Robert Plant To Release New Solo Album

According to LedZeppelinNews.com, Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant has set "It's Rude To Say No" as the tentative title of his new solo album, due later this year. The CD is reportedly being produced by Buddy Miller at a studio in Nashville and will feature a guest appearance by singer-songwriter Darrell Scott, "who played such instruments as mandolin and glockenspiel" on the album. He is one of a few key players in a tight-knit band appearing on the record. Scott says of working with Plant: "Those two-plus weeks were some of the most memorable times I've ever had in the studio. The number one thing is that Robert loves music. "You think they're posing and just getting through it, but I was humbled with how Robert Plant loved the music old country, blues, rockabilly..."

    ^So basically you're saying for every album they put out, there's one good song on each, that's it, pretty ignorant...I'd say that they are one of the most influential bands ever, right up there with the Beatles. Zep isn't even one of my fav bands but I do understand the impact and greatness of their catalog, and respect their collective talents cous they wrote some epic songs.

And, as others have said, they broke up after Bonham died because Zeppelin simply wouldn't have worked without him. Okay my apologies they have more material then I give them credit for, it's just I try to forget about the 10 horrible songs for every decent one they wrote. By pointing out that they made nine albums you're just making them sound a hell of a lot worse in my opinion. Nine albums, twenty good songs, in my personal opinion I wouldn't even call that the work of a good band, much less a great one. And lmao at csrogers, yeah Zeppelin's the most influential band of all time. I guess in your world the Beatles don't exist, because to the rest of us in the real world there is obviously no band who's influence can even compare to that of the Beatles.

    Checked. To all those ranting about Plant saying no to a Led Zep reunion: face it. Led Zep is over, it has been dead since Bonzo died. It's not Led Zep without him; Page knows this, and that's why he won't do a reunion. He knows Led Zep won't return to its former glory, and wants to leave it a legend, instead of taking it up again and possibly ruining it.

    If we weren't talking on the internet and people could be put on the spot, maybe 1/20 Zepp fanboys could make 20 songs by them worth listening to. Most of the people who claim to be Zepp fans or influenced by Zepp don't know shit about the band, or their music, or music in general for that matter, and basically just say it because they're a walking cliche that tries too hard to fit in.

Otherwise I'm sure they'd have a lot more material out and would probably still be making new music today. I don't understand why people think they're so great. Plant and Page are both hacks. JPJ is the most talented member of the group by far. Zepp will never work together again because they'd destroy their reputation and Page knows it, which is also why he doesn't make any music on his own, because he's a hack, and he knows it.
    you are seriously one of the stupidest people on this earth because of "white summer, over the hills and far away, ten years after, swth, Achilles last stand and so many more tunes that are JIMMY PAGE one of the most influential guitarist of all time

    I don't know who these fake fans are that you are talking about. But I'm pretty sure that you won't find them here. Most of the people here are probably die hard fans who are keeping up to date with their hero Robert Plant, I know I am... Songs? Come back to me when you're not blurting out ludicrous statements, I can name you ALBUMS of Zep worth listening to.
    LedFender
    also, jimmy page wrote most of the songs and he produced it all... he is a musical genius with a vision that can only be compared to people like John Lennon and Paul Mcarntey...

    i really don't see how you can say a band sucks if for one, they played sold out stadiums up to 5 days in a row. thats how big they were.
    Alt-Rocker77
    Why would you want a Zeppelin Reunion? All it would do is embarrass the great run they had in the 60's and 70's. I'm happy to see Robert is making good music, and not try to make a huge wad over past nostalgia.

    KurdtStaley wrote: Lol, I'm sorry, I think Zepp wrote a few great songs but in general I think they're the most overrated band to ever play music. To really garner my respect as a band you have to make an album that I can turn on, listen to start to finish, and think the entire thing was great. With Zepp, like I said they had their masterpieces, but I think the majority of their songs are throw outs.
    Agreed. Zeppelin is amazing, but "the greatest band of all time"? Don't think so...

    He was a guitar player, he did what he had to, and he did it well. Why would he sing if he knows that Plant can do it himself? Furthermore, he is credited as the writer in almost every Zeppelin song... your ignorance... it confuses me. And about your comment on ten albums: they had nine albums during a course of 13 years and finished making music before they became parodies of themselves. I understand that you might have opinions about how much you like their music, but mixing that into such ignorant statements does not help you make your point.

    You are just as bad as those who say Led Zeppelin are crap. One person alone cannot justify "the best band ever to graze the earth in the last 100 years". That is your opinion, stop trying to force it upon other people. And then you wonder why people hate classic rock elitists, and it's because of people like you who are to stubborn to believe there is anything other than Zeppelin. Led Zeppelin is a good band, and has talent, but let people have their own opinions. If they want to say Zep is bad, let them, they're missing out on some good stuff, and thats not our problem.

