    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    I'm looking forward to that Bundy biopic.

    Long Live Led Zeppelin

    As someone who lives in the sticks and doesn't have the fastest internet, I actually prefer 320 mp3s. Much faster download and doesn't overwhelm my hard drive.

    The Rest in Peace Thread

    Dick Dale was an untouchable legend. Talk about a right hand. Edit: Err...left hand. Oof.

    RIVAL SONS, from Los Angeles

    I know GVF is the front-running scapegoat for a Zep clone, but I have to say that without a doubt, Rival Sons are the absolute most obvious rip-off artists as far as Zep is concerned. The vocalist for GVF might sound pretty similar to Plant on a couple songs, but the music itself isn't very close. However, Rival Sons are almost verbatim copying Zep riffs and slightly twisting them to their own format (to avoid copyright). I'm actually completely amazed that GVF is getting so much flack compared to these guys. And how it's been ignored and overlooked is nothing short of phenomenal.

    Backstage arguments?

    I think Bonham's drinking would've been the main issue early on, as there was certainly one show in 69 where he was unable to perform. I can't imagine Page ripping into him for it, especially someone as irreplaceable as Bonzo. He might've suggested he ease up a bit until after the show lol. I'm sure as long as most shows were solid and the money was rolling in, nobody criticized anybody. So from 73 to the end, I highly doubt there was any arguing over performances. They may not have been intimidated by Page, but I guarantee they knew what they had with him at the helm. Whether he was good or bad on any night, he was still bringing in the crowds and he was still the bandleader.

    Random Thoughts v.3

    Vodka is the purest of most 80+ alcohol and has less toxins than than whiskey, bourbon, or scotch. It's actually the best hangover you'll have. 1-2 hour hangover? LOL. My vote goes for severe food poisoning. Absolutely the worst pain I've ever felt. Like someone poured gas in my stomach and flicked in a match.

    I think it's gonna be chord by chord this time.

    Make Your Own Poster

    Plenty of live shots on posters, but how about a casual one?

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    Well, yeah, but I was wondering which set had the best physical packaging. Just from a collecting standpoint.
  10. Which is the best of these box sets? I see them pop up on eBay every so often but I'm not sure of the differences.

    Excellent death/grind metal. Underrated band.

    An instrumental inspired by "Levee".

    All me. Guitars are live, everything else is programmed.
  13. I'll take a 30 minute drum solo over any extended jam the Grateful Dead did.

    Not so hot Zep songs

    I read that was a poem he wrote for Maureen and Page really had to push him to use it in a song.

    Much appreciated, guys. I miss having time to record.
