  1. Wish I lived in a place where I could run into Percy - instead of in this hole....lol Damn, he looks good. Rested & ready - for the Zep reunion tour.....;o)

    A big project?

    Yes, I sure as hell hope something big really is in the cards - something involving a TOUR, by God....
  3. Whatever it is, I'm hoping beyond hope that it'll involve Jimmy touring: I've just GOT to see The Man before it's too late.....
  4. She's got Pappy's peepers alright....lol. Lovely bride.

    O2 concert DVD

    I never saw TSRTS in theaters (oh, did I want to!), but I well remember the huge lines snaking for blocks for those numerous midnight shows. NO other band had their mystique & drawing power.
  6. Oh, it's all just a matter of individual tastes.
  7. Mercury was a good performer, but as a singer, I don't think he belongs near either Plant or Rodgers.
  8. Now, THAT'S the great prize, IMO: a photo with The Man himself. I'd give anything to have one!
  9. A tantalizing tidbit from JPJ, to be sure. I find it curious that he'd didn't quickly add "it's NOT with Jimmy & Jason, by the way": being secretive about a big upcoming project with 2 other non LZ-related heavy-hitters is one thing, but it seems, to me at least, that he'd want to squelch any wildfire speculation about the likelihood of THE longed-for tour - if it WASN'T in the cards. And so we wait with cautious hope.....
  10. The media creates that shit. Scum like MTeeHee's "Sumner Redstone" & Judy McGrath. In this degenerate "Western" society the above usurpers and others of their ilk have created with their media stranglehold, being on the idiot box is the Ultimate - doesn't matter what for. Lemmings love reality filth precisely because the "star" assclowns are has-beens or never-wases. It enables them to dream: "Hey - I don't have any brains or talent either! I could be a star, too!" For proof, witness all the fruits 'n nuts that crawl out from under their slimy rocks for the American Idol auditions, As for Howard Stern: that camel-faced bastard is badly in need of a lengthy dirtnap.
  11. (Placing index finger on lips, commencing rapid up-down motion): BLUBBITTYBLUBBITTYBLUBBITY......
  12. Hilarious list. Any list where painful garbage like Bon phony places ahead of KASMHIR cannot be taken seriously. Let's face it, they're a bunch of over-rewarded Jersey hacks that evoke nothing but NAUSEA with their cheeseball ballads and corny cliche fake rockers. Ugggh!! Yeah. I've always hated those turds, too: a little bit of nothing whittled down to a sharp point - "but Jon is, like, soooo HOT!!". Bottom line: You can't expect idiots raised on "Sumner Redstone's" ©rap/grunge '90s MTeeHee to know what real music is. Or even how to put their baseball caps on straight or pull their baggy-ass pants up. As for those worthless hacks Bret Michaels & Dee Snider: someone please set the former's faggy straw cowgirl hat on fire (while he's wearing it), and as for the latter, just keep the butt-ugly motherfucker the hell off the airwaves..... It's for the CHILDREN!
  13. Ahhh, so slimy old geriatric fart "Sumner Redstone" strikes yet again, eh? That hideous bastard's Viacom evil empire has utterly destroyed rock & roll. Even his own family hates his greasy guts. At least it's gratifying to know that after causing vast cultural devastation for so many years the scum is now in deep financial shit.
  14. It's simply impossible to find a singer whose stature can even come close to equaling that of Plant or the band, so the choice must be made on the issues of vocal ability and stylistic fit. Dio has without question still got the pipes. If he dispensed with his tacky Devil horns hand gesture metal shit for the duration, I think he'd do an outstanding job. Paul Rodgers is one of the greatest singers of all time (and we know Jimmy thinks so, too); we know he'd handle many of the numbers brilliantly, so it's only a question of style. Personally, I can't really see him pulling off, say, Battle of Evermore convincingly, though. Ann Wilson is an intriguing dark horse: she definitely has the vocal power to pull it off, and a well-known love of Zep. Plus, the surprise pick of a woman (along with some fresh material) would make it clear that this is something new - not just a nostalgia trip with the best Robert stand-in they could scrounge up.
  15. I have a particular hatred for those scum: right from their beginning, they've always been the most notorious Hollywood outfit when it comes to masking propaganda as "entertainment" - and now THIS.....
  16. Why? Great artists & musicians, along with conquerors & geniuses, make up the bulk of celebrated historical figures. Who the hell's gonna remember, say, "Lord" Levy, Blair's paymaster?
  17. I agree 100% (are Americans allowed opinions on this matter? ). Knighthoods, to have any real meaning, should be rare as hen's teeth, reserved for genius inventors, scientific greats, war heroes and all those whose brilliant or courageous actions benefit their people. Bestowing them on artists & musicians - however talented & beloved - tends to ruin their artistic careers - and giving them out like Pez to partisan political hacks who raise money for a particular party renders them mere trash. Besides, Jimmy Page has no need for it: he's almost certain to be remembered centuries after most of today's "knights" are forgotten dust.
  18. Greatest singers in the "Rock Era".....a pretty meaningless categorization. But here's some of my favorites of whatever style: 1. Roy Orbison: Many of his songs were a little too "poppy" for my tastes - but not one could touch his range. 2. Robert Plant (of course) 3. George Jones: The greatest country singer who ever drew breath. 4. Paul Rodgers 5. Van Morrison 6. Joni Mitchell 7. Merle Haggard 8. Kate Bush 9. Waylon Jennings 10. Sandy Denny
  19. Are you a fan of ZZ Top’s music? JP: I think that’s what rock ‘n’ roll is all about. They really are incredible. They have great music, really fine playing, really solid, and they have a sense of humor as well. They’re damn fine. And everyone is enjoying it and they’re enjoying themselves. As far as their videos go, every one has been a winner, hasn’t it? Once again, Jimmy proves his impeccable taste in music. That is your therapy? JP: I’ve already said to you earlier on it was great therapy. Come on, get on with it! I hope Rosen wore brown pants to the interview....
  20. This may be old news to the extremely knowledgeable like Steve Jones, I'm not sure, but here's a fantastic recording of Jimmy being interviewed for Guitar Player magazine: '77 Jimmy Interview
  21. I don't necessarily think they "owe" us a tour, but i would probably pay any price for a ticket, or even sell my wife into slavery. There, that's my humble, unsolicited opinion. It's edifying to read the words of a morally-upright man who knows what really matters in life.
  22. He's totally different from from Robert, of course, but there's no denying the li'l fella can wail.
  23. They might consider Ronnie James Dio: an undoubtedly great singer with plenty of range - plus, he's of Jimmy & Jonesy's generation.
