  1. I think that CODA has the potential to contain probably the most interesting out takes etc out of all of the albums.
  2. The new album is good, I like it better than the other two. I hear a lot of influences.
  3. It truly was an awesome release...the Holy Grail at that time. Time for a Blu-Ray or is that being greedy bearing in mind what we've had this year already?
  4. For me they are the greatest American Rock Band. I was 12 when John Bonham died, I was just discovering rock music at that time. AC/DC were the first band I loved and were the gateway into the wonderful world of music from there. As it was 1980 of course Back in Black was the album of the day at that time so was a good place to start!!! I first heard Eruption at 12 and thought what the f**k is that? Blew my mind. Saw them at Donington 1984 just after my 16th birthday, whilst they were internally falling apart that show blew me away. They've neglected Europe for so long now thoug
  5. Van Halen Queen Extreme Rolling Stones Cream/Clapton Aerosmith Soundgarden Pearl Jam Thin Lizzy Pink Floyd RHCP AC/DC ZZ Top Audioslave BB King The Beatles Deep Purple Free Guns N Roses Janes Addiction Jeff Buckley Jimi Hendrix Joe Bonamassa and so on and so on......
  6. Great album...loved it at the time and still love it. I saw them on the tour for this album at Wembley Arena 23rd December (I think). I know it was right before Christmas. They had Neal Schon and Brian May out for the encores. Great show. I met them afterwards and mentioned to Gary that the lyrics had quite a profound effect on me at that time, especially the "3rd side". He was extremely (pardon the pun) gracious. I pushed him on what exactly it was about and he basically said its anything you want it to be. Apologies if that sounds like name dropping I didn't mean it to. Being
  7. He has to sing LZ on his "solo" shows, for the simple fact that it's what people want to here and whatever is thought that can't be denied. However much RP has moved on from LZ the simple fact is that if he didn't sing them people wouldn't turn up. As a performer that ego doesn't stroke itself!!! I applaud him and respect him in a lot of ways for moving on and I'm sure if I hadn't seen them in December 2007 I'd probably feel like a lot of people in that they should carry on but perhaps that was the best way to go out. A show for a dear lost friend, to correct the wrongs of previous reunion
  8. Hi all, I have a question which I'm not sure if there's a definitive answer to or if it's been mentioned before but I'll apologise in advance if it has. My question is does anybody know the exact date of the first rehearsal of the four guys playing together? The famed Train kept a Rolling rehearsal? I've heard mid August 1968 but not an exact date? Anybody know any more? Many thanks for the answer...much appreciated.
  9. Thanks very much...I'll dig out my TBL issues. I'll also read the Mick Wall book again just in case.... Purely from a selfish point my interest was that my actual birthday was 15th August 1968, thought it may be too good to be true!!!

  11. "Nothing will ever diminish for me the memories of the manner in which I received my signed copy (#664) of the original. For those who already own an original, this edition provides a more practical format for continued reading in the years ahead. For everyone else, it provides an affordable alternative to the original. " Thanks Steve, you put that far more eloquently than I could have. I love my original but I'll definitely get another.
  12. You are quite right, there aren't bad LZ songs, just some get played more than others. The great thing about the catalogue is there seems to be something that fits all moods, emotions etc...truly fantastic.
  13. My Top 10 (in no particular order)...today. When the Levee Breaks Achilles Last Stand Since I've Been Loving You Kashmir Ramble On Whole Lotta Love Stairway to Heaven In My Time of Dying For Your Life In the Evening These will change tomorrow!!
  14. I think I'm in the minority of one here but I'm hoping that there isn't toomuch live stuff on these releases and here's my reasoning: 1. I'm really intrigued as to how the actual official album remasters will sound. I'm hoping they are a leap on from the 1990 remasters stuff which for me are the best sonically at the moment. I know they aren't to everyone's taste but they are still the CD's I turn to when I need the official LZ Studio itch scratched. I have the SHM CD box set among others but for my ears it's just another example of the "loudness wars" that so many releases seem to
