  1. Where is Ian Gillan and Ronnie James Dio?
  2. R.I.P Mitch. One of the greatest rock 'n' roll drummers. He could realy drum! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiMu_ZSbKn4 Mitch Mitchell drum solo. Maybe one of the greatest drum solo's I ever heard. R.I.P
  3. 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.
  4. The albums I'm using my sparetime on nowadays are: In Rock - Deep Purple Machine Head - Deep Purple Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin
  5. 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).
  6. The Hellacopters is now history, unfortunately. Hope they do a reunion when I get older.
  7. 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 .
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Madrugada at Folken (Stavanger) 11. november. Anyone on this forum heard about Madrugada?
  11. 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)
  12. It was on the 18th. sep. The concert was on a school (Gimle skole), and the school's are closed on Sundays.
  13. Did ever Led Zeppelin, then under the name The New Yardbirds, play in Norway one month before they changed their name into Led Zeppelin? I think that it maybe could be true, after the arcticle I saw. "Revolver" is a book that have listed all the great gigs by the great bands that have been played in Norway. There it stands two gigs under the name Led Zeppelin, then The New Yardbrids, of course, that they played one concert in Bergen (Gimle skole/school) 22. September 1968 and one in Oslo (Manglerudklubben) 23. September 1968. Robert Plant also confess that he played a gig at least in Oslo (with Page, Jones and Bonham), and many people mean that they saw them there as a bluesband. But some rockexpert’s also mean that they may are mixing it with the Yardbirds concert in Norway one year before. One pupil at Gimle skole (school) confess that he do remember one british-bluesband at the concert (Gimle skole), but he didn’t notice them to mutch. The book to Ander Bakke, and some websites mean that The New Yardbirds played one gig in Bergen, but the strange thing was that the 22th. September was a Sunday. But after all this could be possible. The Led Zeppelin specialist and writer, Dave Lewis, have also confirmed the dates in his book “The Concert Files.” He also have added an extrra gig that should have taken place in Oslo the 24. sep. But he is not to sure, and writes: ”Verification of these initial gigs have been very difficult to obtain.” But before they changed their name to Led Zeppelin, they based their setlist on old bluessongs. But altough Robert Plant, Dave Lewis and some pupils at Gimle shcool mean that this is true, Alan Clayson the writer of the most exact book about the Yardbirds, means something quite different. The book contains a complete calender about the Yardbirds, including everything that the new line-up of The Yardbirds had done to 31. okt 1968. On the 18th. September it stands that the group had returned to England to record their first LP. So after her opinion the last concert of eight concerts in Scandinavia should have been played in Liseberg in Gøteborg in Denmark, and Clayson says: ”further Scandinavian dates after this are unconfirmed and unlikely”. So after Clayson’s opinion, she thinks that the New Yardbirds couldn’t have been playing in Norway on the dates 22-24. sep. In the another book written by Nigel Williamson, named: ”The Rough Guide to Led Zeppelin”, it stands: “returned to Britain on 18 September.” But confusing enough it also stands that they didn’t begin to record before the 27. sep. That means that the band could have been in Scandinavia two times, only interrupted by a bandpractice in England. So after all, Robert Plant could remember right. After all I think it's possible that they could have been playing two or three gigs in Norway. http://www.nrk.no/musikk/1.4434990 this is the link to the real article, but it is written in Norwegian, so I have tried to translate it into English (I'm not to good in English, but I have tried, and hope it counts).
  14. It's to hard to only choose ten songs, but I made a list of the songs I have listen to most of my sparetime through this week: Free - Mr Big The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Red House Led Zeppelin - Ramble On The Allman Brothers Band - One Way Out Cream - Crossroads Deep Purple - Lazy Deep Purple - Highway Star Junipher Greene - Take A Road Across the Bridge Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times Free - Fire and Water Deep Purple - Fireball Led Zeppelin - You Shook Me The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Voodoo Chile (not Slight Return) Cream - Born Under A Bad Sign The Hellacopters - No Song Unheard Grand Funk Railroad - We're an a American Band Grand Funk Railroad - Inside Looking Out Deep Purple - Burn The Allman Brothers Band - Whipping Post The Hellacopters - Crimson Ballroom But this list would maybe change tomorrow or in a week, so I can't just rank ten favourite songs.
  15. Jimi Hendrix is after my opinion the greatest guitarist to have lived on this earth. No one have inspired so many guitarplayers to this day. I think that almost every guitarist are inspired by Hendrix, either direct or indirect (at least almost every rock guitarist and blues guitarist). IMO I think that "Are you experienced?" is maybe the greatest debut-album of all time.
  16. I don't know if I have posted any post's in this thread before, but IMO I think together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple was one of the greatest bands of the 70's (especially MKII). Made in Japan and Machine Head are two of my favourite albums.
  17. My favourite must be the studio-version of "You Shook Me" on Led Zeppelin I.
  18. Bought three vinyl's for some days ago: Cream - Fresh Cream Free - Fire and Water Free - Free Live
  19. The Allman Brothers Band - In Memory of Elizabeth Reed
  20. Would you support Led Zeppelin including some of their songs in a video game like Guitar Hero or Rock band? No, because imo I think it's better to play a real instrument, instead of playing a comptuergame-instrument. Do you consider yourself a part of video gaming culture? No, I'm no gamer. Do you enjoy playing either Rock Band or Guitar hero? No, tried it twice. Don't like it. Got enough with my own guitar . Which would you choose if you could only have one or the other? I would choose a Led Zeppelin reunion tour... of course! How old are you? 14 Sorry for my bad english..
