    Song recomendations

    Listen to all of the songs and then go back and listen again. If you think you don't like a song, give it a break and try it again, I guarantee you'll find something you'll like about it

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    III is my favorite. Course, I wasn't around back then, but I'm sure I would have felt the same way if I was

    How the West Was Won Album Cover

    Anyone else love this album cover? I think the photos of the band are some of the best I've seen.

    Greta Van Fleet

    Their song "When the Curtain Falls" has an identical guitar lick to "In the Evening", but you know, that just makes me like the song more. It's a totally different song in every other way. And, they did win a Grammy, so there's that πŸ™‚
  5. I searched and didn't see if this topic was already discussed, so apologies if it's repetitive. Who else likes hearing Zep pop up in unexpected places? I'm generally not the biggest hip hop fan but loved to hear one of my all time favorites, Ten Years Gone, sampled throughout this Tupac track

    Greta Van Fleet

    I'm a Greta lover so I'll forgive them their ridiculous sartorial choices (as I cringe when looking at photos of myself at that age!) while I await seeing them live in May.

    Greta Van Fleet

    They did seem really nervous and it also seemed like they weren't actually playing their instruments, but all in all, I thought they did a good job, especially on the 2nd song once they warmed up a bit. I'm not sure where they were going with the clothing. Do they dress themselves or do they have help? If they have help, who is this misguided person? I feel like people would take them more seriously if they toned down the look a bit. They look like they're dressed up for Halloween as "hippies".

    The space before the live decline

    Just a note regarding spontaneity and live performance dynamics.... it's a special skill / talent to be able to jam and not all bands can pull it off. I read something once where Pete Townshend sat in with the Grateful Dead and noted how difficult it was to play with them because they kept going off on side jams. There has to be a good synergy between the members for successful jamming without it descending into chaos. I haven't heard much live Stones (or seen them live) but I did see Metallica in 2017 and aside from one drum / bass solo, they play their songs pretty much note for note from the album. My brother saw them on the same tour in a different city and the band had to take a break due to a lightning storm. "Ride the Lightning" wasn't on their set list but when they came back on, they started to play it... but after a few bars, they went back to their previously planned set list. It's not a knock on skill or talent, but some bands can be spontaneous and some can't. Different strokes

    Physical Graffitti vs. Exile on Main St.

    Agree 100%. No disrespect to Brian Jones (RIP) or Ronnie Wood, but the Mick Taylor-era Stones were at their pinnacle

    Why did they not play at woodstock

    The organ you're referring to is located in Ocean Grove, NJ, the town next to Asbury Park. It would be AMAZING to hear JPJ play on that thing! I grew up near there and we referred to Ocean Grove as "Ocean Grave" because everyone that lived there was so freaking old. Also, all summer, there is a tent camp revival in "God's Square" right outside the Great Auditorium where the organ is housed. I had no idea that Zep played Asbury Park - if the tent camping bible thumpers were around, that would have been quite a culture clash!

    Physical Graffitti vs. Exile on Main St.

    PG for me! I like the Stones quite a bit, but like someone else on this thread said years ago... they just don't touch me the same way Zep does. Zep is like part of my very being, whereas the Stones are just great music. Also, there are always a couple of songs on every Stones album that I just cannot stand and I can't say that for any Zep albums.

    Greta Van Fleet

    I love their new album and I have tickets to see them in May. Also may even be able to stay up to watch SNL tonight. I don't get the hate. If anyone saw the absolutely shambolic performance by Imagine Dragons at the NCAA football championship halftime show, that's the state of music today. I am 100% behind young people writing and playing their own music (even if "inspired" by the greats that came before them).

    Best 14 Led Zeppelin Love Songs

    They left off Trampled Underfoot! πŸ˜‰ Totally agree, IMHO, the "love songs" of Zep are comprised of Ten Years Gone, Thank You, All My Love and Rain Song.

    Photoshop awesome!

    HAH, these are awesome!

    The Lemon Song (studio)

    One of my favorite Zep songs!

    Rap Thread

    I prefer rap / hip hop up through the mid-90's. After that, it's all the same to me. This Tupac samples "Ten Years Gone", so I'm a fan

    What’s the greatest lyrical line in music?

    That's a great one! I think great lyrics can be divided into two camps; a) ones that are lyrically beautiful; poetry set to music, and b) ones that touch the listener in a deep and meaningful way. While I do listen to other bands besides Led Zeppelin, my favorite is "We are eagles of one nest, the nest is in our soul" (that would fall into category b) Also love the line from Greta van Fleet "Edge of Darkness" - All my brothers we standFor the peace of the landIs there meaning?I've got love in my heartFor an army apart I am bleeding Also category b

    How loud were Led Zeppelin concerts?

    I was on the floor for Metallica last year. Not only was it LOUD, they had these fire flares on the stage and I was close enough that I could feel the heat when they went off. My ears were ringing for days afterwards. It was AWESOME!
  21. Night Flight is a totally underrated song. I love it.

    What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

    As luck would have it, I got an email about pre-sale tickets for GRETA VAN FLEET in Miami, where I live! Got 7th row seats - concert is in Miami. I cannot wait!