    You people who say Led Zeppelin were not good are complete idiots and I would love to know who exactly your favorite bands or artists are just so i can hear what the hell I have missed since i have been alive for 23 years. They simply are the best band ever to graze the earth in the last 100 years. Led Zeppelin is THE most influential band of all time and if you ask any person or musician with a brain they will tell you the same. Every singer wants to achieve a notable fraction of Robert Plants voice and song lyrics, with the raw energy and vocal range second to none. Every guitarist can only dream to be as creative as Jimmy Page's iconic riffs and solos. He even used theramins and violin bows along with some pretty ground breaking stuff back then as far as pedal and amp output are concerned. Hell even jimi hendrix himself when asked in an interview stating how do you feel to be the greatest guitar player of all time? he said I don't know? go ask The other jimmy! Even on Zep's lesser known songs, if you just sit back and listen to the pure talent that is being sucked into your ears, then and only then you would clearly not say any of this blasphemy. Every Drummer could only hope to have the rhythym in and out of a song such as Bonham and he was unique and had a special talent to bring a song back to its original structure point after straying away into far off territory. J Paul jones was amazing as well, and some of my favorites are with him on the mandolin and the keys. Led Zeppelin have made many songs in their short time period as a band and they are the only ones smart enough to know when to call it off. They are 2nd place to the Beatles in record sales of all time. (That is without promoting) only through word of mouth and touring alone. The beatles had advertising out of their asses and have also had many more years under their belts. Your opinions may be your own but clearly you have made some idiotic statements and have no knowledge of music and the essence of what this band created! I think anything robert plants attempts is worth a look at in my opinion. Can't wait to hear it.

    You know, you have a point there. 80% of people that enjoy rock music say that Led Zep is the best ever only because they hear other people saying that. Sure Page was a good guitarist, but saying he's the greatest of all time just because of Stairway to Heaven? Or that no one tops Plant because he screams in the Immigrant Song? I respect Zeppelin, but they have some incredibly boring songs.

    This is just my opinion, but I say Page is the best guitarist because he can go from playing blues to rockabilly to folk and funk all within one concert. I don't think you say that about many other guitarists. He was very versatile, and so was the whole band. I'm not going to say Robert Plant is the greatest singer, because he isn't, but damn he was damn near one of the best.

    George Harrison at only age 14 would stay up playing his guitar until he got all of the chords exactly right and his fingers were bleeding! And One of The Beatles engineers Geoff Emerick says that in early 1966 when The Beatles were recording John's song I'm Only Sleeping, George Harrison played backwards guitar the most difficult way possible even though he could have taken an easy way,and it took him 6 hours just to do the guitar overdubs! He then made it doubly difficult by adding even more distorted gitars and Geoff says this was all George's idea and that he did all of the playing! The 1992 Rolling Stone Album Guide calls Paul a remarkable bass player and rightfully calls John & Paul the 2 greatest song writers in rock history! Both Phil Collins and Max Weinberg both Beatles fans and both praise Ringo's drumming and Phil Collins says that Ringo's great drumming on A Day In The Life can't be repeated even by him! Also on Rankopedia The Beatles are # 1 Greatest Rock Band,# 1 Greatest Most Innovative Rock Band,John &Paul are # 1 Greatest Rock Song Writers, John &Paul are on The Greatest Rock Male Vocalist list, and Paul McCartney is # 2 after John Enwistle as Greatest Rock Bass Players, John Paul Jones is # 6, and Bill Wynman is # 20! And on Digitaldreamdoor where many musicians post,The Beatles are # 1 Greatest Rock Artists,John &Paul are # 1 Greatest Rock Song Writers, they are both on The Greatest Rock Male Vocalists list, and Paul McCartney is # 8 out of 100 Greatest Rock Bass Players, John Paul Jones is # 21, and Bill Wynman is # 95! George Harrison is # 54 On The Greatest Rock Guitarists out of over 100. Award winning music professor and composer Dr.Glen Gass, who has been teaching a course on The Beatles and rock music at Indiana University since 1982. On his web site for his course it says the main purpose of this course is to get students to have a better appreciation of this extraordinary group and their remarkable recordings. Also check out Keno's Classic Rock n Roll Site he also runs a Rolling Stones &John Lennon fan site. And he made a Top 10 List and voted and the fans voted. He voted John &Paul # 2 after Bob Dylan as Greatest Rock Song Writers, the fans voted them # 1! He voted Paul McCartney # 2 after John Entwistle as Greatest Rock Bass Player, the fans voted Paul # 3. He voted John Lennon # 2 after Keith Richards as Greatest Rock Rhythm Guitarist, and the fans voted John in a tie with Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones at # 4 .He voted John Lennon # 1 in a tie with Elvis as Greatest Male Rock Vocalist and the fans voted John # 1, he voted Paul # 6 and the fans voted him # 7. And in 2001 VH1 had a panel of well known musicans and music critcs, that voted The Beatles The Greatest Rock Band Ever, and in 2004 Rolling Stone did the same thing and several people said on message boards that Rolling Stone had a panel poll like this and The Beatles were voted # 1 again and for darn great reasons too! Nobody created as much innovative, creative, quality,critically acclaimed, popular diverse songs and albums in such a short amazing period of time as The Beatles and thats why most people know that The Beatles Are The Greatest Rock Band That Ever Was Or Will Be!! Oh and A Hard Day's Night is a great pop rock album!! And even Bob Dylan said decades ago about The Beatles early music, that their chords were outrageous, and the harmonies were wonderful and they were doing things in music that nobody had done before, and music critics of The London Times were praising their interesting and unusual chords that they used even in early songs like She Loves You & I Want To Hold Your Hand. Which were not as simple as they seemed and had clever subtleties in them. And by the way I have read some people saying on message boards that they don't think The Rolling Stones were the best technical musicians, and many even some fans have said they haven't done anything good in 30 years, and that their overrated and I have also found many people saying they hate or don't like The Rolling Stones and many people say the only Rolling Stones song they like is Paint It Black! Oh and by the way, in every major poll of The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones, The Beatles always win as # 1 even on sites and message boards that are not Beatles fan sites! And when we look at the solo career comparison of Mick Jagger's and Keith Richards solo careers with John, Paul & George's, the facts are John Lennon's first brilliant solo album, and his second great album Imagine are rightfully critically acclaimed, and I love John's Walls & Bridges album and Paul McCartney's first solo album McCartney is very good, and he played every instrument all by himself at age 27, and he played so many different instruments great! Wings 1975 Venus & Mars is a great rock album too. And he and Denny Laine are the only musicians on Paul's great 1973 Band On The Run album, which is critically acclaimed and popular, and he played every instrument by himself again on McCartney 2(although I don't like this album except for his great musicianship) in 1979, and mos

