Best and worst tribute bands...

Hi Led Heads- I am the drummer for Mothership-THE Led Zeppelin Tribute Band. There is a band with the name Mothership in Canada( and I think Italy) but we're in Delaware, USA. I saw someone post on here about wanting to see a band that goes for the live versions. I put the band together with that exact frame of mind. My philosophy was pretty simple...Led Zeppelin didn't play like the record live, why should we? We go for the live "feel". The whole 'tight but loose' theory and it's been really successful. Plus, I'd be bored stiff playing the LP versions note for note every single time. I CAN do it but it takes all the fun out of it IMO. I'd like to try and get some videos up but there aren't many so I'll have to look around. In my opinion, NO ONE nails the record versions like GTLO! I've jammed with Paul Hammond and Billy Childs from GTLO on a couple of occasions and it was stellar! They are great guys and amazing players! Like GTLO, we do not go for a "look". When I see the band Kashmir's clip in this thread, I can't get past the blonde hooker wig or the fact that he doesn't sound like Plant any more than Jim Nabors would. I don't think the look or dressing up lends anything to the performance. I mean, a band could absolutely BLOW playing the music but look good doing it? Nah, I'll pass. LOL Anyway, those are my thoughts.

I absolutely love GTLO!! I’ve seen them over 35 times and will continue to see them each and every time I can! They play a lot here in their home state...So Living in Pennsylvania has its perks I guess. Haha. 
They absolutely kill it! they’re all so friendly and down to earth people. They take the time to get to know their fans and know me and my husband by name. We don’t do the meet and greet every time but we we can we squeeze it in! I always make sure to snag a set list and get it signed. 
there’s a few songs they don’t play... (which is a a totally bummer) but I’m still holding onto hope they’ll learn I’m gonna crawl! I’d love to heard Paul S. On that song! 
I have hundreds of pics and video of them if anyone is interested!
