Led Zeppelin are one of Britain's finest exports , of all the classic songs there's one still sends a chill up my spine when I hear the opening riff , here is Kashmir from Celebration Day and to be honest a better or tighter live version you will not hear , it's a great song done greatly.


Now if only Robert Plant would stop playing the Diva and agree to a proper tour before it's too late , give the fans what they want.

Jason Bonham rocks

Whoa!

You can hear Young Bonham's drumming actually pull the band together in the first couple of seconds.

That'll do!



Man! That really is a good version.

All will be revealed, gortex, all will be revealed.

Always been a led zep fan-Bron y Aur Stomp is my favorite.
Its about Robert Plant's Dog,who was a merle named Strider.



He immortalized that dog with that song.

Most excellent! Thanks for posting. That's the first time I've watched them play with Jason, he really does a good job of filling in for his dad doesn't he? I was impressed with how great each of them still sounds. I remember thinking in the '80s that Robert Plant had lost it... nah, changed my mind.

I saw them for just a few songs at the end of a show in the mid '70s at the old Capital Center in MD. Still one of my favorites.

Me too, at Oakland Coliseum, Ca. I literally saw Elders of the Gentle Race, two of them, slowly floating right over the heads of the crowd on the field. Most compelling spiritual encounter…

Never forget it.

I have always been a Zepplin fan and this is the one song if I was marooned on an island that I could listen to over and over again. Just Zep at their most awesomeness.

It a great song, I listened to Zep a lot in the late 80's.

My favourite material to wear is Cashmere and Kashmiri chicken is one of my favourite curries. It's a great song title.

Killer version! Thanks for sharing!
My fav is Tangerine. I still crank that song quite a bit.

Awesome, those were the days, huh?

I played in a band in the early '80s called Matrix that played half Zep and the other half originals. Lots of good times. I was known back then for being able to nail Plant's vocals. Wow, where'd that 30 years go?

Indeed. Concert going back then was a genre all its own. At least in the crowd I hung with.

Buying advance tickets to see anyone was 15 bucks. Tank of gas, 10 bucks. Consumables, 10 bucks.

Rock on!

Oh yes, I forget what I paid for tickets back then, but less than 20 dollars. I can't remember what they cost now, but I hear stories about it now and then, and no thanks for me. Besides, my best shows are behind me anyhow.

And I still remember my first concert back in '73. It was Black Sabbath and a no-name band. I think they were called Bedlam. Well, that concert was general admission and it was crazy! I was really close to the stage and people were just massed on the floor with blankets, throwing Frisbees, smoking all kinds of things... It was a real eye opening experience, that's for sure.

Never saw them. Bought all their LPs though. Dug War Pigs and Paranoid among others. Wore that vinyl out.

Many fond memories of the era. Many missing ones I am sure. To bad I can't place your band Matrix, it squirms at the edge of my recollect but has been supplanted by the movies of the same name.

Cool choice of name for a band. Why did you pick it back then, if I may?

I started playing guitar listening to Sabbath and picking out all Toni Iommi's licks. I also have a lot of fond memories of the whole time.

You wouldn't have heard of my band if you were in CA. We were a local east coast show. The movies came long afterward.

I thought of the name back in something like 1981. I was just looking through a dictionary and came across it. When I read the definition I was struck with how appropriate it would be for a band - "birthing place" or "place something originates" or something like that in my old Webster's.

At least you tried. I learned music as a kid with piano and clarinet, later Bass guitar. I was in a no name band for a few months (in a reform school). We did one performance at a dance there. No one outside that facility had any idea we ever existed.

What a gas that was, though. I did a solo. I was a misfit rock star for one night.

Did you ever do warm up for…?

I never got to open for anyone big, but the guys I played with in the late '70s did. That was after I left in late '79 and got married and had kids. We played the same circuit with a precursor band of KIX and an early singer of theirs joined our band. Then after I left they played full time all over into the mid '80s and I know they played some shows opening up for some of the big hairs acts of the time.

It was only a couple years after getting married that I got the bug again bad enough to get back into it and we played a fair amount in some decent local places. Another group I played with even had some airplay (but that was just an interview and they played one song I wrote
). We used to play a lot with a band that's still around now who achieved modest success (real modest) called 69 band. The guitar player for that band always tells people that I could have been famous but I didn't want to. That's not really true, I just kind of got sidetracked by life...

It was all a lot of fun though, and I guess I always thought that I was going to really do something at some point in the future. But now the future is here and I wonder where the past went...

I listened several times, but I can't identify the moment you're referring to. Could you be a bit more specific, please?

Sure, the big cymbal-crash at 13 seconds.

Thanks for that gortex! They've aged like fine wine. Page has to be the coolest looking guitar player of all time. He's also largely responsible for me picking up the guitar.

For those who want to see more of that show, here's a link.
