  1. Great. Zeppelin as a parody of themselves...Plant would go nuts and criticize Page, Jones, and Bonham. Finding a singer to sing Zep tunes and new material is fine. Jack Russell would, undoubtely, love to emulate Plant, (He usually does during live shows) but I think Jimmy and John Paul would soil there legacy by touring with Russell, this also would open them to unecessary criticism...especially from the fans and Plant himself.
  2. Was cranking on some "Worse than Detroit" today...After that I cranked out some "One More Cup of Coffee" the Dylan song from Dreamland.
  3. I've always loved Robert. His body language with the Zep questions exposes his uncomfortable feeling with Zep as always. Robert doesn't want to be part of the 'Geezer touring circuit' ALA The Stones. Reading between the lines I sense he doesn't want to be remembered as 'The voice of Led Zep' He wants to be remembered for someone who took music too a different 'station' at each stop to use an analogy. Allison is his "flavor of the day" He will follow through with this project with her as he should, but in the end will do one last round with Zep before stepping away for good...I believe he was b
  4. Heartbreaker for me too. WLL just doesn't do it for me. Great song. But in NYC metro-area it's been overplayed forever! Heartbreaker's solo and riff is/are/were just incredible.
  5. Today, I cranked out Far Post...I bought that movie CD (Don't even remember the movie name LOL!)--I don't believe I ever saw it, just because it was on there. Excellent piano on it. Anyone know who played piano on it?
  6. In my opinion one of his very best...Slow Dancer- I've also been cranking Sixes and Sevens today while cleaning up!
  7. Thanks for the clip. I will be 41 in June and never had the pleasure of seeing the "Mighty Zep" in their heyday (so sad) My older brother had promised to get tix and take me to a show in '80--we all know how that turned out. I had the distinct pleasure of my first concert being a front row show. I worked at an amusement park in Jersey and my boss was a huge Zep fan who got tix for Robert Plant for us front row MSG- I had seat A-14. At that time he got it through a ticket "service" and we paid $125 in '83! I'd have to dig for the stub to confirm the exact date. You can never top the feeling of
  8. Memory song is about Page. He 's screaming Jimmy at the end. I also read something about that previously a long time ago...
  9. Who wouldn't want new material as Led Zeppelin? Do you think if they thought it wasn't up to their personal standards they would release it? Something forced and contrived. These guys wouldn't do that. Some people in this thread opinionate that it's "Like cheating on Bonzo" or that it would be a cash grab like the Stones -"Please don't call it Led Zeppelin" That's insane. If these gents wanted a cash grab they could've done it with incessant touring years ago. The three surviving members of The Greatest Rock Band on earth may do an album of new material nearly 30 years after their last with t
  10. I think the lack of news regarding the whole situation bodes well. Plant has said repeatedly No. But I get the sense he was blown away by the adulation and even more blown away by how the O2 went. I believe that he wants the hysteria to die down and get a hold of himself emotionally. This whole thing seems to have been very emotional for all these guys. The RS interview indicates that he was really into it-More than he believed possible. He seems real proud of the Krauss stuff-as well he should be-it's good stuff. As for Page-Jimmy is and always will be focused on Led Zeppelin. And why not?
  11. After seeing the setlist and the various UTUBE vids my top 5 would be obscure. For Your Life was the definite "treat of the night" but 5 I would like would be... 1. Tea For One-That beggining riff is great-What a bluesy crawler with exceptional Page leads. 2. Carouselambra-It would be a showoff piece for Jonesy and Plant. 3. In The Light- Exudes raw bluesy power and majesty. 4. Hots on for Nowhere-Saw Pagey do this with the Crowes-It was incredible! 5. The Rover- What a riff..."and the flag we're flyin'-is the new flag on the land!"
  12. But Monsters and Critics is reporting this-Hope it's true! Link: http://people.monstersandcritics.com/news/...cle_1382356.php
