One of my all time favourite bands, four guys who were each the absolute best at what they did. I don't think they're studio albums really do them justice, live they were just incredible.  :shock:

Fantastic band.

Great singer
Skilled guitarist
Talented bassist
Awesome drummer

and together they created the best rock band of all time (just my opinion).

I can't say they're my favorite band, but they are definitely one of the best bands in the world, me thinks.  Just such quality stuff, so solid... I'm getting Jimmy Pages's symbol ("Zoso") tattooed on me soon enough, because it represents the mysticism of music, to me anyway, and they are a great example of that.  How the sound coming from Jimmy's guitar or Robert's voice can just give you goosebumps, send you into another dimension...I'm getting a little off tangent here sorry  :roll:

I love loads of Led Zep tracks.....Since I've been loving You.. Kinda always gets me going!!

Jimmy Page not only as a guitarist, but as a producer, did sooo much for music. I really admire all the things he did as a producer. Whoever said Led Zep in the studio wasn't as good live, that might be true, but the studio albums had an entirely different and occasionally more interesting life to them. Just look at the songs "Ten Years Gone" and "Achilles Last Stand." There are sooo many neat things and overdubs on it. The harmony is incredible..

Greatest band ever!! John Bonham was one of the best drummers ever. .


I totally agree.

My dad put a vinyl copy of Led Zep II on the stereo when I was about 11.

After that I dumped pop music and became a rocker. And Led Zep are the kings. The original and the best.

There will NEVER be a band to touch the majesty of Led Zep.

And I think live they were *better* so to speak because there was so much improv, the song was never the same, which I love about them.

I love how they had so many different layers and harmonies in their songs. It doesn't sound like four individual people playing, it's just such a cohesive wall of sound. I am in total awe when I listen to them. I think my favourite song is No Quarter, it's so trancelike...

Plant had such a powerful voice. Oh yeah, and the Lemon Song rocks :rofl:

I love them too. absolute brillance. have you read that unauthorised biography? gee - can't think of the name of it now and I've read it  :?- Duff talked about it in some interview and Slash said Jimmy Page hated the book - it is all about their debauched rock n' roll life.

I just adore, love and admire this band. Led Zeppelin are pure legends, they are the first band that truly inspired/motivated many artists that we listen to today to also create music and keep the cycle going. Each member is truly talented, John Bonham has got to be my favourite all time drummer, just listening to him on Dazed and Confused and Moby dick gives me the shivers! also since I've been loving you is one of my all time favourite led zep songs along with stairway to heaven!!  :D

I read Hammer of the Gods in 2 days. That was just amazing. It made me appreciate what they did a lot more, and i had many good laughs along the way.... couldnt put the book down.

I think my favorite zepp song would have to be House of The Holy, Black Dog, possibly even Going to California.

'How The West Was Won' is hands down the best live album ever.

But I think I am an odd Led Zep fan; 'Stairway To Heaven' would struggle to make my Top 25 Led Zep songs.

Maybe I subconsciously don't like the song as much as I should in the same way I despise 'Sweet Child O'Mine' because that is the only song non-GN'R fans know. :(

I'm one of the few you'll find who doesn't care much for Zeppelin, but then I have never owned an album.   I am going to buy their IV album because up until this point in time I have only heard a handful of songs, all of which I thought were kinda shit, but I need to hear that album regardless.   They are idolized by so many, so highly regarded, I need to fuckin' hear this shit 'cause if I am missing out on some kick ass music I am gonna cry!   The songs I did hear to me sounded dated, may have caused a stir and been innovative back in the day, but I just didn't feel it.   ...buy hey, if I can give Nirvana a fair shot and buy an album it's the least I can do for Zeppelin.   Nirvana sucked by the way, not my thing at all.   Now it's Zeppelin's turn, it never hurts to try and widen your musical taste.   So is IV the best place to start?
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: WomanoftheWorld on August 19, 2005, 10:39:30 AM
Well all you can do is give it a fair chance Midnight.  If you still don't like them, at least you can say you did listen and it wasn't for you, so that's fair enough!  Buy anything - I think it's all fantastic!  Led Zep II is one I play a lot - Living Loving Maid,  Whole Lotta Love, Moby Dick - great stuff. 

My older brother and my Uncles got me into Led Zep, and Black Dog was the first song of theirs I ever heard.  Love at first listen for me!

For his fine contributions of "yeah..." and "Uh-huh"?  :lol: You ever see that Conan episode?  Conan does "In the year 2000" and he goes "Puff Daddy will sing his own songs" and he does a rendition, and since there's no sample music, he's just going "Yeah" and "uh-huh" it was hilarious.  I realize he actually rapped more than that on Kashmir, and I shouldn't be saying anything myself cuz when Puffy and Jimmy were on SNL performing it, when I was in JHS, I didn't really know who Jimmy Page was.

Led Zeppelin is awesome. Each member was incredibely talented. Jimmy Page is my favourite guitarist and Robert Plant my favourite singer. I own 3 of their albums at the moment but I only got into them recently. It's hard to pick a favourite , there are so many great songs they've written.  :D
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: Guns n' Revolvers on August 20, 2005, 04:19:06 AM
Great thread, ive wanted to post one myself for some time now.

