  1. Hyde always wore the most amazing Classic Rock shirts on the show. But his Zeppelin ones always stood out. For real though, I would love to have a closet full of some of the shirts he wore on the show. Great show. Great shirt. Great band.
  2. Love seeing a thread about that part of the song. It's always been my favorite part of the song. It shows how creative Page could be. Even in the state he was in during that period. So much energy and noise. I always turn the song up, and especially before that part of the song.
  3. 1. Physical Graffiti 2. Houses of the Holy 3. Led Zeppelin IV 4. Led Zeppelin II 5. Led Zeppelin III 6. Presence 7. Led Zeppelin 8. In Through the Out Door 9. Coda ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The toughest part of making this list was ordering numbers 4-7. I like all those albums a lot. Having the debut title be #7 looks odd, but it's a testament to just how much better they'd get, in my opinion. This is not an easy thing for me to do outside of #1....and possibly #2. After that, it was almost painful for me. LOL! It's also kind of cool and Interesting to see all the above posts that have PG as their favorite as well.
  4. I have to say 1973. Great album, great live performances, prime Robert voice, etc.
  5. For me, its simple: Richards is an asshole. He's always been an asshole. He says stupid things about artists all the time. His comments on Zeppelin are no different. Me thinks some jealousy is at the core of it. Or maybe because he's....you know....an old, bitter, asshole. But that's' just my take on it.
  6. "Dancing Days" was on 97.9 The Loop (Chicago) as I drove to work today. Good song to pep me up a little.
  7. I agree on "Bathroom Sound." It's a very cool sound without the vocals. I almost like it better as an instrumental. I like "Out on the Tiles", but the music alone makes me like the track even better now. And YES....Bonham's drumming on the track is so good. So fluid and powerful at the same time.
  8. I'm not totally well-versed in what could be considered "Classical Music", but I have fallen in love with both of these songs, and both of the composers. Some really good stuff. And for both of these, they are one song plucked from an entire suite. They're both my personal favorite pieces from their respective suites. Camille Saint-Saëns Gustav Holst This is an awesome live version. Better than most of the studio ones on YouTube. Mars!
  9. Led Zeppelin Babe I'm Gonna Leave You How Many More Times Led Zeppelin II What Is and What Should Never Be Heartbreaker Led Zeppelin III Since I've Been Loving You That's The Way Led Zeppelin IV The Battle of Evermore When the Levee Breaks Houses of the Holy The Rain Song No Quarter Physical Graffiti Kashmir Ten Years Gone Presence Achilles Last Stand Nobody's Fault but Mine In Through The Out Door In the Evening I'm Gonna Crawl Coda We're Gonna Groove Darlene
  10. Heard "Ten Years Gone" on SiriusXM Radio's "Classic VInyl" station. It was immediately turned up!
  11. Heard "What Is and What Should Never Be" on the way to work today. One of my absolute favorites. Put me in a better mood for work. Heard it on 97.9 The Loop here in Chicago.
  12. Out of the ones you listed, I would choose "SIBLY", but I have a couple personal favorite Zep song endings that weren't on the list, and caused me to vote for "Other" on your list: The Lemon Song Over the Hills and Far Away (personal fav) When the Levee Breaks Great list though.
  13. "What Is and What Should Never Be" was on the radio on my way to work this afternoon. It was on 97.1 'The Drive' here in the Chicagoland area. It's extra awesome to me because it's my favorite song off of Zep II.
  14. Someone was telling me about how they're "over the hill" when it comes to their baseball playing abilities. I almost instantly belted out: "....and far away." He had no idea what I was saying, but it didn't matter. It was satisfying enough for me.
  15. I love both bands, but I have always felt that Zeppelin was a more well-rounded band. Their music branched out more. I love a lot of The Who's lyrics and sound (especially live) though. Led Zeppelin will always be the standard by which all bands will be measured. I guess I have a bias. I do know that I will always love both, and continue to listen to both.
  16. I always thought the song was really good, and used to think that it deserved more mention. But then I came on this site, and realized that the song is more loved and appreciated by people who listen to all of their music. "Down by the Seaside" will always make me feel like I need to ust sit on a boat by the water.
  17. It's amazing how timeless and amazing their music can sound after 40 years. "Houses of the Holy" is my second favorite Zeppelin album after "Physical Graffiti." HOTH is such a diverse and well layed out album. Always loved it. Learned to love it even more over the last couple years. I am sure the love for it will keep growing too. My favorite song from this wonderful album would have to be "The Rain Song."
  18. Led Zeppelin?!?! Sadly, you have been wrong all these years. I hope he wasn't too hard on you when (hopefully) you found out it was Aerosmith and ONLY Aerosmith (mainly Steven Tyler) who wrote and played the original "Dream On."
  19. That's a perfect way to describe how I feel when I listen to Rain Song. It's something no other Zeppelin song gives me. Well said sir.
  20. Does anybody have any good locations for used record stores anywhere in the Chicago area? I'd love to check them out if they're out there.
  21. I am still not 100% sure how I feel about the album. Mick Wall wrote less than nice things in his book about it. I know several others have as well, but I enjoy the album for the most part. Is it my favorite from Zeppelin? No. But it has a lot of bright spots. ITTOD is a weird album to try and define. But like Led Zeppelin themselves, it's not something that can be defined.
  22. Other than the editing of some of Robert's talking to the crowd, I have started to love the performance more and more with each viewing and listen. It took a while for me to fully love the performance 100% when it first happened when I was watching all the bootlegs, and YouTube videos of the concert. As time has gone on, I have warmed up to the whole performance completely. I even have my "favorites" from it now and everything. I am so happy I ordered the Deuxe Edition. It was worth every penny in my opinion.
