  1. I remember getting Presence on Halloween weekend, probably like 1988. It was one of my last purchased Zep albums to complete my collection. When I heard Tea For One, I was blown away by Robert’s emotions. The whole atmosphere was melancholy perfection.
  2. True. Back in the day, Grant would’ve been on this though
  3. Just wondering, has anyone else noticed ads on Facebook selling unlicensed Zeppelin T-shirts? I’ve seen one where Robert was photoshopped in one with the lyrics to Thank You on it. Today I seen an ad that features all of Robert’s solo album covers on them. Wondering if Robert’s management is aware of this, or how to let them know
  4. Well, the whole beginning of Jimmy teaming up with Robert was when Robert was asked to do Unplugged, and Robert asked Jimmy to join him for it. So really it was Jimmy joining Robert’s camp. I do find it peculiar that with Jonesy’s taste in folky mandolin music that Robert has never collaborated with him. For me, I’d really enjoy it. I doubt we see any of the guys ever recording together again
  5. What I'm curious about is while this took place, did it drive a wedge that caused the Page/Plant era come to an end.
  6. Interesting article from manager Bill Cubishley. Sorry if previously posted. https://www.musicbusinessworldwide.com/bill-curbishley-the-who-lot-artists-old-days-bullied-hate-bullies/
  7. Would Robert ever consider a tour that featured exclusively on his first five solo albums? I'm probably crazy, but I'd love to see him do this, without any Zeppelin re-works in his set. I know he's not one to do something that's not moving forward, but he has some great songs that really came to life live that seem like a lifetime ago. Hearing something like Pink and Black live, was a real treat the first time I saw him live. Anyone else into that kinda thing?
  8. So did Jimmy find his angel with a broken wing?
  9. I think Jimmy's activity post Zep activity(lack of) was just as big of factor as Robert being reluctant. I might not always like Roberts solo adventures (Nashville), but I will forever respect him for his work, and honoring Bonzo by moving forward, not treading water
  10. The guitarist from Soundgarden doesn't like Jimmy. I remember him being asked about if Jimmy influenced him and he wasn't too kind. Any way, here's Chris doing Thank You on his solo tour
  11. This whole drama reminds me of 92-93 Page & Plant media jabs. Like others, I've accepted that there will never be any tour, or even music. This latest crap is leaving a grumpy old men media shark fest that I hate to see come of my favorite band. The only good is that maybe Jimmy will get a little motivation from Robert's comments. Time to move on James. A few steps since 1980, but let it rip. Bobby went Nashville, and so did my admiration for him. Thank you John Paul for doing your talking on stage
  12. Is that Pamela "I'm with the band" chewing on the snake?
  13. Seen them a few times in high school, during thier peak. I found Dread Zeppelin a better act to be honest. And after the Station Fire, I think they came off as very distasteful. I flip the channel every time they come on
  14. I found it exciting when it was released. David was always more of a metal guy, where Plant was more worldly. Other than a blonde dye and perm, not really the same approach. I guess Dave did steal the car in the video idea from Burning Down One Side too.....Whisper A Prayer For The Driving
  15. Great comments on here! If I'm not mistaken, wasn't the Dixon lawsuit around the time the box set was released? To me, it's timing. As a guitarist myself, I find it not close mechanically. I wore my '77 tour shirt to work today. It's funny how kids(I'm 42) today believe anything news and media put out. I got the lawsuit and how every song was ripped off. I stopped listening to Stern after his attack on Zep. Sure, Robert nic'd some lyrics. But the output from the band was beyond lifting songs. I think one thing that turns Plant off, is things like this. I will just laugh at the haters. Look at what mainstream pop/rock is today, and these people are critiquing music from the golden age. They can stick to selfies and American Idol-The Voice rubbish.....
  16. I'm happy for Jimmy. He has done some great work on this project, and I hope his disire to play returns.
  17. Steve, I got to meet Michael and Charlie at the Hard Rock. I wish I had taken my camera along. That was a great weekend. I've always wondered if anyone had booted around the idea to have many bands throughout the day performing. Besides Zep material, maybe do influences, and solo stuff. Kinda like Abbey Road On The River in Louisvlle Ky. So many various styles would make it interesting. I'm not big on people dressing the part, or trying to do Plantations as some tribute bands do.
  18. I enjoyed seeing Jason's show last summer, and I think he's doing it right by not just working as a tribute band, but doing other projects. I hope Jimmy taps into Jason if he ever makes new music. Jason's come along way since the outrider project.
  19. Johnny Carson's banter with guest was second to none. When Letterman followed him on NBC, he always had great musical guest I liked as a kid.
  20. Anyone else like Robert's cover of the Arthur Alexander song? http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dF9NNGOmGNY
  21. I remember this story being brought up after some nut with a knife wanted to get Jimmy at a Page/Plant show. I believe it was in Detroit.
  22. I thought his role was done at great respect. Saw four dates on that tour, and never felt like he was the Jimmy safety net. That being said, I preferred the '98 tour. But both tours had such different textures. Porl played some nice banjo too. And didn't he play on Dreamland as well?
