Skarekrough: Aren't we about due for another re-mastering of their catalog with a $100 plus Box Set release just in time for Christmas?I'm just afraid that these guys....you know....they don't have enough money. That's my big concern here.
qsblues: Them Crooked Vultures is what Led Zeppelin WANTED to sound like, but couldn't quite do it.
empres77: Robert Plant said he's just not interested in the rigors of touring.
browntimmy: qsblues: Them Crooked Vultures is what Led Zeppelin WANTED to sound like, but couldn't quite do it.That TCV album had like 2 and a half good songs and a bunch of meh ones.
GibbyTheMole: At 64 your voice isn't the same as when you were 20.

GibbyTheMole: A lot of people seem to think that music is like cottage cheese or something... After it's around for awhile, it spoils and has to be gotten rid of. That's kind of a weird notion for me to wrap my head around.
zappaisfrank: Led Zeppelin has been beaten into the frickin' ground. Every single one of their songs has been overplayed to death. They weren't that great to begin with.Put it away and leave it there.
kindms: zappaisfrank: Led Zeppelin has been beaten into the frickin' ground. Every single one of their songs has been overplayed to death. They weren't that great to begin with.Put it away and leave it there.with a name like zappaisfrank would you say the same for Franks material as well ?They were the greatest rock band to ever take the stage. You can talk about musicianship, song writing etc etc and make claims from everyone and anyone but NO ONE did it like Led Zeppelin. That is why their legacy survives today. They were essentially the best at what they did. Page - one of the best rock guitarists of all time (not the best per se but in the discussion), Plant - possibly the greatest front man in a rock band (definitely in the discussion), John Paul Jones (my personal favorite, the unsung hero of the band and again definitely in discussion for best rock bass player) and of course John Bonham (not much needs to be said about this monstrosity behind the kit) just try tapping your fingers to keep up with what he was doing, almost impossibleI get why they get some hate. every rock station plays their music every day and has been for the past 40 years. I have a hard time listening to the albums these days because i have heard them a million times. I try to stick with the live stuff these days, Harder to find and a lot of shiat but the good ones are INSANE.I guess I would be interested to see them if they played some shows, I like the page/plant stuff they did a while back. Some that stuff was great
GibbyTheMole: FlashHarrylisten to him at knebworth in '79. he's already singing stuff down the octave - and he was just 31 then.True dat. I also expect having to be able to do it on a nightly basis probably also led to him modifying his technique a bit.
