Led Zeppelin @ Royal Albert Hall 1970

rah21

Led Zeppelin was the greatest live band ever to grace the face of the Earth. Period. As a long-time aficionado of these incredibly talented blokes, I have poured countless hours into scrutinizing their every recorded note.

Led Zeppelin contributed considerably to the soundtrack of my youth – fueling fantasies of Tolkein-inspired legendary conquest, triggering amorous dreams of sqozen citrus out-of-bed experiences, and forcing me under periods of demonic possession (where I was compelled to perform Jimmy Page air guitar simulations).

rah3The 1/9/70 Royal Albert Hall concert was one of the best visually documented shows from the early days and an undeniably energetic performance. Prior to the Internets, the only way to experience a gem like this show was to purchase a CD or video recording of illegitimate origin (ROIO). One had to navigate through a labyrinth of less than scrupulous vendors and bootleg manufacturers (whose quality control was quite erratic). The WWII Axis-Power nations of Germany and Japan provided consistent quality, while the recordings from their fascist cohort Italy varied considerably. That was the old days.

The clip below contains Led Zeppelin performing two badass 50’s Eddie Cochran covers, “C’mon Everybody” and “Somethin’ Else.” Viewing is not recommended for the faint of heart, bitch-ass hoes (including they flat-footed hustlers), or stuffed shirt pretzel-necks with irritable bowel syndrome and/or erectile dysfunctions.

    Peepers,

    What does Zoso mean?

    Dirnov: Suck it punk!

    Timmy: Only Pagey knows for sure. Given the copious amounts of drugs he was ingesting during that time, he may not remember. For instance, when questioned in 1994 on an Australian TV show he said it meant “frying tonight”. One researcher came up with the following:

    Z = This is the symbol for Capricorn, Jimmy’s sun sign. This is similar to the modern day symbol used by astrologers for Capricorn.

    OSO = This is a symbol for 666, as per extract from Crowley’s Equinox. The two 0’s with dots represent 6, and the middle S also stands for 6. It also appears to be similar to the alchemical sign for Mercury. A single circle with a dot in the centre is a well known symbol for the Sun. The S could represent Saturn revolving around the sun.

    Hook on the end of the Z = The Symbol for Cancer (Jimmy’s moon sign)

    Peepers,

    Wow, how do you know all that? I thought Zoso was just his wierd way of answering the question, “How are you doing today, Jimmy?”

    Thanks for the edgimication.

    One more question for the Peepmeister: Why does Jimmy wear his Les Paul strapped so low…isn’t it tough to play the Heartbreaker solo that way?

    Timmy: Your query has puzzled countless aspiring guitarists and wide-eyed teeny boppers for decades. I can provide only my opinion regarding the matter. Jimmy, being an ardent tantric sex magician, probably wished to draw attention to his phallic nether regions. By keeping his guitar in this low slung position, this ensured that every barely pubescent young girl would be fixated on his reproductive organ region.

    Jimmy would have to stoop during the intricate solos to maintain note accuracy. This caused many back and wrist problems later in life – a punishment from God for abusing his power as a musical sorcerer and soul corrupter. He would later abandon his occult practices, sold Crowley’s Boleskine house and the Equinox bookstore, but his damnation had already been finalized.
