    Seattle 1977 Video with Remastered Sound

    Spare me already with this bullshit. Seriously, Captain Obvious, you don't know who LZ '77 were by now? You take this beautiful document of the band, the only pro-shot footage of the tour, which has never been presented this well before, and use it to cut the band off at the knees? Why do you bother with Led Zeppelin when you know their live performances won't live up to your "professional musicianship" standards. You are completely clueless about LZ and RnR in general. Neither were ever intended to be note perfect. So, fans came here to say they enjoyed this viewing experience and you're here to confirm that's not a valid point of view? Really.

    Does anyone have any controversial opinions about Zep?

    I'm honestly curious. Timestamping Jimmy Page's "wrong" notes. Disparaging the highly regarded skills of widely beloved lost brother. Controversial opinions are one thing. I'm just not convinced your agenda is to celebrate Led Zeppelin. Are you open to opposing opinions and a discussion? Here's how another poster who disagreed with you was answered... I think you're wrong and incapable of seeing past your nose. No offense. No offence. Lol. You don't seem to take criticism well. The thread title asks for controversial opinions. It doesn't promise you won't be asked to answer for them.

    Was a back handed compliment your intention, 'cause that really only serves your "not a real drummer" theory. Is there a forum somewhere where you spend time celebrating real drummers?

    The Super Bowl Thread

    Boring? You've got the GOAT and his posse playing in the spotlight game of the year and being held to 6 points, 2 field goals through the first 45 minutes of play. Something interesting was happening. This rare treat, watching the GOAT being reduced to a mortal, throwing errant passes, using poor judgement, having to flee a collapsing pocket, and picking himself up after being knocked around by a premier pass rush, was for many, to be savored regardless of the final score. Had Goff played any better, had Gurley been able, and/or had the Rams bothered to bring an o-line, the GOAT may not have survived throwing an interception and leading his team to settling for a missed field. Hell, the GOAT was only in the red zone one more time than the Rams were. Didn't take much to be the GOAT yesterday. Considering the state of the Rams, the GOAT was in a position to make a crushing, definitive statement. Yet, he didn't. Or did he? Maybe the GOAT's definitive statement is, "I'll do enough to get by". Sounds more like a slogan for welfare recipients than it does for The Greatest Of All Time. Oh well, can't argue with 6 rings. That's the current state of NFL officiating. Despite instant replay with multiple angles and mega zoom, calls are subjective, random, often wrong and can cost a team a win. Just ask the Saints

    The only thing worse than a real Patriots fan is the d-bag who jumps on the bandwagon in the playoffs.

    Does anyone have any controversial opinions about Zep?

    Yeah, not a lot of what has been posted in this thread is too controversial. Gripes which have been addressed ad nauseam in this and the other forum. Except, of course, the idea that Bonzo isn't a real drummer. How about, accepting and enjoying LZ for what the band was and what they left behind, without caveats. Not as some fanboy rose-colored vision, but by experiencing the personal and professional triumphs and tragedies with the band through the music. Understanding that the band's evolution, through the changes life brings, wouldn't allow '75, '77 or '80 to sound like '71 or '73. Knowing missed notes and even off nights are to be expected when a band takes music and life to the nth degree. The human element, that's the magic ingredient in the continued interest with live recordings. It deserves to be embraced rather than scorned.

    Colorado and Washington legalize Marijuana

    If you haven't used for years, how would you know? A helpful lady trying to educate your ignorant self on current options to get high is a stupid bitch because she didn't smoke weed in the 70's? Is this supposed to be a statement or a question? By all means, wait on this guy to complete paperwork before you move forward with decisions which affect your life. Exactly. No one here smoked any weed in the 70's and would be able to give an honest accurate comparison. Product of an indeterminate source is always the best option! You showed that stupid bitch who's boss.

    What conspiracy theories do you think are real or are ridiculous?

    Rosyln Carter? Are you too drunk to comprehend? Did you even read what I posted? Where did i convict anybody without a fair trial? Here again, for what it is worth, is the point of my post: Without any hard evidence, here's how a rational person without an agenda speculates: Was there motive? Was there means? Was there opportunity? (speculates....) Since I don't have all the facts yet, I'll wait for conclusive evidence to render a judgement. Let's see what you can twist this into.

    What conspiracy theories do you think are real or are ridiculous?

    A true testament to narcissistic dogma. There's no hard evidence to prove either way, but they're wrong and you're right. Because there just couldn't be any secrets or unknowns behind the closed doors of the U.S. government, Disneyland, your local Burger King or.....your house, right? Vince Foster? There are now some 30+ deaths (Mysterious? Maybe yes, maybe no) which can be linked to the Clintons. Now, without any hard evidence, here's how a rational person without an agenda speculates: Was there motive? Maybe. In some cases, probable. Was there means? More than likely. Was there opportunity? I'm willing to bet there was. Hmmm. I don't have all the facts yet, but it's certainly not outside the realm of possibility. I'll wait for conclusive evidence to render a judgement. See how that works? Maybe when your done gratifying yourself, you can give it a try.

    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    Yeah, for me it's Copenhagen '79. I consistently see these listed as great audience recordings. Top performances and a must listen? Sure. But these are recordings I listen to in spite of their shortcomings. I file 'em under tolerable. Not yet. Looking forward to it.

    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    Fair enough. I would describe this recording as a beautiful priceless treasure. Different strokes... But I enjoy audience/lo-fi recordings to the point of almost preferring them. Beyond the usual suspects, these are recordings that have become for me indispensable. 1969-01-31 New York 1971-09-03 New York 1972-12-22 London 1973-03-17 Munich 1975-01-22 Chicago 1977-06-26 Los Angeles 1980-06-23 Bremen
