The ninth Zeppelin album..


Jumpin' Jack Flash

Recommended Posts

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.

I personally feel it'd have turned out like theory #1, but hopefully it wouldn't have turned out like 80's Rush. :tongue2:

I'm actually leaning more towards Theory #2 :P 80s Rush was pretty bad aside from Signals and Moving Pictures which were flawless, imo. I prefer 70s Rush myself though, rock3

Heck yeah. 2112, Rush, Fly By Night, Hemispheres, and A Farewell To Kings is the way to go with Rush.

I think 80's Rush is great, other than Power Windows. It's an acquired taste, really. If you asked me 1 year ago if I thought Hold Your Fire, hell, even Signals was a good album, I would have laughed at you. But the more chances I gave, the more I liked it.

But Power Windows just plain sucks.

Yeah, I suppose. However, I liked Signals from day 1 :P Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures and Signals are the only Rush albums I dig from the 80s [studio, mind you].

Coda was a collection of outtakes that didn't make the final records, hence the heavier sounds

ITTOD was probably the direction they were heading

Wearing and Tearing, along with Ozone Baby and Walter's Walk were all recorded during the ITTOD sessions and they were slated to be on that album. However, due to medium restraint it never came to fruition ;)

No John Bonham= shit

If you read my post, you'd know that Bonzo would be alive and well in this hypothetical situation :)

Also, this

From Mr. Page:

" felt that In Through the Out Door was a little soft. I wasn't really keen on "All My Love". I was a little worried about the chorus. I could just imagine people doing the wave and all of that. And I thought, that's not us. That's not us. In its place it was fine, but I wouldn't have wanted to pursue that direction in the future. "

Ha, I'm listening to "All My Love" right now (on the Classic Rock Music Choice), and I think it's fine. It kind of gives me the same feeling that "Kashmir" gives me, though I'm not the biggest fan of "Kashmir".

I actually really dig All My Love, the solo is just beautiful :) And what's to say about Kashmir? It's motherfucking KASHMIR! rock1 B)
