  1. Posted from dupe thread) It's absolutely impossible to back mask words from words sung foward. Especially in 71. And even if they could it seems like they put some Crowley inspired quotes not stuff about where Satan keeps his lawnmower and hedgclippers...wait a minute, Robert does sing about a hedgrow. Maybe they ARE singing about Satan's toolshed. Cool! FYI If you find a first printing of Zep three they do credit him with backing harmonies and tambourine on a couple tracks. Satan rocks! Rock stars don't worship jack shit except the green and the pink. Just ask Gene Simmons. He'd worship Lieff Garret's taint if it meant he got more green or pink, otherwise forget it.

  3. Yeah but who are we to judge his infernal magestie's fashion sense? Besides it was the 70's and i'm sure he wouldn't be caught dead in it now. I don't know I thought the fat red head was kinda hot. I'm not sayin' I'd want Satan's sloppy seconds but...just sayin' . Actually it would be interesting to me to learn of the boys spiritual or religious leanings or lack therof. I doubt there is any info on that though because celebs rarely talk about that stuff.
  4. Hear him? You can fucking see him in the front row! He's just a little to the right of the center of the stage and you only see him in a few shots in the first 5 minutes of the song. He's wearing a black fedora, giant black pointed sunglasses and wearing what looks like a sequened t-shirt with a big pot leaf in the middle and standing next to a fat chick with red hair. In one scene you can see him banging his head and make the devil horns with his right hand but you need to do frame by frame to see this very clearly. Actually when i was in high school i could swear in one pard of Dazed on TSRTS during a second or so break in Jimmy's solo i could swear i hear what sounds like some audience members yelling "Satan" But maybe their yelling Jimmy or something. Anyone else notice this? I always wondered about lyrics like from the song Houses Of The Holy where it mentions Satan's daughter and Robert sings "let the music be your master, will you heed the master's call?" But singing about bunny rabitts or something doesn't make for very interesting lyrics. My guess is the boys aren't exactly church going god fearing christians but weren't sacrificing babies to Satan either. Besides, if you read any of the doctrins on satanism it's just a form of aitheism really.
  5. huh? So a nonbeliever I take it? Hey that's a cool pic of Peter Gabriel in your sig.
  6. Cool! It's all good. I guess the #%&*@ threw me. At least we have something "new' to talk about. Like everone is saying it's pretty freaking cool intentional or not.
  7. Thanks! If you talk to him could you also ask him if that rumor about Satan being the 'fifth' member of the band is true and if he really does sing backround on "Hey Hey..." Sorry I thought it was obvious that i was joking about getting Jimmy on the "horn" Guess not.
  8. It might be a bow scraping but with some studio effects and the speed changed but it still might have been modified to sound like a panting dog intentionaly. I think the chance of this intro being used on a song called Black Dog out of all their other songs is too much to call coincidence. It's posssible but the coincidence theory seems more of stretch of the imagination than it being intentional to me. I know they say that they named the song after a stray dog that was wondering around the area while they were recording but I don't know if I believe that. Its also possible Jimmy was experimenting making noises with his guitar and noticed that it sounded like a panting dog and so used it for the intro and decided to call the song Black Dog. It is the only song title on that album that has nothing to do with the lyrics or music of the song. I think like I said that it's more likely intentional but i still wouldn't bet money on it. Can someone get Jimmy on the horn to clear this up?
  9. Serious? Does it say anything about a harpsichord in the album notes/credits? It is a really creepy intro though.
  10. I can't believe i've heard this song probably a thousand times since bought Zep 4 like 30 years ago and i always just though it was a cool little throw away scraping guitar sound that Jimmy came up with to start the song but now I hear a panting dog. This would make sense obviously with the title of the song but also the outright horniness of Plant's lyrics. The supposed backward masking on Stairway is stupid bulshit but I think this is probably page aproximating the sound of a panting dog as best he can with a guitar. Has anyone heard this mentioned before? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdlg3Q0NzJo So yah or nay?
