  1. In Minneapolis KQRS was our classic rock station, and they do play Led Zeppelin, but gone are the days when you could easily tune in and hear The Beatles, The Stones, Traffic, Cream or Hendrix. They insistently play Guns and Roses and AC/DC and a lot of the bands that, much to Robert Plants embarrassment, were influenced by Zeppelin but missed the point.
  2. Back in the late sixties - early seventies it was in vogue for male rock stars to wear feminine clothing ..... look at Keith Richards, David Bowie and others from the time. I think it looked better than what Plant wore at the O2 concert...I think that was rather, not in bad taste but, tasteless. It makes me long for the good old days when Roosters looked like Roosters instead of plain Janes. As for the sock, they got that look by wearing tight pants and no underwear.
  3. I think the Stones usually shot themselves in the foot when it came to reissues on cd and lp. Although not perfect, the Sticky Fingers Deluxe set was the first set they ever got right.

  5. "If you're going to kick authority in the teeth, you might as well use two feet." Keith Richards
  6. The Who's "My Generation" I thought they were saying "Don't you knock my generation". I also thought they said; "They say cool is awful cold" and to this day I think that would fit better with bitching about old people because they do seem to think cool is awful cold. Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" All I ask for all I pray, Skinny little woman gonna come my way. Clean up a woman come and hold my hand Tell me no lies, maybe you'll help me mend Steppenwolf's "The Pusher" Still sounds more like "And I'd kill him with my Bible then I'd raise the rent" more than it sounds like "I'd kill him with my Bible and my razor and my gun"
  7. The Stones are my all time favorite band, but in regards to the integrity of their later years, I have an idea for a cartoon much like the cartoons you see in the paper about politicians. Mick and Keith would be sitting around a camp fire like Billy and Wyatt at the end of the movie Easy Rider..... Keith says; "We did it man, we're rich." Mick says; "You know, Keith. We blew it." Keith says; "What do you mean?" Mick says: "We had it and we blew it."
  8. I probably hate rap as much as Keith, if not more, and so when making music I don't want to go anywhere near it. And if I hear something that reminds me of rap, it probably got to close to it.
  9. You can't trash rap enough, but Keith seems to be getting too close to it as when I was listening to Crosseyed Heart I started think about rap because Keith seemed too close to talking instead of singing.

