Probably cos the Zep tour is off and a Jackson 5 reunion awaits...

Not a surprise .


A friend of mine here at the board was kind enough to send me a copy of the O2 LZ gig and I was ' bored to tears ' !!!


Pagey was great but Plant can no longer hit the High Notes and looked completely ' lost ' .


I immediately had to run and put on The Rolling Stones , Rio DVD and The Who , Omaha DVD before I fell into shock .


Word -- to all your sweet SWEET Bippys !

Factory Girl I saw that Robert is touring with A. Krauss, but it didn't register as a death nail to LZ tour until now.

DAMN IT. I, for one, am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.

I respect Robert Plan saying "no Thanks" to all that $$$$$, most musicians couldn't have done it.

But, I side with Pagey & John Paul Jones. DAMN IT!

You can have the money, pal!

As I was going to reply in the other thread, I think that's a harbinger of the Jackson 5 reunion tour.

FG, I share the emotion Zep have always been a legend in my book and to actually see them live, well... I had great expectations about this
3rd March 2008 08:02 PM
Bitch OK I went out and bought the new CD with Robert Plant & Alison Krausse. It is the exact opposite of Led Zeppelin music ~ and together they sing as soft and sweet as little bird's voices. Seriously, its angelic, and it sounds effortless and simply magical. After one listen I bought a ticket to see them at the MSG theatre in June. Not usually my style of music, but its beautiful.

mojoman hagar could play plant.

led sam?
sam zeppelin?

Hey FG! I feel the same way sister. Bummer.

And I didn't have any luck getting Plant/Krauss tickets when they went on GA sale this morning for their show at Red Rocks. Couldn't pull anything remotely close. Getting Row 40 when I am in at 10am sharp really sucks.

Well, they proved they could make millions piss their pants over just the thought of a show regardless of how it actually sounds. With his ego still boosted, Plant decided he would rather pursue what's he artistically interested in in the year 2008.

CrissCrossMind Simply answer ... Plant can tour with a 36 sweet looking blonde ... or some grumpy old man with 'white' hair ... no one ever said Plant was stupid ... plus The Legend Remains The Same ... CCM

I haven't heard the Plant/Krauss cd, but I suspect its not my cup of vodka. I've seen Page and Plant, and they are AWESOME!! I also saw Page with the Black Crowes, and it was great!!! I saw JP Jones and Plant solo.

I'm most concerned that Pagey stays musically active and tours.
