Led Zeppelin vs. Deep Purple ! :huh::lol:

The article contrast the groups member for member rating each on various points such as technique, stage performance and influence.

The curious part is that John Paul Jones goes up against Roger Glover (and amazingly loses!) but not Jon Lord :huh:

I can post the full results (or at least those I can read without too much trouble) if there is interest....

Rock Jet Magazine.

A special feature on Led Zeppelin creatively titled Houses of the Holy

They interview some Japanese Zep-fan musicians about their impressions of the new TSRTS CD and DVD releases. A lot of B/W photos on pulp, but a handful of full color glossies at the front. Also a section on Led Zeppelin's occult influences.

Record Collector's Magazine.

This one is really interesting.

It has a song-by-song breakdown for the original DVD release, the new DVD release, the MSG material from the 2003 DVD, the original release of the soundtrack and the new live album of the same name. They made a chart for which night's audio was used and where the edits are. It also points out bits of studio overdub or borrowed phrases from an alternate night. I suspect they've been reading The Garden Tapes.

It also has a nice discography with photos and descriptions of various issues of the film and soundtrack, including 4 different Japanese issues of Laser Disk, VHS, and LP.

There were a couple others that were interesting, but I put priority on these.

Deep Purple vs. Led Zeppelin, part 2

Ritchie Blackmore vs Jimmy Page

by Youhei Matsunaga

Technique

4 stars vs 3 1/2 stars

Riffs

4 stars vs 5 stars

Stage Act

4 stars vs 4 1/2 stars

Sexual Charisma

5 stars (in Japan) vs 5 stars (In Europe or America)

Influence

4 stars vs 5 stars

21 to 23, Page wins!

The writer notes that the only reason he didn't give page 5 stars for his stage act was because he had the misfortune of seeing some film of a show where page was too drunk to play.

Guest columnist and member of The Crazy Ken Band, Masao Onose also points out a difference between not just Page and Blackmore, but between Zep and Purple. Normally in Zeppelin's case it is said that without each individual member the band cannot exist. Deep Purple as a group has a life of its own regardless or vocal or even guitarist changes.

Ok, that's all I have time for today, next up, Robert Plant vs Ian Gillan.

Interesting, I'll look out for those.

I'm heading out to Japan on December 14th.

mmmm...can't wait to hit those bootleg stores!

Careful :)

You should try downloading, it's much more satisfying, not to mention reasonable.

Though, some of those Tarantur/la releases are in gorgeous packages, but you'll pay.

Thanks rockthing! I didn't realise these were hot off the presses (Zep vs Deep Purple?) :)

Yeah, just picked them up at HMV when I was looking for the Collector's edition TSRTS, which is sold out indefinitely. I was about to order on Amazon, but I just realised that I need a region 2 DVD.... and a region 1, since I won't be in Japan forever (I hope not at least)

Deep Purple vs Led Zeppelin part 3 (actually stage 2 in the magazine... the 'top tracks for beginning guitarists' didn't count.

Masayuki Tanaka formerly of Crystal King, now advertisement and game theme composer rates Ian Gillan and Robert Plant.

By the looks of the stock photo, he was a David Coverdale impersonator in his hey-day. :lol: (I thought it WAS a pic of Purple era Coverdale!)

Ian Gillan vs. Robert Plant

Singing Power

4 stars vs. 5 stars

Performance

2 stars vs. 5 stars

Emphasis on Sexiness

0 stars vs. 5 stars

Fashion

1 star vs. 2 stars

Influence

5 stars vs. 4 stars

12 to 21 Robert Plant wins

Does anyone have an image of Gillan performing on stage? Though, Tanaka laughs, Fashion is certainly Plant's weakness. Plant wins hands down in the areas of Performance and emphasis on sexiness. As far as influence is concerned, as a gateway into rock music Purple is much more important for Japanese music fans.

Plant established the boy-god aesthetic for vocalists.

Tanaka saw Led Zeppelin in Hiroshima on their first tour of Japan in 1971 and nearly collapsed in awe of Robert Plant's vocals.

This doesn't mean he has any less respect for Gillan, who he feels probably has better pure singing power. (whatever that's supposed to mean)

The example Tanaka uses is the 'unearthly shout' from the end of "Into The Fire".
