  1. Today
  2. Yep! The extremists on both sides somehow are allowed to frame the debate and rational, logical, fact-based debate becomes totally impossible. Who ever screams the loudest, acts the most absurd, gets to be covered by the media. And now we have a "media source" for everyone's personal point of view, that way they never even have to consider any other ideas. Ever heard of the Dunning Kruger Effect https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning–Kruger_effect or Confirmation Bias https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias ? That's what's going on here...
  3. This is the problem at the moment. The left to the right - looks like ^that. The right to the left look like what gibsonfan159 proposes. ^these are the loudest - but NOT majority groups within each "camp". The fact their even are distinctive camps at all is so stupid. Can one not have views on a range of topics that are left in some quarters and right in others? - or God forbid - fairly central/flexible somewhat/non-extreme? You know - like drawing conclusions or having positions on things because you think the position is fair (including some flexibility realising there are millions of others with different views) regardless of where on the bullshit "left--right" specturm it fits??? People who really rally around a single "side" and try to find a position on everything that aligns with that "side" are either too hardcore to have any meaningful dialogue with or are simply untrustworthy/dishonest. I'm telling you - if this rubbish keeps up, kiss goodbye to a progressive functioning democracy. While this complete bullshit distracts us all - in comes surveillance and security laws that will fundamentally shift the liberty and freedoms we take for granted. In comes the disintegration of fact/data/honesty/truth in political and public discourse eroding any ability to deal with important emerging questions. If the democratic west stalls now - why wouldn't the rise of Authoritarian style government continue to ascend? Do you really think the west is immune from a slide away from democracy??? It's already underway. But we are too distracted to see or care. In 100 years is this period of time going to be looked back upon as anything but a sad tragedy for what the current political reality (worldwide) is??? It is great in a democratic sense that we challenge the status-quo/system - but to what end? It seems to be a fight that has no goal or logical conclusion other than to self implode the Western democratic system that has until recently served us well. But what comes next?
  4. Three of the Greats, Paul, Bart, and Vince...
  5. One cannot have a serious discussion about the greatest quarterbacks of all time without mentioning Bart Starr. A truly great man.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Couldn't have possibly made my point any clearer.
  8. R.I.P. Bart Starr! One of the greats!
  9. Jason Bonham Performs Led Zeppelin Classics With Billy Joel: http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/jason-bonham-performs-led-zeppelin-classics-with-billy-joel-video/

  11. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/deep-purples-ian-gillan-doesnt-think-its-right-for-him-to-pass-comment-on-new-rock-bands/
  12. Flotsam And Jetsam Guitarist: 'We Stay Away From Politics Because Music Is People's Exit From Reality': http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/flotsam-and-jetsam-guitarist-we-stay-away-from-politics-because-music-is-peoples-exit-from-reality/
  13. Tom Morello: 'Don't Wait Around For Rage Against The Machine': http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/tom-morello-dont-wait-around-for-rage-against-the-machine/
  14. So I saw the exhibit this weekend. Liked it a lot. Jimmy is on film playing bits of Stairway, Kashmir and Communication Breakdown. All with commentary about the guitars etc... Pretty cool but a shame he has become a museum artefact as opposed to a working musician!!!
  15. Black Dog - International collaboration recorded last year. They've also recorded Rock And Roll & Whole Lotta Love Alyona Yarushina (Russia) - Vocals Andrei Cerbu (Romania) - Guitar Sina (Germany) - Drums Mike Wilbury (Germany) - Bass Mike is Sina's dad, and he did not wish to appear in the video.
  16. Yeah, gotta love those logic and debate skills coming from the other side.
  17. Fabulous!!! I was at the show on the 30th
  18. I can't take it, I want Hockey!!!!!!
  19. Tomorrow, Memorial day, will be 42 years to the day that I saw Led Zeppelin in Landover, MD. Advertized as Washington DC of course the concert was at the old Capital Centre.
  20. Yes, this idea was discussed on the recent LA75 Soundboard thread. Definitely plausible, but then people would have their money tied up in one way or another waiting for the order list to grow to sufficient size. Since EV hasn't opted to go this route, probably we can conclude that this market simply isn't big enough.
  21. To quote Mick Jagger - Who's fighting and what for? Why are we fighting! Bootlegs are a key component of the Zeppelin (and many other's) legacy. I find it quite enjoyable and necessary to discuss various gigs with the people in this forum. I'd love to see a Netflix type doc on this topic. They can start with the legend about Bob Dylan's Great White Wonder and cover everything from Mike Millard to the Grateful Dead and Phish, etc. Could not agree more......
  22. I haven't heard a Menswear reference in YEARS! I was a big Charlatans UK fan back in the day and saw them open for The CUK in the mid-1990's at a club in Chicago - The Metro or The Vic. Looking forward to this for sure!
  23. A TV News channel today came up with an interesting abbreviation for Boris Johnson's name : BoJo. Being The Doors fan that I am, my brain soon switched to a rather interesting variant of the line Mr. Mojo Risin': Mr. BoJo Risin' I couldn't help but make this silly pun, given that BoJo is one of the contenders for the post of Britain's Next PM!
  24. ^^Funny how clueless everybody was, nobody there even knew what a David Lee Roth is
  25. I have a feeling we will see some trickling out of the early 75 tour shows in SBD. Either Chicago or Minn. I would love to hear that early set list with Wanton and Levee in SBD quality.
  26. This is why conservatives are going to lose the battle. Their sense of logic and debate skills never rise above 8th grade level. I'm pro-second amendment, but every time someone on the right tries to argue I lose some hope.
