  4. Keith Richards knocks Led Zeppelin Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards knocked Led Zeppelin's recent reunion concert in London, in a new interview in Uncut magazine, according to AFP. He pretended that he was unaware that the band had reunited: "They had one? Well, well done Jimmy (Page) and Robert (Plant). F*** off. 'Stairway To Heaven' don't make it for me, baby... I know the fascination, but it ain't worth it, pal." The guitarist also took time to knock partner partner Mick Jagger in the same interview, calling him a "power freak". Richards, who is promoting the Rolling Stones' latest concert documentary Shine A Light, which is directed by Martin Scorsese, described the difference between him and Jagger, explaining, "Mick's a maniac. He can't get up in the morning without knowing immediately who he's going to call. Meanwhile, I just go 'Thank God I'm awake' and wait for three or four hours before I do anything. He is a power freak and there's nothing we can do about it. I don't want to do anything about it. Let him bugger about. It doesn't make any difference to what we do." Richards went on to joke about Jagger's legendary onstage antics, adding: "Excuse me while I laugh. He's a bit vain, let's put it like that. (But) we want a vain bloke up there, don't we? Meanwhile, the band can go to work. Vanity will not carry a band. But a band can carry vanity." He was asked what, if any, advice he would offer to his younger self: "I'd have said 'Lay off the dope.' That's my advice now to all younger members who are into this sort of thing -- oh, give it up, it ain't really worth it." Shine A Light was filmed and recorded on October 29th and November 1st, 2006 at New York City's Beacon Theatre. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival on February 7th, and the Stones are set to attend the UK premiere on April 2nd at London's Leicester Square. The soundtrack album to Shine A Light will be released on April 1st, in both single and double disc editions. Shine A Light will open in select U.S. theaters on April 4th.
  5. LOL, yeah. Next time they'll blame the fuckin Haiti earthquake on Led Zeppelin.....
  6. WTF! Could you believe this shit? 9/11 and Led Zeppelin: David Icke Forums :wacko:
  7. James Hetfield was recently asked how Metallica were going to compete with legends such as Led Zeppelin [Queen and Deep Purple]; all of whom have rocked the stage at Knebworth in the past. “To top them will be difficult but we’re going to try by breaking up onstage before I announce that I’m gay,” laughs Hetfield in a chat with the Sonisphere official festival guide. “Seriously, how do you top those bands? You don’t, you just go out and do your best at what you do. There are a lot of legends that have played at Knebworth and we are very honoured to be mentioned in the same sentence as any of them.” July 2009 of Metal Hammer- Future Publishing
  8. "In my opinion, next to the Beatles they're the most influential band in history. They influence the way music is on records, AOR radio, concerts. They set the standards for the AOR-radio format with 'Stairway to Heaven,' having AOR hits without necessarily having Top Forty hits. They're the ones who did the first real big arena concert shows, consistently selling out and playing stadiums without support. People can do as well as them, but nobody surpasses them." John David Kalodner, A&R executive Geffen Records "Other than the Beatles, for album radio they're the most important band. Nobody seems to get tired of them, and a lot of the new bands in that genre obviously owe a debt to them." Legendary Radio Producer Lee Abrams "Believe it or not, we are actually very, very big fans of Led Zeppelin. They're probably one of the strongest influences that we have in common as members of the group. We do 'Whole Lotta Love' jokingly, tongue in cheek, but that's not to say that we're not big fans of the band. And I think the main reason one could find it amusing in 1988 is that there are so many bands that have supposedly been influenced by Led Zeppelin that don't really seem to understand the soul of what Led Zeppelin were about. They just seem to have taken on the cosmetic appeal of the legacy that Led Zeppelin left around. And that's unfortunate, because they're taking advantage of a generation of kids that weren't around for the original thing." Nick Seymour of Crowded House "So many bands have taken from Led Zeppelin it's been quite incredible to watch. The whole 'Hall of the Mountain King' vibe was one thing for glam rockers to get into, you know? So all of a sudden you get fifteen American bands singing songs about climbin' up mountains and slayin' dragons and stuff, which is one of the things that Plant was into, that Old English and Celtic imagery. And then a lot of bands are into the black magic and the sorcery, which was Page's kind of thing. And then you get other people trying to base a band around what Bonham did. It's incredible that even as individuals they influenced different kinds of music. I think they're probably the greatest British live rock band. The one that had a real mystique, a