  1. not meant sarcastically but.. what does it say on the dvd jacket? is there just a title and nothing else or does it hint at what the contents are? i'd certainly be interested to find out more on this dvd.
  2. hope you find this interesting... enjoy....
  3. producer: 'ok brian... freddie's just finished a song and it's quite tasteful and laid back.. umm.. not sure if it needs a solo.. maybe just hang back and punctuate certain points, dynamics' etc. brian: 'SOD THAT.. i've already written a solo that i'll shoe-horn into any type of song and it will involve me bombing up and down the fretboard in a pseudo-medieval fashion'. all: *SIGH*
  4. 'in through the out door' ...says it all really ...backdoor man indeed
  5. it's only a four hour shift so the backdoor man had to be on his toes..
  6. yeah! ..the whole 'math-core' thing.. i'm sure it's pleasing to someone's ear and each to their own but... if i wanted to watch someone pound a treadmill, lift weights and stare at themselves in an extremely insular way in the mirror.. i'd go to the gym.

    Robert and Maureen?

    unfortunately all of you ladies would be out of luck as robert clearly has an eye for the ...err... 'younger' woman.. 'i took her love at seventeen'... yeah, right! different times indeed.
  8. well put.. and... i don't think anyone should assume that learning to use a double bass pedal is easy. the presumtion seems to be that the pedal does all the work for you full stop. this isn't the case at all. it may make triplets and quads etc. easier but it takes some learning and practice in the first place to use two pedals effectively.. very much a drumming 'skill'. it's not like you press a magic button and glorious 16ths roll forth from the kit..
  9. and everyone wonders why robert's always so reticent to sing/tour a lot of these songs?? making passive agressive/sarcastic comments regarding reforming would be my only option too
  10. well.. there you go.. it would be a massive coincidence for robert to have said 'braced' which, while technically a very usable word.. highly unlikely, especially as there is photographic evidence and reports of jason admitting (not that there's anything to be ashamed of) that he uses a double bass pedal. either way with conversations like this that always bring out 'youtube' style comments like: 'i can play that' ..so what? a million guitarists,bass players,singers could probably all individually play a lot of the things that well known bands can but did they also join/make a band where the whole was greater than the sum of the parts? nope.. they've just played in their bedroom or played pub gigs.. being part of and contributing to a hugely influential band be it also producing and writing whilst also mesmerising audiences is something that few do.. jason had every right to play his father's drum parts however he saw fit in a way that allowed himself to be comfortable also.. it's understandable from a purists view that there may be shock value when talking 'bonham and bass drum' but i don't think anyone could ever really expect a clone of the great j.b. and all that it would encompass.
  11. the original version of pompei for me.. so i'd say the vhs! i won't go into general zep/floyd chat as this isn't really the question here
  12. my guess is... it was just a laugh! much like geddy lee's 'tumble dryer' instead of an amp set-up.. unless.. any of the zep-sperts here know any different? would be interesting to find out.. but i doubt it was wired into a socket.
  13. ok.. i'll post my funny but 'i understand if you don't believe it' story... a couple of years ago i walked into my local (at the time) greengrocer's and waited behind the only other customer in there. saw the hair... then the 'mystical' ring on finger etc... NO WAY...! he had a £10 note out waiting to pay for bananas and then i knew.. as i heard him chatting away to the grocer, obviously someone he had talked to before.. it was regarding wolverhampton wanderers and he refered to paul ince, who i believe at the time was coming to the end of his career (footy fans!) so obviously i'm standing behind robert plant in a fresh fruit and vegetable shop and just clammed up completely.. i mean it was way too surreal!! my only consolation in retrospect was that he did turn around and gave me a glance at one stage (and then turned back again quickly) so i can say that robert has seen me in the flesh.. ha ha! i found out while i was living there that there's a famous recording studio located around the area too (i found it but had to look hard) so maybe if he didn't live there he was recording and knew the local shop keepers already.. i ran back to my flat (mushrooms in bag!) and just burst out laughing.. my wife came running in and i told her.. i think she believes me but she's the only one.. the story sounds like bulls++t i know but i thought i'd post anyway as i saw this thread and am one of those people who had the chance but... just didn't take it btw.. incase anyone else 'in the know' can clarify.. the area was primrose hill in london.
  14. and add extra notes to the intro so the bar is lengthened jarringly. i like it when you do that..
