  1. It could be that Plant said that but his first solo album is not too mellow, even has a few pretty heavy rockers.
  2. Interesting thought about them going into a longer hiatus after Karac's death. In hindsight, it surely was the move they should have made. But it was a relatively turbulent time for Classic Rock bands around 1980. They were already being labelled a Dinosaur and to further retreat from the public may have been considered a career suicide. There would have been a new generation of "competition" with the Metal bands and Hair bands gaining in popularity. Could they have survived and thrived in this new environment. Not sure if the 1980 version as we know it could have. If indeed they could have sobered up and get their chops back, then it would certainly would have been interesting to see how they approached the new metal and hair band scene. A thorough and honest interview with the surviving members would perhaps shed some light onto what their attitude and direction in the 80's would have been. I don't recall ever reading anything in depth about this. Of course, they probably have no clue to what the band would have been beyond the next album, which Jimmy said would have been a more rocking album than ITTOD.
  3. Haven't read through everything, besides some concerts or new live recordings, how about some video's detailing the making of some/all of their albums. Similar to the "Classic Albums" series that have run on TV before. It would be great to hear and see Jimmy behind the mixing board talking about all the different tracks that go into the making of the songs. Just imagine him breaking down the tracks of TYG or ALS.
  4. I'm pretty sure it was Rock and Roll From TSRTS, actually remember watching it. It's hard to imagine the biggest band in the world never appearing live on TV.
  5. Any decent fan of Jimmy has to be frustrated. I look at friends who love Rush, Who, Springsteen, McCartney, Stones etc and I'm totally jealous. They get to see their "bands" play quite often. Say what you want about the bands getting old and all that, but at least the fans are given the opportunity to see these bands. You can choose not to go if you don't want to see them play a sub peak level. As fans of Jimmy/Zeppelin we get the opportunity to get excited about listening to Zep II for the millionth time.
  6. Yes, one show with JPJ in the last 30 years, is a great way to honor the fans faithful support. I just don't think it needs to be so black and white, there could have been room for the occasional show/tour while maintaining his solo career (i.e. Phil Collins).
  7. I wonder if Robert would be willing to do these two shows if he didn't have to spend the next five years defending his position about not participating in a full zeppelin revival. But you would think that a Press Conference where he could tell the world that he's just doing these two shows and then going back to his solo career would put a stop to all the rumors I certainly understand that he has the right to do what he wants assuming there is no real animosity amongst the three remaining members, why the hell not do the shows...at least for your fans who have been supporting you for over 35 years. You have to admit that the Zeppelin fans are probably the most loyal and frustrated fans out there. They (or Robert) are truly unique in their attitude about performing together. I guess we don't count. .
  8. I always thought that a great story/movie should be made about this one week in LA. Obviously, the shows would be a highlight, but a good deal of attention should be given to Millard and the legacy that he created for all of us. There is also a lot of groupie stuff going on as well. The groupie scene was captured really well in Almost Famous. But one part Millard, one part concerts and one part groupie would make for a really interesting book or movie.
  9. Thanks, I used 3-D software.

  10. Love the piece of art work that you did that Jimmy signed for you! Did you do that in oils or something else?