Ive always loved Led Zeppelin, but its turned into quite an obession recently. In a period of a month i bought there entire catalogue, their DVD and a huge lamenated poster ive hung behind my door. Im in the middle of reading Stairway to heaven, a biography their tour manage wrote. i recommend this book to any who is even a slight fan, it definetly one of the best rock books ive ever read (and ive read heaps).

Led Zeppelin = Rock Gods

why:
- they boasted of one of the (if not the) greatest line-up in the history of rock, where every single member is regarded as one of the finest in their feild.
- never released singles
- hardly ever did interviews
- they dont allow their music to be featured in commercials or movies (with only school of rock as an exception, but come on that was a great scene).
- considering the lack of promotion as stated above, they have sold close to 250 million albums worldwide a feat only bettered by the beatles and elvis (keep in mind that 85% of the beatles and elvis' sales were from singles).
- Simply the artist of seventies, outselling their nearest competitors by tens of millions of albums.
- influenced every rock band ever since
- they dont capitalise on their past greatness by releasing a billion greatest hits, limited addition stuff, dvds, books etc
- they have come to terms with the fact that they can never be as good as they once were hence the absence of a reformation and tour.
- concerning the last two points: think rolling stones, kiss, the eagles etc.
- They basically havent sold out: their greatness lives through the music!

Lets just pretend that puff daddy never existed shall we.

I don't know about Hammer of the Gods, but Stairway to Heaven made me really happy because beyond all their antics the author still maintained they were crazy about their music.  Unlike The Dirt  :lol: which was fun to read nevertheless..
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: shirleythetatoo on August 20, 2005, 09:59:51 PM
I liked Hammer of the Gods it seemed quite true and real to me, but as I mentioned it is unauthorised so what is true and not is anyone's guess - I found it quite believable and the writer had a great knowledge of their music and recordings, apparently Plant thought it was ok, but Page hated it. Would like to read the Stairway to Heaven bio as at least that is written by someone actually involved in their circle ...
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: rockcandy on August 21, 2005, 05:52:37 AM
i have the hammer of the gods and thought it was pretty okay, i was sort of expecting a bit more dirt. i heard the book, stairway to heaven was full of bullshit so i didnt buy it.

Anyways, i think i first got into led zeppelin when i found the greatest hits cd in my dad's cd collection, but i couldn't listen to the cd because the cd was missing :lol: so i downloaded a couple of songs from them because i'd figured they must be a really great band otherwise my dad wouldn't by the album---he doesn't really like rock music by the way. And the rest was well.. i dunno, i guess i was really hooked to their music..blah, im gonna stop here before i start droning. i dont make much sense do i? okay im rambling...

fav. songs

babe im gonna leave you
whole lotta love
immigrant song

This is definitely one of my all time favorite bands. Jimmy Page is too awesome to be true. And for Bonham, I didn't really see any talent in him at first, but the drum solo in The Song Remains The Same made me change thoughts. What a movie! I almost got in trance when Page played the guitar with a violin whatever-it-is-called!

I love Led Zeppelin! I grew up listening to them because my mom and dad love them. I remember my dad trying to teach me to play Stairway To Heaven when I was younger. Good Times  :mrgreen: Now I'm learning a lot of their songs on guitar and it's lots of fun. My favorite song right now is probably When The Levee Breaks, I just can't get over the awesomeness of that song. hehe

Led Zeppelin I through to Physical Graffiti. All six are awesome, can't go wrong.

ok i'll narrow it down for you:
if you like experimentation get 'houses of the holy'. (Slash's personal fave).
if you want more blues-based rock get LZ I
if you like acoustics get III
if you like hard riff rocking get II
if you like all of the above get IV and Physical Graffiti.

remember one album is not nearly enough. they were so consistant on those 6, its hard to pick between them.

can't see jimmy?, thats trouble.

I can't believe i missed the zep thread for so long, i got into them maybe 5 years ago when i bought led zeppelin I at a second hand store, i liked it but the obsesion didn't really take off till i got the dvds. All music dvds should be that good, wow, i've watched it hundreds of times now and exposed so many people to the band by "forcing" them to watch it with me.
to all those people out there who might read stairway to Heaven, Don't.  read Hammer of the Gods,  I've read both and i wouldn't trust anything richard cole has to say.

ive been trying to find hammer of the gods but its sold-out most places i look. they're like we'll order in for you , it should take a month and im like fuck that. i might get it off amazon.

i force people to watch the DVD with me too. ive actually converted some of my friends. i call it "giving birth to my brain child".lol. i know very stupid.
ya, i had to order it, it was worth the wait though.  alot of the people i've "forced" ended up buying the dvd as well, ahhh, the taste of victory

I read Hammer of the Gods in 2 days. That was just amazing. It made me appreciate what they did a lot more, and i had many good laughs along the way.... couldnt put the book down.

I think my favorite zepp song would have to be House of The Holy, Black Dog, possibly even Going to California.

That was a great read!  Interesting shit in that book!  Loved the story of how they wrote Stairway!!

