  1. Agree with Stryder. I Look at it this way: Assume the world ends....a few survive, as always happens. Decades turn to centuries and technology slowly comes back. Finally someone finds or rebuilds an 8 track or cassette player and gets it to work... Okay, far fetched I know but ..... which Zep song would you want to survive, which ONE Zeppelin song would you want the people to hear? Gotta be Stairway To Heaven!
  2. And I'm hoping against hope that JP has, somewhere stashed away....unheard studio material....even an unfinished song..., like we got the last few years (10 ribs, LaLA, etc). I LOVED that stuff!

    Wow! It finally happened!!!

    Another true story. I would drive from Ohio to either Wyoming or Montana every August or September for a backpacking trip. I think my 1988 Chevy S-10 was my first vehicle with a radio that had the ability to scan. So starting with the 1989 trip I would let the radio scan and would only stop it for Zeppelin or something else really good (Highway Star, Uriah Heep stuff, etc). I remember hearing Zep all the time during the 2 day drive out and the 2 day drive back. Yes I could have popped in a cassette but it was more fun to find the variety scanning offered. There was a cool station in Minnesota or South Dakota that called September the "Month of Zeptember" and would play the heck out of Zep. I just loved it! Anyway, I just did my 30th trip last year for the eclipse and a small backpack trip, after a 5 year lapse (taking care of my ailing parents). So once again I leave NE Ohio and let the radio scan. 2 days out, then a week later 2 days back. Thats a lot of radio. TOTAL tally: 4 Zeppelin songs! Thats it! On the way out , of course FITR (Grrrrrr!!!). On the way back, of course FITR , then nearing Lincoln Nebraska: Kashmir, then later All of my Love. Thats it. Unbelievable. What happened?
  4. While driving today I was scanning the radio trying to find some Zep. I did ...... it was NOT Fool In The Rain!!! Finally!!!! Sure hope the DJ doesnt get reprimanded for playing Ramble On instead.

    Robert meets up with Jimmy & JPJ recently

    Oh my gosh every time I think, "Ok Dan, cut plant some slack", I read an article like the one linked to here. Elle King = yes, JPJ and Pagey = No. Wow. Really? What a slap in his former friends faces. In my mind he is about 2 steps away from "Diva Category".
  6. After plants first solo album which I like, I consider the rest to be mostly junk, but admittedly do like 29 Palms.
  7. Right on jsj. What I don't get is the inconsistency of the CODA naysayers. On the one hand they say "CODA isn't really an album because its nothing but songs leftover from other albums" then they will go on to say "Houses of the Holy (the song) is awesome" even tho on PG its a "leftover" from HOTH album! There are several other examples of songs written for albums that were not used on that album, only to appear on later ones. Of course these are regarded as "official" LZ songs. Then of course there is Hey Hey what Can I do, which isn't on ANY studio album, and also Traveling Riverside Blues. So...Wearing and Tearing, Darlene, Walters Walk, Poor Tom.....I LOVE all of those, all are on CODA, it IS a Led Zeppelin Album, and it is a GREAT album! Their best? No, but still a GREAT album.

    Weakest Studio Album Opening Track

    Haha thanks! But I'm probably older than you. I was 16 when ALS was released, not a preteen!! But thank you again, it would be nice to be 5 or 6 years younger right now! Frankly while I LOVE their early albums too, I just cannot stand listening to their early concerts. Sometimes I am actually embarrassed FOR them when they do that weird stuff I cant stand.
  9. I wish the three of them (JP, JPJ, and Jason B ) would ask plant to finish some unfinished songs like Lala, 10 ribs, St Tristam's Sword Midnight Moonlight, and others, with a few new songs, to make up one last album. When he says no then get another singer (GVH singer?) and JUST DO IT. Yes it would STILL be Zeppelin for me. I wonder if on an AC/DC forum everyone considers every song after Bon Scott to be "not AC/DC"? I know Uriah Heep fans are fans until the end, and the rabid AC/DC fans still consider them to be AC/DC, and the Eagles fans don't have trouble with post Joe Walsh, and a lot of Van Halen fans think VH is BETTER after their original singer left. It just seems to be Zep fans that are against it and I just don't understand why. Was Jason THAT BAD at O2? Of course not. He wasn't his Dad but he never said he was and no one expected him to be and he was still great and they made fantastic music! Im over it. There will never be John Bonham drumming again. Plant will never do Zeppelin again. Okay. Find someone qualified who will. JP, JPJ, Jason and whoever could finish out the Zeppelin half finished songs. (My hunch is....once plant sees it moving forward without him, his ego in not having a say in Zeppelin would cause him to actually sign on).
  10. LOVED the music from this movie. LOVED IT. Bought it on vinyl when it came out. Went to see the movie in Youngstown Ohio the first night it showed taking several of my zep buddies with me. Major disappointment. The music was great, the concert footage was great, but those fantasy sequences????? What????? They dragged on and on. Im not into, and never have been into, that 'woo-woo" stuff (for lack of a better word). Recently watched the movie again to see if I have changed. Nope... But I still crank the album!
  11. Achilles. Not my favorite Zep song, but one of the top ones for me and if I had to pick ONE for posterity it would be this.

    Strongest Achilles Last stand. Weakest for me, GTBT. But then I MUCH prefer the mighty Zep from the mid 70s than the earlier stuff.

    Weakest Studio Album Opening Track

    My top two favorite zeppelin albums.
  14. Going way back to plants remark about where John Paul Jones was, when plant replied "He's out parking the car". What was the catalyst for that? Why did he have such animosity towards JPJ? Was there a long simmering fued between them? I mean, plant isn't exactly an idiot...he had to know it would get back to JPJ. I dont recall any friction between them during their heyday. Any ideas?
  15. Besides being a Led head, I am a HUGE HUGE Apollo fan. Can you provide a link that details what plant said about the Landings, what he recalls about it? Thanks!
