if Jimmy renames the band, what would be a good name?

Recommended Posts

As I & a Hell of alot of people who saw them Last Year... CAN say it works, as it was a Fucking Excellent Show, so well done to them & all Concerned...

Hang-man :ph34r:

yes I saw them too in Toronto. individually they are already exceptional, powerhouses; world class and classy. put them together and wow... the synergy was electric! I couldn't have been more thrilled to be in the 5th row.

one friend commented that it was a beautiful love story on stage like Beauty and The Beast...

the movie where Belle, whose father Maurice is imprisoned by the Beast (really an enchanted Prince...(that would be Robert), offers herself instead and finds the prince inside the Beast. I thought it was a lovely analogy. :P

I just meant that yes Reid is a singer (not a drummer) and he has his own style, tastes and diversification in music. along with that he has his own practiced musicians. if he were to take to the stage, he might have his own drummer (or other musician(s) perform with him for his songs along with Jimmy and JP.

or maybe not... I know Jimmy, JP and Jason would handle everything adeptly and might get a kick out of it. :)

too bad there seems to be a rift between Jimmy and Terry. time to let bygones be bygones and get on with the entertainment! it would be fun! we miss them.

Ah, ok. Gotcha! Misunderstood. :D

He *must* rename the band...Zeppelin died when Bonham did (I feel the same way about The Who when Moon died)...

Or maybe it was a strong belief that if you play with fire you will get burnt!

I've heard people claiming to be "occultists" make such statements about "dabblers"

Would be interesting to find out though.

Yeah, that's kind of what I meant. But it's something Terry says more than a decade later, and it can be hard to figure out sometimes where such statements are exactly coming from. Was he being honest at all? Does the statement perhaps reflect Terry's later thinking more than what he thought at the time, in 1968? And so on.

Why changing the name?

Others group change their lead singer, AC/DC, Van Halen ect.

Gun's n roses only original member is Axl Rose so what !

I think that the spirit of Led Zepp is still there with Jmmy, John Paul and Bonham's son sorry for Robert but you miss the train.......

I haven't read all the posts for this topic so this may or may not have come up but I think a good name(s) for this project would be:

DIRIGIBLE

IRON DIRIGIBLE

STEEL DIRIGIBLE

Pb DIRIGIBLE (Pb being the atomic symbol for Lead (Led))

I am sure that 99% of the Led Zeppelin fans know what a DIRIGIBLE is. For those 1% that don't, a dirigible is another name for a Zeppelin.

Terry actually told NME in 1979 that he turned down the offer from Jimmy because of Jimmy's interest in the occult. To paraphrase, he said that he felt Jimmy was a dabbler, the worst kind of level of interest, someone unaware of the powers he was unleashing.

Hmm, 1979? I think he was still living in Oxnard. Rogue Waves time. I don't have that album - whoever has it might be able to help figure it out. What I'm trying to figure out is WTF Terry was smoking at the time (besides tobacco) to have said something like that? :blink:

That's more of a wishful thinking. He doesn't have his own musicians, and never really did. Line-ups have changed. There were some musicians who stayed with him for a while, notably the bassist Lee Miles (who apparently convinced Terry to move to the US) but at the LA gig last November there was a different bassist. I'm afraid to even ask what happened with Lee. Terry and Lee first met at the Stones tour in 1966 - BTW the same tour where Jimmy and Terry also met for the 1st time; that was Jimmy's first impression of the 16 year old SuperLungs. Lee was with the Ike & Tina Turner band at the time. I think I'll ask Keith if Lee (hopefully) is alive and well. The other two (keyboardist and drummer) were also "borrowed" musicians. New Jersey based CAD (Cosmic American Derelicts) is the most consistent band for the East coast and UK gigs, but technically they're not his band either.

too bad there seems to be a rift between Jimmy and Terry. time to let bygones be bygones and get on with the entertainment! it would be fun! we miss them.

I totally missed that about the "rift." When did that happen? :unsure:

hi, thanks for setting me straight and all the info! I just started following Terry's career, music, etc. and I like his voice and alot of his blues, rock, and the different accompaniment sounds his backup musicians play on his cds and on stage. I had never heard of "folk-rock" or "folk-blues" until now when applied to Terry and yes that seems to fit the bill a great deal.

just now, while I was on his MySpace, Facebook, and iLike pages, I invited him to come up to Toronto sometime and that if I introduced him to Kim Mitchell on Q107 classic rock, he should send me front row tickets...

(front row) :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

now that's wishful thinking too hee hee.

re: ok, no rift. (but maybe a riff.. ooo bad joke huh! :slapface:

I heard that way back when, at the time of the offers, Terry was trapped in a scam deal by promoter Mickey Most and was being kept from recording anywhere. when he was influenced to go to California, Graham Nash of The Byrds helped him get out of his deal and able to record again. then I heard that Terry turned down Jimmy to do his own solo act (which may have been a snub). then I heard Terry didn't like Jimmy's occult leanings and I jumped to the conclusion that Jimmy and Terry didn't get on well. now I'm metagrobolized... (dazed and confused) :blink:

why haven't Jimmy and Terry gotten together at some point? it might be historic.

I'd ♥ it!

I think on this tour this should be a definite maybe. or did they already get together and I missed it? :huh:

OK, here's the deal. We all think/hope that our heroes (the musicians we admire) sometimes look at all those websites/forums/what have you and read the messages about them or addressed to them. If in some cases it's true (like Brian May, who's very much in touch with his fans via his Soapbox) it's not true at all about Terry. He's an "analog type guy" and might not even have a computer; all those sites (some of them are indeed official) are maintained by other people who are in touch with him via phones/faxes etc. If you ever want to pass a message to Terry you'd have to go through Paul Bennett (UK rep, Terry's official site), Keith Duncan (fansite/forum) or Chico Rey (current bassist and the most direct contact) Oh, and which front row are you talking about? Which concert? :huh:

I heard that way back when, at the time of the offers, Terry was trapped in a scam deal by promoter Mickey Most and was being kept from recording anywhere.