Bought the Led Zeppelin I album yesterday, I have to say on first impressions its pretty poor, the only decent song so far is Going To Calafornia.   Stairway To Heaven has great lyrics but the way its sung just doesn't appeal to me (prob moreover Plants voice on a whole I don't like much) but I will listen to it as much as I can to see if it grows on me.   
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin

i find the first album ok, not excellent or anything but just a couple of songs that i like.

anyway, just listened to the song "No Quarter" and i really find that song spooky and haunting..probably the sound effects of plant's voice...

Led Zeppelin Awarded Prestigious Polar Music Prize

The winners of the Polar Music Prize Award, for 2006 were unveiled today at The Royal Swedish Academy of Music in Stockholm. "The 2006 Polar Music Prize is awarded to the British group Led Zeppelin, one of the great pioneers of rock. Their playful and experimental music combined with highly eclectic elements has two essential themes: mysticism and primal energy. These are features that have come to define the genre 'hard rock'". The prize winners will receive the prize from His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden at a gala ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall to be followed by a celebratory banquet at Grand Hôtel on Monday May 22, 2006. "It's a great honor and privilege", says John Paul Jones

Holy crap! :shock:   So the album Spikeout bought is the mighty Led Zeppelin - IV, man, I had a full listen of the album and thought it was bollocks, at least on first impressions.   Some cool parts from Page on guitar, but Plant on vocals is awful, at least in my opinion, got one of those voices that I personally cannot stand.   I'll have to listen again, seeing as this is the supposed best rock album of all time in the view of many.   I failed to hear anything on there that was even close to backing up such praise...

To me, it's a bit weird to share the music taste of my Dad, because he likes Led Zeppelin and stuff like that which is very cool, but on the other hand also listens to music that is far from being good IMO (God knows why he likes country music :shock: ... and before you bring it up: There may be decent country music, but not the bands my dad listens to :?).

Post by: velvetqueen on July 05, 2006, 03:27:15 PM
hahaha :lol: I agree with you on that

what about his looks? Back in Led Zeppelin he was a beautiful man.

In 2000 I think, I saw him on tv and he didn't look good at all! he looked old and tired and his hair was definitely not big and curly.. But last year he played in Tromsø (a city in Norway) and I saw him on tv, and he looked really good! Nice hair, ok skin, cool clothes and so on.. :)

Post by: Mrs. Tophat on July 05, 2006, 03:33:28 PM
He looked fine from where I was standing
And his hair was definetly big and curly  :D

his clothes were quite baggy though
far from the seventies when he used to wear those extra tight jeans and mini waistcoats

ooohh those tight jeans........ :lol:
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: velvetqueen on July 05, 2006, 03:39:40 PM
awesome Oh I just love his hair!
..Well I do understand that, I guess his body isn't that thin anymore, and hey his a 60 year old man, LOL it would be wrong of him to wear the same clothes as earlier :lol: (fine for me though....)
haha, he definitely had the tightest jeans and the smallest waistcoasts!! Go go Mr. Plant <3
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: Mrs. Tophat on July 05, 2006, 03:44:49 PM
he he go Mr. Plant indeed  :lol:

I was soooo happy when he stared playing the Zep stuff especially 'going to california' as its one of my all-time favourite songs

I was bound to be a Led Zep fan. My dad worships them and told me how he played them in the car to me when he was taking me back from the hopital after I was born

so there you go, the first ever song I heard was Tea for One by Zep when I was only a few days old  :D
Title: Re: Led Zeppelin
Post by: velvetqueen on July 05, 2006, 03:55:17 PM
yeah it's great that he plays some LedZep songs as well :) I really wanna see him now... Hope I'll get the chance in near future

Cool, there you go! None of my parents like LedZep.. at least not much. I can't remember exactly when I first heard of them, but I think it was the same time as I started to like GNR.. And thats a while ago. My brother showed me a Black Dog video, and the first thing I noticed was Plants moves lol, and I really liked the song. Since then, I've been a fan and I love them. My favourite band after GNR.

Do you know anything about Plant and Page's relationship these days? Are they good friends? they haven't been fighting have they? I would love to see them playing together!

If they ever announce a performance together im there front row again lol  :D

Am I the only one that thinks the song Stairway to Heaven is over-rated as the "Greatest Rock song of all time" ?  I mean it takes like 6 minutes to get going, I've tried listening to it a lot of times and it has never grown on me. Maybe the "Greatest Rock song of all time" should be something more in your face, like "Welcome to the Jungle", a song that even if someone isn't really into Rock will like.

"Stairway to Heaven" is the most played song on American FM radio. That's saying a lot considering it wasn't even released as a single.

As far as "getting going" is concerned, that's not what makes a song good. "Stairway" is a brilliant composition because it builds and builds and builds and there's not a bad section about it. It's technically challenging (not a song for beginners), it's lyrically brilliant, it's catchy as all hell, it has one of the best guitar solos of all time (which was improvised - major props to Jimmy Page), there are NO songs that sound like it, and it's stood the test of time beautifully.

I've listened to the song for more than 2 years, it definitely isn't catchy. Not to my ears anyway :lol:. I think everyone has their definition for what makes a song good, "getting going" is one aspect that makes me judge a song. I think its a good song maybe in the best 200 rock songs but not the best ever. I don't think being technically challenging makes it great but maybe it does to some people. I also think the song is hard to get into if you're not particularly into rock music. But I don't know maybe it's just me being weird  :P

Technically challenging isn't a requirement for a song to be good, but it's impressive if it's there. I'm just thinking as if this were a competition and you give points for each thing. I'd give more points to the composition that is catchy AND musically interesting than to a song that was just two chords and catchy.

