  1. Oh, you're right. I mixed egotism up with irrationality, there. (Can't imagine why. ) So folks may make up their own minds: http://www.manicnirvana.com/ Hey HotPlant, look for my "JIMMY PAGE IS UNBELIEVABLY GREAT" thread, coming soon. Heck, if a single pro-Page post can start all this, think what a whole thread can accomplish!
  2. LOL, honestly. Honey, they can have him. No hero of mine is so weak he needs constant attention and praise and cannot withstand thoughtful analysis. Besides, had I remained a Plant fan, I'd have to hang around with a bunch of nauseatingly fawning, self-congratulatory and one-note fans. No, thank you. I did talk about Page's accomplishments: http://forums.ledzeppelin.com/index.php?s=...st&p=301946 As per usual, Plant's insecure gaggle wasn't interested in discussing Jimmy Page. It doesn't matter where I attempt to start such a discussion, people are standing by 24/7
  3. Poor thing. I hope you get better soon.
  4. Thanks Buckeye, that's cool! Happy solstice, everyone!
  5. Yes, that was John Paul Jones's aim, I believe. Maybe this discussion also belongs in that thread about the humor in Zeppelin songs? "Hey guys, let's watch people try and dance to THIS!"
  6. Where in this thread have I expressed dislike or criticism of Robert Plant? Quotes, please. You know what's a shame? I used to love Robert Plant. I got back into Zeppelin because I was impressed how vital "Might Rearranger" is, and it led me back where I belong. Then, I experienced "hiBob Mania" (good one!) Before a year was out, my ardor for Plant was done. You want unobjective, baseless, insane, even pointless? Read some of his followers; they give sycophancy new meaning. Their inability to think critically (and by that I do not mean just negatively) is no recommendatio
  7. Please show where I denied the band's success being due to all four of them? What I said was, it took a great producer and band leader to keep that together and moving onward for so long. Producing the records is a job all its own, and can indeed make or break a band (speaking of the Yardbirds). That's just a fact. You seem to disagree; perhaps you'd care to actually discuss it? That is, Jimmy's part in the band's success, then and now? As an aside, do you and Kentucky Girl want to know why the Plant vs. Page thing will never die? It's Plant's fans' inability to be reasonable
  8. What made me smile today: Christmas Carols for the Mentally Challenged 1. Schizophrenia --- Do You Hear What I Hear? 2. Multiple Personality Disorder --- We Three Queens Disoriented Are 3. Amnesia --- I Don't Know if I'll be Home for Christmas 4. Narcissistic --- Hark! the Herald Angels Sing About Me 5. Manic --- Deck the Halls and Walls and House and Lawn and Streets and Stores and Office and Town and Cars and Buses and Trucks and Trees and Fire Hydrants 6. Paranoid --- Santa Claus is Coming to Get Me 7. Borderline Personality Disorder --- Thoughts of Roasting
  9. The contingent on this board who give Plant his due can't even handle it when someone does nothing more than give Jimmy Page his propers...
  10. Well, there's a whole contingent of folks who give Plant his due. I think that's well covered. I disagree that Jimmy's work away from the stage and the guitar played a small role in Led Zeppelin's success and longevity. Yes, the chemistry among them all, and between him and Plant, was remarkable and played a part, and the amazing talent and musicianship of all of them did too. But that's not all it took; a bad producer could've fucked that up and then some. A band leader with less comittment and more "lead player's disease," someone who didn't believe in allowing other people's wills t
  11. Thank you both. Yeah, it's unfortunate that's the road Wall chose to go down to raise some sand about his book.
