  1. I remember seeing Virginia Wolf with the firm (Mean Business tour), and I've seen a few of his "Bonham videos". I thought it was cool he did the Zeppelin Atlantic Records thing, and toured with Jimmy Page, after that really didn't hear too much about him. Seeing him on That Metal Show, he sounds like he's really grown up over the years. He was fantastic at the 02 show, hard some hard shoes to fill and he was brilliant, I'm hoping his Led Zep experience comes here to Atlanta-would love to check it out.

    When asked--what's one of the benefits of being a relative in the wold's greatest rock and roll band?, something you've done which stands out growing up

    Jason-well, how many people can say Led Zeppelin played at their wedding? (great answer!!-That Metal Show)

  2. And again the debate goes on..., I used to really love this song, I heard it once said the "beauty of a song is in it's simplicity". But then I got caught up in that Jimmy's a Satanist (never believed it, if he was it's his problem not mine), Jimmy practiced black magic (sure pal-I was born at night time too). Jimmy's fascination with Aleister Crowley-the words were lifted from one of his witchcraft manuscripts (hmm-that's interesting, but still see no real reference). None the less, I become cautious of it, but still admired it's brilliance, and the mystique behind it.

    As for Mr Page and the rumors, he has a fascination with the occult, so do I-does that make me a Satanist-not even close, not gonna turn this into a religious debate but let's just say, the more you know about your enemies-the easier it is to understand them. That's my view, as well as Jimmy has his, practice witchcraft and sorcery? Doubt it-that rumor probably got started cause of the "Crowley thing"--but again where does the meaning of Stairway... figure into this, it doesn't.

    I did find something interesting, there is a castle over there, rumored to be haunted-if you listen at times, you can hear a piper playing, and at times a lady with a dark cloak will appear from time to time, she even has a statue in the front. This statue and the folklore behind may've inspired Jimmy with some of it's lyrics--again "may have", only he and Robert Plant know for sure. I read the lyrics and I see a lost soul trying to find their way. The devil is a deceiver, and she wants to make sure she gets it right, not go the "lost route". Voices of people and smoke through the trees-obviously she's not alone, words have 2 meanings-make sure she gets the right meaning, 2 paths-you still have time to change the road you're on, telling us to "get it right"? I could go on, but won't, I will say this, just sit back and let your mind wander, and let the interpretation come as you here it. "and it makes me wonder" It sure does and I'll leave it at that.

  3. I'm jealous!! I got the same thing at the same company store and mine cost $32, small price to pay for an awesome show, only 2 deluxes left-now there's only only 1, plenty of cd sets, and 2 cd/1 dvd sets left (and blue rays), was 2 busy enjoying 13 hour Zep marathon on "the river" yesterday. What a celebration for the Celebration Day release.

    "Hey Mick! you recording this!! Good, haven't played it that well since 1910"--Robert Plant after Since I've Been Loving You rehearsal.

  4. Has a few "great" songs on it, may sound awesome cause the material is fresh, not lots of airplay like the rest. But their best work? Not really, now that you've got their entire collection check out their real early works and if you get a chance try to find some Yardbirds stuff, that's where their roots started. (Live Yardbirds featuring Jimmy Page is scary-it has Zeppelin all over it, even though they wouldn't be around for another year). I'm a fan of all their works but prefer their earliest, their first 5. If you truly listen to coda you can pinpoint the approximate time each song may've been recorded and what album it was left off, glad these tracks would later be released--but not their finest..

  5. I saw the movie, then bought the soundtrack (late 1979), my first studio album was their 4th, then I went and bought the rest, hehehehe. LZ II is my favorite of the studios, but nothing sounds better than live Zeppelin. Looking forward to adding Celebration Day to my collection.

  6. I see lots for Graffiti-I agree, a very diverse album. I'm a fan of the band's "true sounds", so I'm always partial to live recordings, so natural it's The Song Remains the Same--catching Zeppelin at their peak and in their prime. As far as studio albums go, it would be Zeppelin II, I love that original bluesy sound they started with, and of course their first, Houses, and their fourth are all close seconds, hehehehe.

    I think what makes these guys so unique is each album when released (outside the first 2) "didn't make sense" at the time, but become musical works of art. At the time they were so misunderstood and now some 30+ years later the public is seeing the true geniuses they really were, something true Zeppelin fans already knew.

