  1. I'm Gonna Crawl anyone??? TSRTS (slidin') Achilles Last Stand 1977:)
  2. What I was referring to was his habit of mentioniong that people would go to the bathroom during certain songs. One specific example is during the Walking into Clarksdale tour. He said some of the new Page/Plant songs had a curious effect on the bladder of certain members of the audience, meaning they weren't appreciating the new material. When I saw him with Strange Sensation he said, after Freedom Fries 'Thanks for the overwhelming reaction (being sarcastic). No, no, it's all right, I know what it feels like. I've been to a Leonard Cohen concert when I was young'. I am not sure, but I think I read somewhere that he made similar comments about the 2007 gig, at which many undeserving people (I know, who the hell am I, but the spirit of it will bear witness to the facts pertinent) were present. And to drive the 'establishment' mad, it's cool to want Robert Plant to embark upon a musical endeavour with James Patrick Page, John Baldwin and Jason Bonham. It is also a human right that all humans have to express the opinion that he is making a monumental mistake by not doing so. Carpe diem.
  3. Thank you, I loved your reply and agree with it, even the part where I might not know what I'm talking about. In all reality, I'm only 30.
  4. Obviously, without fans, he would be poor and without a record deal, busy getting fired from an accounting job. He needs a really good reason to make Zep music? What about the amazing music that would become? Making hundreds of millions of people happier because of the wonderful music that would be? I mean how much of a phoquing chore can it be to sing songs you are proud of having recorded to the cheers of tens of thousands of fans at a time? Not positive enough? I guess he prefers getting nods from pastel fans who go for his style of music sheepishly. His solo work is not as good as what a new Zep album could/would be. How many times does this need to be said? Man, I have a voice too. Stop telling me I can't wish Robert Plant would make music with 'Zep'. I WISH ROBERT PLANT WOULD MAKE ANOTHER ZEP ALBUM AND GO ON TOUR WITH IT WITHT THE GUYS AND STOP BITCHING LIKE A MINDLESS EX-WIFE WITH ALL KINDS OF BULLSHIT REASONS FOR INFURIATING EVERYONE AROUND HER EXCEPT HER NEW BOYFRIEND AM I still a snob?
  5. What's with the Rollingstone reviewers trying to convince us that we shouldn't wish Robert Plant would willingly create music with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones? What the heck? Chocolate hating quakers i tell you. Robert Plan'ts solo music is too pastel. People truly fail to honestly assess if they would have liked Robert Plant's solo work had he never done Zep (and I hope speculating that the musical landscape would have been so different that an alternate universe of music appreciation would have come to be in which Robert Plant was God). If Robert would be all for it, we would all be rejoicing for the music to come, the concerts to attend. I hear people talking about media perception, people going to the bathrooms during certain songs, etc. Is that really the point? Seriously? I believe the history of music itself would greatly benefit of Robert's seal upon a musical project involving the creative inputs of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. In my heart of hearts I feel that it could be so beautiful and amazing. Here's the other thing, repeated endlessly on this forum : perception. Perception can be erroneous. It can provoke any range of reactions. Is it absolutely impossible that Robert Plant's perception could change? It is clearly the obstacle in the way of a reunion. I just finished listening to Buddy Guy's Living Proof album. 74 Years Young, WOW. And Robert Plant is talking about singing Communication Breakdown in leather pants, asking a reporter how old he is? I think he sounds like he cares far too much about what others think. What if he stopped caring about any of the vibes that seem to come from outside of him? How can he say he is proud of the music he created and then turn around and say it was a youth thing? Okay, he can do something with the passion of youth, be proud of those moments and then realise he can't do it anymore. Yes, that is a possibility. Thing is, though, he sings like a motherphoquer. Saw him with Strange Sensation. Holy shit. But.... I couldn't care less for half of his band or half of the songs. I spent the evening committing what is a capital sin on these forums according the Rollingstone reviewer-minded posters such as Jahfin : imagining what it would be like if Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were up on stage with Jason Bonham. The capacity is ALL there. The only obstacle is Robert's perception, not his capabilities or the perception of the public. All the reasons that come out of his mouth are in essence irrelevant in this respect : It is not impossible or ill-advised for him to sing with Page, Jones and Bonham. He simply doesn't want to. I believe he is afraid. I do not say this in a childish way. Call me a snob, etc. But this I say in earnest : I think he is insecure for whatever reasons he choses to express or conceal, but that if he just decides to effin do it, HE CAN. This frustrates me so much he can do it and, in truth, him not doing it is the only thing in the way. Nobody will remember Band of Joy and Raising sand 50 years from now if not for his refusal to rejoin his former bandmates. If he were to do another Zep album, it will be remembered forever. And if that's precisely what he's afraid of, then it is just fear and ego getting in the way. And it's not like we're asking a man to remarry his first ex-wife after being divorced for 15 years. We're asking him to make beautiful music. History will always remember his ego, his demands and the reasons for them. That's also what we got to remember him by, not just his solo work. Hope this is more readable for the snake stompers
  6. Thank you for clearing that up, very important. This is another one of your CNN-esque replies. You play up the notion of Alice Cooper's right to an opinion not being challenged as though the previous poster was defending that right unnecessarily, making your post therefore being purely redundant and implicitly critical. Why do you say you 'don't recall anyone saying he wasn't'? Does that rhetorical question disprove or mean anything? Or does it rather reveal you being upset that somebody is defending his voice, a voice with which you fundamentally disagree with and find unworthy of being defended? Seeing the apparent lack of causality of that poster's statement - it was a pure expression, not a response, you were frustrated because any causal response to that statement which would support your opinion on Alice's statement/opinion was impossible. You were unable to disagree that Alice is entitled to his opinion. And you were upset, because you don't like Alice's opinion. And somebody said something that had the appearance of shielding Alice's opinion from criticism. So you just pot-shotted the post by both agreeing (probably sarcastically) and then stating that you personally have no recollection of anyone disagreeing. I mean, you're acting defensive in response to a positive statement not even directed towards you or one of your opinions. And on top of that you word it all in a way that does not allow for literal/lexicological pinpointing of your veiled opinion. What is clearly apparent is that your volition in relation to the original post was that of expressing some form of dissent/discomfort/annoyance. You basically wished the guy said 'I agree with Alice' and possibly feel that that is the exact thought he expressed. So you just couldn't resist saying 'I don't recall anyone saying he wasn't'. So because you thought he expressed a veiled opinion, you replied with what appears to be, rhteorically speaking, a useless, anecdotal statement attempting to, surreptitiously, imply that the statement you were replying to was a socially agreed-upon tautology. My opinion : by association, you resent the tautological post because you were unable to assail it dialectically/rhetorically and because it appeared to give veiled credence to an opinion you fundamentally disagree with, although you never have the courage to express it explicitly. So you beat around the bush, say something useless and which clearly imparts the impression that you are at odds with the statement, both for, according to you, being needless and disagreeing with your unrelated opinion which is not related to the right to an opinion itself.
