  1. I've often thought about this but basically this is a great catchy song that was mysteriously left of the album even though it's the title track. A song like The Crunge made it onto the album, which I consider to be one of their weaker efforts. They also never played it live or not to my knowledge anyway, which makes you think they may not think highly of it. But then it has featured on every 'best of' that has been released. So a song that was left off of it's original album and never played live, but ends up on all the best ofs? Any thoughts?
  2. To be honest although I've enjoyed these releases I wish Jimmy had released a nice box set of all the original studio albums in nice lp replica sleeves and included just two discs of bonus material. I feel that what was released as companion discs could easily be refined to just two discs. A lot of the alternative tracks just sounded too similar to the originals. So here is my two disc 'best of' the the companion discs: 1. Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix with vocal) 2. La La 3. Bathroom sound 4. Jennings farm blues 5. Keys to the highway/ trouble in mind 6. The Battle Of Evermore ( mandolin guitar mix) 7. Going To California (mandolin guitar mix) 8. The song remains the same (guitar overdub reference mix) 9. No Quarter (Rough mix with jpj keyboard overdubs - no vocal 10. Sick Again (early version) 11. Everybody Makes it through the light (early version/in transit 1. ribs and all carrot pod pod 2. if it keeps on raining (rough mix) 3. Baby Come On Home 4. Sugar Mama 5. Poor Tome (intrumental Mix) 6. Hey Hey What Can I Do 7. Four Hands ( Bombay Orchestra) 8. Friends (Bombay Orchestra) 9. St Tristans Sword 10. Walters Walk (rough Mix)

  5. I've modelled mine on the 02 setlist but with a few changes and additions. Anything with a slash means they can alternate between songs on different nights. Good Times Bad Times/Communication Breakdown Black Dog Heartbreaker In My time of Dying For Your Life/The Rover/ Custard Pie/Houses of The holy Trampled Under Foot Nobody's Fault but Mine Going To California/That's The Way Bron-y-Aur Stomp No Quarter Since I've Been Loving You Dazed and Confused Stairway To Heaven Misty Mountain Hop Kashmir Encore 1 - Whole Lotta Love Rock and Roll Encore 2 - When The Levee Breaks Basically I've taken out Ramble On and The Song Remains The Same from the 02 setlist. I've added in Heartbreaker, a short acoustic set and and extra encore of When The Levee Breaks. Where they played For Your Life they could play Custard pie, The Rover or Houses Of the Holy on other nights and alternate between them.
  6. I wasn't alive in the 70s but I get the impression that Zeppelin somehow managed to be quietly massive in their homeland. They didn't get the media attention of other bands such as Stones, The Who etc but looking at album charts and concert attendances it's quite easy to see they had a very large following of fans in the UK that easily rivalled or even bettered other big bands of the time. Here's some British chart stats of their first four albums just to demonstrate how they compared to two other big bands of the time: Led Zeppelin - Chart Peak = 6 Weeks in chart = 79 Led Zeppelin II - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 138 Led Zeppeliin III - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 40 Led Zeppelin IV - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 77 The Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet - Chart Peak = 3 Weeks in chart = 12 Let It Bleed - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 29 Sticky Fingers - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 25 Exile In main Street - Chart Peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 16 The Who: Tommy - Chart Peak = 2 Weeks in chart = 9 Live At Leeds - Chart Peak = 3 Weeks in chart = 21 Who's Next - Chart peak = 1 Weeks in chart = 13 Quadrophenia - Chart Peak = 2 Weeks in chart = 13 http://www.officialc...led%20zeppelin/ Having said all that they probably are bigger in America. Their sales rival Beatles and Elvis in the States.

  8. Kashmir - A true all time rock classic - 10/10 In My Time Of Dying - One of my favourite riffs, heavy as hell - 10/10 How Many More Times - Another tremendous riff - 10/10 In The Light - Underrated classic from Physical graffiti - 9/10 Carouselambra - Another underrated gem - 8/10 Tea For One - Good song but outstays its welcome. Also running out of ideas rewriting Since I've Been Loving You - 7/10 Achilles Last Stand - Goes on for too long. Never quite understood the love this song gets - 6/10
  9. I'd agree with that. Iommi's tone was very thick and sludgy which gave Sabbath their heavy sound. With Zep if you listen to a song like Misty Mountain Hop you can see that a lot of Zep's heaviness came from Bonham's drumming. When the song starts the keyboard riff is quite light, then Page's guitar comes in which gives it some hard rock kick, but then Bonham comes crashing in and the whole thing becomes lot heavier and more powerful. Without Bonham that song would have sounded a lot lighter.
