  1. And for the cover of the book editor chose that disaster from 1988 in MSG. So, judging by the cover, no thanks, I'll pass this one.
  2. I don't need to know them in person, I have my ears and zillion bootlegs out there. For example, there's a big difference between Los Angeles Forum on June 25, 1972 and Earls Court in 1975. In studio, that's another story.
  3. 1969-1973 no heavy drugs, 1973-1980 everything that could be swallowed, sniffed, injected or smoked. I only listen live Led Zepp from 1969-1973. Shame about their performance from 1975-1980, as my fav album is Physical Graffiti. But that's what we got.
  4. Led Zeppelin was a band that when they played well, they were the best in the world, mostly in the first years, somewhat in 1973, but after 1973, quite a few performances were good as earlier concerts. Plant's voice during 1975 was quite hard to listen to and sometimes very embarrassing. The 1980 tour was unnecessary, I think Zeppelin came to their creative end in the 80's even without John Bonham's death. Plant's voice was far cry from glory days in 1971 and In Through the Out door was not a great album. Also, they should did rehearsal for at least week in 1985 for Live Aid, come clean and tried to be as good as Queen, without Phil Collins, same thing for the MSG in 1988. In many ways Zeppelin was inconsistent band, without middle ground, they were like gods at good nights, or deeply embarrassing on bad nights.
  5. Writer David Krebs made the case in Rolling Stone that Led Zeppelin’s live performances of “Whole Lotta Love” were the loudest on stage in 1970. But the year before that, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association has already proven Zep’s big sound credibility by measuring a performance of “Heartbreaker” at 130 dB.
  6. My thoughts exactly...missed opportunity. Oh well, let's wait for 100 years anniversary 🙂
  7. I must say that I am a little disappointed with this book. Design, print and format are excellent, but the majority of the photos are average, some of these pictures are really good, but many are technically bad (out of focus, poor composition, blurred). The print is excellent, so even the bad photo does not look that bad. Yes, many of them are unseen, but apart from that, they don't have the artistic, visual, impact for the book that should be the mother of all the photo books regarding the band. What is the meaning of the photograph where Plant is with some older people, probably homeless, who are drinking? Or the photo across the entire page of an anonymous police officer with a cork (or something like that) in his ear (yes, I know, they played loud). The majority of the best Zepp photos we have already seen in the other books, magazines, here, on the Internet and so on. Looks like they're scraping the bottom of the can. And it seems to me, I have to look at it again, that there are more photos from O2 in 2007 than from their 1975-1977 period. I like the book, I enjoy it, but it could be way better, IMO, for this important anniversary it's a missed chance. In a way, it's like the Zepp's 1975 concert, Plant can't sing properly, but the rest of them are good, but you know they were better in 1971.
  8. I find it boring, all companion discs, Page is selling out his old band.
  9. These are the covers from the old magazines. They just put the name of the band and the title of the album. Not an original artwork.
  10. Dancing Days, Battle Of Evermore, When the levee breaks, Over the hills and far away (only for the versions after 1972 because Plant couldn't hit the high notes anymore), Ten Years Gone, Sick Again, In The Evening
  11. Coda In Through The Out Door Presence HOTH LZII LZI LZIII LZIV Physical Graffiti
  12. My favorite LZ songs: Hot Dog, Hots on for nowhere, Living Lovin' Maid (she's just a woman), Hats off to Roy Harper, Boogie with Stu, D'yer mak'er
  13. Whole lotta love, Kashmir, Stairway to heaven, Achilles last stand, No Quarter, In The Light...
