Led Zeppelin (http://www.ledzeppelin.com/)

And since there is Spitfire flyby in the opening of their web page, that makes it a forum worthy thread. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I need to check out the line-up. BTW, didn't LZ do a reunion back in the 90's with Jason Bonham on drums? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

This would be some show, albeit these guys are in their 60s now, and Plant's voice is not what it used to be, but for nostalgia's sake and for those who loved LZ, but never got to see them live, this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Sure wish I was going to be in the UK around the time of this show.

Yep, 1995 I think. I went to the Houston appearance of Page and Plant. Friggin' fantastic stuff. Robert's voice was still good that evening. I don't know how well he'd sound today.

It would be cool to see them...

Page toured with the Black Crowes ten years ago

The Crowes couldn't perform their own stuff (or about 90% of it) due to a legal battle with their publisher. They are huge Zep fans

So Page and the Crowes toured for a year. About 10% misc. stuff (even a Peter Green tune), about 50% Zeppelin, about 30% Yardbirds (!) and 10% Crowes tunes

"Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes Live at the Greek" is the double CD live album http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

They incorporated a lot of different styles in their music, but above it all was the driving beat of rock.

When I say he's doing a Blue Grass album, he's teaming up with a pure blue grass artist. Not one who has anytime previous diluted that style with any other style. It's the type of music we would think of as being a close cousin to those other two types of music. Country and Western. I don't think Earl Scruggs ever did a cover of The Battle of Evermore.

Funny how one person's death can leave such a lasting memory with you. I can remember where I was the first time I heard on the local rock station that Bonham was dead. Driving in a car with three of my friends passing the town square of Jacksonville, NC, just outside of Court Street.

Just like when Lennon died later the same year. Driving through Roger Williams Park in Prov. RI. The difference was I liked Led Zep., Lennon by himself wasn't so good IMO.

I always also loved "Good Times, Bad Times". As a drummer, those foot rolls that Bonham did in that song were always the bane of my existence, as I tried to copy them. He had a fast foot and always played single bass with one pedal.

My first kick pedal was a Ludwig Ghost that I kicked into a blue Ludwig Vistalite set after seeing Bonham's yellow one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I patterned my drum style when I was young after my three favorite rock drummers:

John Bonham - Great, driving beat, excellent footwork and he soloed with his hands.

Keith Moon - Awesome power and style. Great fill-type drummer.

Carl Palmer - A technical expert and IMHO actually was a bit more "rhythmic" than Neil Peart. When you compare his solo from the "Welcome Back My Friends" live album to Peart's on "All The World's a Stage", I feel Palmer wasn't just about speed, but rhythmic finesse. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I agree. Back in those days, bands put out complete albums of hits, not just one or two songs. Every Zep album had song after song of magic. I can't say that I cared much for "Coda", but wow, think about Zep I-IV, Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti...awesome.

+1 million.

Led Zep, Rush, Sabbath, and BOC are among my favorites. I've never seen LZ or Sabbath in concert, but I've been fortunate enough to see BOC and Rush.

One of the first songs I learned on bass was "The Ocean", fun song to play. They have many awesome tunes, it would be tough to pick just one. I think my favorite album would be a toss up between II and Houses of the Holy.

Not a chance I'd get lucky enough to go the Zep reunion. Maybe "in my time of dying", I'll have enough money to go. I'd also have to cross "the ocean" and I'd find "no quarter" that was affordable in which to stay a few nights if I did go. So, I'd probably have to pitch a tent "down by the seaside". I'd also probably be "dazed and confused" by the way they speak over in England. I do have a "whole lotta love" for their music but I guess my not being able to go is "what is and what should never be"!!

I'll try my best to "ramble on" some more here. But "how many more times" am I going to post these lames posts? It's "nobody's fault but mine" that I can't go to the reunion and it will be "wearing and tearing" at me for a while. Everyone assures me by saying, "your time is gonna come" and I'll get to go to maybe the next Zep reunion. I'm sure it would be a "celebration day" if indeed that comes true. It will be "dancing days" absolutely!! But I'm not gay so I won't "boogie with Stu"!

My "hats off to ( Roy ) Harper" because I heard he's going to be able to go. I know one dude who is the victim of a "communication breakdown" as his travel agent messed his trip up, so instead he's "going to California"!!! That was a real "heartbreaker", I'm sure!! Plus, his flight is going to be a "night flight" to add to his misery.

I really like "rock and roll" so I am headed out now to kick my "black dog" because I can't go. The poor dog is going to get "trampled under foot". If he's lucky I won't smack him with my "four sticks". If my dog is smart he'll run until he's "over the hills and far away" from here. Or he could go visit "the rover", the neighbor's dog.

The next time they have a reunion, "I'm gonna crawl" to it if I have to and I hope "poor Tom" will be able to go next time too.

To keep my mind off of my disappointment, "in the evening" I'm going to eat a "hot dog", a "tangerine" and some "custard pie" for dinner.
I hope I don't get "sick again" after eating too. So instead maybe I should just have some "tea for one"??

I'd like to "thank you" all for enduring this ridiculous post, you're all "friends". "You shook me" with your patience and understanding.
I think I can deal now with the fact that life is both "good times bad times"!! "That's the way" it is.

"For your life", I think I will put an end to this sickening post and "bring it on home" before we're all "out on the tiles" and you guys get the "gallows pole" to teach me a lesson.
