    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    The license to misremember things or to make up **** gets expanded the older one gets and the more drugs one has done....

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Just saw this on YT...I don’t know if this interview was published anywhere else...it’s about the first album only
  3. Thanks for all your hard work. This is fantastic!

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/jimmy-page-says-fans-will-definitely-be-getting-stuff-from-him-in-2019/ summary from the interview above: “I’ll be seen to be playing in 2019”...lol

    Can you list your top 10 LZ songs, in no particular order?

    Best Live Bass Solo

    Would add WLL/The Crunge from 3-21-75...he kills it....goes on for at least four minutes...one of my favorites

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    http://ledzeppelinconcert.com/ saw this site through Twitter, so I’m sharing...no chance of this happening but it’s a good idea imo....

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Where’s the chronological live album he says he’s been wanting to release for the last 40+ years? If I can just get that, I’ll forgive him the rest of his lollygagging...
  10. Why? At that point, likely Nickelback and Poison will have had better 50th anniversaries than this one is shaping up to be...why torture yourself to stay alive to experience this boredom again....

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/the-unoriginal-originality-of-led-zeppelin There's definitely been some bad rulings due to the broad, vague and confusing nature of the copyright laws as they pertain to music....LZ I think has a better case than Blurred Lines, for example... This was a very good article written around the time of the first jury....

    Whateve Happened to Jugula

    Mark Ellen is such an ‘80s douche in this....what’s missing from this clip is the portion of studio interview with Depeche Mode in which they call JP and RH “old stoned hippies,” which is ironic considering one of their members had a significant heroin problem and they were notorious partyers.... Didnt Ellen write about this interview in his book? Wasn’t there supposedly a clip from the interview where JP went tumbling backwards off the rock and RH cracked up?

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    You're both right....the first argument would be that Spirit’s combination of chords, arpeggios, notes played are not sufficiently original to warrant copyright protection, and/or that STH didn’t copy it....STH doesn’t have to copy the entire Spirit riff, arpeggios, melody etc, just whatever combination of notes was deemed sufficiently original and creative by Spirit (if any) to warrant protection....it may be only a portion of the descending chords but it does have to copy exactly what was “original” in Spirit’s piece.... and secondly, if it does copy what was “original,”is that accidental etc or because they borrowed from Spirit....
  14. Saw Plant in Santa Fe last night....voice was in fine form....also in fine form were his comedic one-liners...some political commentary too....and something about no one over 30 should be playing rock music

    The Ocean

    I’ve tried to find good live performances elsewhere too, but really, the best is TSTS...hands down...that guitar tone is not as good in any other performance imo
  16. I couldn’t find the t-shirts, or anything LZ, on the Le Bon Marché website. I went on the MadeWorn website and he had nothing from LZ listed, but be advised....he sells his own crafted “rock group” t-shirts and they run about $175 each...

    Cool dissection of isolated tracks...hope it stays up

    Jimmy's mystery necklace

    Lol...I take equal offense to that term too, assuming you meant “hetero,” as there is no such thing as either of them....might as well just call him a unicorn...

    Jimmy's mystery necklace

    No, former Yardbirds manager Napier-Bell, himself gay, was quoted in the new Page biography as calling JP “partially gay.” I took offense to that term....
  20. Yeah, except it’s not the same as AXS Rock Legends....VH1 basically just had a script of facts/history read by Tyler that was punctuated by clips of the band and prior interviews cobbled together, all of which we’ve all seen before....what I like about the Rock Legends is that they have people—musicians, critics, producers etc—commenting on the group just for the show, and what happened during their run, and putting it in a broader context. It just scratches the surface because it’s only 30 minutes long, but an hour or 1 1/2 hour Rock Legends on LZ would be brilliant. Come on AXS! We know the boys will never do a documentary like this but they should....

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Lmao....I wondered who that colorful guy with the goat trailing behind him was in those riot photos from 1969....
  22. I wish AXS would do either a “Rock Legends” show on LZ or “Classic Albums” segment on one of their albums....I keep hoping to see it, but I guess they need the cooperation of the boys...I have no idea why they wouldn’t do something like this....

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Lol, Good catch...I forgot about goat sacrifice in voodoo and that there’s a large Haitian population in NYC...I always think about someone dancing around and biting a chicken’s head off when I think about voodoo...
