I always thought Thank You kind of sucked. The music is lovely but the lyrics give me second hand embarrassment.

'If the sun refused to shine I would still be loving you' may not seem to be so bad at first, certainly better than 'love, Love Me Do , you know I love you, I'll always be true, so please Love Me Do ', right? But at least Love Me Do is sort of self aware - it's not trying to be any sort of masterpiece ballad. Thank You sounds like an awkward white guy who thinks he's being really poetic but isn't. Oh dear, I ramble a lot.

It took me years to recognize that it opens with the exact same line as Jimi's "If 6 Was 9"

I found this little clip on YouTube which is supposedly the first time George Harrison hears from Led Zeppelin (taken from the Let It Be sessions). I don't know if it really is but given the tone of his voice and the questions he asks it could very well be. Maybe this is nothing special, but I certainly found it quite exciting!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Sounded like dude was really into this new album (makes a point of reading or learning their names, even!) and couldn't wait to get his buddy George hip to the hot jams!

The discussion is probably between George, Michael Lindsay-Hogg and Glyn Johns, @Von Bontee.

Zeppelin had recorded between September and October 1968, being released in the US on 12 January 1969 and the UK in March 1969, so it seems likely that either Lindsay-Hogg or Johns had got hold of the American release.

Maybe someone who's into Led Zeppelin guitar models can help me out with a question about Jimmy Page's Dragon Telecaster.

DragonTele.jpgImage Enlarger

This 1959 Fender Telecaster was used on Led Zeppelin's first album and for the solo of Stairway To Heaven and supposedly one of his friends painted it on him while he was on tour which ruined the guitar, although he salvaged the neck for use on another Tele. My question is what color did the friend paint it.

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

I'm actually not sure what colour his friend painted it, only that it was originally white. Although, on the Fender website in an interview for Guitar World in 1998, he said of it:  

"As for the body, it will never be seen again!"

That leads me to believe that he hasn't shown the body of the guitar in public/had pictures shared of it since his friend ruined it.

Ooh that's right, forgot that Johns was the common factor.

I love the Dragon guitar! Sounded good, looked better.

Glad to see Bron Yr Aur getting so much love here. I thought it was my own private secret discovery.  I've always loved it; partly because it has such a folksy, non-Zep quality.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

Very good song on an amazing album. I remember years ago driving down a misty road in Wales listening to Bron Yr Aur, Ramble On and other folky Led Zep tracks. It was like travelling through Middle Earth.

The lord of the rings connotations are what makes me love Led Zeppelin so much (other than the incredible instrumental work and Plant's incomparable voice) since I've had a lifelong love for that series, starting with the Hobbit when I was very young.

It's certainly a very good one. Probably JPJ's best bass line, and the first one I played when I got my bass. My favourite Zep song has to be The Rain Song though, the composition is just sublime.

I like Rain Song but the extended instrumental bits in the middle drag a bit, without any increase in tension...I'd call it my 4th favourite track on HOTH....I posted my ten favourite Zep funk tracks, maybe the next list should be top ten Zepics!
