  1. Since I have been "nitpicking" Celebration day by seeing it in the theater 4 times, I've noticed just small little things that really add to the enjoyment of the concert for me. So, I thought I would start a thread where other fans could share little things the members have done in concert that really struck them as "cool". So, let me kick this thing off here. The Knebworth concert from the Led Zeppelin dvd, I just love it when Robert says "Oh Jimmy"...."Oh Jimmy" right before he launches into his solo for Nobody's Fault But Mine. I always thought that was really cool. I would have loved it if he had done it for Celebration Day.
  2. One small issue I have with the editing. During "Good Time Bad Times", the start of the second chorus isn't sung by Robert. I went back and looked at the fan shot stuff and realized he was holding out the microphone to the crowd encouraging them to sing. But since Cartuthers didn't edit the film to show that, if you didn't know better, you would think Robert forgot to sing or his microphone went out or something. Otherwise, Iike the people said earier in this thread, Jones'ys boots playing the bass pedals, and just the smiles and grins everyone flashes are very memorable for me. I also love when Jason gets down from the drums after Kashmir and Jimmy rubs his head. He looks like he's very close to tears at that point. You can just tell the three of them were blown away by him the whole evening.
  3. I'm a lucky man today! The final showings of "Celebration Day" in the whole state of Texas happen tonight in Dallas just a few miles from my house. I'm attending both the 7:00 and 9:30 showings. I figured since it was the last time it would ever be shown in theaters, I would "go big or go home". So I bought tickets for both. P.S.: Another theater near me is showing a series of concert films this month, and "The Song Remains The Same" is showing in a couple of weeks.
  4. My problem with this situation is he made it sound like he didn't want to tour becasuse he wasn't going to be touring with anyone for the next couple of years. If he doesn't want to do Zeppelin, while disappointed, I dont' have any problem with that. The problem I do have is not just coming out and saying so. Robert doesn't owe the fans a Zeppelin reunion, but I think he does owe them the truth. If he doesn't want to be in Zeppelin again, just say it. I think it would save everyone a lot of hassles. p.s.: Earlier in the year he used touring without a new album as the reason he wouldn't be rejoining the band. Something along the lines of "an endless parade of repitition" wasn't for him. Well Jimmy and Jonesy were up for recording a new album before any tour, then it's the statement from Robert about not touring with anyone for the next two years. He used touring without new music as an excuse, then he used the not touring with anyone for two years as his latest reason for not doing it. It was Robert's idea to reform Zeppelin for the Ertegun tribute. It went from being a few songs to being a whole concert. He had to agree to that. It's basically come down to Robert and only Robert gets to decide if and when and what form Led Zeppelin exists.
  5. We had an official press release a few weeks ago where Robert states that he won't be touring with anyone for the next 2 years. Then a couple of weeks ago, he states in an interview that he is going into the studio in January to record the follow up to "Raising Sand". Now I don't think it will take them two years to record the album, so the million dollar question is, will they tour together after it's release in support of it? I have a really hard time believing they wouldn't. The vibe I got from the press release was that Robert was taking a two year extended vacation. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
  6. This may be another reason he's so upset with Zep. I remember reading an interview with Ginger Baker a few months ago where he states that Cream were going to a few songs at the 02 tribute show, but then bowed out when Zeppelin decided to do a whole set. And to a prior question, yes Clapton decided he was through with the Cream reunion when Jack Bruce turned into Mr Hyde on stage in New York. Ginger claims that Bruce yelled at him onstage in front of thousands, and then tried to deafen him by cranking his bass up. After the first night, Ginger claimed that Jack killed the magic and the next two nights were nothing more than a "lets get through the shows and get out of here" kind of thing. It was then that Clapton decided that Bruce and Baker would never get along and he didn't need anymore of it. I've read several interviews with all three since that last Garden show, and Jack is the only one who ever states that they will being doing something again in the future. Clapton and Baker consistently say it's over. Jack Bruce is a jerk.
  7. Ladies and gents, personally i'm losing interest in the whole thing very quickly. While I would enjoy seeing Page and Jones working together again, I don't see how any of this can work without Robert unless a new album with a new singer and a new band name happens first. And even then, for me, it would seem like a poor subsitute for what we all wanted to happen (Page and Jones included). And while I love Jason's attitude and playing, again personally, I would feel another drummer needs to be in the chair because in my mind he's been offically linked to "Led Zeppelin" through the 02 show. I would consider this much more legitimate if it were Jones, Page, a new singer, a new drummer, and a new album released before any tour. Also, I want to fly the idea that maybe nothing at all will happen now that Plant has shot them down. That maybe all of the rehearsing with another singer was to call his bluff, and now that Plant isn't on board, the idea of continuing on is dead. Maybe that's why we haven't heard a thing from the other three. And at the end of they day, I still don't think Jimmy will do anything that will damage Led Zeppelin's legacy. Of course, I could be wrong.....LOL.
  8. I'm sure this subject was discussed months ago when the remastered "The Song Remains the Same" was released months ago, but I just had to get this off my chest. I finally got a new cd storage system and was putting all of my compact discs into it when I came across the above mentioned title. Jimmy cut the solo to "No Quarter" because he wanted the soundtrack to more closely match the film, yet, he added songs to the soundtrack that weren't in the movie. Jimmy is a genius as far as I'm concerned, but I don't follow his thinking on this one. The soundtrack would have been perfect to me if he had remastered the original as is, and added the extra songs. But he's the man and I'm not.
  9. I read a review of the show that is mentioned in this topic and nowhere does the reviewer mention that Paul Stanley said "we're going to play some real rock and roll tonight". He does state that Paul did stay "Not tonight". So, someone is trying to stir the pot around here because being a big fan of both Zeppelin and Kiss (imgagine that!), I can promise you that Bonham, Jones, Page, and Plant are nothing but idols to anyone and everyone who has ever been in Kiss. I have read interviews with both Paul and Gene where they recall very fond memories of going to the Garden in 1973 to see Zeppelin when they were starting Kiss
  10. I was listening to the Led Zeppelin channel on my XM radio this morning, and an announcement comes on stating that as of March 7, the channel will be on "hiatus". The announcement also states that the Led Zeppelin channel will return later in the year. Now, seeing as how the channel was launched during the build up of the 02 reunion show, could XM be telegraphing that they will be bringing the channel back during a time of excitement concerning Zep in the fall? HMMMMMMMMMMMM!
