  1. Unless you were in the booth (if you know what that is since you appear to be an expert) when this song was recorded, you don't know jack shit? A direct quote from Jimmy Page earlier in this thread explains the songs that were altered for speed. TSRTS wasn't one according to the one person who would know and the one person that was there. You are familiar with Jimmy Page and that he produced these records aren't you? So listen up you condescending know it all fucktard. Like everyone who has to provide PROOF of what Zeppelin did or said, why don't you do the same instead of continually insul
  2. If you can prove that by having Jimmy or someone else explain that I will buy it. I don't think they do what you say they do (slow that track down for vocals then speed it up) because Roberts voice sounds normal in the beginning but at the end it is altered up moreso. If they did that, because of Roberts vocals are higher than the beginning, the music would be in a different key at the end and it isn't. Not to mention the bleeding and detuned issues from slowing down then speeding it up. Roberts voice is detuned like a chorus pedal or pitch shifter but the track isn't shifted at all.So for the
  3. I read interviews where Nugent slams Page endlessly. Pretty bold for an intermediate level guitar player at best. I have guitar students who have been playing for a year that can play better than Nugent. But thats Ted. He does the talking with his mouth and Page does it with his fingers.
  4. Hi Steve. Way back in September 1980, through a friend who's father grew up with Donald K Donald, I was lined up for front row seats and I even think an opportunity to meet the band was in place for the October 17 Zep concert at the Forum in Montreal. My same friend had front row seats at Zep's '75 Forum show when he was 10 years old. Said it was the loudest concert ever Listed below are the dates that were scheduled. I know tickets from the Chicago shows are being sold online. Do you know if any other tickets were printed for other cities, or merchandise (programs, t-shirts etc) is floatin
  5. It looks like Bonham getting out with Richard Cole behind him
  6. You may have to give us times and places so we can confirm that. Just kidding
  7. Is there any information on the stage monitors used by Zeppelin anywhere? This would be quite facinating since we could see who listened to what and maybe why. And Cactus I hear what your saying. And speculation it is for sure, however I think more bass would make more sense since the drums always cut through everything and especially since Bonham wasn't exactly using brushes when he played. Page probably wanted to hear Plant upfront also. Who knows. I certainly would like to find out.
  8. I understand and I was refering specifically about the monitor mixes as well. That would be an excellent topic though, that being how the band prefered their onstage setup. Page speaks volumes about studio techniques but rarely regarding the actual gig specs in terms of sound.
  9. Not to be nit picking here but, after many hundreds of gigs, 9 1/2 times out of 10 it is the bass that get's lost before the drums and also Page probably would want to hear the changes Jones was playing moreso than what Bonham did, aside from the regular quese. And besides, I don't think Page had a problem hearing Bonham.
  10. Jimmy Page would use the alias James McGregor. Did he use other aliases and what were they? Did any of the other members use an alias?
  11. I'll look for exactly what Page said regarding this tune. I have it somewhere. Until then, here is some evidence to suggest the tape wasn't sped up. I have never read 'evidence' that the tape was sped up before. Guitar World 1993 - GW: "Houses" is so bright-sounding. Did you vari-speed the tape up a notch to get everything to sparkle more?? Page: No, the only song I can think of that we vari-speeded up were a couple of overdubs on "Achilles Last Stand". However, I applied the vari-speed to the overall track of "No Quarter". I dropped the whole song a quarter
  12. Not sure, but will check my references, but I remember reading that no effects were put on Robert's voice and that surprised me because I always thought something was on it. I'll check and get back.
  13. I've seen photos in which various members of Zep were wearing tour jackets ie,,..North America Tour 1975. Who were issued these jackets besides the band? Roadies, record execs,..were they given away by radio stations etc? Just curious.
  14. Just stopped by this store today to pick up some strings. Didn't realize the fuss until I got closer. Only 25 in the world. Very nice guitar http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/news/c...63-916de11a99ee
  15. John Bonham allegedly walked on stage at Nassau Coliseum pissed up while Deep Purple were playing, grabbed a microphone and said they were shit and so was Tommy Bolin. Then got beat up backstage, then sent away in a car. Allegedly
  16. Elton John puts on a great show, one of the best I've seen. Eric Clapton puts on a great show as does Peter Frampton. Motley Crue and Nirvana. Good Lord. Even Bon Jovi comes before those posers
  17. You can also see JPJ on youtube with Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone, Paul Gilbert (Extreme,Mr.big) and Steve Hackett. They do a killer version of Communication Breakdown with Nuno Bettencourt holding his own on drums!!! Going to California as well(JPJ and Gilbert). Think they do tangerine to but can't remember
  18. Sounds like he changed positions on his toggle switch as he was glissandoing with his left hand. That's how I play it. Could be the sensitivity to the slide as well. Or whatever pedal, if he steps on an effects pedal there. Or could be overdub. I think it's the toggle switch going from the rhythm to treble positions assuming Page is playing a Les Paul
  19. And God had call display. Sorry, not a fan of Warhol
  20. I've seen both Page and Plant perform seperately as well as together and to be honest, even though they are my favourite band, I would have to think long and hard to see them elsewhere if they didn't play my city. It would be great to see them, but if it doesn't happen it is no big deal. As much as I still get into Zep some 30+ years later, my life will not be filled with regret. Shelling out 100's of dollars to me just isn't worth it. Front row maybe. In the nosebleeds, forget it. My priorities have changed. A friend once paid $1500 for a McCartney ticket. I wouldn't have. If they to
