  1. I just realized that TYG is my work too. That YouTube user has a few of my videos up they're about 12 years old I'd say Here's Sick Again 75 style audio is from my 2.12.75 matrix
  2. Believe it or not, I did this with Black Dog, and it kept kicks ass like you wouldn't believe. I may post !
  3. The 11th is a debacle and one of Jimmys worst ever performances. It's sad because it should've been the better show, more relaxed, etc, but Jimmy , who has said himself he "wasn't well" n the 11th, just gagged it. I listened to Copenhagen 7.24 yesterday, can't believe it's the same guitarist sometimes. Addiction is a bitch
  4. Well, the song sonically maybe sounds interesting sorta, but there's no substance to it. Like most of it is just one chord and lots of "ahhhhs" It's ok nothing special his voice sounds good
  5. Jojesy also,wrote the epic "ascending" riff at end of Kashmir. It's complicated but it's part of the arrangement, not the song itself. But yeah, Jonesy did all that
  6. Well gee whiz I've been playing it wrong all these years I always played a Cdim9 chord sounded good to me !
  7. It's as if you haven't paid attention to anything Robert has said for past 1000 years. Remarkable level of disconnect.
  8. The only thing Presence lacks is low end. Its a fantastic sounding record with Bonzos drums captured super crisply and shimmering guitars everywhere
  9. It's not just Frankfurt. Some shows, like Munich and Mannheim, his tone is clearer and snappier, but then like you say it gets fuzzed out more in Frankfurt, and Rotterdam for example. I think Jimmy was experimenting with settings, this was a warm up tour after all. So some nights, he probably turned up the gain or Presence, fiddled with tone knobs etc. every venue sounds different, too. You gotta tweak things to work for you.
  10. This show literally drove them to Bron Y Aur. Fed up with the insanity of touring the South, death threats, etc, they headed for the woods to chill out.
  11. I don't fault Jimmy either the man spent way more time than the others working on their music he earned those extra bucks

    Any time now.....

    By my count, Robert has released 4 albums since 2000, this will make 5 Jimmy has been promising a new album since 2000, we've gotten zero so far seems to me Robert has a bit more credibility eh?
  13. Presence rocks hard, the songs themselves may not be their best, but damn, Bonzo and Jimmy sound incredible so it's a winner. ITTOD I don't have a problem with. I think it was a bit of a "Zep 3" a transitional album. I do not believe Zep would've morphed into a cheesy 80s synth act. Listen to the Firm and Outrider, those are guitar heavy projects, Jimmy had regained control of the band by the 80 Tour. Robert may well have left temporarily to do a solo project to scratch whatever itch he had, but had Bonzo lived, he NEVER would've escaped Zep shadow, not by a billion miles. Ask Mi
  14. It's easier than you think to fix Bonhams missing kick drum. 1. Firstly there is leakage. His kick drum was picked up by other Mics, so it's there, just not LOUD enough. 2. Sample let's say, 5 different kick drum hits from Bonzo from another night. 3. Go through concert at just paste paste paste paste paste it would take a little while, not as long as you think. A song a day is doable I'd say. The general public, and I dare say most of us would never know the difference.
  15. The portrait of Bonzo at the end is not a pretty one. He was drinking 24/7. Theres an anecdote in Dave Lewis book about day after cancelled 1980 Nuremberg show, a fan encountered Bonzo staggering drunk in hotel lobby clutching a bottle of liquor. He was a massive alcoholic, and it just killed him, obviously. he just needed serious help, but he didn't receive any. Very tragic and sad.
  16. Lots of questions on this one, but exciting to get confirmation it exists. is it film from just one camera? He apparently used multiple cameras, so that's a biggie right there.
  17. He'd disappear like Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars
  18. ZOSO is a sigil. I think it's part of a larger spell that Jimmy cast. It's an amplifier of sorts, projecting his will on listeners and drawing them in. In and of itself, it is meaningless. But it has Jimmy's true will and intent tied up with it. It's powerful, so careful with it. My .02
