  1. It's the sound of a mature band making great music. Too bad it suffers from reputation. I get the impression people too young to have heard it when released have prejudiced opinions about it before they give it a chance. IMO it has some of their most thought out songs on it.
  2. The sound issue seems to be a worldwide problem. I took a friend, a 69 yr old that's not a fan, and even he complained of the low volume.
  3. Saw it at Landmark in Denver. After a slow start and many audience shout outs for more volume it got off the ground around For Your Life. I felt the theater sound was pretty good and the nice big chairs were comfortable at the Landmark. That they have a bar there made it better and it was something that kept me there because before long I started losing interest, IMO the film isn't much of a departure or improvement over the bootlegs. Which is a good or bad thing depending on how you view it. Consequently I left after Stairway because I felt as if I was watching a movie I'd seen too many times. Which is true, I dissected that thing more than I should have and obviously knew how it ends. If I have a complaint it was the audience in that particular theater. I felt out of place among the head banging, artificially rowdy over 50 crowd. I really didn't connect with the film or the vibe around me. More about how far I've drifted from LZ than anything. I'm not the hardcore fan I once was. By the end of the night I felt like I had attended the rock and roll version of a Star Trek convention. A large percentage of the people there looked like they still live in Mom's basement despite being middle aged. Probably won't buy the DVD unless there is a special edition that offers more than the O2 show.
  4. I'm sure I'll get the le(a)d out of my ass and get down there. I made a dinner res as well a few days ago so I may as well have a night. Pretty sure the theater has a bar so I'll skip the popcorn for some cabernet.
  5. I have tix to the Denver showing but not sure I want to go. Not sure why but not real excited about it now that show day is here. Just been in a funk all week. Need to find some motivation.
  6. Without a doubt Hendrix stole some of their thunder, though the reality was nobody could contend with him. But Cream was for all practical purposes dead and buried before Zep even got of the ground. The agreed to disband in early '68.
  7. Happy Birthday, hope it was a great one:-)

  8. Happy birthday danelectro dude! Rock on, sir!

  9. Love 'em. GE Smith played great guitar with them.
  10. LOL! JP plays scales and barre chords. I wouldn't read too much into that article. My translation is "Please don't bore me with the usual guitar geek questions. Let's move on". It's not happenstance his fingers moved to specific places on the guitar. You don't stumble into that. Repetition is another word for practice. You don't have to sit down with a instructor or book to practice.
  11. Really depends on the climate where you live. Here I can get by with a soft cloth and water. Dryer climates may require an oil based conditioner for hardwood fretboards, bridges other parts. Humid climates may mean regular cleaning for hardware to avoid corrosion. Most furniture cleaners and polish contain wax and chemicals that may damage the finish. I would avoid. I'd stick to products specifically sold for wooden instruments. Reviews are telling. Most of the good ones are quick to mention their product doesn't contain harmful additives, wax, fragrance, detergents, abrasives, corrosive stuff etc. Edit: Should mention I use Dr. Ducks. But it's the old formula. The new stuff, I think the company changed hands, sucks. I've had the same bottle since '92. Still have about 1/4 left.
  12. I have quite a few live Faces DVD's. Did the unmentionable and paid for what are clearly bootlegs but justfied it after years of not seeing a single clip. The SFS was one, this was about ten years ago before it made the rounds on TV. I also have a complete '73 show, the '70 Marquee show, a '71 show and bits and pieces of some other early stuff. Of course I have the commercially available Faces DVD's too. All show Wood in fine form.
  13. Worth mentioning is the vast majority if not all recent Olympic performances are canned to prevent technical difficulties during the ceremony.
  14. No, the radio thing was just an example of an early experience. LZ was one of the first "love affairs" I had with music. I bought every album, dissected everything from the art to the lyrics. The allure lasted quite some time. I scoured record shows and thrift shops for vinyl boots, had the Dannmarks stuff on VHS in the early 80's. I was pretty hardcore. Though I came to LZ via Hendrix, he was my first exposure to hard rock. For me LZ was a gateway band not a stopping point. All of the 60's-70's artists\bands were. Once I started working back from there I started losing my appreciation for some, not all. Since LZ came into the scene late their value plummeted quite a bit. I'll stop there because I don't want people to think this is some passive aggressive attempt to undermine them.
  15. I play guitar, bass, harp, keys, drums, sing a bit...Lately I've been rockin' the two '83 SQ series Squier's below. Fantastic guitars.