    Not only did The Beatles give The Rolling Stones one of their first hits with their rock n roll song I Wanna Be Your Man in late 1963,and they wrote it right in front of them and Keith Richards and Mick Jagger were impressed and like wow how can you write a song just like that and it motivated them to start writing their own songs. And as I already said The Rolling Stones were good friends with and fans of The Beatles. Mick Jagger was at 4 Beatles recording sessions and Keith Richards was at 2 of them with him.Also Mick Jagger was such a big Beatles fan that in May 1967 when The Beatles were redording their song Baby You're A Rich Man he came there and stood on the sidelines to watch and listen to them recording it. His name is also on the tape box and he likely sang at the end verses. The Beatles remastered albums sold much more 40 years after their break up than The Rolling Stones remastered albums and they are still together! The Beatles have the best selling album of the last decade with their CD 1. And Brian Jones played the saxaphone on the strange Beatles song, You Know My Name Look Up The Number and he and Mick Jagger's girlfriend at the time Marriane Faithful contributed sound effects on the song Yellow Submarine. As this guy Sal66 who has also posted on sites debunking ignorant cr*p about The Beatles has rightfully pointed out, The Beatles wrote,played and recorded I Feel Fine (which The All Music Guide says has brilliant,active ,difficult guitar leads and riffs) in the Fall of 1964 which was the first use of feedback guitar on a pop rock record and it also had a prominent guitar riff throughout this very good song almost a year *before* The Rolling Stones's Satisfaction came out. And on John's great Norwegian Wood recorded in the Fall of 1965,George Harrison was the first to play a sitar on a pop rock song and it was released on their great album Rubber Soul in December and then in May 1966 The Rolling Stones song Paint It Black came out with Brian Jones playing a sitar! And in Paul McCartney's authorized biography Many Years From Now, Mick Jagger's former girlfriend singer Marriane Faithful says that she and Mick used to go over to Paul's house a lot and hang out in his music room. She said he never went to see them at their house they always went to visit him because he was Paul McCartney.She also said that Mick was intimidated by Paul but that Paul was totally oblivious to this. Paul also says in this book that he turned Mick on to pot in his music room and he said which is funny because a lot of people would assume it was the other way around. Also Mick Jagger is quoted on a Rolling Stones fan site,timeisonourside.com saying that Keith Richards liked The Beatles because he was quite interested in their chord sequences and he says he also liked their harmonies which he said were always a slight problem for The Rolling Stones.He said Keith always tried to get the harmonies off the ground but they always seemed messy.Mick then says,that what they never really got together were Keith and Brian singing backup vocals and he said it didn't work because Keith was a better singer and to keep going,oooh,ooh,ooh(he laughs) and he said Brian liked all of those oohs which Keith had to put up with.He also said Keith was capable of much stronger vocals than ooh,ooh,ooh. On this same fan site Keith Richards is quoted from 1971 saying that The Beatles were perfect for opening doors,when they went to America they left it wide open for them and he said that The Rolling Stones could never have gone to America without them.He also said that The Beatles are so f*cking good at what they did.

