  1. watching at the movie, I have felt a strong emotion, but basicly for the symbolic value of this "Celebration day", and also for the fact we were watching at it all together all over the world, united by the same strong passion (and I have tought to the song "the Ocean")....well....I think that this bunch of dear old men LOL are still good, great, speaking about their technical level, also if I am not a musician like many of you over here so I cannot speak about the level of the execution of every single note, but I wasn't expecting to watch a wonderful, mind-blowing concert, because for this there is TSRTS, as well as all the videos on this site and on you tube of their best concerts, when they were really Gods...while this reunion IMO has been great for the Celebration of their fame, their mith, that deserves to last till nowadays, so much so that in the cinema where I was over here there were so many young boys, teenagers, 16, 17 years old, with the LZ t-shirt and this is incredible, fantastic, huge…actually the volume of the sound, as many of you is complaining, was incredibly low, I don’t know why, LZ are terribly powerfull, and so it is absurd to listen to them in this way....anyway, what I have appreciated more has been the feelings, the glances among them, the way they stay together on stage again, expecially their way to look at jason and what his presence on that stage represents, and the antological explaination of how they took the blues of the 30th and with their "special treatment" it became something else, great, ethernal in fact I have enjoyed very much " in my time of dying " and "nobody's fault but mine", where the LZ "hard blues" is more evident, while I have to say that I have suffered a bit watching at " dazed and confused" because I adore it, and the image of that sort of pagan ritual when jimmy, playing guitar with the violin bow looks alike a sort of officiant of a mysteric cult, in my mind is forever linked to TSRTS, and so now watching at this old man doing the same has been a bit sad...in this sense I must say that I think Robert is right, it has been much more better to do only a one shot, a celebrative concert, and not a reunion with more tour dates all over the world....there is a time for everything....they are great, they will be for ever the best rock band ever, but now they are another thing, always good, very good, if you compare with many groups of the present, but another thing.....these have been my impressions at the end of this movie.....expecially looking at Robert, when he is looking at jimmy doing his solos, I had the impression that he wants to say: we have been great, the greatest ever, but now we are these....he (jimmy) is always prisoner of our past, but dear public, tell me, are you really sure that you want to see this again and again? Let's have this Celebration, and then stop it before we spoil everything...I am not sure wether this is really Robert's thinking or mine LOL......but these have been my feelings at the end of the movie .........
  2. I only remember that my brother older than me, who made me see BLUES BROTHERS and ANIMAL HOUSE was very sorry...and me too of course, also because after seeing him over the rocky mountain in CONTINENTAL DIVIDE, I was curious of what could do if he wouldn't die...I have enjoied his movies so much, and appreciated him as comedian, musician...a huge talent who made me feel the strong willing to destroy the guitars of so many poor singers that worth nothing LOL! http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F%3Fgl%3DIT%26hl%3Dit&hl=it&gl=IT#/watch?feature=mhee&v=M6aweJbgkL0

    Hot pics of Jimmy

    But tell me why this HYPOTHETICAL woman should stand???? LOL!
  6. Thank you for this great news, I have gone immediately on the womad site, I would like so much to go there..I agree with you, strange Sensation style combined with african music, and less country, would be a very good recipe! Also if I have loved so much BOJ because they are great artists and it has been such an emotion to see them live, and also if I have enjoyed that kind of psychedelic country rock, I think that, except for the nameLOL, this new group could be even better than BOJ, or nearer to my personal taste....Anyway it is always wonderful to see how Robert, despite his age, embraces new projects, new groups, tries to mix always different musical influences with the enthusiasm of a boy!!!!
  7. Well....almost true is a cycle of transmissions about rock miths, I saw also the others about elvis and morrison....they are almost true, precisely, so they are not documentaries......the author adds something of his own fantasy to joke about some legends such as satanism proved listening stairway to heaven backward, or about the title black dog...all people who talk during the transmission to prove theories such as the prediction of an earthquake in california with going to california, or the prediction of bonzo's death with when the levee breaks and with four sticks, or the story about frau von zeppelin who persecuted them when they went to play in denmark.....well all these people are only actors as you can see at the end of the transmission, that wants to be a fake!!!!!! It is very amusing, I can ensure to listen to the old black man who plays the part of an esorcist speaking with fired words against satanic rock and particularly against stairway to heaven, and at the end to realize he is only an actor....so it is a strange transmission, you can enjoy it or not, but it doesn't want to be taken seriously......To strider: why did you see berlusconi channels? There are more other channels, and some of them very high level.....I think trash tv is a problem all over the world, but I also think that it is very difficult to be able to compare european channels with the linguistic barrier........
