AXS TV is what VH1 used to be, back in the day. Worth getting if you don't have it on your TV service.

Looks a bit crap 

How is that "crap" exactly?   What do you realistically expect them to air? 🤨

Better than nothing, I suppose. I mean, I have all those on DVD so it's not something I would watch, especially with all of AXS commercial breaks. But for those that don't have the DVDs, it gives them something to watch. They should add the 1970 RAH show to the schedule, though...and the Earls Court and Knebworth footage on the 2nd disc while they are at it.

I wish AXS would do either a “Rock Legends” show on LZ or “Classic Albums” segment on one of their albums....I keep hoping to see it, but I guess they need the cooperation of the boys...I have no idea why they wouldn’t do something like this....

Rock Legends is too short and simplistic to do justice to Zeppelin.  Classic Albums is much better but would take alot of cooperation and collaboration from the gents.

Too bad AXS TV cannot get the rights to show the Fathom Events theatrical release from March 2015 that was shown one night in theatres.  It had alot of footage from the DVD.

Didn't VH-1 have something similar with Steven Tyler narrating? Cant think of the name of it offhand. Was several years ago.

Yeah, except it’s not the same as AXS Rock Legends....VH1 basically just had a script of facts/history read by Tyler that was punctuated by clips of the band and prior interviews cobbled together, all of which we’ve all seen before....what I like about the Rock Legends is that they have people—musicians, critics, producers etc—commenting on the group just for the show, and what happened during their run, and putting it in a broader context. It just scratches the surface because it’s only 30 minutes long, but an hour or 1 1/2 hour Rock Legends on LZ would be brilliant. Come on AXS! We know the boys will never do a documentary like this but they should....
