  1. Sorry I haven't read any previous posts. However i've learnt over the years not to rely on drunk roadies or band friends etc. There's also no smoke without fire. JPJ has just given an interview and he's the most straight up person within the band. If he says nothing has been decided and they're gonna meet sometime this month to talk about it then I believe him. Jason Bonham can't comment because he has self admitted that he's too excitable so he's always the last to know any firm plans. I'm sure he'd drop "Foreigner" at the drop of a hat to do a Zep gig/tour. So it only comes down to Jimmy
  2. I have made my feelings publicly known towards Harvey Goldsmith innumerable times. Here's the facts: There was just as much publicity surrounding the purchase of tickets as there was surrounding the event itself. It still didn't stop touts or the like selling either their spare ticket or in some cases both. The 02 staff weren't checking if the wristbands had been "tampered" with at all. The application process was a farce. Lets face it if you're a casual fan or just someone who thinks they can make a quick buck then you're gonna apply. WTF, it doesn't cost anything so why not. Hence the
  3. It does seem that every time Zep have a major release they design a great website, publicise the hell out of it, and then leave it to it's own devices. I remember expecting loads from the site that was designed when DVD, HTWWW came out. If you'd have checked back 3 years later it looked exactly the same as it did in 2003. However the upsides are that there's a great timeline feature now with online programmes, and also a great forum. I suppose that's all we can ask for for now. I'm certainly not expecting any of the band to jump online and give a QnA, or make sure that any forum members get
  4. Absolutely right. I missed that one. I suppose i'm looking at when it was looking like it became a regular part of the set. I hope you agree that there's only 3 contenders though, DnC, WLL, SIBLY. Cheers!
  5. Er,,,,Saturday December 6th 1969, L'ecole Centrale Paris France. This was the 1st confirmed performance of WLL. I know they took December off which would only reaaffirm my belief that SIBLY was the most played live track. Now off to have some more meds ha! It's all fun but i'd love to know the answer. Best wishes chaps.
  6. Absolutely I think it's a great Idea. I had also looked at when SIBLY was dropped in 75 but I still think that it wins out. Lets wait and see. It's all fun at the end of the day. Cheers!
  7. "Whole Lotta Led". absolutely hilarious! "Stairway To Zeppelin" equally ridiculous. "Led Zep Too + Letz Zep + Graf Zep" I've seen them all. I don't know what to say. there's obviously a lot of bands out there(at least in the UK) that has one person that really wants to tip their hat to Zep. Some of them want to do justice to the original band. Great! however most of the time they sound crap. The best band I've ever seen though are Boot Led Zep. These guys were great. Not only did they recreate the original band in sound and performance but they also looked like them as well. Look at
  8. Really Sorry...... Couldn't be bothered to read through all the replies and pick one I fancied answering. Anyway....the cd sounds great. The DVD on the other hand.....well..... I think there's a few corners cut. I would have loved it if the album.."At Last", worked in sync with the vid. Obviously. the sound for both is great. But ....the visuals are sufferring once again. By this I mean that there was an obvious compromise made before the DVD was released. As always Jimmy has made sure that the band sound superb. However I was really hoping that the DVD was going to be, at the very least
  9. Just wondering how many people have heard this gig from 22/03/73. I'm particularly talking about the Dazed n Confused segment. All I want to say is....if anyone wanted to know why Zep couldn't continue after Bonzo died, then all the evidence is there. Listen to when Dazed and Confused cuts in til the end. It's completely out of this world. I love listening to this tape so much and it just proves to me why this band always will be the best live band in the world. Cheers1
  10. Ok a drum solo is essentially a "Drum Solo" However even though JB was soloing from 68-77 it was under 3 different titles Pat'sDelight, Moby Dick and Over The Top. Doesn't count sorry!
  11. Well you'd have had to wait til Jan 1970 and then not seen the 1980 tour. I know you've already said that, but I agree I can't imagine Led Zep without Whole Lotta Love but...... it was for a few years!
  12. Thanks so much for the healthy response. For all of those that answered "Stairway To Heaven" I think you haven't done your research.....no offense. Just to set a few things straight.....The 1st noted public performance of Whole Lotta Love was in December 1969. Even though the 2nd album was well completed within this time they were only playing "What Is and What Should Never Be" and "Heartbreaker" live. In fact at this point in time they were starting work on Zep III. At the point when they started introducing Whole Lotta Love as a permanent part of their set they were also "road testing",
  13. Dear Mr Goldsmith, You are a twat. You have absolutely no idea of modern culture. You are a dinosaur, trying to be part of the modern way of life. If fans want to go to a gig then they will pay whatever they want and exploit whatever means they have to. I wanted to see Led Zeppelin like my life depended on it, and guess what......I did. I had to pay a large amount of money to do so.....I paid over £1,000. Is this what you wanted? I know you were trying to stop touts and also trying to stop resale of tickets. However, my need to see this band play live was greater than than your p
  14. Don't know what to say in response. It's so full of "Hero worship Angst". I mean we've had enough of Dave Grohl trying to fill Bonzo's shoes for the last 10 years. Is this the latest episode that fans have to put up with because Nuno "Likes Zep", and wants to play Heartbreaker. I'm bored of these people. Probably being a bit harsh but I think I've been jaded after the whole Harvey Goldsmith "Biggest Fan" gets to go bullshit. I did get to go, and it cost me a lot of money, and I met a lot of idiots on the day who had no idea who or what Led Zeppelin were and why the gig was important. I st
  15. I don't know why i'm posting this cos i'm just putting myself out there to be voted Zep anorak of the year. Anyway, this is something that i've always wondered about. I've always wondered what song Led Zeppelin played the most times live. Don't ask me why but I suppose it's just one of those things. I own nearly every live bootlegged performance from them and I've got it down to 2 songs. So..... The contenders are "Dazed and Confused" and "Since I've Been Loving You". Remember this is only for when Led Zep played these songs. Not "Page and Plant" or "The Yardbirds" or the "02". Even th
