  1. Are the dates correct? Thought JP changed his black dragon into a white one.
  2. I love this photo.It could not be ALS cause they played it not at the beginning of the shows of this tour. It might not even be "Sick again".Because they played this song directly after "The Song remains the same".So maybe JP had used his doubleneck as he did in Knebworth.
  3. What a hard question to answere."Levee" is real great coz it sets a diffrence to the material before but I vote for "I m gonna crawl". I don´t like the album very much but this song shows old and eternal power.A bright light at the end of a mean album.
  4. In 1980 Ted Nugent told me he only liked the "old" Zeppelin records.
  5. Alot of people consider Scott Columbus of "Manowar" being the best heavy drummer of our days. He told me that Led Zep 1 and especially (my favorite) "How many more times" were the most important influence for him when he started.
  6. Led Zepplin was a vanguard for music .But for my taste they should have published much more in the past . I agree with the thoughts of Jimmy against this. But this is a strong medium of our days and gives a good chance to the kids to get in contact with the music of Zep. Also-(after his highprice output of his book)- the idear of making immense money may change the thinking of JP.
  7. What a strange list.Bonzo no1 is fair but the rest?!? Often these votings were manipulated.And the result smells a bit like that. --I talked to an old musician who was even onstage with the Beatles and he said that there was a saying in Europe in the 60ths:You wont find alot of bass players being as good as Mccartney.But also you would not find alot of drummers being as bad as Ringo.--I like him playing the Beatles songs but this was supposed to be a voting for drummers.The Police in opposit to Carl Palmer and Alan White??.
  8. Right ! Even John used only one timpani during the tour 1980.But I think that this did not work perfectly.Apart from everything else LZ is not real punk. So Jimmy has left highlights (drumsolo) and alot of glamour (dragon clothes) but did not get the reaction he wanted (I saw 3 concerts of the tour). I doubt that he would not have changed that again if they would have toured the US lateron.So he used the Nazi clothes during the first gigs of the 1977 tour. Probably to provoke.Than he changed his clothes very soon....
  9. I know they could not play everything but there as was enough time for "Battle of evermore" and "Going to California."Any idear?
  10. When reading about the new "Walk of fame" in Birmingham I was astonished how many great musicians came from this area.(RP,JB;Ozzy,Ionnie;Slade...).Just wonder if you know places where you find alot of great musicians that have been grown up there.What is the diffrence to other places ?
  11. This is real fun.I wonder if there is also a main message behind the whole stories. I think I had a comic of Ozzy once. Also I still look for a good drawer for a project too.So contact me if you know any. Mine would not be a Zeppelin comic but I could imagen alot of new comics about them comming out soon with all the modern technic that could be used for it today
  12. I know a hughe fan of her who even organized a tour with her a few years ago. He was impressed by her dark power and said you can not compare her with any other woman. It was the time when JPJ was around with "Diamond".I told him about this strong woman and (after he saw a clip of them )he had to agree that she had alot of the real power of Tura.
  13. Thanks alot for the link. The material is nice but not mindblowing.When I heard about this giant lineup I expected they compose a mixture of: "Close to the edge" and "Dazed and Confused".This would have been a new masterpiece. So maybe we are lucky that they stopped this project in a short time.
  14. I know they play Zepplinmusic more often in the radios of US than anywhere else.Radio in our days is a brainwashing and commercial manipulating factory. The same story as the one being described in the "Qween-musical". Apart from diffrent other reasons music is not suitable for this.
  15. They had problems without Bonzo. If there is someone else singing ,than there would be only 2 members left. .......In the end you may end up listenning to a complete coverband... Not only that.Ok, people like to hear the old numbers but I doubt it that it was a good idear of "Qween" to gig with Rogers.I liked Paul´s voice much more than the one of Freddy but this was a big break for me..
  16. His energy when playing and moving onstage.His search for new dimensions and the combination of diffrent styles. There is alot more to write. One main reason is for me that he could bring long instrumentals to the ears of a hughe audience that won´t listen to stuff like this in common.And not to forget :his magic.
  17. You named alot of things I could also mention.It is realley the combination of them.The solo projects where not bad but not as hot as the old Zeppelin music. So it was the right decision not to continue with a new drummer.Growing up with their music I was in deep meditations when hearing the violin bow sound... With their light energy and the constant search for new musicall dimensions LZ had powered my own intrest for new idears too .
  18. Had there ever been a compet. for the best Zep-photo?
  19. I think it all depends on the way you want to make music.If you don´t have a pain in your fingers and you reached a certain level of playing than it is up to what sounds you want to produce.I think I was a bit more "Super slinky" when being younger. But by now I gained alot of weight also.
  20. ALS and "Tea for one" are not on the list.But this is a very hard question anywhere.
  21. I was in Berlin . I think it was a spontanious decision of Jimmy talking to Robert.But not the best one cause his guitar was out of tune and he was helpless onstage at this moment.
  22. I had a list of questions about his lyrics.But he shattered everything saying that all this is just ment as a joke. OK they had to do interviews and don ´t want to do it all the time.But what could I do in this situation ? I felt mocked.
  23. This might be a good answere.Hendrix was hitting the top of the hitlist like Page/Zep. But I feel a bit unconfortable that May would not be well known without Freddy. Maybe somebody in here knows a place where to find all the great unknown heroes.
  24. Being a guitar god myselve I was knocked out by speed.This has changed.Up to a certain point it is not sensefull to try to get faster like boring youtube stuff..... Jimmy Page said you got to put your personality into your playing.He is right.Hendrix was a big performer not a poser but the opposite to Clapton f.e onstage. The late 60th were a so called time of change. So in the end it is -all together -a big myth Hendrix becomming and remaining the best of all times. I don´t wanne talk mean about this great player but think about reasons for the votings. Also Page is a bandman while Hendrix was the only frontman of his band. Another thing is that this votings are often manipulated,Have a guess how often I was voted being the best one ? There is alot of money involved in the music scene. There won´t be an argue between the recordcompanies if the winner is always a legend and dead guy who is no danger for the own product anymore. Howe was often voted for being the best one .I think Rolling stones mag.77. His performance I saw 5 months ago was a sad one. Wonder how we gonna play if we reach his age.
  25. Think Robert said that they were too old for the running numbers.Is this true? Any other idears why they did not play ALS (their best song for me and alot of others)?