    Also there is an online interview with Roger Daltry,Roger's Journey With The Who in The Sun and he was asked if The Who had screaming girls at a certain point,and he said after Can't Explain they did. He said it was the screaming teen era and every band had them on their way up.He said it was fun at first but the trouble for a performer when you are that young and inexperienced is that you start to judge your performances on the amount they scream,he said it's nonsense which is why Lennon gave up. He also said that The Who's manager turned their image overnight from scruffy rockers to Mods. If anyone still insists the false ludicrous unfortunately all too common claim that The early Beatles were ever a "boy band" then you are just further proving your ignorance.When The Beatles played live in 1963,64,65 & 66 they only had 100 watt amplifiers,no feedback monitors so they couldn't hear themselves sing and play,plus the screaming crowds and that's why they gave up touring. George Harrison says in The Beatles Anthology video series,that for their August 1965 Shea Stadium concerts, special 100 watt amplifiers were made and that they went up from only 30 watts before. Given how limited and primitive the sound systems were then,it's amazing they sounded as good as they did live. And a guy said on a message board in September, said that he too once wrongly believed that the early Beatles were a boy band like The Back Street Boys,until he got out of 7th grade.The Beatles started out playing 8 hours a night in the sleazy strip clubs of Hamburg Germany,taking speed pills to stay awake,wearing tight black leather jackets and pants,smoking and cursing on stage,and had sex with so many young women groupies including the strippers in those clubs,they were successful there. They also played successfully in the Liverpool Cavern Club for years. Even many fans of The Rolling Stones who are also Beatles fans, said on several Rolling Stones message boards,and Beatles fans said this on Beatles fan boards,that THe Beatles cleaned up image was a total fake one created by their manager,and that they know that The Beatles were just as wild as The Stones with sex and drugs in their personal lives and were friends who hung out together. There used to be an online interview with Charlie Watts from a 1973 Magazine called,Zig Zag called,The Drinking Man's Rolling Stone. He says that The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were good friends,and that they were a lot alike as people. He also said what made The Beatles so great is that they made one great album and one great single after the next. And I don't want to be on bad terms with anyone on here, and I'm not trying to bother anybody ,but I really am just trying to debunk this totally inaccurate ridiculous unfortunately common myth that The Beatles were ever a boy band,they were a great *ROCK n ROLL* band from the start! John and George especially hated Beatle Mania,and George says in The Anthology series,that it took a toll on their nervous systems,they had no life either trapped in hotel rooms most of the time. They wanted to be popular & successful as every band does,but they didn't want or ask for the hysteria.John says in his 1975 Tomorrow Show interview that the screaming wasn't doing the music any good,and that things would break down and nobody would know. The Beatles sound great on their live roof top January 1969 concert in The Let It Be Film, and the sound systems had improved by then,(although still very limited compared to today's) and there were no more screaming crowds. Paul was playing guitar and writing songs at 14 and he started soon after his beloved nurse and midwife mother Mary died of breast cancer,and he wrote the beautiful song Let It Be after he had a real seeming dream where he saw her alive again and she told him to just accept things as they are.He says in his authorized biography,that when he woke up he thought how great it was to see her alive again. John was writing deep heavy poetry when he was a kid,and he started writing his own songs at age 17 not long after he met Paul and was impressed that was writing his own songs. Paul wrote the very pretty song,I'll Follow The Sun at age 16. They didn't know at this age they would make it big and they weren't making a penny from it then.

    and most of the instruments on his 1997 Flaming Pie album, and his 2 recent acclaimed popular albums, Chaos And Creation In The Backyard, and Memory Almost Full. And John Paul Jones, David Gilmore, John Bonham & Pete Townsend all played on 2 songs with Paul and Wings on the last Wings album Back To The Egg, in 1979, and they played in the last Wings concert too in December 1979. And I and many people understandably feel that John Lennon had the best rock voices ever! George Martin said John's voice was one of the best he ever heard, and in May 1967 when The Beatles were recording their song, Baby You're A Rich Man, two recording engineers said they were always fascinated with the sound of John Lennon's voice, and they always wanted to record it live and when they heard him singing this song live they said they couldn't believe how great his voice was and that anyone could sing that well live. And there are many people on message boards saying they can't stand the sound of Robert Plant's and Mick Jagger's voices, and Bruce Springteen has one of the worst voices I have ever heard, he sounds like he's throwing up to a music backing! I have to turn the radio off as soon as he's on, and the same thing with Tom Petty, he has a terrible nasally bad voice! Bob Dylan has never been considered to have a good voice but I can tolerate him. Also, The Beatles were *NEVER* a boy band at all not even in 1963, 1964 and 1965, and they were Mostly a Great *ROCK* Band from the start! They started out playing 8 hours a night for two years in a row playing in the sleazy strip clubs of Hamburg Germany wearing tight leather black pants and jackets, cursing and smoking on stage, and taking speed pills to awake, and going to bed with many young women groupies. The cleaned up image was a fake joke that their manager Brian Epstein created which John hated and resented the most. There were a lot of rough thugs who came into those clubs, and if they played bad live, they would have beaten the crap out of them playing 8 hours a night for 2 years! Instead they became the most popular successful group in these German clubs even with all of the competition from other groups from England and Germany! They also played live in The Cavern Club for several years. They worked very hard to get where they got! Their cleaned up image was a fake image created by their manager in their early days.When they were touring from 1963-1966 they had sex with even mych more women groupies many who were underage teen girls. Correction, George Harrison is now # 30 on DigitalDreamdoor's Over 100 Greatest rock Guitarists Keith Rchards is # 29.

