  1. I have no problem with Keith or his choices, I do have a problem with anti-drug crusaders misusing his life as an argument tool. I actually do not think what he puts in his mouth is really any of my business. As for the whys of prohibition, marijuana is illegal mainly because of racist tendencies and middle class mommie paranoia, i.e. the parents group movement. The history is clear: The History of the Marijuana Laws http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/History/whiteb1.htm The Forbidden Fruit and the Tree of Knowledge: An Inquiry into the Legal History of American Marijuana Proh
  2. I have come across a jerk or two, and saw it mentioned here once innocently, that Keith Richards has turned totally anti-drug. I always suspected this was not the truth: UK: Keith Richards Admits He Smokes Weed 'All the Time' http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v08/n354/a10.html 27 straight major drug policy studies done over a century recommend decriminalization of marijuana possession. All of them. Yeah, I listen to Zeppelin, and I toke. Crusaders need only monitor their own behavior. If you will not put me in a cage for smoking a joint, I will not advocate cutting off you heads at the
  3. Hmmm, well, I was hoping for feedback concerning the two aforementioned bands, and their relative impact on our world. I seem to have gotten that. It would seem we all agree, with one lone brave dissenter. You see, from what Bryan said to me, I am quite sure he is being a role model for the youts who want to play Nirvana style music. O.k., if you want to feel manic depressive, dance in a mosh pit, and hit strangers hostilly, whom am I to question your entertainment? Too much thantatic destructive energy for me, I agree with Robert, where has all the magic in the world gone? Just for the
  4. Carouselambra. When I voted here years ago that is was my favorite Zeppelin tune, I was amongst two other people who agreed. I think that's funny, last place for my tastes. But, then of couse, I like Ode to Roy Harper, and can even enjoy Living Loving Maid if the mood is right.
  5. I have found a number of people who do not understand why that comparison irks me and I was beginning to wonder that I have been time travelling without knowing it... I am now 40, an old fuddy dud, and maybe I cannot relate to the world any longer, it has left me behind... I am waiting for him to compare Mozart to the Beastie Boys. He did reply to me personally, basically ignoring every objective argument I made, claiming all truth in taste is relative... I suppose I could simply live with that, but then he started analyzing me, proposing I may have a persecution complex for caring about t
  6. Bryan Beller, a bass player and writer, wrote this in the March issue of Bass Player magazine to describe Nirvana: "... the hidden gem of a melody-driven trio in which influences as disparate as the Beatles and Black Flag somehow coexisted to create songs every bit as classic as Led Zeppelin's finest." Well, my blood pressure was raised for about 12 hours. The sword was definitely driven through the spine of the dragon on that wicked morning... Now, I could go for the subjective, but that is a briar patch... on simple objective measures, such as total album sales or who had th
