    Hot pics of Jimmy

    I was actually thinking about this last night, how amazing it is that Jimmy creates such a frenzy amongst women/girls. Am I the only one that thinks that this seems to be a unique phenomenon? I mean I don't know, I'm not familiar with the fan-girls of other rock bands. I was very bad when I was 14/15/16 but I think I've become more rational, and have a boyfriend, yet I still can't totally escape the Pagette-ness.
  3. I know the band doesn't 'owe' us a reunion tour or anything but at leeeassst put out the DVD. Please.
  4. Why not enjoy both! I have a stereo and an iPod, I don't think getting an iPod means you have to give up your home stereo. Exactly! That's why iPods are so great. And the fact that when you put it on shuffle you can get so many different styles of music one song right after the other.
  5. Sunburst Les Paul. My favourite sound and it looks great. Every time I see one I automatically think of Jimmy!
  6. Great pictures but I'm not sure I dig the leather pants!
  7. I wish she would play non-slide more often! She's quite a good acoustic fingerpicking player. But this is the only time I've heard her play that way: Love Me Like A Man, 1995: This is also one of my favourites of hers: I'm in the Mood, with John Lee Hooker http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rinCSb7_frQ&feature=fvw Her slide solo on the studio version of that is one of my favourite guitar solos ever. I also love her early stuff. Too bad its not that well know. I have the compilation "The Bonnie Raitt Collection" I think its called, with the best of her early works... its great!
  8. I know! I would love to see him in concert again. It was one of, if not the, best show I've been to. He's just so amazing.
  9. Is he really 67 now?! Wow, I swear it was only like last year that he turned 64, and that was a big deal because of the song. Come to think of it, that's the year that he did the North American (or world?) tour that I saw him on. So yeah I guess it was a few years ago now...... where does the time go!
  10. The word "better" makes no sense when comparing bands like Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. As has been pretty much already said in this thread, the two bands were of different eras and had to work within that frame, thus they cannot be compared. I don't think saying that Led Zep is better than The Beatles because The Beatles were a typical 'boy band' with 3 minute songs and screaming girls and such is fair. That is the frame the Beatles had to work with in that time. They then broke that mold a few years later. Led Zeppelin also broke the mold in the '70's, but in a different context. I love the Beatles dearly. I love Led Zeppelin dearly. Led Zep may always be my favourite, for sentimental reasons, but that has nothing to do with one being 'better' than the other.
  11. Its the only one I know too, but I love it!
  12. Oh oops, I thought they hadn't and I looked through the thread to even make sure I was right, lol. My deepest apologies to everyone.
  13. I love Bonnie Raitt. One of my favourite voices ever! Surprised no one has mentioned her in this thread yet. Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, Susan Tedeschi, Etta James, Aretha, Lauryn Hill, some more favourites.
  14. Actually?? Don't forget the Stock Exchange. :rolleyes:
  15. I think the point is that why is someone like Taylor Swift considered 'country' and, say, Sheryl Crow isn't? There really is little difference, not enough to make them two different genres. Its just marketing. And this is the formula from what I gather from listening to commercial country radio- apparently if you just add one steel guitar track to any pop song it becomes country. edit: Oh and if you are wearing cowboy boots and hat in your video then you are country too.
  16. In my opinion she's just average, I don't see what all the fuss is about her. I mean, if I saw her in a high school talent show I would think "Yeah, she's pretty good", but not be mind-blown in any way.
  17. How pathetic is this, really. :rolleyes:
  18. Ugghh. What a sad, sad person he is.
  19. I don't think there's anything wrong with expressing disappointment. Like I posted before, I'm 19 and have never seen Jimmy let alone even be alive to witness him release new material. So obviously I don't like that. Its kind of maddening to be in love with this musician and never getting the chance to see them live/buy their new album. Is there anything wrong with me thinking that? How can I not think that? But its not like I'm writing mad fan mail to Jimmy saying "You selfish prick! Put out a damn album! You owe me it! Grrr!" Me being so young is just my unfortunate situation, I don't think its Jimmys 'fault' or blame him or something... OBVIOUSLY Jimmy, and Robert, and every other person on the fucking planet, and I thought this was a given, can do whatever the hell they please, no one in this thread is saying otherwise (in the Robert bashing/reunion threads, however... ) "Jimmy barbs"- yeah right! In my opinion, Jimmy has the right to do anything he wants (ummm he's a human), and I respect his 'reasons', if there are any, for not playing, or whatever's 'going on'. If its a motivational problem, then I 1000000% get it. I mean, I'm a guitar player and I'm going through the exact same thing right now. People need to chill out. Hey, believe it or not, there are more important issues to agonize over than the life of a '70s rock guitar player.
