  1. Good god, I fear what might be analyzed in a stack of photos of any of us. Photos catch a moment in time, and often times it is a fake moment. Think of the "say cheese" smile, and how fake that actually is. When we compare smiling photos with non-smiling photos, does it mean we are unhappy in the non-smiling photos? Or that we were just lying in the smiling ones. Moments... we have so few that are truly exceptional, and often they are not captured honestly in photos. Live them, remember them, and make more moments, for too soon, there will be no more.
  2. I just heard that interview with Robert commenting on the singer. I'm not sure, but it sounds more like a sarcastic dig than real praise. Here, starting at around 2:50, GVF is brought up: "he's pretty good. There's a job for him somewhere" and then he comments about Zepparella and "what a front man... woman". This sounds very much in line with typical Plant humor, like "the best percussionist Led Zeppelin has ever had, John Bonham - Moby Dick!" Robert had many similar comments about Zep clones in the 80's. I remember him 'helping' Jason's first band which was a clone b
  3. Magic comes from all sources and the very specific alchemy of the chemistry of a band. Let us remember that even if Jason joined for an imaginary misnamed 'reunion', it cannot ever be the same.

And if prior members of Zep cannot be the 'next zeppelin', how can anyone even hint that some new group can. Look for what moves you now, not what reminds you of the past. Rival Sons moves me now, not because of some similar zep-sound, but because of the full class
  4. I think this is the one thing that comparisons miss.... Zep was not 'one' thing, much like the Beatles weren't just "HELP!" or "Rubber Soul" or "Abbey Road". All the 'clone' bands seem to focus on the singing, yet screaming versus wailing, yelling versus howling. Then add in some heavy drums, and maybe a light sprinkling of imitation Middle Eastern flavor. But they mostly come off as imitations. Like they use Zep as their main influence. I'm listening to Greta Van Fleet right now, and all I hear, halfway through an October 2017 show is the sound of Clone. It's my first listen to a f
