  3. I saw this interview again recently and was struck by how reflective and thoughtful Robert was. Remarkable. What he said about Kashmir was quite special. Dan Rather asked him why Kashmir was his favorite song. He said: "It was a great achievement to take such a monstrously dramatic musical piece and find a lyric that was ambiguous enough, and a delivery which was not overpumped, just, it was almost like the antithesis of the music, this kind of lyric, and this vocal delivery that was just about enough to get in there."

    2019 NFL Thread

    My cable provider decided that a week before the NFL Draft would be a good time to drop the NFL Network from my cable package. Their marketing dept. decided that now would be a better time than the middle of May ? That's genius stuff right there ! I guess constant reruns of "Dr. Pimple Popper" and "My 600 lb. life" is a cheaper and bigger ratings draw. I got on their website and gave them the following input.... "So your company dropped the NFL Network because they raised the price on you ? I'll be sure to use the same criteria when I evaluate your cable package in the Fall."
  5. After hearing some details about the costs of repairs, I think someone should get a hold of the architects at Disney. They build mountains, castles, and forests out of plastic, rubber, & plaster in no time. Get a couple 3d printers....replace those gargoyles and statues with painted plastic....lighten the load on those new steel replacement beams. It's time to bring the entire religious spectacle up to date.
  6. Not quite the path to enlightenment I expected to read about. Was the deity named Prostate by chance ? Aleister & Oscar....now that would be Wilde.
  7. I think Led Zeppelin (along with Pink Floyd) helped finance Monty Python and the Holy Grail, one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I have also read that George Harrison helped finance the film. I also seem to recall Robert once doing a bit about a man who knows a man who knows a man who doesn't know "Tim", and Tim was a minor character in the Holy Grail. In 1977 Robert once said it was an opportunity to "play spot the looney". "Spot the Looney" was an old bit from the original Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series. He even said "spot the looney" in a rather Monty Python way.

    Nah, no it wasn't. City were nobodies until they became Qatar FC. Everything they have won last few seasons they've bought. They are so great they can't even sell out a home game, even their home ground, the rented Etihad Stadium is nicknamed the Emptyhad.

    I remember Utd being relegated (73/74 season?) but not Law's back heel. Anyway, I get it that many Utd fans would rather see them lose against City, anything to prevent Liverpool having any chance of winning the Prem, arch rivals and all that. [and] Yes Utd have been shit last few game or so, ever since Ollie got the managerial contract, baffling really since they were doing so well after JM got his contract terminated. Edit. Hang on, the old memory banks hadn't fired up. I can recall that now, wasn't Law heartbroken in scoring that goal against his old team, but were they already going down anyway..

    Well I never??? You have no chance of United even scoring against City. We have been pretty shit the last few weeks and the thought of the title going down the M62, United may as well play with 9 men. You're old enough to remember Denis Law's back heel that set United down in the 70's?

  12. Easter/Passover blessings. Here are some vintage photos to enjoy
  13. I think this video will give you a better idea what LP collectors seek.
  14. Robert and Jimmy enjoyed 'Dazed And Confused', but still declined the use of a Led Zeppelin song for the soundtrack. Page attended the premier of 'Godzilla' in May 1998 and contributed to the soundtrack.
  15. For me it's a toss up between some of the P&P performances and the Black Crowes featuring Jimmy Page. I will say the Crowes only because I feel it is a testament to what he could do with back up guitars behind him, though you really need to stick to a script in that format. Jimmy doesn't like sticking to a script and most of us don't want to hear him stick to one either. But I'd say Ten Years Gone, Custard Pie, Sick Again and In My Time of Dying are the best live performances of these songs. And as for Page & Plant, The Rain Song perfomance has no equal on this planet and of the other live shows, albeit mostly scripted as well, has video on youtube of the New Orleans' concert where Jimmy very much went off script and the best of that set definitely, probably the best version of Heartbreaker you'll ever hear. When you consider how many great performances of that song exist, that's saying something.
  16. They nail it very nicely in the HTWWW DAC. Seattle '75 has a good one too.
  17. I have some Led Zep magazines from the 90's if someone wants them. I can mail them to you if you reimburse me the postage. I can email some pictures, I just can't figure out how to put them on this forum. Thanks, Mike larkinmike@me.com 216 952-9525
  18. City should blow them out . That game earlier in the year when Manchester City rallied to beat Liverpool was fabulous.
  19. Agreed, can't understand why there isn't more of a buzz about this. An incredible show in quality I never thought was possible for a boot. The whole band are killing it here. This will be my 'go-to' '75 show for a long time to come.
  20. Lots of curves, you bet, even more, when you get.......
  21. Yesterday
  22. If you know any favorites of Jimmy, Robert, John, and Jonesy, please list them. I might read one of my Zeppelin books, and if I see something, I'll reply.
