  1. I will wait for an official recording. Sorry Bootlegs just don’t capture Led Zeppelin live.
  2. I often wondered what Zeppelin fans thought back in 1975-to Present what they thought of the change in Robert plants vocals? I do recall reading that Zeppelin toured before the physical graffiti album so I am pretty sure fans notice in concert that Plant lost range but what about those that 1. Didn’t see Zeppelins 75 tour but bought the album the same year. 2. Those that didn’t know the history of Zeppelin but discovered a change on the PG album? For me I found it kinda odd that physical graffiti had recordings that sounded different compared to other songs on the Album. Houses of The Holy song is one example, or down by the sea side is another.
  3. I think John Bonham would’ve been the one to demand a break from the long tours, and being a way from his growing family. Robert was all in as long as John was there, yeah he did say that by 77’ tour they were grinding through the shows but the huge audience going berserk would motivate anyone to continue even if they weren’t in best form in all their shows.( I think a bad Zeppelin show would still be better than a good show from anyone else. ) I guess Robert and John Bonham would have made it clear that Zeppelin was going to stay closer to home, shorter tours, longer breaks, then call it a day by 1995.
  4. Just curious if any members in this form plays Zeppelin music in a band or their personal studio aka garage band. Has anyone ever tried to play the 10 ribs & all carrot....pod pod pod ? That is a amazing tune.
  5. Lame another cash grab by someone who is just making $$ off Zeppelin.
  6. That would be the first time Immigrant song was played!
  7. Unseen footage videos to go with the music? Hell yeah!
  8. Saw the band and it was terrible. Couldn’t handle the rendition of Zeppelin music. His new music is great and atmospheric, great vibe, until he sings country Zepp.
  9. Excuse me? Sorry buddy was born when Zeppelin four came out. It’s ok if you get turned on by off stage bull shit, but to criticize another because “they weren’t there” is pompous crap. Don’t care what Zeppelin did off stage because a lot of it was fake, Zeppelin music is definitely not fake but my point is the gluttonous life on 5he road for Zeppelin almost overshadowed the music. I’ve met hundreds of people who saw Zeppelin in Seattle and all of them said 77’ was terrible and a fucking joke compared to their previous tour in 75’ at the Seattle Center. Steve Slaton a popular Radio DJ told me once at a music convention that he met Zeppelin at the airport and Jimmy was wasted and had to be carried off the plane. This type of life style is Romantic to you SteveAJones? My opinion on Zeppelin is one of a music fan not a ass kisser who thinks the band could do know wrong. Yeah a 30 year old rock star dating a 16 year old girl is gross by any means.
  10. When it comes down to it. Who cares because that song is terrible and should never been written or placed on an album. Yeah it’s just my opinion but I’m pretty sure 1000s of other people would agree that song is cheese to the max. In through the out door has some serious issues as a record in whole but there is some stellar songs on their : in the evening, All my love, I’m gunna crawl, southbound... & the epic. Hot dog is a filler song and fool in the rain is a joke, yeah I know Bonzo drumming on fool.... is technically hard to do but still a cheesy tune. Another thing about this offstage stuff that surrounded Zeppelin is boring and really not worth the trouble reading about because half of it is over exaggerated. Jimmy page romance with a 16 year old girl is disgusting and arrogant, he would be called a pervert in today’s world, but since he is a guitar God it is something we look past wearily but we do. Same thing about John Bonham and his abusive behavior when drunk, stories of hitting female reporters, attacking a life reporter, drinking so much he would become distraught. This effect was apparent in his looks, remember Bonham was only 32 or when he died, he looked like he was 52 fat bloated and definitely not the best drummer that gave us classics like ALS, When the Levee breaks and many others. The captain of the Zeppelin ship was also lost in the land of gluttony and the fire was growing dim. Then it was over.
  11. Listen to that song “fire” glad it was left off. Sounds way to much like Yes. zeppelin new way better than us what they wanted to release. Some asshole breaks into Jimmy Pages house steals a bunch of tapes and we will never have a chance of Jimmy remastering these taps for official release. What would have been cool is to hear how they were working on Their 1980 set list for America. Some promising stuff their.
  12. When this incident happened it was the beginning of the end for Led Zeppelin. Many reasons. By this time there was many reasons to not like Zeppelin, the terrible shows, the stupid drugs and Jimmy Page more worried about his fix then playing some killer shows. The overwhelmingly long and boring solos that are so dated it became cliché. John Paul Jones has said many times during that tour he wouldn’t even be in the same Hotel with the rest of the band and road crew. Richard Cole was a complete coke head at this time and the whole vibe was just a big downer. The creativity musically was missing or finished, they just didn’t want to admit it, Led Zeppelin was destroying itself. Then tragedy hits Robert Plant and his personal life was now shaken to it’s core. Two years later they attempted a major concert and it was panned for sounding dated. I as a fan look past the offstage crap because it means nothing. Though it is my right as a fan to point out how drugs and some may say an arrogant attitude ruined the 77’ tour. Light effects and lasers can’t hide missed notes and sloppy playing.
  13. I am listening to Zeppelin Kashmir 77’ Cleveland otherwise known as the Destroyer show. That has to be one of the best versions of Kashmir live for the 77’ tour without any flubs. Great performance from all the members, Robert always sang Kashmir his best on that particular song.
  14. Funny you mention that part of WLL ( I heard ...) when I first heard it I thought it was kinda cool like some personal story of Roberts parents having worried about his career ambitions. As I grew older and bought HTWWW I thought “wow Zeppelin never really changed it from their previous tour?” Because Zeppelin during their 71, 70 tours WLL always played melodies from other bands like Buffalo Springfield, Other 60s bands I cannot recall, of course the African American deep Mississippi blues melodies no body did it better then Zeppelin. Jimmy Page shines the brightest when jamming those old blues tunes, Bonzo Jones combo keeping the rhythm was unstoppable. That’s why the WLL and Black dog on TSRTS are 1 of the best. Blueberry Hill version of WLL is amazing as is the Version of Communication breakdown Melody. I personally think 1971 is Zeppelin at it’s best and rawest.
