  1. its ok, heard zep 2 scrapping bottom of the barrel though
  2. shite, no-one tell chuck berry, he'd have a field day with j b goode
  3. .., im a big a fan of this band as anyone, but i find this a dreadful film, was very happy when the dvd was released so that imho, concert footage of good quality was made available.don't think ive ever endured the whole film without turning it off or loosing the will to live.
  4. may i suggest an album: mingus ah um, by charles mingus...you maybe able to listen to it without purchasing on spotilfy.
  5. i used to idolise the beatles, cant listen to them anymore, find that their music sounds very dated and hasnt aged too well.
  6. hello,

    greetings from england, memories of nov 10 2007 will stay with me forever. take it easy,


  7. Presence is an Under-rated album, but not in my Book. Please look out for the DVD named "Past-Present- & Future", it really is a Diamond. All the best, Hang-man -
  8. who gives a shit ?? its a good song, infact the older i get, the more i'm convinced it's one the the best pieces of a guitar/bass/drum set up by anyone. if any other band had written a song half as good as this, including queen, they would of made a mess of their pants. this song shows zep really spreading their wings i9n the latter half of their career, this piece is as deep as a chopin nocturne or a bach fugue.
  9. ...i find the lyrics to this song, like a few off the last couple of albums, very dark and foreboding. whatever the song is about, it's almost like an ominous warning. an excellent song that stands up against any of their best. great middle section, then the band return for another verse and chorus. great bass drum work by bonzon before the page's guitar lick at the end, and a hint of plant's love of eastern singing during a great fade out chase. i remeber the first time i heard this song, still one of my top zep tunes.
  10. ....and the kneboworth version isn't too bad, either ! for me, the best song played live ever by the band imho.
  11. for me, ALS used to be a good song, in the last few years, imho, now i realise, (with the aid of a good quality playback system), the song in a masterpiece. the song, being so long, always grips me, and i dont find it indulgent, the phaser guitar parts always seem to climb, the solo (im my opinion) is possibly the best electric guitar solo of all time, the six verses are always rivetting, the added guitar refrains jsut add to it, the "mightly arms of atlas...hold the heaven from the earth" refrain, which occurs twice, is slightly different the 2nd time round, the second time there is yet another phaser guitar effect which adds to the constant yearning and relentless climbing i find in the song. i've realised that there are many many parts to this song, should you not be to fond of the song, may i suggest you play the song on a good stereo system or a good set of headphones, very loudly... the song is massive, add the various odd time signatures, the vari speed, the production and you have zeppelin at their most untouchable. bands have had multi platinum careers by picking off this carcass that is ALS
  12. are you some kind of bellend ? plant cannot be replaced, this isn't journey or flipping guns roses or frigging some other hair band, who replace members in their band, so that a few can carry the name forward and sell records due to their loyal fan base. stupid question. no fucker can replace robert in the band. this is all stupid talk by white trash who haven't got anything better to do.
  13. arhmet ertegun show, 10th dec 2007, 02 arena london
  14. ...you actually know him ? good for you it thats the case.
  15. ......so for being cynical, you say you know the great man ?
  16. the greatest single force in rock and roll = brian wilson. to think of his output from early '62 to the end of '66, 10 studio albums in that time, he was the songwriter, producer, arranger, player, singer. form 67 to 71 still made some insanely good music (regardless of smile) holland has 7 brian wilson songs on it, a great album, until i die on surfs up is so jazzy and incredible. time to get alone on friends is years ahead of it's time. pet sounds in stereo is a must, the guitar arrangements in sloop john b are crystal clear in the stereo version. genius is a word that we all bound about to often in this day and age, however b wilson ranks alongside j s bach. i fucking adore his music i'm a huge fan.
  17. anything by john coltrane, stevie wonder and roxy music, that's what i have beem listening to lately, and of course zep
  18. the proof is in the pudding, led zep have sold 300 million records worldwide, 115 million in the usa. it doesnt take a rocket scientist to realise that the remaining records have been sold in the major popular music markets (belive it or not, that inevitably includes europe and south america, japan australia etc)..........that's approx 180 million records...end of thread....good night....pointless discussion.... it's cool to knock led zeppelin....last yr 20 million people scambled to get tickets for their gig, in 1979, when they were considered out of fashion in a country "they were not that popular in" 400,000 people saw them in play 2 outdoor gigs, i'm off to play my les paul...
  19. trex ? pink floyd were not that big until dark side, how can they of been considered old farts by 1976 ? they were in their late 20's, except for page who was in his early 30's, they didn't play one show in the uk perhps because they did not want to...................disagree with this post.
  20. ........disgagree, zep as stated were mega in usa and canda, so to in th uk, in terms of albums sales the same as queen, just that queens' best of albums have been amongst the best selling albums of all time time here in the uk. there are many queen original albums that struggled to get into the top 5 album chart here, while all zeppelin albums hit the no#1 spot, except for the first lp. I think you'd be suprised if you found out how many albums zep sold in continental europe...come on, you talking about a band that sold a lot of records, they sold as many albums in their 12 years together, as queen did in almost 20 years of existance with mercury, so inevitably they would of been just as popular as any other 70's band in europe, asia, etc.
  21. thx for help everyone, very much appreciated. have a good weekend, btw, im likely to visit bonzo in may/june
  22. hi all, i'm looking to go to to john bonham's grave, has anyone been ? is it easy to find ? I know he was buried in Rushock, Worcestershire parish church, is Rushock a village or small town ? Are there any landmarks near the site that can act as a beacon, thus enabling me to find it easier ? I've looked on the net but it information appears a bit vague, btw i live in buckinghamshire. Any help will be much appreciated, Barrios
  23. ive seen some silly things on this site, but how can such a lumpen, hamfisted, and rhythmically band have given zep a run for their money, in their dreams, perhaps ?
  24. come on, let's face it, r head are second rate, just that people are starved of good music, and when r head become seuccessful, people thought they we great, when they are in actual fact a second rate p floyd.
