  1. Greta Van Fleet

    See, I don't think he's joking at all in any of those parts. I think he just used the interviewer's question as an opportunity to bring them up. He compliments them - but the frustration is very clearly there when discussing the similarities. You can insert all the laughing smileys you want, but if you actually read my post instead - you'd see I acknowledged that Plant compliments them in the same way many here have. Backhandedly.

    He also pointed out that the singer (whatever his name is) claims to have "based his style on Aerosmith", then rolls his eyes. I'm not saying he didn't pay him a compliment - he said he had a "beautiful little voice" or something to that effect. It's quite true - he's a very talented singer with a great tone. But... he also seemed quite frustrated by the degree to which GVF (particularly the singer) emulate the early Zeppelin sound. Close your eyes and that's straight up Robert Plant. All the little characteristics of his voice are there. It seems that's the same response as a lot of people here have had. Obviously they are a great sounding band... the fact you could mistake these for Zeppelin tunes is a testament to that. That's also the biggest turn-off to getting on board with them. There's stealing from single songs (Zeppelin lifted plenty of material in their time depending who you ask)... but these guys go a hell of a lot further than that. It's even closer than the Airbourne-AC/DC comparisons and that's saying something. I'm not down with it.

    Did you listen to it? He's not complimentary. He says he hates their singer.
  4. Skrillex already sort of did this with remaining members of The Doors... it's pretty bad.
  5. Whats next for ac/dc?

    It's half a step down dude. It's really not that much lower. Literally one semitone away from the album. If he was singing a full octave down, the band wouldn't need to change tuning at all.
  6. Whats next for ac/dc?

    The band tuned down a half-step for Brian. Saying he's singing down "at least an octave" is a massive exaggeration.
  7. I doubt Phasma is really dead. Johnson referred to her the "Kenny" of the series for a reason. I had my criticisms and they've been covered already... but: - I wasn't into Leia's space-flying - Fairly disappointed with Snoke and Phasma like most - The Finn/Rose arc was pretty "meh" - I'm not sure I can buy into Kylo as the new top-dog; he's always been a little... bitchy for me - The Porgs would have been totally tolerable.... with about 1/4 of the screen time. A couple of the gags worked though. That being said, I liked this movie. A lot. There were some great scenes in it; especially Holdo's huge moment and the red-salt skimmer scene. The lengthy space-chase didn't seem that outrageous to me... they even acknowledged it was a ridiculous situation to be in. I thought it worked. I don't agree that Ackbar should have had Holdo's moment... notwithstanding the actor's death, he's only popular because he looks like a fish and made it to meme status. We know next to nothing about Ackbar and who he is from the films... Holdo is an actual character, who makes decisions and creates tension within the story. I thought she deserved that moment. I didn't think you were really set up to hate her either, I think you were supposed to realise she had a plan all along. Anyway, it was definitely one of my absolute favourite moments in any Star Wars movie... there were gasps all around the cinema! More than anything - I think this film really opens Star Wars up for a new generation (as it should). TFA paid more than enough service to long-time fans and I appreciate that Rian didn't necessarily set out to make a "Star Wars" film with all the quirks people have come to expect. I get the criticism, but I enjoyed it.
  8. Ask Staff Anything!

    Hey @vloors, it's a temporary notice for all members lasting a few weeks. It should only appear once per day and will be removed in 8 days. Apologies if it's felt like an inconvenience; I assure you it's for a very worthy cause that could affect your experience online. Even if you're not in the US, there are flow-on effects for the rest of us globally. I would urge all of our US membership to consider making a call to congress using the form.

    I'm not going to pretend he sounds perfect, but I think the performance is leaps and bounds ahead of the two previous soundboards.

    Would be nice to hear more about the actual show, but most of the suggestions there aren't too far from the mark.
  11. Thanks for tracking and uploading during your busy period @rockphantom. It is very much appreciated!

    Guess I joined just in time for TWAT. Awesome!
  13. RIP Malcolm Young

    I really relate to your words here. Thankyou.
  14. RIP Malcolm Young

    RIP - the greatest rhythm guitarist rock n roll has ever produced. Malcolm Young, human metronome. Just gutted. I tried playing a couple of AC/DC tunes but it's just making me sad.
  15. Did I say that? You seem really desperate to get into an argument with someone, it's kind of sad.
