  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 to set themselves apart, the umlaute... Who are they, if you havent figured it out yet? The one & only Give BOC's albums a listen or another go if youve heard them before and youll see.
  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. 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).
  4. ok, thanks everybody, pretty much covers it, we can let this thread die now...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 Krauss. NOTE: I love this later work, so this isnt a slam on it! So, to you folks out there that know Plant better, what do you think? Thank you!
  8. There is indeed a band that has become the next generation of Led Zeppelin. Their sound is every bit as hard driving and guitar driven as Zep's. They have a Metal/Blues mix where as Zep had a Blues/Metal mix. Both of their music and sounds had/have an "other-Worldly" aspect to them. What band you ask?? Godsmack
  9. Turbo's my favorite to drive to. Although I must admit I'm not a huge fan but i do have a greatest hits CD.
  10. So, having finally collected all of Led Zeppelin's studio albums (including "No Quarter" & "The BBC Sessions") on CD (had the full collection on cassette) I have moved on to Blue Oyster Cult. I have loved their "top 4" songs since i was a teen, but hadn't explored the group until last year at the age of 44. I cant believe I've missed so much with this group! Have collected most of their studio albums, the last two I am waiting for on order is "Secret Treaties" & "Heaven Forbid." The "Heaven Forbid" CD is aparently out of print so even a used one from a collector is running $25 - $30! My favorite albums? #1. Imaginos #2. Fire of Unknown Origin (Trivia: made to be the soundtrack to 1981's "Heavy Metal" movie!) #3. Agents of Fortune/ Spectres #4. Revolution By Night One thing I really enjoy is the band's references to Lovecraft, Other-worldly subjects and related subjects. In addition to Wikipedia, I enjoy having this BOC reference site here: http://www.hotrails.co.uk/bocfaq/faq_04.htm One interesting thing I've noticed is similarities in evolution between B.O.C. and Pink Floyd. If you listen to BOC's first two albums, they paralell early Sid Barett albums from Pink Floyd. After that both bands seem to evolve into their final form. I caught the video of Donald Roeser on "That Metal Show" saying that there's a new BOC album in the works. This one will be a studio album of many of their hits in acoustic form. If you've heard the demo version of "Dont Fear The Reaper" on the bonus tracks on "Agents of Fortune", it should be like that. I'm looking fowrward to picking it up as soon as its released. Anybody else a BOC fan?
