  1. Its an interesting subject. "progressive" can be taken in different contexts. As a music genre, there are definately aspects to some of LZ's songs one could describe as progressive, even at just a superficial level - Immigrant Song, Battle for Evermore, NQ, Achilles, all IMO would have a progressive angle to them (even if they are under a hard rock umbrella). You can hear it in the musical composition, and in the lyrical content as well. Theres a lot of known, grounded material in Plants lyrical ideas, but there are also quite a bit of abstract and deeper concepts as well (sometimes si
  2. 03/21/75 Seattle - faster timing, granted, but amazing! I never get tired of this version
  3. loving this thread and taking notes - id love to get some of these versions!
  4. evocative... perilous southern charm - subversive indeed well done!
  5. its nice to see threads like this on this site! Virginia, your tomato portraits remind me of the south, and all the warm fuzzy memories that go along with that. Was that theme intentional, or am I just picking up what you are just naturally expressing? Either way, THANK YOU xox
  6. nothing more than a mixtape challenge ive done this to my favorite live Zep song - NQ
  7. mine too. watching him pull guitars from the stash at his place was cool as well. I left the movie wanting more of the three of them actually playing though...
  8. One of the fun memories of the 70's thats for sure - midnight movies. Berating the wasted chicks who would insist on getting up in front of the screen and dance through the songs... "who called me a bitch?? - f-you!!..." tee hee I remember Rocky Horror... barely. What about that Rock Supershow where you saw that early Zep doing D&C? I thought Jimmy looked freaking cool in that leather jacket and strat. Then the next day the theatre played Godzilla movies with that Sensurround. Great way to cure that hangover Awsome
  9. It was an odd feeling seeing him out there. Good to see him play (but he wasnt), glad he is enjoying his well earned due, but strange seeing Zep being commercialized a little. Just because that for decades, that was their deal - not to be doing the cheese like that. Didnt say he was selling out, but it is a little difficult to adjust to the new post-Zep world Jimmy is living in, thats all. As for Lewis being manufactured - well she won a talent contest, and reaped the benefits of that contest. Sure she is talented vocally, but cmon - she won a contest, had a bunch of other more talent
  10. well put, Evster. Thunderthief was impressive. Imagine Page putting his stuff on some of those tracks. Jones can solo on the bass like no one's biznezz
  11. I dont want to cause no fuss, but I too am a Who fan, and have been a member of their site, and haven't encountered anything remote to what your claiming. In fact, I think that it is by far the best fansite of any of the mega groups out there. To wit - 1). Dunno about the free trade market laws. Perhaps people were selling them above market value (which would be the cost of joining)? Outstanding double CD, BTW. "Not sold in stores" probably means different things to different people... 2). On the older site, Pete was in the process of writing an autobiography, and requested opin
  12. We are going, and are starting to get excited about it! Not thrilled with any of the tribute bands, but being an Okie, we are looking forward to the Lips playing on some Who. Last I heard, The Who will be playing at least a 45 minute set at the end, so... WOOT! Anyone else out there going? It's too bad that the scheduling or circumstances always precludes the bands one would really want to see. Aerosmith, Heart (Anne can do a crazy Love Reign), or even a punk style band like Greenday would rock on Who material.
  13. Well, are there any Zep heads other than me going? Who Not particularly thrilled about the guest bands, but being a fellow Okie, I am partial to The Flaming Lips.
