I hate Zeppelin tribute bands

36 posts in this topic

...I'd much rather hear a tribute band play great music than an original band play their own crap songs.  There are a lot of great musicians - and a lot of great bands out there, but that doesn't mean  they can write songs.  If I'm paying to see a band I prefer hearing good songs - even if they aren't played as well as the originals.

I just joined up. Im Lori. As highly as you all love Zep, try opening your minds a little. Bands like Rush and Dream Theater and countless others. Im a head banger from birth, was raised being forced to listen to classical and opera. I love Depeche Mode, B-52 amongst others. Oh and BTW. Im a Wiccan from birth. Its in my DNA.I was born in 1963, saw Zeps second to last show at Oakland Coliseum. Bill Grahams A Day on the GREEN. July 23, 1977. This was my first concert.

Some of the members here are the biggest Rush fans you'll ever find. Weird post.

The question is moot point for me because I don't really care to attend live concerts of ANY band, including all my favourites.  

 

To be completely honest, if Led Zeppelin were performing a three hour concert this summer in the nearest major city and you gave me 2 free tickets, I might just prefer to auction those tickets off for charity and watch the concert on TV at home (if that were possible).  I just hate huge crowds and terribly loud noise that I cannot easily get away from when I wish to.  Stuck in a big crowd surrounded by deafening sound - no thanks!

...I find that very sad as you get a vibe at a live gig that cannot possibly be captured on tape.  I hope you are able to overcome that fear in the near future!

I challenge anyone to come away from a Jimmy Sakurai (Mr. Jimmy) gig and not be completely blown away the tribute performance he delivers.   

could not agree more. 

My favorite is Led Zepagain. They have grown into a tight family of wonderful people. Picking up Derek Smith on drums is huge. It works, it fits and its a very good time.

All four people are just great people as are the members of their families and crew. The love what they do.  They have earned the success they are enjoying- and the success to come. Safe travels on the world tour.

Saw ZOSO many times, I think they are great. What was really cool was the youngsters (15 or 16?) right next to the stage who sang along and knew every word of every song ZOSO did.

Of course the problem with that summation is one can go to see the Sistine Chapel, but one cannot go to see Led Zeppelin. Look, I'm not nor have I ever been that excited by or interested in Led Zeppelin tribute bands, but even so I can see they are serving supply to demand and appreciate the best among them. I challenge anyone to come away from a Jimmy Sakurai (Mr. Jimmy) gig and not be completely blown away the tribute performance he delivers.   

He might be the most accurate tribute in the world. The movement and sound creates the same energy Pagey did. Sakurai's 77 style ALS are absolutely mind blowing he nails the movement on clone like levels.
