    RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    I bought the cd via Amazon and it's pretty good--has variety, production seems good, Jay sounds good, his voice is still strong. I don't feel like I heard a signature song like "Pressure and Time," "Keep on Swinging" or "Open My Eyes" though. I was thinking of going to see them in San Francisco in May, but I've been to five of their shows, and at the last one the audience, now composed mostly of die hard fans, sings along and drowns out Jay. It's almost as bad as people humming the riff of "Luke's Wall" at a Black Sabbath concert. I think Scott is a good guitarist, but maybe the latest album isn't his best work. Songs like "Manifest Destiny" and "Destination on Course" show off his skills more.

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    Couple of comments: First, how old are you? At 54 I'm not the same person I was at 44. At 44 I backpacked the Grand Canyon. Now I can walk a mile or two, and I avoid stairs. It's called growing older. As for Buddy Guy, I saw him perform in 2015 and in 2016 with Jeff Beck. It's time for him to retire. His act now is 50 percent guitar playing and 50 percent shtick. There are a few moments worth listening to and the rest of it is annoying.
  3. Thanks for the photos and all this info! I just recently returned to this site. I attended the Zep tribute event at Carnegie Hall in March 2018. It was a lot of fun. Some of the acts were better than others, but they all put on a good show. The highlight was definitely the Rock and Roll cover by Living Colour. I wish I could go this year but I moved to California.
  4. I moved to California!

    Anyone listened to the new album in its entirety? Wondering how it compares to the previous albums. Was thinking of buying the cd...

    Greta Van Fleet

    Hi there! I see a lot of the same people are still here...but many of my old friends are missing 😢hmm, wonder why...anyway, Greta Van Fleet--saw them live in 2017. Pretty good, lead singer has a great voice and good stage presence. In recent video on YouTube he seems to be screaming a lot though...the guitarist is getting better and better imo. I like the costumes, especially the Roger Daltrey look.

    Thor: Ragnarok trailer (w/ Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song)

    Here's a "novel" idea: Put Zeppelin on the stereo and READ A FUCKING BOOK. why does Hollywood keep making the same movie over and over again?

    Finding Led Zeppelin in unrelated places

    A couple of days ago Jensen Ackles and his wife had twins and they named one of them "Zeppelin." For those of you who don't know, Ackles plays the character "Dean Winchester" on the tv show "Supernatural." Dean Winchester is a huge Led Zeppelin fan; in one episode he sets a vinyl of the first album in his room in their hideout. He and his brother pretend to be detectives and FBI agents and borrow last names from rock stars; in one episode they were Page and Plant.

    Magic, Music, Religion and Psychotherapy

    Hi Andy! It could be low blood pressure or neurological. It could be due to an inner ear issue. Or it could be psychological. Unless it interferes with your life I wouldn't worry about it though.

    Jimmy Page welcomes home a cultural icon (GQ)

    He appears to be color-coordinated with Flaming June and I doubt that's a coincidence. Might have been the photographer's idea. There is strictly no photography in Leighton House...unless you're a celebrity getting your photo taken I guess...

    The Occult and Zeppelin

    No way are Jay-Z or Beyonce members as the only type of worship they engage in is the worship of money. Johnny Cash was a devout Christian. George Lucas I don't know. Sting possibly; it might be up his alley.

    So you know that he was invited to join the OTO...but you don't know that he didn't. It is after all a semi-secret society.

    Jimmy Page welcomes home a cultural icon (GQ)

    I just returned from London two days ago. I went to Leighton House on Monday, and they mentioned Flaming June coming back. I wasn't upset that I was missing it because in fact I have seen Flaming June on loan at a museum here in New York last year. It is a lovely painting. Leighton House is something special; you should definitely see it if you are in London. It is extraordinarily decorated with Middle Eastern decorations as well as Leighton's art. After I saw Leighton House I took a stroll down the road to Tower House. It doesn't look quite as big as I had thought it was, almost not like what you would think a rock star would live in (although I didn't go around the back). I would love to take a look inside as it is quite a unique building. I did not see anything else around the block that looked remotely similar. There is another large house next to it (what's his name's house?) but the rest of the neighborhood looks sort of upper middle class urban/suburban--some nice houses and some smallish apartment buildings.