  8. Rome under the snow!!!!!!!! Have you seen on tv? Watching at your pictures, it seems quite another city!!!!! It is wonderful to see our monuments in this unusual way, but it is also terrible because the eternal city is not prepared for this so it is a calamity!!!!! It takes hours to move by car, authorities have closed schools and public offices, and today there are many polemics against the mayor because the capital of the nation is in knees for the snow!!!!! So you had been lucky to have come before this disaster!!! Last night I saw on tv a documentary about a famous roman singer/songwriter who lives in Trastevere called Antonello Venditti, and I thought you would be happy to see it and recognize the place you have loved so much : follow this path and try to download it in podcast : The site: www.rai5.it After you must go to rai replay and search for this title: "amici miei antonello venditti" the date is : 02/02/2012 Of course is in italian, but you could enjoy seeing trastevere very well!!!!, try and let me now from this site you can see old transmissions until a week later so you can find it till next wednesday ciao anna maria
  9. well, in Rome, in Italy....BOJ played with BEN HARPER in two different concerts, one before the other.....so it has been a bit short, IMO, I think the american concerts, in wich BOJ played alone, have been longer than the roman concert I saw.....it started at half past eight and finished at ten o clock...they played GALLOWS POLE in the encore.........I hope for you you'll be able to see BOJ, they are awesome....maybe in a concert longer than mine!!!!!! anyway I'm happy the same.....at the beginning of this year I didn't expect BOJ in rome....RP hasn't been playing in rome since too many years..!...bye bye
  10. I'm happy for you at the end you succeded in finding the tickets and come in Rome......problably we stayed very next each other!!!!! yes, awesome concert, wonderful experience.....except for gallows pole, IMHO......I love too much the original version, and the version of the 1992 "no quarter" tour too, to appreciate this too slow and quite version....and I'm a bit sad they didn't play "rock and roll"...this is the soundtrack of my life!!!!! expecially when I'm down.....I just listen to rock and roll and I smile immediately.....anyway a great concert, only a bit short......because after there was BEN HARPER!!! great artist too!!!!! unfortunately they didn't do a session together as we expected...it would have been interesting!!!!! anyway I'm happy I saw a legend, the greatest frontman....I had fun seeing him in a very good shape for his age to move like a serpent with the microphone as he did when he was young!!!! of course he hasn't got the voice of his youth....but is always a wonderful voice.....a voice that is able to speak to my soul.....there are only three male voices that are able to do this to my soul: RP of course, peter gabriel and freddy mercury!!!!! bye bye
  11. I was there!!!! I post some photos..I did many, but the others are not good, I was too excited to do photos....I was just under the stage, so I saw Robert just in front of me!!!!! It was such an emotion, I can't describe.......I'm very very happy..... but.......I would rather preferred he played more tunes of his solo career, while they played many zep tunes...".bron-y-aur stomp "was wonderful, has been the best lz song in my opinion, I found it perfect to be played in the BOJ way because it was country also in its original version; " black dog " was different from the original but enjoyable, and the same for " ramble on ", "what is and what should never be" and "misty mountain hop" (unfortunately they missed "rock and roll"........ while about "gallows pole", that they played in the encore...well...I I didn't like very much, I found it a bit boring, while the original is so full of energy...at the end what can I say???? a great man, an awesome artist, the best frontman, and one could say the same for the other artists, buddy miller, patty griffin ecc....surely I will not forget this night for all my life.....but I don't understand why he can play so many zep song with BOJ and not with LZ!!!!!! I was in front of him, in the middle of the crowd under the stage, so I screamed together with him outloud "ramble on!!!!!" and "OH OH OH OH " and "I really don't know oh oh oh oh oh "....I was happy, full of joy but I would rather prefer to do this in a zep reunion!!!! I respect his choose, I like very much the album BOJ, so I think it would be better, it would have more sense, if they play more RP solo career tunes and less zep!!!!! anyway I'm very very happy........
  12. waiting for my chance to finally see Robert and the band of Joy (July 19, 2011, a memorable date for me, also because it is the first time I'll see robert live), I'm reading and rereading your posts ... ... many of you have said that he and the band are very hot, that Robert, as imagined, is very good at engaging the public, so I wonder how it interacts with people? for example, the lineup of songs performed is fixed, or you can make requests? Well, about LZ songs played by band of joy, I would like if they play "Gallow's Pole, " "When The Levee Breaks, " "Ramble On"and, of course, "rock and roll", because these are the songs, in my humble opinion, better suited to be revisited in the style of the band of joy, and in fact I see that Robert has incorporated them in the lineup of many of the concerts you have already seen ..... I also read some negative comments just about the performance of LZ songs, because for many of you is a distortion of these songs we love so much in their original version.... well I don't know if I'll feel in this way or not, I think that in any case he is a great artist and I will enjoy the concert!!!!!!
  13. I hope you are right!!! probably you are, because the concert will start at half past seven, while usually concerts start at half past nine.....anyway I'm very happy
  14. Robert Plant and Band of Joy and Ben Harper together in the same concert July 19 in ROME!!!!! I have got the ticket!!!!!! I wonder If someone else in this site will be at this concert....... it would be nice to meet and stay together....... surely we will not have the trouble of the snow!!!!!!! and surely it will be a very good concert....because I like ben harper very much....probably RP will not play all songs he would play if there were only BOJ....but I'm happy to see both these great artists in the same concert....
  15. sorry, I apologise, but I didn't find a better section to suit my topic....yes it's not a poll, also because the aim of my topic for me was to discover other music, to learn more from the other members....however, if you notice there are other topics in this section that are not polls just like mine: for example look at : "your favourite plant vocal" by Jimmy's a legend "favourite zeppelin albums" by the legendary zepp "what is the most relaxing layed back zeppelin song?" by led zeppelin fan1 and others.......anyway if you suggest me a better place to suit this topic I'll thank you....
