  1. There's a lot of truth in this article.Page's best and most creative years were with Zeppelin.After that,his output simply didn't have the same creativity in it.That's a fact.If you watch carefully the post-Zep careers of Jones and Plant,they moved on.Jimmy didn't. It's logical since he was on fire during the seventies as a producer,songwriter and player and after the death of Bonham,he couldn't move on.


  2. As ledzepfilm posted, I was fortunate to attend the May 31, June 2, and June 3(originally scheduled for May 30) shows. But I want to let other people share their thoughts...I don't want to hog this thread. Besides I have already shared my experiences at those shows here and on the timeline.

    Duly noted, Walter! Good catch. I shall be summarily flogged by violin bows.

    I agree with your views on the setlist...in fact, that was going to be the focus of my next contribution to this thread.

    Oh,then I will check some of the posts you have uploaded :)


  3. Sorry for bringing up the topic again,but I can't help it :P . Look what he says about David Gilmour's playing:

    ''There is one major defect about Floyd - whether it be Barrett-led Floyd or Waters-led Floyd (and I don't even mention the Gilmour-led Floyd). These guys are (and were) very average musicians and so-so songwriters. Let's face it, the group never had a true musical virtuoso. Waters' bass playing is just okay, Wright and Mason don't qualify above your average session musicians, and Barrett's talents, you must admit, weren't in the sphere of picking the guitar. As for Gilmour, well, I just don't like the guy's guitar - I consider it generic and soulless. All of his 'classic' solos are so mathematically precise, counted out and adjusted that it almost makes me sick. He's no Steve Howe, and he's not even Steve Hackett. He's Dave, like we all know him: slow, meticulous and calculated. He's got some truly great guitar passages in his backpack (my favourite work of his is mostly located on Dark Side and Animals), but he also has a lot of pointless noodling, and he often selects the kind of generic highly distorted, yet not really 'heavy' guitar tone that I can't call anything but 'musical dentistry'. Sorry, Dave.''

    I mean,ok,I don't expect him to praise gilmour's playing since he doesn't like it,but really,''generic and soulless''??Also look what he says about Page's style:

    the Stones are the pinnacle of rock'n'roll, having demonstrated far more creativity within the genre than almost any of their contemporaries or followers - the vivid, wonderfully syncopated, 'breathing', 'dangerous' guitar stylistics of Keith Richards is far more impressive than the technically perfect, but cold and rigid style of Jimmy Page, and is a near-perfect embodiment of the 'rock'n'roll spirit

    really?


  4. I'm more into 1969-1973 actually,because they just did better shows back then.1975 is the worst year for Plant and 1977 is for the most part not very good.The great shows are fucking great and they have a great atmosphere as well as great setlists.But there is something about the earlier shows and i believe it has a lot to do with the band being still very fresh and full of ideas.So,early live but only by a very small margin :)


  5. hey,guys and girls,i want to find somewhere the EVSD Release of The Earls Court show,1975,24th but i can't find it anywhere....does anybody know about this release?i saw some songs of this release on youtube and it had great quality(here's rock'n'roll and sick again...

    )so,where can I find a site to download it?????smile.gif