As for the hard to get into side.. I think I'd disagree. It's one of those songs that most people (I realize this didn't work with you) are won over by if they listen to it in its entirity. My band played this song at a talent show for an auditorium filled with high school kids from the city that don't listen to anything that doesn't have an MC rapping over it and they ate the song up. I'd probably say that any one part of the song is not the best thing ever written, but put together it's amazing.

Not everyone's gonna dig Stairway (Slayer/Cannibal Corpse fans for example). But that doesn't make it any less of an insanely kick ass song.
There's a reason so many people love it and it's not because the press said so. I think everyone that loves it has their own personal love affair with that song. It's just one of those pieces of music that you never forget.

AND it's only the tip of the iceberg of the Led Zeppelin catalogue, which holds many other treasures.

someone said everyone likes Welcome to the Jungle...I dont :P one of gnr's few songs i dont like. I know this is irrelevant so to the topic...

Stairway To Heaven is a brilliant song, I love it...but everyone got their own taste and there's no such thing as "the best rock song" or "the best rock band" etc...it's a matter of taste and opinion, and the definition of "best".

Listened to Led Zepplin whole day today at work and I'm still so amazed the work between John Paul Jones and John Bonham...i never get tired of LZ's songs and I'm still sad Bonham died...would have loved to see them all rocking these days.

The guitar part for Stairway? Which part? The only portion of the song even close to used before is the coda. That chord progression (Am  G  F) has been used a ton, but never in the way that Page articulated it. But then again, every chord progression possible has been done by someone sometime somewhere by this point. It's all about how you articulate the chord progression and make it unique which I think Page did spledidly with.

The local radio station which is like classic rock 101.1 said that it was old news. But either Apple or their label will be paying this much to the members to do it this year:
Robert Plant: $250,000,000
Jimmy Page: $250,000,000
John Paul Jones: $100,000,000
Jason Bonham: $70,000,000


I can see it happening. I hope they dont do it just for the money if they do it. I'd rather see them turn down the money and just do it for the billions of people that they have influenced or just the fans etc. And have a sweet world tour.

One thing I cant see is... Plant hitting those high notes. I just cant see Black Dog, Immigrant Song, Rock and Roll etc... him doing it. :( which sorta sucks.

Robert Plant has laughed off reports Led Zeppelin are to reform.

The surviving members of the influentuial rock band – Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones – were expected to play together during a tribute concert for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

However, Plant has denied any such plan, saying, “If there was one, then there wouldn't be enough doctors to support it!"

Fans around the globe had been speculating that the one-off date would lead to a further world tour. Unfortunately, at the moment, it seems these hopes have been dashed.

1975 Madison Square Garden. My Brother was there on the floor. The best concert he ever went to.

If Zep came back for a short stint with Jason, there would be mass hysteria. They would have to play Stadiums, cuz everywhere they went, they would sell out and ticket demand would be way high. They'd have to play Michigan Stadium, Tennessee and any college football stadium. Zep are that big. No band and I mean no band can compete. Not GNR, so don't try, or even KISS, who were the only ones who could pull that off in 1996, just cuz of the originals. Even then, I don't think they would fill 100,000 seat stadiums consistently. Madison Square Garden is too small. Only Giant Stadium or Yankee Stadium would work in NY.

Stairway by far is my alltime favorite song. It puts me in another place in my mind. It always does for some reason.

I've seen countless concerts. Best ever was KISS 1996 at MSG. But this formation of Zep, forget it. Everyone who likes Rock n Roll would have to see them, and that's millions upon millions. If you like Rock n Roll, the only way to pay homage to Rock is to see Zep ONCE. The experience would change everyone.

Post by: Bella on September 12, 2007, 08:57:45 AM
In case you haven't already heard...the rumors are officially over!

Maybe it's stupid to advertise the lottery and compete against even more people, but everyone will hear this in a matter of hours, and I almost peed myself at this news!  If I can get some tickets, I will do anything to get to London on that day.  I'm willing to get fired...possibly willing to blow my savings for the plane tickets, hotel, and expensive-ass (and so very very worth it) tickets.
Who wants to come with?


From Billboard.com:
Led Zeppelin Takes Flight, For One Night Only
September 12, 2007, 10:40 AM ET


Lars Brandle and Tom Ferguson, London
Legendary rock combo Led Zeppelin is reforming, but for one night only. The British band will play a one-off show at London's 22,000-capacity O2 arena on Nov. 26 as part of a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder and chairman emeritus Ahmet Ertegun, who died last December. The band recorded for Atlantic its entire career.

The Who's Pete Townshend, former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini will also perform at the event. Profits will benefit the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which provides scholarships to universities in the United States, United Kingdom and Ertegun's homeland, Turkey.

Tickets costing £125 ($254) will be allocated on a lottery basis through the Ahmettribute.com web site.

Confirmation of the show, putting an end to several months of speculation, came at a press conference today (Sept. 13) at the O2 when the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, confirmed they would reunite onstage for just the third time in 27 years. The drummer for the evening will be Jason Bonham, son of the band's original drummer John Bonham, who died from a heart attack in 1980.

