  1. I think Zep is an influence to most bands in a sense that they are one of the first bands that people listen to, and then they start listening to all of the Zep music out there, then they explore similar artists/other famous artists of the time, and eventually they either end up with us listening to new stuff with the old stuff, or they lean toward one of the extremes. I think southern rock is totally dead, but you can still see it in bands like Shinedown, Saliva, Drowning Pool, even bands like 12 stones and the like. Its not blatant like the influence that Black Sabbath had to a lot of Metal bands, but its still there. I think bands like Zep are more of foundations for todays bands. Maybe influence is to specific. Still the cliche is true here that you cant build a good house without a solid foundation. People have said that theres really only two kinds of bands out there, those that follow Zep, and those that follow Sabbath. Im not sure how that is true or not, but it makes sense in the context of having music that serves as a foundation rather than a direct influence. (I dont really like the rolling stones, and ive never been a good beatles fan so im not really fit to comment on their influence.) -Zep
  2. Oh brother. Made my first post in over a year today. I remember signing up for the old forum when evster2012 was still around. Those were the best posts haha. Signed up on May 15, 2006. Ahh the memories haha. -Zep
  3. You know what bro, since everyone on here is gonna be a dick to you for apparently having some sort of repost/something they dub not important that you want to talk about, I (a passing member, age 20, who originally signed up almost 5 years ago to the day) will have a simple conversation about the band I used to love. One not involving huge egos that need to one up eachother with tiny pieces of information to prove who is the biggest fan, or "connoisseur" attitude problems. Just normal every day human interaction. I used to love led zeppelin. I wouldnt listen to anything else, and if I did, it wasnt written in my lifetime. My first post on the old forum was about hating modern music. Over the years Ive come to the opinion that zep killed almost everything that would have followed them. There will never be anything like them again because they were that good. I realize what a closed minded douche bag I actually was, and now I actually listen to mostly new music with what I consider the best of the old stuff mixed in. Lets face it, nazareth and fog hat made great music, but that doesnt mean that new stuff is bad either. Really I got tired of listening to more of the same, and have moved to liking Breaking Benjamin and Avenged Sevenfold, to name my two favorites. Believe it or not, guitar solos got boring because either they were poorly done, or were just rehashed blues scales. A 7 minute guitar solo can get quite boring, wheras a 7 minute song that doesnt even contain a solo, I find, can still be very pleasing. I think a lot of the people who followed Zep dirctly have progressively got stuck into patterns that get old, or gotten to be hipsters/eccentrics that just took it too far and cant let go or feel some kind of strange need to hold on to it and have an odd reactionary outlook that I will never understand. I think Zep today is more of a background influence to a lot of bands, and less of a direct influence. There really arent many bands that followed directly because there was an overall call for diversity/progression/increased technicality that drove the music to differentiate over the past 40 or so years (depending on how long you want to go back). Basically what Im trying to say is that I think it is going to be hard to find any direct influences. It would be much more common to see someone say that they wanted to be like Jimmy Page, rather than someone writing music that was similar. I do have a biased opinion though because Ive always been more partial to heavier music and simply loved Zep because they were a great fucking band. If you got bored and skipped to here, then Ill just say that eventhough the influence isnt blatant, that doesnt mean its not there behind the music. And, even if the influence is gone, we still have the masterpieces that Zep themselves wrote. Eventually I think modern music is going to burn out and...you guessed it...either music will evolve, or it will revert. Doesnt matter so much to me, as I love it all. Dare I go as far as to say that the rock genre is pretty dead. Its either metal, alternative, grunge, or some other niche band. Its rare to hear anything termed as simply rock these days. Everyone has some kind of strange urge to be unique, and be their own precious little snowflake. Appreciate the past and respect the present. I used to hear my parents say stuff like, "we never really payed attention to that band back in the day. we dont know why. theyre pretty good in retrospect." I dont want that to be me haha. I also dont want to pass up whats good now to be a hardcore fanboy of the past. Its just plain insecure in my estimation. Nobody is saying that we cant listen to the old and the new. Someone will probably tell me I'm wrong, but its the way of the world. Its just my opinion. At least I had to common decency to respond. -Zep
  4. Wow, its been a while. I was going through my favories and remembered this forum. Its been a while. Brings back good memories. I went to check my email, and I still have the original confirmation email from the old forum saved in a folder. Signed up on May 16, 2006. So much has changed since then. I was stopping by, and had a strange urge to post. Thanks guys. -Zep
  5. Recently I thought about what it would be like if I only had 24 hours to live. I thought about all the things that I would do. I was wondering if anyone out there had any good ideas. This is going to take place sometime this weekend. If your idea is good I will probably include it. If it is a waste of time then fuck off, cause I cant fly to the caribbean with a model in the near future. Here is a shortened list of the things I am going to do: The List: wake up at 8 go for a run say the rosary tell the girl i liked in highschool that i liked her. schedule tatoo??? (i know i cant actually get the tatoo on the day of so bear with me) watch a browns game play halo beat a 50/drink large quantities of mountain dew call friends/realatives that i cant visit ride my bike. i race bikes barber shop shave. like they do in mafia movies eat at robins pizza kitchen, a little shop that makes the best wings in the world. watch top gear end the day with a bon fire with my friends and relatives come up with a memorable quote. Again, if you have any good ideas, please share, or just create your own "live like you are dying day."
