  1. Remember kids, sheep go to Heaven, goats go to Hell
  2. What would you say is most exciting moment ? Flashpot exploding in Jimmys face Tempe 77 ?
  3. Had Zep survived into the 80s, the band was streamlining and leaving the extended solos behind. Naturally evolving until tragic events stopped them in their tracks. Snider recently also said Twisted Sister doesn't belong in Rock HoF. I agree with him on that!!!!!!!
  4. Guess they were pretty stoned lol thx Sam!
  5. I met someone recently who saw Zep Atlanta 73 show, I specifically asked if there was a video screen they said they didn’t recall seeing one used.
  6. If 77 tour shows were professionally recorded, it would’ve been done at a multi night stand venue such as LA, NY, or Landover ive never seen or heard any rumor of 77 pro recordings, as great as that would be
  7. Here's my version of Ramble On played on my trusty Irish Bouzouki enjoy!
  8. He’s such a great acoustic player, I’d go insane for an album of acoustic instrumentals.
  9. To clarify the Michael Palin quote is referring to shows at Royal Albert Hall not MSG
  10. Page is on the record saying MSG was great, but he wished he wasn’t so rusty.
  11. Im a big LA77 fan. Big 77 fan in general ! I wish MSG 77 was better represented sonically. I’ve never been able to get deep into those shows for that reason. my random 77 thoughts 6/7 I’m not a fan of because Jimmy is just too rough. Energetic, but rough. 5/22 I think one of best energetic shows of tour. 5/30 Bonzo sounds asleep 5/26 one of my personal faves very relaxed dynamic show with some nice fluid playing from Jimmy 6/23 my fave Zep show ever Jimmys best night of tour imho 5/21 I think is decent esp end of show 4/27 Jimm
  12. Alcoholism made him a Jekyll/Hyde kinda person, very tragic. Alcohol is a depressant, I’m sure that didn’t help his confidence either.
  13. Those fist pumping males are your FANS. They made you rich.
  14. I disagree with premise of this thread. Other years I understand but....... It should be titled “Appreciating Page 1973”
  15. I thought the scenes in Jimmys basement from IMGL were filmed at Tower House?
  16. Great to see it’s finally there! Cheers to the folks that made it happen.
  17. Re: Tuning Back in the day, shit just didn’t stay in tune. The technology of the time just wasn’t as good. Add the fact Jimmy used ultra light strings, and the fact that Les Pauls are notorious for not staying in tune, well there’s your recipe. i mean, don’t even get me started on poor Jimmys Strat in 79-80, but again, these were the days before locking nut tuners, etc etc its of its time
  18. When the Levee Breaks. I understand why they abandoned playing it in 75 just didn’t work
  19. I think JPJ has to be about one of the most respected musicians around cool pic
