  1. thanks for the quick replies! ill check out dadgads first.
  2. does anyone know the best quality boot for zeps second berkeley show; september 14th 1971. doesnt matter if its cd or lp. I know there is berkeley daze from godfather and going to california from cobra. they are both from the same source. just trying to find the one that has better sound quality.
  3. it is not totally original. if you listen to robert johnsons music a lot of it is the same but he had very specific licks and phrases which jimmy used for their version. obviously it sounds very different but you can hear where jimmy got a lot of the phrasing for their version just overall from robert johnson.
  4. a bunch of people. all the people are listed in the videos description.
  5. he played here in seattle last year. not a full set but at least it was something.
  6. I saw this in yesterdays paper. seattle times. mention of jimmy starting in the middle paragraph.
  7. I think it should be "most influential" not "best". sibly is better than stairway imo but the phrasing and licks of the stairway solo are more iconic and memorable. sibly is a lot of really fast licks and it is a deeper cut so not as many people know the song . also I think many of the guitarists on there have much better songs that should have been considered, tony iommi has way better solos than paranoid; children of the grave, planet caravan, symptom of the universe just to name a few. comfortable numb should be #1 imo. jimmys my favorite guitarist but credit where credit is due. I have never heard another solo like it that wasnt an attempt to copy it.
  8. he looks so different with his hair like that.
  9. brian may has been quoted saying he was zeppelins biggest fans. here is paul stanley talks about missing the o2 show and seeing them in 1969 (although he says 68).
  10. that was at knebworth but not for the zeppelin show. it was for the fair in 1976. they were watching the rolling stones. oddly enough, despite crossing paths on numerous occasions, I have never heard anything from jimmy page and david gilmour working together or even mentioning each other. they both are good friends with roy harper, jimmy played on one of roys albums that david gilmour produced and yet the never talked about each other. I know robert plant and david gilmour are friends or at least acquaintances. I believe this photo was taken at davids birthday party or something. there are a few others
  11. jimi hendrix said "I dont think much of them, jimmy page is a good guitar player". there are plenty of haters, jack bruce, ginger baker, eric clapton, pete townshend. I heard jim morrison said he didnt like them either but I never saw a legit source.
  12. it is pretty hard to gauge the validity of all the stories because as they recount them over the years the stories always change. during the interview with jimmy and robert the day that jimmy hendrix died, robert says he didnt know jimi but then later recounts that at a show jimi came up to he and bonzo and said that bonzo had a foot like a rabbit. in that same interview jimmy says yes, he met him a few times but then later says that he only met him once but hendrix was so burned out he probably didnt even notice he was there.
  13. seeing jimmy trying to exercise would truly be one of the greatest things ever . it seems like robert was at least mildly athletic as he did like soccer and was in great shape, although that was just his natural build. during one of their shows robert announce that bonzo had been more conscious of his health and managed to lose a bunch of weight on their time off and jonesy was always just a small guy.
  14. while I cant say I dislike it because it never happened, I would have loved for them to have reintroduced baby im gonna leave you when they started doing acoustic songs.
  15. live I don't delve much past 72. their on nights were few and far between later on imo. as for the good later shows, the energy changed and I just prefer the early stuff. compare sibly from tsrts to pure blues or blueberry hill and they seem like completely different songs.
  16. yeah, I was told the organ wasn't hooked up to the soundboard so it didn't get recorded.
  17. im sure they had their reasons. they probably just felt that the track listing was better that way. they also put bring it on home at the very end but they played it before the other two during the encore. they also took out heartbeaker, sibly, thank you and long tall sally.
  18. just talking about the angles, not the editing. when they filmed from the stage and the crowd the band looked like it had a much bigger presence. there is magic in the camerawork as well as the editing. film them from down low and up close and they look powerful and in charge, while when filmed from far away they just look like a group of guys mucking around on stage.
  19. too much money involved to just film them for posterity. 16mm and 35mm film were/are expensive. plus they have to have someone man the camera since they would have to constantly be swapping out the rolls of film. that means to get a perfectly synced show they would have to have at least two cameras otherwise there would be cuts between swapping out the film. as for the angles. I would much rather have a concert filmed like royal albert hall than australia 72. looks a lot better imo. I could go on....
  20. blueberry hill - when they are about to get into that's the way someone says "straight from the deli."
  21. I find these songs from each album are underrated: LZI: your time is gonna come LZII: thank you LZIII: friends, hats off LZIV: four sticks HOTH: dancing days Physical graffiti: in the light, down by the seaside, boogie with stu, black country woman presence: hots on for nowhere ITTOD: south bound saurez, im gonna crawl coda: wearing and tearing bbc sessions: something else HTWWW: hello mary lou
  22. it's pretty simple. you can see part of what he is doing here at 1:04. although it would be much simpler to just learn what key the song is in and work from that imo. if you want to see straight forward shots, look up slash playing it. he does it the same way. as for a htwww reissue, it may be a while. Im sure jimmy knows more than anyone that these are expensive and people arent going to want to buy all of them back to back to back. I think he will quit after the bbc sessions and move on to the yardbirds stuff for a while.
  23. I wouldn't totally blame peter grant. there just wasn't really a point to film a bunch of concerts back then. there wasn't sites like youtube (obviously ) to upload the footage so unless they were planning on releasing movies or it was to be broadcast on tv, filming show on a regular basis just wasn't logical. most of the footage from bands of the 60's - 70's we have now is either from tv specials, documentaries or from music festivals. as for bootleg footage, I doubt there would be much more even if peter grant didn't have his reputation, as the footage situation is basically the same for most bands of that era, a few clips from people in the crowd but not much and not that great of quality. I know jimmy didn't like the cameras much either so im sure it was just as much his decision to only film the shows when it felt right. led zeppelin at royal abert hall and tsrts, black sabbath at california jam and live in paris 1970, pink floyd live at pompeii, woodstock, ect.... all these performances were filmed with a purpose not just because they wanted to have the footage for future reference.
  24. royal albert hall 1970 - whole lotta love, when someone in the audience yells "woman!" and robert plant points and goes "ahh" blueberry hill - when robert says they are going to play sibly someone says "oh my god" and someone else says "beautiful". beautiful it was.
