    Serial Killers...

    Manson family murder home listed for $1.98 Million https://ultimateclassicrock.com/charles-manson-family-murder-house/
  3. Today
  4. Yup me too, i remember there was a time for me in the 80s after reading robert plant interviews, where i was immediately going to record stores and buying huusker du and willie dixon at the same time. Even when he touched upon subjects in the news he was always very centered and smart in responses. I actually would think that someone of his intellect would be very interested in exploring the knowledge of podcasts for education.
  5. Absolute corker. Boston and Providence are the best consecutive gigs of the 1973 U.S. tour. I always felt like the first leg was still under development. Jimmy hadn't quite developed the solos in "Celebration Day" and "No Quarter" to their full potential.
  6. I agree with the above, that john paul jones should have been included with the "unledded" period of post zep music. He would have brought some thunder to those records. But i guess thats something robert plant wanted to avoid...the power of zeppelin, yet he knew michael lee was important.
  7. Yesterday
  8. The movie is great and will see it again. Either I'll get the dvd or see if available on Netflix or Prime. I wasn't in Cape Canaveral for the launch but about five miles away on Cocoa Beach. So amazing and glad I got to experience this. Something I'll never forget. I probably got to see this for a couple of minutes before it disappeared high into the atmosphere. The thrust on the Saturn V was amazing and quite intense.
  9. My mind could be changed but at the moment I have no desire to see this film. The plot seems weak and we've already had a Tarantino film with Brad Pitt. This stinks like a cash grab to me.
  10. …"to make it better for all"... THAT'S where you're wrong! We have tens of millions of people with no fucking skin in the game, never worked an honest day in their life, or better yet are there illegally and the socialist utopian liberals like yourself start pontificating about how the system is broken and must be made better "for all". Paralyzed by the fear of everything? I don't fear anything. I'm all set. I saw the writing on the wall when some shit for brains community organizer who had been a Senator for 15 minutes got elected in 2008. I cashed out and got as fucking far away from that nearly ten year dumpster fire as I could get. Don't get me started on China. They ain't half as strong as you seem to think they are, and the Trump tariffs are crushing their economy. I see things the way things are, you cling to the way things ought to be.
  11. They did NOT play Berkeley on 6/24/72. They played TWO shows in Berkeley in September 1971, this being just eight months later Peter Grant may have elected not to play a Bay Area show to focus on the other major California markets instead. As a by the way, they were staying at the Continental Hyatt House on the Sunset Strip on 6/24/72. Jim Marshall photographed them walking around outside the hotel on that date, further proof they did not play a Bay Area show.
  12. Wow - so no reform is EVER to be entertained. America must be perfect! Anyone wanting to advance or change the US to make it better for all is to be feared and confronted with firearms. Some regulation of Wall Street and giant banks, the health system, taxation, college education and it's funding/availability, the investing in the scientific community and R&D, the wealth gap and the issues with having all of a nations wealth flow into a few hands, crime and social problems and changes needed - all not necessary. The very idea to be met with armed resistance. Or is it just the words I chose? Too slogan like (which is fair enough). I really don't understand that extreme position against simple reforms that are desperately needed there. The US system is BROKEN. Unless you are of the view that lobby groups with billions to give to Washington for vested interests is a great way to get good government for the people. You seem to be paralysed by the fear of everything. Especially change - no matter what that change means. Meanwhile, while the US buckles under it's own weight of inefficiency, corruption, and partisan tribal crap, China rises and spreads it tentacles out into the developing world. You fear what could be. I hope for what could be.
  13. I get most of my books on ebay now. I find used HARDCOVER books for really reasonable prices--- sometimes just a few bucks and with free shipping. "Homeless" is a bad term to use for drug addicts and crazy people. Until we start addressing the problem and stop encouraging people to just camp out on the streets in our California cities, it will only get worse. Funny how there aren't the same problems in Bismark North Dakotoa. LA, Portland, Seattle, and SF need to "call in the scoops".
  14. ^^^THIS! Bernie Sanders is always comparing the healthcare systems in places like Norway to ours here in America and claiming we should have could have the same result. Difference of course is that places like Norway, Switzerland, Japan... and yes, even much of Canada doesn't have millions and millions of people sitting around, not working, into crime, and having a bunch of children they can't care for. All that "medicare for all" would do in America is make all healthcare lousy for everyone; why penalize people who already have their shit together in favor of people who are the cause of their own problems.... including illegal aliens? How unfair to all of the Americans who worked hard their whole live, retired, are now eligible for medicare---and they now have to wait inline for care with illegal aliens!
  15. The Russians almost beat us to the moon. https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2019/07/19/soviets-tried-beat-apollo-they-crashed-spacecraft-moon-instead/
  16. Can’t help but I have wondered the same thing. I’m guessing they never played the show. Sadly they did play San Diego 6/23 but there isn’t a recording of that show.
  17. What is the deal with June 24, 1972? I have always assumed there were no San Francisco area dates on the 1972 tour...however illogical that sounds considering how popular Led Zeppelin was in the Bay Area. No official 1972 U.S. tour information I have seen lists a June 24 date. It is always: June 22: San Bernadino June 23: San Diego June 25: Inglewood June 27: Long Beach June 28: Tuscon The official concert timeline on this forum does not list a Berkeley date for June 24. But Dave Lewis lists June 24, 1972 Berkeley in his Concert File book and just recently I noticed Wikipedia (yes, not the best source for factual information) listed June 24 Berkeley on their 1972 U.S. Tour page. What gives? Berkeley September 14, 1971 is one of the great bootlegs of all-time. Certainly, if Led Zeppelin had played Berkeley in 1972 there would be audio evidence of such a show. Instead, nada. So why do Dave Lewis and Wikipedia persist in claiming there was a June 24 Berkeley date on the 1972 tour?
  18. Looks like he's been banned as his original post has disappeared. He's probably off smoking crack with Kyrie Irving. These idiots infest the comment sections on every NASA video on YouTube. Insanity.
  19. I took my nephew to see the Apollo 11 IMAX movie earlier this year when it was first released. I'll take him again this week when he gets out of summer camp. You lucky dog. I would have loved to experience the sight and sound of that Saturn V rocket launch in person. What a beautiful machine.
  20. Best show of 1973 in my opinion, and the best of the short "No Quarter"'s...46 years ago today!
  21. I completely agree with you. $22 TRILLON deficit and they keep on overtaxing us while spending like drunken sailors. The truth is there are only two things that will stop the insanity: a nationwide taxpayer's revolt or nationwide taxpayer's armed revolt. I'm hoping a reparations bill does get enacted into law, because if that doesn't get a nationwide taxpayer's revolt started nothing will.
  22. Washington state did a petition drive to get rid of a huge tax that the bastards and bitches of Olympia just layed on us. I believe that someday there really will be an armed revolt and it won't involve just tossing tea into the bay.
  23. Small world! I lived in the UK for several years, and let me tell you things have changed. Specifically, in February 2018 the NHS imposed a 90 day minimum waiting period for non-emergency care on account of budget cut backs. Did you get that? 90 DAYS. You should never underestimate the societal advantages that come with having a smaller, homogenous population AND secure borders.

    Golf Talk

    Yeah it’s over unless something apocalyptic were to happen to Lowry. Congrats on the 73! Nice round.
  25. Just got in from my Monthly Medal. Shot 73 so quite happy. In better conditions than in NI. Lowry's to lose I think. Would love Tommy to do it as he is a (relatively) local lad. Nervous times. But I think it's Shanes
