  1. Contact God! No offense, wish all best to your son!
  2. A great band from the eighties from Slovenia called Shank rock, I absolutely love this ballad, one of my favourite songs ever, soooo beautiful:
  3. This was discussed a lot already on the forum and I think they should have taken a break in October 1972 already and then make each tour short enough and each break long enough for Roberts voice to stay intact. I think the problem was that those were the early pioneer days of big rock and roll bands and the management wasn't that complex and developed and also you must know that the decisions about music were left to the band and how the band sounds, including Robert's voice was therefore perhaps not the decision of the management. Now why Robert alone didn't take a break and shortened the tours for medical and musical reasons we will never know. Partly it's probably just the excess and the ego and to keep the show going, partly he was maybe actually unaware of how permanent the problem will be and partly somebody once mentioned his middle class mentality about it, which is to keep going while it lasts.
  4. Well to be honest, so am I! Especially if it's studio footage, but live performaces were ofcourse so varied and visually spectacular I would certainly like to see more of that too in pro quality, I just think there just isn't much available and I don't think they will use low quality footage for a top documentary like this. Still they might surprise us with a few good clips, perhaps studio clips and photos, some of it from pre Zep era. I just honestly don't think that if anything would be left, that it wouldn't be released already considering how high regarded the band is now and I think the problem is that in the 70's bands didn't record them that much or atleast not Led Zeppelin, it came along latter in the 80's and 90's. I think the O2 is very important in terms of having a really good show recorded in a good way although the editing is weird, constant shifting of cameras. Maybe we will get more of that, doesn't exactly fit the 68-70 era though.
  5. I think it will be quite a detailed documentary about their maturation as musicians, about their musical influences and about the first two albums. No unseen old footage or stories about excess are nedeed in such a musical documentary, so being about all the albums would be good though.
  6. Great news, but I really don't understand why some of you are so interested in seeing unreleased clips, that's not really a point of a musical documentary, it's about bringing new insights into the music and musicians that created it. We have seen pretty much all the footage and most importantly heard all the bootlegs, so I would much preffer them talking about their musical heroes and how they got together and about the first two albums(even of I would like to hear them talk about all of them like in the MTV Rockumentary but more in detail). I still wouldn't mind some new footage from the studio sessions but even that is not as interesting as actually hearing them talk interesting things. But some poeple here starting to fantasize about more material being in the can, I think that is a bit silly.
  7. Thanks! I thought you live in America! It's 8.4. in Slovenia, let's just trow the dates around and celebrate 40 years of first Knebworth today! Quite a good way to forget about all sorts of pain and noises or whatever!
  8. This is my song You gave me your hand, which is one of the songs from my album, which I already posted on the forum, but this one is actually done with a producer, so it doesn't have the weird and rather chaotic arrangement I made before and I think the vocals are also my best ever. I'll be happy if you listen and comment. Arguments and insults are not part of this topic of course. Enjoy the music!
  9. 1970. I think Robert's voice sounded the best that year, just better and not as extreme as 1971 and they started to experiment more which is basicaly the start of all their album experimentation and their shows got expanded and more varied and experimental too and they got their first own sound system which is important. And ofcourse Led Zeppelin III is from that year, which is my favourite album.
  10. You certainly do that just by listening to existing music in detail and aplying that, but you have to bring new things into music in all sorts of ways.
  11. Plant said exactly that in 1990 MTV rockumentary about Led Zeppelin III. He said people commented 'why kill a perfectly good career' and he said 'you make moves, musical twists and turns, to satisfy yourself, that's what has to come first'. So I guess it's both telling the listener what to listen to and satisfying yourself, while thinking enough what the listener wants too.
  12. Both posts are great, thanks. The first one is really well written, poetic essay and well the second one, yeah, I'm still waiting for an epic movie with a car driving down the desert with Kashmir in it or maybe Moses spreading the sea!
  13. Yeah he truly got it down to every move, not to mention tour! But with such an original guitarists and author as Page is sure there are going to be naysayers, even when someone is that good, plus I'm quite sure he can't be that good if he isn't sober and clean hehe, while Page still could be
  14. The topic really wasn't meant to change anything, it's all been told and retold and discovered already and Zeppelin are a heck of an original band! Not much to add after Led Zeppelin II at all, but it's similar with Roberta Flack and song Gone away compared to main riff of The Rain song: sounds similar right in the intro but totally different note combination and also an additional note. You can check that very quickly on a keyboard. And in Vertigo you have a descending and also A BIT of an ascending melody, but only the descending one is quite similar with additional notes, and they you got several more riffs in Kashmir, the main one, the one over it, the one after the main theme, the symphonic part and the final riff, plus the lyrics and vocal melody. What an epic! Nothing mayor to report here, only that Bernard Hermann died in 1975, probably of pride and delight when he heard Kashmir and that little bit of it too huh heh!
