  2. I DIDN"T I NEVER FUCKING SAID TO STOP LISTENING TO THEM, I NEVER CRITICIZED THEM, I WAS MERELY STATING MY OPINION.. I LIKE THE SONG!! CAN'T YOU READ? Geez people, just because someone has a different opinion than you, IT DOESN'T MAKE THEM A TROLL. You should really look up what an internet troll is.
  3. I disagree wholeheartedly with the claim that Led Zeppelin are the "greatest" act of all time. Hell, they don't even beat very many of the greats in influence (unless you count shi- oops, I mean heavy metal), hell, I've heard more artists cite The Beach Boys as an influence than Zeppelin. Sure, Zeppelin is good (bolding this so no one can say "get out of this forum if you don't like zeppelin (or any such variation)"), and I enjoy them, but the "best" title, is better reserved for acts such as The Beatles (even though I'm not to big of a fan) or The Rolling Stones. At least in rock music.
  4. Any band that only plays covers, usually of the same artists. It's weird, in my area (Oregon and Washington -Portland + Seattle), tribute bands are MUCH more popular than bands that play originals..they do a lot more touring. Maybe it's because they are what people are familiar with? I just think it's a ripoff that people with actual talent don't get "well-known" while guys up there imitating Jerry Garcia or Jimmy Page do. As for real successful artists, I think a band stops becoming a band when it only tours and does not put out new albums. The Beach Boys are pretty much the epitome of that.
  5. Makes more sense than your boring opinion: "omgeee there is lik no way that led zeppelin evar put out anything that is like not perfects!!11"
  6. When did I EVER say they were Satanists? I said that they UNKNOWINGLY put out a Satanic song.
  7. I was talking about my Lep Zeppelin theory. But yes, I hover between accepting and denying the McCartney theory. On one hand, (the one you probably prefer (to jerk with that is,)to believe) it ruins a "legend". On the other hand, it makes a guy who's work has pretty much been lingering between adequate/listenable to boring to terrible since McCartney a little more interesting and bearable. Plus it makes for great conversation.
  8. Geez..you really like personally attacking people. What reason would I have to no believe Stephen Davis? Oh..I know, it's because YOU don't like what he is saying. I don't take him as "gospel" I was merely using his book as part of evidence to support a theory. And just because something walks and talks like Paul McCartney, doesn't mean it's Paul McCartney. I actually used QUOTES and research to back up my point of view, which is more than you or that Superfly fellow have done.
  9. Sweet! (That you've heard it, not that you can't hear it anymore) Anyway, there is a hilarious bit from a few months ago (maybe 7), where guest Jeff Dowder, drummer of band Dark House talks about how he is a MUCH better drummer than John Bonham. I remember thinking it was brilliant One can record the show nightly..from here: http://dar.fm/ Or...I think the official site has a link where you can listen to the first hour of the previous night's show..or something to that affect.
  10. Thing Stuck Up A Butt - The Lynx-Boys
  11. Hey, McCartney dying at 27 is a very valid, AND interesting theory...and if you think about it... He would have been a member of the 27 Club. Mindfuck.
  12. ^ Must be a fan of Blaxploitation films <Just sniffed laundry detergent in a pathetic attempt to get high, and is not sure if it is working.
  13. Can anyone explain to me what the overall appeal of "Exile" is? I mean, yeah, it has a semi-interesting story behind it (though way tooo druggy, even for me), and there are a few good songs "Rocks Off" "Shake Your Hips" "Tumbling Dice" "Sweet Virginia" "Loving Cup" and "Happy", but as a whole, I just don't like the album. I have honestly only been able to sit through the album once - when I first bought it. After that, I may listen to some of the best tracks off it, but I can't put it on as I can Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed, Some Girls, and hell, even It's Only Rock N Roll and Beggars Banquet. The album just seems like an average Stones album, not even their sleaziest.
  14. From Stephen Davis' book "Hammer Of the Gods", Plant is talking about the writing of "Stairway to Heaven".: " . . Robert described the 'automatic' nature of the lyric: 'I was just sitting there with Pagey in front of a fire at Headley Grange. Pagey had written the chords and played them for me. I was holding a paper and pencil, and for some reason, I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out words. 'There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.' I just sat there and looked at the words and then I almost leaped out of my seat.'" (Page 164) "He [Robert Plant] often remarked that he could feel his pen being pushed by some higher authority." (Page 262) The fact that Plant did not actually write the lyrics himself could give an explanation to why you can hear Satanic messages when playing the recording backwards, the message is in the lyrics, not in any studio trick done by the band. As we all know..Headly Grange was where infamous Black-Magick practitioner Aliester Crowley lived and performed rituals, that is also where Plant "wrote" Stairway to Heaven. The lyrics of Stairway feature many references to both Crowley and Pagan religion. "It's just a spring clean for the May queen" is a reference to both the pagan ritual/item of dancing around a maypole, and the horrendous Aliester Crowley poem "May Queen". The references to "the Piper": "Then the piper will lead us to reason." "Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know, The piper's calling you to join him," In paganism, the Piper is Pan. and Pan's true identity is none other than...THE DEVIL. "Your head is humming and it won't go" The song IS a very catchy song, and so, it sticks in your brain, and is really the Devil calling you to join him. "Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There's still time to change the road you're on." There are two paths according to Crowley, and most religions - God and Satan, which path is the song telling us to change to? "And if you listen very hard The tune will come to you at last." Listen verrry hard - backmask it. The true nature of the tune will come to you at last. There are numerous other Pagan references, but I do not know enough about the pagan theology to properly analyze each and every one. I am not criticizing Zeppelin, the song is still an entertaining listen. If the above is true, and the song really is "satanic", then it probably is no fault of the bands.
  15. That's why I said in the original post, that they could replace those with alternate studio takes.. Geez, you'd think people on this forum would be jumping all over this..
  16. I would like to see it, mainly because I like the idea of bands releasing live versions of each of their albums. I would buy them, but that doesn't mean I would listen to them often. Basically: I like the idea/thought, and would like seeing them, more than I would like actually listening to them.
  17. I dislike the movies because of their extreme and in-your-face mainstreamness.
  18. What the hell is your problem? I'm not always mentioning Dylan. The only times I have mentioned him were in the "Bob Dylan" thread.
  19. I don't really care either way, I'm not a fan of Zep live..I just think it would be interesting, and I'm surprised that no band has ever thought of it,
  20. That's just Dylan being Dylan. I'm sure the guy didn't mind. I'm sure I wouldn't if I was just a backing musician.
  21. Is it a dislike of the artists themselves, or the songs featured on the compilations? I second the Beatles "Red" and "Blue", they are the ones that sucked me into an ill-fated love of the Beatles while in high school.
