Latest post of the previous page:

Ah! Houses of the Holy. Oh dontcha just love Zep? :grin:

Pagey is very adept at tuning his guitar the way he wants it. I couldn't get near Black Mountainside until I discovered how he tuned his guitar. Grrr! I still can't get anywhere near it.

Saw Stevie Ray Vaughan, George Thoroughgood and Chuck Berry last night on Youtube playing a meddly of Chuck's greatest and it really took me back, oh how time flies...

I apologise for the Rockfacism displayed by my posts but I've just got to get this to all Zed Leppelin fans.
Just copy and paste for 6 minutes and 11 seconds of a 1970 group at the Royal Albert Hall. The quality is amazing; I hope you enjoy.

If it doesn't work blame my tiredness and just go to The Daily Telegraph and click on music; Led Zeppelin's Whole lotta Love is where you want to be.

Err, no the link didn't work, I went to the Telegraph website and did a search, I still couldn't find it.
One of my all time favourite tracks "Whole lotta Love"

Sorry Admin, I haven'y checked FAQ's but I don't know how to embed url's so for Alan C on this one and this time only I've gotta do it for a fellow fan.

I'll say as many Hail Fairies as you want: Promise!

PS Whole Lotta Love is just one of the tracks you'll find in the playlist box on the right.

Right! If you can't see Whole Lotta Love, I've sussed why there's a problem, the page is limited to the number of feeds it has and changes on a daily basis. Expected I now suppose from a daily newspaper in web form, kicks himself then laughs.

The cd's that these tracks are purportedly from are at Rhino UK:

I can't decide which is the best rock song of all times but obviously it is one of Club Penguin's numbers. This is a strong contender:

and with Eddi Reader, singing 'He got all the whisky'.

Oh dear. Confession time. I saw John Martyn in Leeds c 1978/9 and was so bored and unimpressed that I actually walked out. I couldn't stand it any longer. I suppose there's no accounting for taste. Judging by the clip, I'd guess you may also be a fan of Van Morrison. I wouldn't walk out of his concerts......but only because I'd never, ever, walk in. Devoid of talent.

Excuse me, must dash :exit:

I am not quite sure who you are referring to as being devoid of talent Nick, John Martyn, Van Morrison or both?

Speaking as a talent-free person myself :nod: I was referring to Van Morrison, but hey! I don't mind them sharing the assessment :D

Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' is probably No. 1 for me, but I also love 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' and 'Great Gig In The Sky'.

The Beatles 'Elenor Rigby' and 'Norwegian Wood' are also up there with the best.

While I agree with many of the honourable mentions so far ... this one knocks my socks off! CRANK IT UP!

No way I can pick one. My musical tastes are far far too diverse to pick one. I might be able to pick 10 (maybe).

I heard Queen's Seven Seas of Rye on the radio the other day. Must get recognised for being completely different to anything else around at the time and still one of their best.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Very hard to pick just one, but at the moment: Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone".

Well, Jimi Hendrix's version of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" has got to be up among the all-time greats.
