  1. They came sealed in a brown wrapper with the plastic over it. Mine did anyway. You can see by the poor "sealing" that it's been resealed. I agree with Mr. Jones. Bout $50. If you're willing to spend $600 on the wife go to Rick Barrett's site. His stuff is 100% authentic. He may still even have the collection of all 6 In Through The Out Doors. There are are six album different covers.
  2. dave grohl has no place on the list let alone in the top 5. Compare him to the rest of the list and he is as I've always said, a hack. He SURE as hell shouldn't be above Alex Van Halen. Ian Paice? Cozy Powell, anyone? Oh that's right the PEOPLE decided. There goes what little faith I had left in people. By the way, has anyone ever seen Tom Green and dave grohl in the same room at the same time? hahahahahahahaha Hell has officially frozen over when Charlie Watts places higher than Cozy and Ian.
  3. I'm going to see them tomorrow night(10/12) at the Wachovia Center in Philly. I'm skiiping Buck Cherry. I wonder if he does All Lit Up when opening for Kiss? The main riff is a complete rip of Shock Me. LOL
  4. Well it may have made more sense for him to do a bump BEFORE Moby Dick. My experience anyway.
  5. Well, I don't know about anyone else but when I play Stairway To Heaven backwards, it sounds like Stairway To Heaven backwards.
  6. Well, it's been a while since I've posted one of my favorite lines so this thread seems to beg for it...........FUCK dave grohl!
  7. I was at Live Aid up front for the Zep set and I've told the story here already in another thread some time ago so I won't go into it all again but I will say that unless you were there, you can't begin to understand what an occasion it was and how enormous the vibe was. 90+ thousand people standing, cheering, stomping, chanting, crying, and singing throughout the the whole set. The sun setting during Stairway. The ENTIRE stadium singing the final line of Stairway in unison. Fuck the bootleg audio/video. You had to BE there to experience the true essence of it all. Also, when Bill Graham came out after Zep, the masses were chanting "We want Zep" and wanted nothing to do with CSNY when they came out. Graham says to the crowd. "I know! I know! We want them too but they've left!"
  8. Love the Speed King because you have a good amount of control because there's no springs, etc. It does what your foot does but I've broken about 6 of 'em both new and vintage. I changed to DW 9000 but broke that at the heel hinge. I now have a Tama and just broke that too. I'm hell on a foot pedal.LOL
  9. '90 5 pc. Ludwig silver sparkle and Yamaha DTS Express electronic kit w/upgraded bass drum
  10. Er, um, uh.. I know this ain't a Stones or Faces forum but Woody didn't solo either so Page isn't the only one that bowed out at HOF. I was under the impression that he was bowing out to let Beck have his moment. Anyone remember the ARMS concert? Page certainly participated in the trading off there and I think he stepped up quite nicely(better than Beck IMO), especially given the shape he was in. My two cents........
  11. I second that, Knebby. Pretty long read only to come to the same conclusion. Hope you're well. Been a while. I tread lightly on the board these days.
  12. I haven't read through all the posts here and I'm a self-taught drummer so I know absolutely dick about technical terms but I have been playing Bonzo's style for over 26 years. I believe the "triplets" being referred to here are actually "foot rolls". The break in GTBT is a foot roll, not a triplet. I believe a triplet is more like the end of Rock and Roll or Moby Dick. Tom-bass-tom(or Tom-tom-bass if you like). I may be wrong but the foot work is definitely not a triplet( to my knowledge anyway). The few replies I've read mention the difficulty level and some break it all down into very tedious analytical parts and that's ok but it comes down to the bottom line of you either have "it" or you don't. If you have it, it really isn't difficullt at all. It just comes over a period of time. Not sayin it's something you can do day one by ANY means, but if you don't have the natural groove and ear, you'll never get it from lessons. Well, I guess obviously you could learn it with lessons but it would be very obvious that it's not coming natural. My suggestion is to play along with the songs to pick it up. That's the only way you'll know if you've got it.
  13. I have. I'm not going for a look at all. The ability to play the songs are much more important to me than whether someone looks like Robert, Jimmy, or JPJ. I can't see myself saying "Well, that was just the best damn live Dazed solo I've heard but you look nothing like Jimmy so run along" or "You can hit all the Plant notes incredibly but your hair's short. Here, try a wig." LOL Ya know? I place no importance on looks. Flat out mastery of the tunes is what I'm looking for with this project. I would want people with stage presence of course. I'm not focusing on any particular "era" or "tour". More like a Led Zeppelin jukebox. I think it would be cool to occasionally break out a specific set list from a certain tour here and there but advertise it as such in advance. I'm not sure if this answers your queston. Maybe I'll call it Led Jukebox. LMAO! Hmm wait a minute.....WAIT A MINUTE!
  14. I'd always thought they were 2B's.
  15. I agree on the snare. I searched for years to get that "pop" and the Supraphonic iis all that and then some. As far as the vistalites, I never really like their sound much and for the price they seem more like a novelty kit. Bonzo was always very particular about is snare sound and you can hear him on some boots over the soundboard mics telling the techs to turn it up in the monitor. Split a bass drum? Yikes? I thought my breaking Paistes and shredding hi-hats was bad. Nice work! Well, I assume you lost your drummer. Fly me over and let's get it on! LOL
  16. Sweet! That is a major jam. Better than coffee. Zeppelin always livens me up on the road. I probably burn more gas as well. LOL Trampled Underfoot drops my MPG to 2 city and 4 highway. LOL
  17. I thought of that and Tight But Loose but I thought it would be a bit too vague of a Zep reference for most people. Not on here of course. LOL Thought of Bron-Yr-Aur as well just to hear people butcher it. LOL
  18. Nope only Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, or Jethro Dull puts me to sleep. Really dangerous if it comes on the radio while I'm driving. Many near misses............
  19. You're a guitar player? I was misled by your username. Thought you were a drummer.
  20. By FAR the best Zep tribute I've seen! Giutarist is perfect! I think someone has actually TSRTS more times than I have! LOL
  21. Wow! Great kits! I wish I had the funds to put one together as well. I'll get there dammit! LOL I did manage to get the 1969 Supraphonic snare and it's fuckin' EAR splitting! Great job on the kits. They look fantastic!
