  1. Graham Bond, the potential member of Cream that Robert Stigwood wouldnt sign, believed in magic, had friends who left England to escape curses. Graham Bond had other problems before he died in 1974, but curses rank as one of them. Some kind of battle seemed to break out between witchy brethren of the 60s. Page was famously rumored cursed by Kenneth Anger around this time. The fog of drugs limits the ability to pin the blame, but Jimmy has been running, walking and crawling against the wind since 1975.
  2. D'Yer Makr was the first and only Led Zeppelin song I heard for a long time, and I liked it not. In NYC the soul radio would play that track only, prolly cuz Zep played so many shows at MSG in 1977. On this station I heard "Have a cigar" by Pink Floyd but it was in disco format and with female voices. I thought that's how it was for 3 years. In 1979 I started hearing all the rock they call classic now. It was new to me and I was the right age to hear it.
  3. Seems like they got into a fight or something.. a quarrel. There was some build up, some fanfare, then ice. Meanwhile bootlegs are arriving, getting better, while showing that the best band in the world can't be perfect, ever. I miss Jimmy Page. I wish he'd do something new.
  4. Os Mutantes in the late 1960s: Video clip: https://binged.it/2w8leSR
  5. They should have had Iron Butterfly play, who were sounding good that year, well rehearsed and stage tested.
  6. We had to live with that gig for a long time.
  7. How old you are has an effect on how critical you might be. I was a grocery delivery boy in 1995. Myself and Marcos, my supervisor agreed, we'd be happy just seeing Jimmy Page hold a guitar on stage with Robert Plant. Unledded had kept our expectations low to moderate. Boy was I surprised how good the Garden shows were. I would have taken anythng. Oh yeah and #freedom. Say what you want, when you want.
  8. I only recently heard "Saccharine" by Coverdale Page, and only recently learned that the wonderful Shake my Tree riff may have been around since 1980. Those two tracks have me in a sort of funk about a lost Zeppelin album. I could populate an entire album of what ifs.. What if the very happy vibe of Summer 1980 had a riff laden happy ending... It's a whole topic to me. Not sure if y'all agree.
  9. I see you and raise you one.. I think it's "Closer". Same riff, uptempo/downtempo.
  10. When the first The Firm record came out, a WBCN dj, prolly Charles Laquidara remarked about Jimmy Page having "finger amnesia", a comment he had to walk back due to fan phone calls. When the HTWWW live lp came out the radio folks said it had the same problems as TSRTS. Again fan blitz on phone caused on air walk back. I'm here because im not a normal fan, I am a Zeppelin addict. I reserve the right to be critical, be dissapointed, give praise and generally speak my mind. #Freedom. Ive been riding this bronco a loooong time, and the good times ended just as I became musically conscious.. One summer when the sun was yellow, the sky was blue, and music faces were glowing.
  11. It's generous of the Zeppelin to even consider filling for the Stones at the Jazz festival. 2 short notice for a typical set, but seems like a good opportunity to do covers..
  12. I was over the moon when I read Albini would be producing the studio album. It's such a shock to hear Robert unannounced on the radio when you haven't heard him in a while and you realize just who you're listening to. "A golden horse" was what was playing, and my announcement that the album dropped. I was not amused. Unamused listener. Went to the local shows anyway. Excellent choice.
  13. Meanwhile, seems I'm amoung the most recent to hear this..
  14. My grandmother gave me a Rachmaninoff record that year. After a while I decided I did not like the sound of the sustain pedal being down all the time. I disapprove of grand piano with Zep. 1975 and 77 tours remind me of the Rachmaninoff fad of the mid 70s.
  15. #stonerrock Sounds like FuManchu. 420. PS: Did u know u can clean ur bong with kettle water and dish soap? Make sure to empty the bong baby into a a double bagged paper shopping bag. Keep it out of the plumbing!
  16. The best and worst live rock band. "When they were good they were very good when they were bad they were horrid". Sometimes Bonham is just taking a piss, or deliberately playing random during familiar improv sections. What if Bonham is cantankerous, uncooperative? Page has to keep it together.. but if Page is stuck in a rut with his solo, Bonham rebels in real time. Repitition was the root of Zep's problems, the set stops being free with the addition of LZ IV songs. By 1973 the drummer is rebelling during jams. DAC goes from improv vehicle to energy depleting dead end featuring frustrated drummer.
  17. Steve A Jones once reccommended Huey Lewis as singer for PB & J band. Leona Lewis is the only other voice that raised my armhair doing Zep.
  18. So far the 50th seems to be about bootlegs on youtube, which are arriving at a steady pace, and stuff I havent heard. "How the East was won" was posted recently. Just lately I've been listening to this.. Awesome and yet still hit or miss..
