  1. When: Oct 17, 7:15 pm Where: Empire Extra Theater, Dieppe NB about a 10 minute drive. With Whom: My daughter, mother, brother and niece...more to come since I bought 8 tickets. How much: $14.95 per ticket Anticipation: off the chart! I have been seriously distracted for the past 2 months (actually it's been since March), I was out with my niece when she tells me about the announcement for our city. A great "pick me up"! I was even wearing one of my Zep t-shirts at the time. We headed for my sisters house for a family gathering and immediately went online to order. My brother, from Toronto, changed his flight home just to join us. He was our families first official Zep fan many years ago. It's in our newest, largest, biggest screen, best seat, best sound system theater. I've been told the best in eastern Canada. Giddy-up!
  2. We have Pheasants around here too, though not native to these parts. Here the male and female are easy to distinguish. Like ducks the male is very colorful and the female is quite plain. So unlike the human race...our females are the most beautiful.
  3. Should I ever meet Jimmy I expect I would show him the respect. A meeting, beit just a sighting or a pleasant exchange would certainly satisfy. So, I now have my tickets. Just found out yesterday (don't know if it was just announced here yesterday, I have been very preoccupied lately). It is showing at our newest theater, just finished this year. Largest screen, best seats, reserved seating and...the best sound system in eastern Canada!! I bought 8 tickets, my mother, daughter, brother and niece are going with me. All fans. Now, if you do the math you will know that I have a couple of spare tickets...anyone?
  4. Hotel Transylvania! Hey, I needed something light on the head. And I needed to laugh, which I did. I took my sister, her kids, my daughter and my brothers son. Ages 9 to forty something. We all laughed. Out loud too. This had child humor as well as adult humor. Not X rated, just humor that an adult is likely to understand.
  5. What a great bunch we have here! Thanks all! LZG...shelling out for tires is painful indeed. But doesn't the car ride so nice after the new ones are on?

    Oh CANADA!

    Here's hoping everyone can be with loved ones.
  7. Many thanks to all. Family and music will be a big help getting through this. And we all know that time is a great healer but we will always be left with a scar.
  8. Thank you so much to everyone. It is certainly the "Good Times" that I think of to help get me through. Good people here. Yes there is.
  9. I lost my Dad this morning. Sorry for the downer folks, but after coming to this site for a couple of years now it was the first place I could think of at this time of the morning. I know some of you have gone through what I am going through right now. Not wanting you to re-live it though, I apologise for that. Isn't Led Zeppelin great?
  10. Move on, quickly, unless you don't mind some rambling. At 4:35 this morning my Dad lost his battle with cancer. Led Zeppelin is "MY" greatest band in the world!! I remember hearing about John Bonham's death. I was at a friend's house, he was a big fan, spent hours on his guitar learning Stairway to Heaven. The news made me imagine a stairway to heaven, I could see John walking up the steps with his drumsticks in hand. I saw my father walk those steps this morning. I always liked Zep but back in the 70's and 80's it was Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band for me with a healthy dose of AC/DC. So, at the time John's death did not mean much to me. Many years later, for reasons I don't recall, I heard Caroselambra for the first time. First thought was "hey, I like that". Then "who the hell is playing that?" That was the song that made look deeper into this band. I always loved music but it was on the radio, in the background, something at parties. Led Zeppelin is something I listen to. It is "something" to me. Led Zeppelin is what I wanted, no, needed to hear this morning! They aren't just a band. They aren't just music. They are not God's. They are the greatest, as I discovered, because of something for everything!! They are not a rock band, nor a jazz band or blues. They are Led Zeppelin!! Yes, I have Zeppelin playing right now! Why am I here? On this site! Typing words to people on the internet just hours after losing my Dad?!?!?! Because most, if not all of you understand! If no one reads this, so what. That is not my reason for doing this. Don't worry. I'll be with family all day. They are all at their homes getting some rest right now so I'll head over later. For now Zep is keeping me company. brb...need more kleenex... So, I've played them when driving that gorgeous twisting country road in the fall with the leaves at their brightest and now while sitting here mourning the loss of my Dad. They have me covered for all occasions! Whatever mood or situation I am faced with. If I need a musical fix Led Zeppelin has it covered. My Dad won 3 previous battles with cancer and survived a massive stroke. I hope I have even a fraction of his strength! Rest in peace Dad...I love you. Thank you Zep.
  11. As said above...no worries. I have a couple of guitars so I tend to leave one or two in that alternate tuning for a while, saves some time. One is currently tuned for The Rain Song. Not that tuning takes all that long, sometime it is that you just don't have much time. Change away. Humidity and temperature changes will have more of an affect.
  12. Anyone try some font speculation on what the "Three" will look like? My guess is the font on the III album cover (I know, duh!) Capital "T", lower case "hree". The e's underlined by elongated circles as opposed to the line or dot from "FIVE" and "FOUR".
  13. Thanks for posting this link!! I was in Italy last month. To see Venice and Pisa this way is spectacular. I'll be sharing this with my family.
  14. Thank you for sharing Kimbersays! I shall live vicariously through you...if I may?
  15. So last night I saw Slash. The opening band was "Monster Truck" I liked them right from the start. Turned up too loud but some good rockers. Anyone who may think R&R is dead should look these guys up. Slash came on stage at 9 wearing a concert tee from the opening band...cool! He is a hard working rocker, sweats like all get-out. There were puddles on the stage. It was general admission so things were a bit tight if you wanted a close-up, which I did, but far enough away so's not to get splashed. Once again volume, to me at least and a few others I spoke to afterwards, was too high. It looses something when it is overdone. This was in a small venue so if the audience was quiet you could hear some one on stage talking. Lots of great music, a few GNR tunes as expected. Myles Kennedy and his band did a nice job of keeping up with Slash, who played non stop till about a quarter past 11. My hearing has returned and my memory's of the concert are locked in and well worth remembering. A great show.
  16. I would gladly participate. Indeed my thoughts are with him.
  17. Any one been to Nepisiguit Falls? Just got back from there. What a beauty of a spot. 100+ year old hydro electric dam and fantastic scenery along the river...in the middle of friggin nowhere!!!!

  18. I'm home! My vacation is over! 3 weeks in Italy and Greece...done. Back to work tomorrow. Did get a nice LZ t-shirt though
  19. Sad news. Just a reminder to me to continue to get out and see/witness every great band that I can. We just don't know who is next. Glad I got to see them live.
  20. Just came by to see if anyone else noticed "The Wanton Song" resemblance...apparently so.
  21. I didn't read Angels and Demons. I saw the movie so I thought reading the book was now pointless. Then again...The Da Vinci Code was a much better read than the movie....
  22. PBS "My Music" The British Beat Lulu is on right now...wow...aging very well!! 64 now. Now the Trogs...Wild Thing.
  23. I'm not a novel reader, first complete novel wasn't till I was about 25. I've since read about 6! That's about one every four years. The Da Vinci Code for me was the proverbial page turner. Took me less than two weeks, all others were 1-2 months.

    FULL MOON

    Hope to get a few shots of it tonight. Last time didn't work out so well, just a big blurr. Need to set my camera up correctly to take the shot. Raining right now but expected to be partly cloudy over night.
  25. Thanks for sharing that Max! Would love to see a video of them. Well done. A lot of different flavors.
