  1. i want Houston 1977 for ZZ Top as well as Zeppelin....and lets not stop there, GIVE US PONTIAC! its hiding somewhere, someone has seen these shows and all the skeptical people on here will seem strange by the end of this
  2. at first the pickups were stock Epiphone / Gibson pickups (whichever Epiphone have installed in their stock guitars) and they were fuzzier than hell, absolutely were abysmal to play with. my cousin, Chase, a very skilled guitar maker himself / technician / tone freak told me about a buddy he had who was selling a 1959 Gibson Les Paul. i was about 15 and knew i couldnt afford it but just wanted to see the thing. we went over and i checked it out and was in awe the whole time and had a crazy idea from reading all kinds of Eddie Van Halen Guitar magazine interviews where he'd do a lot of trial an
  3. ive never heard these kinda sounds for Jimmys guitar pre-1974 pre MXR Phase 90 and it sounds a little more watery than a Phaser ? it sounds almost like a Leslie organ speaker infected guitar, its very chorusy sounding this is from bonzo's birthday party May 31, 1973
  4. strange...because its Zeppelin at their most sunny and stoned...its upbeat in a good way.
  5. yeah jetcat that was an awesome story man! i think everyone here who never had the chance to see them cannot believe how amazing it must have been for someone like you to see them 6 times it was? jesus..and in 3 different eras. one question: how was When The Levee Breaks live, my good sir??
  6. crazy thread guys, im loving it....does anyone have any photos of Jimmy on the night of this fateful show?
  7. probably because they were EASY and they relaxed themselves too much because theyd played those songs so much or just Jimmy let his heroin high swallow his fingers during those songs???? I dunno i was seriously wondering that too , like THIS IS THE MOST INSANE SONG TO PLAY AND HES ALWAYS ON but with the others that have some complex parts but that Jimmy could play in his sleep.....its maybe they got too content sometimes, especially Jimmy
  8. 5/25/1975 is one amazing one, and the first i ever heard as it was on the Zeppelin DVD (watch it'll be a composite of the 24th and 25th or some shit) but after just having listened to 6/22/1977, and having my mind blown by the Lemon Song snippet....I JUST HAVE TO SAY ITS BETTER THAN THE "YOU SHOOK ME" segment that sometimes sounded very very good, but this bversion is relentless. so its gotta go to 6/22/1977, and yes the 1977 versions are way more sinister
  9. whoever that kid is, he's a fucking badass and might be the only thing getting Zeppelin back together it seems Robert was really touched by the kid
  10. D'Yer Mak'er woulda been a brilliant one live guys. so would have In The Light, Houses of The Holy, Custard Pie, Hey Hey What Can I Do, The Rover, Gallows Pole, Four Sticks, When The Levee Breaks (how in the hell they thought this sucked live is a testament to their horrible decisions sometimes) .... 1971 US tour: (set list addings) Gallows Pole, Four Sticks (maybe every other show?), Misty Mountain Hop, Friends of course, 1973 US Tour: (set list addings) full Crunge, D'yer Mak'er at least tried out a couple times, what about Houses of the Holy right here too? wouldnt hearing a track l
  11. And You know How It is, you smart ass hahahah awesomely true though
  12. what i would give to be at one of these Zeppelin marathons: Boston Tea Party 1969, LA Forum 1970, MSG 1970, Electric Magic Show 1971, LA Forum 1972, Seattle Center Coliseum 1972, Seattle 1975, LA 1975, Nassau Coliseum 1975, all Earls Court 1975 shows, all LA shows 1977...jesus....just to have recordings of all of those shows is a huge huge thing
  13. FUCK YEAH!!! ME TOO!!!! love BCW and all the other Houses songs on this night 1972 west coast was insanity ! who can argue with Dancing Days twice
  14. and some of the photos and audience descriptions on zeppelin.com have been VERY intriguing. my father went to the Salt Palace 1973 show and was stationed on the East Coast in the mid seventies and was able to see the Nassau Coliseum show in 1975, he couldnt remember if it was the 13th or 14th but he did say Robert kept saying something about "St. Valentine" and i just started laughing cause i told him "well...YEAH CAUSE IT WAS VALENTINE'S DAY" so he was at the 14th too (thank god he wasnt with my mom yet or she woulda kicked his ass forgetting Valentine's Day ) he said he had a buddy too wh
