  1. What's this mean? (From that same link...) He ain't dissin' Catholics, is he? I mean, he can diss aspects of it and he can diss Tony Blair, but, like, don't diss me, man. C'mon.
  2. I don't know about Mr. Plant being a better singer after Zep, just cuz I always think he sounds great... But better lyricist? Indeed. His writing got better. And it wasn't too bad in the 70s, either. I used to be hard on him, but I think I get it now.... And Mr. Plant woulda been a great teacher! I gave it some thought. I've listened to some bootlegs... "Good evening." *crowds murmurs* "No, I said "Good evening!" *crowd murmurs more clearly* "That's better..." It just makes me wanna sing "Good Morning to All" and give him an apple.
  3. I disappeared for awhile there! Work has been killer... I'd like to come back to this topic and murder it myself. I am so embarrassed to say that Duran Duran was an alright band in the early nineties. Weird. The "Wedding Album" is what it was called, I think, but that wasn't the official title. I don't know the whole story there... Anyway. I like "Come Undone." I still listen to that! The mods are armed?! I get what you're saying! You are right. Agreed. Thank you everyone else for contributing to the topic! I was truly interested, and I loved the answers
  4. Dude, that's jacked up. If that really is Plant's attitude -- and who knows if it is -- it's probably indicative of something like PTSD, which is a nasty disorder to suffer from. I work with people who have it, and it causes tremendous pain that can last years -- with therapy. It's insulting to hear someone say that he needs to just go to therapy and get over it, because there's tons of people out there who feel they're owed a new Zeppelin. Ughh... Oh, the humanity! I'm all irritated now.
  5. Owain Glyndwr!! My great-great-great-great-grandma's name was Polly Owen, and she's descended from Mr. Glyndwr's sister. So thank you, Wales for Owain and his father Gruffydd Vychan IV, because that's why I'm here. Also thank you Wales for your butt-kicking mythology and artwork. I believe King Arthur was Welsh, so thanks for Camelot.
  6. I was wondering who that lady was that Planty was with! (In the halfstache pic.) I've never heard of Sunny Griffin, but I shall investigate forthwith. He appears to be wearing the same clothes he wore in this pic: And I wanna say this was taken in Europe somewhere... (Denmark?)... in 1971? Oh, and I didn't get that pic of him and his wifey from the FamilyZepp site, but I know which site you're talking about. I try to keep track of where I get some of these pics, but I can't remember where I got that one. If you save the pics I post, I have notes attached to them. Sometimes the

    Oh, praise the Lord! I have a couple questions I've been dying to ask, but there's no easy way to bring it up. It's actually a pretty serious topic, and I'd love any kinda feedback. For real. This is work-related and grave. What is mental health treatment like in the UK? (Hopefully you guys are crazy enough to know.) I've heard from a few different British people who suffer from mental illnesses that it's difficult to get what you need. Like, they don't take you very seriously, they're less likely to diagnose you with something that requires expensive treatment, and they're less like
  8. My father always told me you couldn't walk on the wing of a plane, and I so wanted to! He musta said it just to keep me off his plane! Cool pic, though, regardless. Here's a question that's probably easily answered, but I need help. Regarding these two shots... I thought for a long time they were from the Gold Record Awards shindig on Dec 11, 1969. But the pics don't quite match with those. Behold: So where's the two earlier ones from? Thank you!
  9. Part Two You had to carry your crap around with you all day? Holy hell! Absolutely true! I wasn't around back then, but I'm thinking it was mostly racism that kept blues unpopular. The majority (white folks) didn't listen to "black music." That's still a common mentality today, too, for some people. There's an ass-kicking collection of American folk music by Alan Lomax. Here's hoping Mr. Plant listened to it during his Raising Sand period. Lomax is well-known for going around and recording folk music in the 30s and 40s, and the stuff he captured is incredible. I wann
  10. Part One Nope, just curious. I just finally got my degree in sociology/anthropology, so I'm sorta hard-wired to ask these kindsa questions. A lot of you guys might think I'm asking for mundane details, but when you've gone on an archeological dig and can't tell that your recently-unearthed artifact is a buggy spring, you realize that the mundane details are crucial, y'know? Fer example... the AM/FM radio thingy you guys are talking about is confusing me. Lemme get a good image here to help elaborate on my confusion... I never listened to much radio, but I never realized
  11. (Hopefully I've put this in the right section of the board... Please move if not, moderator. ) Led Zeppelin is obviously still really relevant, and they probably will be for generations to come. However, we can learn a lot from the first generation to really love Zep, especially since they were the ones who made them rich and famous. So please -- talk to us whippersnappers, old timers. (I mean "old timers" with all due respect.) Fill us in on how Zeppelin fit in with the social and historical context of the time. For example: Was a Led Zeppelin concert different back then from a c
  12. That's what I was gonna say. Did you know that the Statue was regifted, though? It was sposed to go to Egypt, but they couldn't afford it. So the US was their second pick. According to some crap I heard on The History Channel, so who knows how true it is. So thanks for picking us second, France! lol
  13. Yeah, he doesn't seem to be hugging a groupie. She isn't groupie-like, anyway, y'know? She's wearing a big corduroy jacket, not, like, y'know, stupid groupie crap. And from a girl's perspective... if Mr. Plant were feeling affectionate enough to draw your face towards his (with those murderer gloves!,) would you really be pouting and giving him a sorta sideways-hug? That's not a groupie hug. Or it's a groupie in an un-groupie-mood. Plus, most of the pics I've ever seen of Mr. Plant being ornery with groupies usually show him smiling like he ate the canary. 'Cept for that one at R
  14. I have a wild idea about who she is... I'll do some research... Probably won't find anything, but I'll definitely let you know if I do. You guys probably already know this, but he's at the same place in this pic: I personally would totally have put this in 1975, although the hair length certainly indicates '77. That scarf's familiar, too.... Anybody gotta Retna account? Then maybe we could read the caption better? EDIT: Coulda sworn I'd seen that scarf before, but now I can't find it...
