  1. I have to ask, just when did they play Bouree by J.S. Bach? I love the Jethro Dull version, but I can only imagine how it might have been done by the mighty Zeppelin.
  2. Just because the Stones are out there doing covers of their latter day selves and big league-ing events like the concert for Sandy Relief doesn't mean Zeppelin needs to follow suit. I used to be totally destroyed that my favorite band (and coincidentally, the greatest band of all time) didn't reform for a tour that those of us who were too young to witness them prior to Bonzo's passing missed. But, not anymore. Don't villify Robert. He is right, even if Jimmy was so slow to recognize it. The 2007 02 show might just go down in history (and I know "history" might just be the worst t
  3. I love Aerosmith's cut of this song, and I think I heard the Yardbirds' version on a casette I bought in a retail store 25 years ago or something... one of the greatest hard rock songs of all time. I know Zeppelin would have absolutely KILLED it. If Robert, Jimmy, JPJ and Jason Bonham walked into a studio today and cut a version of this tomorrow, I am absolutely certain it would go platinum in a week and turn a lot of working stiffs into millionaires... warts and all. What a great song!
  4. I saw the movie tonight in Cincinnati, and it was absolutely phenomenal. The whole thing was awesome, but I would have to say the boys were at their absolute best in the series of five or six songs starting with Ramble On through In My Time of Dying. Tears came to my eyes in the middle of that set just seeing how tight they were, and how much fun they were having that night. I got the feeling that any worries they had brought into the gig washed away during that stretch of songs, and they knew they were squarely in the middle of something special and simply went apeshit with the feeling
  5. I was 11 years old. It was a snowy day and I was taking the bus to school, which was notable because I usually skipped school with that much snow on the ground. A kid on the bus told me what had happened. I didn't know Led Zeppelin from Pink Floyd at the time, though I did recognize Stairway and others tunes that were on the radio frequently. So, I don't know why it stuck with me until I became such a full-fledged Zeppelin fan a few years later. It may have had something to do with the number of times the news was repeated throughout the course of that day. I do remember that I couldn
  6. I love the film. I have seen it a hundred times at least. The concert footage is tight. I love seeing Peter Grant in action. Robert's rotten teeth were so English, and when he talked about the "cosmic energy" and went "yeah!!!!.. Bash!" before the band transitioned into "Since I've Been Loving You" I felt I had really been backstage with the guys. Robert's fantasy scenes, especially the parts during the Rain Song, really hit home as far as what it means to have a real here and now for a particular chic. I don't know if it was love, but I am pretty sure it was enough that some fat cast
  7. Second only to Zeppelin would have to be either The Yardbirds or The Firm, wouldn't it?

    GRAMMY Results

    Congratulations to Robert and Allison. I don't care about Grammy's, but they truly deserve the gesture for such a great album.
  9. The idiot singer from the Goo Goo Dolls opened an episode of an old VH1 music show with a celebrity panel by declaring that he hated Robert Plant. And, for some reason, before the show was over he said it again. I can vaguely remember anything about that show aside from that.
  10. Yer most welcome. I am sure there is better quality out there, but man it sounded great coming through those speakers.
  11. I downloaded 2-3 bit torrent versions of the show that I had to trash because I JUST KNEW they didn't capture the sound of the show. They all sounded like garbage, and I knew this was not garbage. Then, I went on youtube, and found this guy's stuff: http://www.youtube.com/user/vegheadnow Ok, so then I plugged my Wireless Transmitter into the headphone jack of my pc and pumped the feed into my surround sound system. I adjusted the volume on my pc to about 55%, and the Youtube volume to about the same. This left enough contrast between Robert, Jimmy, Jason and JPJ to hear eve
  12. I have come to the conlusion, and it was a long and arduous journey over the last year that got me here believe me, that Jeff is right. Let it go. Led Zeppelin remains so pure and pristine, as close to as new as the day it was born as any Rock and Roll band that ever cut a track. The love for this band exceeds all others. When I watched the Beatles doing their Apple Records rooftop gig at the end on Youtube the other night, it struck me how distant every individual was that day and how mechanical the music was. Brilliant, but somehow unsinspired. Watching the Led Zeppelin DVD beats
  13. Knife, meet back. If Jimmy ever was his friend, he should never go ripping on him like that. The contempt in the tone of his comments ruin the credibility of what he is saying. And, who cares if JP enjoys watching soccer, fer chrissakes.
  14. This is great news that most people should feel good about. It never could be Zep without Plant, but it could still be a fantastic new project by some of the greatest musicians on the planet. All the baggage gets left behind, the mystique of the band is left intact and we get new music, and maybe a chance to catch the act when it rolls through town. Short of Robert changing his mind, I think this is the best news possible.