The concert will follow the release of a new Atlantic/Rhino two-disc, 24-track best-of set, "Mothership," due Nov. 13 in the United States.

Page, Plant and Jones initially reformed with Genesis' Phil Collins and Chic/Power Station sticksman Tony Thompson sharing drum duties for a performance at Live Aid in Philadelphia in 1985. In May 1988, Jason Bonham joined the three originals for another 'one-off" reunion at an Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert in New York.

Plant and Page teamed in 1994 for an MTV special and subsequently toured globally and released two albums. Jones has also released two solo albums, although his post-Zeppelin work has largely concentrated on production and arranging.

I'd have loved to see them again, but don't think they've aged all that well. Plant started taking his singing a bit too seriously with the Honeydrippers, and I don't think he pulled that off well at all. I forget the last time I saw JP...maybe with Pete Townshend?

That said, I was at MSG for the filming of "The Song Remains the Same" and a few earlier Zep shows and they were awesome. Some of the laser effects on the TSRTS DVD were added but the live lasers were great. (Only better from around that time was Blue Oyster Cult's, though the more recent faux Floyd tours had some laser effects that stand out.). Borrowing a bit from Pink Floyd, the effect of surround speakers going off when the lasers from the neck of JPs guitar pointed toward them was mind blowing, and I think he was at his best on that tour.

Id put "No Quarter" and "Dazed and Confused" at the top of my list today, but as someone said earlier, read someone elses favorites and theres bound to be an "Oh Yeah, great song" to be found on it.

Led Zeppelin Reunion Concert Postponed Due to Fractured Finger
11/1/07, 4:11 pm EST


Led Zeppelin’s November 26th reunion concert has been pushed back to December 10th because guitarist Jimmy Page fractured his finger. The injury, which he sustained this past weekend, will make him unable to play guitar for the next three weeks. “I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks,” Page said in a statement. “However, Led Zeppelin have always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal, and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to.” Tickets bought for the original show will be honored on the new date, and refunds will also be available. This news sucks (especially since Page busted a finger in a train door in 1975 but soldiered on and continued to tour), but we’ve waited twenty-seven years for this show, so what’s another fourteen days? That is, of course, unless you already bought plane tickets and made hotel reservations.

CINCINNATI — It was one of those moments where all you can do is look at the guy next to you and wonder, "Did he really just say that?"

Is it possible that Ian Astbury, lead singer of '80s rock powerhouse the Cult, spilled the beans on the biggest secret in rock — during a club show in Cincinnati?

"We'll be back next year," a breathless Astbury said midway through the band's gig at Bogart's nightclub Saturday night. "Because we're opening for a band you may have heard of ... the name starts with an 'L' and has a 'Z' in it." Stunned looks bounced around the room until one sweat-drenched superfan shouted out the obvious: "Led Zeppelin!" Astbury, his eyes hidden behind dark shades, nodded affirmatively and stuck his hand in the air triumphantly before plowing into one of the band's signature Zeppelinesque rockers.

When asked about Astbury's seeming confirmation of the world tour, spokespeople for the Cult and Zeppelin both declined to comment. Zeppelin's spokesperson added that no decision has been made on any Led Zeppelin tour and the band is focusing on its appearance at the Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert in London on December 10; a Cult spokesperson declined to answer questions about Astbury's comment.

It's no secret that the three living members of Zeppelin — singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and long-estranged bassist John Paul Jones — will be performing together for the first time in many years at the December 10 show, which celebrates their mentor, late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. But so far, despite breathless speculation, the one-off gig — which was recently rescheduled from its original November 26 date after Page injured his finger — is the only official reunion show the trio has planned.

Spokespeople for the legendary group, who will perform with Jason Bonham, the son of late drummer John Bonham, have batted down rumors of a full-blown world tour — and as recently as last month, Plant said it was not in the cards. But Page suggested in an recent Guitar World magazine article that playing just one show would be foolish. "It's a bit silly not to because there is such massive demand," Page told the magazine. "It's a bit selfish to do just one show. If that's it, we probably shouldn't have taken the genie out of the bottle."

The group originally disbanded after John Bonham's death from alcohol poisoning in 1980. Plant, Page and Jones performed at Live Aid in 1985 (with Phil Collins and Chic's Tony Thompson tag-teaming on drums) and at the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary show in 1988 with Jason Bonham; they also performed at Jason's wedding. Page and Plant joined forces for two albums and a world tour in the mid-'90s and have performed together sporadically over the years.

Whether or not Astbury was speaking out of turn, the choice of the Cult as a potential opening act would make sense stylistically — given the huge debt the British band owes to Zeppelin — but perhaps less so given the band's lower profile in recent years.

It has been a hectic time in Zeppelinland lately, with a new two-disc best-of collection, Mothership, in stores last week, a recently launched all-Zeppelin XM satellite radio channel and the digital release of the band's catalog earlier this month, as well as the launch on Tuesday of the official ledzeppelin.com website.

Additionally, Page revealed in a recent Reuters interview that the group has plans to uncork a never-before-performed live song during the O2 show, though he would not specify what the "really intense" track would be. He also recently told the BBC that the group met in private for some practice sessions before committing to the reunion gig to make sure they were on the same page. "We wanted to see how well we'd be playing together, and once we played it was without doubt we wanted to do it," he said.

