  1. Hello, I'm not sure if this sort of thing is allowed here but I'm a big Bonham guy and have recently started uploading to YouTube. I figured what better place to advertise this than a Zeppelin forum? Check it out if you're interested. I will be making videos regularly and I do take requests. Thanks. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkDSUgHcpgYo9YJ0z6pxSzQ
  2. Thank you. 26 kick actually. The mic setup is two overhead mics, one bass mic on the reso head.
  3. If you're only a studio album guy, this might sound a bit weird. Very live Zep influenced.
  4. Does anyone else think they should have just scrapped Hot Dog off ITTOD and put Darlene instead? It's gold, and clearly a better song than Hot Dog. It was recorded at the ITTOD sessions. No clue why they left it out.
  5. IpMan, Fellow Chopin-head here. How well do you know his music? The ballades, scherzi, sonatas? Please don't tell me you're one of those people who say they like Chopin but can only name a couple nocturnes! (haha)
  6. Presence is gold, although Candy Store Rock is sort of a throwaway.
  7. Black Sabbath should not be mentioned in the same breath as Led Zeppelin. They are a third class act.
  8. Sorry to bump this old thread, but as a lover of both Led Zeppelin and certain classical composers, I had to get a word in here. Obviously Jimmy Page is a genius. Just because his music is simpler than the classical composers doesn't mean it's of any less quality. It's only simpler because of the era he was born in. I guarantee if he had been born in the 1800's he would be mentioned in the same breath as Chopin, Brahms, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, etc. That's not to say complexity equals quality. Quite the contrary. It takes a true genius to make something brilliant yet simple. Musical architects such as Bach and Beethoven often bore the shit out of me, while more concise composers like Chopin and Debussy touch me greatly. Having said that, it's important to remember that the very specific level of complexity in Led Zeppelin's music is intrinsic to the greatness of it. If it were any different, it wouldn't be Zep. Genius is genius, regardless of complexity or medium. Such judgements should be made on a case by case basis.
