  1. In the evening stills blows me away every time i listen to it. Everything about it is awesome, the lyrics, vocal handling, drums, guitar everything. I can still remember being blown away the first time that cassette popped in my cheap stereo that christmas. I get that feeling just about every time i hear it... still. I just can't believe anyone is listing You Shook Me.
  2. Hot Dog is number one on the I can't listen to it list. Tied for number 2&3 are Livin' Lovin' Maid and Stairway to Heaven simply because my local radio station has played them out so much I can't bear to listen to them for the zillionth time each, gawd.
  3. And calling it Led Zeppelin? Yeah, no Zep without people named Page, Plant, Jones and Bonham. Different singer and moving on? Hell yes! I'd love to see it!
  4. I tend to agree. While I think CR would be a good fit, I'd like to see someone new (to me at least ha!) and powerful to fill the role. Anyone but David Coverdale!! LOL
  5. You must have seen Sammy when he was sick or his voice worn out. His voice is as good as it was in the Montrose days. I saw him two months ago, and a few times over the past few years since the 2005 VH tour, he's fantastic. That being said, as much as I love Sammy, I would rather not see him in Zeppelin. Sammy is in the studio with Joe Satriani, Michael anthony and Chad Smith. I think Chris Robinson would be a great fit, but he is busy with The Black Crowes tour right now.
  6. I would love to go back and have the same job I had back then, for a short while. I was a cook and I have learned a lot about cooking since then and would love to have the opportunity to cook again and work with the same crew I did back then. We had great times, had a lot of fun and it would be cool to interact and see how they would apply what they have learned over that time to the old job. Would I do that job forever? No. Does anyone really expect Plant, Page, Jones and Bonham to come together and NEVER part again? They would be stupid to. But I think a tour with maybe a couple of songs they never did before as Zeppelin would be pretty damn cool. I dunno if I'd want a new album released under the Zeppelin moniker... but I think that is for the four of them to decide. If they got together and wrote new stuff that they felt was on par with anything they had written in the past, good for them. I'd buy it as I am sure most here would even if they called it "Wet Slop". Hell, they could do what they did on November 8, 1971 when they released their fourth album without a title and without a band name on the label. I'd like to see em do that and let the music stand on it's own. There are my two cents.
  7. Don't know if anyone has said it yet but..... Just A Fool In The Rain?
  8. OK, check THIS out guys. eBay link to buy "The Object" I wouldn't buy it myself at this point in my life, but it is dang cool!
  9. Quite honestly, some of the greatest artist of all time were Bi-Polar. While on the high end of the Bi-Polar swing they write, paint, write music or whatever in great abundance and with great focus. The Bi-polar driven focus often leads to great results. The problem is when they swing the other way the destructive behavior kicks in as they get depressed and moody. When the disease is controlled properly the self destructive side can be stopped and tho the person may not get manic and write or paint as much, they will still be able to do so, perhaps not with as much output. BTW Morrison's "Poetry" is totally over-rated IMO. His voice? It fits his band, but I don't know that he had great range or that he knew how to use his voice as an instrument the way Robert Plant has. JM was a showman and a performance artist of sorts. A great one at that. Robert Plant is an artist and a tremendously talented singer. Listen to The Strange Sensation album, In Through the Out Door and Presence and even Raising Sands and you can see he knows how to use his voice as an instrument. Morrison, while an intruiging persona, could not hold a candle to him vocally.
  10. I always thought that Plants voice sounds a bit worn out on TSRTS, like it needed a rest. Still great, but not Plant's best. He sounds better on HTWWW. I prefer TSRTS over HTWWW tho I think HTWWW is a better snapshot of the mighty Zeppelin in concert. Better vocals and everything. I suppose if I hadn't been listening to TSRTS since I was a teenager, I'd give HTWWW the nod, but I just feel more "at one" with TSRTS. Does that sound odd?
  11. His vocals on Nobody's Fault But Mine during the famous Knebworth show and Train Kept a Rollin from one of the 80' tour (I forget which night) are two of my favorites. I'll never forget when I him at MSG on his first solo tour in 83 or 84... after the show was over and the lights came up, they kept playing a recording of him singing "m-m-m-MY! M-m-MY!" and people stopped leaving, started shouting and going nuts. How many singers can drive a crowd wild doing just that?
  12. I was there for that! It was a pretty big deal casue it was basically his first series of performances since the death of John Bonham. He was the last act the come on before everyone came out on stage. Wood, Wyman and Watts from the stones were there (I was in back of the stage and remember Ron Wood climbing over the barrier holding a bottle of Jack in one hand). Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Kenny Jones who was in the who at the time was there too. Others, so many I can't remember them all. I think most people were there to see Jimmy tho, in my biased opinion. Paul Rodgers was there and sang for Jimmy. Couple of tracks off Death Wish 2 and what was to become a "Firm" song.
  13. I wouldn't count on Stairway either cause the solo by Jimmy wasn't quite right. Although, they could do what other bands like Pink Floyd have done on their "Live" recordings and re-do parts. I'd rather a little touch up than not releasing it myself....
