I hear Led Zeppelin is close to making a decision on a new singer and putting out some feelers about headlining all the major festivals. I think they would be perfect for Coachella. And it would be absolutely massive compared to past years.

I just wonder who they are going to get to sing. Personally I believe Lenny Wolf is the only logical choice.

Please discuss.

I hear Led Zeppelin is close to making a piss-poor decision on a new singer and are delusional for putting out some feelers about headlining all the major festivals. I'm so fucking whack for thinking they would be perfect for Coachella. And it would be an absolutely massive fuck up; compared to my face.

I just wonder who they are going to get to fart. Personally I believe derp is the only logical choice.

Please delete.

If Plant sang with them it would be an all time epic Coachella moment.

If Plant does not sing I am not interested.

Waste of a headliner if Plant didn't sing.

How the fuck do you think a new Zeppelin singer is a good idea?

Van Halen, Foreigner, Styx, INXS, Journey, a lot of the great all time bands sound just fine with a new singer.

Personally I would also like the U.S. debut of Coverdale Page but I know it's too much to hope for.

zeppelin is one of my absolute most fucking favorite bands ever but no plant - no zep

of course i would watch it but without half as much excitement as the full lineup and IMO its not a headliner anymore without plant

its a subheadliner for sure

All 4 members/estate have to agree to any usage of the LZ name.

Even if JPJ and JP do anything they'd be wise enough to use another name even if they were clear to use "LZ".

Them Crooked Vultures is better than anything Page could ever come up with in the studio at this point. He's let his chops slide and is nearing his 70th birthday. Last time he fully produced an album was nearly 2 decades ago.

Zep is one of my favorite bands of all time hands down, but I think I would be utterly disappointed if I saw them live. Just get some of the fantastic bootlegs from the 70's, get really high, and watch them at your house, it will be a better time.

It's threads like this that make me think people just like to complain. I fail to see how Plant, Page, Jones and Jason Bonham headlining Coachella and playing Zeppelin songs would somehow suck. If that happens and you're unhappy about it there's just no pleasing you. It's led fucking zeppelin.

It would be cool I guess.... unless it sounded bad, and then it would be the biggest letdown ever. I dont think I'm willing to take that risk, and I dont think the band is willing to take that risk.

One of the reasons that Zep is still immensely huge is the fact that they went away when right after they hit their peak. Alot of other bands that killed it back in the 70's weren't so fortunate. The list is huge but Rolling Stones, Rush, and Yes really come to mind as bands that would be even more popular today if they shut it down somewhere in the 80's.

But, out of curiosity I googled, "many brokendolls..."

Why am i so afraid or broken dolls? is it weird that im terrified at the sight of them?

ever since i was a lil child ive been terrified of broken dolls...not just dolls but broken ones...does this mean anything?

Answerer 1
The condition is more like later in childhood when emotions of an upcoming period of adolescence was coming and a separation of childhood plays were to be set aside. Insecurities are undoubtedly present and these items give you comfort. many people have taken up hobbies related to these chidhood references.
Answerer 2
That's called a phobia. You need to confront someone trustworthy about your problem. If the problem isn't resolved then I recommend that you see a psychiatrist! Don't worry, many people have phobias! It's normal to have at least one phobia.

Hope this helps! xx

O2 was better than most shows 1975-1980. Especially the later shows could get dodgy.

Try finding a vintage Kashmir better than the O2 performance.

Doesn't matter, I saw P&P in the 90's and loved it. Saw JPJ front row at TCV. I consider LZ off my checklist.

I agree with you. There are too many loser ass troll fanboy yuppies on these boards with only negativity to speak of, unless its there current obsession. Led Zeppelin in any incarnation would be pretty bad ass, even if they are old. The Who ROCKED at Nokia theatre and those guys are just as old.

Wonder if they would be considered as a headliner? Though I've seen The Who 3 times without Entwistle now and they were never better than average.

Honestly, get some of the classic remastered audio boots that are just complete filth. Jimmy used to play complete improve and so above himself he would fuck up because he was just trying to shred beyond his ability. Thats so fucking awesome imo.

Sure if we got a Zep concert it would be something, they have the best wall to wall live catalog ever assembled. Would they do it justice? One of the reasons I hold Zep above any classic band including Floyd and the Beatles is because they make their songs sound WAY better live than they do on the album. Would they still be able to do that? If not, I don't even want to see it.

Why does this make them a better band? Your live show is exciting and shows off your chops as a musician and entertainer, but your albums are what you leave behind. In 100 years when people are trying to discover 20th century rock what they will be discovering is the album, not the live show. The album is the art. It's the painting/writing/sculpture that people will dissect and discuss forever. I can see Zeppelin once if I'm lucky, but I can listen to Houses of the Holy as many times as I want.

In my opinion, the measure of a band is their collection of albums.

We can agree to disagree. While its great to have good albums, the live show is what is what personifies that explicit moment of greatness. None of us pay thousands of dollars to travel across the country to listen to an album...

I respect a band that can make a great studio album, but then destroy their own work in a live setting. Granted, this is a small fraction of professional musicians, but when its done well, its crushing. Tool, Chemical Brothers, Radiohead, these are guys that can slay their collection live while making the best studio albums of the past 20 years.