  7. Took me awhile to get mine too, if it's on back order you won't here until the merchandise comes in--won't be charged either until then. Once the items are verified, you'll be charged then notified with a tracking number, then it only takes about a week. You could call the 1-800 number posted, you'll get an answer much quicker. If the items are wrong, call them and they'll make it right for you. They sent me a wrong shirt, told me to keep it cause it was their mistake and they'd send me the right one they messed up on. Hope that helps.


  8. How 'bout those Patriots!! Follow the Rams all the way to London then stomp them to the ground, looks like veal on the menu tonight!!

    Atlanta goes to Philly and completely dominates, to remain unbeaten, they play like this in January they should be able to get further then the first game.

    My 49ers play Arizona tomorrow, a game they need to win, a team they still struggle with.

  9. Actually Jimmy has done "new" stuff.

    1. the Death Wish 2 soundtrack re-release

    2. the Lucifer Rising soundtrack

    I would say no the Robert Plant inquiry

    The touring question is debatable upon several categories, the first being why.

    The well is not dry

    These are new days for Senor Page, ahem, website material

    James Patrick Page has never taken a chance. His entire career has been carefully thought out and wisely constructed to benefit himself first, then others. There is nothing wrong with that. That is called good business. That is not debatable for him, it might be debatable for the fans.

    Don't forget the Firm, his Outrider solo album (who was that drummer? Jason ummm...), as well as Coverdale/Page too

  10. We met lots of amazing people there, mostly older generation types sharing their experiences seeing the band live then seeing this movie. Like me, they were amazed at the 27 year gap between shows, sure there were appearances here and there but anyone can do a couple songs from time to time. To regroup after that long of an absence and do a complete set as well as they did, yeah, there is definitely something special there--it just "doesn't happen" for everyone.

    We also saw and talked to some younger folks, some bored and "didn't see why this band was so popular", but lots of youngins who were amazed at the show, "you just don't see that camaraderie today with today's musicians", can only marvel "how good they were in their prime". My words--they fit in now, back then, they were way ahead of their time, it's taken the music world 30 years to catch up with them.

  11. Two different eras... Each one is a picture at a certain point in time. Both kick ass!

    I agree exactly!! The Song...... was great cause it caught them in their prime, and the fantasy sequences were great. This movie is what made me a hardcore Zeppelin fan, hearing them is one thing, seeing them perform it is a whole other, I "got it" why the band was soo popular. Now 27 years after their split in 1980, we capture their "final performance", again showing they still can bring it at the same intensity they always did before. Sure with today's technology, Celebration Day may be "a better film", but imagine if all this was available in the early 70s--how much more awesome would The Song Remains the Same been then. As mentioned above, 2 great films catching 2 great periods in a historic band's career, but I'll give The Song...... the nod.

  12. Orton was with KC before Dallas, glad NE won but they seem erratic, don't see them going to New Orleans in January (Feb), Atlanta looking good but let's see what Matty Ice does in January, (who woulda thought Atlanta and New Orleans would be ruling their conference), and How 'Bout Those 49ers?? Hopefully they can carry it on to New Orleans!! (a 6th trophy trophy would be nice)

  13. Wow, I got a hat trick this week!! Looked like Buffalo may pull another win against the Pats BUT!! 35 points later the Patriots were in command--oh yeah!! gotta love that win!! (sorry dude!!)

    For all those Jets fans looking for their identity--keep looking!! How 'bout those 49ers!! Ground those Jets west coast style!! Buffalo next week and the Giants the week after??--doesn't get any easier for the red and gold.

    And how 'bout those Falcons, give props to the Carolina crew-they hung with them and come real close to an upset. first and 10 on the one yard line and just over a minute, are you kidding me?? Leave it to Matty Ice and before you know it, Birds kick a FG with 5 seconds left and hold on to win!1 (Although I must say, I had visions of a Cam Newton pass in the end zone and here comes Steve Smith out of nowhere to make a heroic catch for a TD--fortunately it didn't happen!!)

  14. nope-would love to see it, but don't see it happening.

    Expectations and pressure would be soooo high, and as mentioned earlier-no Bonzo to complete the set. I think 02 was a test, it showed they "still got it", but how often could they keep performing at that level, I think that's why Plant said no. It worked, let's leave it at that. Sure Jason was amazing, but he's not Bonzo-he'll tell you that. A tour without Plant, saw how that went, the fans spoke out against it and it never happened. New material would be great, but it would never measure up to past accomplishments, and perhaps that's why nothing's been attempted. I have to agree with Robert here-"let this stand as part of the Led Zeppelin legacy, and leave it at that."
