  1. Past hour
  2. Funny you mention that part of WLL ( I heard ...) when I first heard it I thought it was kinda cool like some personal story of Roberts parents having worried about his career ambitions. As I grew older and bought HTWWW I thought “wow Zeppelin never really changed it from their previous tour?” Because Zeppelin during their 71, 70 tours WLL always played melodies from other bands like Buffalo Springfield, Other 60s bands I cannot recall, of course the African American deep Mississippi blues melodies no body did it better then Zeppelin. Jimmy Page shines the brightest when jamming those old blues tunes, Bonzo Jones combo keeping the rhythm was unstoppable. That’s why the WLL and Black dog on TSRTS are 1 of the best. Blueberry Hill version of WLL is amazing as is the Version of Communication breakdown Melody. I personally think 1971 is Zeppelin at it’s best and rawest.
  3. Today
  4. How bout the time Grant had Cole & LZ's roadies beat the shit out of a bunch of teamsters for trying to prevent Zep's crew from working the venue? I love that shit!
  5. I too like the shortened version of Black Dog in TSRTS. Also I believe it's Jimmy's best ever hair presentation at the end of the song in the movie. Not to puffy or curly or short.
  6. Did Bill Graham and his crew not have a reputation for intimidation and throwing their weight about? In which case, it rings hollow when they come off worse and cry about it. There's always someone harder than you.
  7. I have a 50 watt 1976 Marshall MK2 Master Model. At the beginning of a gig, I had the volume at about 6, by the end it was cranked to 8. Combined with a Boss over drive pedal and run through the PA, I was very happy with the tone. Also, it's played through a 4x12 Marshall slant cabinet. Only changed the tubes twice since I got it back in 1982.
  8. Bs kicked ass again last night! They could go all the way.
  9. That site has Golden Dawn's Knebworth Masters – 30th Anniversary Edition, not Lighthouse's; in addition a part is corrupted, so I don't suggest to downloading it from there. Anyway, Golden Dawn's is considered the best video bootleg of that night; it features Winston excellent matrix as audio source, but a purist could prefer the unadultereted video feedback. Regarding the second night I'm not totally sure about which version is the best by a video standpoint, but I think the consensus goes with Genuine Masters' Return of the Dinosaurs.

  11. Horrific and brutal? Well, it's all relative I suppose but given Cole and Bindon were only charged with two counts each of assault and Grant and Bonham one count each, as opposed to higher charges I tend to believe he took a couple of beatings but neither resulted in life threatening injuries. That he was able to escape under his own power as opposed to being knocked unconscious further attests to this. We have discussed it here at length before:
  12. Seriously? Jim Matzorkis said he only found the strength to escape the trailer when he realised Bindon was going to pull one of his eyes out. Let's not let being fans of the band obscure our view of what was a disgraceful act of violence. And an act of stupidity taking Bindon on tour in the first place. Even Cole thought it was a bad idea.
  13. And Barry Dennen will always be 'Pontius Pilate'.
  14. Don't watch if you're squeamish.
  15. It's Friday night! Chook is on the barbie and the outside fire is ready for after dinner.
  16. JTM

    Thanks England

    Cruel but funny, but with a name like G Unit who wouldn't want to chuck something at them.
  17. Every Easter I dig up my vinyl of "Jesus Christ Superstar". Ian Gillan will always be 'Jesus' to me.
  18. I'm not sure the consequences are quite that drastic, but it is one of the most worrying modern trends for sure. Truth itself is at best under assault in an attempt to completely reshape it. And while in a sense it has always been so - never like it is now. At worse, we are losing something we cannot afford to lose and will pay a price unrealised and horrific if we continue. Yes. But this tendency is exercised mainly in direct communications. When you actually speak to someone in person where different views are held, humour is the most efficient tool to explore ideas and exchange views. Forums - not so much. Another modern times problem. We best not completely forgo actual socialising for internet banter.
  19. ^zoso.me has that. Thanks for that info, will be checking it out.
  20. Peter Grant heard someone smacked his 11 year old kid. He went bezerk like most protective hot headed Fathers from his generation would have. I’m not defending him, but I can see how something like this could snowball. There are varying versions out there of what happened, Bill Grahams version being the harshest.. The truth is probably in the middle somewhere.
  21. At the Oakland show they (Bonham partly, but mainly Bindon et al.) roughed up one of Bill Graham's workers. There was some bad blood before (that this guy may have played a part in) and while the situation got out of control due to the Zep side, it was hardly a horrific, brutal event. Page himself said later, that if it was really as bad as Graham claimed (who conveniently [and illegally] signed a waiver to get the band to play the second show), Zeppelin would never have been allowed to leave the country. The '77 tour was ugly in general, but this particular thing has been greatly exaggerated.
  22. Oh, I'm no stranger to that show--one of my favourites!! Can't wait to listen on its anniversary next week!
  23. Yes it does. And no, they didn't "almost murder" someone, that's just a ridiculous claim (not by you, I know you're replying to another post).
  24. I'll add that you just can't generalize any of this stuff. I have old SP pressings that sounds dull, the same albums pressed at Monarch that sound sparkling clear. Same with some modern records, U pressings sounding dull and flat yet Palace pressings of the same album crystal clear and dynamic. Just remember there's a different hands on with each pressing at each plant.
