don't blame me for the spelling...  :110:

I don't have any bootlegs but I wish I did. 

Not Zep, but Geri Lou was born on 6/18/69, the same day as a Who show @ the Fillmore.

PS. the Immigrant Song is the best driving song ever... if only it was longer.

yeah thats a good song too...i disagree with the second part though....I am a HUGE zeppelin/ robert plant fan/ know it all i guess....and robert was very serious about zep...he considers it to be one of the best things he's done in his life.  He is also a great vocalist, in my opinion the best.  He had so much talent and he really felt his music


He was a good vocalist yah but as for knowing music or music theory he was lost compared to Page and Jones. Also he lacked instrumental talent besides the harp. Im not saying he wasnt important but I prefer the other members of Zepp. personally. Again though, no plant no zepp. so its all good :)

I concour. He had that distinct alto voice that was really popular all of the sudden. In fact you can contribute all the 80's metal bands that used the higher pitched singing style to Plant becuase he made it cool. At some points it almost turns falsetto. I remember one time watching one of the way later concerts of him performing Stairway and it was so sad becuase he had ruined his voice at that time or just for that concert it was bad. He couldnt hit the same notes and his voice was in a mid range. Still cool guy. This lady at work was kinda crazy and looked like plant so we called her plant. She would talk to herself and just was insane basically.

well his voice was great up to 72' and at the 73' concerts it was just waaaaaaaay over used adn really hoarse and scratchy.  But sonce there wasnt any tours in 74', buy 75' his voice was mosty healed and he sounded great(like earls court shows) and by 77' the same 73' incident happened again...It most likely had something to do with his 75' car accident though.  After his son died in 77' he had almost 2 years to heal it up again, so he sounded really good at the knebworth 79' shows....and that was almost basically the end, cause of the death of john bonham in 80' and some solo stuff i dont like, but his newest album mighty rearranger i really like, and at the concert last summer he sounded fantastic!  So anyways, my whole point is, Robert has always been a great vocalist, probably the best in my opinion.  And I forgot to add one little thought, a lot of people forget that your voice does change with age and im guessing matures as you become older.  When Rob started singing back in 66' he was only 18 years old, and when zep started he was 20, and I dont know for sure, but 20 is still pretty young, and i think he probably still had a little more growing up to do w/ his voice, and  thats why it changed so much over the years, putting so much stress on it as he was still trying to develop it.
 Well, those are my thoughts..sometimes i get a little carried away with my zeppelin-ness :002:

sounds like me and TOOL.  They are personally my favorite band, although I still consider Zep the best band of all time, overall.

My wife had front row seats to see them in Houston way back when.  She still talks about it.  They introduced and played "a song from their new album" and went into Stairway to Heaven.  I'm still friggin' jealous.

Yes, I really enjoy the Beatles too.

I also have a passion for all types of jazz and 40's swing too... but this is the led sled, I don't want to hijack the thread... :058:
