  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. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I believe it was the Immortal Lee County Killers.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. When the Levee Breaks is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin song.
  14. 28. I've been listening to Led Zeppelin since I was 11. The first record I owned was Led Zeppelin I.
