I always associate Led Zeppelin with musicianship, and in that regard they are unparalleled. They definitely can't be pegged as a guitar band because of the ever-present drum machine that is Bonzo (hey, look down there)... and the vocal presence of Plant. Jones is probably the George Harrison of the band, where he has the most technical and polished musical pedigree. I see the other three as raw and uninhibited, and maybe that's why he (and other bass players for that matter) gets overlooked. Although I must say, John Paul Jones is the most involved rhythm generator in history, having more than just the bass playing role. The two great Johns, Entwhistle and Jones, were the cog wheels that drove their collective machines.

I hope that in my previous posts I did not overlook his performances... although I must admit, my Jimmy Page fan bias might have something to do with it.

Glad that more people can enjoy this music... which I would also qualify as beautiful.

There were definitely some moments while watching the DVD where I was like at either the bass playing or the organ playing. John Paul Jones kicks ass, hands down.

I finally broke down and bought the DVD. I am glad I did! The Royal Albert Hall show alone makes it worth the price.

Random observations on RAH: Bonzo is amazing on Moby Dick. The band looks very cool dressed in their jeans and tennis shoes, etc. --- which helps give the concert a very raw feel. Robert Plant gives a little double head nod before Dazed and Confused which makes him look like a boy acknowledging the audience at his prep school recital...lol. What Is and What Should Never Be is now perhaps my favorite Zeppelin tune.

I am quite enjoying the extras, particularly the Danmarks Radio Show. Imagine sitting in a small studio with about 40 other people and seeing perhaps the greatest rock band ever jamming right in front of you!

Haven't had a chance to sit down and watch both DVD's from start to finish. I'm enjoying them part by part!

It's to a castle I will take you, where what's to be, they say will be.

Oh, and since we have so many guitar gods here waxing poetically about Jimmy Page , I just wanna put in a word for Plant. He's fooking great.

Pubcrawler if you've liked that material so far... you should check out In My Time Of Dying on the Second disc. Great, great Blues tune. It's really interesting to see their metamorphosis from a very shy performance band, to a very expressive and experimental rock tour machine. The article I mentioned in Guitar World echoes the same sentiment...

I just want to say, that no one has recognized the countless number of groupies who inspired Led Zeppelin. Let us not forget their work behind the scenes... often during the show.

Glad I could help.

As for your Led Zeppelin crown, maybe one day I will contest it... but in the meantime let's enjoy the music. And our kick-ass avatars.

Glad you enjoy.



PS- congrats on the 69th post!!!

I just had to post this, as I'm not sure what to think of it... is it a tribute, or a satire?

It's pretty friggin' hilarious, that's what it is.





They could have at least used spell check.
