  1. Well, it was nice to see Jimmy and hear him play. I did wonder at one point if he was playing but decided he was! But personally, I didn't like Leona Lewis or anything about our (British) 8 minute handover slot. I thought it was embarassing, but that's not for here.
  2. I can't stand Leona Lewis. Of all the people to duet with..... Hopefully it will be good.
  3. Ahh, I see. Here are links http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0...=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE The synopsis made me raise an eyebrow because of what is says about the 02, bringing the band back and referring to Robert as Jimmy's part time nemesis... http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0...=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
  4. Not sure if this is the correct place to post. What I post usually gets moved! Does anyone know anything about the two new books coming out. You can find details on Amazon - I would do a link, but apparently we aren't allowed to do that here? Anyhooo....the books are When Giants Walked The Earth - A Biography of Led Zeppelin by Mick Wall The synopsis for this book made me raise an eyebrow... Also Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin: The Illustrated History of The Heaviest Rock Band of All Time by Jon Bream What do you think?
  5. I don't really like Coda, ITTOD or Presence (with the exception of We're Gonna Groove). I prefer all their earlier albums. So they may have gone in a direction I wouldn't have been keen on.

    Led Zeppelin at Bath

    Thank you so much for posting that. I'm a Bath girl, but was born too late unfortunately!!!! Would you mind emailing it to me?
  7. If you read my original post I said 'I' think heavy metal is crap, which I do, which is just my opinion, which I am entitled to. At no point did I say because I don't like it, it is shit music. Each to their own.
  8. I think of Communication Breakdown as being quite a punky song! mos6507 - I agree about your high art point. But even if I liked heavy metal, I still dont think they were/are. I think they inspired what became heavy metal.
  9. I don't like Led Zeppelin being called a 'heavy metal' band. Not just because I think heavy metal is crap but I don't think they are/were heavy metal. Obviously they were influenced by different genres, but I think heavy rock is a better general term for them. Yes it seems they inspired 'heavy metal' bands etc along with others, but the connection irritates me when I see them linked to it. There I've said it I know there are lots of you who disagree
  10. Some sound funky to me too. Such as We're Gonna Groove and even parts of The Song Remains the Same.
  11. Does he also like walking in the park?
  12. Please can someone tell me. There are two vocalists on The Battle of Evermore, aren't there? Plant and ?
  13. Does anyone know if this new DVD is any good? I did post about it before, but the thread was moved and then disappeared. Before it went someone mentioned it isn't a warner music release. So is it likely to be rubbish?
  14. I think The Rough Guide to Led Zeppelin is pretty good, although I haven't read many.
