    I remember the Stones being old and wrinkly when I saw them @ Rich Stadium in 1981.

    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    I would have no interest.

    Saw them in 2003 during the SARS concert in Toronto and they were crap.

    Being a kid of the 80ís itís hard not to like the music you are brought up with. I wouldnít say any of them were copy cats of Zeppelin. Maybe Whitesnake. But even that is stretching it.

    Iím sure the kids of the 90s, 00s, 10s think the same thing.
    Right on!! Jamze and I had the exact same kind of discussion with his bucket list concert seeing KISS. I was a 60's child, so, of course my first exposure to music was the Beatles. I was too young for Elvis, and although I appreciate his culture changing super stardom, really do not have a appreciation to him like some of my relatives that were 10 years older...growing up in the 50's.

    And, yeah....I the "copy cat" Zeppelin crack is not necessarily meant to be accurate.....just giving the second greatest band ever (sorry, the Beatles are unquestionably the best in my opinion) their due.

    Thankfully my kids (25 & 28 years old) keep me exposed to the more recent stuff....but, they also share my appreciation with the classic rock that defined the 60's & 70's and 80's.

    When they were really young and still in child car seats....they would beg me to out on "the aahhhhhh song". The Immigrant Song, of course. We would all sing at the top of our lungs with Robert Plant.

    I've got to check out Get The Led Out. My last chance of seeing Led Zep was lost when they canceled the Buffalo date.

    Fun times!

    You didn't see them at the Aud in '73?? All the cool people were there.

    I also saw them in Tampa in 1976, but they only played two songs before the monsoon. They canceled and you got your money back by mailing in the ticket stub.

    I also don't know how anyone could call Van Halen "a hair band". As a matter of fact, Scorpions, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Journey, Metallica, Billy Idol, Triumph, Guns and Roses were not really in that genre either. You could classify them as "second wave metal"....maybe, if you wanted to put them into a nice tidy category and Billy Idol came from Generation X which was right in the middle of the punk movement.

    The "hair band" genre, at least from my perspective, were formula hard rockers that relied on fashion instead of original music or musicianship to excite an audience.

    They didn't even try to push the envelope musically, just with their womanizing, drug taking, alcoholism and outrageousness.
    Alrighty then

    Looking back....I feel like an idiot for missing that '73 concert. I have no idea (now) why I did not go.

    "Scorpions, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Journey, Metallica, Billy Idol, Triumph, Guns and Roses", are absolutely not my cup of tea. The only thing I like from Aerosmith (not actually the band, just Steven Tyler) is when he teamed up with one of the best guitarists in history...Carlos Santana....in Just Feel Better.



    Other than that....I truthfully cannot stand anything that Aerosmith has ever done. Same with Metallica, the Scorpions & Triumph....just grates me like nails on a chalkboard.


    Journey had some nice tunes. It was great when they used a Journey song to end the Sopranos.

    The "hair band" genre, at least from my perspective, were formula hard rockers that relied on fashion instead of original music or musicianship to excite an audience. I enjoyed the music, didn’t really care for the fashion.

    My son was brought up on Zeppelin. He now enjoys going to Get The Led Out concerts too.

    By the time I fell in love with Zeppelin, around 1982, Bonham was already dead. Still have the original album that turned me into a Zep head. Physical Graffiti.

    Here’s the only space my wife lets me have in the house.28081F9A-013F-4627-B5DD-67C5724E0439.jpeg

    All Zeppelin related. Action figures, my original vinyl, The new remastered vinyl Page did a few years ago. All the books. Hot Wheels, Clock, mini guitars, The Object and Jim Kelly.

    Yeeeehaaaaaaw. Led Zep and Jim Kelly!!! Rock it!

    When my oldest daughter was 14-15 years old and taking guitar lessons, she learned some Led Zep songs. The first time she surprised me with her rendition of Ten Years Gone, it made me cry!

    We can still be fiends. I don't expect my friends to have good taste in music.
    If you want to hear a true Zepelin rip off band, check out Greta Van Fleet. Makes me sick.

    I always thought their last album was unusual and quite good and because of Bonham's death never got the full recognition it should have (despite it getting good airplay in the day). My favorite is Led Zepplin III however.

    In Through the Outdoor is underrated. Fool In The Rain is my favorite currently from that album.

    All their records took turns being a favorite at one time in my life. Currently itís probably Houses of the Holy.

    Bron Y Aur Stomp from LZ3 currently my favorite from that album.