    I recently read an online article that had an interview with Ernie Isley of The Isley Brothers about a recent tribute to Jimi Hendrix,in which he says that Jimi played for The Isley Brothers & lived with them & that they & he were fans of The Fab Four from the moment they all watched them on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964. I always thought that Jimi was only a later period Beatles fan,I knew he played Sgt.Pepper live the weekend it came out,& he played Day Tripper live also,& several people on different message boards said that when he was asked where the direction of music was going,he said ask The Beatles.

    My step cousin who was born in 1958 saw Paul & Wings in 1976 & he said The Beatles probably were The Greatest Band Ever & my first cousin who was born in 68 (he & his 2 brothers,parents& sister have always been fans)said when I asked him when he was 23 if he still liked them,he said best band that ever was. He told me that when he was at the British Museum where Lennon & McCartney's song lyrics are in a glass case next to Sahkespeare,Dickens,Wodsworth & Keats everyone was like forget them lets go over to the Lennon & McCartney lyrics.

    NME.COM HOME NME News Bob Dylan talks of Beatles friendship Legend admits: 'I'm in awe of McCartney' May 16, 2007 Bob Dylan has spoken in depth about his longstanding friendship with The Beatles and his particular bond with George Harrison. Talking to Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan talked freely about Harrisons struggle to find his voice within the songwriting collective of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. "George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldnt get stuck?" he asked. Dylan highlighted the writing talents of Harrison, saying: "If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, hed have been probably just as big as anybody." Speaking against popular belief, the singer also denounced any rumours of competitiveness towards Lennon and McCartney, asserting, "They were fantastic singers. Lennon, to this day, its hard to find a better singer than Lennon was, or than McCartney was and still is." Nodding his cap to McCartney in particular, Dylan concluded: "Im in awe of McCartney. Hes about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And hes never let up... Hes just so damn effortless.

    Entertainment Home Arts/Life Entertainment Syd Birrell discovers Beatles in 2009 Posted By WERNER BERGEN , EXAMINER ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR For most of Syd Birrell's music life it has been about "learning about Bach and how to direct an orchestra," he says. Sure he knew and heard about the Beatles but it wasn't until a year ago that the director of The Peterborough Singers "discovered" the Fab Four. Now he's a convert to the extent that the Peterborough Singers will present a concert of Beatles music on Saturday, Feb. 27 at Calvary Church, Lansdowne St. W. The Singers will be presenting 25 songs in two hours in various combinations including the 100- MUSICerformed by Cosima Grunsky voice choirs, various smaller ensembles, duets, and solos, Birrell, said in anExaminerinterview. The choir will also be joined by a full band of musicians: Andrew Affleck -bass guitar, Barry Haggarty -guitar, Curtis Cronkwright -drums, Paul Grecco -keyboard, Rob Bulger - guitar, Doug Sutherland -trumpet, Marlowe Bork -trumpet and Steve McCracken sax/clarinet. "They're all Beatles nuts," said Birrell. In fact Haggarty recorded an album at Abbey Road, the same studio the Beatles used. Master of ceremonies will be Mike Melnik, of Kruz-FM, who is also a Beatles nut, said Birrell, who will share Beatles stories with the audience. There will be some special guests who will also share Beatles stories. Birrell explained a friend in New York City was trying out a new piano in his home overlooking Central Park. "He put music in front of me...Strawberry Fields,"said Birre ll. The view included The Dakota where John Lennon had lived and the original strawberry fields of Central Park. "I got really interested. I find their music incredible. These guys are the Shuberts of the 20th century," said Birrell. "They have really great melodies. They are the greatest composers of the 20th century." Birrell said he searched the internet for Beatles information listened to their albums like Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and the White Album for three months. "I found their music incredible," he said The Singers are known for performing classical music and Birrell said in years to come the music of the Beatles will be considered the classical music of the century. Birrell said the Singers are not trying to replicate the Beatles but we're "celebrating what the songs mean to us." He said some of the music had to be changed because the audience wouldn't be able to sing along in the keys the songs were originally written in....including Hey Jude. There will be displays of memorabilia and even trivia opportunities (Why is Feb. 7, 1964 important?). - - - Concert facts What: Come Together!

