  1. There is but one band to rival Zeppelin, under appreciated and seldom given credit for the powerhouse that it is. They arose at about the same time as Zeppelin, they cranked out albums for 30 years & their sound evolved through those years. In fact they still tour like madmen and jam it out like the rock gods they are. They pumped out 13 awesome studio albums, one soundtrack, 4 live albums, and one album of their work they did before they became the iconic band they gave the world AND, They gave the rock world a lasting symbol that other bands like Motorhead & Queensryche would use
  2. Is your name a reference to Diamond Head?

      oh, sorry, just now checking on things for my account & saw this.  no, its because i am living on borrowed time as i could be dead now for several reasons.... its been a tough go of it at times.

  3. Well, I'm having memory issues, i'm pretty sure I read this quote somewhere because its too good/clever for me to have come up with on my own. I cant find it on any Google searches. I paraphrase: "The Beatles and the Rolling Stones had a gang fight in a parking lot, and Led Zeppelin won!" From whom is this quote please?? Thank you guys!
  4. Best album? Physical Graffiti Best song? When The Levee Breaks (the harmonica and Plants vocals are just .... well.... if there was a god, his theme song for Sodom & Gomorrha, the Flood, and the Apocalypse would be this song).
  5. thanks guys! Also got a list with descriptions of what seems like a crap ton of the deep cuts and bootlegged stuff from another member here, great having a full "grocery list" of the extra stuff out there!
  6. So, As per the title, I need help finding some more Zeppelin, i have the following : Zeppelin I, II, III. IV, Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti, Presence, In Through the Out Door, Coda, The Song Remains the Same, the 1990 and 1993 boxed sets, The BBC Sessions, No Quarter, and Walking Into Clarksdale. I also have much of Plant's solo CD's. I am looking for ideas for my next purchases (new & used) at a local shop that has a pretty full inventory. Looking for the rambling live shows where Page & Plant cut loose. especially when Plant folds in lyric
  7. ok, thanks everybody, pretty much covers it, we can let this thread die now...
  8. I just got this CD, fortunately, used/cheap. Its not "Zeppelin" for sure, so its more my bias probably, was expecting the same style/sound as their Zeppelin days. I'll have to listen to it after I try to overcome my putting it in a Zepp box, need to put it in its own box and re-evaluate. will check in later. HOWEVER, i did like "Please Read the Letter". Also really liked the version with Alison Krauss.
  9. Yes, Also recently i found that much of ZZ Top's first 8 - 9 albums were very based in the blues! sounds great!
  10. So, I finally ordered the 4 disc (3 CD's & 1 DVD) of the Roots of Led Zeppelin, http://www.amazon.com/Roots-Led-Zeppelin/dp/B001QU9RO8/ref=pd_sim_sbs_15_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=61hX8alhvJL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=064GYXPP759PPPA5X1JT, all the way from Great Britain, took nearly 3 weeks, but I got it...... HOLY $#!+!! I cant believe how good this set is! all these oldies, folk, Blues, & rock in one collection! the only thing missing is John Fahey's "Dance of the Inhabitants of the Palace of King Phillip XIV of Spain" as I think thats a b
  11. you guys are right of coarse, it would be a sad sight with these guys tryin to do a Zeppelin concert, probably put them in the hospital if they tried too hard. guess we'll just let them age gracefully and in peace.
  12. So, I had been wishing that Zeppelin would tour one last time so I could see them once, missed them as a kid and kicking myself for it. I figure they wouldn't be as good as they were 20 years ago, but still, cool. I have been keeping track of the back & forth between Plant & Page about reuniting and was frustrated by the outcome. HOWEVER, I have been listening to alot of Plant's later work and came up with a theory; Was Plant ever really into the harder, "metal" type hard rock? Most of the work he's done has been slower blues, folk, and nearly country music as with Alison K
  13. Thanks everyone! now i got more groups to explore, very excited! Delta Deep is pretty damned good!
  14. Hey there! I know Zeppelin rewrote the blues for a new generation and turned out solid platinum music. I am getting into the old blues on which there music sprouted from, J. L. Hooker, Muddy Waters, Memphis Minnie, Robert Johnson, Bukka White , Howling Wolf, Lead Belly, etc, etc. I have also ordered the "The Roots Of Led Zeppelin" series with this song/artist list: Disc: 1 1. Blind Willie Johnson Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed 2. Blind Willie Johnson Nobody's Fault But Mine 3. Memphis Jug Band Stealin' Stealin' 4. Memphis Minnie When The Levee Breaks
