  1. This guy is tops for Bonham drum covers, Mr. Mojo Risin, the channel is Kick it Like Bonham. https://www.youtube.com/user/MrMojoRisin1967 He has drum covers of songs from several albums and live versions as well.
  2. Indeed, due to the january birth I think of Jimmy as almost 1943. So two years older!
  3. No. Despite his age it might be feasible (physically), but that requires dedication and a continous life as an active musician. Someone like that is John McLaughlin who' s one year older than Jimmy, and is still at it.
  4. If there was a choice, I would much rather see an official release of Japan 1971, not that a complete RAH wouldn't be nice.
  5. As far as I'm concerned the outro to Black Dog is perfect. In OTHAFA the solo is more of a compositional element than a solo, but it is kinda tame and the recorded version deserves better. This might be one of the few important songs in the Zep catalogue where the solo is lacking something vital. The live versions are more frenetic and "evil" than the record, but retain the general outline and mood of the album version.
  6. Well how can this be, since JPJ is not even credited as a writer on LLM? Yes, Black Dog is John Paul Jones's riff, but Heartbreaker? Where did you get that from? I remember reading somewhere that Living Loving Maid is indeed maybe the only song where Jimmy contributed most of the lyrics, if not all.
  7. Many musicians have had hit songs that over time they started to get bored with or practically hate. Some perform them despite that, because they feel an obligation to deliver what their audiences want, others stop. Then there's a third category, Robert Plant.
  8. The law and it's application is horrible at the moment. Here are two more examples that amount to copyrighting basic musical elements. Katy Perry vs. Flame: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ytoUuO-qvg Ed Sheeran vs. Marvin Gaye: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kt1DXu7dlo If musicians want to avoid being sued like this, the only option is to not make new original music.
  9. Listening to the new Osaka 1971 soundboards. I'm dizzy from astonishment.
  10. My favourite is 2/12/75: it's spirited, clear, dynamic, disciplined and has nice execution of the main ideas Page had for the solo. The blend of coke, booze and sobriety was about right. The 77 versions are too frenetic for my taste, suits TU fine, but not this.
  11. Inspired by this I had a listen to the first five tracks yesterday (on headphones, first CD version). I think reverb is an important part of the album's sound; Plant's voice has quite a lot of it. I was also surprised by the space JPJ's bass had on Lemon Song. Like you said Page let the band shine, he didn't splurge guitar all over the place on that one, even if it sounds like that. It's really dynamic and disciplined. On Heartbreaker I never realized there were three guitar tracks when the band comes in after the solo. So thanks for the idea. I don't often listen to music with concentration l
  12. LOL @lpMan! For me the Japan shows of 71 and most of 72-73 are all peak Jimmy. I think this is mainly about consistency, because there are patches of brilliance just about every year, if only for one song in a show. Then there's 1998. This is something I stumbled upon once.
  13. Jennings farm blues is my fave. 10 ribs & all is interesting. I can imagine a young Kate Bush singing on that one. Strangely enough Roy Harper has worked with both Jimmy and Kate, fact.
  14. Kind of glad to see I'm not the only one who skips Dazed, at least most of the time. The drum solos and noise solos I'll skip as well, but I usually enjoy IMTOD and trampled UF. Kashmir is sometimes just too plodding and repetitive for my taste. It's the one song where I disagree with the band and many fans. It's good, even great, but not even close to being their best song. I need to be in a certain kind of mood to want to listen to it.
  15. My perspective comes from another corner of the world, Finland, where merchandise and bootlegs were quite hard to come by at the time. I remember back then the (wannabe) tough guys in school listened to Twisted Sister, Wasp, Ratt etc. Everything else was for nerds or girls. In this situation some people knew about Zep and there seemed to be a kind of respect for it. But it was the (TV) video age and Zep wasn't on MTV at all, although towards the end of the decade there were occasional videos featuring Zep on Sky Channel's program Monsters of Rock. Alongside the metal bands of the time they loo