    On Last FM. The Rolling Stones only had 80 members of their fan group in 2007, The Beatles had over 2,000 which is now over 11,000 the average age of fans is 22 more guys than girls and they are from all over the world! In 2006,2007 and 2008 The Beatles were the # 1 most listened music artists on Last.FM and they are very popular on YouTube and Rate Your Music where many male and female fans in their teens and 20's call them The Greatest Rock Band Ever! The Beatles wrote *plenty* of great rock songs including hard rock on The White Album and Abbey Road and as many have rightfully pointed out Paul invented heavy metal with his 1968 song Helter Skelter and people have also said John's I Want You She's So Heavy on Abbey road was also one of the first heavy metal songs and John's great hard rocking especially for 1968,Revolution. Even in their early days they wrote some great rockers that were very rocky for the times, as The All Music Guide said,in their very good review of Past Masters Volume 1 that they proved they could rock really really hard,with John's I Feel Fine from late 1964 which featured the very recorded feedback guitar on a rock song,and Paul's great blues rocker,She's A Woman also from late 1964,and what they called the peerless I'm Down which is Paul's screaming rocker from mid 1965 which they performed even harder rocking, and screaming in August 1965 at Shea Stadium. Also John's You Can't Do That from early 1964,is a great rock song, so is I SAw Her Standing There Day Dripper,Paperback Writer, And You're Bird Can Sing, She Said She Said,Taxman,Oh Darling,Hey Bulldog etc!

    As The All Music Guide says in their excellent Beatles biography "That it's difficult to summarize their career without restating cliches that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans, to start with the obvious,they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century." "Moreover they were among the few artists of *any* discipline that were simultaneously the best at what they did *and* the most popular at what they did." THey also say as singers John Lennon and Paul McCartney were among the best and most expressive in rock. Also on an excellent site,The Evolution of Rock Bass Playing McCartney Style by Dennnis Alstrand,Stanley Clarke,Sting,Will Lee,Billy Sheehan,George Martin and John Lennon are quoted saying what a great,melodic and influential bass player Paul has always been' And Wilco's John Stirratt was asked in Bass Player which bass players have had the most impact on his playing and the first thing he said was, Paul McCartney is one of the greatest bass players of all time,if you listen to what he was tracking live in the studio it's unbelievable." "With his tone and musicality he was a huge influence,he covered all of his harmonic responsibilities really well but his baselines were absolutely melodic and inventive." And in an online 1977 Eric Clapton interview,Eric Clapton In His Own Words he says that there was always this guitar game between John and George,and he said partly because John was a pretty good guitar player himself.He played live with John as a member of John's 1969 Plastic Ono Band. And there is a great online article by musician and song writer Peter Cross,The Beatles Are The Most Creative Band Of All Time and he says that many musicians besides him recognize Paul as one of the best bass guitar players ever.He too says that John and Paul are the greatest song composers and that to say that John and Paul are among 2 of the greatest singers in rock and roll is to state the obvious,and that John,Paul and George were all excellent guitarists and that George is underrated by people not educated about music but that ERic Clapton knew better,he also says that both John and Paul played great leads as well as innovative rhythm tracks. John Lennon co-wrote,sang and played guitar on one of David Bowie's first hits Fame in 1975 and David invited John to play guitar on his version of John's beautiful Beatles song Across The Universe.Brain May,Ozzy Osbourne,and Liam Gallagher and many more call The Beatles The Greatest Band Ever. Also on MusicRadar Tom Petty,Joe Perry and Richie Sambora in What The Beatles Mean To Me all say how cool and great they thought The Beatles were when they first saw them on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964 when they were just teen boys,Richie was only 5.Tom Petty said he thought they were really really great. Robin Zander of Cheap Trick said he's probably one of the biggest Beatles fans on the planet.Brad Whitford of Aerosmith said that a lot of that Beatles influence comes from Steven Tyler's collaborartion with Mark Hudson both whom are absolute Beatles freaks and he said I guess the goal is to try and emulate probably some of the best music of the last 50 years which has to be The Beatles.

    The Boston Globe has an online article from March 2009,called I Confess I Dont Like written by all of their music critics and Luke ONeil wrote that when people talk of classic bands they dont like theyre really speaking in coded language.He said for example I dont like The Beatles. is the same as saying,Im a liar he said but when I say I dont like Led Zeppelin theres no subtext. He then says a lot of it has to do with Robert Plants fiendish helium-powered caterwauling. He says he tends to prefer bands with vocalists not police sirens in tight pants.He also said the lyrics which run the gamut unimaginative doggerel to too-imaginative fantasy goofs dont help. He then says sure they inspired a lot of great bands,but should we not then hold them accountable for the thousands of downright awful imitators theyve inspired? Rememner that whole hair metal thing in the 80s? He says who do you think put the bustle in those dudes hedgerow? And grunge? He says that was basically goateed Led Zeppelin on Smack.

