    Does anyone have any controversial opinions about Zep?

    I guess this initial post is so fucking ridiculous that nobody bothered responding to it.

    Nope, can't afford it. However, there's always this option.....

    Greta Van Fleet

    GVF should stop copying Led Zeppelin and start copying Jeff Buckley. JB lived and breathed Led Zeppelin and the influence was obvious in his music, but somehow never got pigeonholed for being a LZ wannabe. Thats because he wasn't.

    Reggie Young. The premier Memphis/Nashville session guitarist during the 60s' & 70's has passed. This guys contribution was/is immeasurable. RIP https://www.npr.org/2019/01/22/687319728/studio-guitarist-reggie-young-dies-at-82

    Greta Van Fleet

    Yes, they look ridiculous, and if the singer was wearing shorts he'd be Richard Simmons. Vocally, he reminds me of Geddy Lee, Rick Emmit and the Chipmunks. The worst part for me though is the over the top histrionics, as though he is actually doing something of grandeur....isn't this why punk rock was invented? Guitarist is physically stiff/rigid, same goes for his playing. He also (unfortunately) earns the title as the bands lead poseur. Pretentious - definition: "attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc, than is actually possessed"...GVF fit's the bill here. Greta Van Fleet is overhyped.....big time! I hope I'm not offending anyone here. If you like them, I understand. If I don't, then you should understand too. Its not personal, just my opinion.
  7. Personally, I think 'Under Cover of the Night' is the Stones last relevant album, and I think its more inspired than 'Tattoo You'. The title track and 'The Pain of Love' are the standout tracks and feature Jagger in top form. Personally (again), I cannot compare the Stones albums to Zeppelin's because they just did completely different things musically, and I appreciate/love them both. However, I will say that if Brown Sugar and Honkey Tonk Women had been on 'Let It Bleed' like they should have been, it would have been hands down the greatest rock album ever made. I believe the publishing of both these songs were "delayed" due to the Stones extricating themselves out of the hideous contract where they'd signed away all their copyright ownership from 1964 to 1969.....what a disaster! Imagine this track listing: Gimmie Shelter Honkey Tonk Women Live With Me Love In Vain Let It Bleed Brown Sugar Midnight Rambler You Got the Silver Monkey Man You Can't Always Get What You Want
