    It’s right up there with the old crooner Pat Boone version on his “In a Heavy Metal Mood” CD. Blackmore guested and did the solo on that one.

    These guys specialized in Zep covers with a Reggae/Elvis twist. Very cool and not being a fan of Reggae, I do enjoy their stuff. Probably because of their approach to the covers that are familiar. I actually have their first CD. Great stuff.

    Nice version but I preferred a faster version.
    They call themself D.Zeppelin but the singer looks like Elvis.
    They play reggae but the guitar player has short and blonde hair!

    Well that’s 5 minutes of my life I’ll never get back!

    Why oh why???!!

    I’d rather hear a JLT version of this, and thats sayin something.

    Just my personal opinion here, but I don’t think any other band should cover SOTW, it’s not their song. I’m not even fond of an MKIII version of this song.
    I hate it when other bands sing “We all came out to Montreux”, no you didn’t, it was Purple MKII!!!!

    Anyways, just my opinion.

    “Jamaican records with a mobile…” Heh heh. Clever.

    Some interesting rhythm work. I like the “Smoke! Smoke!” toward the end.

    Although it often seems and feels different………….to me and others………

    Im indeed 43 but looking 34……..

    Don,t know for sure how I did that….

    No smoking, not ever.So?
    Lots of sport/exercise.So maybe it does pay?
    No marriage, no kids?

    But , then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    It was only yesterday I approached Jaime, a African looking Princess…………in my local supermarket.
    For some time I kept staring/smiling, doing nothing.

    I always wondered, me a guy who unintentionally resembles James De La Brie a bit and also looking the Jesus part in summer(bleeched and beardy) and she, dressed in black leather jacket and long black hair.An African princess meets Joyce Kennedy(Mother’s Finest)but younger.

    Would that not be nice?

    She reacted very friendly but already committed for about 11 years that gave no perspective for my Romantic desires.

    What is the link?

    Where’s “Purple Princess”? Did she already leave this building?

    Just kidding……

    Nothing on TV and I have to hamper you people now and then.