    Led Zeppelin sound horrible! I'm not saying they aren't very good musicians because that would be ignorant to deny it,but it doesn't matter because it just means they played their very sh*tty sounding "music" very well! They are one of the few bands or artists that I can't stand to listen to for even a half of a second,I have to get up off of my chair and turn them off immediately before I smash my 3 year old very good stereo receiver into a million pieces!They make Van Halen sound like a fantastic band and actually some of their songs from the late 70's-early 80's are kind of good and I don't have to turn the radio station. I'm not alone in this either I have found many people even many heavy metal fans who hate them too,many of these people have said they hate Robert Plant's often screaching and screaming "vocals",banging around noise with no creative artistic quality,no beautiful melodies and harmonies,some say that a lot of Robert Plant's lyrics are simple like a teen boy wrote them,and that they ripped off many blues riffs from old blues songs. Rolling Stone was right about not liking Led Zeppelin in the first place,they should have stuck to it! There is an online interview with John Mendelssohn in rockcritics.com in which he was asked if his feelings about Led Zeppelin 2 had changed,(he gave a bad review to their first album that was published in his college newspaer and Rolling Stone too) and he said certainly not and that he hates it more confidently than he did at the time.He said all that infernal screaching! All of that showing off on the guitar! And he also said all of those interminable versions of Joan Biaz songs! And not a trace of the things he adores(this is what I hate about them too!)melody,vocal harmony,expressive musicianship and intelligence or at least wit.That is everything The Beatles had,even though their early lyrics were simple their chords, and their arrangements,were not,and they always had beautiful melodies and harmonies and creative quality in their music even in a lot of their rock songs He said that he always believed that for an act to be ultra-delux,it need not only sound terrific but look terrific too as Elvis,The Beatles and the early Who all did. I have had the misfortune to hear at least 8 or more Led Zeppelin songs,and I don't judge bands based on only hearing a few bad songs,and even if I ever heard any Led Zeppelin songs I liked it wouldn't change my strong dislike of them because out of those 8 or more songs,2 are just OK but the others are so dreadful! Their songs Black Dog,Whole Lotta Love and Rock and Roll are unbearably terrible,in rock and roll they just have banging around noise with no creative quality (as they do in most of their "music" I have heard,) and Robert Plant screams like a retarted monkey.If this what rock and roll is all about we are all in big trouble! Cream,The Doors,The Who,Jimi Hendrix Band Company all had good songs,they are a million times better than Led Zeppelin & The Beatles are a Zillion times better!

    First he's doing Glostenbury and now he's doing an album? And here I thought that he didn't want to tour with Zep because his throat couldn't hold out. Evidently not. Sorry to say this because Plant is by far one of the best frontmen in rock & roll history and has been one of my all time favorites, but I lost all respect for this man. Does anyone else find the title of his album to be highly ironic in light of his telling off Page when asked to do the one-off Zep Tour? Besides 'Piop'? Anyone? *crickets chirping... Uh...guess not.

    Also in an excellent Beatles book Ticket To Ride by Denny Somach where so many other well known popular respected rock musicians and artists are interviewed about The Beatles praising them including Jimmy Page,Brian Wilson who says he's always loved The Beatles. And Brian Wilson called John & Paul the greatest song writers of the 20th century on a 1995 Nightline Beatles tribute show,(which had on music artists from every type of music,a young black jazz musician,a middle aged black opera singer,Steve Winwood,Meatloaf,and classical violnist Isak Perleman,who said he plays his children Bach,Beethoven Mozart and The Beatles)and he played With A Little Help From My Friends on the piano and he said he just loves this song. He also said that Sgt.Pepper is the greatest album he ever heard and The All Music Guide says in their Beach Boys biography,that Brian had a nerveous breakdown after he heard it. Brian also said that when he first heard The Beatles brilliant 1965 folk rock album Rubber Soul he was blown away by it.He said all of the songs flowed together and it was pop music but folk rock at the same time and he couldn't believe they did this so great,this inspired him to make Pet Sounds. John Lodge and Justin of The Moody Blues are interviewed in this book and Bill Wyman and Ron Wood says how The Rolling Stones became good friends with The Beatles in 1963 after John and Paul wrote 1 of their first hits,the Rock n Roll song,I Wanna Be You're Man. Ron Wood was asked what his favorite Beatles songs and he said there are so many apart from the obvious like Strawberry Fields I Want To Hold Your Hand is one he said he used to like a lot ,and he said he really loved We Can Work It Out.He also says that The Beatles used to have a radio show every Friday where they played live and spoke and he would never miss an episode. He said infact whoever has the rights to those shows should dig them up,because they are incredible. Justin Hayward says that the album he always really loved ,and he said it was when they started experimenting with chord structures ,was A Hard Day's Night.He says they began to move away from the standard 3 chord thing and just went into more interesting structures .He said A Hard Day's Night was the album for him and their song If I Fell was the song.He said it started in a different key to how it ended up,and it's a beautifully worked out song and that there are some songs on that album that were very emotinal and evocative. He said that for everybody just starting to write songs as he was,it was a real turn on and eye opener.

