I saw this in the theaters a few weeks back and it absolutely kicked ass. Yeah, Plant's voice isn't what is was but it wasn't 25 years ago when I first caught him solo either. That being said he still sings great. Once they get a song or two into it you can see they are really having fun. Bonham does an incredible job on drums which really should come as no surprise. The crowd in the theater was hooting and hollering through out. And there was a loud applause at the end. This blu-ray and cd will be a day one purchase for me without a doubt.

Did some research and yes, turns out we are hearing a mostly all-Orange rig (+ a Vox AC30 or 2, as Page rarely leaves home w/o one apparently) on Celebration Day. The late Jim Marshall did deliver the following to Page @ O2 the day before the show, but according to Marshall's Steve Dawson, it was too late for Page & his techs to incorporate them. THen again, other sources say 1 of them was used, the other acted as a standby........

2 LZ-customized 100JH (100w Hendrix sig model/vintage reissue) heads + a cool "Zoso" 4x12. I'd be happy to take them off of Pagey's hands. wink.gif

Just gotta give props to jwebb1970. Anyone who uses Michael Schenker as their avatar is alright in my book. To me, he's the most underrated player of all time.

What about this guy?

Slash is a great player but he gets a lot more recognition than Michael. Slash credits him as an influence.

Yesterday I discovered Buckethead. I am really impressed. I did not know Schenker either (I found out about Buckethead when reading about Schenker). Thanks.

I got into Schenker much later than I did most other rock guitarists - mainly because so many of those I was into listed him as an influence. Glad I did.

Coldplay Live 2012

Im a huge Coldplay fan and have been to two of their concerts. I own all their cds and also own their other concert documentary called Coldplay Live 2003. This concert is presented in pure hd. Its def a must buy for any fan. I bought the bluray which also came with an audio cd which contains the same material. I just got it a few weeks ago but I def see myself watching this over and over.
post #8207 of 8898
I purchased this Coldplay Blu-ray too, haven't watched/listened yet but looking forward to it. Not a "huge" fan but respect the band and like a lot of their music.
post #8208 of 8898
Coldplay is one of the more progressive bands that posts numerous live concerts in 720p on youtube.

post #8209 of 8898
A number of reviews have stated the editing on new Coldplay is so spastic and fast that it ruins the video of the concert.Has anyone found this to be true?

Live and Burn. I bought this DVD thinking it's a current Coldplay concert album with some interviews of the band. Not so! It's a 2011 documentary with small still photos, pans over mixer boards and a stadium, short sound bite interviews with (staff?) people, and background music that is irritating in its repetition. If you want to have everything (about) Coldplay, if you're into where Coldplay came from (England - not London), what they think about being famous and music (they like it - but there's stress), and repetion of brief video clips of a band that is fogged out so it could be anyone (not Coldplay - set extras), then this DVD is for you.

It's a documentary, not a concert DVD.

Amazon has ONE two star rating, no more.

Like I said, Coldplay has a bunch of full concerts in 720p on youtube.
post #8214 of 8898
Not sure if this has got around here but the Stones will be performing with The Boss, The Black Keys and Lady Gaga on Pay-Per-View

Me thinks this could lead to a possible DVD/Bluray given it's there 50th anniversary tour

Enjoy....... lsol

I am confused by this post...no one is referring to this nor the 2003 you mention earlier.

I too ordered the 2012 blu-ray and cant wait to unwrap it!

New Jimi Hendrix Album Planned for 2013

Rolling Stone reports that the new set, dubbed ‘People, Hell and Angels,’ consists of 12 previously unreleased songs that were recorded during 1968-69 while Hendrix worked as a solo artist apart from the Experience.

Describing the tracks as going in “new, experimental directions,” RS says the sessions were planned for inclusion in Hendrix’s never-released ‘First Rays of the New Rising Sun,’ the record he was working on at the time of his death in 1970. It sounds like Hendrix was moving in a more layered direction, incorporating a second guitar into the mix, along with horns, keyboards, and percussion.

I wonder if Tupac is on it? tongue.gif

It's amazing they can still unearth "unheard" Hendrix material, but then again - the guy apparently spent most waking hours in various studios when not performing live.
post #8219 of 8898
I just got done with most of Coldplay 2012. I thoroughly enjoyed the content, sound and pq. Lots of color pop. I saw them a few years ago. I have been going to concerts for forty years, they are one of the best live acts I have ever seen.
post #8220 of 8898
for some days I have been enjoing "Quebec Magnetic" by Metallica. The show is great, picture quality superb, but I have some reservations about the sound. The center is somewhat quieter and I had to raise its volume (now it is fine), and Hammet's guitars sometimes are poorly heard. Anyway , a lot of older stuff, and great fun overall.
