  1. Yep... it sure does start with an H. Man Heroine is a motherf**ker!! What's weird is Jimmy's fashion sense was at its coolest with the white dragon suit and his aviator sunglasses, but man he looked like a skeleton. I truly believe that if Zeppelin didn't break up when it did, Page most certainly would've died. On another note, I really wish the Pontiac gig was filmed, hopefully it exists and will come out one day.
  2. I did some photoshop work on a couple of pics and made them into wallpapers if anyone likes them.
  3. I always thought this was page's coolest look. I wish some of this time period was captured on pro film.
  4. Let's be realistic though. I know Plant hates that whole glam image of Zeppelin with the excess and the private planes, but it was Plant who stood there, with his crotch in clear view, making flamboyant gestures and movements with his hands. Plant got the most camera time. It was always one of the drawbacks of the film. Don't get me wrong, the footage on a HD tv looks amazing, and jimmy page was the coolest thing to me. I'm 18 years old and when I first saw a Zeppelin video, it was STH live. I gave it a break and then saw SIBLY, and I just had to surrender and say "jimmy page, you have converted me into a led Zeppelin fanatic!" And that's why it holds a special place with me. But for you younger fans like me, (and older too) I don't know if I'm the only person, but I try to get my friends to dig Zeppelin and I show them clips, and they say "man that guy screams like a girl" or "is that dude gay or somthing." Of course we all know plant isn't, but it's that flamboyance and attitude that really personified the excessive lifestyle that would later escalate out of control. And I never understood why. Put in disc 1 the of zeppin live DVD, then watch TSRTS. I'm not even talking about soundwise, just the attitude of the band and of Plant was drastically different. The gritty soulful plant became the flamboyant rock god, and while they still sounded great, I wished he would have stayed like he was when he first started.

  6. sorry if I'm asking this in the wrong place, but when was the first time jimmy ever wore a costume on stage? The crowd must have been like "what the hell is he wearing"
  7. Yes but here's the major difference. "knock them off that pedastol" Instead of creating their own legacy and statement with fans, they say something stupid like this. Zeppelin wasn't worried about knocking the beatles off their pedastol, even though they were constantly compared to them. So I don't understand his whole statement.
  8. Yeah I know what you're saying, but honestly tell, do you think the quality of music has gotten better with the changing times, stayed the same, or have gotten worse? Me, I say that as a whole, it hasn't gotten better. What do you guys think.
  9. Here's my take on the situation. I am seventeen years old and I am absolutely in love with led zeppelin. I was always into music and music oriented, but Zeppelin totally changed my approach toward playing music and the way I listen to music as a whole. I live in the bronx on NYC, and while I can share this same enthusiasm and love of the music with you guys on the board, it's hard to do that, especially where I live. It also doesn't help with the modern music that very watered down and tailored for the sales of records rather than the love of music. I always wished that I lived in the sixties and seventies, to experience that atmosphere of the culture and music. I mean, it was so much fun to go to a concert back then, and you had such a variety of top notch musical talent. No matter how you put it, it's just not the same. So for those who argue about new and progressive music as a sign of the changing times, I beg to differ. I would say it has degressed as a whole, and the killers for one are not helping. It's not that people are stuck in the past. At the end of the day, everyone justwants some good quality music, and we ain't gettin that right now. So I disagree with his assesment on the minds of music fans and really fits as an archetype of the new wave of garbage rock and rap music that has been thrown at us for the last couple of years. Ever generation had their Beatles or Zeppelin or their Rush or nirvana, we're still waiting for something that young kids like myself can hold our hat on, but it hasn't yet, and it sure as he'll ain't the Killers.
  10. I'd have to say IMTOD, Black Dog, Dazed and Confused, and the most underrated and never not mentioned, Trampled Underfoot. The thing about Trampled Underfoot that gives me chills is the rawness and raspiness in Plants vocals. That is one song, along with IMTOD, that I wished they could have closely reproduced on stage. Just one time, I wish I could've heard Plant sing Trampled Underfoot onstage with that same vocal sound. It really is the most rawest Plant has sounded.
  11. Very in depth and well thought of. Truly one of the best ZEP songs. Its wierd, when I talk to Zep fans about this song and their favorite part, they never match mine. My favorite part of the song is right before the end, when the whole song goes into chaos and Robert sings that part "Oh I see him good. Come on!!! Take it, Take it, Take it, Take it, Take it, Whooh yes." I just keep rewinding my ipod like five times. That part is addictive and i love it. Anybody else feel the same.
