    Plant / Bonham 1972 audio interview

    Idk man, just listen to Joe Morello interview, he’s much more articulate and non barbaric than Bonzo. sorry man, all in good fun !

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    Jimmy is worth 300 million or whatever, he just doesn’t need to perform. Its a tough business, I think Jimmy doesn’t wanna start from scratch at this stage in life. He made his musical statement.
  5. And Hiseman was no Bonham.
  6. I just disagree here. In his day, Bonzo was TERRIBLY impressive, jaw dropping and revolutionary. Yeah, drumming has evolved and his technique isn’t as high by today’s standards. Had he not died and sobered up, Bonzo would’ve continued to evolve. It’s a tragedy he didn’t get that chance. Ive been a musician for over 35 years, and a good one, I’ve played with many, many, many great drummers. Pros, real pros. Bonham is held in the absolute HIGHEST esteem.

    All I can say is please don’t even bother reviewing 8/11 which to me, is Jimmys all time worst show. it will cause you great pain Gibsonfan

    Everybody is making music ...except Jimmy.

    Think of it metaphysically Jimmy was/is Zeppelin personified Zep no longer exists Jimmy is retired
  9. I find early Live Zep close to unlistenable Robert screeches and howls way too much, Bonzo doesn’t always keep solid time. They were much much better by 1970.

    This list is a great jump off point for sure !

    Page's Supro amp recreated

    Why is this sad? every other guitar player has signature guitars and amps, at least Jimmy has done something special and interesting. Hes 75, probably arthritic, and is curating his legacy.

    Robert Plant's Range Rover 1973

    I never thought Tangents in a Framework was a hatchet job, it was one of a only a few books on Zep out there in early 80s it’s just an overview book on his career nothing salacious or anything. Why did it piss off the band ?

    Types Of PA's Used On Early Tours

    WEM systems early on Once they picked up Showco in 1970 they left all sound to them.

    Yep, I’ve been waiting to see your comments on 7/24 total fluke show out of nowhere Jimmy just plays like a man possessed, in reality, Jimmy NEVER plays this well again for rest of his life so glad bootleggers captured one of his all time great performances easily in top 3 fave Zep shows for me

    The Lemon Song (studio)

    Well, it’s in E so that tells me it’s at it’s natural pace, not messed with.

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    These pics are outstanding great close up detail !
  21. Honestly, the movie is an unwatchable mess. It’s like a student film, so crude. Jimmys soundtrack is marginally interesting. both film and music are evil and disturbing and don’t merit repeat viewings IMHO

    5/26 has long been a 77 fave for me, I think the band has a relaxed approach for entire show, I love this one