    And George Martin himself said in an online interview I found around 2002 said that he has worked with many different music artists but that he has never known or worked with anyone as brilliant as The Beatles! He says in his biography All You Need Is Ears he refutes that he was the one who had most to do with The Beatles music. He admits most of the ideas came from them. And if anyone ever reads the excellent book,The Beatles Recording Sessions by Mark Lewisohn which is a very detailed music diary of of every recording session in their amazing only 8 year career, which has interviews with their recording engineers,tape operators,George Martin quotes,and a very good interview with Paul in the beginning,they would see how truly creative,and innovative especially John and Paul were in the recording studio and that most of these great musicial ideas came from them. George Martin was also once inerviewed on a rock station Beatles program and he said what is clearly obvious and true, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were incredibly talented people(and he said it like he still couldn't belive it.), they both were extrodinarily talented song composers and great singers.And notice how Ringo working with George Martin for 8 years didn't turn him into a brilliant song writer like John and Paul,and George Martin has produced many other music artists but non of them have had as much critical acclaim,success or popularity as THe Beatles!

    The Beatles wrote, played and recorded so many great critically acclaimed, popular songs and albums of all different styles of music and wrote about 50 or more years worth of mostly great music in just an 8 year recording career. When The Beatles were playing live in 63,64, 65& 66 they had very limited primitive sound systems at the time,only 100 watt amplifiers,(and George Harrison says in the excellent video series,The Beatles Anthology that special 100 watt amplifiers were made for their August 1965 Shea Stadium concetts,and he said they went up from the only 30 watts before!) no feedback monitors so they couldn't even hear themselves play and sing(yet they amazingly managed to sing and play in sync and in tune with each other anyway!) plus all of the screaming from the crowds. In their January 1969 live rooftop concert they sounded great, the sound systems had improved some by then ,although still pretty primitive compared to today's, and there were no screaming crowds anymore. When I was a teenager I met 3 people who saw The Beatles in concert, 2 saw them in 1966 and 1 saw them in 1964, they all told me they could see and hear them and that they were great. On the site Artist Facts in The Rolling Stones section a guy Steve from Canada said he saw The Beatles in concert in 1966 and The Rolling Stones in 1996(and the sound systems by then were a million tines better!) and he said they both were great but he said The Beatles were The *GREATEST* Band ever! And former Kiss guitarist Bob Kulick who produced the heavy metal tribute Beatles album,Butchering The Beatles, said he saw The Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1966 and he said he only heard them in bits and pieces but he could hear parts of Baby's In Black and Paperback Writer and he said they sounded amazing. He also calls them the *GREATEST* band ever.

    Also, classical composer Leonard Bernstein called John and Paul the greatest composers of the 20th century so did Elton John on a 1991 CBS Morning news show,he was asked who he musically admires and he said you can talk about your Rogers and Hammerstein but for the quanity of quality songs that Lennon and McCartney wrote in that short period of time,he said he thinks they were the greatest song writers of the 20th century.Brian Wilson said this too on a 1995 Nightline Beatles tribute show. The Beatles are in the Vocal Hall of Fame and John Lennon and Paul MCCartney are in The Song Writing Hall of Fame( I checked the web sites for both Halls of Fame and so far no members of Led Zeppelin are in them) and they were awarded about 20 prestigious Ivor Nevello awards as great singers and song writers in just a remarkable 8 year recording career,John and Paul won the first one in early 1964! They also won an Oscar for their film score of their Let It Be Film in 1970.

    The Beatles revolutionized popular and rock music and were very innovative,prolific and creative,more than any other group. And their great timeless songs are the most covered in music history by everyone from jazz musicians,classical,Motown,rock,pop and even heavy metal recording and playing their great timeless music. Many academic musicologists and music scholars have done serious studies,analyses and praise of their great timeless music,like university of Penn gradutate musicologist Alan W.Pollack who did an extensive 11 year detailed analysis of every Beatles song.He says he hadn't even listened to The Beatles in 20 years until they came out on CD for the first time in 1987. And university of Michigan music professor and musician Walter Everett who wrote the 2 volume,The Beatles As Musicians:The Quarry Men Through Rubber Soul and The Beatles As Musicians:Revolver Through Anthology.And British musicologist and classical composer and music professor (who is dead now)Willifred Mellers 1973 book,Twilight Of The Gods:The Music Of The Beatles,and he also wrote about Beethoven,Mozart and Bob Dylan. And award winning music professor Dr.Glen Gass who has been teaching a course on what brilliant composers The Beatles were and a rock music course at Indiana University School Of Music since 1982.Dr.Gary Kendal's Beatles course is the most requested at North Western university ,university of California also has one and Oxford university had a recent Beatles course. How many serious music scholars and award winning music professors are teaching and writing serious academic works studying and prasing what "brilliant" composers Led Zeppelin or any other rock band were?

    Meh, his solo stuff has never really impressed me all that much. And even though so many people thought the album he did with Alison was fantastic, I didn't care for it that much to be honest. I wanna see Jimmy doing some stuff.
