  1. I'd like to know if anyone knows if Zeppelin had planned to multi-track any of the cancelled '75 or '77 shows.
  2. On of the Best Concert openers ever, from ELP. In Quad at the arena. 🤪
  3. 74F this evening. Cooler weather on the way tomorrow.
  4. LZ II was the first LZ album I owned or listened to. I was there in 1969, as a 14 year old that had never heard ANYTHING like that before!! I experienced it for the first time, and for many times after that, listening with a pair of the big over-the-ear Koss headphones, that gave me everything that Garrard turntable could squeeze out of, that Robert Ludwig mastered LP. 😛
  5. I happened to be listening to the Classical station WRR as I drove home from my first shift job. At the top of the hour they gave a brief summary of new highlights. And they did indeed announce that the drummer for the rock group Led Zeppelin had died. I remember the sense of darkness I felt that night, as sat sulking in my apartment living room. The grey Led Zeppelin inflatable blimp that I had hanging from the ceiling was later spray painted black. I wanted to listen to the local rock radio coverage that night, but the dweebs that worked there were only good for reading the intros and outros for the songs that the Programming Director had selected for them on a daily basis. They were incapable of deep though or reflection, nor would the radio station powers that be, have allowed them to divert from the station's format of songs and advertisements only. Such was the state of corporate rock radio in Dallas in 1980.
  6. Next Year... in Zeppelin Land.
  7. Levi Cowan does incredible videos about Hurricanes on his Tropical Tidbits YouTube Channel. Please Check him out:
  8. I never knew that Robert was a big alcohol drinker. I still don't think that he was. He's not your average heathen. Yes, most average heathens, if they know anything, it's alcohol in copious amounts, first and foremost. Their fans too. But for me, and I guess Robert too, it was never about the alcohol. Actually, most people are drunks first, and just look for music to go with their drunkary. For me, it was music first, and, then later I looked for stuff that would best accentuate the music. Wasn't alcohol. But, I know that stereotypes are easy to come by.
  9. Only his hairdresser knows for sure !!
