  1. I searched the forums but it kept coming up error, so I'll post it any way. I just pulled a 08 Caddy CST in at work to tint the windows on it ( to make a long story longer ) and it had factory XM radio in it. I was scrolling thru the stations and hit a channel that plays nothing but Zep . Unbelievable. Suffice to say the sound system was awesome. I heard 'Nobodys fault', 'TSRTS', and 'Achilles Last Stand'. It was like hearing them for the first time. Sad to say at the height of my Zepdom C.D.s were not around so my library consisted of albums, and at the time I had a kick ass system. I'm sure this will cause a debate, but notning compares to CD. After 16 years of marriage and two sons Zep sorta took a back seat. But I was and will always be a hardcore fan. So I hear these songs, crank it up, and remembered all over again why. Its been awhile since I just sat back and really listened to the music. I did not want to get out of the car . I never thought that "Physical Graffitti" was one of Zep best (too long of songs, run-on leads) (just my opinion) (uh-oh another debate?) but when I heard 'Achilles Last Stand' it took me back to 7th grade, it was like I was transported back to my buddies bedroom listening to the album for the first time. So if you don't know about XM Zeppelin station (59), there it is. And in the process I found a long lost friend!
  2. (quote from kozak) the band tries to cover it as precise as possible and the vocalist has zero for a range, so it sounds ok musicaly I tend to agree.
  3. I just listened to Godsmacks 'Good Times Bad Times'. Not very up on the group, but I thought that was a damn good rendition.
  4. I seen Heart live at Gusman Philharmonic Symphony Hall in Miami about 1980 and for theire final encore they did Rock 'N Roll. They absolutley kicked ass.
  5. UFO? Micheal Schenker UFO? Led Zeppelin of Germany? Man your showing your age. They kicked ass, huh? I read somewhere they just came out with a new album (C.D.). Does'nt he have a brother who plays guitar too? Can you name all the groups he's been in? Montrose? Scorpions? Any more?
  6. In the song 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You', after the second time Plant sings "I've got to ramble" you can hear someone (Plant?) in the background say something. Any one have any idea who and what they are saying.......or am I losing my mind?

    Top Five?

    I don't know if this has been done yet, but, what are your top five favorite Zep songs. Mine are (in no paticular order) Since I've Been Loving You Tangerine Rain Song Out On The Tiles Nobody's Fault
  8. The Rain Song, a beautiful, classical opus.
  9. Lemon Song by far! Zep was not only a kick ass rock n roll band they were also an exceptional blues band (which everyone knows rock derived from) Lemon Song is just one fine example of this. Just listen to SIBLY for further proof.
  10. From TYG Did you ever need somebody and really need 'em bad, did you ever really want somebody, the best stuff you ever had. Did you ever remember me baby, did it feel so good, 'cause it was just the first time, and you knew you would. From Tangerine Iwas her love, She was my queen, and now a thousand years between. Also from Tangerine And I do. After Plant sings "And I do" Pages solo comes in and it is so hauntingly chilling, I get goose bumps even when I hear it in my mind.
  11. I thought for the longest time that the line in 'Going to California' was " I think I might be extinctive ". I don't even think thats a word. The line is "I think I might be sinking." any one got any more.
  12. YEA, I was there. I remember getting our tickets at the Orange Bowl in Miami. There was a few small skirmishes there. I also remember the whole town of Tampa was full of stoner hippy Zep heads, it was fucking great. They played like 2 1/2 songs and it started pouring down rain. They announced to hold on to your ticket stubs that they would play the next night; but it was like the tickets dissolved when they got wet. There were some pissed off fans. I wouldn't call it a riot, but there was definitely a melee. The day after, in all the local papers (Tampa Tribune, Miami Herald) there was a full page ad on page A-2 from the band apologizing and telling how to get a refund (My stub made it and I kept it.) Superimposed as big as the page was the Swan Song label. I also save that paper for years but finally lost it in all the moves. I would love any info on how to get that memorabilia. That was the only time I ever seen Zep, it sucked they only got off 2-3 songs but at least I got to hear and see that much.
