*Off-topic alert*

GniknuS hit the nail on the head 
A massively underrated drummer is Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon probably has the best drumming for an entire album that I've ever heard.  

He doesn't do anything spectacular in terms of solos or anything, but he's great in the way that Ringo is great because he's just completely rock solid back there. I don't know, it's just my opinion but that's really the one album where all I listen to is the drums.  

YES

Nick is my (other) favouritest drummer a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 

I'm finished now. Everyone else can now safely move back on topic.

Okay in a thread about Zeppelin, where John Bonham played Four Sticks, Moby Dick and When The Levee Breaks among others. *wink*  I agree though, Mason was a solid drummer. 

 

Seriously, is there a thread for debating the greatest drummers of all time? Because I've got opinions, man. a-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I went to my friend's house today, and like me, he collects records.  I brought my copy of Led Zeppelin III, among other albums.  Anyway, we had a pretty good time listening to it, especially because it had been months since I had heard the album.  However, this also served as a reminder that Hats Off To Roy Harper is probably my least favorite Led Zeppelin song ever. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 Normally I'm a fan of dumb/weird recordings, but between Plant's unintelligible vocals, and the chaos of acoustic guitars, it just seems out of place on an album like Led Zeppelin III. a-hard-days-night-paul-7Hey Hey What Can I Do is a far better song and should have ended the album instead of being the b-side to Immigrant Song.  Anyway, this just baffles me and I wanted to see what you guys think about it.  Remember, just my opinion.  Cheers!

Very interesting question, LUL. I like Hey Hey What Can I Do a lot more than Hats Off To Roy Harper as well, but I also think that the former would have been/is better as a b-side than the latter, as Hats Off seems to be more of an album-type track. What I mean here is that Hats Off is more "obscure" in a sense, I suppose, so it wouldn't really be a good decision to make it a b-side in my opinion. 

It's kind like if Revolution 9 was made a b-side instead of appearing as an album track. Not necessarily something you would think of as a good b-side, huh? ahdn_paul_01

*plays Hey Jude*

"Oh, cool! Yeah, let's check out the b-side! It must be at least nearly as good as the first song!"

*puts needle on vinyl*

"Huh. This is interesting..."

*a few minutes later*

"What is this?" a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Well, that's my brief viewpoint on the matter. Hope this is the kind of thing you were looking to see! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Man, I used the term "b-side" a lot in this post. Maybe I should get a thesaurus or something. ahdn_george_08

@WeepingAtlasCedars 

Yeah, I see what you mean there.  After all, b-sides are part of a single, so they should generally be more commercial, like the a-side.  Still, Hats Off is a strange way to end the album.ahdn_paul_01

Also, I found out since I made the last post that Roy Harper is actually the guy who sings Have A Cigar on Wish You Were Here.  Apparently he hung out with a lot of bands during that time period.

Yes Roy was everywhere back then, hung out with lots of people. I have his greatest hits saved on Spotify. 

For songs you should try out "When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease", "Another Day", "Big Fat Silver Aeroplane"... or try out that above Greatest Hits (or Best Of) I mentioned there. I think if anyone likes Pink Floyd they might dig some of Roy's stuff.

Do agree that Hats Off was a weird album ender however.

Waaaait, I forgot Led Zeppelin had a thread! a-hard-days-night-john-3

As some of you (a-hard-days-night-george-10 @WeepingAtlasCedars) may know, I've been meaning to get myself into the Zepp for a while now, and I finally decided to sit down and listen to all their albums in order. (Not all at once. I can hardly do that with the Beatles, let alone a band I've not really heard.)

So far, I've gotten up to Houses Of The Holy, and I'm sad to say I did not really enjoy their first two albums that much. They seem to get better with each, at least for me -- I guess I just found those almost exclusively blues-hard-rock albums a bit boring (never been much of a hard rock person, although I have a much higher tolerance now than I did once, so I'm Getting Better all the time). I like the diversity they display on III, IV, and their first album that actually has a decent title. a-hard-days-night-george-10

It's part of a minor tradition, though - the first four Zep albums all ended with a really bizarre perversion of an old blues classic. (Or a medley of 'em in the case of the first album.)

I'm pretty sure the majority of Bring It On Home is original, although the intro and outro are from Sonny Boy Williamson.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Yeah, they often made their own contributions - the better to claim writing credits!

Also, can I just mention how I love that "Hats Off To Harper" was "arranged by Charles Obscure" 😀

Hehe a-hard-days-night-george-9

I think I'll be investigating Radiohead and/or Jimi Hendrix next. Led Zeppelin was just a project I felt like I needed to embark on. I do mean to get some experience of the classic rock Canon, as you term it.

I'm not a Radiohead fan. If I could recommend some staple artists to dive into, I would venture into 60s California. Great history to go along with the music scene, as well as music legends like Hendrix, The Dead, CSNY (and all variations both before and after) along with all of their friends: Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, The Byrds, and Jefferson Airplane.

Then you've got The Eagles, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, and the rest of that crowd. 

Best of all, The Beach Boys were around the whole time as well. 

@Silly Girl if you ever want to explore new artists, this subsection of rock history has it all.

While he did pass through, @sir walter raleigh, Hendrix was most definitely not part of the California scene.

Hendrix was New York and London. He was an East Coast man, not West Coast.

Big Zeppelin fan here. On the earlier discussion about drummers, another great one is Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins. Listen to his performances on 'Tonight Tonight', 'Hummer' etc and you'll see what I mean. 

My favourite Zeppelin song is The Rain Song. How Page came up with that chord progression is beyond me, it's just Godlike.