What I dread, and I hope promoters and venues take additional steps to correct this problem before this becomes a reality, is that any normal music fan won't have access to these shows because of the prices. I can see brokers purchasing up the tickets and charging them up to an average of $450-500 for nose-bleeds. This would knock all other reunion tours out of the water.

But if it's in a reasonable price range (this would be the one band aside from STP I'd pay over $100 to see), I'll be there. Lollapalooza? I can dream.

 Led Zeppelin's time is coming again.

When the diviners of rock 'n' roll classics "Stairway to Heaven," "Whole Lotta Love" and "You're Time is Gonna Come" reunite for their first full concert in almost three decades, the question on everyone's mind is sure to be: How many more times?

Monday's reunion in London has quickly become one of the most anticipated concerts of all time. Whether a larger tour will follow could depend on how well Zeppelin's members — singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones and the late drummer John Bonham's son Jason — perform in front of a frenzied audience.

"I've got to go through it, see how I feel," Jones told Rolling Stone magazine in its December issue.

If the result of the band's early rehearsals is any indication, Zeppelin fans have reason to be hopeful. Bonham told Rolling Stone that the band clicked immediately, right from the opening notes of the first song they tried: the haunting dirge "No Quarter."

"When the riff came in, there was this look that went around. It was brilliant." After blasting through "Kashmir" next, Bonham told the magazine that the band stopped and Page said, "'Can you give me a hug?' And Robert (Plant) shouted, 'Yeah, sons of thunder!'"

The 63-year-old Page echoed those sentiments to Q music magazine, saying the initial get-together was "so exhilarating and fun that I did feel I would like to do more."

Despite rumors that the 59-year-old Plant can no longer hit the high notes, the singer's latest album, with bluegrass star Alison Krauss, seems to show that he's still in good voice. On "Raising Sand," one of this year's surprise hits, Plant still has that otherworldly feel.

Besides, he rarely was able to conjure the same piercing vocals from Zeppelin's studio albums when onstage in the band's heyday.

Led Zeppelin formed in 1968, but disbanded in late 1980 when Bonham choked to death on his own vomit after a drinking binge. In their 12 years, the group evolved from a rhythm and blues band first known as "The New Yardbirds" to become the standard for guitar-driven hard rock and the precursors of heavy metal.

Plant's caterwauling vocals and curly blond locks combined with Page's ragged riffs to give the band an identity that became instantly recognizable, but Bonham's death robbed the group of its heart-pounding pulse. Led Zeppelin disbanded on Dec. 4 of that year after a career of hard-living success that saw it fly around the world on a private jumbo jet to play sold-out concerts just about everywhere.

I had a phonecall from 'a friend' telling me I could go to the aftershow party if I wanted - but being stupid (and cause I was with my dad and needed to get home) I siad I just couldn't do it.  What I didn't know at the time was that I walked past the entrance to the party twice - so I could've just popped in for a look!!!  For the first time ever I made a school boy error on a blag.  DAMN!

However, I am so happy that I was able to be there.  The range of ages and nationalities just helped to build the anticipation.  I was outside talking to loads of people who had come from all around the world, it was truly unbeliveable.

Led Zeppelin concert off until at least September
Mon Jan 28, 2008 3:43am EST

By Dan Sloan

TOKYO (Reuters) - British rock band Led Zeppelin enjoyed jamming together again last year in a charity concert but won't have another session before September at the earliest, lead guitarist Jimmy Page said in Tokyo on Monday.

A successful reunion show in London in December rekindled hopes of a world tour, but Page said that singer Robert Plant's tour with U.S. country singer Alison Krauss is keeping him busy for now.

"I can assure you the amount of work that we put into the O2 (concert), for ourselves rehearsing and the staging of it, was probably what you put into a world tour," Page said.

But, "Robert Plant also had a parallel project running and he's really busy with that project, certainly until September, so I can't give you any news."

Page, in Tokyo to promote a greatest hits release, painted a happy picture of the reunion.

"It was exhilarating, fantastic, every week was a week to look forward to," he said. "We did the show and it was great."

The band, formed in 1968 by Page, Plant, bass guitarist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham, became arguably the world's biggest rock group by the early 1970s.

Their fourth album, released in 1971, included their most famous song, "Stairway to Heaven," while the band has sold an estimated 300 million albums worldwide.

The group decided to break up shortly after Bonham died in September 1980, although Page and Plant collaborated at times over the years.

Plant, Page and Jones performed together in London before about 20,000 fans on December 10, with Bonham's son Jason on the drums.

When the concert was announced, the Internet site selling tickets crashed with applications, while the possibility of a new world tour had fans around the globe excited.

Page said after many years the song indeed remained the same.

"That is what was so thrilling really -- to come together after all this time and find that there was so much chemistry and so much electricity involved in these four characters."

i think it was Kid Rock who said that "in the 60's and 70's everyone was ugly but their music was awesome, but now everyone's pretty and their music sucks". i agree to an extent, but he's prob just sayin that coz he's ugly as hell himself!

anyway, back on topic, hopefully they do release a dvd of the reunion show. gotta love LZ, kashmir and immigrant song prob my favs, but their whole catalogue from beginning to end is littered with classic tracks. not too many bands can claim to have done the same. true legends.

