  1. A while back in my LZ facebook group. Someone was saying that Zep was more of a project and that they were not really friends as much. With the exception of Bonzo and Robert. Whats your take. Did they all really have to be friends. What does friendship in a band mean and does it matter?
  2. Zep 2 and PG are tied at #1. Zoso and Zep 1 are tied at #2. Zep 3 and HOTH are tied at 3. Then ITTOD and Presence is last.
  3. Joseph Gorden Levett for Jimmy Page. Cristian Bale for Bonham. Jude Law for Plant. Topher Grace for JPJ. If I could play with time and get them when they were younger.
  4. It depends on how we look at it. I add Page and Plant solo tours with Zep material in. So take that away. Its a different story. P/P and Plant solo have done Lots of Zep material that never got done with Zep. So we now have Custard Pie/Hey Hey What Can I do/FOr Your Life-which at the O2 to me was better than the studio version. A Carasolsambra in a medley/In the Light the start/Wanton Song/Living Loving Maid-solo Plant/Good Times Bad Times. There are some others.
  5. The thing I don't get about Zep is why they could not pull off Levee Live for the most part. Was it really that hard. Then you see them doing In My time of dying and its heavy as Levee to.
  6. Whats your take on the hard rockers of Zep 3 in terms of progression of songs style and how Zep were evolving with the songs. So thats Immigrant Song/Celebration Day/Out on the Tiles. I guess you can add the Blues of Since I've been loving you as well. For me this is the album where I hear Zep getting a bit slick. Robert's voice is now more that hammer of the gods wail. He almost sounds country if that makes sense. His vocal diction has changed. Almost like Zep got a newer singer. Jimmy feels more warrior in his guitar tone. No real sorcery style licks. Stinging solos
  7. I may have stated this before. In my head sound wise. I feel Like Eddie is The Flash. Jimmy is Gandolf. I feel like Eddie has more flow to my ears. Jimmy feels like he has more sorcery in his songs.
  8. I think that Plant has a lot of attitude on For Your Life. Love his vocal on that number.
  9. I should have thought about the title a bit more. Which musician is as heavy as Bonzo on their instrument.
  10. Zep was more Complex. I felt like Eddie seems to be able to flow a bit better than Page on his instrument. I don't know how to say this but if Page was a superhero. He would be Green Lantern. Where he can make constructs. EVH was The Flash. The powers are already there.
  11. I love AC/DC. Bon Scott era has less filler songs. Brian Johnson songs are good, but they are missing that swing that Bon Scott era had.
  12. To your ears. Whats the difference between the two as players? I feel like Page's guitar playing he is digging for sounds. Eddie just has it and spits it out. Its almost like Eddie is not thinking about what he plays. Page is always The Commander thinking about his next move. Page is sloppy, but I love it. Eddie is more precise and he can't disguise his sound. Even when he is not tapping. I feel like Eddie's better at the fast songs than slow songs. Page is a Blues player with a bit of magic. They are both lead players in their bands in terms of songwriters. I feel like
  13. If Bonzo is considered one of the heaviest Drummers. Then who would be his equivlent on Keys/Vocals/Guitar/Bass and even guitar solos. For me Keys-John Lord. Guitar-Tony Iommi. Bass-Jack Bruce. Vocals-David Coverdale in his prime or? What do you all think?
  14. Strider. Look at this. Plant and Page doing Rock and Roll and Plant singing in the same vein as Studio RR and he is about 47/48 in this. Yet when he was 25 it was harder to sing in the key of Studio Rock and Roll live on TSRTS. I don't get it.
  15. Strider I will have to hear more of those live versions that you stated.
  16. I guess the slowed down version is funky, yet Studio RR beats live RR. I also think that MMHop is not really great live. Zep seems to be able to do the Blues numbers and stretching out songs more better than the tighter songs.
  17. I don't mind TSRTS RR. Its just comes across as LZ being lazy or Plant had to rev up his voice for later songs on TSRTS.
  18. I was watching Zep's TSRTS Rock and Roll vs Knebworth's RR. Why do you all think that Knebworth's RR has higher energy than TSRTS version. Also. Studio RR has high energy as well.
  19. I meant CD's/Tapes not Vinyl in the bargin bin.
  20. I don't find Page in steller form on ITTOD. He stings on Presence though. Perhaps its the production. I Zep is better when Page is at the helm of producing.
  21. If Pressence and ITTOD were so great. Why is it when I am in a Record shop. Both those albums are in the bargain bin?
  22. What songs do you think are counterparts to each other with Zep/Sabbath. Like This would be Sabbath's Stairway if you will. Zep- Communication Breakdown to Sabbath would be Paranoid. Dazed and Confused to Sabbath would be Black Sabbath. Whole Lotta Love to Sabbath is Iron Man. Black Dog to Sabbath is War Pigs. No Quater to Sabbath is Planet Caravan.
  23. Presence to me is hard and ruff. Its Zep in a bad mood. Not one really happy song on there. ITTOD sounds a little bit happy. Its hard to connect ITTOD with the band that made Zep 1 to PG. I guess each band is different. To me its like Zep really aged after Presence. Someone here said it a long time ago. ITTOD sounds like Zep aged 10 yrs from Presence.
  24. Whats the big difference between these two albums for you? For me. Presence feels more connected to the first 6 albums. ITTOD. It feels like Zep aged. No longer kids if you get my meaning. Presence has more solid Riffs/Solos. The songs come off as darker and not in a good way. ITTOD riffs are ok, but not spectacular. I never hear anyone cover this era of Zep. Fool in the Rain is the only song I hear on the radio. I can't belive in the 3 yrs between both alums resulted in a sonically weak album in ITTOD. Mind you. At least it feels like Zep are right in time and they tr
