    Favorite Movies of Musicians?

    I just read that the movie that left the most profound impact on Jim Morrison was "Ana-ta-Han" which was also directed by his teacher at UCLA - Josef von Sternberg... It's a great movie, I'd give it a 10/10... Luckily for all you movie lovers, it's on YouTube in full.. Really experimental and original movie.

    What song is stuck in your head?

    John Fogerty - Zanz Kant Danz (and CCR's "Effigy")

    Favorite Movies of Musicians?

    Read yesterday (and before many times) that John Lennon loved "The Lost Weekend" directed by Billy Wilder.. I loved Ray Milland's performance in that one.

    The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    Surprised the Pistons got Blake Griffin... Looked good last night. I still think it's going to be the Celtics-Cavaliers in the East... I wouldn't worry about GS - they'll rest a guy now so they're healthy by the WCF. Plus, they have a lot of great players not only to make up the slack, but to give them real game experience.

    I did a quick search of that page, surprised there was no mention how Metallica bought the movie rights to "Johnny Got His Gun" (for the music video of "One") which is a fine movie!

    Favorite Movies of Musicians?

    I've been meaning to see it, but I've never been a fan with no script, lol.. (This is how it was described to me by a friend).. I read in one of my many Zep books that Robert Plant "liked to smoke pot and read JR Tolken" (don't remember if there was a mention of movies).

    I never heard any member of Zeppelin mention a favorite movie, but it doesn't matter who.... I just heard John Fogerty mention some great movies (The Devil and Daniel Webster and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) and thought to myself, "The best usually love the best" - and might find some great recommendations this way, but I think you can tell more about someone's movie interests than their music.. I'd say the same for comedy. John Lennon mentioned he was a fan of Orson Welles and Fellini.. Once mentioned "Citizen Kane". Roger Waters liked "El Topo".
  9. If you can rank your favorite bands, the better... Or special songs. But especially underrated stuff that many might not know.. Pink Floyd Supertramp The Doors The Beatles Led Zeppelin The Who Steely Dan Eagles David Bowie ELO America The Rolling Stones Fleetwood Mac Jimi Hendrix Neil Young Bob Marley Black Sabbath Elton John Billy Joel Three Dog Night Jefferson Airplane/Starship The Police Dire Straits Genesis (Gabriel era) CSNY The Bee Gees The Carpenters The Stylistics The Delfonics Cream Wings Jethro Tull Queen Gordon Lightfoot Bob Seger Love Alice Cooper The Guess Who Todd Rundgren Bob Dylan Santana Underrated Artist - Sixto Rodriguez ("Forget It" is my favorite of his) Underrated Songs - Harry Nilsson - Lean On Me (not the hit) Shawn Phillips - (Breakthrough, I Took A Walk) Paul McCartney - Old Siam, Sir Fairuz - Al Bosta...................Phil Ochs - Changes................Woody Guthrie - Which Side Are You On? There are some good non-mainstream prog rock bands like Camel, Spiro Gyra, Tai Phong, T2, etc... Personally, the 60s and 70s are my aims. I like the sad songs, but I like soul/folk/funk/disco.. Vocals are very important, I like tenors and falsetto, using vibrato, quavers... Music to me is much more important than the lyrics. In fact, the phrasing/rhythm of the vocal is probably more important now that I think of it, but the quality of the voice. Can't wait to hear your thoughts -- I love the eclectic tastes in here!
  10. You'd be surprised how many were/are trendy.... When public opinion is on someone's side, they jump all over it. And vice-versa..... For example, Rolling Stone magazine would say how Zeppelin (Floyd and many other legends) was a "fad" or "awful" but once it was established by everyone (conformity), they'd get a different writer to "update".
  11. When a member of Led Zeppelin did an interview 40 years ago, they had no idea this would all be accessible thanks to internet, youtube, etc... If you read enough, you can sometimes see an overlap of information, and sometimes you see a change... Doesn't have to be a "gotchya" moment, just a way to get the full truth, and maybe to see why the same question asked at one time, has a totally different answer later on. If we put our heads together, we can get closer to the truth.

    Other Bands/Artists Who LOVED Led Zeppelin?

    Nice short Billy Joel interview clip -- never saw that.. I love "The Nylon Curtain" just as much as "The Stranger" When Jimmy said "I'll have something big next year" as in touring (2016) I thought maybe he was the guitarist in the rumored Billy Joel, Don Henley, and Sting supergroup.

    Little Things You Don't Like About Led Zeppelin?

    Supertramp doesn't even have a forum.... Not a single book has been written about them, either.

    Other Bands/Artists Who LOVED Led Zeppelin?

    Well, as long as they are in the jann wenner hall of fame! I like Rush, saw them in concert, but they have gone down the list (mostly because of other bands).
