  1. Plant's vocals on I'm Gonna Crawl

    I'm Gonna Crawl is one of my Fave tracks off of ITTOD. Great song. Even though I am not a big fan of ITTOD. Its a stand out track and its one of Zep's last big Blues. Like I Can't Quite You Babe in a Waltz style. I should play it as a Wedding song if I get married one Day.
  2. What did they think of other bands

    For Classic Artists. Led Zeppelin and James Brown are tied for me. Love them both equally. Its funny. Both of them are very powerful live. I don't know if one could out rock the other. James Brown's prime where he was most feirce was 1965 to 1975. Zep 1969 to 1976.
  3. When Judas Priest came on the scene. They almost came off like Zep. Then they donned leather and became the band that is the Flagship of Metal. Whats your take on Zep and Judas Priest similarties of differences.
  4. The later albums?

    I love all the albums from Zep 1 to PG. Presence has ALS/FYL/NFBM are the only songs I like. ITTOD has ITE/FITR/C/IGC thats it for me. I feel like ITTOD with the exception of Bonzo. Its like Zep aged overnight. Pages Guitar army sounds thin and does not roar. Robert Plant sounds good but tired. JPJ is good but ever his energy is lower. Notice how rare it is for Zep when they do reunions or in solo shows. They don't do songs from that era.
  5. Its funny that even though I don't listen to much Radio. When I do. I hear Zep songs and it feels like a lot of Zep songs are poular and have more mass appeal, than say Sabbath/Purple songs for example. Basically it seems like Sabbath/Purple Songs don't resonate beyond the popular hits from them. Except for some songs off of Presence and ITTOD/Coda. You can drop me into any part of a Zeppelin songs and I will know it.
  6. RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    To my ears. This is how Rival Sons shore up album rise. Before the Fire-B/Pressure and TIme-A/EP-A/Head Down-A+/Great Western Valkyrie-A++/Hollow Bones-B. They are a really great band and emulae Zeps live improve Groove.
  7. Just speculating. After flirting with different styles. Do you think that Robert will return to his Zeppelin roots on his next album. It seems like he has been really trying to get away from any type of songs that bring to mind his Zeppelin roots. Esspeically his last couple of albums. For some reason that I have yet to articulate well. I think that Page is going to stay closer to his Zeppelin roots for his new album when it comes out. What do you all think?
  8. Top 5 bands of all time

    Rival Sons/Led Zeppelin/James Brown's JB's/AC/DC,The Rolling Stones.
  9. RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    I am on the Rival Sons Facebook page. These guys are the real deal and they have a lot of great songs. Its one thing for one or two songs to hit big and have filler. Its another thing for at least 90% of the songs I hear from Rival Sons to really hit the spot. Everyone tries to link them to Zep, but for me. Its the Songwriting craft that both bands have in common more than anything else. Rival Sons to me have a better edit button on their songs and stretch out live. The added thing they have that Zep don't is that Rival Sons can reference Zeps era. Where Zep could only really look to the blues and 50's rock and roll/some english folklore as well. Rival Sons are in the Studio as we speak, as of this post. The album will be produced by Dave Cobb and we should see a Jan/Feb release,because they give themselves at least a month to cook with songs. They also start the Deep Purple tour in Nov. I am also sure Rival Sons want some time with thier families before they do basically do Deep Purple/Black Sabbath back to back.
  10. RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    My Fave band. Really great guys and I have met 4 of them so far. They are the Zeppelin of their generation.
  11. RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    These guys are great live and I have met some of them in person at their concerts, when they do meet and greets. Everyone should check them out.
  12. Just curious. With the exception of Babe. Do you all see major progression with Zep songs such as Communication Breakdown/Dazed and Confused and How Many More Times from Denmark May 19/1969 to Royal Albert Jan 6 1970. What are the the things that you think separates the performances and whats the big difference. Robert Plant voice seems more dry and rough in 69. More fluid and sparky in 70. Wow what a difference in about 9 months or so. Even Page sounds more Mage like with his usual tricks. Bonzo and Jones are solid. Bonzo looks like he about to destroy that drum kit in 69 where as in 70 I feel like he drumming on some classic car like a cadilac. JPJones is great on both. For some reason with the Denmark show. Zep sounds dry and scratchy. Royal Albert more exotic voodoo safari. On The Song Remains the Same. Zep sound more Slick. Like a well oiled Magic Show. I am just trying to gauge the Trajectory of Zeps live show documented on Video.
  13. Rival Sons & The Tea Party

    Thats a great line up. Although I say that Rival Sons are really going to be the main act to watch. They are really great. I mean Zeppelin Great. They have a new album called Great Western Valkyrie coming out.
  14. Best Zeppelin songs

    For me I will go by Album. I am using abbreviation just to cut down writing out all the songs. LZ1-GTBT/BIGLY/CB/YTIGC/HMMT LZ2-The whole Album except for Thank You LZ3- The whole album Zoso-The whole album HOTH The whole album except for DM PG the whole album P-ALS/FYL/NFBM ITTOD-FITR/C/ITE/IGC SRTS-The whole album Coda-The whole album If I had to cherry pick it would be.... GTBT/HMMT/LS/RO/LLM/HB/BD/MMH/RR/WTLB/NQ/DD/All of PG and on P-FYL/ALS and on ITTOD-FITR/IGC/C In my head. When I think of LZ. I always think of slow suductive riffs more than the faster ones. Like I think of Kashmir and When the Levee breaks more than Rock and Roll and Communication Breakdown.
  15. There has been a lot of buzz about Rival Sons lately.