  10. 60s - The Beatles 70s - (Can't really decide as I like most of the big bands from this decade.) 80s - Guns N Roses 90s - Nirvana or Oasis 00s - The Strokes or Coldplay
  11. Status Quo Faces Humble Pie C'mon Everybody
  12. Thanks for posting. Strange how Jimmy refused to do a solo, seems like he's lacking confidence or something.
  13. I'll give each song a little rating because some of them I really like even though they may be my least favorite on the album. Led Zeppelin I - Your Time Is Gonna Come - 4/5 Led Zeppelin II - The Lemon Song - 4/5 Led Zeppelin III - Out On The Tiles - 4/5 Led Zeppelin IV - Four Sticks - 5/5 Houses Of the Holy - The Crunge - 2/5 Physical Graffiti - Sick Again - 3/5 Presence - Candy Store Rock - 3/5 In Through The Outdoor - Fool In The Rain - 3/5 Coda - Walter's Walk - 1/5

  15. My 3 favourite bands. The Holy Trinity of rock music - no one else really comes close in my opinion. Quite silly that a show with 'Rock n Roll' in the title didn't have The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band of All Time in the final 3. But hey, it was just a bit of fun I suppose and Zeppelin won!
  16. Well...yes that was a one off exceptional event. I'm just saying in general one rarely sees much Zeppelin footage/discussion broadcast on mainstream television. Last night we had a two hour live programme with people discussing each member of the band then followed by a whole hour of Zeppelin concert footage.
  17. Nominated for each category : -Band: Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, The Rolling stones, The Clash, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Joy Division, Nirvana, Radiohead,The Smiths -Singer: Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury, Kurt Cobain, Bono, Jarvis Cocker, Debbie Harry, Mick Jagger, John Lydon, Morrisey, Iggy Pop -Guitarist: Jimmy Page, Jimi hendrix, Slash, Jeff Beck, Matt Bellamy, Eric Clapton, Graham Coxon, Johnny Marr, Pete Townshend, Jack White -Drummer: John Bonham, Keith Moon, Dave Grohl, Ginger Baker, Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland, Mitch Mitchell, Ringo Star, Lars Ulrich, Charlie Watts -Bassist: John Paul Jones, Flea, John Entwistle, Peter Hook, Alex James, Lemmy, Mani, Paul McCartney, Paul Simonon, Tina Weymouth Reaching top 3: -Band: Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles -Singer: Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury ; Kurt Cobain -Guitarist: Jimmy Page, Slash, Jimi Hendrix -Drummer: John Bonham, Keith Moon, Dave Grohl -Bassist: They didn't bother with a top three for bassists and just took the result directly from the initial internet vote: Flea was the overall winner. Winning: -Band: Led Zeppelin -Singer: Freddie Mercury -Guitarist: Jimi Hendrix -Drummer: John Bonham -Bassist: Flea Really surprised that Zeppelin won overall band, usually with these phone-in type shows the more mainstream bands like Queen and The Beatles win. Al Murray did make a wonderfully passionate case for them though. I agree Marc Ronson was rather useless in his speech for Jimmy Page, incredibly dull delivery and just banged on about how he was able to get laid whilst playing stairway. Good fun show though, Boot Led Zeppelin were great fun and I think their performance of Whole Lotta Love successfully managed to show up the blandness of Sgt Peppers that followed it. Also rather nice to have an hour of Led Zep concert footage after the show. Never seen so much Zep exposure on TV!
  18. Yep! The John Bonham bit is up on youtube now -
  19. First two episodes were disappointing in terms of Zep content, they didn't have anything on Robert plant and Jimmy Page. This weeks episode though had a really great section on John Bonham and some good stuff about Jason Bonham too. Worth checking out on iplayer for those who can access it.
