder that for a moment 38 years ago. I expect there's quite a few people on this forum who may not even have been born when the band ended. Page lost his mojo decades ago, Plant continues but in a modified style as he cant do what he used to way back. despite what some people seem to think Jason Bonham is not Bonzo reincarnated, so that leaves JPJ as probably the most active and still capable of doing it I have no interest in new songs, or completing unfinished old music, and I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. I don't thinks there are too many fans who still play the new songs from Unledded, or the WIC album which were 20 and 25 years ago (?) and yet all this time later its thought they should still or even could, make new relevant valued material its the daftest thing ive heard for ages

    Munich 1980

    I revisited this show last night as its been many many years since I last heard it. SIBLY had a nice solo but I thought the drumming overall was a bit lacking. ALS in particular sounded lacklustre from bonzo
  8. if he means he's never cranked it up in the house, then fair enough, but to say he hasn't played electric guitar in that house since the early 70s seems pretty far fetched to me. however whatever he needs to say to sway the planning permission wrangle is what he's going to say, same as we all would its difficult to trust anything he says these days
  9. Galymcd, in the event you do get closer to your aim, it may help your cause if you want it signed to you, rather than just his signature on it. Any object signed to "Trevor" isn't as desirable to a general collector, except if the collector is also named Trevor
  10. It was when Jimmy lived at the Old Mill House that I wrote to him and he signed a drawing I'd done (a tracing of a characture of him, I have no artistic skills) and he posted it back to me. It was after Bonham died, a national paper printed the address of Jimmys house in a report and as a naive 15 year old, I thought Bingo! and gave it a shot and got lucky.
  11. You dont want to sell it. But the more signatures you collect on it, the greater it's value until one day you may decide you can't afford not to sell it. id say you'd have more chance of getting it signed if you were to sell it for charity. Otherwise it really isn't going to happen, otherwise many other people would be doing the same thing

    Stairway To Heaven Tattoo (HELP)

    You're going to get your whole arm tattooed with a reference to a song that you don't know well enough to come up with your own ideas for?
  14. Which sections of the the ocean have the two guitars? I'd like to check it out the garden tapes doesn't remark on it
  15. Coda, despite its limitations and later added overdubs, was a Led Zeppelin album. How could a new recorded album with 3 ex members and the son of another, thirty eight years later, be more of a Led Zeppelin "original" album than Coda, even if it was only left overs and out takes?
