That was a great show, caught it in Detroit, at the Palace Muffy. The last time I saw Zeppelin before that was 1978 @ the Stadium in Chi-town. That was more like a circus. The Page Plant show was a musical journey. Thanks for the memory.
Markus - I have a pal in Savannah that probably has more LZ memorabilia that most people on the planet. If you like, I can hook you up. Live concert footage, out takes, scrapped songs, photos, etc. Even "objects" from their tours and promotional items. Same with Heart, Skynyrd, and a long list of bands.

I recently bought Utopia with Todd Rundgren "RA" on LP. I wanted to refresh my memory of listening to this in 8-track form back in the early 80's. My favorite songs on it are Hiroshima (which reminds me of Manhattan Project) and Singring and the Glass Guitar. Does anyone know of this album, or what happened to Todd Rundgren?

I have strong memories of listening to it when it was new. I had borrowed it from my high school pal. We couldn't get over the fierceness in the lyrics of "Hiroshima."
There is so much good Utopia to listen to. Todd is still going with various projects , recordings, and tours. He lives in Hawaii.
Ever locate a good orthodontist?
Love your quote Muffy. That's me sometimes...

As I was getting ready to leave the office today one of my teachers was holding auditions for "Jazz Band" and one of the female marching band percussionists was waiting to be auditioned for kit. Sensing that she was nervous I struck up a conversation, of course asking who her favorite drummers are.

Her first was the "drummer for TOOL," followed by the "drummer for Dave Matthews" and finally "the drummer for Rush." Of course I was delighted that she mentioned "that fellow."

Now it just so happened that I've been going through a very stressful and emotional time lately and that just this morning I played "Moving Pictures" to elevate my mood. It indeed took the edge off the morning. I again realized that this particular Opus is in fact a perfect work of art. Every note, every crescendo, everything about it is absolute perfection. It's like a Rembrandt or a Michelangelo...there's nothing about it that can be improved. Anyway, I digress...

I was so moved that a 15 year old mentioned him that I felt compelled to eject the CD from my computer and give it to her. I'd like to think that it will inspire her the way it touched me when I was 15.
A wonderful, random act of kindness there, VU.

I sense that there are quite a few of us lately that have had positive experiences by going back and re-listening to some classics.
I just finished listening to U2's new album "Sings of Innocence". It is a good album that hearkens back to some of their earlier works with a maturity of their new style. I had fallen out of listening to them, but I was quite impressed with this new release.
I never got into U2, I kind of remember them in the early 80's with a song named "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (I think that was them) I just didn't get into them.

or was it "New Years Day" I am terrible with matching bands and songs, unless I really got into them Big Grin

They sang both of those, they are on the album, "War".