  20. New series starting tonight on BBC 2 at 21:40. It's a programme that focuses on each role of a rock band and tonight it's about the lead singer, next week the guitarist, then the drummer etc, etc. You also get to vote for who you think is the greatest HERE . Then they'll collect the results and announce the ultimate fantasy rock band. Robert Plant is included in the list so get voting! Hopefully Jimmy, Bonzo and Jonesy will also be included in the coming episodes. What is the DNA of a great rock 'n' roll band? The series breaks this mythical beast down into its constituent parts: singer, guitarist, drummer as well as the shadowy 'other one', whose face we don't quite know but without whom the magic wouldn't happen. The evidence is examined closely in forensic studies of what makes these rock 'n' roll types tick, starting with the lead singer. Often he's the leader, sometimes the dictator, benign or otherwise. His voice is his instrument and out front there's nowhere to hide. He hires. He fires. And when it all goes wrong and the backlash begins, he will get the blame. An eye-opening romp through great war stories from the rock 'n' roll frontline explores the myriad ways of tackling the daunting role of front person. From the seemingly fearless, like taboo-shattering Jim Morrison of The Doors, to the mesmerically fragile, like Joy Division's ill-starred Ian Curtis. From Mick Jagger, who drew up the blueprint of front man as athlete, lothario and chairman of the board to the swaggeringly cantankerous yet strangely static force of nature that is Liam Gallagher. A starry cast list, including Iggy Pop, Roger Daltrey and Dave Grohl, considers how and why they do what they do on and off stage. Sting speculates where necessary confidence ends and arrogance begins, while Muse's Matt Bellamy wonders whether a tendency towards the diva-ish is an inevitable by-product of the pressures of being the band's focal point. Shaun Ryder of Happy Mondays recalls harsh lessons learnt from underestimating the tabloids, and Siouxsie Sioux revels in the moments when it all goes right.
  21. Amazon link Just stumbled across this over on amazon. Seems rather pricey at the moment but I might have to get it anyway as it's one of my all time favourite albums. Hopefully it's a big improvement over the current CD version. Just thought other Pie/Marriott fans out there might want to check it out.
  22. I've never really understood what the Lib Dems stand for so I doubt i will be voting for them. Nick clegg seems like a bit of a tory at times yet a lot of the other party members are very leftist. They are probably too pro-Europe as well for me. I generally don't agree with any of Labour's political views and they have left the country in a complete mess. Again. My political views are naturally more right leaning so I will probably vote Conservative. I know a lot of people are finding it hard to believe in and trust Cameron and Osborne but i'm willing to give them a chance. There is good experience with the likes of William Hague and Ken Clarke (He brought us out of the last recession and handed over a decent economy to labour in 1997) in the shadow cabinet and I'm much more willing to trust them than any of the Labour bunch.
  23. Good news folks, Ladies and Gentlemen...The Rolling stones is set to be released on DVD later this year. The new documentary Stones in Exile will also be released on DVD so you won't have to fork out for that expensive Exile On Main Street set if you don't want to. Source The Rolling Stones are to release not one but TWO new DVDs this year through Eagle Rock, it has been announced. The first of the releases Stones In Exile is the story of the making of the classic album Exile On Main Street. This title is due to be released in June with substantial bonus material and follows the reissue of the album at the same time. The second of the releases is "Ladies And Gentlemen...The Rolling Stones", the legendary Rolling Stones concert film from 1972. Fully restored from the original film, it will be released nationally in cinemas and then receive its first ever authorised DVD release. The title will also be released in high definition on Blu-ray in the Autumn of 2010. Geoff Kempin of Eagle Rock commented, “We are delighted to add a band of such unparalleled calibre as the Rolling Stones to our catalogue and are delighted to be bring our customers a pair of such important and high quality titles.” Stay tuned for more info about the DVDs in the coming months.
  24. It depends whether the bonus tracks are any good really before I decide to purchase. I'm also especially interested in whether Ladies and Gentlemen..The Rolling Stones is included in its entirety or whether it's just a few clips. I have noticed that online retailers such as amazon, play.com and hmv.com all list the bonus DVD as containing Stones in Exile, Cocksucker blues and Ladies and Gentlemen...The Rolling Stones. Would be great to have that concert footage finally released on DVD. They should give the option to buy the DVD separately though as the super deluxe edition seems rather pricey at £100!
