  1. I love the CD version from TSRTS. The bluesy feel of the guitar solo is amazing. Not just my favorite version of NQ but one of my favorite Zep songs period.
  2. I have listened to LZ for 16 years or so but not nearly to the extent that I have over the last 12 months. Being a drummer I always put John Bonham at the top of my influence list. I remember writing a paper about him in the second grade. I had an older friend who had a few albums and I can remember listening to PG on his brother's Pioneer stereo and loving Trampled Under Foot, Kashmir, and IMTOD. Time went on and I listened to a lot of other bands. Alice In Chains became my favorite band through high school and I listened to rock and rap (WTH was I thinking?) in college. I have now come to the realization that MOST current day music just isn't very good IMO especially the stuff that is on pop radio. I have a very obsessive personality and will dive head-on into music or projects on a whim and stay with them for long periods of time especially if they push the right button. I remember one night early last year I flipped on Paladia and the O2 reunion show was on. I listened to a couple of songs and remembered how great Zeppelin was. Then I heard a song I had never heard before and pulled out Shazam on my phone. It was No Quarter. I downloaded it on Youtube and I was hooked on LZ. No Quarter from the O2 show was the first LZ song on my iPod (and at this point the only track from the O2 show I've d/l). Mothership was next which is a great place to start for someone listening to Zep. Now I am completing all of the albums a few songs at a time. I have all of I,II,IV PG, Presence, and ITTOD. I only lack about 10 songs to complete the rest of the albums. As I have listened to the entire Zep catalog a great appreciation for their music both on the surface and as a musician myself has emerged. To me there really is NO comparison. I spend a lot of time in my car with my job so there is a ton of time to listen to music. There have been times I have listened to nothing but Zeppelin for a month straight. The music never gets old. I have also spent a lot of time reading on this forum and other sources so I have learned a lot about the band, their history, stories, etc. I'm not near the expert as many here but I think I know more than the average person. LZ is stuck with me from now on. The music is too good to let go of again.
