  1. to be absolutely honest with you folks, I think it is OK to continue as a band without Plant and with ah replacement singer. Bands move along and change, and a change in sound may have some very nice results. They are a different band and very much different people now compared to 30 years ago so let them be.
  2. Just heard Trampled Underfoot. Definitely a whammy pedal.
  3. Unfortunately, your source is The Sun, which is a tabloid magazine known for fabricating stories for entertainment. So it's not true. A few hours ago I read a story like that on a similar website about them confirming that they're touring, and releasing tour dates.
  4. US Charts: Blame it on the Rain, Milli Vanili UK Charts: You Got It (The Right Stuff) - New Kids On The Block SAD.
  5. I'm going to guess they did that becuase of robert's voice. I can't think of another reason why they would do it.
  6. If you guys have some of the clips on your hard drive, you can send them to me and I'll upload them onto my webspace for all to download. It should be a lot more secure and faster than rapidshare or youtube. Send them to timboh56@gmail.com
  7. Yeah, i saw the video. It's a bit short, I think it's good. he makes a few mistakes here and there, there's a lack of the magic he had during the 70s, but he's in his 60s for crying out loud. Great solo still.
  8. I am offended to see you say that. I have every one of their albums. THey mostly specialize in the hard rock arena, and if I were to generalize their music in a few words, I think my statement would be quite accurate. They're not known for being a melodic band, they're known for being a hard rock band. I've played all my love on the keyboard a few times, the other songs are all really good too. If you hear an average listener of music talk about zeppelin, one of the first things he may say about zeppelin is that they are a hard rock band which basically created the bedrock of all heavy metal. With no zeppelin, there would be no metal, but there would still be a lot of pop music around. As far as songs aside from the metal format goes, I don't think zeppelin was much of a huge innovation. Of course all of their non-metal songs are amazing though. So I'm sure that zeppelin has inspired many non-hardrock artists, but if I had to say which arena they mainly innovated and inspired in, it would definitely be in the hard rock genre.
  9. The Beatles are most certainly more influential and 'greater' than Zeppelin, no question. The Beatles was the bedrock of all popular music today- they took experimentation to a unprecedented fearless stage, innovated and practically created the rock and roll sound for the generations to come. Without the beatles, there would be no rock as we know it and we would still be mostly playing boogie woogie with Chuck berry and Elvis. Aside from that, Beatles songs are among the world's most popular, next to the obvious tunes everyone knows by Mozart and Beethoven and bach blah blah. Beatles' melodies are enduring and endless... music is melody. Zeppelin has great jives and head banging material that spawned so much to hard rock. The Beatles are accessible to practicably anyone who wants a good listen, while I can definitely see how Zeppelin can scare away a listener with particularly delicate tastes (like my sister, HATES zeppelin). I'll put it succintly: Led Zeppelin changed hard rock forever. The Beatles changed music forever. Good night everyone
  10. I think he means range as in how much he can play, the variety of stuff he can play.
  11. Page's technical skills are very average and sometimes lackluster. He doesn't have much speed, and when he tries to play fast, he is very, very sloppy (heartbreaker solo, especially live). He generally is a very sloppy guitarist, but it's part of his style. He wouldn't be the same if he was clean. His sound is generally very dirty, raw, "improvised" and sloppy. I wouldn't like him as much he didnt have such a distinctive sound.
  12. I don't like to compare, but here are two guitarists I believe are more technically and musically accomplished than pagey. Jimi Hendrix This guy's playing is so unbelievable. Listening to him is like elevating yourself beyond reality. It's a blend of so much and so unrestrictive to formats. His rythm part is like his solo part, and vice versa. There is so much in his playing, it's beyond just playing something to a chord structure. The little notes he adds here and there can change so much about the song. Steve Vai A modern genius. Just because he did not play in the 60s or make some big name from a world famous rock band does not mean that he is any less than the gods of rock. His music is much like hendrix's- without restrictions, without boundaries, and at times without a sense of intention. It's free flowing and it just works like that. Pagey is great, he has a great sense of direction and melody, and his riff writing is some of the best. Again, music is subjective, of course. Some people could even consider Raffi to be a "better" guitarist than Brian May.
  13. Do I Creep You Out- weird Al
  14. Love Weezer. One of the better alternative rock bands.
  15. This is very hard.....I would usually go with Lennon or some member of the Beatles, or Elvis, but there is one that comes ahead.
  16. Oh, neoclassical metal, I thought you were talking about neoclassical as in igor Stravinsky. I used to listen to a bit of it. Yngwie Malmsteen is great at first, but I slowly got bored of him. My reccommendation is Jason Becker, his style is more interesting and refreshing and not just a rundown of every minor scale in the universe.
  17. 17. Led Zeppelin is the first band I actually was interested in.
  18. Hmmmm. I play the electric guitar My favourite show is Whose Line is it Anyways. I work at a Honeywell plant. I'm only 5'3 I'm graduating this year. (High school)
  19. Running with the Devil - Van Halen
  20. For me, hands down In Rainbows by Radiohead. They made big news with their "Pay whatever you want" dealio, but I think the album was much more than a breakthrough in that regard. It's one of the most refreshing, fascinating albums I've heard in some time, crawling with electronica and experimentation. Radiohead is truly a pioneer band. In a decade they will be legends. Honorable Mentions: The Neon Bible, Arcade Fire, and Memory Almost Full, Paul Mccartney.

  22. 15 Step, Radiohead In Rainbows, Best Record of 2007, hands down!
  23. A reunion is a great thing, but to be honest, I don't think they will be nearly as good live as they used to be. Robert Plant's voice isn't nearly as glorious or capable, along with jimmy page's guitar playing. They're old folks, mang. but again, I'm basing this on concert footage that were recently filmed... so maybe they'll turn out better than I expect. I'd go see them just so I can say to my children that I saw Led Zeppelin live one day. Still a new record would be awesome. (Woooto!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
  24. Just finished The Lovely Bones. It was getting good, until the end, which completely ruined the whole thing.
