  1. Hey dude, why don't you save your childish political comments for the appropriate place. This is Led Zeppelin.com, not the Rush Limbaugh show....get it? Looking forward to more comments on this previously unreleased sb.
  2. I sometimes think about what the '77 tour would have been like had it not been postponed 4 months (thats a long time). If I'm not mistaken, the band did not do 'any' rehearsals during this time, probably because of Plants voice, I'm sure. Page, by his own admission said he did not touch a guitar during this time, so they basically started their tour totally unrehearsed, thats scary (it sure would scare me). I really do think '77 would have been a different story if it had not been postponed 4 months.
  3. If your investment in the DWII soundtrack is shattered because there are a hundred signed copies instead of 30, then just cancel your orders, no need to gripe about a discount, thats just fucking petty. Personally, purchasing "limited signed copies" of 'anything', means nothing to me....thank God.
  4. I ain't buying it. Some internet dude overdubbed his drums and bass on top of Page's 'edited' guitar. Its a fairly good job, but its total bullshit. Reswati was the only one to realize...'somethin' ain't right here'. Hats off to you Res. Check this out. This is "some internet dude" who overdubbed the bass and drums trying to pass it off as Zep. I think that was the remix/edited version of this:
  5. There is a difference between the 'greatest' and the 'best'. Its easy to confuse the two, but they are very different words. great·er, great·est 1. Very large in size. 2. Larger in size than others of the same kind. 3. Large in quantity or number: A great throng awaited us. See Synonyms at large. 4. Extensive in time or distance: a great delay. 5. Remarkable or outstanding in magnitude, degree, or extent: a great crisis. 6. Of outstanding significance or importance: a great work of art. 7. Chief or principal: the great house on the estate. 8. Superior in quality or character; noble:
  6. Let it go, man. This thread has moved back on topic. Enough already...once again.
  7. That was fucking great! What else can you say?
  8. "We Love the Crack" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hI7Mz1Mgz0
  9. Enough already. Lets get back on topic here.
  10. Let me just say 'I Fucking Love the Stones', and....I totally agree that, most (not all) Stone's records contain a lot of 'fat'. They weren't too interested in 'quality control' past 1971. Sure, they pumped out tons of records and made gobs of money, but they're good songs are just so damn good, I can't hold it against them. Lady Gaga...hands down.
  11. I'm not one the local experts here, but I've never heard this before. I think it is, could be wrong though. However, from what I'm hearing, its really good. The vocals are impressive, John Miles is somewhat of a chameleon with his voice. I had to check to make sure it wasn't Chris Farlowe, who sounds nothing like Plant, who he pulls off pretty good as well. Most of all though, the guitar sounds fantastic, especially the quick little riff at :12 Love to hear the rest of it.
  12. Cool! You got t-shirts for both men and women. I noticed the "womens" t-shirts appear to have a thinner cut around the mid section. This kind of rules out the heavier female sector of the market for these shirts....no? My fat girlfriend is bitching about it right now, I think we have a problem here.
  13. God, that was boring as hell! I'm sorry, but The Groove Remains the Same blows JBLZE away. They take themselves alot less seriously, have 'fun' doing it, and it ain't about making a bunch of money off of the name of Led Zeppelin. It is a true tribute to John Bonham, thats something I can appreciate. Sorry, I just don't get all the enthusiasm for a Zep cover band, especially a boring one. Sure, they manage to sound like the records, but note for note music never had anything to do with live Zeppelin, and never will. Also, I'd take any of the drummers from the Groove Remains the Same t
  14. Thats a really bad analogy. She basically ruined her career on that night, and it had nothing to do with music. Dylan made it past Newport, and Neil Young (this is a strectch), survived shitty Neil Young albums in the 80's. The controversy surrounding these events are really not comparable...as well.
  15. This is true, But I think the positive influence Zeppelin had on the Seattle explosion in the early 90's really balanced out the crap that was going down in L.A. "hair metal" scene mid to late 80's. Bands like Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam really cleaned the slate and got it right. Let me also give props to the Red Hot Chili Peppers for being the best band to come out of L.A. in the 80's and also being a major factor in destroying the pretentious glam rock hair metal scene they were surrounded by.
  16. Yes, late 80's early 90's hardcore rap was phenomenal. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Dsnc5AEK6Q
  17. There's only one way to play that song, and thats with 'everything' you got! Chad certainly did that...and then some. Gave me chills, love it.
  18. Remember, it was "10 1/4" reels of guitar solos", not "10 take's". 10 reels of tape probably holds close to 4 hours of recording time. You could put 20 take's of the Heartbreaker solo on one tape....easily. I'm not buying it either.
  19. 10 reels of tape for a 45 second solo....really? All I can say is, listen to the solo, its 'very' loose (a little sloppy) and has no discernible cuts in it, much less 10. "Chopping away" at 10 reels is gonna' take more than one day, I can tell you that, I have a few tape decks, it takes time, and back then they had to physically cut tape as well. It sounds like the best of three to me.
  20. Anybody notice the similarity between the Yardbirds "Happenings" and Hendrix's "House Burning Down"? The music and drum beat during the verse is very, very similar.
