I would prefer to hear axl roses take on zep than any of the guys who try to do robert plant impressions and fail miserably, like so.There are plenty of young vocalists out there who could do the job; however, Rose can hardly sing at all, imo. He'd ruin those songs. It would never happen. Page would spend the whole tour cringing.
FWIW 3 days prior in SF, Guns N Roses started playing at 8:07pm!!! Before the sky was dark!alice in chains is a huge band but I think the atmosphere just wasn't right. it was really light outside and because it was seating everyone was really spread out. also I think a lot of people assumed they would come on later because the tickets said the show started at 7:30 and they came on at 7:20. even the opening bands usually come on about 30 after the show is set to start so I think that was their mistake.
that said, I dont think there will ever be anyone who can fill in for robert plant even if they sound exactly like him.
Do you know who's the best Zep cover band right now? Heart! They always do Zep songs for their encore. Ann Wilson is amazing.still, he can probably do a better robert plant that plant himself nowadays. sad but true.
I respect that. Appetite was a good album. Never liked anything else. But that's just me. I cringe when I hear Axl's voice. Zeppelin, in my book, is 2nd only to The Beatles.Oh please. Guns N' Roses was a great band. Nowhere near Zeppelin, but still a great band.
Agreed. He can't hit those signature high notes anymore, but he still has an excellent voice. The album he did with Alison Krauss a few years ago, Raising Sand, was incredible. 'Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar' was good too.Have you seen Robert Plant perform recently? I saw him last year and he sounded incredible. I'm not just saying that as a fan either.
yeah but the atmosphere was just off. a lot of people had not even gotten to the stadium yet and most weren't really paying attention. again, it is their fault for starting the show before the time it said on the tickets.FWIW 3 days prior in SF, Guns N Roses started playing at 8:07pm!!! Before the sky was dark!
I was hoping Alice In Chains would open for them there, but unfortunately not.

was going to mention that. they weren't playing very loud. people were having conversations without having to raise their voices too much. to be honest I dont even thing most of the people there knew they were alice in chains.AIC is the loudest show I've ever seen. .....behind Motorhead.
Same venue, actually, but Motorhead brought in their own PA and used it in addition to the FOH sound. ....and wall of Marshalls that were actually all in use. Way to ****ing loud. Even with earplugs.
yeah, his voice isnt terrible but its also not the same as it used to be. I imagine his range is maybe half, or even a third of what it was before 1973. he cant sing zep songs in their regular keys anymore.Have you seen Robert Plant perform recently?
