  1. I vote for San Francisco. Listen to Page himself... "I can tell you when I knew we'd broken through, which was at San Francisco. There were other gigs, like the Boston Tea Party and the Kinetic Circus in Chicago which have unfortunately disappeared as venues, where the response was so incredible we knew we'd made our impression—but after the San Francisco gig it was just—bang!" Plus, if you're going to San Francisco you're going to meet allot of gentle people there. Jut not as many as you used to. I really think they should set up shop in Las Vegas and let people come to them. That wa
  2. You guys bashing Plant are fracking lame. The man can do what he wants. "Hardcore fans?" please. I have liked Zeppelin for over 30 years. I have seen the members of Zep in different projects over a dozen times, etc. Being hardcore has nothing to do with it. So I, while not as hardcore as I once was, know what it is like to long to see Led Zeppelin. Disappointment is one thing, but trashing Robert Plant becasue he does not want to tour with Zep is a joke. The man helped give us music that has enriched our lives in many ways. He is making great music that he and many others enjoy and you flame h
  3. Ok, you are entitled to your opinion and I understand your disappointment, but who the heck are you to tell Robert Plant what he should or should not do and what he should or should not play? Robert owes us nothing...
  4. The Onion rules! Here is another Zeppelin one. http://www.theonion.com/content/node/28086 Interesting to see if anyone gets their knickers twisted over this very funny spoof on Zep fans. Peace, Booted...
  5. This is something I would say and you have me by a decade. Too funny.
  6. Here is the deal on what they will or will not do: When you see it on their web-site or on 5 million news pages, then it is perhaps a go. Until then, even if someone is in the "know" about things, until the band says "so", who knows fact from fable? Peace
  7. I love this band and an look forward to the Official DVD/CD. This show was so superb. Thank you Led Zeppelin! Please read the 'About This Video' Peace
  8. They have done this in San Francisco and San Jose for many, many years. Live Zep has been a staple of 'Get The Led Out'. If the band go after them I would be surprised. I mean Jimmy goes to Boot shops in Japan. The station is just pumping Zeppelin and while they do sell commercial time, really it just pumps the band up more. I hope they are cool. They were so good. Peace.
  9. OK, here is what they could do to avoid the trappings of a tour and schedule. Get a running gig in a good venue in San Francisco, NY, Chicago, Las Vegas, LA and do X weeks in each city. That way they can be rested before each night. Also, world tours take a long time. I am not sure they would want to be on the road that much. If they do tour, it will focus on the USA first or perhaps some shows in Europe before the massive US tour. If they play Stadiums, I am going to lean towards sitting the tour out. I have been to enough of those to know better (for me). If they play indoor 18-20K
  10. Give them a little time. I agree it is lame, but I doubt they are going to wait to make a decision on the DVD. If they are going to do it. THey can have editors and Kevin Shirley start right away or after the new year and have it in stores in less than 6 months. I do not think the band f#$ked anyone over. Peace
  11. WTF, Zeppelin would not blow Floyd away or vice versa. Two different wonderful bands. I think when I get done listening to the O2 show, I will put one some Floyd. Page and Glimour are so good and different. Peace
  12. The cat is out of the bag though. Sure they will go after youtube ad others, but the web is massive and the number of devices that were there at the show are large in number. They should be stoked that so many people are able to hear the show and get reconnected with the band. They killed at this show. There were some feed back errors, but I mean this show was just too good. Most of 1977 has nothing on this show as far as being a sound sober performance IMHO. Different I know, but come on. Warner should call off the dogs and Jimmy and Co. Should get in the edit bay and get a DVD/CD ou
  13. There were plenty of cameras there. Watch the footage on youtube. There were two onstage that I saw and there was one in front of the stage that would move the length of the stage. As to weather or not there were cameras up high on a jib or not, I do not know. Anyone else? The news is not going to multiple cameras onstage and be edited the way it was. Peace.
  14. Correct me if I am wrong, but he has used a Les Paul on Kashmir in the past and I am not speaking to the self tuning model. 75 Tour perhaps. I stopped obsessing years ago, so the details are not as sharp as they were when I was 7-20 something years old. I got into them in 1977ish. Peace
  15. I do not think the hickups were cause of the hurt finger. Jimmy has hickuped here and there and there and here since day one. He is not note for note to often, but he is and will always be my favorite. I am listening to No 1/4 right now and it is hot. I cannot wait for a cleaner version. Peace all.
  16. Yes, of course the Black Dog clip was given by the PR folks to the media. The fact that they left themselves off the Live Aid DVD make me think they would want this event shown. Peace
  17. Evester, When you say formally filmed, what do you mean? I guarantee they recorded all feeds right to disk arrays and not just the produced mix for the screen. Everything seems to leak out these days so I bet they had technical security personnel working to ensure that it was captured to two different raids (in case one failed) and then taken and locked up for further use or to be locked away. I just cannot see them not wanting the masses to see that they could pull it off 27 years later. Let's hope I am right. Peace all. I have been wanting to go back to the boot shops in Japan, so
  18. Evster, As usual spot on. I never talked smack, but I did have a little uncertainty that things might go the way of many post 75 shows. Watching the vids a 2 AM last night dispelled all of it. Evster and I met at a Pink Floyd show in Oakland in 1994. I wish we could have met up again at this show. I know we are sharing the same buzz at the moment. Think of all the people that are still on vacation in London and will not get home to a computer for a few days. The amount of video is going to be posted on the web will keep us busy until the a high quality DVD is available in Japan and I bet
  19. Hello my friend. Good to see you. Is it 2012 yet? Looking forward to it. Do you know of anyone that got their name poached before they could sign up? I knew mine was safe. Booted....
  20. A. They owe us nothing. B. I doubt if Robert did a Zep tour, that it would be solely for the money. (sure he would take the cash, but the music would have to be good and money not the deciding factor) C. Paul Rodgers is still a great singer D. They get a new singer and call themselves The New New Yardbirds E. If Robert says "Nope" and Page does something else, I hope he does something newish and not a tour of Zep Songs sans the band. He did that with the Crowes and it was great. I was at the Greek show. F. If E is a true statement, then Page, should call Tony Franklin, Jason Bonham and fi
  21. These discussions can be fun, but really they are pointless when trying to determine who's the "Best". Page has been my favorite guitar player since I was a little kid in 1976. He, while not always technically precise can do more with a few notes than most people can do with 100's of notes. His emotion is amazing. But really look at guys like Don Ross and Michael Hedges(before he died). They do stuff on the acoustic guitar that Page and most of us could not pull off if we tried. No slight against Page, everyone has their strong suit. Just different styles. (OK, I am just pimping these guys
