  1. Hey Friends....got myself a new group, check them out if you will! https://www.facebook.com/namedbythesun/
  2. I was amazed at this "scholarly" article, which to me seems like a long paranoid rant about how Plant based his vocal style and his manner of dress on Janis Joplin: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/enhanced/doi/10.1111/jpms.12081/ What I take away from it is that Plant admired Janis and may have developed his hippie stage presence based on her personal style, but the fact is both of them based aspects of their vocal styles on the blues and Plant's voice is so different from Janis' that I find them hard to compare to each other. Plant's voice is often ethereal, and I find Janis Joplin's voice to be grating. imo this type of writing is what gives feminism a bad name these days. I also don't find the article to be actually scholarly as it uses circumstantial evidence to try to show Plant somehow ripped off Joplin when we all know you can't copyright singing styles. What I believe the article does illustrate is the complete lack of imagination of rock journalists of the 70s in that the best way they could describe Plant was comparing him to Janis. That's not relevant to what Plant did nor to the history of Led Zeppelin. I found the article to be reminiscent of paranoid conspiracy theory writing. The sad state of academia today!
  3. does anyone have any info on the sessions for Led Zeppelin III that yielded "hats off to roy harper" "key to the highway/trouble in mind (rough mix)" & "feels so bad/fixin to die"? are there any more recordings from this session? it sounds like they were all done in the same session given the tremolo effect on robert's voice and jimmy's old-school bluesy acoustic guitar. i'm curious to see what other tracks may have been laid down in this style, or when/where these were done. anybody got anything?

Eddie Cochran C'mon Everybody I am looking for rock groups that are also doing the blues with a rock mix. I have also found that much of ZZ Top's albums were also awesome blues riffs. Can you guys give me other great modern blues / rock mix groups that do it as good, or as close to Zeppelin/ZZ Top good as you can get? Thanks guys!
  5. If Your a Zeppelin fan and love bands that are simular. I would recommend this band too everyone. Amazing sound and band from LA. Website Facebook YouTube SoundCloud
  6. As David Grohl stated Led Zeppelin “helped establish hard-rock, folk-rock, blues-rock, heavy metal, and possibly even helped influence psychedelic and punk-rock”. Of course there are other genres that Led Zeppelin has influenced, some of which would be nonexistant without Zeppelin. But what are some genres that Zeppelin hasn't really influenced?
