  1. Have to totally agree!!! I was once called a fanboy as if its an insult! as I disagreed with someones crap. I'm proud to be a fanboy and wear that badge with pride, and have done for almost 50 years. Led Zep produced some of the most incredible music on the planet///lets celebrate that................oh no! lets whinge and complain instead
  2. They'll be going after Mary Poppins next,,,, didnt JPJ mention that this was closer than Spirit....
  3. Heres a few pics that may be of interest....
  4. That would have to be somewhere up there with the best. I think JP achieves in that one track what most guitarists have failed to achieve in a lifetime, and the climax of the violin bow is one of the most incredible moments in music..... but for me it would have to be the studio version of Kashmir, not because it was representative of Zep, but more that it was one of their greatest achievements.
  5. The symbol is not created by JP, it isn't a word, it is made up of three symbols... the Z, the Oso, and the underline attached to the Z. Its a symbol that is made up of Astrological and alchemical correspondences relating to JP's birthsign. Although it is three symbols it has been put together along time ago.... the earliest I have seen is in a table of astrological, alchemical correspondences in a French occult book from the 16th century. Its nothing complicated or mysterious but JP obviously played on the aura and mythology that grew up around the symbols, particularly his. If you think back to when the album came out and how long it was before we had access to the internet, it was very easy to maintain the mystery, and it was practically impossible to look it up. All part of the Zep aura.
  6. Has anyone watched/read Steven Greers videos, books such as 'unacknowledged'. Yes its all the rehashed UFO cases we've all read before BUT instead of 'everyday' witnesses its testimonies from Military personnel, ex-CIA, NSA, air traffic controllers, airline pilots, presidential advisers etc . The video and the book are very convincing and the 'Disclosure' conferences/press briefings etc are very interesting, but they do leave alot of questions open....such as Why hasnt anything more happened since the first conference in 2001. Why havent we got more credible evidence especially in this day and age of mobile phone/videos etc, why hasnt Steven Greer been killed/assassinated. Its very much about a global political, corporate and science conspiracy, news, research, academia is all sanitised before it is released to the public but I can't imagine it being that efficient that 'they' whoever they are manage to keep the lid on all of this.
  7. i can fully appreciate people having different tastes, I can understand Yes fans thinking Jon Anderson is the greatest vocalist of all time, or Genesis fans thinking its Peter Gabriel, or ELP fans thinking its Greg Lake, beacuse they were amazing unique vocalists but I'm just coming to terms with the fact that Freddie Mercury possibly is not a forum in joke and that some people here are serious...OMG!!!! HAHA!! I dont know whether to laugh or cry.
  8. Maybe its because some fanboys join these sites only to find so called Zeppelin fans that are totally clueless.
  9. Elvis is one of the biggest stars of all time, so is Frank Sinatra, but I could never rate them alongside what Robert Plant did, no where near, and Freddie Mercury?? surely this is a joke? Some forum in joke that I'm not in on?
  10. WOW!!!! I never expected to find so much utter BS on a Led Zep site. Seriously people go get your hearing tested! or go and stick to pop music! Freddie Mercury??!!! come on people is this a comedy site? Elvis was an amazing phenomenon there was just nothing around like him at the time, but sorry folks he isnt Robert Plant, and I've yet to hear anyone that even approaches him. Just listen to Zep 4.... listen to his vocals on 4 sticks and then the next track Going to California..... most vocalists dont achieve that differenc in style, pitch, timbre, delivery, inflection, emotion in their whole career, and thats without even going into the realms of Kashmir, SIBLY, etc etc. Plant may have had a dramatic change from72 - 73 but what he sang on the bootlegs of 73 is just so far ahead of anyone on the planet before or after. He was always more than a vocalist he was the fourth instrument in the band. He could vocalise emotions that we dont even have names for.
  11. Yes! I remember the joys of the 3 day week, the power cuts, the dustbin mens strike!.......no central heating, no fridge!
  12. Yes she loved it, we were both Zep fans from quite an early age, she would have been 19 at the time, and we'd been fans since Zep 2 came out. In fact its still one of the things we talk about now, and our kids go 'Oh they're off again!'. When its that loud you don't notice bum notes, and especially with how much their music changes night after night if you did hear anything amiss you'd assume that it was just another version. I think at the time they could have played everything wrong and it would still have sounded amazing!! The screen was great as you could see their expressions or fingerwork but I kept looking from stage to screen and back. Yes I've seen that scarf! They were selling allkinds of unofficial crap outside Earls Court, I cant believe how anyone could be so stupid as to buy a scarf with a misspelling!
