  1. It will never happen, not by any band, ever! For many reasons all in sync with each other. First of all, Led Zeppelin was a transition band and laid down one of the founding blueprints for rock music. All other music after Led Zeppelin was based on their arangements. Led Zeppelin did to rock, what the early blues legends did to folk music. The music completely changed after that. Can't replace a founding father. Can't replace the beginning. The other reason, in regard to the authors complaint that bands are now held down. The industry has also changed with our new media. There wont b
  2. CONGRATULATIONS ROBERT AND ALISON! Excellent tour, hope to see you again. I'll even dance next time, no matter how embarrising it will be for all of us J
  3. Putting things into hypathetical perspective. If Zeppelin toured the states this year...the only people that would attend are CEO's and their children. Everyone else is broke in America. 8 years of brutal Republican rule has left our country in ruins. At some point, ya have to put down the bong and pick up a shovel and go to work. We have huge obstacles to over come in coming years. Both in our tiny bubble and in the nation and world. Zeppelin will always be my favorite band. But, I'm not holding my breath on meeting any of them. Hasn't happened yet, probebly wont. I'm just not i
  4. I totally agree with you about the priorities of what our world faces today. I think that is the case for most people that come into this forum. A lot of us are mid-way through our own lives and full of responsability. Long gone are the dreams of being in a rock band, replaced by a myriad of responsabilitys and duties...a lot of us come here just to chit chat about our fav rock band, its that simple. For me to even contemplate entering the music business would be a huge massive step backwards in my life, probebly wouldnt survive it anyway, too old now and too far behind life's simple strugg
  5. Ok you clarified a few miss-understandings or views I had and I agree with you. I'm not trying to second guess anything. I don't follow the interviews....it's important to not obsess over others, for ones own identity. As far as corporate. Ummmmmmmmmm. Jimmy played guitar on the New York Stock Market exhange, that changed the perception! And its not a bad thing either! It is what it is. I think it would be impossible to do a world tour without corporate sponsership. So I'm not complaining about that either....shit wish I had corporate sponsers, lol. Just think how limited our optio
  6. But my favorite is when certain members imply they're tight with the band, as if they can read their minds or they have a cozy relationship with them, and we all know it's total bullshit. This is what happens when you listen to the same tunes over and over and over for 30 years. And you do anything to attend any concert they have. Then you spend a lifetime trying to learn the music after you have memorized it note for note. The important thing is to remember they are a rock band, this is a product. There is probebly nothing more terrerfying to an artist than an obsessed fan. Zeppelin
  7. Absolutely Agree! Especially when Zeppelin music has brought so many people of different values together under one roof. United we stand, devided we fall. The anomosity in post's tells the story of a dedicated member, or a newbee that is clueless. Every single member of the band including Jason is a "living legend". We all need to be greatfull that any of them are still creating music, when in all Reality...none of them need the money or the ego boost. At this point they have nothing to prove, its already been proven. Anything they put out now is for the fan...we need to be greatf
  8. I hope all of you are extremely successful in reproducing zeps music. I personaly was told by RP to not mess with the music what so ever....so I guess I'm going to have to support your efforts!
  9. Keep doing it! Keep the music alive for as long as possible! You provide a service for all aspiring zep musicians. It's much easier to attend a show with a tribute band playing, to see how chords and scales are incorporated into the arrangement of a song, than it would be to see Page doing it....of course now we have You Tube! But nothing beats live music.
  10. Agree'd about the musical integrity. Which is why it is already devistating to think that Robert wont join in. They will need a really big name to fill those shoes.
  11. Eddie isn't big enough! Not only that, you can't choose someone that is anti-corporation to be front man of a corporate elite band.
  12. Because then we cross over from Rock History to Rock Misery.
  13. I agree with this in that Zeppelin is about the music itself. And what better to hear than ripping zep scales and thundering drum beats all night. The only problem with that is it greatly minimizes the overall effect of the tour. And reduces the value of the tour to a select small following. They should blow the doors off it. If Plant decides for what ever personal reasons not to participate...then the rest of the band need's to make it even bigger than it would have been with Plant. They should choose a singer, who's mere utterence of their name will make people spill their coffe
  14. Have Matellica open, Have Gwen Stapahnie sing for Zeppelin...you will then have all the ingrediants for a rock orgy. Matellica attracts 90% beer guzzling guys, Gwen Staphanie attracts 90% beer guzzling women. Allow room for movement. It would be a huge error to have a zep tour, simply to boost the career of a mid-level singer. Without Robert singing on the tour, "all the dynamics" change completely. It simply won't be the same without him. Going to loose a lot of value.