Not so much scam but the contract was pretty fascist; MM "insisted on Reid recording pop fodder that bordered on the inane and was an insult to his massive vocal talent." (Musiquarium - Unsung Heros) TR was drawn to more serious blues/rock so they were pulling in different directions. It all ended in a blazing row when Terry came back from the tour and discovered his 2nd album has been released despite MM's promise not to do so. Terry told him where to stick the 5-album contract. A truly priceless exchange took place:

MM: "You can't say that!"

TR: "I just did!" It cost him 3 years of litigation and inability to record in the studio.

when he was influenced to go to California, Graham Nash of The Byrds helped him get out of his deal and able to record again. then I heard that Terry turned down Jimmy to do his own solo act (which may have been a snub). then I heard Terry didn't like Jimmy's occult leanings and I jumped to the conclusion that Jimmy and Terry didn't get on well. now I'm metagrobolized... (dazed and confused) :blink:

I don't recall Graham Nash being in The Byrds ... he founded The Hollies and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash (David Crosby was in the Byrds). Graham is actually partially responsible for nudging 18 y-old Terry to sign that ill-fated contract with MM. It was the personal intervention of Ahmet Ertegün that rescued TR from that deal.

As for the "occult rumors" I've yet to see any evidence. Doesn't sound like Terry at all, but you never know. :blink:

why haven't Jimmy and Terry gotten together at some point? it might be historic.

I'd ♥ it!

I think on this tour this should be a definite maybe. or did they already get together and I missed it? :huh:

As far as I know they never got together (in terms of playing/recording). Apparently neither had any interest in collaboration. But - also as far as I know - they're on good terms, both with Jimmy and with Robert. Jimmy attended at least 3 of TR's gigs (Steve A. Jones has the exact dates and times, exact quotes of what they said to each other, which drinks they had, how many cigarettes smoked... LOL just kidding :D ) Terry has a relatively busy gig schedule (January 30 - NYC, Feb 13 - Santa Monica, May - several dates in UK etc.... no mention of Toronto, but, again, you never know...) So it seems they're always going to be "just friends." :D

hi. oh I know, I know... musicians don't frequent these places, but it's still fun to write a post as if you're really addressing the person though they may never see it. I heard that JPJ once dropped in here. on youtube there's a couple of vids by former or present band members so sometimes they get in the act.

re: which concert... any future one that may include Jimmy, JPJ & Jason, and Friends or Terry would be fine with me.

interesting, thanks.

oh stupid me :slapface: of course Graham Nash wasn't in the Byrds.

really?... it was Ahmet who rescued TF from that fate... small world.

"As for the "occult rumors" I've yet to see any evidence. Doesn't sound like Terry at all, but you never know. :blink: "

if I ever meet Terry, I'll ask him point blank, with all due consideration of course, if he said that. if Terry does have an interest in metaphysics then maybe I've found a new friend :)

well I'm glad to hear they'll always be friends. looks like I'll have to rent an RV and go where Terry is to hear him play... maybe in the summer *wishful thinking again* :rolleyes:

I just also 'discovered' Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship fame. I love his former Elvin Bishop song "Fooled Around And Fell In Love". and holy smokes we share the same birthday. maybe he would be a good bet for the band... he's still got the chops.

but please not Steven Tyler though... he's a good singer but not my cup of tea for J, JPJ and Jason.

it just occurred to me that a Jimmy and Friends band would have to come up with new material and a cd if it's to be other than a Led Zep reunion (or even if it was a LZ reunion), and ya gotta admit that Robert was and is an excellent writer, especially metaphorically... that would be sorely missed. perhaps Robert could pen some songs for them even if he didn't tour. :huh:

P.S. forgive me for commenting while inside your quotes... I didn't know how to separate them. :unsure:

if you want to insert your comments after another person's selected passages:

1. find the end of the passage, then type in [ / quote ] (without spaces)

2. type in your comments

3. type in [ quote ] (again, without spaces)

4. if you want to comment on another passage within the same post, repeat steps 1-3

Ah, I keep finding highly amusing stuff about him... like, l didn't know it was actually Peter Grant who told him about that infamous Aretha Franklin quote in New Musical Express in 1968... or Terry leading Bob Harris (of the Old Grey Whistle Test) into his Oxnard house through the window because, umm, the door doesn't open... :o:D

I really like Jimmy's perception of Robert and Terry back in 1968: "Those two are like brothers together..." but this is all so OT... :unsure::bagoverhead:

Seriously, if Jimmy has to pick a name - it wouldn't be renaming, just like it wouldn't be replacing Robert, remember? - he might want to go with something very different, "non-zeppy" sounding.

I was :Thinking:

what if Robert re-joined the band but he renamed it.

why would he do such a heretical thing?!

well for example, what if the new name was just "LED" ?

LED is the new Led Zep and an honorable self-tribute to the band

Led Zeppelin's past. "Zeppelin" could be now in the background for

the age and time it represented. "L.E.D.", a light-emitting

diode as you know, and we could say LZ are luminaries,

having achieved eminence, and who are an inspiration.

Luminary also mean VIP, lion, and superstar.

(it's still a little difficult to come up with a band name not that's already taken

by another band.)
