strutter806 Posted April 4, 2014 Share Posted April 4, 2014 After the crash, around '81-'83, there was hype about what band was gonna be the "second coming" of Zep. I know a lot of you 40 and up fans out there remember this. It was mainly Circus and Hit Parader mags that hyped this stuff up big time. I distinctly remember Def Leppard as a contender. Nowhere close now. They had a similar guitar sound and thudish drum beats but thats it. What about Fastway? Another 2nd coming contender, similar guitar sound and production, singer emulated Plant pretty fairly. Songs all sounded the same though. Bands that "sound like Zeppelin" usually write their songs sounding all alike which is un-Zep from the start. The song remains the same not the song sounds the same! Who else has memories of the "new-Zep" era when bands were trying to scoop that glory? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