Is Steven Tyler joining Led Zeppelin?

by Elizabeth Bromstein
Hey you got your Aerosmith in my Led Zeppelin! You got your Led Zeppelin in my Aerosmith! Two tastes that are better together?


OK, this probably isn't true because none of the news you read about Led Zeppelin these days is true, except that they are/are not/are/are not/are/are not planning on touring, but Starpulse reports that the band has been jamming with Steven Tyler. Yes. The one from Aerosmith!

As you know there has been speculation about a Zep tour ever since they united for that one off last year but Robert Plant is not at all into it for the time being, as he is content to play bluegrass with Allison Krauss rather than make you sweat and make you groove.

But there are persistent reports that the two other living original members, Jimmy on guitar and John on bass, along with John Bonham's son Jason on drums, are rehearsing together.

So now a source has told Britain's The Mail on Sunday newspaper, "Steve was jamming with Zep. They had a great time but Steve kept fluffing (messing up) his lines. He got quite flustered about it."


Steven Tyler and Led Zeppelin. It could work.

Meanwhile, according to eGigs.co.uk, John Paul Jones told an audience in Exeter, Devon last weekend "As you probably know, Jimmy, Jason and I are actually rehearsing and we've had the odd singer come in and have a bash. As soon as we know -- which we don't -- we will let you know. But we really hope that something is going to happen soon because we really want to do it and we're having a lot of fun, actually, just rehearsing. Jason is actually tremendous... And what we've done so far sounds absolutely fantastic. When it does come, it will come, and you'll know about it."

Assuming this is true, I think it could work, but the question is whether or not you really want to see Steven Tyler wail away in Robert Plant's place.

I love his voice, but I'm not so sure about him standing in for Plant.  Especially on Zep's moodier, more melodic tracks.

Post by: The Snakepit on October 31, 2008, 02:41:30 PM
When Robert Plant crushed reports that he'd be reuniting with the surviving members of Led Zeppelin last month, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones asserted they'd just have to rock on without him. Let Plant have his old-timey country side project and comely young duet partner. There are other gnarly voiced rockers who'd give their best pair of tight pants to join the band on the road.

But where to turn for a new lead singer? Should they go the Journey route and look to the magic of YouTube for answers? Or perhaps hire another old pro, to form some sort of mutant, cash-generating supergroup the likes of Velvet Revolver?

Billboard is reporting that Led Zeppelin's search is over, and they've chosen Myles Kennedy -- best known as the frontman of rock band Alter Bridge (best known as Creed without Scott Stapp).

According to the industry mag, Kennedy, 38, has already been practicing with Page and Jones, as well as drummer Jason Bonham.

Billboard's report backs up claims made by Twisted Sister's Dee Snider from earlier this month. In an interview with MuchMoreMusic, Snider said Page, Jones and Bonham confronted Plant, saying:

"We're all rehearsed, we're ready to go. Here's a gazillion dollars on the table. If you don't do it, we're going out with this kid [Kennedy]. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin. And they're gonna hope that Robert, at the last minute, will go, 'OK', and step in."

Led Zeppelin, however, has yet to make an official statement. Before anything's in writing, perhaps someone can sway them to go with Leona Lewis instead. Talk about a bargain; choose Leona and she'll throw in a hydraulic lift for free.

Do yourself a favour and go beyond what was released on the DISC.  It's not hard as the Crowes sell all their own shows as well as promote bootlegs of their concerts.

Robinson in Zeppelin would suck just as hard as Myles Kennedy. Why? Because neither of them are Plant. Thinking you can tour with Bonham anyways is just foolish.

Yeah, I bought the CDs when they were released, it's all Led Zeppelin songs, with some blues covers (Oh Well, Sloppy Drunk) and a killer take on the Yardbirds' Shapes Of Things...they played four or five Crowes tunes per show, but were not allowed to put them on the CD, thanks to Sony. It was great to hear those late period Zep tunes with three killers guitars plus keys, with Chris Robinson singing, but again...NOT Led Zeppelin...if Jimmy Page undetakes a tour using the name Led Zeppelin without Robert Plant he'll get exactly what Axl will get from me...nothing. Not one penny will I spend to see or hear that. If he tours as Page, Jones, Bonham and Some Other Guy, I'll give it a chance, maybe.

I think touring with or without Plant is a fine idea. Either way they're gonna make a shitload of money, so why not? Plant seems pretty involved in his stuff with whatsherface. Who is that bitch anyways?

Great then he should keep truckin' with that. If the rest of the band wants to tour, why should they wait for Plant? Just go ahead with it.

^They can go right ahead...under a different name.

Call it "Jimmy Page's self indulgence wanker express" for all I could care, but touring under the Zeppelin banner without Plant and more importantly without Bonham is ludicrous.

Wasn't AC/DC's High Voltage from 76? That's a classic record.

Anywhere Presence is not my favourite Zeppelin record but I have a lot of respect for it. Love Nobody's Fault But Mine and Royal Orleans.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was '76, but I wouldn't put it in the same class as Presence or Rocks at all.

