    Like others, I'd assumed that Jimmy pretty much wants to collaborate with Robert, above all else. Yet, when Robert told Jimmy 'if you've got anything acoustic, let me know and I'll give it a whirl', Jimmy apparently 'just walked away'. Does that mean that Jimmy's interest is only in a Zeppelin reunion and not something more low-key? I dunno. 

    I imagine it's because Robert said 'Acoustic Only'. I suppose this probably means that Page would rather do a mixture of Acoustic and Electric Material

  2. I just don't understand what goes on in Page's head. he did a massive reissue campaign in 2014/2015. He oversaw hundreds of photos for his book way back in 2010, as well the photos for the deluxe versions of the Zeppelin albums. 

    And did he not once think 'Seeing all these old photos of myself onstage, wearing my Les Paul, maybe it's finally time to get out there again'. I mean, he's Jimmy Page, for one thing, it won't be hard to find musicians (I mean, what musicians WOULDN'T want to play with Jimmy Page?)

    The only thing I could think of is the fact that he is completely out of ideas. I doubt it though. Someone who is as creative as Page can't really be out of ideas. Even after Zeppelin, he still had quite a few really good ideas (Writes of Winter, The Release, Emerald Eyes, Shake my Tree, When The World Was Young). 

    I always imagined it would be Plant who would release very little, with Page being the one who would have an incredible solo career. Although as a Musician and songwriter myself, it is much easier to write Lyrics than melodies and music (for me anyway).

    And it is frustrating for Page to constantly say that he has 'New Material' and is 'Getting ready' to get out there. I mean, I get it, he has nothing left to prove to the public and his fans. But does he not want to get out there to prove to HIMSELF that he can still perform? Even if it's just a 'Career highlights' tour. Just something to prove that he's still around as a musician.

    I honestly don't know.

  3. I'm a big fan of Video game music. before i got into music by Bands and artists, all I ever listened to was Video game music. Music from Zelda, Castlevania, Mario and others. Mainly it was NES and SNES music. here's some of my favorites that I still listen to today:

    Also, not video game music, but I did find this:

    Here is a 1973 - 1975 behind the drum kit perspective.....

    Please!!!!! Anyone have a 1977, 1979, or 1980 view of the stainless Steel kit from this angle????




    I can't tell if anything is obscured, but is Bonham really using a single snare drum in that photo?

    ive only listened to it through you tube. There's one or two different clips . I remember hearing one where someone had put what sounded like an RP vocal fill in. Can't find that one anymore? 

    I suppose those don't count as boots. What's the best way of hearing it? 


  6. Here's the lyrics I wrote for it:

    Verse 1:

    From the clouds came the rain
    The passage of time begins again
    Upon this uneven journey

    Verse 2:

    The sun of this world it shines
    Showing how the world declines
    As we drift away from the truth


    The moon enlightens the path
    The evil one will show his wrath
    The world had peace, long ago

    Verse 3:

    The land we kept so pure
    Has caused the change to endure
    The suffering of the few

    Verse 4:

    Standing at the door of the globe
    Wishing the pain and misey would go
    My sorrows are all left in the snow


    From the clouds came the rain
    The passage of time begins again
    Upon this uneven journey

    It's good and beautiful, but it needs more structure and the main riff, is a bit to similar to The rain song, but obviously different.


    So it's a nice piece of music. Thank you for it!

    Thanks for the feedback. i didn't even have the rain song in mind when I wrote it. The tuning I used for the 6 string (DGDFCD) is similar to The Rain Song (DGCGCD), so I imagine that's why it sounds similar.

    I'm constantly trying to improve my songwriting skills.

  8. i bought it a while ago, and gave it another go. it's quite a good album, but Jimmy seems a bit restrained throughout. Alot of the guitar parts seemed very un page like. Coverdale Page seemed more like something that Page would have wrote and performed. Also, page should have produced it. It seemes a bit Murky in some places.

    Coverdale Page is much better, as is Outrider IMO. I'll always be a Page fan before a Zeppelin fan, and as a Artistic Statement for Page, Walking into Clarksdale seems very restrained.

  9. Hey All.

    This is a piece that worked on for College. At the moment, it has no vocals, even though I have lyrics written up for them.

    I wanted to have a piece that featured a strange tuning, with a droning open string playing throughout the piece.

     It features a strangely tuned 6 string Acoustic guitar, with a standard tuned 12 string Acoustic Guitar during the chorus.

    I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on it
