Here’s a hint. They’re too freaking old. Plant’s voice cannot hold up to the test of time.
I saw Zep six times in the 70’s and it was an awesome experience.
While I would hate to see Plant go the way of Rod Stewart (Atlantic City, 4pm so the seniors can see him and he can get to bed by 7) I wouldn’t mind seeing plant to contemporary stuff.
As for Page, he did a couple of soundtracks that were decent. To me, he will always be the mystical, drug addled guitarist who played better acoustic than electric.(IMHO)

So Plant’s just another cookie-cutter leftwinger? Not surprising but it’s too bad he couldn’t be more like Bob Dylan or something.

I was at one of the Zepplin concerts in the Filmore West in San Francisco in 1969. Still the best concert ever.

I ******g hate Jan Wenner and Rolling Stone. Plant sounds pretty down to earth. The royalties they must make from songs played on the radio for the last 30 years must be insane.
Jimmy Page supposedly has a very nice house near one of my offices. He shops at a place a 2 blocks away according to someone I know.
I always though J.P. Jones was the most underrated member.

Love Robert Plant but I’m sorry that he can’t belt it out like he used to.
I watched a Biography the other night on the BEE GEES. True talent. There is a lot to be proud of to be able to carry your music from the 60’s to the new millennium. Unlike the Stones, they are not pathetic.

I grew up listening to Led Zeppelin as they became popular. I didn't realize until much later in life that they blatantly plagiarized some of their biggest hits. I wonder what the descendants of Bobby Parker, Jake Holmes, Leadbelly, Memphis Minnie, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bert Jansch, and Blind Willie Jackson would think of LZ. The song, Taurus by Spirit, was the crowning example of their thievery.
I wonder where the RIAA was when this happened?

My friends and I were huge Zep fans until they released “In Through The Out Door,” which every one of us hated. It was like Zeppelin Disco.... ungh!

I saw LZ twice on their '77 tour. It was outdoors at the Oakland Coliseum. Not so good. I saw Allison Krauss back in 2002. She has a wonderful voice.
The next show I hope to see is Hot Tuna, I can hardly wait.

Anyone seen his live show lately? He’ll be here next month and I’m thinking about going.
