Jumpin' Jack Flash Posted May 25, 2009 Share Posted May 25, 2009 So, let's just say that for a second that Bonzo didn't die in 1980. And that Led Zeppelin actually started and completed their North American tour. What do you think their subsequent studio album would sound like?I have two theories.Theory #1: They would continue in the same direction as on In Through the Out Door only adding much heavier synth usage and slightly drifting into the Prog Rock genre A la post-1981 Rush...or Theory #2: From CODA, I can tell that Jimmy and John wanted to continue in a much heavier direction after ITTOD [Walter's Walk and Wearing and Tearing bordering on Punk] and they wanted to prove to the world that they can rock as hard, if not harder than the contemporary Punk bands. Also, I remember Jimmy saying he wasn't too happy with the way that songs like All my Love from ITTOD turned out like. So I think they would produce a very heavy record kinda like Presence, but much much more abbrassive. Personally, I love ITTOD and it's one of my favourite albums of all time and it really is a fitting ending to Zeppelin, but I just can't help but wonder what it's follow-up would've sounded like.
