    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    What makes a great video? Scholars can debate this for years. But, in my humble opinion, you can't go wrong with hot chicks and motorcycles. Which makes this one of the greatest videos of all time. I have a sudden urge to see "Werewolves on Wheels".

    What's the Last Concert You Attended?

    A headbanging night at the Wiltern this past Friday, March 15. A kooky opening band whose name I have forgotten. Then Graveyard went on at 9pm, followed by Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats at 10:45pm. Graveyard back from their hiatus. Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. Their sound is like a psychedelic Black Sabbath with an Alice in Chains touch on vocals.
  4. Since the last thread was purged, I am resurrecting it for all of us 'foodies'. Post a description and/or photo of what you are eating now or what was your most recent meal. Since breakfast kicks off the day, I'll begin this thread with my breakfast that I'm about to tuck into: eggs sunny side up, bacon, French toast, orange juice.

    Is there anything more painful than a brain-freeze? If so, I don't want to know.
  8. Holy shit. I just discovered Graveyard is also on the bill at the Wiltern with Uncle Acid. WIN-WIN!

    Advice on Knebworth 1979 rare t -shirt

    Yep. That is obviously a parking lot bootleg special. Not worth more than $75 - $100 in most markets.

    The Rest in Peace Thread

    Never watched "Airwolf" but liked and remember Jan-Michael Vincent from his great 1970s period. "World's Greatest Athlete" "The Mechanic". "Big Wednesday". "White Line Fever". "Baby Blue Marine". "Hooper".

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    I was around at the time and that is why I consider the description in the OP of a "severe backlash" to be nonsense. Listen to September 4 or September 19 1970. Do you hear a "severe backlash" from the crowd?

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    I find the whole backlash myth overstated. Maybe a few lunkheads and radio programmers were put off because there wasn't an obvious "Whole Lotta Love" part deux. Good riddance to those people. That was the band's intent...to weed out the sheep from the band's true fans who had the adventurous spirit and faith in the band's intentions to follow them wherever they wanted to go sonically. The record still hit #1 and the 1970-71 tours that straddled the release of the album mark a legendary high point in Led Zeppelin's concert career. The people who saw the band on these tours were the ones who created the incredible word-of-mouth buzz about Led Zeppelin's live appeal and fed into the enormous growth in Led Zeppelin's drawing power. And in the long run Led Zeppelin III has sold a fair amount of units over the years.

    Shamrock shake.
  22. It was Lou Reed's birthday the other day and as is my wont I went through my archive of live Lou and VU recordings. I have a fondness for this smoking-hot Paris gig from May 25, 1974. Much better than the official "Rock and Roll Animal" live release around the same time.