    Pet Peeves

    How about drivers who are quick to blow their horn. Do they practice speed blowing? I can't even find my horn that fast. Maybe they drive with one hand on the wheel and one hand on the horn....keeping their horn covered at all times.
  12. "Live With Me" is the first thing that comes to mind. It's a great rock 'n' roll riff. Didn't Keith Play bass on "Sympathy For The Devil"? I heard some bootlegs where he played bass on "Sympathy" on the '75 tour but it sounded a little over the top.
  13. When comparing the legit Brussels Affair with the bootleg, the biggest disappointment is "Angie" because I always thought the version that was on the boot was the ultimate live version of the song. I remember reading, when Love You Live came out, Mick Jagger saying that he actually considered putting a version with Mick Taylor on from '73 on the album. I always wondered if that was the version. What I like about the '75 From The Vault is that the DVD and CD are two different shows so we get two in one and the Cd is the same concert I had on bootleg, but much better quality. The boot sounded like the guy recording it went to the bathroom during "Midnight Rambler" because the sound fades away and then comes back. If you haven't, pick up the Sticky Fingers Super Deluxe and the Marquee Club '71 From The Vault. Bob Clearmountains sound mix is great and you finally get "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Live With Me" on Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out. Clearmountaiin is so good, I wish they would have had him mix the original albums for the Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street, Some Girls, and even Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out Deluxe sets. They could include the original mixes but he's so good I wouldn't complain too much if they just used his.
  14. I think Brian Jones out shines Ron Wood also, especially on slide. I once got into a conversation on this site as to who really played slide on all those slide parts on Let It Bleed. I always thought it was really Ry Cooder but this other guy insisted it was Keith. Well, if it was Keith then he is one hell of a great slide player and I would the find it hard to understand why the Stones don't use his slide playing more instead of Ron Wood. As for the Stones in concert these days....I'm tired of the same old formula as to the song selection and the song order. They need to come up with some other songs for the openers and a tighter closer... I'm sick of hearing "Brown Sugar", "Jumpin'Jack Flash", "Satisfaction", or "Sympathy For The Devil" just go on and on. And yes, Keith isn't what he used to be, but there's nothing Ron Wood can do to help the situation. The more I get annoyed with the Stones present day situation the more I get annoyed with Woody. I hope there will be a Goats Head Soap Deluxe set. I see there is a Bootleg version out there. I've enjoyed the Stones a lot more in the last year, but that's just because of the stuff coming out of the vaults.
  15. Mick Taylor. I didn't go see the Stones this last time around. I decided to use that money to buy the Amazon exclusive of The Brussels Affair. As for Ron Wood, I don't think the guy can even play some of the simplest things that Taylor did. Two examples: 1. The main riff to "Bitch" (Wood just lets the horns do it), 2. The rhythm guitar riff on the Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! version of "Sympathy For The Devil". Taylor kicks ass, Wood just tickles it!
  16. I didn’t say anyone tried to deceive anyone. I just stated that it was different performances…..buyer beware. My guess is The Stones and those involved with their reissues don’t always know what exactly was issued in the past. That’s a guess. Until the From The Vault releases over the past year and the recent Sticky Fingers deluxe and Super Deluxe sets, the Stones reissues have had disappointing moments. When I heard the extra tracks from the Exile On Main Street and Some Girls Deluxe sets I dreaded the coming of a Sticky Fingers Deluxe set, but maybe the Stones learned something from those two earlier sets as the Sticky Fingers set has been as joy. As for old news, we are talking about the Stones. I don’t think we would be doing that so much without their past. As for the art of deception I just bought that Rolling Stone Magazine special on Keith. In it Buddy Guy talks about Keith giving him his Gibson. I may be mistaken but I think that guitar in Shine A Light was a similar guitar with the intent of fooling us into thinking it was Keith’s Gibson.
  17. I recently bought the Amazon exclusive of The Brussels Affair. The CDs were just thrown in the LP cover with no special holder. I caught them just in time before they went on the floor. Also, it is my understanding that this was recorded from two shows. This would explain why some of the songs are not the same performances that we have been listening to on our old bootlegs that were from the King Biscuit Flower Hour. For example on my bootleg,... Mick introduces (Heartbreaker) by saying “this one’s called Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo" while Keith has already started the intro……meanwhile on the legit (non-bootleg) version, Mick introduces it before the band starts playing. And “Angie” is also different because where Mick sings “Let me whisper in your ear Angie, Angie where will it lead us from here” he sings “where will it lead us from here” in a different language. Also, I’d say Taylor’s guitar solo isn’t quite as good on the legit version of "Angie". So hang on to your boots!

  19. I have no big complaints about the album. But if I were Led Zeppelin I would have switched the titles of the album and the first song. So I would have called the album In The Evening and the song "In Though The Out Door". In The Evening would be fitting for the cover photos and "In Though The Out Door" would be fitting with the words of the song. Also the first words of the first song would be saying the albums' title, adding a little eeriness to the situation.
  20. I recently heard and interview on the radio with Alice Cooper. He said The Yardbirds were a better band than Led Zeppelin.
  21. I got the 2 cd deluxe. The bad news is, you don't get the original picture that was on the back of the cover-------they just give you a duplicate of the front. After noticing this, I checked my other double cd sets and they did the same thing with the second and fourth albums. The good news is, the material on the companion disc is well worth having as is the case with the other four sets. With these Led Zeppelin sets it is the first time I've been pleased with all extras in a deluxe set. The Rolling Stones Deluxe sets of Exile On Main Street and Some Girls were the biggest disappointments to date.
