  1. (D'Yer M'aker) have to admit with this song Ive always thought it was a really bad song, some people might respect it but personally feel its Zep trying to be soomething they are not, so Im going to agree it should not have been included. The quote was by Raymond Williams an anthropologist but no idea why I added this, seems quite silly now. Have to admit as well Live recordings always add a special something to an album, that close your eyes and place your self within the crowd type of feeling! Have a few albums by Jeff Buckley which are live recordings, another genius which I will never experience live; makes me appreciate the craftmanship even more. Mothership in a sense had to offer 2 CD's partly due to the range of style that Led Zeppelin offered throughout their approx 20 years together and partly their ideologies of always wanting to try something new perhaps with (personal opinion) negative effects. i.e 'D'yer Maker'. On the other hand some fans may well have close knit ties to songs which aren't great but have dscovered the real Zep through them, a kind of gateway to the promised land. Mothership exclusion of tangerine puzzled me why did a song that has been argued to be a real sense of Zep history fail to make the cut? Was their band involvement or issues with finding the right place to fit the song in, due to the phonological aesthetics? Either way Mothership is a sign that no matter how many years it's been since the dis-banding and untimely death of JB, there will always be a place for digital versions and re-releases of Zep recordings to come out. We as fans must remember that in 2008 we also had the re-release of 'TSRTS' and both did exceedingly well within the UK, elsewhere im not sure about. Im 24 and im passionate about LZ a band in which I will never see live, that really does in a sense hurt! I originally signed up at first due to my University essay on LZ fans but now this forum is like a further extension, connection and identity of LZ.
  2. The Mothership was released in 2008 and what a compilation of Zep classics, a journey of musical craftmanship which we all love im sure. The question is their any songs you wish were on the album and which were not? For me disk 1 is real Led Zeppelin the stuff I love, the jealousy is also wihtin my heart on the whole CD. I wish I was in my 20's in the early-mid 70's not only were the band at their peak but so were the songs Stairway to heaven, black dog, whole lotta love and of course kashmir being my personal favourite. Disk 2 I like but for a different reason but its not really what I clasify as pure Zep it doesnt contain the blues riff or sexy funky overtones that make the body and mind become Plant just for a moment; you know what I mean? The question as the Theorist Williams would say in all sweetness and light is what would you change about the album?

  5. Thanks Cecil As part of the project into fandom I decided the best way to gain a fuller insight into Led Zep fans was asking those on this site for their view points.

Also if other Zep fans can look at the attatchment I would be very happy for your feedback Questions on Led Zeppelin fandom Have you got any tattoos of Led Zeppelin and how do you feel this expresses your fandom. How do you feel about tribute bands, are there any that you particularly like Have you got a favourite member of Zep and is their a particular element that drew you to his persona What do you think makes Led Zeppelin such a special band Do you wear particular items of clothing or model your appearance in a particular fashion. E.g. long hair, particular jeans due to your fandom. Have you seen Led Zeppelin live and do you feel fans that have are more in touch with the band. E.g. a potential hierarchy between fans.

  7. Hi all Zep fans Im doing a 5000 word essay into fandom, my fandom choice is Led Zep and was wondering if I could get fans to answer a few questions.

Could you please let me know if you can help and I will forward the document to you. Many Thanks Rob Biggs
  8. Reswati man much appreciation for the youtube video, I currently live in Cardiff 'a great city' really quite big on rock music and decent bands, everything Plant said was right though a certain look to a certain club. Kiwi JPJ fair play not many people go for him as the fave member but I feel its really interesting you like him as you feel personally connected to his actual life persona, rather then on stage.
  9. Cheers for the link some really cool tattoos on their, have to admit its making really tempted to get the symbols down my leg.
  10. Recently joined this forum, its great that their are communities online that fans can discuss stories, nostalgia and other related material. Im 24 discovered Zep when I was about 19, a late developer into real music and sound before hip hop destriyed the musical landscape par a few modern bands. My favourite member has always been Plant something about his on stage persona 'though only seen through a variety of videos', blogs and old TV shows from the 70's. The question is who is your fav member of the band, have you got a favourite?
  11. Hi all hope your well? Hi does anyone have a Led Zep tattoo, How does it make you feel to have a band symbol as an extension of your self?
