  1. Yeah, I had been wondering whether it was from the early Zeppelin days or if it was a Yardbirds-era photo. Then my boyfriend said he got that guitar after LZ formed, and later, it got stolen (not sure what year). Also, in some versions of it, you can see that he has long hair. So I'm guessing it's from '69 - '71 or something like that. Anyway, it's my favorite picture of him. And it's a beautiful Les Paul.
  2. Never mind. I just found it.
  3. Aaagh! My hard drive died last week and I lost the pic of Jimmy that was my wallpaper. Now I can't find it anywhere. I got it from a slideshow that someone posted in this thread, but the slideshow has changed and doesn't include that pic anymore. It was this one but larger and without the text: I need to find it again because it was inspiring me to play guitar more and take my music more seriously. Does anyone have it or know where I might find it? --Kim
  4. Thank you for thinking of those of us who can't be there!
  5. I agree--who cares what his hair looks like? He's a great guitar player; it's not like he's just famous for his hair or something.
  6. I prefer for bands not to spend time talking when they could be rocking. But if they want to take a few breaks for some talking, I would listen attentively. That is if I was going to the show.
  7. You're right. I'm wrong. I think I got the White Stripes mixed up with another band like that. I should have just recommened ILCK as a similar band. Now I need to edit my previous post because I realize it's full of errors.
  8. Yeah, the Undertones are great, and I forgot to add them to my list. As for Radio Birdman, I recommend Radios Appear as the record to start with. If you end up liking Radio Birdman, you might want to listen to The Scientists as well. They're a similar Australian band from the same era. I actually like them better.
  9. I always loved rock n roll, but my parents wouldn't let me listen to it. They tried to make me listen to jazz, classical, and show tunes instead. When I was 11, they finally gave in and gave me a radio for Christmas. I listened to all the hard rock and classic rock I could get away with. Led Zeppelin was an instant favorite. When I was 13, my parents finally allowed me to get a few CDs. I got Led Zeppelin I, and then III. I listened to those CDs all the time. I got other CDs too, but I sold them so I could secretly buy an electric guitar. Now I'm 28. I collect records and guitars. My whole life revolves around rock n roll and my parents still don't accept it.
  10. As a record collector, I will always love vinyl and prefer original pressings. Anyone can hear original pressings of Led Zeppelin records if they have a turntable and an eBay account. Because Led Zeppelin was a popular band at the time the records came out, many copies were pressed. That means that original pressings are easy to find and should not cost more than a new pressing (unless it is something rare or autographed). If you spend some time on eBay, you'll probably find some original pressings that are in excellent condition and are a lot cheaper than new records.
  11. It's a lot worse if it's not on his strumming hand. How could he not need all the fingers on his left hand to play?
  12. Sorry, Jonesy. I have to ask about you. Does anyone know if he's a member?
  13. I believe it was the Immortal Lee County Killers.
  14. Here's a short list, just the ones that come to mind right now. Black Sabbath Judas Preist Slayer Motorhead Venom Iron Maiden Bathory Danzig Macabre Carpathian Forest Nunslaughter Rat Salad
  15. Does anyone like the Immortal Lee County Killers? They sound kind of like the White Stripes' first record but faster, with more distortion. The guitar player, Chet the Cheetah, calls the sound Fucked Up Blues. Fucked Up Blues = blues played by punk rockers, which means it's stripped down and has a lot of distortion (a better definition can be found on the ILCK page above). Like The White Stripes, some incarnations of the Immortal Lee County Killers have been just a guitar player + a drummer. Chet's pre-ILCK band, The Quadrajets are also pretty cool.
  16. Yesterday, I went to the guitar store and bought: 1) a Bigsby for my SG 2) 3 packs of strings 3) picks 4) dropped off the Mosrite to get its neck straightened
  17. The Hex Dispensers: self-titled LP The Hex Dispensers/Haunted George: split 7" (Forest Ray Colson + Pile o' Meat) EDIT: I forgot to mention Immortal Lee County Killers: two 7"s
  18. Seconded. Ozzy wrote some great lyrics too. He deserves more credit for that. And of course Tony Iommi created the metal guitar sound, which changed everything.
  19. Yeah, I like them. I was just listening to one of their records the other day. They were primarily inspired by Devo. They didn't make my list because I only included bands from the 60s and 70s.
  20. Nebula They sound like the first Zeppelin Record + Black Sabbath. They're considered stoner rock. The guitar player, Eddie Glass, is incredible. Nebula on MySpace Official Nebula Site
  21. OK, here my list. I'm focusing on the early punk/proto-punk bands in order to keep it to readable length. The stuff I like from today is not well-known anyway. Screaming Lord Sutch MC5 The Sonics Pretty Things The Stooges The Thirteenth Floor Elevators VU NY Dolls Rocket From the Tombs The Dictators Suicide The Ramones The Cramps The Damned The Heartbreakers The Dead Boys Devo The Screamers The Germs X The Avengers Television The Misfits The Dicks The Birthday Party Radio Birdman The Scientists The Big Boys Eater Bad Brains Black Flag The Bags Roky Erickson The Vamps The Mystery Dates Patti Smith The Buzzcocks Crime The Zeros The Nuns I know I'm leaving out some important ones.
  22. I love that Les Paul with a Bigsby! Seeing him play that on the 2003 DVD inspired me to put a Bigsby on my SG. I'm glad he replaced it. If I had to choose one guitar to see him play, it would be that Les Paul, but I'd really like to see him play a variety of different ones, including the double neck and the Danelectro. There are certain songs that require the Danelectro sound.
  23. When the Levee Breaks is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin song.
