    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    We need Adidas Led Zeppelin trainers, then I'll show an interest ///
  2. What's out of tune on Charlie Parker with Strings? Genuine question as I have that album & have never noticed anything, I certainly wouldn't want anyone going near it with Pro Tools.
  3. They could've at least got a retro Ludwig front bass drum head. Beautiful kit though & great to see it find a home where people can share in it.
  4. I'm a big jazz listener myself but I don't see the need to put other things down, Eddie Cochrane & Elvis were brilliant too.
  5. I would point out that I'm a huge fan of both Jon Hiseman & Billy Cobham by the way. All of these people are music legends for a reason & all very different in the way that they play.
  6. Jon Hiseman was a huge John Bonham fan. I would suggest going back & watching Moby Dick from the Royal Albert Hall gig, Bonham had fantastic technique & a great knowledge of his rudiments. Bonham admitted himself he was no Buddy Rich but in terms of rock drumming his feel is unmatched, you can have all the technical ability in the World and never make people feel as good as Bonham did.
  7. 'Real drummers'? Jesus wept.
  8. The late 60s & early 70s will never be matched again in music. The artists had freedom, fresh ideas, a fusion of genres & money/time from the record labels like never before or since. I hope the people who were around at the time appreciate what they had because they were very lucky in that regard.
  9. I think Plant tends to do this diliberately as a sort of flippant humour mechanism, I certainly wouldn't read too much into it.
  10. Agreed, I don't think they're Cons.

  12. Aye, King Crimson are doing it in style, really looking forward to the 1972 live show with Jamie Muir & the reissue of Sid Smith's book.
  13. Glad to hear you get your record player sorted. I'll need to dig that MOJO CD out again, not listened to it for ages.
  14. I loved Michael Kiwanuka's take on Ten Years Gone on that MOJO CD.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    People are more reserved in Britain. I'm always looking at people's clothes but would never think to comment. If I see someone with Zeppelin gear on I think 'cool b*stard' to myself.
  16. Both great albums, wouldn't change a note on either of them personally.
  17. Aye, I think he's talking rubbish.
  18. http://ledzepnews.com/2017/12/19/jimmy-page-said-previously-unheard-led-zeppelin-music-manner-surprises-will-released-bands-fiftieth-anniversary/ “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard,” Page said, “because I’m working on that. Next year will be the fiftieth year so there’s all manner of surprises coming out.”
  19. Interesting comment in here about an upcoming project involving archive releases... https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8491221/jason-bonham-robert-plant-led-zeppelin-reunio

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    I think the fact they play what is considered to be 'heavy metal' puts them out of that 'universal appeal' group of bands like The Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin & Pink Floyd. I do love Sabbath though personally.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Led Zeppelin are considered in the same league as The Beatles & The Stones by anyone with a clue.

    The Lemon Song (studio)

    I don't think it's slowed down. The band played a few songs faster live. Very underrared song though, John Paul Jones is amazing on this.