real aura and presence about the band. It wasn't like a band; it was like some kind of moving spiritual roadshow. Led Zeppelin were a major influence on the Cult — I mean, we feel like the new generation, ourselves and the Mission and other new bands. I guess we feel like the new, shall we say, golden gods (Laughs). If anybody reads that, they're gonna go, 'Oh, what an asshole.' But it kinda feels that way, and it's great. I'll tell you one thing. If Zeppelin ever did a reunion tour, that'd be the biggest challenge for any of our lot. Led Zeppelin, you can't compete with them." Ian Astbury of the Cult "I think, essentially, they were a band, and everything they did came across as a band. They got self-indulgent at times, but they wrote great songs, and when they performed them as a band, the power of it really came across." Wayne Hussey of the Mission U.K "We started this sorta crusade when Let's Active first toured, playing 'Black Dog' and stuff when we'd go to do interviews at college radio stations. It was really outrageous to do that back then, but it was good fun, and there was no denying that those records were powerful and cool. And we also did 'The Rover' and 'Dancing Days' in concert for a while. Every few shows we'd get a New Wave-diehard type who just didn't get it, who'd say, 'What are you doing, man?' like it's a sacrilege. But most people really dig it, you know." Mitch Easter of Let's Active

  13. Simeon Lipman, head of pop culture at Christie's, has remarked about Led Zeppelin's cultural impact: "Led Zeppelin have had a big influence on fashion because the whole aura surrounding them is so cool, and people want a piece of that. There's no question that this T-shirt had been worn, but that's what makes them desirable. The blood, sweat and tears of the concert are embedded in the fabric."

  17. Johnny Depp to Direct Keith Richards Documentary I couldn't think of anyone better to do the first "official" documentary on the life of Keith Richards than Johnny Depp. As a lifelong 'Stones fan, much like Depp, Richard's life is so intriguing to me. The founding member and co-writer of all the major hits, has had a unique life. One filled with some very interesting tales ranging from how he got into music, his drug abuse to the Rolling Stones being exiled in Paris after tax problems created by a scrupulous manager. There is so much to tackle in Richards 40+ years as one of the front men of possibly the greatest Rock n 'Roll band ever. Variety confirms the story which was reported earlier by a Serbian magazine. They say that Depp would begin work on the documentary next week. Depp and Richards have been friends for over a decade leading to Richards appearance in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, portraying Captain Jack Sparrow's father. This was also due Richards being an inspiration in Depp's portrayal of the character. Depp's last directorial outing was The Brave, a 1997 film that starred Marlon Brando. It wasn't clear when the film was planned for release.
  18. In July 2007, Led Zeppelin II topped a poll conducted to find the favorite album of British politicians commemorating the London opening of a British library display. Damian Green, the Member of Parliament from the Conservative Party, said "It's the ultimate album for teenage boys - metal as art. No one ever topped it. The opening riff is straightforward perfection." On the same occasion, Liberal Democrat and the Member of Parliament Lembit Öpik said "Whole Lotta Love is the greatest rock song ever." The ONLY event in the history where "Liberal" and "Conservative" decisions were reached by consensus.... MORE: - Led Zeppelin Rock British Politicians - MP's Stairway to Heaven
  19. "Led Zeppelin is one of the most popular and influential rock bands of all time. Thirty years after their debut, the band’s appeal is as strong as ever. It’s fitting that these rock icons are multiple Diamond winners". - Hilary Rosen (Ex-President and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America RIAA) "I don't think they were ever appreciated for the scale of band they were. Maybe it's a sort of 'absence makes the heart grow fonder,' but it's taken people time to realize the massive influence they had on an awful lot of music." -Paul Ress (Editor of Q Magazine)
  20. Mary J is a fan of Led Zeppelin Mary J Blige has revealed she's a big fan of Led Zeppelin. The RnB star is such an aficionado of the English rockers that she has recorded her own versions of Stairway To Heaven and Whole Lotta Love. "I did Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven and Whole Lotta Love - it's crazy; I am a Led Zeppelin fan," she told MTV.com. "I'm not going to say I've been to their concerts, but I've listened to their music since I was a child, and it's always moved me, especially Stairway To Heaven, and Whole Lotta Love is just fun." The two covers are expected to be on the reissue of her Stronger With Each Tear album on March 22. Mary has recorded Stairway To Heaven with Travis Barker, American Idol judge Randy Jackson and guitarist Steve Vai. Read more: http://www.belfastte...l#ixzz0hs0eyvcC
