    Yeah, much like reality went, Robert was in and out of wanting to be in Zeppelin after 77. I think that would’ve been the case had they taken a lengthy hiatus after 80/81.  He would’ve come back into the fold after a few years for a reunion or to make more music, then drifted back out and so forth.  IMO. 

    Yeah I see that as a likely scenario. Had they given Robert the proper time to readjust, I'm sure he would've came back in full force.

  2. I'm honestly a bit unsure as to how the band would've went on. A lot of people say that heroin would've gotten to Jimmy, but do we really know how much Bonz's death effected his drub habits? Just curious. I think if neither of them died then a hiatus of some sort certainly would have ensued eventually. They must've known that they were simply too amazing to part ways permanently, but a slow down of some sort needed to happen.

    Trampled Underfoot- Good kick off and verses. Jones gets some funky riffs in. Solo- a good array of aggressive notes without going off the rails. 4:30-4:55 is excellent. A little sloppy after 5:30 but he builds it back up nicely. The wah licks toward the end are experimental and expressive. Not perfect, but once again a solid version of the song with tremendous energy. Unless future nitpicks prove otherwise, I think it's clear that this song was their baby for 1980. "A"

    I would definitely agree with this. From what I've heard of '80, Trampled is by far the most exciting thing they do that year.

    ..this documentary is being done as a bit of an advertisement to get people ready for a new live album? We've speculated that the next one might possibly be from 1969, and this would fit the mold. 

    That sounds great, it really does. But knowing Jimmy... it's just better to not get our hopes up.

    This will just be a remaster of stuff we’ve all seen and heard a thousand times before, plus Jimmy’s sanitized version of their history—don’t get too excited folks.

    I don't know... I don't think Jimmy would bother doing this if he didn't have anything new to offer. Especially since they've actually been involved in the process, I don't think he would let it be something we didn't like or get something new out of. Why else would they participate in it? Of course, you could be right, but it's foolish to judge it before we really have any information on it. 


    On a side note, everyone seems to be calling this something related to "Jimmy's cleaned up history," but this only goes up to '70. What does he really have whats worth hiding from back then? It must be something pretty top secret if there is one, because I can't think of anything very secretive or scandalous from their early days (Except maybe the mudshark incident, but what do we need to hear about that?).

    More from Iceland I hope! That B&W 16MM film footage is killer quality. More please.....

    What about home movies? Seems like they all were carrying Super 8MM cameras while in Japan. 

    Too bad the film won't cover their time in Japan. Sounds like we get to learn a little about the boys before the Zep days until 1970. I would kill for any more live footage we've yet to see.

    Dream on man. Page has stated on many, many occasions that there is nothing else to see. If there was he would have included it on the DVD. Though having said that, the only significant footage may well be Bath 1970 or the rumoured footage from Central Park in 1969

    Knowing Page, I'm not gonna take his word as truth. I love and respect the guy but he clearly has given us false information in the past... Or at least his stories are very inconsistent. That could be his memory, or him feeding the fire of the "mystery" surrounding the band. I get that he loves hyping all that up but damn just give us the facts already.

    I am a massive Nina Simone fan, same with Aretha and Maria Callas however all three were serious assholes who treated those around them like the shittiest hired hobo's. Brought new meaning to the word Diva.

    Yeah. In a way, their attitudes were very influential, but definitely not in a good way.

  8. While I don't hate him, Macca is a total self-absorbed asshole. Roger Daltrey did some stuff that would've bothered me if I knew him back in the day. Although his hey-day was more '70s, Roger Waters is a man from the era that I've grown to have a strong distaste for. Jeff Beck is also an egomaniac. As are Mick and Keef, although I still love 'em. Jim Morrison was not at all a good person. Iggy's also done his fair share of terrible shit. Nina Simone was known for doing terrible stuff in fits of blind rage. I guess this is a list more of people I don't think highly of as human beings.

    Bonham and Grant almost murdering a man?

    Does this have anything to do with that thing with Grant's son and the security at some '77 show? Or is this entirely different? I've never heard that they "almost murdered" somebody.

  10. The age old question.


    Led Zeppelin - Choosing between Dazed and Confused and How Many More Times is getting too difficult.

    Led Zeppelin II - Another extremely tough choice, but I'll go with Bring It On Home.

    Led Zeppelin III - That's the Way

    Led Zeppelin IV - Going to California

    Houses of the Holy - Over the Hills and Far Away

    Physical Graffiti - In My Time of Dying, but tomorrow it could be any of the other 3 epics.

    Presence - Achilles Last Stand 

    In Through the Out Door -  I'm Gonna Crawl
