  1. Has anyone had the pleasure(displeasure?) of hearing the band Greta Van Fleet? If you thought Kingdom Come was a clone, as they were in a late 80's hair metal sense, this band takes it to a whole new level, with the singer actually copying Plant's hand gestures, and basically sounds EXACTLY like a young Plant. I would imagine this to change over time, as they appear to be just out of high school, but with people like Eddie Trunk talking them up daily on his Sirius XM show you have to wonder. I'm not sure what to think, and if you were Page, Plant and Jones, would this be flattering, or a joke? A constant annoyance? I personally prefer a band like Royal Blood expounding upon the Zep sound and doing something original with it, but to each their own. Curious to see the responses, esp from Page, Plant and Jones.
  2. so the Swan Song label has been resurrected as well? Awesome!
  3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebration_Day_(album) OCT 17!!!!!
  4. sorry if this has already been posted...
  5. I personally think it's way beyond over. Taking age into account is a very real thing, hell, Page is 68 and would be 69-70 into a tour. IMO they are going about it the right way. The O2 show was 5 years ago, and when you are at that advanced age, its the equivalent of a 30 year old aging 20 years. I can see a show here and there, but a tour? Never gonna happen. Go out on top and don't tarnish the legacy.
  6. This whole "FIVE" thing could mean a lot of things, but im betting it has to do with the O2 concert. five year anniversary of the shows Five disc box(dvd, rehearsals, behind the scenes etc?) a five night stand somewhere?(can only dream, right?) or, five band members, or the title of the dvd/cd set will be called "Led Zeppelin V" or, all five of the above
  7. we'll see if tomorrow brings a "four" then i will agree. I think Page is loving this.
  8. 5 years, 5 band members...the math works out lol

  11. might have something to do with the "Five" graphic on the official Facebook page....

    Jimmy Page Says...

    I remember Page saying in an interview that it was some live Zeppelin, and quote "Demo tapes of Zeppelin which covered all the pre-writing and construction of those early songs we did", as well as detailed demos for what Outrider was supposed to be, a double album that was going to be a rock side, blues, instrumental and experimental, and that after those were stolen he basically started over from scratch in the studio, and Outrider was born...If my memory serves me correctly... Look up the October 1988 issue of Guitar World with Page on the cover promoting Outrider. It's no big secret when it comes from the man himself in print.
  13. Interesting..... Stern asked if Tyler auditioned for Led Zeppelin, and the singer didn't exactly say no. Tyler mentioned by name the man who was Jimmy Page's manager, Peter Mensch. Tyler said Mench called him to say that Led Zeppelin had "just played live and that Robert wouldn't play with them again." So he was asked, "Want to come over and jam with the guys?" Tyler said it was natural to jump at the opportunity. However, when he and Page met face to face and was asked to record an album with him, Tyler turned that down due to his allegiance with Aerosmith. Tyler said he thinks he could have several ongoing projects and they wouldn't jeopardize his position with his bandmates in Aerosmith. For instance, he offered, he could play some Led Zeppelin shows. Yep, that's right, Tyler said of Led Zeppelin: "I may do some dates with them, just a couple of one-offs." But it wouldn't be a barrier: "That doesn't mean I'm joining Zeppelin."
  14. hell yeah it is! totally rockin' song, in fact the whole cd is pretty damn good. At first I was thinking "if Jimmy Page was involved with this, it would push it to insane levels", but after half a dozen listens, his presence, imo, might not be required. Josh Homme and Dave Grohl are serious talents, and JPJ...well, we all know his track record. Amazing stuff...Good for Jonesy!
  15. I have heard, and always thought that Plant walked away from P/P cause of Jimmy's drinking at the time
  16. id love to hear the complete version of this song...does it exist anywhere?
  17. It was called the Syria Mosque...which, sadly is no longer standing
  18. Yeah...Rob Mackowiak, when he played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, always had the opening riff to Heartbreaker as his music when he came up to bat
  19. Actually, why not just invite her tits...her only worthwile attribute.
  20. IMHO, I think the major catalyst in any new music will be JPJ. Just listen to his two solo cd's. Quite original and contemporary without bowing to recent or current musical trends, plus, the guy CAN write a monster riff (listen to B. Fingers!) as well as new and fresh sounding music (ex. Grind). I just hope they get on with it before it's too late. Let Robert do his thing, and move on.
  21. I like the idea, but i'm sure hes too busy with Queen. Rodgers has, in my opinion, gotten better with age. I never thought he had much of a stage presence with The Firm, but he has a great voice.
  22. just google Jimmy Page Les Paul Specs...tons of sites all the way down to wiring diagrams (which i will use to rewire my guitar, even tho it is not a les paul), sunburst attributes, etc...
  23. ya know what? so was I, and then i went on you tube to check some old P/P bootlegs...he really was fantastic and will be missed. I had heard that he worked on Page with various demos throught the years, and sadly nothing came of it except for Domino. I had heard he had substance issues(along with Page) that caused Plant to walk away from P/P. I hope this was NOT the case in his sad demise. R.I.P.
  24. anyone find that cheesy? I know id enjoy a glass of wine to along with this. Prolly THE WORST Plant track ive ever heard.
  25. XM/Sirius is kinda dropping the ball on this one. Here's an idea, have a special and play an UNRELEASED live show, from start to finish. Or have a talk show devoted to Zep talk and the new rumors. There's a shitload XM/Sirius could do, will they? Prolly not. It is still a killer channel, and one of 4 i actually listen to.