From second hand experience, I can say that Zep was like this, great albums, even better live. Who listens to Pink Floyd or Beatles bootlegs? Why would anyone when the albums are the same or better....

From Rolling Stone (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/robert-plant-opens-up-about-led-zeppelin-reunion-failed-follow-up-with-alison-krauss-20110106):


In the new issue of Rolling Stone - on stands and online in the digital archives now (subscription required) Robert Plant explains to writer Stephen Rodrick why he was unwilling to keep performing with Led Zeppelin after their 2007 reunion concert.

"It was an amazing evening," Plant says. "The preparations for it were fraught and intense, but the last rehearsal was really, really good, for all that it represented and all that we were trying to capture. But I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it...It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest. Who cares? I know people care, but think about it from my angle - soon, I'm going to need help crossing the street."

Other highlights from the piece:

- Plant and Alison Krauss began crafting a follow-up to their 2007 surprise smash LP Raising Sand, but it didn't go well. "The sound wasn't there," says Plant. "Alison is the best. She's one of my favorite people. We'll come back to it."

- Plant recently flew to Morocco and recreated a legendary trip he went on with Jimmy Page in 1978 where the duo wrote "Kashmir." "I wanted to go back and take that road," Plant says. "It just heads all the way down the coast. It was fucking amazing."

- Tony Blair's religious awakening horrified Plant to the point that he stopped writing new songs. "The last time I lifted a pen was when Tony Blair became a Roman Catholic," he says. "We were supposedly going into the Gulf, determined to sort the world out in the name of tyranny. Then, once he had to leave the throne, he became a Roman Catholic and became a peace envoy in the Middle East. That's when I knew the world was completely upside down."

- Plant is endlessly annoyed by his musical peers (he won't name names) who do little besides replay their old hits. "There's nothing worse than a bunch of jaded old farts, and that's a fact," he says. "People who have written their story they've gotten to the point where nothing moves. I don't deal in that, and I don't deal with anybody who deals in that."

I also agree to disagree. I understand your point and don't necessarily disagree with it. I love Tool, Radiohead, (prob my fav 2 bands of the 00s) ETC and their live shows are great. I still think that an album is the measure of the band. Dark Side of the Moon was on the Billboard 200 for 17 years. It speaks a lot to the album that today, 35 years after its release, it still connects to people. This is what art is. We still go to the Louvre and look at the Mona Lisa and still connect with it. We will still be downloading DSOTM and listening to it in 50 years.

Live acts are great but they are passing. They also have to come from recording. Recording is tediously checking your work, making sure you have everything perfect, making sure you are putting out exactly what you want to put out. Your record is representative of what you are about. A live show is often spontaneous and will be over in 2 hours.

With Zeppelin, I think they have a great live show because the sum of its parts are second to none. With Floyd, I think the whole is better than the sum of the parts. That's what makes their albums great and meaningful.

We are really splitting hairs because no doubt Zep is one of the best bands of all time, and they make great albums. And in no way am I downplaying Zep or their influence. I just think in the long run the show is more fun, but the album is really what it's all about.

Oh.

http://www.nme.com/news/led-zeppelin/66239

The surviving members of Led Zeppelin have refused to rule out another reunion.

Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones made a rare public appearance today (September 21) to launch their new Celebration Day concert film of their 2007 show at the London's 02 Arena. After a screening of the film at the Odeon West End, the bandmates answered questions from the assembled press.

But when pressed on the possibility of coming together again for more shows, the band remained evasive. When asked if the 02 show had excited them enough to regroup once more, Jimmy Page answered, "Can I just ask you all if you enjoyed the film?"

When the journalist in question retorted by asking if he could have his question answered, Robert Plant replied, "That would be kiss and tell."

Elsewhere in the Q&A session, Plant declared that, "Mumford and Sons excite me."

The DVD release comes five years after their legendary 02 performance, which saw them reunite to honour late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. The surviving members were joined by Jason Bonham - the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a two-hour set, which included classics 'Whole Lotta Love,' 'Rock And Roll,' 'Kashmir,' and 'Stairway To Heaven'.

As many as 20 million people applied for tickets to the gig - the band's first headline show in 27 years – but only 18,000 were lucky enough to win in the lottery.

Celebration Day will screen in cinemas from October 17, following premieres on September 13. The film will then get a general DVD release on November 19.

The tracklisting for Celebration Day is as follows:

'Good Times Bad Times'
'Ramble On'
'Black Dog'
'In My Time Of Dying'
'For Your Life'
'Trampled Under Foot'
'Nobody's Fault But Mine'
'No Quarter'
'Since I've Been Loving You'
'Dazed And Confused'
'Stairway To Heaven'
'The Song Remains The Same'
'Misty Mountain Hop'
'Kashmir'
'Whole Lotta Love'
'Rock And Roll'

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has previously ruled out another reunion of the band, saying in a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone: "I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it... It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest. Who cares? I know people care, but think about it from my angle - soon, I'm going to need help crossing the street."
