Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 9:46am Ken From Hyde Park:

In the 80s, as I got ready for work each morning, I'd play part of a cassette whereon I had the first two LZ albums. A couple of days to get through Side A, then a couple more through Side B and back to Side A again. Did not grow tired of that routine.

as Willie Dixon wrote "i can't quit you baby" i don't think he's ripping off anyone there, unless you consider Howlin' Wolf's singing style influence ripping him off.

Saw the Dickies, Ramones and Iggy Pop on the same bill in Chicago, circa 1986.

This does lead me to wonder if any Dread Zeppelin lies ahead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 10:16am coelacanth:

zep stole the music for the lemon song from killing floor, but the lyrics are mostly stolen from a Robert Johnson song. (i forget which)
Avatar Thu. 9/1/16 10:18am Chris M.:

@Chris from DC: don't worry no Dread Zep!
@coelacanth: it's actually a lot of different blues songs in one

one of the biggest challenges of putting this show together was deliberately using only one Coalesce track.

I know this is blasphemy around here but Heart does a fantastic "Black Dog"
  Thu. 9/1/16 11:21am JPJ:

@DeemerDave. Heart does a lot of Zeppelin covers extremely well. Their "Battle of Evermore" is really great.

Deemer, I used to always like them in their "Lady Led Zeppelin" days.
  Thu. 9/1/16 11:22am jt:

Now that I think about it, Led Zeppelin was the best cover band, ever!

Excellent choice Polyus

seriously? didnt enjoy the coda on 'thats the way'? - ... used to rush home from school in third grade to play the zeppelin 3 record. just the thought of what i would later learn was called 'print through' at the start of the immigrant song would get me all wound up!

Marcel, probably. The MPs screwed around as much as the Replacements, but they could actually play, and were way more consistent.
