    I read a lot of people saying this, but I don't really hear it that way. To me, Bonzo kept getting better and better, unlike poor Jimmy, who got worse and worse.

    The Crunge - Best Live Version

    What is the best live version of The Crunge? It doesn't necessarily have to be the most complete version, as far as I'm concerned, but which version do you think best expresses the whole idea of The Crunge? There are versions of it from some 72' boots and later ones as well. I think some of them were inserted into DAC in 72. Thoughts?

    Zep Songs You Didn't Like, But You Like Now

    I forgot one: The Crunge! I used hate, hate, hate it, but now I love it. It's genuine too. I didn't have to force it if you know what I mean.

    Me too, for years!

    D'yer Maker?

    Zepp fans who are too cool for school continually bash Dyer Maker, but I don't know why. It's one of their most recognizable and enduring songs, well known by non Zepp fans. It's a textbook example of a hit song too. Not only that, but it's yet another one of Zeppelin's songs where the drums make it instantly recognizable. That drum intro is simple and timeless. I think it's a great, fun song and it does what a song should do. It makes you tap your foot, it's got memorable parts, a memorable melody, a concise solo and it's easy to sing along to. It's a bright and cheery song too, and I find HOTH to be mostly bright and cheery sounding, which is nice for a change.

    Best Version of Black Dog Ever Played

    These are some great version to be sure, but imo, none of them are as heavy as 9-9-71. It's just thunderously smoking.

    Best Version of Black Dog Ever Played

    The version of Black Dog they played Sept 9, 1971 in Hampton (I have the Dead Battery boot) is the most aggressive, heaviest, badass version of this song I've ever heard. Period. The "Hey baby, Oh baby, Pretty baby, gotta get you moving now..." part is absolutely thunderous! One must only listen to this in the car with good speakers cranked up to 10 - no excuses and alternatives are not accepted.

    I agree with gibsonfan159 here. It just goes to show, no matter who you are, you can't be a heroin addict and still function as you did - even if you're Jimmy Page. If this band had stayed away from drinking and drugging and instead focused on their skills, the new heights they would have achieved would barely be expressible by words alone. Unfortunately, reality played out differently. Just imagine if 73' Page was just climbing up the ladder to the even better 75' page, and the 77-80 was even better than that. That's how it could have been. Stay away from drugs kids.

    Does anyone have any controversial opinions about Zep?

    Why not Black Dog and Heartbreaker?
