    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    He could be too busy practicing for his new solo record. Maybe we will see him playing somewhere soon 🤣

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    So Jimmy's "promises" remain nonsense as usual. Disappointing. Wait, next we will see a remastered "DVD" I guess. The only release that hasn't been re-issued yet. New live material remains an illusion.

    09/29/1971 Osaka - Stairway To Heaven - EVSD SBD Single

    Plant is also out of pitch on some parts after the guitar solo. Jimmy would have to use pitch correction.

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    This was debated here some time ago I think. We will never know how Robert's career would have evolved if Jimmy didn't ask him to join LZ. However, one think is quite obvious: He wouldn't have the same privileged life hadn't he been in Zep.

    Here is the "full" version of the songs released to date, including Immigrant song and full Stairway to heaven. Unfortunately not downloadable from YT :/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Buxzdq5oqxI

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    What a disappointment AGAIN from Mr. Page. He should stop giving interviews talking about "new stuff". Maybe he'll start to remaster the remasters from I, II and III again since it's been already a few years since they were relased.

    Underrated/overrated shows

    Maybe I should give it another listen. I listened to both shows a few years ago and remember that I wasn't impressed with Jimmy. I repect other opinions, of course. My problem with the 1980 shows beside Page's heroin demons is the sound(s). For example, I don't like Jones' keyboard and bass sound (especially his sound on stariway sucks and doesn't fit the song). Also the drums sound somewhat dry. The whole feeling of these shows is a bit negative IMO. Edit: I just finished listening to Stairway from the Frankfurt show. I usually use Stairway to judge Jimmy's playing on a given night. Here he sounds REALLY awful. It hurts to listen to this crap, especially when you know all the good versions of that song 😕

    Underrated/overrated shows

    Well, his solos on the 1980 tour suck. His fingers are so sticky, it hurts me listening as a guitar player myself. His rhythm work is ok, though.

    Underrated/overrated shows

    Overrated: 1980 tour I never understood why it gets some praise. Well, some performances are ok. However, from a guitar players POV the whole tour is just an awful display of professionalism, even by a R'n'R Band's standard.

    Nitpicking Page 1977

    Thanks. Never listened to this show. I found another version of it that is better sounding than the "Badgeholders annual meeting" version.

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    Ridiculous to even question Elivs' impact on the music culture. Elvis was an interpreter, who took other songs and made them better. This is a talent itself. The way he sang, the way he moved while performing... This hadn't been there before. At least not on a nation-wide TV broadcast. You don't have to be a composer in order to be the best at something in a musical context. Take classical musicans for example. Does the best violinist have to write his own tunes in order to be the best? Chuck Berry wrote great song, that is for sure. However, I never thought of him as a "great" guitar player. Good ideas, but weak execution. There were much better players at the time.

    Any bluegrass fans?

    Here's a nice show when Toni could still sing. A true bluegrass legend and one of the best acoustic guitar players ever!

    Any bluegrass fans?

    One of the best shows I've ever seen. High class playing from both.
