you should be honored to lose your hearing listening to the greatest band in the history of music.
Led Zeppelin is the greatest band in the history of music. And I've listened to all of them. It's too bad that somewhere along the line they turned rock music into pop music. There are no rock bands that compare to the bands of the past, and you have to wonder why we don't have bands like that anymore for the current generations that appreciate that music.
My guess is that pop music makes more money, and since all the record companies are run primarily by advertisers as are radio stations, we're probably going to look back for music forever and never really have bands that compare going forward.
I think U2 came closest to keeping "real Rock'n'Roll" alive, but agree. Rock is dead, and all that is left is Pop and pretenders.
I love Zep, and I know you will jump all over me for saying this, but after so many years, Robert Plant's vocals have become somewhat annoying. The Page-Bonham-Jones trio is certainly second to none. Personally, I'd give the nod to Entwistle/Moon rythym section over Jones/Bonham, but it's almost apples to oranges in many ways.
As you know, my band from that era was The Who. That's where the "moon" in my moniker comes from.
Long Live Rock!
Moon's a rock fan. Who knew? Well, who are you..who, who who who. LOL I have to admit, I did not know that your name was because of Keith Moon. That's so cool. If you watch the Kennedy Center Honors they did the Who, I believe maybe last year. It was awesome. They do have some really great music. This year they did Led Zeppelin, and Moon's son was part of a band that was honoring them. That was so great, and you could tell that they adored him. I'm not sure how happy they were with Kid Rock, but it's a good show if you haven't seen it.
Just goes to show your impression of people may not be who they really are at heart. And, btw, Heart did Stairway to Heaven. lol I think I see you in a whole different light as a rock fan. IMO rock fans are inherently sensitive people. Just another side to you, Moon. :)
