  1. Like a couple of the other posters here, I would also like to see a Led Zeppelin show from early in their career. If I'm choosing an artist I never got to see at all, then the top two are The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. Even though The Beatles were drowned out by the audience noise, just the experience of seeing them in person would be tremendous. In other words, if the choices were: (1) never got to see The Beatles or (2) saw The Beatles but the sound sucked, I would still go with (2). With Jimi Hendrix, seeing the original Experience would be my first choice but I would be ecstatic t
  2. It looks like it will be a good read! I checked out your website too. I like seeing photos of visits to LZ related places.
  3. That whole weekend leading up to the show was so much fun. Starting when I stepped off the plane and the immigration agent asked how long I was staying. When I replied I was going home on Dec. 11 he asked in a dry tone if I was there for the Led Zeppelin concert. The gatherings the night before the concert, even the long wait to pick up ticket and wristband and then wait again in the merchandise line just built up the buzz and anticipation. Finally, standing in the crowd on the arena floor witnessing such a wonderful show. Truly, a spectacular adventure. Still hard to believe it was ten y
  4. If I recall, the Plant character's line was something like "What do I know, I'm just the singer" but I thought it sounded sarcastic, as if his real meaning was: I'm not stupid so don't waste my time with bullshit. To me, he didn't seem clueless at all. Anyway, I know there isn't much point in me dissecting a small bit of a dead show but I just had a different perspective on that particular scene.
  5. I was on the fence for awhile because I thought it was kind of expensive for a conversation without a musical performance but I finally bought a ticket. It comes with a copy of the book too.
  6. We aren't able to go on Oct. 17th because we have concert tickets, but AMC is offering a screening on the 18th. I've got tickets now ($18 apiece), and I've pre-ordered the Deluxe edition. I can't wait to re-live that night a little!
  7. Thanks for posting that link! That was such an incredible experience and I'll treasure it forever.
  8. It looks like it's going to play where I live, but we already have concert tickets for Oct. 17. If they add a midnight show I could do both, otherwise I'll just wait for the DVD. I've waited five years already, another month won't hurt. Either way, I'm looking forward to re-living that night.
  9. Several years ago we were at a conference in Cincinnati and took a few days after to wander around in Ohio. Number one on the list for me was a pilgrimage to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. We really enjoyed it and I recommend it. We liked the Air Force Museum in Dayton too.
  10. Just hearing that teaser of GTBT gives me chills again. Truly. I wouldn't trade that night, that whole weekend, for anything.
  11. The Beach Boys last night at the Hollywood Bowl.

    I think the trailers for the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo began showing sometime last summer, but the movie opens on 12/21/2011, which is right around the corner.
  13. I watched the DVD again. I haven't tried to spot myself in the crowd on the floor, but I don't think I'm visible anyway. I really hope that there is an official release someday. Well, there's not much I can add to what's already been said. It was an incredible night and I would do it all over again.
  14. I saw Led Zepagain awhile back and they were excellent. I think they recreate the complete setlists from particular shows. The night I saw them they played one of the 6/77 LA Forum sets. Dazed and Confused is a tribute band in San Diego. I just saw them recently and they were also very good, definitely worth seeing.
  15. I never saw the televised version. I do remember Robert messing up some of the lyrics, but I thought the sound was good.
  16. I haven't listened to the debut album in a long time, but I remember liking it when it came out, especially the tracks with Jeff Beck. I think I'll give it another spin. The follow-up LP didn't grab me at all, though.
  17. Thanks for sharing the production sheet. I had read somewhere that they rehearsed I Can't Quit You. I was there too, and in spite of the mistakes I thought it was better than the Live-Aid performance and the excitement of seeing them in person again outweighed the flaws for me.
  18. I liked it, I thought it was amusing.
  19. His last name sounded like "Sherinian" so that must be right.
