Led Zeppelin

August 30, 2007 at 3:43 pm (Rock)

It appears that the rumored Led Zeppelin reunion is not happening.

———

Fact:  The members of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath used to jam together back in the 1970s.

Rumor:  Some of these jams were recorded.

I recently asked Tony Iommi about this rumor and he seemed to think the tapes of these jam session could exist.  If anyone out there has these tapes, you need to cash in and release them.

I am heading out to Vegas again…  hope to meet up with Casey Chaos for lunch or maybe a drink or 2.

Put “We Got The Bait” by Amen (Casey’s band) on your iPod today.  So, so good.

I have been way stressed lately… being a total control freak is tough sometimes… I am attempting to let go of some of this junk… things may suffer because of it or they may get better. Time will tell…
let the cards fall where they may… and don’t forget to roll the cameras, I am ready for my close up – yeah, TM on TV? not really, but something close could happen. There has been a green light on the 1st step.

For the record, we don’t get paid for the podcast. We have had sponsors that paid us but 80% of the time we are not making money off this. SO if you are going to complain about our show on your favorite messageboards, saying we suck at our jobs, go get a life. The podcast is not my job, it is my hobby. I do it for free because it is fun. Start your own damn show… a lotta of the haters already have. Funny how no one listens to them… you would think a good podcast would attract listeners right???? yet, the show you think is unprofessional and bad has been the number 1 hard rock / metal podcast on iTunes for 2 years straight… that must be because we suck… I can’t think of any other reason.

IF YOU DON’T THINK I ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, GET YOUR DAMN SHOW ASSHOLES!

it’s official DLR is back in VH

August 13, 2007 at 12:13 pm (Rock)

The press conf just ended. Dave and Eddie both sported short haircuts. At times it felt somewhat tense to me.

The is a new band, not a reunion. They hinted at a possible new album and said, unlike the recent Police tour, it is not a one. Sounds like Dave is back in the fold for awhile

The set list has been hand picked by Wolfgang.

“Michael Anthony is a part of the band’s great history, just like other VH alumni, but he is not here” – DLR

DLR made jokes about being fired from radio and also mentioned Valerie Bertinelli.

Wolfgang’s favorite band ACDC.  Eddie said, “I turned him on to them.”  Wolfgang also likes Tool and the White Stripes.

OK – Fun stuff…. let’s see if the tour ends up happening.
