Zep is what got me playing drums. My dad had all their albums on vinyl and they were constantly being played in the house when I was a kid. My dad was a drummer and my mom got him a new kit when I was 6. That's when I started playing. "When the Levee Breaks" was the first real rock song I could play on the drums. Not crazy technical, I know, but I still love that beat.

To say Bonham was an influence on me is an understatement.

When The Levee Breaks has that unearthly huge drum sound.  :metal And Bonham played not bad either.

Just want to say that Wearing n Tearing, from Coda, is a TAC Top 10 Zeppelin tune.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

Killer track for sure, but I could probably name 20 I'd place ahead of it.
Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?
And TAC can suck it  :biggrin:, this is heavy in all the right places.  :tup

I have a rep at work for foot drumming to songs at my desk (we listen to Pandora on shuffle all day in the background), and When the Levee Breaks is one of the two LZ songs that I cannot not foot drum to (The Ocean being the other).  :metal

I just listened to 2 of Robert Plant's new songs from his new solo album. Very soul filled music that reminds me Zeps early
albums.

I was really a HUGE Zep fan back in the day and loved all of the albums but IV has something about it...a quality that spoke to
millions of listeners over generations, that is maybe only rivaled by Dark Side Of The Moon in terms of being able to transport
you to a different place. It's the kind of album that needs to be in the time capsule that floats around in space so 1000 years
from now the aliens will be able to hear it.

Haven't heard a note yet, but plan on getting this. I've loved ever album he's done since 1993's Fate Of Nations and about half the songs on the albums before that.

I'm hoping the gig we want to catch in February doesn't run smack in the middle of our Marillion show.

10 Years Gone is one of my favorite Zepp tracks...

 :tup Same here. I've been getting back into Zeppelin over the past year. Physical Graffiti and Houses are my two favorite albums. I think PG may have the edge over Houses, though. The Rover, Wanton, Houses (oddly enough), Trampled, Kashmir, and Ten Years Gone, especially. Also one of my favorites to play, as well.

the guitar solo in 10 Years is timeless.

a recent Zeppelin  "Retrospective" done by some YouTubers, some may find entertaining.
