    My interests are mainly guitar and music (I'm a music nerd). I'm very influenced by Paul Kossoff (Free), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin like most of you know), Jimi Hendrix (The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Band of Gypsyes), Duane Allman (The Allman Brothers Band), Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow) and Amund Maarud (The Grand) (+ Tommy Bolin (Zephyr, Deep Purple, James Gang)). <br /><br />I also play football on my sparetime.

    Zeppelin's best album

    My favourite Led Zeppelin album must be Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin I on a close second. I think Led Zeppelin II and I are my favourite's because of the more blues influenced sound.

    The Best year for the rock music?

    I think my favourite year of rock music must be 1971 (Live At The Fillmore East - The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin, Friendship - Junipher Greene just to name a few and many, many more....), 1970 (Fire and Water - Free, Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin, In Rock - Deep Purple +++++++++) or 1967 (Are You Experienced - The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Disreali Gears - Cream, A Hard Road - Bluesbreakers just to name a few good ones).
  8. The Hellacopters is now history, unfortunately. Hope they do a reunion when I get older.

    I've heard about them, and heard some songs, but never seen them live (not always nice to be young ). I have tried to get one or two of their albums, but with no success. I have heard theiy was a pretty good live band in their time. But the band broke up, and later Alex Kloster Jensen, the guitarist of the band, went on to form My Midnight Creeps together with the guitarist of Madrugada, Robert Burås (check My Midnight Creeps out, it's a real good band). Now Alex Kloster Jensen is playing together with Madrugada, instead of Robert (Cato Thomassen is also with him), but after christmas Madrugada is breaking up. They got some few gig's in Norway, before Christmas. And I got a ticket to one of their last show's! I will give you another tip, check out Madrugada .

    Is Led Zeppelin Your Favorite Band?

    They're in my top five.
  11. I thought I could make a thread about the artists/bands you think are underrated. Zephyr Zephyr was a rock/blues band from Denver in the 60/70's. The vocalist, Candy Givens, had an extremly good voice. You can hear she got inspiration from Janis Joplin. The guitarist would later work with band's like Deep Purple and James Gang, Tommy Bolin (I'll think that Tommy Bolin was an underrated guitarist). Unfortunately both Tommy Bolin and Candy Givens would later die of abusing drugs. I would promise you, if you like Led Zeppelin, you like this. Zephyr - Hard Chargin' Woman Zephyr - ...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW9qYRUK0Tc...feature=related Sorry for my bad english.

    Thank you :P. On Topic: Yes, The Hellacopters are an extremly good band, and the musicans are not to bad either. It's a shame that I never have seen them live (not always nice to be young). If I'm not going to count The Hellacopters in, I know of another three extremly good bands that I have to recomend. My Morning Jacket "An American Rock band best known of their heavy-reverb sound, their electic mix of country rock, indie rock, funk, psychedelic, and southern rock styles, and enthusiastic and energetic live shows." My Morning Jacket - The Wat That He Sings My Morning Jacket - One Big Holiday My Morning Jacket - Mahgeeta The Grand A Norwegian blues/rock/psychedelic rock band. The band are inspired of bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin (mainly from the 60/70's), but also new bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Wolfmother and The White Stripes. The band have recorded one album; The Grand - The Grand (try to listen to this Swede, i may think you like it). The Grand - Downhill www.thegrand.no Madrugada Another Norwegian rock band. It's kinda hard to explain their sound, but you can say that they are inspired of bands like The Doors and Pearl Jam (but again I'm not sure, so don't shoot me if I'm wrong). Their guitarist, Robert Burås, died last summer, and they are now planing to break up after Christmas (they have toured with two other guitarist's instead of Robert this year; Alex Kloster Jensen and Cato Thomassen). I also have to say that Sivert Høyem (the vocalist), got an extremly good voice, that few people can compare their self to. Madrugada - Majesty (LISTEN TO THIS!) - Madrugada - The kids are high on the street Madrugada - Black Mambo Another band's worth checking out: The Soulshake Express (a swedish rock band. Inspired of groups like The Black Keys, The Hellacopters...) The Black Keys My Midnight Creeps (Robert Burås played in this group to) Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Sorry for my bad english
  13. Madrugada at Folken (Stavanger) 11. november. Anyone on this forum heard about Madrugada?
  14. Since we got a thread about your favourite guitarist's and singer's, I thought we could make one about your favourite drummers. John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) Mitch Mitchell (The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Dirty Mac) Simon Kirke (Free, Bad Company) Ian Paice (Deep Purple) Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket) Henrik Maarud (The Grand) Don Brewer (Grand Funk Railroad) Ginger Baker (Cream) Kenneth Kapstad (Motorpsycho) Bill Ward (Black Sabbath)
  15. It was on the 18th. sep. The concert was on a school (Gimle skole), and the school's are closed on Sundays.