  6. Thanks for the posts. I took some advice from them and had an emt I know look at it. He said a few more layers of skin and I would be at muscle. They did bleed a bit, but he said that I shoudn't have to go to the hospital unless it gets infected and to keep it covered unless other circumstances come up which I should not cover them. (Ex. excessive sweating or the bandages become wet and other things of that nature.) He gave me burn cream and bandages. Just one more question, Does anyone here have any guesses as to how long this will take to heal? Thanks for your concern and input. By the way, I am going to try the tea thing. Seems like a pretty cool old home remedy. Couldn't hurt any more than the toothpaste I accidentally got in it last night.
  7. I realize this is not a medical forum, but I have to ask for advice, and while I don't have time to sign up and wait for an answer from some other forum or doctor or something, I figure I could at least ask the people here as it will be the quickest reply I can get until the morning. I recently got severe rope burn (Yesterday). (It's really bad.) It is on my hands and goes past the skin all the way to the layers under the skin. Does anyone know how to treat this? If so your advice would be appreciated, if not, fuck off. I don't need sarcasm at this point, and am in pain when I move my hands in certain directions. I think I'll go to the hospital tomorrow, but I'll check this page later tonight for any responses. Thank You.
  8. A while back VH1 classic showed a vid of Zep, which was like a full length film, and they were playing folk music with what I think to be Indians, or possibly arabs (not the american derrogatory sense of the word, I myself am part lebaneese, so I dont want any shit for this). Mr. Page I believe was playing Ovation Guitars. Just wandering. Also, there seems to be a dispute amongst me and my friends. Some of them believe the marshall tucker band wrote cant you see, but I think it was the Allman Brothers Band, I know they both did versions, but I would like to know if anyone can tell me who wrote it.
  9. It reads good, but I would like to hear the music.
  10. I dont know if anyone has said this or not and I am too lazy to find out. Without music, lyrics are poetry, and I have never been an avid reader of poetry. I do play guitar, and I still like to hear the music, even without lyrics when I play it. For me though it just wouldnt be the same if one of the two were missing though.
  11. Personally I dont think the whole thing will last very long without Plant, but I would really like to see Page and Jones, since I was born after Zep's glory days, and could not get to the O2. I have rather mixed feelings on the matter.
  12. I dont care if it is a fucking repost or not. I dont mind hearing it over and over again, and I dont know if you have realized this knebby but there are quite a few posts now, and I know this is a recent matter, so it should have been easy to find, it is not always easy to find what you are looking for, and there is bound to be a few reposts, so all of you haters dont get your panties in a bundle over it. Remember you interpret emotion yourself so if you take this the wrong way it is your fault.
  13. Thanks. The small exerpts say that it is made by the guy who used to make them's kids, And that they still use the same parts, as well as press to stamp the steel for the box. Other than that I cant find anything. I hope its the real deal.
  14. I have been looking for a Sola Sound Tonebender for quite some time now. I have always thought that good things never die, because they are always reissued and reproduced, etc. I was surfing some music websites and found that Sola Sound changed its name to ColorSound a while back. After a quick search I found some Tonebenders on sale. Here is the link. http://www.musictoyz.com/guitar/pedals/colorsound.php As I am a complete noob when it comes to posting links I will leave that up to you to copy and paste it into the url. Theres not a lot of info on these and I cant find a website for the ColorSound brand name. Anyone know if these are the real deal? Anyone have one of these or even a real one? Some pics would be appreciated.
  15. Sup Ev. I havn't been on for a long time and just wanted to drop in and say hey. Once you slowed down posting and then all but disappeared nobody seemed to have the same kind of insight into the lesser known Zep stuff and the forum kind of lost its appeal for me. Its good to see that you are well. Happy new year, and good luck in 2009.
