  1. Hey if anyone has information to help me PLEASE give it! So I have a Fender Mustang I amp and a Gibson Les Paul 2013 Traditional. I just want to have that genuine Page tone he uses throughout his live performances, that way I can use it for all the Zepp songs I play. To give a rough idea I'm going for the TSRTS and HTWWW live albums' sound. Also, if you don't know how the mustangs work, they're basically amps that can emulate other amps and pedals. So if you tell me not only the amp settings but pedals and their settings that'd be great. I heard he uses an echoplex EP3 so if someone can
  2. Well I just mean I was kind of sad when my Led Zeppelin DVD only had the full concert of Royal Albert Hall (which is awesome) but I'd also like to see the full concerts of any Earls Court in 75 concert and Knebworth. I just wish they weren't partial concerts.
  3. I really hope once Jimmy is done he leads releases a bunch of concert CD's and DVD's as well. Imagine the FULL Earls Court and Knebworth performances released (unlike the original Zeppelin DVD) and then CDs/vinyl/mp3 of Earls Court, Knebworth, the best show of 1977 and maybe Tampa? It would make this already exciting time even better!
  4. Oh my gosh that would be dreadful having some other kid get the sticks. I would be so mad. And yeah I agree, I can hear something new in each Zeppelin performance, as I say "10 versions of Whole Lotta Love aren't enough!" Or of Stairway... or the Wanton Song... or That's the Way... or any of them hahaha
  5. can't tell if your joking with this haha what song?
  6. Yes thank you the only problem was that for lack of a better term, "haters" caught on that Zepp had similar lyrics at times and then they looked for every minor detail. There are only so many notes and variations you can have people.
  7. and yes although I just replied to you I have to add this: I am new to not only this forum, but forums in general this isn't usually my thing. I wasn't aware that this was a beaten to death topic on here, and I thought I could just help fellow Led Heads out! I just saw this list of songs on a facebook friend's post and I wanted to put my two cents in,so I did research and came up with some -what I think are- good counterarguments. Sorry if I struck a nerve for you. and even to Joe Bloggs here who resorts to elementary school-esque name calling.
  8. Yeah I am not trying to troll at all! I may have said it in the original part, but this is meant to be a page you can go to, forif someone is trying to say they didn't make what they took their own, or even some making accusations that are just plain wrong and have no depth, you can bring this up and say "No sir I believe you are wrong Zepp was and IS the greatest band of all time". I don't know what made that guy think I was trolling.....?
  9. I knew I'd heard a similar riff from the Lemon song somewhere, it was on some televised blues festival, thanks for letting me know what it was. I have to say those are similar but I still think Jimmy's is different enough. And wow I can't believe I didn't know that Robert Johnson made the lemon thing up. And okay thanks I wasn't sure what type that was in "Hat's Off to Roy Harper" thanks!
  10. That's pushing it man the 4 note phrase has been used a lot in music that's not what I'd call the same by any means. It took me until :37 to even hear it was in there. Again it's not the whole riff either the first four notes of Jimmy's eight note riff. Hey Joe is great though, and JH Experience is one of my favorite bands after Zeppelin!
  11. As any true Zeppelin fan knows, there are spiteful individuals who wish to discredit the band and its accomplishments. Being heavily influenced by the bluesmen that came before, Zeppelin redefined the genre and introduced people such as myself, to the wonderful music. Had it not been for this band I would never have known about it, and I wonder if the Zepp ever realizes how influential it is making a 19 year old as of 2014 fall in love with not only their own music, but introducing me to a whole other genre. Here are some songs that people have claimed Zeppelin "ripped off", I am trying to
  12. Thanks for all these posts guys, if I ever met one of them I'd asks some your questions, they're very insightful!
  13. I was wondering what questions myself and all of YOU would want to ask the remaining members? I would try and ask the most odd questions they wouldn't expect, just to get to know them. I was thinking of asking some of these, and you guys tell me what you'd ask! * Jimmy, what became of the Dragon Suit? * Robert, what's your favorite musical style you've discovered while travelling the world? * Do you listen to your own music still today? * What advice would you give me as a musician? * Do you ever know "Oh this song will be a hit" before it's even released? * What bands toda
