    I was watching some Them Crooked Vultures footage on YouTube last week... JPJ is such a joy to watch. Glad I saw them, but wish I saw them more than once. (Also wish they released more than one album).

    So f’n good. 

    Alain Johannesburg, JPJ, Josh Hommes, Dave Grohl... what a lineup. 

    Always loved the Zeppelin feel to Reptiles.

    I am surprised at how good they were but also surprised that Page never seemed to maintain his presence.  His writing and playing both fell off after LZ.
    Don’t forget about the Firm  :). I actually saw them in concert. 
    So odd that you bring this up because I never knew of this group until their song Radioactive popped up on a random play list last night. I started a track radio playlist to Gimme Some Lovin' on YouTube music and it was like the 20th song. I was like, I know this voice, but not this song. Just spent the last 30 minutes reading about the group. Crazy. 
    It's a hopeless situation...

    It's funny because I barely remember that concert. I think I went only knowing Radioactive and not much else. However, I went because I really wanted to see Jimmy Page play live and thought it would be my only chance, as it was.

    Solo for Outrider and then with Plant on that 95 tour.

    I got the cassettes for each of the The Firm and for Mean Business when they were released. But I was obsessed with Zep back then.

    I saw them as well.  He did have some decent stuff with the Firm but I was referring more to his playing getting sloppy.

    By the time Outrider came out it seemed like he gave up trying to be creative.

    think the sloppy play was the dope.

    I think he was pretty much washed up by In Through. But it's still surprisig that Plant managed to stay prolific while Jimmy became basically irrelevant in producing new material.

    I know most are sick of Stairway, but this is a cool video of Jimmy describing recording it.

    their catalog is the gift that keeps on giving. all the remasters etc.....

    I cant tell you how many times I bouggt the ssme shit over the years.

    you could say the same for JPJ then too. but he fucking kills it on vultures.

    Their catalogue is one of the great journeys in music, perhaps only surpassed by The Beatles.

    This is a great compilation. Battle of Evermore might be my favorite. Thanks to my local library for having this.

    This was the first Zep album I ever bought. Then it escalated from there - especially after I heard Zep II. Masterpiece.

    I love this one.



  • As an FYI for all interested parties...Physical Graffiti turned 45 years old yesterday.

    And Jimmy was not washed up on In Through The Out Door. He was a full blown junkie is all. And John was a full blown alcoholic. We were going to lose one of them. It was inevitable...

    Great record. Interesting info. some rockers avoid that stuff and it consumes others. Glad a lot lived through it.

    This popped up today if any of you are bootleg freaks. Kind of interesting how this show  keeps getting pieced together.  I sent it to my buddy who is literally a Zep live expert (it's sick...) and he replied with,  "Malcolm and Angus were there".
