    When I think of "greatest", guys like Satriani and Vai and Malmsteen just shouldn't even be on the list. Now, if the question was "most skilled" rather than "greatest", then sure. But let's be honest, if you polled 100 rock fans and asked them their favorite Steve Vai or Yngwie Malmsteen solo, maybe all of 3 out of the hundred would even be able to name one. Whereas if you asked those 100 rock fans to name their favorite solo by Page or Hendrix or Blackmore or Clapton or Van Halen, probably all 100 of them would have an answer.

    The point is you could be a brilliant guitarist, maybe more skilled than anyone ever, but if nobody can even name anything you've done, you just can not ever be considered among the greatest. Decades from now, the likelihood is that nobody will remember who the hell Yngwie Malmsteen even was, much less be able to name a single song he's done. But guys like Page, Clapton, Hendrix, people will be listening to them forever. That, I think, is the true measure of greatness. 

    I think that's mainly down to people like Page, EVH, Blackmore, Hendrix and Clapton are very capable songwriters, and often put that in front of Flashy guitar playing.

  2. This is the version I have:


    And as a person who just got into Blues at the time, I loved this CD. 

    I didn't realize that the original versions of these songs that Zeppelin covered were this good. Boogie Chillen is a brilliant, simple track with some great vocals, probably my favorite from the disk.

    I urge anyone to listen to it. Your love of Led Zeppelin will only increase with each track.

  3. Tea For One

    How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days? 
    Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days 
    A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way 
    Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow 
    I've been watchin for the hands to move 
    Until I just can't look no more 
    How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days? 
    A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way. 

    To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say 
    "Oh baby this one's for we two", Which in the end is you anyway 

    How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days? 
    A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way. 

    There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men 
    But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again 

    How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days? 
    A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way 
    A minute seems like a lifetime 
    When I feel this way...I feel this way

    Just curious. I love Landover 5/30 and recently got in to 4/28. Im not dismissing 4/27 but soooooo many better 77 shows.

    Jimmy seemed a bit off during the first destroyer gig.

    However, he was on the top of his game at the second gig, which is possibly the best show of the entire tour

  5. I don't think the music suffered. they were still writing classic tunes on Presence onwards. The problem lay in the fact that the members themselves suffered at the hands of addiction and sorrow, which brought upon creative differences and absence for the most part.

    The problem wasn't that they were writing bad material, it's that each member wanted different things from the material. The material wasn't bad, it was the creative 'glue' just wasn't there.

    If ambiguous notions like "concept" and "feel" are going to be the determining factors in musical copyright cases, rather than the actual notes, chords, and structure, then I see no reason for Led Zeppelin to NOT sue practically every hard rock band that came after them.

    Also If we are talking about sueing for some notes, then they should sue Whitesnake, as the Immigrant song riff appears in Still of the night.

    the length of the drum solos is fucked....as well as the inclusion of white summer. A longer acoustic set would have been much more welcome, in conjunction with 'tea for one' and 'for your life'. WTLB would also have been a brilliant addition. I actually quite enjoy the guitar solos though

    I don't mind White Summer. Quite a lot of the one's I have heard are very good.
