  1. Past hour
  2. Here is a Led Zeppelin madness bracket I created to find out what the "best" led zeppelin song is, and I wanted to get some opinion from some big fans and not just people that vote for stairway blindly (if the embed code doesn't work please use the link) reply what song you picked, I did Ten Years Gone. I got 64 songs so it's kind of overwhelming. https://brackify.com/bracket/34172/Led-Zeppelin-Madness <div id="brackify-iframe-wrap" style="position:relative;"> <iframe style="position:absolute; width:1px; min-width:100%; height:100%;" id="brackify-iframe" height="2350" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="https://brackify.com/b/34172/Led-Zeppelin-Madness"></iframe> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> var eventMethod = window.addEventListener ?

  3. Today
  4. Wouldn´t it be nice if Steve concentrates on the relevant memories & facts, about the music, why they chose certain songs & why they omitted others, et cetera. Couldn´t care less wheter the Robinson brothers had a jolly good time or not, if Jimmy had been drinking like a madman or had snorted half of Colombia- does it really matter? I don´t think so. Maybe (hopefully) Steve begins with a truly honest statement: I am deeply sorry that Marc Ford wasn´t around when we worked with Jimmy, I missed him so sadly. !LOL!

  6. No band can indefinitely sustain greatness. Looking back, we can easily (and subjectively) say this tour was better than that tour...Jimmy was better Europe '73 than USA '77. Plant was awesome in '72 but lost his voice in '75. But without doubt, we all would have gladly plunked down our cash for any ticket we could find and loved every minute of it. I do prefer '75 and earlier, but I can still find enjoyment from many '77 shows and even '80 has a number of gems. I'll never turn down a chance to hear more live Zeppelin. Why? There is undeniable magic in Led Zeppelin. I have a handful of Page/Plant shows that I hardly ever listen to because it's just not the same. In contrast, the 02 reunion show, for me, DOES have that magic. I had the miraculous opportunity to see David Gilmour in 2015 at the first Royal Albert Hall show. I would have much rather seen him in 2006, with a better set list and stronger voice. But I won't regret a second of the show I did see. The '77 tour was over the top indeed. Cutting back the show to maybe 2.5 hours might have been wise, but...the boys wanted to deliver I guess. I agree that the '77 versions of No Quarter were too peppy/jazzy. And too long (30 minutes). It's a sinister song, and the moodiness of that was largely lost in '77, unfortunately. I don't think there's one bum version in '75. The 1973 versions were fine, too, but I like them a bit longer ('75). Dropping Moby Dick might have been wise, too. I disagree on SIBLY. For me, right up to Berlin, it's a great, authentic moment and I would even say the '77 versions are best. As for more tracks from Presence, not sure what to say. Aside from Achilles and Nobody's Fault, they must have felt they weren't suited for live performance.
  7. I think the point, the way I see it anyway, is that a friend wouldn’t put a story like that out there. Jason has the right to tell it, sure. But anyone in Page’s shoes would view it as a betrayal.
  8. A fine little girl she waits for me She's as plastic as she can be She paints her face with plastic goo And wrecks her hair with some shampoo Plastic people Oh, baby, now you're such a drag "i dunno... sometimes I just get tired Of ya honey--it's... ah.your Hair spray... or something..."
  9. How come the media never brings up the word 'Christophobia?'
  10. There was definitely some serious technical issues with this show, evident from the constant buzzing coming from the guitar signal. I'd like to hear an audience source for this.
  11. Could you do Surgical Stainless Steel? My sweat is like battery acid. I can't wear silver as it causes a terrible rash, maybe I'm a vampire lol.
  12. Finally, an interesting article on Led Zeppelin where the author's choices aren't meant to start a war in the comments sections. Sure we all have our own personal lists, but you can respect the choices. In other words, the author didn't choose the Highbrow options to put on airs nor did he go with the Radio Hits exclusively. Nice job mixing it up imho. https://ultimateclassicrock.com/best-led-zeppelin-songs/ My list would be I: Good Times (yeah, I'm easy to please sometimes) but It does vary from time to time with Your Time is Gonna Come as well as Babe I'm Gonna Leave You and honestly, the Covers as well. It's safe to say that if I were stuck on a deserted island with only one choice of album, this'd be it without hesitation. II: Ramble On III: Varies from Friends and Hats Off To Roy Harper IV: When The Levee Breaks Houses: The Ocean PG: Varies from In My Time of Dying and Sick Again Presence: Achilles or Nobody's Fault But Mine In Through The Out Door: Fool In The Rain or Hot Dog Coda: Poor Tom Yea, I am the worst at this because I cannot choose just one, lol. If I made a list 10 years ago it would be all different as it will be ten years from now. Actually saying that makes me want to add Ten Years gone to PG's list. Someone else asked on these forums for people's top ten, I screwed that up too and probably, if you compare these answers ot those you'll find inconsistencies again, lol, can't help it. And I'm sure there has to be another post here somewhere asking this very same question, but I didn't see it so maybe it's time for a refresher. What's your favorite on each album?
  13. I’ve always liked the Brussels show, esp the end of the concert the band seems to really come alive. HOWEVER It sounds to me, that after Trampled Underfoot, Jimmy doesn’t disengage his wah wah pedal all the way. Consequently, SIBLY & Achilles sounds super harsh and trebly. Do you hear that as well? Anyone else notice this ?
  14. Left Vegas..partly cloudy and 82 degrees....arrived Denver...cloudy and 36!
  15. Although HTWWW was the bands peak with regards to precision playing and singing......I never listen to that CD. I can listen to TSRTS over and over again and greatly enjoy every song. I admit that Jimmy played "Rock and Roll" and "Since I've Been Loving You" better and with great precision on HTWWW but the songs from New York are more enjoyable. Dazed and Confused; The Rain Song; and No Quarter are almost flawless from New York.
  16. "Baby Come on Home" - Led Zeppelin
  17. Aaaah, right. That's right, but he could still have a conversation with a mate about it. No right to tell maybe - but every right to ask/discuss if it's a mate.
  18. ^ Just listened to WS/BMS from the above show. Page seems to drop a bit of 'Swan Song' around the 7 min mark, pretty cool. He of course, would incorporate this into 'Midnight Moonlight' with the Firm.
  19. Last day of the glorious weather today. Then it's shit, shit and more shit. Could do with the rain to be fair. Our golf course is starting to look brown.
  20. You can buy a good quality reproduction of the shirt for $25 here. I already got mine ordered ! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-80s-VTG-Jimmy-Page-Led-Zeppelin-fear-of-god-band-tour-USA-SIZE-S-3XL/401644625747?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180816085401%26meid%3D8b215810d04c42af8d227831cd4ba3ea%26pid%3D100970%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D401644625747%26itm%3D401644625747&_trksid=p2481888.c100970.m5481&_trkparms=pageci%3Ab3ed2cfb-49ee-11e9-840a-74dbd1807cc2|parentrq%3A93c77c4a1690aad34784c31cffff3a46|iid%3A1
  21. Sorry, I was not clear. Jimmy can do whatever he wants, he has more than earned that right. My point is he has no right to tell another, or influence another not to tell their story.
  22. I applaud them, but wouldn’t pay, less cross the street to see them. Lol.
  23. That was a possibility and why I qualified my use of the term "you".
