  1. I was at that show, it was on a Friday. You're right, it was a great show, better than the Monday night show. The band was in a good mood and played very well and very long. They had Tuesday night off (I think) and played Wednesday and Thursday in Vancouver, B.C. I saw all the shows that week. They came back to Seattle to play a second show on Friday. I must have lost millions of brain cells as well as losing a portion of my hearing seeing all those shows that week. It's okay though, it was well worth it.
  2. I do remember hearing about a time after LiveAid 1985 that the three of them got together to rehearse somewhere and how Robert described JPJ as playing some "rollicking" keyboards and that it (the rehearsals) sounded "very promising". But I guess it wasn't to be.
  3. 1970 at a friends house. We were casually playing records, Beatles, Stones, Doors, etc. Then he put on Led Zeppelin II, Side 2, starting with Heartbreaker. We listened to the whole side of the record....over....and....over....and....over. I was never the same.
  4. "and may i ask what you did to upset him lol" I wouldn't move when he asked me to.
  5. Awesome! I still remember that show! I can almost hear Richard Cole yelling at me.
  6. I had heard Zeppelin being played a bit on the AM radio, but it wasn't until I was at a friends house in 1970 (I think) that I was able to hear complete albums by the band. He had an older brother who had all their albums. I remember hearing 'Ramble On' for the first time and I couldn't get it out of my head! It was magical! It was beautiful! It was heavy! I had to hear it again and again and again until my friend said, "You've heard it 14 times already man, I'm gonna wear the record out!" My dad passed away suddenly in 1970 and I can still remember those long winter nights going through all that grief. When the Immigrant Song came out, it sounded so magical, so soothing, it had those resolved Tritones, I would hear it late at night and I would cry myself to sleep.
  7. I've always thought that was intentional, but I could be wrong. I remember Page being interviewed prior to the relesase of Graffiti and he said the album would "hit people in the groin more". That particular spot on the recording cetrtainly does just that!
  8. The Rover @ 02:55 into the song A tritone or augmented fourth. A bad note from Page? Intentional? Who knows. I've always liked it.
  9. Speaking of Sabbath, When Tony Iommi married his first wife, who was his best man? John Bonham.
  10. Hello,

    Just thought I'd stop by and say hi.

  11. It was exciting watching him play his solo from behind the stage in 1977 until their road manager yelled at me and told me to move on.
  12. With all due respect to Bachman, the late Kurt Winter was an underrated guitarist who played and sung his way into the history of that band. His sound and style has never been duplicated to this day. His musicianship was one of a kind and is very, very missed. The planned follow up album to 'American Woman', 'The Way They Were' with Bachman (released from the vaults in 1976), can't begin to compare with the 1970 release 'Share The Land' with Winter. Kurt brought a pocketful of songs into that band from another group called Brother and they fit like a glove in The Guess Who. Unfortunately the band withdrew from its hippie roots in the mid-seventies and dismissed Winter in 1974. The band was never the same. Kurt Winter 1946 - 1997 R.I.P. We miss you.
  13. Jimmy Page Duane Allman Danny Weis Erik Brann Roy Buchanan Terry Kath Jimi Hendrix Tony Iommi Richie Blackmore Eric Clapton Jeff Beck Stevie Ray Vaughan Robin Trower All unique. For me, there is no order, only what mood I'm in.
  14. I saw him in Rainbow and Sabbath. He was a great singer and frontman. He will be missed.
  15. I saw Dio with Rainbow in the mid 70's, saw Dio with Sabbath in 80 and 82. Dio was a great singer and frontman. I still LOVE the 1980 Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell album. Live on stage with Sabbath, I initially had trouble with Dio performing the old Sabbath numbers, he sounded too gothic/classical, but I warmed up to him later on. He will be dearly missed.
  16. I was seated during this show and I don't recall a stabbing, but then we're talking about an event that happened 35 years ago. I saw so many different concerts in the 70's and I'm still amazed that my brain and hearing still work.
  17. I was there. They played very hard that night although Page was drunk. Robert mentioned Hendrix at one point when he said that they liked playing Seattle better than Vancouver. (I saw both shows in Vancouver as well) Robert promised a good show that night and a good show it was! The encore was longer than on Monday night (3/17/75). Highlights were: Trampled Underfoot, Kashmir, In My Time of Dying, Sick Again. (Actually I liked every track they played) Later on in the show I met some girl in the front row, we chatted and she gave me her coat and I don't know why, but with her looks I would have rather had her phone number. I would have given anything to see them play in Earl's Court. I guess that's what bootlegs are for.
  18. Hello hillsy, I saw Zeppelin: 72 in Seattle (1 show) 73 in Seattle and Vancouver (2 shows) 75 in Seattle and Vancouver (4 shows) (2 nights in Vancouver and 2 nights in Seattle) 77 in Seattle (1 show) My favorite shows: 72 in Seattle 75 in Seattle (2nd show Friday night)
  19. I was there at the '77 Seattle Kingdome concert. It obviously wasn't their best show, maybe that's because I saw them in 72, 73, and 75 and they were brilliant. My only highpoint was standing close to the stage behind John Bonham during his drum solo and getting yelled at by their road manager Richard Cole.
  20. If I remember correctly, that was the concert when Terry Knight showed up armed with cops and lawyers and confiscated all of the band's equipment. Nice guy.
  21. Alright, we have an OSMOND'S thread, so here's an ARCHIES thread. Did you like their music? Be honest. I still have some records saved (somewhere) that I cut out of the back of Post Alpha-Bits cereal boxes back in the 60's. Hmm...maybe they're worth money now. Nah, probably not.
  22. I remember one time Donny was being interviewed and he said that their music (Osmond Bros) rocked as hard as Led Zeppelin. I just about puked.
  23. Don Kirshner filmed them in 1972 on their 'Phoenix' tour. Craig Frost and Don Brewer did a jam in the middle of the show that absolutely rocked. It should have been included on the album. Mark Farner played drums along side Brewer. You can find it on YouTube. Not to be missed.
