  1. I have often thought about about how fabulous it would be to go down to New Orleans and run into Robert Plant. I know he hangs down there, and loves it.

    I've never been there......Sad.......so many places, so little time (and $)

    Well Hell, Com'on down the city is kickin' Mardi-Gras will be Feb. 5 this year but you can start catching the parades as soon as the last week of Jan. Never Know who you'll run into. If the weather is nice should be the biggest since the storm. Plenty of stars hang'n out down here. Our latest neighbors are Brad and Angelina if your a fan.

    Sharon Osbourne had cancer too and she recovered really alot easier then I did.I am so happy she recovered too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!She had it alot easier then me but she is a rich woman so that's why.it is not easy to recover from an illness when you have nothing.No money.

    :o 4th stage!

    I caught mine at stage 1, took me 8 weeks to get back to work and still not 100%

    been 2yrs 9mnths, hang in there girl.

    God bless you, hope you get well.

  3. Personally, when I'm at home and in audiophile mode, I'll put my 200 gram vinyl masters on through my "hi-fi" (remember when they called it that? :lol: ).

    If they do release another remaster, I'll buy it, but mostly for the packaging and the candy (are you listening Jimmy?). :whistle:

    Mostly, CDs are (for me) for casual listening (on the Walkman, at a party, in the truck, etc). Call me crazy (or just old fashioned), but when I want to truly immerse myself in the music, it's the warmth of vinyl that calls. Even if I can't hear that squeaky pedal! :lol:

    There's an organic atmosphere there that digital has not yet delivered.

    From another post I wrote

    Zeppelin Survived When the Levee Broke

    QUOTE (zepsteve @ Jan 2 2008, 01:22 AM) post_snapback.gifi love the clarity of the cd but i miss playing my albums i gotta get anther record player B)

    Katrina took my cd collection, the electrolytes in salt water have a way of ruining digitals, but guess what! my vinyl save for the jackets, carefully cleaned off the muck and pulled the ole sansui from the attic and first song "When the Levee Breaks" kinda ironic


  4. Why do the US fans feel that they deserve a tour? Are you all better than any other Zeppelin fans in the world?

    What's with all the US bashing on the internet? Sure we have an ass for a boss but if yungins would take the time to break out a history book you would understand if not for the good ole USA most of us would be speaking German or Jappanese, :watchingyou: turds!

    98,500 tix refunded 3 days before show date, this is where they left off


  5. Here's my story and I'm sticking to it :beer: From another post


    I was at this show as well, didn't think I was destined to see Zeppelin though. As a previous poster said, we had to stand in line outside the assembly center box office in the freezing sleet and rain to get tickets my feet were frozen and the crowds were crazy, bending steel barricades, jumping off the box office roof to get out after getting their tickets. Me and a bunch of friends spent the night in two vans in the parking lot the night before. Like to froze to death. The next day while in line near the the box office window, I remember turning around just in time to see one of my friends smack a parked car with his van right in front of the assembly center now called the P-Mac for Pistol Pete Maravitch. After a postponed show, the day we left for the show in March my car breaks down, my friend and I left the piece of crap and hitch hiked the rest of the way to Baton Rouge. Ended up catching a ride with two guys going to the show as well. Our lucky day NOT! these guys were blitzed. Well as soon as we caught sight of the assembly center, we said "we'll get out here" and walked the few blocks away. Kept my stub for the show many years, then one day I was on ebay and saw people, collectors I presume, buying Zeppelin stubs for big bux. Guess what my first ebay sale was? Hope The guys aren't mad at me. After all I went through to see them I worked for those tickets.

    If you guys ( Jimmy, Robert, John and Jason ) read this, I hope you go on tour again and stop by New Orleans again, you guys are still the "HAMMER of the GODS! " down here.

    I caught your show in 94 at lake front arena .We were blown away" Hurdy-gurdie "

  6. Mobile, Alabama May 13, 1973.....UP FRONT!!!!!....was looking up at Jimmy.......got an unused ticket to Louisianna Superdome July 30, 1977......this is where Plant came into New Orleans hotel and found out Karac had died.......and end of US touring. See link.


    I'm glad you posted that, I couldn't remember what year that New Orleans show was.

    I had a pair of tickets for that show as well but turned them in for a refund. I know it said no refund but they did refund for that show. From what I heard reported in the media, up until 3 days before show date they had sold 98,500 tix. Stones hold the Dome record at 89,586

    I did however see them May 19, 1977 in Baton Rouge and caught the Page/Plant tour in 94 at UNO Lake front arena, that show Rocked as well.

  7. yeah he died while Zeppelin was touring the US in 77.... that's why what was left of the tour was canceled and Robert retreated into seclusion for the next year or so

    Actually his son died in 1980 I remember because I had tickets to see them in New Orleans that May and 3 days before the show date they cancelled the show and in september John died an that was that.

  9. Well no encounters here yet, and there was as good a chance as any to bump into them here in New Orleans as Jimmie's son went to school down here. I believe they may even own some real estate down here. Don't know what their status would be now after the storm, a lot has changed since then although the uptown area was spared major damage from the flooding for the most part.

    I think the celebs like it down here because they can walk amongst the common folks with out being constantly hounded.

    Always keeping an eye out.

    Maybe we can get one of them to be King Bacchus one year for Mardi-Gras

  10. I think if they were to use an opening act, they might consider something region specific. For instance here in New Orleans they might use a local band like Cowboy Mouth or Better than Ezra or maybe a local Blues or Jazz band. Other groups have gone this route.

    I was fortunate enough to see them in 77 in Baton Rouge with no opening act. In 1980 there was a show planed for the Super Dome that was postponed when Plants son died that was eventually canceled. Get this, it was general admission and 3 days before show day they had already sold 98,500 tickets and counting. By the way the Stones hold the Dome record with 89,586. I had 4 tix which I had to return for a refund. :o I did catch the Page/Plant show in 94 at U.N.O. Lake front arena, closest thing to a Zep concert I could have imagined DAMN! they Rocked the Roof off the place, and that band that played with them from Egypt the guy with the Hurdy-Gurdie that was freakin wild.