Post by: SnakeEyes on November 04, 2008, 01:09:10 PM
In all honesty I would as I'm a huge fan of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Ain't No Fun Waiting Round To Be A Millionaire, Ride On, Problem Child and Squeler. I think out of the three Rocks has to be the classic one though.

Has anyone else here picked up How The West Was Won? Fucking great live record but I think 25 minutes of Dazed & Confused and the 19 odd minute drum solo in Moby Dick is a bit tiresome.

Not that I really care  :lol: but what does a cover of an old Dead Kennedys song have to do with Led Zeppelin? Or 1976? And by the way what was your issue with Rocks exactly? Easily one of the greatest records of '76, if not the entire decade IMO.

Yeah I hear you there.  When I saw the Foo Fighters Taylors drum solo left me speechless.  He is INCREDIBLE at the drums.  Dave is too but I think Taylor may be better because thats what he does every day.

May I ask what kind of drugs you are on???????????

JOHN BONHAM IS THE BEST (OR ONE OF THE BEST) OF ALL TIME AND THERE IS NO ONE THAT WILL EVER BE ABLE TO REACH THE GREATNESS HE HAS ACHIEVED!!

Personally. I don't wanna see this Foo Zeppelin combo.

I don't know how you guys define a "good drummer", and I don't understand why people always got to compare artists. Bonham was someone very special behind that drum kit, no doubt about it. Irreplacable as he was one very important part of the Zeppelin sound. He just was unique in what he did with the rest of the band. His wasn't really technically amazing, but he had feelings in his playing; groove, improvisation, intensive, and creativity. And personally I admire his basspedal use. :)
If Bonham wouldn't have existed, and Zeppelin was formed with another drummer, maybe they'd be as huge as they're now, maybe not, who knows, but they'd have a different sound in their music. The rest of the band stated that without Bonham they wouldn't have been as huge. But that's really not the point. I'm really glad Zeppelin had Bonham, because that Led Zeppelin was brilliant and amazing. Being an influence to a lot of drummers, to professional drummers and amateur drummers; meaning he had to be more than just a "good drummer". Well that's just my opinion anyway.  8)

Led Zeppelin 02 Arena Live Album Release Date Revealed?

It looks like Led Zeppelin‘s legions of fans may be getting an early Christmas present this year. According to Britain’s Sun newspaper, the powerhouse English blues rockers will release their London 02 Arena show on DVD, Blu-ray and CD this Nov. 22.
 
The project was recorded and filmed at Led Zeppelin’s reunion gig in 2007, which featured Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, son of the late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. In a show staged to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, the legendary musicians ripped through a set that included classics like ‘Good Times, Bad Times,’ ‘Dazed and Confused,’ ‘Black Dog’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ finishing up with ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Rock and Roll.’
 
Now it appears the long-rumored official release of that concert is actually set to see the light of day. ‘That Metal Show’ co-hosts Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine have been hinting at big Zeppelin news, and while the band have made no announcement, they  have been teasing fans with a countdown on their Facebook page. There is speculation that the band will have a big announcement on Thursday, which is perhaps not coincidentally the fifth anniversary of the day they announced the 02 Arena show. The group updated the countdown by posting a II this morning, and have also posted a teaser clip to YouTube that appears to be the lead-in to ‘Good Times, Bad Times,’ the opening song from the 02 gig.
 
A source allegedly told the Sun the project is a done deal, saying, “Jimmy has been in the studio making sure everything is perfect. The band want it to remain true to their exceptionally high standards. It’s coming out on November 22 as part of a simultaneous global release.”

Plant’s Led Zep 2014 reunion tease

Robert Plant has teased fans by hinting that he might be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion in 2014.
 
And he says the band were over several years before the death of John Bonham brought their career to an end in 1980.
 
Followers believed more tours and even new music might be on the cards when Led Zep played a one-off show featuring Jason Bonham in 2007, released last year as Celebration Day. But the singer refused to take part, leaving Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones to return to their own musical careers.
 
However, Plant insists he’s not entirely responsible for the band’s lack of activity. He tells Australia’s 60 Minutes: “The two other guys are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me… I’m not the bad guy.
 
“You need to see the Capricorns – I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”
 
He lost five-year-old son Karac in 1977 while Led Zep were on tour and the tragedy led him to plan a career beyond the band until Bonham coerced him into coming back. “I was very sceptical about thinking about whether I had the right to be a parent and go back into that world,” says the singer. “When I lost our boy I applied to see if I could get a role as a teacher. I wanted to be around, a way to enjoy children at the peak of the time before they’re spoilt by the ways of our world.
 
“I always thought, ‘There’s another thing I can do.’ I was detached. I’d left it. But it’s a terrible drug being a good singer.
 
“John Bonham came round in a six-door limousine that he could barely get down the country lane. He had a chauffeur’s hat. He’d sit in the front and I’d be three doors back. He’d talk to me through the intercom – and we were only going to the pub. He’d say, ‘Come on, Percy, you know you can do it, you know you’ll have a great time,’ And so, back I went.”
 
But even in 1977 Plant believed Led Zep had had their day. “We explored lot of music in those days,” he reflects. “But by the time Bonzo drew me back in, it was over anyway. We’d done what we had to do. The world had changed. Other people had arrived and it was the beginning of a whole new movement. It was like we’d lost the keys to the kingdom.”
