    What is the TRUE meaning of Zoso?

    Heres a few pics that may be of interest....
  3. Devin Townsend ... cant get enough of him!
  4. That would have to be somewhere up there with the best. I think JP achieves in that one track what most guitarists have failed to achieve in a lifetime, and the climax of the violin bow is one of the most incredible moments in music..... but for me it would have to be the studio version of Kashmir, not because it was representative of Zep, but more that it was one of their greatest achievements.

    What is the TRUE meaning of Zoso?

    The symbol is not created by JP, it isn't a word, it is made up of three symbols... the Z, the Oso, and the underline attached to the Z. Its a symbol that is made up of Astrological and alchemical correspondences relating to JP's birthsign. Although it is three symbols it has been put together along time ago.... the earliest I have seen is in a table of astrological, alchemical correspondences in a French occult book from the 16th century. Its nothing complicated or mysterious but JP obviously played on the aura and mythology that grew up around the symbols, particularly his. If you think back to when the album came out and how long it was before we had access to the internet, it was very easy to maintain the mystery, and it was practically impossible to look it up. All part of the Zep aura.
  6. Has anyone watched/read Steven Greers videos, books such as 'unacknowledged'. Yes its all the rehashed UFO cases we've all read before BUT instead of 'everyday' witnesses its testimonies from Military personnel, ex-CIA, NSA, air traffic controllers, airline pilots, presidential advisers etc . The video and the book are very convincing and the 'Disclosure' conferences/press briefings etc are very interesting, but they do leave alot of questions open....such as Why hasnt anything more happened since the first conference in 2001. Why havent we got more credible evidence especially in this day and age of mobile phone/videos etc, why hasnt Steven Greer been killed/assassinated. Its very much about a global political, corporate and science conspiracy, news, research, academia is all sanitised before it is released to the public but I can't imagine it being that efficient that 'they' whoever they are manage to keep the lid on all of this.

    Elvis vs. Plant

    i can fully appreciate people having different tastes, I can understand Yes fans thinking Jon Anderson is the greatest vocalist of all time, or Genesis fans thinking its Peter Gabriel, or ELP fans thinking its Greg Lake, beacuse they were amazing unique vocalists but I'm just coming to terms with the fact that Freddie Mercury possibly is not a forum in joke and that some people here are serious...OMG!!!! HAHA!! I dont know whether to laugh or cry.

    Maybe its because some fanboys join these sites only to find so called Zeppelin fans that are totally clueless.

    Elvis vs. Plant

    Elvis is one of the biggest stars of all time, so is Frank Sinatra, but I could never rate them alongside what Robert Plant did, no where near, and Freddie Mercury?? surely this is a joke? Some forum in joke that I'm not in on?

    Elvis vs. Plant

    WOW!!!! I never expected to find so much utter BS on a Led Zep site. Seriously people go get your hearing tested! or go and stick to pop music! Freddie Mercury??!!! come on people is this a comedy site? Elvis was an amazing phenomenon there was just nothing around like him at the time, but sorry folks he isnt Robert Plant, and I've yet to hear anyone that even approaches him. Just listen to Zep 4.... listen to his vocals on 4 sticks and then the next track Going to California..... most vocalists dont achieve that differenc in style, pitch, timbre, delivery, inflection, emotion in their whole career, and thats without even going into the realms of Kashmir, SIBLY, etc etc. Plant may have had a dramatic change from72 - 73 but what he sang on the bootlegs of 73 is just so far ahead of anyone on the planet before or after. He was always more than a vocalist he was the fourth instrument in the band. He could vocalise emotions that we dont even have names for.

    Earls Court - an eye-witness account

    Yes she loved it, we were both Zep fans from quite an early age, she would have been 19 at the time, and we'd been fans since Zep 2 came out. In fact its still one of the things we talk about now, and our kids go 'Oh they're off again!'. When its that loud you don't notice bum notes, and especially with how much their music changes night after night if you did hear anything amiss you'd assume that it was just another version. I think at the time they could have played everything wrong and it would still have sounded amazing!! The screen was great as you could see their expressions or fingerwork but I kept looking from stage to screen and back. Yes I've seen that scarf! They were selling allkinds of unofficial crap outside Earls Court, I cant believe how anyone could be so stupid as to buy a scarf with a misspelling!

    Earls Court - an eye-witness account

    I think the 'high register' made him totally unique. It made him sound at times quite inhuman, animalistic, unearthly, and those albums Zep 3 to Houses and parts of P.Graff were unbelievable. Having said that, if someone asked me for my favourite vocal album ever, I think I'd have to head for the LA Forum in 1973 in which he didnt sing high register. I'm sure its a topic thats been covered before somewhere, but its still abit of a mystery to me why at that still young age he had to switch vocal styles. I'm assuming that the volume he used to sing at, the high register 'strain', and the fact he didnt do a vocal warm up before shows, night after night had something to do with it, but it just seemed such a dramatic change from 72 to 73?
