  2. In the real near future probably 10-15 years America will not have the money to keep their forces all over the world so we'll see them pull out relatively soon. We're spending way too much money that we don't have as it is. It won't be long before we stop spending money on military and the world will really love us when this happens.

  3. Page was awful on the Destroyer bootleg I can't even listen to it anymore. Birmingham and one of the LA ones are probably my favorite 77 Sibly but Page was overall pretty sloppy on this song in 77.

  4. As much as I like Led Zeppelin I would have to disagree with the statement that led zeppelin was the first metal band.

    Black Sabbath was the first metal band.

    I don't think either are heavy metal but they both influenced it greatly. Take out either one and heavy metal isn't the same.

    The 68 Gonzaga gig has been around for a long time. And it's even been on youtube for a couple years.

  5. :slapface: It just occurred to me, continuing with the Beatles analogy, that some of these epic drum solos are even longer than a Beatlemania-era (63-66) performance! I remember reading that George Harrison saw one of the 1973 LA shows (Bonzo's birthday, perhaps? I know he attended the actual party) and was shocked by the length of Zeppelin's show:

    "Fuck me!" Harrison supposedly said. "With the Beatles we were offstage in half an hour, and usually could be off in twenty minutes!"

    That's one thing I love about Zeppelin: though some of the "latter day" shows could be pretty shaky, at least they gave the audience value for money! Christ, nowadays, who plays for three and half hours with no opening acts or intermission?

    I recently went to a Billy Joel/Elton John concert no intermission about 3 hours and 45 minutes. Zeppelin was doing 3 hour gigs as early as 71 probably. By about March of 75 almost every show as probably 3 hours. The longest Zeppelin show recorded was one of the Earls Court shows.

  6. The June 26th 1980 show in Vienna was interrupted during 'White Summer' when Jimmy was hit in the face by a firecracker. The organizer stepped up to the mic and addressed the audience, requesting the person responsible come up to the stage to have a word with him. After a quick intermission, the band returned to perform 'Kashmir'.

    Not sure if this is true

    Here is the whole announcement translated from its original language: "Achtung! Jimmy asks that you please refrain from throwing firecrackers as it is ruining his heroin buzz ... the only pyro that is allowed is what the band has on stage. Next kraut caught throwing an M80 and Jimmy will turn you into a newt and turn your girl into a slave of the devil. Now sit back and enjoy his 30 minute butchering of White Summer."

  7. True, more or less. I've addressed the finer details so many times anyone interested can use the search function.

    The Saturday Night Live episode aired May 9, 1998 for the benefit of anyone seeking it.

    Jimmy wanted to do something for his son that he could say "That's my dad" but by the time his son was about 16 anyway almost everyone probably his age idolized his dad for what he did in the 70s anyway.

  8. I thought it was pretty well written. Sure you could disagree with this or that, but hey - it's his perogative.

    I honestly think the band could likely have fragmented at some point in the 80s. If Jimmy had gotten it together - the albums would've IMO sounded like what the Firm produced in their second release, or even Coverdale-Page. Bad Company carried on without Paul Rodgers but got a new singer later on. The Stones struggled later in the 80s and eventually Keith Richards and Mick Jagger had to take a break from each other and pursue their own solo careers...it's highly possible that Plant would've gotten tired of Zep enough to try something else, given his nature.

    If Jimmy had still been doing drugs at a high level - he did look pretty bad at Knebworth, an overdose would not have been inconceivable. I'm pretty sure the band's output would've just been an album every few years, since they were comfortable financially.

    To their credit, In Through the Out Door wasn't so much of a statement as an anti-statement. So was Presence - the band just wasn't doing anything to please anyone at that point. At the same time, stagnation could've been a real issue.

    No-one wants to admit it but the band HAD changed...and the death of John Bonham probably woke everyone up as well.

    I don't know about Presence. That had some intense stuff on it. I think it may have had some of Page's best guitar work with Achilles and Tea For One and Bonzo and Robert were amazing too. The album did basically leave out Jonesy.