  15. The USC band. That was an awesome album. All those tunes rock with that marching band playing along. Of course like a moron , when I was falling in love with a gal Kimberly (zippy) I played and associated Fleetwood Mac to that relationship...then when it fell apart, I couldn't stand the sound of Fleetwood Mac for a couple years. I don't associate romance with my favorite bands anymore...lol. Just incase it doesn't work out, it doesn't corrupt the fan/artist relationship. Depends on what band is playing what venue, that determines if I'm going. Of course now a days it all comes down to
  16. With all due respect. The Led Zeppelin idea started with Jimmy Page's idea of a band. They should call it Led Zeppelin. It is what it is. The music is the music, they still would have been Led Zeppelin even if Terry Ried accepted. You can sing Zeppelin all day long. It isnt Zeppelin with out Jimmy on guitar, period. Robert should consider doing the tour. It is his voice in Good Times Bad Times that sings "We will never part" and in Ten Years Gone "I'm never going to leave". Of course he sould follow his own heart and do what he chooses to be most happy with within. If he doesnt parti
  17. Then; Endless free style improvisation. Zeppelin Filmore West '69. Now; Make sure you hit this chord when those computer controlled lights go on. Then; A series of extended versions of the album tracks. Now; As many sampled tunes as you can fit into 5 minutes. Then; More friends than tickets. Now; All me friends are married with kids...Guess I'm goin alone again.
  18. As great as it would be to see this happen – I am really against this tour. Your Fired!
  19. To be perfectly honest. I'm retired from concerts myself...With the exception of Page and Plant or Page or Plant , which I would never hesitate to see in concert as long as I could afford it within my currently old folk budget. Other than Zep...for the hassle and high cost it is now, your better off going to Vegas for a week with a hooker. It will cost the same...and you will get a happy ending when your done.
  20. As for security; yes, some of that can seem like a big hassle but there has to be some order in case of an emergency. That is very very true. There has to be some control when you have tens of thousands of people having fun. All I was drawing attention to, is that the conert experience of today is much much different than the concert experience of yesterday. I seen Plant and SS in Berkely a few years back,Paid top dollar for close seats and I was constantly told to sit down by the people behind me. Tried to play along and get into the mood, by dancing in my seat and kept hitting t
  21. I'm not paying someone $100 bucks for that kind of experience anymore. I am not an inmate at Folsom Prison. I would rather keep my memories of shows where I brought my own beer, water was free out of a fountain, and the venue gestapo had better things to do than watch my every move. $100! Shit when was the last time you went to a concert 1947! Try $400 a ticket for a decent crappy seat.
  22. In California, most concerts happen in buisness mecca cities. And none of them look like those! Part of the crowd control at the events them selves are just bled over and a part of public control to an extent. Even in local festivals for whatever excuse we use for a party for the day, security and crowd control is the new mantra of the day, and also the new psycological profile of concert goers. Unless a person is simply young and stupid. The only way your going to get that at a regular concert and not a megga concert, is to do an arena in a party like setting like the Stones did and not a
  23. Depends on what country your in. In America...the drug induced concert days are gone! Unless your a delinquent, your probebly working double shifts just to survive this life and a concert is a major budgeting purchase...you will do without something else, to be able to afford a ticket to begin with. Drug addicts of today cannot afford concert tickets of today..and most of them are listening to gansta rap. Not Rock and Roll. The Rock and Roll scene behind the curtain may have remained the same over the last two decades. But on this side where the fans live, we have grown light years beyond
  24. The concert experience varies according to the artist performing. Eric Clapton, The Zep boys, Paul McCartney are completly different (controlled crowds) experiences then say the Stones or ZZ Top (loose crowds). The controlled events are basically, sit , watch, listen...don't interact too much because you will be kicked out of the arena-very controlled, everyone in their seat and no where else. The Stones and ZZ Top, play arenas that allow for movement, along with Ozzy, Matellica and many other bands, than understand...if you going to pump that much energy into the crowd, you had bette
