  1. Thanks for the thoughtful and insightful replies on this topic. I also thought that the show got better after the first two songs, but I did not know all the reasons for it. No Quarter, yes, yes, In My Time of Dying.....they absolutely nailed that one, I had goose bumps the very first time I heard it...........YES!!! How about For Your Life....they nailed it!!...I was electrified!! Dazed and Confused---excellent! If you want to get nit-picky---I could have heard the keyboards in the mix a little more prominently on some songs. Overall I am very happy with this recording. I sort of get the criticisms of the video, but since I care a lot more about the audio, I am saying, what the hell! The most controversial thing I can say about this release is that after hearing it, I think Plant is nuts for not wanting to get back with the band and tour. I actually think his singing is better now without the excessive vocal mannerisms. I really love this recording. Peace. Excessive to all, and to all a good night, Fenderguy
  2. I am mystified at the lack of attention this album gets. ALS is my favorite all time LZ song. There is some great energy on all the tracks, and I think the longest songs are also the best ones. This album rocks! Apart from P.G. and L.Z. 4, this is my favorite release.

    Bad Economy? Not For Bourbon Makers WLEX-TV updated 9:44 a.m. CT, Thurs., July. 3, 2008 LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - To Wild Turkey master distiller Jimmy Russell, the piercing sounds of a warehouse rising in the Kentucky countryside are the sounds of prosperity. "As long as you see work going on - and the construction, and increasing your size - you know your business is doing well," said Russell, who started working for the bourbon maker in 1954. Distillers are expanding their bourbon production and storage and dispatching sales teams around the world, bullish for a traditionally Southern beverage gaining popularity worldwide. Surging exports, the weak U.S. dollar and rising popularity among younger Americans are driving the boom. "It's an exciting time to be in the bourbon business," said Max L. Shapira, president of Heaven Hill Distilleries Inc., a family-owned liquor company based in Bardstown. "Most of the time that I've been in the business - up until about the last 10 years - everybody was trying to consign the bourbon category to that great liquor store in the sky." Heaven Hill recently spent nearly $4 million boosting capacity 50 percent at its distillery in Louisville, where it makes Evan Williams and Elijah Craig bourbons. Wild Turkey, part of beverage company Pernod Ricard SA, based in France, sold more than 1 million cases worldwide last year for the first time. Its $36 million expansion near Lawrenceburg will nearly double its production. The distillery at Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey in Lynchburg, Tenn., is about to undergo a nearly $6 million addition to install nine more fermenters. Maker's Mark is preparing for a second expansion. And Jim Beam, the world's biggest bourbon maker, is in the midst of a $70 million expansion in Kentucky. Beam and Maker's are part of Fortune Brands Inc.
  4. Dear Auntie; I am going to be turning 50 years old in a few days. This has been tough for me to deal with, but I guess being old beats the hell out of being dead. I have a question. On my birthday should I browse the internet looking for gravestones or get blitzed downtown and spend money on strippers? Yours truly, Clueless in Coon Rapids
  5. Nice post. Thanks.
  6. A lot of people drink to excess, get rowdy and do really stupid things with fireworks.
  7. There really are many different ways that a woman can be attractive. I happen to like all those different ways. Here's the love of my life, Linda Oneil in three different pictures: Here she is looking like the very beautiful "girl next door", a real sight for sore eyes. I would love go the the beach with her. Yeowwwwwwww! Then after the beach, the start of a hot evening.
  8. I think I look really good in that bathing suit!!
  9. Wow---Good choices for this thread!! I can't tell which one I like the best. I need more pictures of each one of these women to make things more, uh, conclusive....uh, ..that's right, conclusive.
  10. You got your facts mixed up and you keep repeating the same misinformation. Took care of business? Yes, he did. There was a budget deficit that was turned into a surplus during his administration. Under eight years of the Bush administration the opposite has occured. Now thanks to those fiscally responsible Republicans we are many many billions of dollars in debt. Plus I hate to break this to you, but in September of 2001 President Bush was in office, not Bill Clinton.
  11. With George W. in office for eight years to show everyone how tough we are, he still has not managed to get Bin Laden. Starting a war under false pretenses, and then lying about it to the American public and the international community did not exactly endear us to any more moderate regimes around the globe. Where are all those weapons of mass destruction we went there to find? Oops, oh well I guess better luck next time if there is a next time. Bush has tunnel vision to the max and that is not a good trait for a leader in a democracy. Of course, that tunnel vision did not prevent Cheney and his Haliburton cronies from reaping obscene profits from that ridiculous conflict. Get a clue. Bush's popularity isn't waning because it is trendy. It is because he is a blockhead.
  12. All kidding aside, in magazines like Creem and Circus, the fans used to have serious debates over which was the better band, Kiss or Led Zeppelin. That is how it really was. I don't hate Kiss, but I never bothered to buy any of their stuff.
  13. Are you playing those guitars through the same amp, or possibly your own amp when you shop around? For 1300 dollars I would make damn sure the guitar sounds good through whatever amp you intend to use. When I went shopping for amps a few years ago I tried out a brand new amp and a used model that should have sounded exactly the same. The used amp sounded better. If possible use the same amp you intend to play the guitar through. That being said I think I would play it unplugged before I did anything else.
  14. Nice story indeed. Rock on!! Thanks for the article.
  15. Probably, but we didn't feel like it after that.
  16. Here's a good one I am willing to share: A long time ago my girlfriend at the time and I found a really good place to go parking and have passionate sex. The last time we parked there was the most memorable. We had gotten into a fight over something stupid, and were making up with each other. I drove us to the usual spot. After about 10 minutes of parking there in the most intimate of all possible situations I looked up and saw a flashlight shining in the car window. We hurried to cover ourselves with the loose articles of clothing that were laying on the floor of the car. It was a cop. There could be no doubt what we had been doing. He said to us, " I just have one question for you, young lady." "Are you here on your own free will?" "Yes, I am", she said. "Then have a good evening", he said. I think he knew we were going to leave rather than continue after that!! Yikes!!!!
  17. Meeeeeeeoooooww!!!!!!! You just gotta love women.
  18. I visited my cousin on Periwinkle Way in Sanibel. I remember some of the beaches and thinking, "I could get used to this." I did not make it to Captiva.
  19. Yeah, it is obvious they have a definite chemistry. The first time I heard about the two of them collaborating I thought they might have been kidding! If they come to my town I am going to see them. I would rather see a Zep reunion, of course, but then it would be nice if I had a million dollars in the bank too...............
  20. Sanibel Island, near Fort Meyers, Florida? I have a second cousin that lives there. I visited there once.
  21. There was no wind on that day so it was in the upper 70's Fahrenheit a block inland and about twenty degrees colder over the water.
  22. The incredible vibe from the crowd, and the band feeding off of it was trancendent. It was the saving grace of the performance, which certainly was technically ragged. It was almost good in spite of itself.
  23. I hope you guys like these also.
