  1. Ten Years Gone

    That whole weekend leading up to the show was so much fun. Starting when I stepped off the plane and the immigration agent asked how long I was staying. When I replied I was going home on Dec. 11 he asked in a dry tone if I was there for the Led Zeppelin concert. The gatherings the night before the concert, even the long wait to pick up ticket and wristband and then wait again in the merchandise line just built up the buzz and anticipation. Finally, standing in the crowd on the arena floor witnessing such a wonderful show. Truly, a spectacular adventure. Still hard to believe it was ten years ago.
  2. Warner Bros. Aborted Led Zeppelin Movie Project

    If I recall, the Plant character's line was something like "What do I know, I'm just the singer" but I thought it sounded sarcastic, as if his real meaning was: I'm not stupid so don't waste my time with bullshit. To me, he didn't seem clueless at all. Anyway, I know there isn't much point in me dissecting a small bit of a dead show but I just had a different perspective on that particular scene.
  3. I was on the fence for awhile because I thought it was kind of expensive for a conversation without a musical performance but I finally bought a ticket. It comes with a copy of the book too.
  4. CELEBRATION DAY MOVIE: ROLL CALL!

    We aren't able to go on Oct. 17th because we have concert tickets, but AMC is offering a screening on the 18th. I've got tickets now ($18 apiece), and I've pre-ordered the Deluxe edition. I can't wait to re-live that night a little!
  5. Led Zep O2 Memories.......

    Thanks for posting that link! That was such an incredible experience and I'll treasure it forever.
  6. Screenings of Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day!

    It looks like it's going to play where I live, but we already have concert tickets for Oct. 17. If they add a midnight show I could do both, otherwise I'll just wait for the DVD. I've waited five years already, another month won't hurt. Either way, I'm looking forward to re-living that night.
  7. Several years ago we were at a conference in Cincinnati and took a few days after to wander around in Ohio. Number one on the list for me was a pilgrimage to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. We really enjoyed it and I recommend it. We liked the Air Force Museum in Dayton too.
  8. New "FIVE" graphic on Official fb page

    Just hearing that teaser of GTBT gives me chills again. Truly. I wouldn't trade that night, that whole weekend, for anything.
  9. Happy Birthday Robert!

    Happy Birthday!
  10. Who is..

    Thank you for posting! Very cool!
  11. What's the Last Concert You Attended?

    The Beach Boys last night at the Hollywood Bowl.
  12. Happy Birthday John Paul Jones

    Happy (belated) birthday!
  13. Happy Birthday Jimmy Page!

    Happy Birthday!
  14. John Carter

    I think the trailers for the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo began showing sometime last summer, but the movie opens on 12/21/2011, which is right around the corner.
  15. Fourth Anniversary Tomorrow!

    I watched the DVD again. I haven't tried to spot myself in the crowd on the floor, but I don't think I'm visible anyway. I really hope that there is an official release someday. Well, there's not much I can add to what's already been said. It was an incredible night and I would do it all over again.
  16. Tribute bands

    I saw Led Zepagain awhile back and they were excellent. I think they recreate the complete setlists from particular shows. The night I saw them they played one of the 6/77 LA Forum sets. Dazed and Confused is a tribute band in San Diego. I just saw them recently and they were also very good, definitely worth seeing.
  17. Madison Square Garden Reunion 1988

    I never saw the televised version. I do remember Robert messing up some of the lyrics, but I thought the sound was good.
  18. Box of Frogs

    I haven't listened to the debut album in a long time, but I remember liking it when it came out, especially the tracks with Jeff Beck. I think I'll give it another spin. The follow-up LP didn't grab me at all, though.
  19. Madison Square Garden Reunion 1988

    Thanks for sharing the production sheet. I had read somewhere that they rehearsed I Can't Quit You. I was there too, and in spite of the mistakes I thought it was better than the Live-Aid performance and the excitement of seeing them in person again outweighed the flaws for me.
  20. Have you see this?

    I liked it, I thought it was amusing.
  21. The new supergroup: BLACK COUNTRY

    His last name sounded like "Sherinian" so that must be right.
  22. The new supergroup: BLACK COUNTRY

    It sounded like the Deep Purple song. I don't have the setlist with me and I can't remember what the title of the first song was. I'll look at it again later.
  23. The new supergroup: BLACK COUNTRY

    He didn't actually say it, but I got the setlist from the sound engineer and it says "BC" before the encore, which I assume means "Black Country."
  24. The new supergroup: BLACK COUNTRY

    I saw their public debut last night. Joe Bonamassa played at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium, and when he came back for the encore, he said the rumors are true that he's joined a new band, and then Jason Bonham, Glenn Hughes, and a keyboard player whose name I didn't catch came on stage. They played two songs and I can't remember the name of the first one but the second one was Mistreated. They were good and I would like to hear them play a full length set.