  7. Each one of your posts appears to be as unfounded and actually void of content as each of Rollingstone's criticisms of Zeppelin. You say something that appears to disagree, yet you say nothing other than 'Alice is full of it' and ask a question that is also a veiled statement of agreeing with Plant. Then, as soon as anyone has a comeback, you can fall back on your wording and fireback 'All I said was....'. I disagree with your opinion forever. Robert is also too old to be reciting college poetry with a bunch of third tier musicians. They are third tier, they are talentless in comparison with Page, Plant and Jones and they are uninspiring. All Robert Plant is doing is leveraging his Zep past ans his name recognition to get a rise out of what he wanted to become famous for before he was with Zeppelin : hippie poetry and 'can't-criticize-this-because-its-mellow-and-not-loud' songs. You could shove 12 random country singers into Robert's current setup and the music wouldn't be changed, and neither would its significance. The same can't be said for his place in Zep. He's entitled to his opinion, but so are you and I. Stop bashing people for disagreeing with him. After all, he's disagreeing with a sh*load of poeople himself. What would you rather get? A new solo Plant album with covers, pastel sounds and little bite, or a historic landmark album to seal the deal with Zep? He CAN do it. Does he need a good reason? He says he does. How about this Robert. If you're such a wonderful human with such powerful integrity, why don't you tour the world and donate your 250 million dollar share to some charity? Change the lives of thousands of people for the better. Give it two years, an album, a tour and an effort. Typical Leo behaviour. Disagree with someone, maul them in the face till they run away and never come back, and then pretend to convince yourself that you won the argument. And you Jahfin, start giving actual statements, something people can actually point to and debate. Stop making half-statements and then hide behind some bs neutral shield. I see no good reason for Robert to cower away. The 'leftovers' we got in 2007 were better than anything he ever put out in his solo carreer, that's for sure. I'm fed up with mindless people expressing dishonest opinions!
  8. Chocolate-hating conformist. Nothing Robert has done solo will ever be as significant as another Zep album. Kindly accept that as well.
  9. There's even a typo on page 184/185/186 (I forget which and I'm not opening my book for this). It says 'Start of 7th American Tour' twice. The second time should read 'End of 7th American Tour'
  10. Yeah Fedex and UPS are thieves that charge a 'brokerage' fee.
  11. I received my copy (requested number 333 received!!) I cherish this book very much. It weighs a ton and I never wanna finish it. It's like a little treasure I know I have stashed away I can look at whenever I want. It is an extremely beautiful book. I like everything about it. I also read Jimmy's words as a treasure very dear to my heart. When I saw that first picture and read the line where he said he wanted to present something giving an account of his contribution to music, I got real emotional and teary-eyed. Thanks Jimmy. This will be your ultimate gift to me. I almost feel like it is a personal gift handed from you to each of us fans who dearly wanted it. You made that feeling happen. Thank you so much. Let's hope it does indeed get louder.
  12. Just got my Fedex Sticker when I got back home:) Got till 8 pm tomorrow to pick it up at the dispatch center! Mine was copy 333
  13. Both actually:) I moved to Ontario from Pointe-Claire two years ago, to a city where no laws are needed to keep French predominant and alive. Everybody in Hawkesbury speeks French. All the shop signs are in French. Even arriving immigrants speek French lol. I just moved back to Pointe-Claire this June. Back to civilization. My history teacher from McGill told us in class that if you were in a train crash around Hawkesbury in the late 1800s, you were as good as dead, even if you survived. I chuckled, because at the time I was commuting to school from a smaller town next to Hawkesbury called L'Orignal (literally, The Moose). Anyways, confirmed the address and I am getting copy number.... 333 :) Liber CCCXXXIII for Crowley Neophites. I initially wanted number 89 for the 89th chapter of that book, the absolute best one which contains the notion of pure truth, whether the words in it be truthful or not. David said my copy would ship within two weeks... can't wait!
