Zep is relevant as nostalgia. About it. Louis Armstrong's music is used in thousands of soundtracks and gets more regular radio play. Doesn't make him "relevant". By your standards Beethoven is relevant.

You don't have the luxury of discounting Hammer Of The Gods. If the stories weren't true, lawsuits would have ensued.

As to Bonham, he was an okay drummer but no modern drummer looks up to him as a giant anymore than they do Kieth Moon. They were more well known for their partying and hotel destruction than they were for their drumming. You're still living in the '60s.

Relevancy for musicians is not based on sentimental baby boomer nostalgia for the good old days. It's based on ability to evolve and create contemporary work, not playing oldies concerts, and revival shows playing the old top 40 hits.

This thread was talking about race related topics until you jumped in making silly comments equating me with an avatar image, and then doubling down insisting on the pretense that you earnestly believe these flimsy accusations. You're the one who derailed it. If you don't want to talk about anything other than racing,
then don't.
Actually my previous avatar was the John Player Special logo, but thanks for trying.

Saying Bonham was an okay drummer is one of the most fucking retarded statements you've made in this topic.

Let's face it Wally, you're an irrelevant poster who no one likes. You ride on the back of others to get in on the action.

Each post you make gets dumber than the last. Your knowledge of Zeppelin is nonexistent because they evolved over 12 years in incredible ways. They played acoustic and got into synthesizers at the end of 70s.

BTW you might learn something Little Worthless. Who knows! Doubtful really.

The original avatar is the one I'm referring to.

As a non-musician I'm sure you think highly of him. As someone who wouldn't know the difference between a paradiddle and a double stroke roll, you can be forgiven for being so naive. Hundreds of better rock drummers have come along in the interim. His stuff is now painfully dated, quaint even.

My posts have had lots of likes, just not from a tiny contingent of haters. I don't come here for the likes. Luckily for me, although you would like to believe otherwise, you don't get to decide who is relevant or who is liked. That's just your inflated self opinion echoed by the peanut gallery.

What Zep did 45 years ago doesn't qualify them as being relevant in any contemporary sense, no matter how much of a fan you are. Time to put away your hip huggers and platform shoes and start living in the 21st.

Agree. Still not convinced Krap Magnet is not him. Too many similarities. Attitude, convinced he's much cleverer than he is, thin-skinned, mean-spirited, petty, unable to post anything of merit he tries to compensate by crushing people with sheer volume of posts, sucks up to his old mates, takes himself way too seriously, no real sense of humor etc. If not him, it's his identical clone. And he's definitely a pom. All the curry jokes: right out of the British skinhead handbook. All that shite about being in Italy is a red herring.

Also in some views, Rossi wasn’t taken out in Argentina. He did it to himself , just like some people didn’t think he kicked MM in Sepang 2015 while some others believe he did.

If you raise Zarco's DNF, that was his own fault.

MM himself admitted he was at fault.

If every thread about racing followed the topic in a perfect linear fashion it wouldn't be Power Slide. If the forum elected you to arbitrate what is or is not relevant kindly send me a link to that thread. In the meantime tell me which one of these posts is not about racing? I mean of course besides those derailed by you and your little group of would be net nannies.

Not relevant at all. Listen to these guys. This song only went to #1 on the charts two months ago. I don’t hear any Zepplin inspiration though. Do You?

If you were to enroll your children into a music program, you would be taught one of those three. They are the gold standard of their genre.

Beethoven has been taught in music schools all around the world and has sold more albums than Zepplin by infinity. People will still be going to concerts centuries after Zepplin is totally forgotten. Doesn't make him relevant to contemporary rock 'n' roll.
